Probable Starting Pitchers

  • After one turn through the rotation, Dakota Hudson (0-1, 0.00 ERA) turned in the best start among Rockies pitchers. The 29-year-old righty through 5.1 innings giving up three runs (0 earned however). His history of limiting hard contact while inducing ground balls was on display against the Cubs as Hudson looked extremely effective. Hudson will look to replicate that success in the unfriendly confines of Coors Field. He will have a tough matchup against a very underrated Rays lineup.
  • Ryan Pepiot (0-1, 9.53 ERA) will take the mound for the Rays as they look to take the series. Pepiot was one of the pieces that came over in the Tyler Glasnow trade and was really solid both in relief as a starter in 2023. His first start of the year wasn't a good one as the Rangers roughed him up to six runs over 5.2 innings. He really struggled to command the zone with four walks, something he has struggled with in his career. The Rockies, unlike yesterday, will need to be patient and hopefully their offense can capitalize on the inefficiencies of Pepiot and take their first series of the year.
