2017 RECAP

Record: 87 - 75

Last Season’s Fantasy Highlights

Corey Dickerson and Charlie Blackmon took advantage of some early season opportunities and parlayed that into regular playing time. Buoyed by Coors Field, Justin Morneau had a solid bounce-back season. Though, to be fair, he was good on the road as well. Tyler Matzek closed the season strong, lengthening an improving rotation.

What Has Changed?

Michael Cuddyer and Josh Rutledge are the only significant departures with Nick Hundley being the sole free agent acquisition of note. Hundley’s presence puts Wilin Rosario’s role in flux. A trade is possible but short of that, Rosario should be Morneau’s platoon partner along with being a power bat off the bench.

What to Expect:

The surest thing when it comes to the Rockies is Carlos Gonzalez and Troy Tulowitzki will miss time due to injury. CarGo’s career-high for games played is 145 in 2010 while Tulo has topped 150 just twice, the last time in 2009. For those banking this is the year that reverses – good luck with that. Nolan Arenado has yet to play a full season yet but last season’s woes were more fluke than chronic so until proven otherwise, it’s safe to Expect 150 plus games and a possible break out. Don’t be shocked if the fountain of youth dries up and LaTroy Hawkins cedes the closing chores to Adam Ottavino.

This Year’s Surprise:

Many are looking at Nick Hundley for power from the catcher position but the Rockies’ receiver to roster is Mike McKenry. Neither backstop is blessed in the contact department but McKenry’s batted ball profile (more fly balls) is more conducive to home runs in the thin air than Hundley’s. McKenry is also improving as a defender and is at least as good as, if not superior to Hundley with the mitt.
