Colorado Rockies

NL West

Fantasy Impact: Lambert lasted 1 1/3 innings, giving up two runs on four hits before departing. He will likely undergo further testing and we should get an update on his status within the next day or so.

Rockies manager Bud Black says he is "strongly considering" using David Dahl out of the leadoff spot to begin the year. (Source: Patrick Saunders on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Charlie Blackmon has hit first for the Rockies in recent years but would drop to third in this situation. Dahl could be followed by Trevor Story, Blackmon, and Nolan Arenado in a loaded Colorado offense.

German Marquez allowed two runs on three hits over three innings of work on Friday against the Diamondbacks.

Fantasy Impact: Marquez struck out three and allowed one walk in the outing. The 25-year-old has now given up two runs through six innings this spring. Marquez posted a 4.76 ERA last season and, like most Colorado hurlers, faired much better on the road than at home.

Sam Hilliard went 1-for-3 with a double and a run scored in the Rockies' 6-6 tie versus the Diamondbacks on Friday afternoon.

Fantasy Impact: Hilliard made his big league debut last season, posting an OPS over 1.000 in 27 games. The 26-year-old would be a very interesting late-round sleeper if he was given everyday at bats. However, it remains very up in the air how Colorado will distribute playing time at several positions right now.

Ian Desmond went hitless in three at bats as the Rockies tied the D'Backs 6-6 on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Desmond is hitting just .118 so far this spring. The Rockies certainly have better options for their lineup but the veteran is making so much money that Colorado continues to play him more than they should.

Garrett Hampson went 3-for-3 with a double, a run scored, and a stolen base on Friday against Arizona.

Fantasy Impact: There is once again sleeper appeal for Hampson, who finished the 2019 season on an absolute tear. The 25-year-old possesses 40-steal upside this year but it remains unclear if he will be given everyday at bats. This is a situation to monitor for fantasy purposes.

Ryan McMahon went 2-for-4 with two homers and four RBI in the Rockies' 6-6 tie against the Diamondbacks on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: The infielder now has three homers this spring. He is eligible at first, second, and third base on some fantasy sites and figures to once again bounce around the diamond this year. The 25-year-old popped 24 homers last season and would be an interesting fantasy option if given everyday at bats.

Daniel Murphy went 2-for-4 with two runs scored on Friday versus the Diamondbacks.

Fantasy Impact: Murphy is hitting a strong .368 to begin the spring. The 34-year-old was a disappointment in his first season with the Rockies, hitting .279 with just 13 homers in 132 games. However, his ADP has fallen so drastically that he could wind up as an interesting bounce-back candidate in 2020.

Category: Game Recaps

Trevor Story went 0-for-3 with a strikeout as the Rockies tied the Diamondbacks 6-6 on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Story is hitting .263 with a .739 OPS thus far this spring. The 27-year-old was a fantasy monster last season, batting .294 with 35 homers and 23 stolen bases. That type of power-speed combo has entrenched as a first-round fantasy pick this year.

Nolan Arenado hit his second homer of the spring on Tuesday against the Cubs.

Fantasy Impact: Arenado is set up for another monster fantasy season playing half his games in Coors Field. The all-world third baseman was once again fantastic in 2019, batting .315 with 41 homers, 118 RBI, and 102 runs scored.

Kyle Freeland allowed one hit (a home run to Chad Pinder) in two innings of work Thursday. He came out for the third inning but left the game with back spasms.

Fantasy Impact: After a very productive 2018 campaign that saw Freeland go 17-7 with a 2.85 ERA, the wheels completely came off in 2019. Last season, he went 3-11 with a 6.73 ERA and saw a dramatic increase in his HR/FB rate (8.5% in 2018 to 21.7% in 2019). There's certainly hope for a positive regression here, but expectations should be tempered with Freeland's home games being at one of the least pitcher-friendly parks in the league.

Rockies manager Bud Black says Brendan Rodgers (shoulder) is progressing faster than expected. (Source: Thomas Harding on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Rodgers underwent right labrum surgery last year and the plan was for him to only serve as a DH in Cactus League games. However, it now appears that he could see some action in the infield before all is said and done. The 23-year-old could wind up taking the Rockies' second base job later this summer. We certainly expect him to start the year in the minors, however.

Rockies manager Bud Black says Scott Oberg will open the 2020 season as a setup man. (Source: Nick Groke on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Wade Davis, despite posting an 8.65 ERA last year, will open as the team's closer. Oberg was great in 2019, delivering a 2.25 ERA in 49 appearances. He was signed to a three-year extension over the off-season and will see save chances if Davis struggles early on.

Rockies manager Bud Black announced Tuesday that Wade Davis would open the season as the team's ninth-inning man. (Source: Nick Groke on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Scott Oberg, who pitched far better in 2019, will work in a set up role. Davis struggled mightily last year, posting a horrid 8.65 ERA spanning 50 appearances. Still, he's the more experienced reliever so will be given the job to start out.

Chi Chi Gonzalez received a no-decision on Saturday versus Milwaukee, tossing six innings while allowing just one run on three hits.

Fantasy Impact: Gonzalez struck out six and walked two in what was one of his best starts of the season. The 27-year-old finished the season strong, allowing a combined seven runs over his last five starts.

Antonio Senzatela earned the win on Friday against the Brewers, allowing two runs on seven hits over six innings pitched.

Fantasy Impact: Senzatela struck out six and walked two as the Rockies spoiled the Brewers’ chances to tie up the NL Central race. Senzatela finishes the season with an 11-11 record and a 6.71 ERA. He won’t be a usable fantasy option entering 2020.

Charlie Blackmon hit his 31st homer of the year in the Rockies' 16-inning victory over the Giants on Tuesday night.

Fantasy Impact: Blackmon's homer was the go-ahead, three-run shot in the top of the 16th that ultimately gave Colorado the win. He finished the game 1-for-5 with the homer, two walks, three RBI, and two runs scored. It has been another tremendous season for the veteran outfielder.

Category: Game Recaps

Tim Melville fell to 2-3 on Tuesday versus the Mets, giving up four runs on six hits over 5 2/3 innings.

Fantasy Impact: Melville now has a 5.40 ERA through six starts this season and won't be an exciting fantasy option for his next start against the Giants.

Category: Game Recaps

Jeff Hoffman earned the win on Friday versus San Diego, allowing four runs on four hits over 5 1/3 innings.

Fantasy Impact: Hoffman issued six walks and also struck out four. He now owns a 7.03 ERA on the season and isn't a recommended fantasy option.

Category: Game Recaps

Jairo Diaz earned yet another save on Friday against the Padres, tossing a scoreless ninth to pick up his fourth of the season.

Fantasy Impact: Diaz now has three saves over the last four days and looks like Colorado's locked-in closer the rest of the way. Pick him up if you need saves.
