Sim Rockies offense starts to find itself, but it wasn’t enough in most cases

Sim Rockies news and statistics from April 20-May 3, 2020

The Sim Rockies’ had a bit of a rough week, only managing one win in five games. Over the last two weeks they have gone 4-7 and are now sitting at 15-17 on the sim season. This past weekend’s series was the first non-sweep experience for the Rockies — on either side of the score.

Beyond that, however, some notable things are happening. Notably, the offense is starting to find itself. Charlie Blackmon has added nearly 200 slugging points (five home runs, including a three-homer game on Friday night, probably helped there. Trevor Story is slowly starting to look more like himself — going 14-for-41 with two home runs, six RBI, and nine runs scored. Ryan McMahon now leads the team with 11 home runs. Things are looking up for this Rockies’ offense that got off to an abysmally slow start.

The downside, however, is that the Rockies have given up way more runs than they could produce. In these last 11 games, they have been outscored 62-50. Most of the games have been close — the only major outlier was the 11-1 loss to the White Sox on April 28. The closing role still has been a bit up for grabs, especially now that Scott Oberg is on the Injured List with a broken wrist. Wade Davis gave up one earned run in 5 13 innings. Tyler Kinley didn’t give up a run, but he’s starting to walk a few more batters. From a starting perspective, short starts by Germán Márquez and Antonio Senzatela against the White Sox put the Rockies in a tough spot. Kyle Freeland and Jon Gray are starting to look better, though, so hopefully the others can follow suit.
