Not surprisingly, the Colorado Rockies will not be taking part in the postseason for the third year in a row after they finished with a record of 74-87, which was 15.5 games back of the second National League Wild Card Spot.
However, there are seven former Colorado Rockies players that could be participating in the 2021 MLB Playoffs in some fashion.
Former Colorado Rockies reliever Adam Ottavino will be playing for the Boston Red Sox.
Former Colorado Rockies reliever Adam Ottavino will be playing for the Boston Red Sox in the 2021 American League Wild Card Game on Tuesday against another one of his former teams, the New York Yankees.
While he has not been as dominant as he was in his final season in a Rockies uniform or his first season as a member of the New York Yankees, Ottavino pitched better this season than he did last.
He went 7-3 with a 4.21 ERA in 69 appearances with a FIP of 3.96. Those numbers are fairly elevated as in his last 11 appearances in September and October, he had an ERA of 9.72 (10.85 FIP). From the beginning of the season through September 3, he had an ERA of 3.35 (2.89 FIP).
Former Colorado Rockies infielder DJ LeMahieu may be playing for the New York Yankees.
Former Colorado Rockies infielder DJ LeMahieu may be playing for the New York Yankees but he will not be facing his former teammate, Adam Ottavino, and the Boston Red Sox.
Currently, LeMahieu is on the 10-day injured list with a sports hernia. He was just placed on the IL before the final day of the season so he will also be out for the ALDS, if the Yankees make it that far. If the Yankees make it to the ALCS, LeMahieu may be able to rejoin the team then but it will depend on his health.
LeMahieu has had a down year after winning the AL batting title (with a .364 average) and coming third in AL MVP voting in 2020. In 2021, LeMahieu hit .268/.349/.362 with 10 home runs and 57 RBI in 150 games. He has a 1.5 rWAR on the season when he had a 3.1 rWAR in exactly one-third of the games that he played in 2021.
