Jon Gray worked seven innings of one-run ball Monday in the Rockies' 10-1 defeat of the Phillies.

It was a big bounceback outing for Gray, who got lit up for six runs over just two innings last week against the Dodgers. He scattered four hits and three walks while striking out seven Phillies hitters, moving to 12-8 on the year and lowering his ERA back below 5.00. Gray's final regular-season start will come this weekend at home against the Nationals.

Trevor Story doubled twice and scored a run in his return the Rockies' lineup Monday against the Phillies.

Story missed a week of action with a right elbow injury that was originally reported to be far more serious than it actually turned out to be. He showed no rust in his return, hitting his 41st double of the season in the bottom of the second inning and his 42nd double of the season in the bottom of the fourth as the Rockies went on to win 10-1. The star shortstop is slashing .289/.344/.552 in 150 games played for Colorado.

Chad Bettis is likely to start Tuesday for the Rockies against the Phillies.

The Rockies need a spot starter with Jon Gray having to move up a day to take Tyler Anderson's spot. Bettis hasn't started a game since mid-August and will be limited to 30-50 pitches Tuesday.

Trevor Story (elbow) is back in the Rockies' lineup Monday.

Story's right elbow still isn't 100 percent, but he said Monday that "we're full throttle now." He admitted that he might have to resort to bouncing throws from shortstop if regular overhand throws cause too much pain. Story missed the previous five games.

Rockies general manager Jeff Bridich said in an interview on MLB Network Radio on Monday that he hopes Tyler Anderson (shoulder) will be ready to make a start later this week.

Anderson had to be scratched from a scheduled outing Monday because of a sore left shoulder, but the injury "doesn’t seem to be too serious," according to Bridich. The left-hander had posted back-to-back quality starts.

Jon Gray will move up a day in the rotation to start Monday against the Phillies.

The Rockies made the change after Tyler Anderson came down with shoulder soreness. Tuesday's starter is now to be announced.
Sep 24 - 11:44 AM

Tyler Anderson has been scratched from Monday's scheduled start against the Phillies due to left shoulder soreness.

The severity of the issue is unclear. Jon Gray will move up in the rotation to make the start in his place.

Garrett Hampson went 2-for-4 with a double as the Rockies topped the Diamondbacks on Sunday afternoon in Arizona.

Hampson has done a nice job filling in for the injured Trevor Story and is now hitting .270/.400/.378 with three RBI and two stolen bases in his first 45 plate appearances.

Wade Davis slammed the door against the Diamondbacks in the ninth inning on Sunday, retiring all three hitters that he faced to preserve a two-run advantage and earn his

Davis needed 18 pitches to retire Jon Jay, Daniel Descalso and Chris Owings. He has now made good on a National League-leading 41 of his 47 save chances while posting a 4.26 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 74/26 K/BB ratio across his 63 1/3 innings.
Sep 23 - 8:00 PM

Kyle Freeland delivered another dominant performance in Sunday's victory over the Diamondbacks, striking out six over seven shutout innings.

Freeland scattered seven hits on the afternoon, all of them singles, while issuing only one free pass. It's getting completely over-shadowed by the tremendous pitching performances by the likes of Jacob deGrom, Max Scherzer and Aaron Nola in the National League, but the Rockies' 25-year-old southpaw has been unbelievable this season. He'll carry a 2.84 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 169/69 K/BB ratio into his regular season finale on Friday against the Nationals.
Sep 23 - 7:53 PM

Trevor Story (elbow) remained out of the Rockies' lineup Sunday.

Story went through a workout Sunday and reportedly looked good, but the Rockies decided to hold him out for a fifth straight game. He should have a good shot to be back in there Monday when the team returns home. Garrett Hampson is at shortstop Sunday.
Sep 23 - 3:24 PM

Antonio Senzatela limited the Diamondbacks to one run over seven innings Saturday in the Rockies' 5-1 victory.

A.J. Pollock's solo shot was the only damage. Senzatela has allowed exactly one run in five of his last nine starts, and he's 6-6 with a 4.52 ERA overall. He'll probably start against the Nationals next weekend.
Sep 22 - 11:52 PM

Chris Iannetta went 2-for4 with three RBI and a walk against the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

We'll never know if Iannetta's bat would have been a little better with more consistent playing time this year, but more was expected in his return to Colorado, especially after he was so productive in Arizona last year. As is, he's hitting .219 with 10 homers and 35 RBI in 283 at-bats.
Sep 22 - 11:47 PM

German Marquez held the Diamondbacks to two runs in seven innings and struck out 11 for a victory Friday.

Kyle Freeland has been the Rockies' ace this year, but we'd still take Marquez over him in a must-win game right now. Marquez has fanned at least 11 batters in four of his last five starts, and he's 8-2 with a 2.58 ERA in his last 15 outings. He's struck out 210 batters, and he should overtake Ubaldo Jimenez's Rockies record of 214 strikeouts in a season.
Sep 22 - 2:05 AM

Ian Desmond singled twice, walked and knocked in three runs Friday against the Diamondbacks.

Desmond's lack of offense is one of the Rockies' biggest problems, but with 20 homers, 20 steals and now 84 RBI, the veteran has been excellent for fantasy purposes. It just seemed like something better might be on the way when he finished June with 17 homers.
