More from Colorado Rockies News

The Colorado Rockies are fresh off a series victory in Atlanta against the Braves (their first since 2005!) and enjoyed an off day in Pittsburgh on Thursday while the Pirates were playing a game in Miami (so there’s an advantage there, right? Guys? …guys?)

Not much news happens on off days, so we’ve got some other good stuff in the rundown today. Here’s what’s going down in this morning’s edition for you:

  • preview the Rockies’ and Pirates’ three-game series in Pittsburgh that begins tonight.
  • Brandon Barnes is starting to heat up after a cold start to the second half.
  • Jordan Lyles is bored with rehab. Like, really bored. He wants to pitch again.
  • Ben Hochman discusses the Rockies (and leaving Denver, super sad) on a podcast.
  • Rafael Ynoa starts a triple play for the Albuquerque Isotopes.

Lots to discuss! Let’s cover today’s news and notes around the Colorado Rockies.
