The Colorado Rockies made a mini-overhaul of their bullpen today. Miguel Castro with a sore shoulder was placed on the 15-day DL, David Hale was DFA’ed, and Gonzalez Germen was purchased from Albuquerque. Carlos Estevez and Jason Gurka traded their apartments in ABQ and Denver. Hale never really helped the Rockies in a little over a year which is why he was DFA’ed. Walt Weiss explained that he had too many southpaws in the bullpen which is why Estevez is up and Gurka is down. As everyone knows, Jon Gray was activated from the DL to start tonight against the Dodgers. His stint on the DL may have done wonders for him; he says a minor correction to his mechanics has gotten his FB velocity back up to 98 while reducing the muscle strain on his chest.
Game time at 6:40 MDT; televised on Root_RM and 850AM radio.
Lineup: DJLM, Story, CarGo, NoDo, Reynolds, Parra, Raburn, Wolters, Gray
