Butler shows improvement in Rockies 6-3 loss to Padres

The Colorado Rockies got out to a 3-0 lead but couldn’t hold on late, losing to the Sand Diego Padres for 6-3 in disappointing fashion.

Jordan Patterson continues to dominate for the Albuquerque Isotopes

The Colorado Rockies' minor league affiliates went 1-2 on Monday. Monday was the fifth straight day the Colorado Rockies had one of their affiliates get a game rained out, so just three of their four full season clubs were in action yesterday.

Arenado hits 11th, Parra homers as Rockies sweep Arizona

PHOENIX (AP) Nolan Arenado has a power-hitting rookie for a teammate who has grabbed a lot of the headlines for the Colorado Rockies this season. Of course, Arenado's performance has been praise-worthy as well. The 2015 All-Star had two hits, including his major league-leading 11th home run, and three RBIs in Sunday's 6-3 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks. He is hitting .305 and...

They’ve Adjusted to Trevor Story

They say you can’t predict baseball, but that’s nonsense. You can’t predict all of baseball, but you can definitely predict some of baseball. One of those predictions that any one of us could’ve made: There was no way Trevor Story was going to keep that up. It was so obvious that even saying it would’ve been empty. Pointless. The prediction was essentially implied by the...

Nolan Arenado Looks Like He’s Up to Something

We’ve gotten to see many sides of Nolan Arenado over the past two years. The maker of ridiculous defensive plays. The hitter of a multitude of home runs. The effusive trotter of the base paths. With regard to his plate discipline, however, Arenado hasn’t changed much since he got to the majors. To call him a “free swinger” doesn’t really do him justice: between 2014 and...
