Colorado Rockies

NL West


Ezequiel Tovar went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 6-1 loss to the Dodgers.

Fantasy Impact: Tovar's first long ball of his big-league career was the only offense for Colorado on Wednesday to wrap up their season. The top prospect has struggled a bit since being called up on Sept. 23, going 7-for-33 (.212) with an OPS of just .590. The 21-year-old being called up in September of a season that was not going to end in a postseason run may mean that he will be a part of the 2023 Opening Day Roster for the Rockies.

Austin Gomber did not factor into the decision after allowing one run on three hits and one walk while striking out four in three innings of Wednesday's 6-1 loss to the Dodgers.

Fantasy Impact: Gomber was taken out after three solid innings on Wednesday, as this game had zero meaning for either team other than to cap off the regular season. The 28-year-old will now end 2022 with a 5.56 ERA and a WHIP of 1.37 to go along with a 5-7 record to show for it. The lefthander will take this performance into free agency this winter.

Brendan Rodgers went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a single in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Dodgers.

Fantasy Impact: Rodgers once again was the catalyst for both offenses on Tuesday, hitting his second first-inning homer in the last three games. The infielder is wrapping up his season nicely, going 9-for-23 (.391) in his last seven games played. On the year, the 26-year-old has played in 136 games and boasts a batting average of .267 to go with 13 long balls and 63 RBIs.

Randal Grichuk went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Dodgers.

Fantasy Impact: Although it wasn't the difference in the game, Grichuk's 19th long ball of the season came in the seventh inning to put the Rockies ahead for good on Tuesday. Although the outfielder has largely struggled at the plate during the second half, his season-long numbers have been solid. As 2022 wraps up, the 31-year-old is hitting .259 with 19 homers and 73 RBIs to go with his OPS of .726.

Daniel Bard picked up the save after tossing a perfect ninth inning in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Dodgers.

Fantasy Impact: Bard needed just six pitches to roll through the Dodgers in the ninth, recording his 34th save, good for third in the National League. The 37-year-old has had a true career-revitalizing year in 2022. Unless he pitches again on Wednesday, the righthander will end the season with a stellar 1.79 ERA and a WHIP of 0.99 to go along with 69 strikeouts in 60 1/3 innings pitched.

Ryan Feltner recorded the win after allowing two runs on four hits and two walks while striking out four in six innings of Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Dodgers.

Fantasy Impact: Feltner wrapped up his year nicely with a solid performance against baseball's best offense in the regular season. However, the 26-year-old really struggled in his first full season in the big leagues. In 20 appearances, the righthander ends the year with an ERA of 5.83 and a 1.41 WHIP to go along with his 4-9 record and 97 1/3 innings pitched.

Sean Bouchard went 3-for-4 with two doubles, a single and a run scored in Monday's 2-1 win over the Dodgers.

Fantasy Impact: Bouchard has been Colorado's most consistent hitter over the final stretch of the season, and he continued that success on Monday. Since being called back up to the big-league squad on Sept. 1, he is 19-for-53 (.358) with 10 RBIs and seven runs scored. The 26-year-old's recent run should be earning him some consideration for the 2023 roster.

Jose Urena did not factor into the decision after allowing one run on five hits while striking out four in six innings of Monday's 2-1 win over the Rockies.

Fantasy Impact: Urena capped off his season nicely on Monday with an impressive outing against the best offense in baseball. The 31-year-old has trended upwards as his season has come to a close, boasting a 3.52 ERA in his final seven outings of the year. This solid stretch has brought his season-long numbers to an ERA of 5.01 and a WHIP of 1.57, good for a record of 3-8.

German Marquez picked up the win after allowing one run on one hit and three walks while striking out eight in six innings of Sunday's 4-1 win over the Dodgers.

Fantasy Impact: Marquez capped off his season on a high note, holding baseball's best offense to just one hit through his six innings of work. The righthander's season has been an inconsistent one, as he will finish with a 5.00 ERA and a 1.37 WHIP to go along with 150 strikeouts in 181 2/3 innings pitched and a record of 9-13.

Ryan McMahon went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a single in Saturday's 6-4 loss to the Dodgers.

Fantasy Impact: With his homer on Saturday, McMahon clinched back-to-back 20-homer seasons, and he now has three in his career. The infielder is wrapping up his age-27 season with a .245 batting average and an OPS of .741 in 149 games played. He will look to finish his season strong with Colorado out of postseason contention.

Kyle Freeland did not factor into the decision after allowing one run on seven hits and three walks while striking out eight in 5 2/3 innings of Saturday's 6-4 loss to the Dodgers.

Fantasy Impact: Freeland did enough to get the win on Saturday, but the Colorado bullpen blew the lead and the game as a whole later in the night. The 29-year-old wraps up the season with a 9-11 record to go with his 4.53 ERA and WHIP of 1.41. It was a disappointing season as a whole for the lefthander, who will now look ahead to the 2023 season with the Rockies.

Chad Kuhl was hit with the loss after allowing six runs on eight hits and three walks while striking out two in 3 1/3 innings of Friday's 10-1 loss to the Dodgers.

Fantasy Impact: Kuhl has struggled as the season has winded down, holding a 7.76 ERA in his six starts in September. That number has raised his season-long mark to 5.72 to go along with his 1.55 WHIP. The 30-year-old will, unfortunately, be given the tough task of facing the Dodgers once again in the final game of the season on Wednesday.

Yonathan Daza went 2-for-4 with a two-RBI triple and a single in Friday's 4-3 win over the Padres.

Fantasy Impact: Daza's two-run triple in the fourth inning proved to be important, as it accounted for half of the team's runs in the extra-inning victory. The 28-year-old has been one of Colorado's best hitters in September, boasting a slash line of .357/.410/.536 in 56 at-bats. He could return value as a DFS play who should get plenty of playing time in the final weeks of the season.
