Your morning rundown — news, notes, analysis, and more — on the biggest stories surrounding the Colorado Rockies for Thursday, September 24, 2015.

More from Colorado Rockies News

The Colorado Rockies are limping to the finish line in 2015 — at first figuratively due to their abysmal record and poor play throughout the year, and now it appears that’s a literal limp, too, as multiple players have gone down with injuries over the past several days.

And, as you often see on bad ball clubs in the last ten days of the season, there are several pieces of shut down news coming in today’s rundown. So buck up, kids! We’re almost through 2015. Just pray for no serious injuries in the last week or so.

Here’s what’s going down in today’s edition of the rundown:

  • Nolan Arenado is shaken after his injury, but OK — and he wasn’t in the lineup Wednesday night.
  • Jon Gray has been shut down (innings limit).
  • Jorge De La Rosa has been shut down (Achilles injury).
  • Happy Birthday, Gonzalez Germen!
  • Quinton McCracken for general manager? Not for the Rockies, but somebody is looking at him for a job.
  • The Rockies aren’t interested in shutting Kyle Kendrick down (and now, because of injuries, they likely couldn’t do that anyways).

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