Your morning rundown — news, notes, analysis, and more — on the biggest stories surrounding the Colorado Rockies for this Saturday, September 12, 2015.

More from Colorado Rockies News

As I’m beginning to write this, the Colorado Rockies are in the sixth inning of a pitcher’s duel (!) in Seattle on Friday night, so consider this rundown just a little bit scheduled out. Oh, and Dustin Garneau just hit a three-run home run!

(You’ll have to forgive me, I got to spend the entire day Friday at Universal Studios on the company dime so I’m kind of tired and not down to wake up early to finish a post!)

Me-me-me stuff aside, this is actually a fairly light news day as far as the Colorado Rockies go. A few roster moves (that we saw coming!!) and a few other notes should get you all caught up on the club Saturday morning. Here’s what’s going down in today’s edition of the rundown:

  • Nick Hundley has been placed on the 60-day disabled list with a cervical sprain, ending his season prematurely.
  • Tom Murphy has been recalled from AAA Albuquerque to (a) take Hundley’s place, and (b) make his Major League debut.
  • Modesto Nuts prospect Ryan McMahon was named to MLB Pipeline’s All-Minor League team, which is a really big deal.
  • Remember Daniel Winkler? The former Colorado Rockies farmhand is recovering from elbow surgery, and his career is about to resume in the big leagues with the Atlanta Braves.
  • Justin Miller is about to make Major League history. Oh, yeah, he’s already made Colorado Rockies history, too.

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