The Colorado Rockies will play their final road series of the 2019 season, as well as face National League West competition for the last time this year, when they square off with the San Francisco Giants beginning on Tuesday night at Oracle Park.
With just six games left in the regular season, we decided to focus this episode of the podcast on what we’ve seen in September from the Colorado Rockies at the plate. We also take a look at the number of at-bats that have surprised us since the roster was expanded on September 1.
Some of those numbers include the stat line being produced by Garrett Hampson this month. Not only is the versatile Hampson leading the Rockies in September batting, but he has also swiped seven bases, good enough to not only lead the team in the month but the National League as well.
Other numbers we discuss include the number of at-bats that have been given to individual players this month. We look especially at the catcher position when Dom Nunez and Drew Butera have roughly the same number of at-bats this month heading into the San Francisco series. We wonder if that’s a sign that Butera will be back in 2020 as the second catcher, along with Tony Wolters.
