The Rockies team home run totals

Despite the Rockies offense sputtering this weekend in San Francisco for a total of four runs in three games, they are still tied for 6th in home runs with 13.

That’s mainly because Ryan McMahon, who has five of those 13 home runs. He is currently in a four-way tie for the most home runs in baseball.

That’s an excellent sign for the Rockies as they desperately need McMahon to replace or come close to replacing Nolan Arenado’s bat in their lineup and in this small sample size, he is.

The Rockies team stolen base totals

The Rockies have a few guys who have been stolen base threats to start the season.

Garrett Hampson is leading the NL in steals with four and Chris Owings (currently on the IL) is tied for third in the NL with two.

But Raimel Tapia and Trevor Story, who both are stolen base threats, have only stolen one thus far. Story lead the NL in steals last year but his bat is just starting to get going, as is Tapia’s, so once they get on base more, the Rockies will still likely stay at the top of this category.
