Hope for Colorado Rockies' Tyler Chatwood – The Denver Post

Tommy John surgery has been somewhat of an epidemic in MLB lately, and right-hander Tyler Chatwood is attempting his second comeback from the surgery. The Rockies faced reliever Daniel Hudson Friday night, who has had two Tommy John surgeries, and he still hits 97 mph on the radar gun. That gives Chatwood confidence that he can return and be effective. Chatwood has been throwing bullpen sessions, which consist of off-speed pitches and fastballs, totaling 45 pitches. Chatwood is planning on facing live hitters after the All-Star break.

I don't want to pinch-hit. I don't like to do those things."

David Hale and Kyle Kendrick, both sinkerball pitchers, haven't had much success in their first season with the Rockies.

Having the tendency to give up home runs and pitching in Colorado is not a good mix.

Trevor Story's next challenge is Triple-A – The Denver Post

You can relax, Troy Tulowitzki fans. Trevor Story's promotion to Triple-A had nothing to do with a possible Tulo trade, according to the Rockies' player of development Zach Wilson. The promotion was simply just the next step in Story's development. Story finished in Double-A hitting .281 with 20 doubles, 10 home runs, and 40 RBI's.
