The Rockies have a tricky little portion of their schedule coming up. They got Monday off before playing a two-game series in Houston; they don’t have any days off between the finale on Wednesday and this game, in San Diego, on Thursday.
Not only that, but Wednesday’s game in Houston isn’t going well. Colorado lost big on Tuesday and burned through four relief pitchers in the process. It’s given up 14 more runs this afternoon (Wednesday). The staff could be in rough shape for this four-game get-together.
But Jon Gray has been Colorado’s best starter this season. He’ll be up for arbitration this winter and he’s having the finest season of his career.
Coming into the season, his best ERA+ was 138 in 2017. That was, by far, his best season, by ERA. This year, it’s 133 but he’s already thrown 25 more innings this season than he threw in 2017. At this point, he’s pitching for the numbers and the dollar bills. He’d hate to do anything other than finish this season strong.
San Diego Padres
The Padres actually have a similar schedule to Colorado this week. They are in Seattle for a two-gamer after having Monday off and will return home for this series.
San Diego won the first game in Seattle and will begin Wednesday’s game shortly (3:40 pm in Seattle).
In just 77 games, Fernando Tatis Jr. leads the Padres with nearly 4.0 Wins Above Replacement. He’s hitting .322 and his batting average on balls in play is a ridiculous .419 when the league average is a shade under .300. Perhaps the rookie has enjoyed some beginner’s luck.
