Your morning rundown — news, notes, analysis, and more — on the biggest stories surrounding the Colorado Rockies for this Sunday, September 6, 2015.

More from Colorado Rockies News

The Colorado Rockies are wrapping up a four-game series with the San Francisco Giants later today, before they head out on the road to San Diego for four more games, and then Seattle for three more against the Mariners (no rest for the weary!).

Before all that happens though — oh, and by the way, Happy early Labor Day! — we’ve got your usual morning dose of Colorado Rockies news. This time, it’s actually quite a bit about minor league happenings. (And yes, that’s partly because I was at the Albuquerque Isotopes’ game in Sacramento against the River Cats on Saturday night!)

Here’s what’s going down in today’s edition of the rundown:

  • Corey Dickerson homered for Albuquerque Saturday night, and is getting close to a return to Denver.
  • Another day, another crazy stat about Carlos Gonzalez.
  • Nolan Arenado has hit six home runs in six days. We take a look at what that all means historically.
  • Jairo Diaz is proving he belongs in the big leagues.
  • Tyler Matzek seems to be settling down with the Isotopes.

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