The Dodgers swept the Rockies this weekend, winning three times in three games at Coors Field. Los Angeles is only a game back of Colorado, which began the series in first-place.
But Arizona has steadied the ship, finally, and has regained the top spot in the West. The Dodgers are still just tied with the Giants for third and the Padres are only a few games further back in last.
So everybody feels like they have a chance out West. The Rockies’ biggest problem has been their complete lack of production out of the corner outfield and some infield spots. They’ve got stars in Arenado and Blackmon and some complete black holes elsewhere that they didn’t expect before the season began.
Kyle Freeland has emerged as the most dependable of the young group of starting pitchers. He’s just 5–5 but we know win-loss record doesn’t mean much when it comes to a starting pitcher’s effectiveness. With a mid-3s ERA and a WHIP at 1.20, Freeland has the peripherals to suggest he’s a #2 starting pitcher.
The Reds haven’t had a whole lot to get excited about this season but Eugenio Suarez has been one of the few.
Suarez has slowly improved over the last few seasons and he’s absolutely crushing it this year. He’s arguably the best shortstop in baseball now, hitting .299 with an OPS+ of 158.
And Cincinnati showed great forsight to lock him up when they did last year. He’s signed through 2024 with a team option for 2025 at less than $10 million per year. He’s 26 years old now so that contract will carry him right through is prime.
So with one spot on the left side of the infield locked up for the foreseeable future, Cincinnati has to go out and develop some more help for Suarez.
