|Tyler Colvin plugging away at Triple-A|
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(5/5/13) Rockies outfielder Tyler Colvin hasn't let a demotion to the minors affect his ability to put the baseball in play at Triple-A Colorado Springs. Colvin is batting .297 with a .340 on-base percentage and .516 slugging percentage through 24 games.
Colvin also has two triples, four doubles, four home runs, 14 RBI and 14 runs. Colvin has spent the entire season in the minors following his demotion at the end of spring training.
|Is it worth holding on to Tyler Colvin?|
|by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(4/2/13) Recently-demoted Rockies first baseman Tyler Colvin, who has seen his ownership plummet, from 26 percent to 15 percent, is in the top five of this site's Most Dropped list. It makes sense -- Colvin struggled this spring and the Rockies seem committed to starting Todd Helton at first.
But does Colvin deserve the widespread dropping in Fantasy leagues? When Colvin was demoted, manager Walt Weiss said he just needed to iron things out with his swing. In the meantime, Michael Cuddyer can play some first base to spell Helton, with Eric Young playing the outfield. Colvin hit .290 last year, with 18 home runs and seven steals in 420 at-bats. If it's just a matter of getting some swings in, he could work things out and be back up in a couple of weeks. However, he may not have a role when he does, with Helton at first and the outfield full.
I'm holding Colvin in my deeper mixed leagues and NL-only formats, but if someone drops Drew Stubbs, for instance, Colvin's going to be my first cut. I was very high on Colvin early -- I still am -- but it's tough to see where he fits in. If he's traded, it's a different story entirely. But if Colvin is recalled and relegated to a bench role, he may not be worth the roster spot.

(3/29/13) The Rockies announced Friday they have optioned outfielder Tyler Colvin to Triple-A Colorado Springs. Colvin, who enjoyed a career year with the Rockies in 2012, batted just .167 in 48 spring at bats.
Colvin posted a .290/.327/.531 triple-slash line last season in his first in Colorado, but he was never able to get his swing right in Cactus League action. The team appears to be opening the season with four outfielders, but Colvin should be the first player called up if the team has a need at first base or in the outfield.
He his 18 home runs with 10 triples and 27 doubles in 420 at bats a year ago.

(3/26/13) Rockies first baseman/outfielder Tyler Colvin is batting .190 in 42 at-bats this spring with zero RBI and a .238 slugging percentage.
Coming off a career season, Colvin told MLB.com that he has been taking extra swings and played in a minor-league game Monday in order to be ready for the regular season.
"Usually, I've had 60 or 70 at-bats in spring training, but I haven't had as many [this year], so I have to try to get my timing down," Colvin said. "I want to see as many pitches as possible before the season starts."

|(2/15/13) Tyler Colvin enjoyed a career campaign in his first season with the Rockies and told MLB.com on Friday that now he has to show everyone that he can be consistent. Colvin batted .290 with 18 home runs and 72 RBI in 136 games a year ago. "Every year you have to prove yourself," he said. "Just to have that bounce-back year is good, just to know I can get back to where I should be, go back to the right approach and the right mindset at the plate. From there, it's just having good at-bats. It really worked out for me."

|Tyler Colvin surprised many Fantasy owners with his 20-homer rookie season in 2010, but just as quickly as he earned attention, he fell into obscurity just a year later. Coming back from a collapse lung, he hit just .150 in 2011, so expectations were low when Colvin came over to the Rockies last offseason. He took full advantage of Coors Field, hitting 11 of his 18 home runs there and batting .338 (as opposed to .244 on the road). Colvin logged 136 games, making at least 30 appearances at first base, center field and right field. He should get a healthy amount of playing time at those positions again in 2013, so even without an everyday job, Colvin should produce enough to be worth a pick in deeper mixed leagues.
