The Rockies offense is hitting for power

The Rockies are currently second in the NL in home runs hit (12) and third in the NL in slugging percentage (.468).

A few Rockies showed that in the D-Backs series as Ryan McMahon had a three home-run game on Tuesday.

McMahon is now nearly halfway to his 2021 home run total of nine as he has four thus far in 2021. Dom Nunez has also hit three home runs, which is more than Rockies catchers hit combined in 2020.

Sam Hilliard has also shown power in his limited action as in his 11 total at-bats on the season, he has three hits, including a triple and two home runs. Chris Owings also has three doubles and two triples as well. But …

Chris Owings is out … at least for the time being

Chris Owings suffered a hamstring injury during the series and, as of this publication, he is listed as day-to-day.

Rockies manager Bud Black provided the media, including Rox Pile, an update on the injury on Thursday but we will likely learn more about it on Friday.
