Daniel Descalso. Hey, look, buddy, I know. Descalso is 3-for-7 this week though, and besides him the bats have gone really, really cold. Cristhian Adames and Justin Morneau are each 4-for-12, so I guess there’s that?

Pitchers facing the Rockies. The Colorado Rockies have struck out 64 times in 228 at-bats across the last seven days. That’s really bad, right? It’s not, like, prodigiously bad, but it is approaching 30% so it’s really not that great.

Dustin Garneau. Garneau isn’t crazy hot (3-for-14), but he does have two homers in the last week, so that’s certainly something we probably never collectively expected to have happen!

Jairo Diaz and Justin Miller. The two have combined for 4.2 innings allowing no hits, no runs, and three walks with seven strikeouts. Both are impressing as power arms late in the pen, and both ought to be considered for bullpen roles next season.

Scott Oberg. Oberg has had a tough rookie season, but the Colorado Rockies keep going to him — so they are obviously counting on him for something next year and beyond. This week, he figured it out, with three scoreless innings across three appearances with the Rox.

John Axford. Three for three on save opportunities with seven strikeouts in three games this week. Axford has gotten back in a good groove, and I’ve gotta give him some credit because things looked bad earlier this year.

Kyle Kendrick. ‘Nuff said right here.
