Rox Attempt to Bust Broom Tonight

The Rockies will attempt to prevent a sweep by the Arizona Dbacks tonight when Juan Nicasio (5-3, 4.06 ERA) takes on the wily veteran Bronson Arroyo (4-4, 4.39 ERA).  Jordan Lyles had been placed on the ever growing disabled list with a broken hand.  Chris Martin was recalled from Colorado Springs to take Lyles’ spot on the active 25-man roster.  That effectively makes it a nine-man bullpen tonight as shown on the lineup card below.

Starting at 5:00 pm MT the MLB draft will be televised, with the preview by MLBN at 4:00 pm MT.  The first pick by the Rockies will be in the eighth position.  It will be an interesting action in the first half of the first round.  Purple Row’s popular choice is Kyle Freeland, but other experts have been all over the place as to whom will fall to the Rockies and be taken by them.  We can enjoy the first one and a half  hour of the draft before switching to ROOT RM TV to watch the Rocky Horror Show.  One change from last night’s game – Drew Stubbs in CF.

The Martin BP move is short term me thinks. 3 days from now (what would have been Lyles next start) we’ll know the “real” move. One option is to not let Frankie pitch the next 3 days and move him back into that slot. But a better option is to DL Brothers, keep Martin up, keep Frankie in the Pen, and call up Matzak. We should all be watching how Matzak and Gray (and others) are scheduled and used the… Read more »
