Your morning rundown — news, notes, analysis, and more — on the biggest stories surrounding the Colorado Rockies for this Monday, September 14, 2015.

More from Colorado Rockies News

The Colorado Rockies pulled into Los Angeles late last night for their three-game series that begins against the Dodgers later this evening (I’m going! I’ll be there! Tweet me if you’re going!).

The Dodgers, who were colder than all hell about two weeks ago, now find themselves in command of the NL West again, and it’s likely they are going to cruise all the way to the playoffs without having to worry again about the San Francisco Giants.

With that — welcome to LA, everybody! — here are a few stories for you in this GLORIOUS Monday morning edition of the rundown:

  • Carlos Gonzalez made a great catch in Seattle, and we’ve got the Statcast of the play.
  • Tom Murphy didn’t expect to get to the big leagues this year, but here he is with the Rockies!
  • Troy Tulowitzki broke a bone on Saturday afternoon for the Blue Jays. No bueno.
  • Take a look at the Asheville Tourists’ experience at McCormick Field (you know, in honor of their playoff run).

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