|Juan Nicasio, Roy Oswalt among competitors for rotation in '14 |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(9/19/13) Rockies manager Walt Weiss said Thursday that pitchers Jorge De La Rosa, Jhoulys Chacin and Tyler Chatwood will make up the foundation of 2014's rotation, MLB.com reports. That leaves pitchers Juan Nicasio and Roy Oswalt, the latter of whom will likely be invited back to Colorado this offseason, to compete with others for spots.
"As I see it right now, those three guys have really solidified a spot," Weiss told MLB.com. "Juan's been good at times, but we need to see a little more consistency. But the other three guys, they're nice arms to have."
Pitchers Drew Pomeranz, Chad Bettis and Collin McHugh could also be in the mix to start, as could any potential trade or free-agent acquisitions.
|Roy Oswalt decided to call it a career in February after 13 seasons in the major leagues. Oswalt spent the 2013 season with the Rockies, but it wasn't one of his best campaigns. Oswalt didn't sign a minor-league deal until early May and didn't join the rotation until late June. Though, he certainly wasn't vintage Oswalt when he stepped onto the major-league hill. Oswalt went 0-4 with a 7.64 ERA in his first four starts before a hamstring injury sidelined him from early July through early September. When Oswalt returned, the results were still horrendous and he was eventually moved to the bullpen. Oswalt went 0-6 with an 8.63 ERA and 1.79 WHIP in nine appearances (six starts). Now that Oswalt has decided to hang up the cleats, you can leave him off all Fantasy rosters.
