Player Notes

  • Productive in Game 2
    Diaz went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI in Game 2 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Mariners.

    Advice: Diaz delivered Colorado's only offense with a two-RBI double in the opening frame. That continued a hot start to the campaign, as he has at least one hit in 11 of his last 13 games while also racking up nine RBI and five runs scored in that span. Rotowire.com 41 minutes ago
  • Works clean ninth inning
    Mears allowed one hit while striking out one in a scoreless ninth inning in Sunday's win over Mariners.

    Advice: Mears entered in a scoreless game at home, traditional usage for a closer. He handled the high-leverage situation well, as he erased a one-out single by inducing a double play from the next batter he faced. Jake Bird still has the only save for the Rockies this season, but Mears appears to be in consideration for the closer role as well. Rotowire.com 46 minutes ago
  • Picks up win
    Lawrence (1-1) allowed one unearned run on one hit while striking out two to earn the win in Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Mariners.

    Advice: Lawrence entered in the 10th inning of a scoreless game. He allowed a single to the first batter he faced -- which plated a run -- but he went on to retire the next three batters he faced. The Rockies rallied in the bottom of the frame to give Lawrence his first win of the season, and he has not been charged with an earned run in six of his eight appearances.

  • Gets back on track
    Kopech threw a scoreless inning during which he didn't allow a baserunner and struck out two Sunday against the Phillies.

    Advice: Kopech made his first appearance since blowing a save chance Wednesday. While it wasn't in a save situation, Kopech was nevertheless impressive, retiring the side on 13 pitches while generating three swinging strikes. He's now turned in six scoreless performances in nine appearances this season, also maintaining a 17:6 K:BB across 11.1 innings. Rotowire.com Today, 9:42 pm
  • Tallies first homer
    Jimenez went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run Sunday against the Phillies.

    Advice: Jimenez tallied his first RBI of the season Saturday and then proceeded to smack his first home run of the campaign in the opening frame of Sunday's contest. He has been sidelined for much of the season by an adductor injury but is showing signs of getting on track at the plate for the first time. Rotowire.com Today, 9:33 pm
  • Swipes pair of bags
    Mead went 1-for-3 with an RBI and two stolen bases Sunday against the Yankees.

    Advice: Mead has been quiet since taking over the primary second base job with Brandon Lowe (oblique) sidelined, as he's gone just 8-for-40 with no extra-base hits. However, he enjoyed a productive Sunday, tallying an RBI single in the eighth inning while also recording the first stolen bases of his big-league career. Despite his struggles, Mead's playing time appears relatively safe, as he's started 11 of the last 13 games for the Rays. Rotowire.com Today, 9:21 pm
  • Handed first loss
    Miller (0-1) took the loss Sunday versus the Diamondbacks, allowing two runs (one earned) on two hits while striking out one and walking none over one inning.

    Advice: Miller's five-inning scoreless streak came to an end Sunday, though it wasn't all his fault. He struggled initially this season, but has since gotten back on track and earned two holds over his last three appearances. Miller has a 5.73 ERA, but his 0.91 WHIP and 15:5 K:BB over 11 innings suggest the southpaw's luck should even out over time as he gets more comfortable in the majors. Rotowire.com Today, 9:19 pm
  • Logs first steal
    Siani went 1-for-2 with a walk and a stolen base in Sunday's 2-0 loss to the Brewers.

    Advice: Siani is gaining playing time in center field, and that should continue with Victor Scott being reassigned to Triple-A Memphis on Sunday. Siani has three hits and two walks over his last two contests, but he hadn't shown much with the bat before that. The outfielder is batting .200 with a triple, no RBI, seven runs scored and a 3:6 BB:K over 27 plate appearances this season. Siani is likely a placeholder in center field until one of Dylan Carlson (shoulder) or Tommy Edman (wrist) is cleared to play. Rotowire.com Today, 9:16 pm
  • Struggles versus Mariners
    Lambert (2-1) was tagged with the loss after he pitched three innings, allowing six runs on six hits while striking out five batters in Sunday's 10-2 defeat to the Mariners in Game 2 of their doubleheader.

    Advice: Lambert was able to toss a clean first inning before things got away from him in the top of the second, surrendering six runs in the frame with J.P. Crawford most notably ripping a three-run triple. The right-hander was making his first start of the season and he was unable to continue the success that he had coming out of the bullpen, watching his ERA balloon from 2.31 to 5.52 on the year. Lambert is tentatively set to pitch again next Sunday at home versus the Astros. Rotowire.com Today, 9:13 pm
