Fantasy Team Preview: Colorado Rockies

9

J.P. Breen

Coors Field can make a fantasy asset out of just about any major-league hitter.

The Colorado Rockies were a caricature of themselves in 2014, scoring the most runs in the National League while having the worst team ERA in Major League Baseball. Fantasy owners naturally gravitate toward Rockies hitters and run screaming from Rockies pitchers. You won’t find much on this list that disagrees with that assessment, though the organization clearly has some arms working their way toward the big leagues who could improve their fate.

My favorite thing to track from year to year: The Colorado Rockies’ offense posted a .902 OPS in home games and a .636 OPS in road games. That road OPS was second-worst in baseball. Keep that in mind. Guys like Tulo and CarGo should be in the lineup everyday, but the lesser guys are perhaps only “must starts” when playing at home.

"Coors made him much more of a power threat, and if he signs at a more pitcher-friendly ballpark his power could see a natural decline."

Moonshot: Troy Tulowitzki and the Brittle Bones Hypotheses

10

Robert Arthur

Are injury prone players actually prone to injuries?

In a twist of stunning unpredictability, Troy Tulowitzki is injured. Like the year before, and the year before that, Tulo is spending some time on the 15-day disabled list, after missing a handful of games for sprains and strains earlier in the season. Troy’s annual trip breaks up what was easily (on a rate basis) the best season of his career.

A glance at Tulowitzki’s injury history reveals a voluminous catalog of the many ways baseball players can be hurt. This year, Tulowitzki suffered a hip flexor strain. Last year, Tulowitzki had broken ribs. The year before, a torn muscle which necessitated surgery. Other injuries on his record include maladies in his foot, ankle, and hand.

Going Yard: Super Hits of the 70s

9

Ryan Parker

What makes Raimel Tapia's hit tool special, and what do we look for before we put a 7 on it?

Raimel Tapia has a 70 grade hit tool. There will be other scouts, evaluators, etc. who will debate that grade, but that’s not unusual. People discuss prospect grades all the time. The real discussion here is about the nature of a 70 hit tool; Tapia is just our muse.

The Call-Up: Eddie Butler

7

Craig Goldstein and Ron Shah

The Rockies demote Franklin Morales to their bullpen and bring up one of their top pitching prospects to fill his shoes.

The Situation: Franklin Morales continues to turn in uncompetitive outings, and the Rockies have now decided to pull the plug on the starter and move him into the team’s bullpen. Colorado will fill the rotation spot by tapping into their starting pitching depth at the minor-league level, specifically by summoning Eddie Butler—the no. 2-ranked prospect in the system entering 2014—to the big leagues from Double-A Tulsa.

Background: The Rockies took Butler with the second of their two first round choices in the 2012 amateur draft, popping the right-handed pitcher out of Radford University with the no. 46 overall selection. Given Colorado’s unique home field environment at Coors Field, the Rockies felt Butler’s groundball generating arsenal would not only play well at the major leagues, but at their home ballpark. Baseball Prospectus identified Butler as a prospect on the rise within the Rockies system entering 2013, and he responded with an ERA of 1.80 across three minor-league levels. Butler’s continued his dominance in 2014, posting a 2.49 ERA across 68 2/3 innings of work this season with Double-A Tulsa. While Butler’s strikeout rate in 2014 is significantly lower than it was in 2013, we can attribute that to player-specific developmental focuses that had Butler pocketing his best offerings in order to strengthen the weaker links.
