The Colorado Rockies may need to get another bat to accommodate the designated hitter
When the MLB lockout ends, the designated hitter, in all reality, will likely be in the National League. The Colorado Rockies have said that they are not looking for a strict DH but they would plan on using it as a rotation to give a player a 1/2 day off. For example, when the Rockies were in Texas to face the Rangers to end August and start September, the Rockies used C.J. Cron, Connor Joe, and Charlie Blackmon and moved Joe between DH, first, and left, Raimel Tapia between left and right, Cron between first and DH, and Blackmon between right and DH.
With the versatility of players like Connor Joe, Ryan McMahon, Garrett Hampson, and even prospects like Alan Trejo and Ryan Vilade, the Rockies can afford to have a rotating DH and have some players bouncing around the diamond playing different positions.
However, they had a hard enough time producing a decent offensive output with eight hitters in 2021 so it will be even more difficult with nine … unless they add somebody from out of the organization that will help the lineup out. That player and the others on the Rockies currently could cycle through the DH spot.
