Swipe Left On These Colorado Rockies
Kyle Parker. Whatever happened to Kyle Parker? 0-for-5 with two strikeouts in the last seven days, he’s completely lost any opportunity at an outfield gig on a consistent basis (again).
Jose Reyes. 0-for-12 with four strikeouts in the last week, I’m thinking Jose has about two and a half more weeks in Denver and then it’s time for the Cristhian Adames show in the Mile High City, at least to start next season before Trevor Story does whatever he’s going to do.
Yohan Flande and Chris Rusin. Heading into Rusin’s start tonight, the two had combined for 6.2 innings pitched in the last week, with 10 earned runs allowed on 14 hits and three walks (with four home runs allowed…) against just four strikeouts. That’s… not good.
Remains to be seen how the Colorado Rockies feel about each of these guys for next season, but if Rusin specifically fades too hard at the end of the year, it might take a lot of shine off his 2015 and leave him on the outside looking in come Spring Training. (Flande is ideal to stay in long relief, so I’m not as worried about his bad starts.)
