Saturday Rockpile: Bottom of the rollercoaster ride, hopefully

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

In this up and down Rockies' season, the team returned home and remembered how to score but forgot how to pitch.  Now, as reported on purplerow, the team will is getting ready to use their 11th starter of the year.  On the bright side, at least the Rockies didn't make history in futility last night.  Here are today's articles that talk about these things:

Lineup rebounds, but Rox doomed by pitching woes - Thomas Harding

Recap from last night's slug fest from the Colorado perspective.

Christian Friedrich getting respite from rough year in triple-A - Irv Moss

Not sure if this is a ringing endorsement, but today's pitcher has not been having a great season for the Sky Sox.  Good luck in the majors Christian.

Trio of injured Rockies join forces to play catch - Thomas Harding

Players are getting healthier, but I couldn't help but shake my head that it took three Rockies plus a trainer to play a standard game of catch as they only had a total of five healthy hands.  This group of mini-articles gives injury updates on Nolan Arenado, Carlos Gonzalez, Jordan Lyles, Boone Logan, and Rafael Betancourt.

Nolan Arenado X-Ray shows he is nearly ready for Rockies rehab stint - Nick Groke

More information on Nolan Arenado and his impending return to competitive baseball.  It will still be a bit before he joins the major league team, but it will be good to start getting back the more than 1/3 of the lineup that is on the disabled list right now.

Don't forget, Colorado is hosting an early game both today and tomorrow so make sure to tune in for daytime baseball.  GO ROCKIES!
