Rockies' Weiss on Nick Hundley: 'He's been a tough out'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2015) Rockies manager Walt Weiss praised the offense of catcher Nick Hundley, who has hit .321/.345/.393 in 28 at-bats, MLB.com reports.

"He's done a nice job offensively," Weiss said. "We knew about the power he has in his bat. He's hit some long home runs against us when he was with San Diego. He's in a good place in the box. He's been a tough out."

Hundley, who had a .238 batting average coming into the season, has worked with hitting coach Blake Doyle on finding success more consistently.

"I was really impressed," Hundley said. "He called me after I had signed. He had some time to watch some video and break down what may swing was, is and where it needed to go, and I bought in. The ideas he had meshed with where I wanted to be, and he communicated well."

Hundley will look to keep rolling when the Padres kick off a series against the Dodgers Friday.

Rockies' Kendrick praises catcher Hundley for Opening Day win


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/7/2015) Kyle Kendrick had a spectacular Rockies debut Monday against the Brewers, tossing seven scoreless innings during a 10-0 rout. Kendrick allowed just seven singles and no walks, while striking out six.

The right-hander, who spent his previous eight seasons with the Phillies, gave a ton of credit to catcher Nick Hundley for his performance Monday.

"He takes a lot of pride in his game calling," Kendrick said Hundley, per The Denver Post. "He took over the meeting this morning, talking about their hitters and their lineup. I just sat back and listened. I've faced these guys quite a bit, but he was right on the number calling his pitches. His game plan was great."

Kendrick threw first-pitch fastballs to 19 of the 27 batters he faced. Also, four of his six strikeouts were looking.

"I threw a lot of changeups and sinkers, not many cutters today. It kept them off balance, moving the ball in and out," Kendrick said. "That was all Nick. I had never pitched in that much in my career against these guys. I learned something today."

Rockies manager Weiss: I won't carry three pure catchers on roster


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/26/2015) Rockies manager Walt Weiss made it clear that he won't carry three pure catchers on the 25-man active roster, and told reporters that Wilin Rosario is "serviceable" as a backup first baseman option, per the Denver Post.

"I don't think it can be strictly three catchers," Weiss said. "Somebody is going to have to be more versatile than just a catcher. I don't envision carrying three catchers only.

"Obviously, you are talking about Wilin at first base. I think he's going to be very serviceable over there and the more things he can do, the better it is for us."

With Nick Hundley likely slated to serve as the club's No. 2 catcher behind Rosario, Michael McKenry appears destined to start the year in the minors, barring a trade before opening day.


Report: Rockies C Nick Hundley projected to start


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/17/2015) Rockies catcher Nick Hundley is expected to serve as the team's starter behind the plate and is projected to bat eighth, according to MLB.com.

"Last year was a great move for my career, getting to Baltimore and having to learn people on the fly," Hundley said Tuesday morning after catching the bullpen sessions of several pitchers, per MLB.com. "It prepared me for this situation. At the same time, I've never been in action with these guys yet. Getting down here early, catching bullpens, talking is invaluable for us."

Hundley signed a two-year, $6.25-million contract with Colorado in January, and the addition is expected to push incumbent Wilin Rosario into a reserve role. Rosario has also been working out at first base and in the outfield and could be a regular option against left-handed pitching.

Hundley isn't looking to make waves by trying to make his new pitching staff adjust to him.

"It's my job to get acclimated to them, not their job to get acclimated to me," Hundley said. "These guys have had success at the big league level. It's not my job to be a pitching coach and change anybody. If I come in and start talking about mechanical adjustments after catching 10 pitches, you're going to lose credibility really quick. I'm here to catch these guys and get the most out of them, but it starts with being quiet and learning."

Hundley hit .243/.273/.358 with six home runs and 22 RBI in 218 at-bats with the Padres and Orioles in 2014. Rosario hit .267/.305/.435 with 13 home runs and 54 RBI in 382 at-bats with the Rockies last season.


Birdich: Rockies may carry three catchers if Rosario's not dealt


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/6/2015) Rockies general manager Jeff Bridich said Monday the team could carry three catchers in 2015, if they don't trade Wilin Rosario, per The Denver Post. The other two catchers on the roster would be Nick Hundley and Michael McKenry.

"This is not some harbinger for a Wilin Rosario trade," Bridich said Monday as the team announced a two-year deal for Hundley. "There has been interest in Wilin this offseason, but there has not been a situation that made sense for us -- certainly not at this point to take it seriously.

"We are talking about a young, power bat. A kid that hits home runs and has driven in runs in the past. He struggled at times last year, both at the plate and behind the plate, but that doesn't diminish the talent there."

Bridich added the Rockies are interested in using Rosario at first base on occasion and as a right-handed power bat off the bench.
