Colorado Rockies reliever Scott Oberg has been placed on the 10-day IL with a blood clot in his pitching arm, likely ending his season. Oberg was recently promoted to ninth-inning duties for the club picking up five saves this season with a shiny 2.25 ERA and 58 strikeouts in 56.0 IP. It's unaware who will take over the closer's role with Wade Davis struggling this season, but he appears to be the leading candidate with a lack of options in the bullpen. Managers shouldn't rush to the waiver wire to add the veteran as he might become more of a headache than anything as a closer.
Colorado Rockies outfielder David Dahl is out of his walking boot and doing exercises as he recovers from a high-ankle sprain that has kept him sidelined since August 3. Manager Bud Black said he's "progressing" and "feeling much better.' The club will further assess a possible timeline for a return to the lineup early this week in their next series versus the Diamondbacks. Dahl was hitting a shiny .302 with 15 homers, 67 runs, and 61 RBI before going down and should return contributing sterling numbers when he returns to the lineup likely in early to mid-September.
Colorado Rockies outfielder Ian Desmond (rest) is out of the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Miami Marlins. Desmond will get a routine day off here to rest, so he should be back in the lineup on Saturday. Yonathan Daza will play center field and bat eighth versus righty Sandy Alcantara. Daza does not have enough value with the bat to warrant owning in DFS contests or fantasy leagues.
Colorado Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado cleaned up the mess on Wednesday by drilling a two-run walk-off homer into the seats in left in the bottom of the ninth. Arenado's blast was only his second base hit of the series against the Diamondbacks, but it was a no-doubter. Arenado now has 27 home runs and 90 RBI on the season, and he's lifted his batting average back up to .303. While he continues to play Gold Glove-caliber defense at third, Arenado has helped carry his team through the doldrums of one of the worst stretches in franchise history. Hopefully, he can get some pitching help so the team can get back on the right track.
Colorado Rockies closer Scott Oberg failed to keep his opponent scoreless in a second-straight non-save situation, but he got bailed out by Nolan Arenado this time. Following a debacle of an outing against the Padres where Oberg allowed four earned in just one inning of work, he allowed the Diamondbacks to score in a tie game in the top of the ninth on Wednesday. Fortunately, Arenado came through with a two-run walk-off blast to instead gift Oberg with the win. Since being named closer a few weeks ago, Oberg has only gotten one save, but that's due to how badly the team has been playing more than anything. Hopefully, this game will be the catalyst to right the ship and Oberg can nail down a few saves before the end of the year.
