The Colorado Rockies have not been the most watchable team in the sport this season. If you’re a Rockies fan, you know that they haven’t been a great watch in the last four seasons, in general.
This year, their pitching has regressed significantly, their biggest acquisition has been on the injured list for three-quarters of the season, and few of their offensive players (if any) have been above league-average.
Fortunately, for Rockies fans, as the season winds down in the next two and a half weeks, the Rockies could finally be turning a bit of a corner … at least somewhat.
The Rockies could be more interesting in the next few weeks
On the episode of the Rox Pile Rockies Report, Kevin Henry and I discuss how the Colorado Rockies could be a bit more interesting in the next few weeks.
The Rockies have already started using Michael Toglia on an everyday basis at the MLB level, which is a good thing. After a hot start to his MLB career, he has struggled recently but it will help him adjust to playing at the MLB level next season.
But in the next few weeks, the Rockies could see some other good things. Noah Davis was just called up from Double-A Hartford prior to the start of their series with the Cubs. The Rockies could see Ezequiel Tovar in the majors since he was just promoted to Triple-A Albuquerque on a “rehab assignment” after playing in Double-A Hartford for this season.
Kris Bryant also may return from the IL to finish the season out. Kevin and I discuss what he heard inside the Rockies clubhouse about that and why it could happen. We also talk about his exclusive conversation with Rockies GM Bill Schmidt and some of our thoughts on the outlook on the postseason throughout the majors.
