Your morning rundown — news, notes, analysis, and more — on the biggest stories surrounding the Colorado Rockies for this Wednesday, September 9, 2015.

More from Colorado Rockies News

The Colorado Rockies are now in San Diego, and you probably noticed we didn’t post our typical 3-5 things every day over Labor Day Weekend. That, friends, was by design — it was very nice to get away for a day or two (and, for me, to watch the Albuquerque Isotopes in Sacramento against the RiverCats as a fan and not a baseball “expert.”)

But we’re back from mini vacation and travel now, so get ready for a lot more content moving forward,  just like, well, we’ve pretty much done every day this year. And with it, we begin with the rundown for this morning. Here’s what’s going down in today’s edition of the rundown:

  • Nolan Arenado is dealing with a chest contusion.
  • Nick Hundley is dealing with a stiff neck.
  • Justin Morneau‘s best days are (obviously) behind him.
  • Kyle Kendrick had a really big day — 2016 ace???? (Kidding.)
  • Corey Dickerson has returned from a rib injury!
  • The Asheville Tourists are in the playoffs in the South Atlantic League; expect more from us on this all week.
  • September still matters, according to our friends over at Rockies Zingers.
  • September? Forget September! We’ve got the Colorado Rockies’ 2016 schedule right here. Let’s take a look.

Lots to discuss! Let’s cover today’s news and notes around the Colorado Rockies… click on through and let’s begin!
