Jim Tracy just announced that the Rockies will be going with a 4 man rotation, putting Guthrie in the bullpen. The starters will be held to 75 pitches per start. His logic behind the move?
We don’t know what’s going to come out of this. It’s not benefiting him or the club. We’re throwing too many bullpen innings. We had to do something that was unconventional. We have 2 rookies in rotation. You have to be very careful. You can’t just throw them loose on 3 days rest.
