Going into Tuesday’s opener in Pittsburgh, the Rockies have lost their last four games by a combined five runs.
They’re back at the top of the rotation with German Marquez on Tuesday. Pittsburgh will counter with Chris Archer, who has struggled since a good first three starts. Archer will be making his second start since returning from injury.
Jon Gray, and not Marquez, is the Colorado starter currently striking out ten per nine. The walk number isn’t great but he’s managed the free passes all right. He’s giving up just less than a hit per inning, too. The WHIP and ERA say he’s slightly above average, so far.
Pittsburgh had a positive weekend in San Diego; after losing the first of four on Thursday, it won the final three against the Padres.
Josh Bell won the National League’s Player of the Week Award, alongside Vladimir Guerrero Jr. in the AL. Bell is slashing .333/.404/.697 and is setting himself up nicely for a little payday in his first arbitration year coming up this summer.
The Pirates have some nice players; Felipe Vazquez and Francisco Liriano have both racked up over a Win Above Replacement so far this season pitching out of the bullpen; Trevor Williams, Jameson Taillon, and Jordan Lyles look nice next to Archer in the rotation; and Bell has obviously been a force on offense.
They just can’t stay completely healthy, which is what a team with its payroll must do in order to remain competitive. The Pirates don’t have to worry about slipping to the bottom of the league but it looks like they will middle yet again.
