Colorado Rockies Roster
- NL West
- Coors Field
Colorado Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon went 2-for-3 with two doubles, one walk, and a strikeout in a 3-0 loss to the Nationals on Sunday. Blackmon was one of two Rockies' to collect multiple hits and he was the only one to notch an extra-base hit. Paolo Espino and company were locked in on the other side and Colorado wasn't able to muster any type of offense. The multi-hit performance was Blackmon's first since September 7. He's now slashing .266/.344/.415 with 13 home runs, 76 RBI, and three stolen bases over 477 at-bats. He's been underwhelming from a fantasy perspective this season, particularly when it comes to power.
Colorado Rockies starting pitcher Jon Gray took the loss on Sunday when he allowed two runs on three hits with two walks and five strikeouts over four innings in a 3-0 loss to the Nationals. Gray wasn't very efficient in this one, needing 70 pitches just to get through his four innings. He coughed up an RBI single to Yadiel Hernandez in the first inning and allowed a solo home run to Juan Soto in the third. The Rockies were blanked on offense so that was enough to give him the loss. The big right-hander now owns an 8-11 record, 4.17 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, and 145:58 K/BB ratio over 140 1/3 innings (27 starts). He'll take on the Giants at home in his next turn.
Colorado Rockies second baseman Brendan Rodgers went 3-for-5 with a double, a home run, two RBI, and two runs scored in a 6-0 win over the Nationals on Saturday. Rodgers put the Rockies on the board in the top of the first inning with a two-run blast off Patrick Corbin, his third home run in the last four games. He later added a double and scored another run. The 25-year-old has been raking over the last 15 contests, slashing .333/.364/.587 with four home runs and 12 RBI over that span. For the year, he's got a solid .288/.337/.480 batting line with 14 home runs and 47 RBI over 333 at-bats on the year. He's looking to finish the season on a high note.
Colorado Rockies shortstop Trevor Story went 1-for-5 with a three-run homer in a 6-0 win over the Washington Nationals on Saturday. Story swatted his 23rd home run of the season off Patrick Corbin in the fourth inning. It was a three-run shot and his only hit of the ball game. The 28-year-old shortstop is now slashing .247/.324/.479 with 23 home runs, 72 RBI, and 18 stolen bases over 482 at-bats on the year. Those are decent overall numbers but they're underwhelming considering where Story was selected in fantasy drafts.
Colorado Rockies starting pitcher Kyle Freeland earned the win on Saturday when he allowed seven hits with one walk and seven strikeouts across six scoreless innings in a 6-0 win over the Nationals. Freeland was locked in for Saturday's tilt against the Nats. He scattered seven hits and only really ran into trouble in his final inning but was able to wiggle out of the jam. The stellar outing gives the 28-year-old left-hander a 4.50 ERA, 1.41 WHIP, and 97:33 K/BB ratio over 108 innings (21 starts) on the season. He'll take on the Giants at home in his next turn, which should be a difficult start for fantasy purposes.
