The Colorado Rockies Need A Turnaround

 

This season started out well, then the injuries started piling up. Every position on the field has seen an injury that has cost them time including starting pitchers, relievers, infielders, catchers, out fielders. Those injuries include former All-Stars Carlos Gonzalez and Michael Cuddyer and would-be All-Star Nolan Arenado . It’s been difficult to watch the problems arise with a team that has the pieces.

 

When you get passed all of the games missed from injuries, there's still the problem of pitching. Pitching in Coors Field will never be a easy, but the Rockies staff is sporting a league-worst ERA is nothing but terrible.

 

The injuries have played a part here, too, but the guys still going need to step up their game or head back down to the minors. Jhoulys Chacin needs to step as the veteran pitcher but his struggles continue. Some have to wonder if an injury is involved with the drop in velocity.

 

There is still hope as the Rockies broke a losing streak with some good offense. Colorado scored three runs during a wild fifth-inning sequence and pounded starter Yovani Gallardo in Sunday’s 10-4 win.

 

A silver lining to the Rockies terrible June is that the return of Nolan Arendo is close. Arenado went on a rehab assignment Saturday where he went 2for 4 with a double. On Sunday he made some slick plays in his second rehab start. Arenado is expected to return on Thursday. Brent Anderson will pitch in Colorado Springs for his first rehab start.
