8/28/2015 | Rolling with Pirates, Happ sizes up Rockies

8/28/2015 | Rockies call up Gurka, adding lefty to bullpen

Left-hander Jason Gurka, selected to the Majors by the Rockies on Friday, saw his career stagnate in the Orioles system -- a two-year stay at high Class A, the better part of three years at Double-A. But he never looked at it that way.

8/27/2015 | Rehabbing Lyles itching to return to normal routine

Jordan Lyles isn't shy about it. A season on the sidelines isn't a glamorous life. Lyles, though, has seen an upswing in positivity this week. He has accompanied the Rockies on their current road trip -- the first one he's made since he last appeared in Philadelphia -- and the right-hander will be cleared to start running once the team returns home.

8/27/2015 | Barnes burning: Outfielder heats up for Rox

Life has not been easy for Rockies outfielder Brandon Barnes during the season's second half. The 29-year-old, in his third full Major League season, came into Wednesday hitting .251, due to a .190 average since the break and .111 during August. He knew of only one way to turn things around -- grind.

8/25/2015 | Rockies notch two huge outs against Freeman

The Colorado Rockies got what they needed on Tuesday -- an end to their four-game losing streak -- beating both the Atlanta Braves and one of the game's most-feared hitters to do it. Rockies' right-hander Chad Bettis tossed five gutsy innings, and five relievers chipped in to help flummox the Braves. The 5-1 win hinged on two huge at-bats, both against Braves' slugger Freddie Freeman.

8/25/2015 | All-Star LeMahieu keeps on raking for Rox

If DJ LeMahieu has been one thing this season -- and for the Colorado Rockies, their All-Star second baseman has been just about everything they've asked and more -- he's been steady.

8/25/2015 | Scouting profile: Jon Gray

A good athlete, right-hander Jon Gray played baseball, basketball and football at Chandler (Oklahoma) High School. He then went on to pitch at Eastern Oklahoma State College and had an outstanding tenure at the University of Oklahoma, where he was a member of the All Big-12 Team.

8/25/2015 | Rox nearly turn gifts into game-changing rally

8/24/2015 | CarGo exits with sore knee, day to day

Rockies right fielder Carlos Gonzalez, the hottest home run hitter in the Majors since the All-Star break, left Monday night's game against the Braves in the fifth inning with soreness in his right knee. The team is listing him as day to day.

8/24/2015 | Hale sent to Triple-A, clearing spot for Bettis

The Rockies announced Monday that they optioned right-hander David Hale to Triple-A Albuquerque, one day after he uncorked a club-record four wild pitches in a 5-1 loss to the New York Mets in Denver.

8/23/2015 | Hale features strikeout stuff in historically wild start

A pinch of wildness, a dash of effectiveness and a helping of weirdness was the recipe for David Hale's start on Sunday afternoon. In Colorado's 5-1 loss to the Mets at Coors Field, Hale uncorked a Rockies single-game-high four wild pitches, tied a career high with nine strikeouts and retired the final 10 hitters he faced.

8/23/2015 | Mets sweep away Rox behind Verrett's gem

Subbing for Matt Harvey, Logan Verrett held the Rockies to one run and four hits in eight innings in his first Major League start, as the National League East-leading Mets won, 5-1, at Coors Field on Sunday.

8/23/2015 | Diaz, Castro promoted from Triple-A

With Colorado desperately needing relief for its often-used and ineffective bullpen, the Rockies called up two fresh faces on Sunday. Right-handers Simon Castro and Jairo Diaz were promoted from Triple-A Albuquerque before Colorado's series finale with the Mets. Veteran reliever Rafael Betancourt was designated for assignment and Justin Miller was optioned down to Albuquerque as the corresponding moves.

8/23/2015 | Veteran reliever Betancourt DFA'd by Rockies

Rafael Betancourt, one of the most accomplished relievers in Rockies history, saw his tenure and more than likely his 12-season Major League career end when the club designated him for assignment Sunday morning.

8/23/2015 | De La Rosa, Teheran set for opener

The Rockies will look to continue their success this season against Atlanta on Monday, when the two teams open up a three-game series at Turner Field. Colorado will send left-hander Jorge De La Rosa (7-5, 4.50 ERA) to the hill opposite the Braves' Julio Teheran (8-6, 4.32 ERA).

8/23/2015 | Parker rounding into form after 4-RBI game

Rockies rookie outfielder Kyle Parker vows not to be distracted by his volatile early-career batting average, which is displayed big as life on the scoreboard each at-bat. Parker ignored the .233 at the start of Saturday's game. After a big night -- a three-run triple and an RBI double in a 14-9 loss to the Mets at Coors -- he'll make himself do the same when the board flashes .250 next time he's batting.
