Wilin Rosario has not caught a game for the Rockies this year, but he still gets his work in behind the dish, staying sharp for whatever the Rockies may call on him to do. Rosario's right handed power is a hot commodity in baseball right now. He is perhaps best suited for a designated hitter role on an American League team, but with experience now as both a catcher and first baseman, he offers a bit of versatility in a trade. With the trade deadline approaching, that call may send him to a new city. Rosario has spent his entire career in the Rockies organization, signed as an amateur free agent out of the Dominican Republic in 2006. Thomas Harding of MLB.com provides quotes from the Bull, who remains much more interested in what he can do for the Rockies than preparing for a trade.

Dickerson getting back into the swing of things - Rockies.com
For much of the last three months, any time Corey Dickerson has to run, people hold their breath. The 27-year old left fielder was poised for what Colorado hoped would be an extension on the season he had a year ago, but plantar fasciitis has landed Dickerson on the DL twice already. Fresh off his latest stint, both Dickerson and Walt Weiss are pleased with how his first few games have gone. Dickerson has three singles, a walk and has reached on an error. He’s been tested a few times in the outfield, and so far things are looking good.
Colorado Rockies still rotating solutions to fix pitching - The Denver Post
Nolan Arenado, who has emerged this year as a leader on this Rockies team, has a few thoughts on what needs to happen with the starting rotation. Namely, the Rockies need to land a big name ace if they want to give themselves a shot at the postseason. Patrick Saunders heard from Weiss and a few starting pitchers who also offered their opinions. Included is a list of possibilities for next year’s rotation.
The Major League Baseball season is long and unforgiving. But it was unforgiving in the best way possible yesterday, as players showed up to find the outlined memorial of Eddie Butler’s only big league trip around the bases down the third base line. This is a hard game -- and it’s been a hard season for the Rockies -- but if you’re not having fun, you’re aren’t playing the game the right way.
With the Rockies currently operating a four-man starting rotation, it is still unclear as to who will be making a spot start on this upcoming road trip. Bobby DeMuro of RoxPile is pretty sure it should absolutely not be either Yohan Flande or Gonzalez Germen.
