Fantasy Impact: Quantrill struggled in 2023, posting a 4-7 record, 5.24 ERA, and a 1.46 WHIP in 99 2/3 innings pitched. The 28-year-old is now headed to the most hitter friendly park in the league and should likely be avoided by fantasy managers in 2024 drafts.

Fantasy Impact: The Rays have lost both Beeks and catcher Christian Bethancourt to waivers as the left-hander moves to the league's hitter-friendliest venue at Coors Field in Denver. The southpaw worked to a 5.95 ERA across eight starts and 22 relief outings for the Rays in 2023.

Elehuris Montero had a solid performance in Tuesday's game against the Dodgers, going 2-for-3 at the plate with a home run and one RBI.

Fantasy Impact: Despite his efforts, the Rockies fell to the Dodgers by a score of 11-2. Montero's season-long stats show a decent batting average of .243 with 35 RBI and eight home runs in 79 games played. While his strikeout rate remains high, Montero has shown some power potential and could be a valuable asset in deep fantasy leagues. However, his lack of stolen bases and low walk rate limit his overall fantasy value.

Ryan Feltner had a rough outing against the Dodgers on Tuesday, allowing five earned runs on six hits and one walk over just three innings pitched.

Fantasy Impact: With no strikeouts and a loss, Feltner's fantasy value takes a hit as his season stats now include a 5.82 ERA and a 1.68 WHIP. Although he has shown flashes of potential with a 7.9 K/9, his inconsistent performances make it difficult to trust him moving forward. Fantasy managers may want to consider benching Feltner until he can string together some more solid outings.

Noah Davis had another rough outing on Friday, allowing three earned runs over five innings pitched against the Cubs.

Fantasy Impact: With this performance, Davis now has a disappointing 8.77 ERA and a 1.91 WHIP for the season. Despite his 7.71 K/9, his 5.67 FIP and 1.69 strikeout-to-walk ratio indicate that his struggles may continue. Additionally, his .378 BABIP suggests that he has been unlucky, but his overall performance leaves much to be desired. Fantasy managers should be cautious about relying on Davis moving forward.

Kris Bryant is out of the lineup for the Colorado Rockies against the San Francisco Giants Sunday. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: Bryant will receive the afternoon off for regular rest, with Charlie Blackmon occupying the designated hitter spot and batting leadoff for manager Bud Black against the Giants Sunday.

In a stellar performance against the Giants, Chase Anderson showcased his potential as a fantasy asset, tossing 7 hitless innings while racking up 7 strikeouts.

Fantasy Impact: Despite issuing 5 walks, Anderson's ability to keep the Giants off the board and contribute to a 3-2 Rockies victory is a positive sign for his fantasy outlook. Prior to this game, Anderson had struggled with a 6.00 ERA and a 1.45 WHIP over 15 starts, but this outing could be a turning point for him going forward. With an improved strikeout rate of 6.8 K/9 and a 1.97 strikeout-to-walk ratio, Anderson has the potential to provide value in fantasy leagues if he can build on this impressive performance.

The Colorado Rockies have outrighted shortstop Cole Tucker to Triple-A Albuquerque. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: Tucker was recently designated for assignment but will remain in the Rockies organization at the Triple-A level. He has made just 10 trips to the plate with the Rockies this season, going 4-for-8 with a walk and a hit-by-pitch in that time.

Ryan McMahon went 3-for-4 with a home run in Wednesday's game.

Fantasy Impact: With 23 home runs on the year, McMahon has become a reliable power source for fantasy owners, and his ability to contribute in multiple categories makes him a valuable asset down the stretch. While his strikeout rate remains a concern, McMahon's consistent production makes him a solid option in fantasy lineups.

Justin Lawrence had a strong outing on Tuesday, earning a save in the Rockies' 6-4 victory over the Cubs.

Fantasy Impact: In his lone inning pitched, Lawrence allowed no hits and only one walk while striking out two batters. This performance adds to his already solid season stats, which include a 3.97 ERA, a 1.29 WHIP, and an impressive 9.0 K/9 rate. With 11 saves and six blown saves, Lawrence has been a reliable option out of the bullpen for fantasy managers this season.

Chris Flexen's struggles continued on Tuesday as he allowed nine hits and three earned runs over 5.1 innings pitched against the Rockies.

Fantasy Impact: With a 7.22 ERA and a 1.76 WHIP on the season, Flexen has been a major disappointment for fantasy owners, and this outing did little to inspire confidence in his ability to turn things around. With only one win in 13 starts and a lackluster 6.8 K/9, it's difficult to trust Flexen as a viable fantasy option moving forward.

With eight hits and two walks allowed in just five innings pitched, Lambert's fantasy value takes a hit as he continues to struggle with consistency and giving up runs.

Fantasy Impact: His 2 strikeouts and lack of saves, blown saves, and holds further dampen his fantasy outlook going forward.

German Marquez and the Rockies have agreed on a two-year, $20 million contract extension. (Source: Jeff Passan on X)

Fantasy Impact: Marquez underwent Tommy John surgery this year and will likely be out for most of the 2024 season, but the Rockies lock up the veteran starter regardless. He had a $16.5 million option for 2024, but will now make $10 million in each of the next two years with an additional $10 million in performance incentives.

Nolan Jones had a solid performance in Tuesday's game against the Diamondbacks, driving in a run and recording a double.

Fantasy Impact: Although he only had three at-bats, Jones made the most of his opportunities, contributing to the Rockies' 3-2 victory. This performance adds to his season-long stats, which include a .279 batting average, 44 RBI, and 18 doubles. Jones has shown the ability to produce offensively, and fantasy owners should continue to monitor his contributions moving forward.

Ezequiel Tovar had a solid performance in Tuesday's game against the Diamondbacks, scoring a run and stealing two bases.

Fantasy Impact: Although he didn't record any RBI or extra-base hits, Tovar's ability to contribute on the basepaths adds value to his fantasy outlook. With 10 stolen bases on the season, Tovar has shown his speed and could be a valuable asset in the stolen base category going forward. While his overall season stats are not overly impressive, Tovar's ability to contribute in multiple categories makes him a player to keep an eye on in deeper fantasy leagues.

Freeland delivered a quality start, going six innings while allowing just two earned runs on six hits and three walks.

Fantasy Impact: Although his season-long numbers have been underwhelming, this performance should provide some encouragement for fantasy managers. With a 5.09 ERA and a 1.47 WHIP on the season, Freeland will need to string together more outings like this to regain fantasy relevance. His low strikeout rate of 5.6 K/9 and a 2.22 strikeout-to-walk ratio highlight his limitations, but if he can continue to limit the damage, he could provide some value down the stretch.

Charlie Blackmon picked up three hits and drove in three runs on Saturday against the Blue Jays.

Fantasy Impact: Blackmon is hitting a strong .292 at the top of the Rockies lineup this season.

Fantasy Impact: The injury is not expected to land Gomber on the injured list. He should be ready to make his next start at some point next week for the Rockies.

Rockies infielder Brendan Rodgers has been scratched from Wednesday's starting lineup. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: The immediate reason for Rodgers' scratch is unclear but he has been dealing with an illness of late. It's been a tough start for Rodgers after a shoulder injury nearly cost him the entire season as he's hitting just .218 with zero homers, zero steals, and a .569 OPS across 84 trips to the plate.

By Brenton Kemp

Rockies infielder Alan Trejo is back in the starting lineup Wednesday versus the Braves. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: Trejo gets the nod at second base due to the late scratch of fellow second baseman Brendan Rodgers. It's been a very rough season at the plate for Trejo who is hitting .235 with two homers, four steals, and a .614 OPS across 184 trips to the plate.
