The Colorado Rockies made a huge trade this week at the big league level, and it’s going to affect the Isotopes a lot — namely, in the short term, with several call ups (Justin Miller, Cristhian Adames, Aaron Laffey) to bridge the gap in terms of roster options until the 25-man calms down a little bit.
Additionally, Wilin Rosario is back down in AAA Albuquerque after not being able to get on the field very much in Denver the last couple weeks though we’ll see how long that lasts (not for nothing, he could be a trade candidate in the next day or two, as well!).
Let’s jump in on the ‘Topes…
The last week (3-4): The Topes kept on doing about what the Topes have been doing all year, going 3-4 over their last seven games. The lowlight, for sure, was losing both ends of a doubleheader to the Sacramento River Cats by the scores of 10-0 and 10-1 on Monday afternoon. Yikes.
The Isotopes are now 47-57, and 11.5 games out of first place in the Pacific Coast League’s Pacific Southern division. That means the Topes unfortunately have the fifth worst winning percentage in the 20-team Pacific Coast League.
