Rockies' Matzek not ready to return to game action at Triple-A
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(5/27/15) The Rockies don't have a timetable for starting pitcher Tyler Matzek to return to game action for Triple-A Albuquerque, per MLB.com. For now, he continues to work with the coaching staff on fundamentals.
"I'm not going to get into it too much, but a lot of it is getting Tyler back to the basics on all fronts, and once he's able to simplify things in those ways it'll get him back on a path for success," Rockies player development director Zach Wilson said. "Tyler has had success before. He's also had to fight through ups and downs.
"Any professional athlete is going to run into hurdles. But because of the nature of Tyler Matzek, he's going to be able to get through it. Nobody's worried about it. Certainly he's not."
Rockies pitcher Tyler Matzek getting skipped in Triple-A rotation
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/18/15) Rockies pitcher Tyler Matzek will not make his scheduled start on Monday for Triple-A Albuquerque, manager Walt Weiss said per the Denver Post.
"We're taking him out of competition for a bit. He needs to work on some things," Weiss said.
Matzek has been in free fall as of late. In his last start for Triple-A, Matzek lasted just one inning, allowing seven runs with seven walks and one hit batsman. Before being optioned, Matzek was 2-1 with a 4.09 ERA in 22 innings of work with the Rockies.
"This gives him a chance to focus on other things, outside of trying to win a baseball game, and sometimes there are situations where you have to take a break from that type of competitive environment," director of player development Zach Wilson said. "This is a minor thing for him. It's not a significant worry.

|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/8/15) The Rockies have optioned left-hander pitcher Tyler Matzek to Triple-A Albuquerque on Friday, the team announced. Matzek made five starts this season for Colorado, going 2-1 with a 4.09 ERA in 22 innings. His 15:19 K:BB ratio is rather alarming. He struggled in his most recent start on Wednesday. He gave up four earned runs while walking six with just two strikeouts in two innings against the Diamondbacks.
To fill his roster spot, the Rockies recalled catcher/first baseman Wilin Rosario from Triple-A. Rosario was hitting well this season before his surprising demotion, batting .357 (5 for 14) in his first 10 games. He's been raking in Albuquerque as well, sporting a .343/.361/.457 batting line in nine games.

|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/6/15) Rockies starting pitcher Tyler Matzek was roughed up and charged with his first loss of the season in Game 2 of a doubleheader against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.
"I was disappointed I let my team down," Matzek said, per MLB.com. "We had to go to the bullpen early, which is terrible on a day we've got a doubleheader.
Matzek gave up a run-scoring single to Ender Inciarte and a two-run home run to Mark Trumbo in the second inning. He was charged with four earned runs on three hits and six walks while striking out two over two innings of work. of his 58 pitches, 20 were strikes.
"I've gotten away with it a couple of times, just battling, kind of dealing with it," he said. "Eventually, they're going to come around and start hitting the ball. I just need to get the fastball command back to where it was. Once I do that, it's going to get a lot easier."
Matzek has coughed up eight earned runs over his last three starts (12 innings). He will look to turn things around Tuesday against the Angels in Anaheim.

2015 MLB Opening Day: Team-by-team previews and odds
Jon Heyman takes a team-by-team look around Major League Baseball ahead of the 2015 season and gives each team odds to win their division.
|2014 Summary: Former first-round pick Tyler Matzek made his major league debut in June, and initially, his numbers looked as unimpressive as his minor league stats had been. Matzek struggled with control and owned a 5.38 ERA and 1.52 WHIP through his first 14 appearances for the Rockies, but beginning with an Aug. 25 start at the Giants, he tried something different. The lefty started throwing his fastball less and his slider and changeup more. The result was vastly improved control and a higher ground ball rate, as he turned in a 4-2 record, 1.55 ERA and 1.16 WHIP over his final six starts.|
Playing time status: Matzek's strong finish should give him consideration for a rotation spot this spring. Between the majors and minors, he pitched 184 1/3 innings last season, so an innings cap seems unlikely.
2015 Outlook: It's risky to draft Matzek with the expectation that he can maintain close to what he did late last season for all of 2015. That upside, however, does make him worth a late-round flier in deeper mixed leagues.
