Ottavino seeking opinions; Axford, Betancourt could close for Rockies


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12:32 pm ET) Rockies closer Adam Ottavino, who could be facing Tommy John surgery, is expected to receive "another opinion or two" on his injured right elbow, manager Walt Weiss told MLB Network Radio on Wednesday.

"Tough news for us and tough news for Adam, we still are getting another opinion or two, but doesn't look great," Weiss said.

Ottavino was placed on the 15-day DL last week with a right triceps injury. Weiss indicated that John Axford and Rafael Betancourt are two options for the Rockies in the ninth inning in Ottavino's absence.

"We have Axford and he's closed a lot of games in this league," Weiss said. "We still have Betancourt as well"


Rockies closer Adam Ottavino facing Tommy John surgery


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/4/2015) Rockies closer Adam Ottavino is likely to need Tommy John surgery to repair his injured right elbow, Ottavino said to the Denver Post on Monday. A further evaluation with team doctors revealed a partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in his elbow.

"Baseball is my love. So I will do everything I can to come back," Ottavino said Monday. "I've accepted it. I'll take it head on."

Ottavino was placed on the 15-day DL last week with a right triceps injury. Ottavino posted a 1-0 record with three saves in 10 1/3 innings of work this season. John Axford will likely fill in as the closer.


Rockies to decide on Adam Ottavino's elbow on Monday


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/4/2015) Rockies closer Adam Ottavino will meet with the team's medical director on Monday, to learn the treatment plan for his triceps and elbow injury. 

Ottavino is on the 15-day disabled list with an inflamed tricepts tendon, but an MRI last week showed the inflammation continues into the elbow, raising the concern that Tommy John surgery may be required. 

"Nobody has said anything concretely about anything," Ottavino said, per MLB.com. "Until you are evaluated by a doctor … Those are the people who make those calls."

John Axford is filling in as closer. He has three saves and hasn't allowed a run, although with the Rockies in the midst of a five-game losing streak, he hasn't taken the mound since April 27.


Rockies pitcher Adam Ottavino worried about latest injury


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/29/2015) Rockies pitcher Adam Ottavino is getting concerned about his latest injury that landed him on the disabled list, according to the Denver Post.

Ottavino, who is currently on the 15-day DL with a triceps injury, is hoping to avoid Tommy John surgery.

"I'm definitely worried," Ottavino said Wednesday. "I haven't had any elbow or triceps issues my whole career."

Manager Walt Weiss plans to have Ottavino rest his arm and see how the tricep inflammation feels later on in the week.

"We feel like we have a pretty good handle on what the MRI showed, as far as the inflammation," Weiss said. "We don't feel like a few days will make any difference."

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

"It's more than I thought it would be," Ottavino said. "Now I'm just waiting to find out more."

Ottavino was placed on the DL on Monday with right triceps inflammation. The 29-year-old right-hander allowed only six base runners (three hits) and notched three saves over 10 1/3 innings of relief.

"I didn't feel good pitching the last couple of times out," Ottavino said. "But I thought I felt all right."


Rockies place Adam Ottavino on DL, activate David Hale


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/27/2015) The Rockies placed closer Adam Ottavino on the 15-day disabled list Monday due to right triceps inflammation, the team announced.

Ottavino has been brilliant over the first three weeks of the season, giving up just three hits and two walks in 10 scoreless innings while striking out 13 and recording three saves. Rockies reliever John Axford picked up a save Thursday and could be in line for more ninth-inning work in the wake of Ottavino's injury.

The team reinstated pitcher David Hale from the 15-day disabled list Monday and optioned him to Triple-A Albuquerque. He opened the season on the disabled list due to an oblique injury.

To take Ottavino's spot on the active roster, the team recalled pitcher Jorge Rondon from Albuquerque.


Rockies closer Adam Ottavino remains perfect Saturday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2015) Rockies closer Adam Ottavino did his job Saturday night. If his bat-wielding teammates had done the same, he might have earned a victory against San Francisco.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

He was subbing Thursday for closer Adam Ottavino, who has given up just one hit in 8 1/3 shutout innings this year, but was given the day off by Walt Weiss.

"I wanted to stay off Otto," Weiss told the Denver Post.

Adam Ottavino takes over as Rockies closer


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2015) Rockies reliever Adam Ottavino took the mound Tuesday against the Giants in the ninth inning to close out a 4-1 win for his first save this season and second career save.

Ottavino will get plenty more chances to add to his save total, as manager Walt Weiss as named him the team's new closer after removing LaTroy Hawkins from the role Monday.

"I'm not against closer by committee or anything, but I think Otto deserves a shot at closing games," Weiss said Tuesday, per MLB.com. "We've got some guys that can do it, but Otto will do well in that role."

Although this is Ottavino's first run as an MLB closer, he is ready for the pressure that comes with closing out games.

“Of course I feel ready,” Ottavino said, per The Denver Post. “Before last year, I hadn't really pitched that much with the game on the line, but I'm more used to it now. I also think I've made some adjustments vs. lefties, and I did pretty good against them in the spring. I feel more confident right now than I ever have on the mound.”


Rockies' Adam Ottavino strikes out side in ninth for first save


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/15/2015) Rockies reliever Adam Ottavino struck out the side in the ninth inning against the Giants on Tuesday to grab his first save of the season.

Rockies' LaTroy Hawkins removed from closer role


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/13/2015) Rockies manager Walt Weiss said Monday that pitcher LaTroy Hawkins will get "a break" from closing duties, the Denver Post reports.

"We have decided to give 'Hawk a break in that role," manager Walt Weiss said before Monday's game. "We're just trying to give him a little bit of a breather for the time being."

Rafael Betancourt will be in line to get a save opportunity Monday if needed, but the team could also use Adam Ottavino, John Axford or Boone Logan in the role. Ottavino, who the manager cited specifically as one player who would be used in the role, is likely unavailable Monday after pitching Saturday and Sunday but has racked up seven strikeouts in 4 1/3 scoreless innings while allowing just one hit and one walk.

Axford was signed this offseason as potential insurance in the ninth inning, but he's away from the team due to a family medical emergency. Logan has tossed three perfect innings in three appearaces.


Rockies pitcher Adam Ottavino wants to be more than a power arm


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2015) Rockies pitcher Adam Ottavino is known as the fireballer out of Colorado's bullpen. But the reliever wants to be more just just another flamethrower, reports MLB.com.

"That's my whole method of pitching, being tricky, mixing it up and improvising out there," Ottavino said. "That's fun for me. The game is that inner strategy, against the hitter, giving him what he doesn't want."

Manager Walt Weiss likes the versatility Ottavino gives him in matchups.

"He gives you an opportunity to match up; he's so deadly against right-handed hitters," Weiss said. "He's been better against lefties, too. He's made some adjustments. But the fact you can pick and choose whne you use him, it's a luxury."


Adam Ottavino could be backup closer option for Rockies


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/12/2015) Although Rockies reliever Adam Ottavino has just one career save in 181 relief appearances, manager Walt Weiss said the right-hander has the stuff to close games at the major-league level.

In fact, Weiss just might consider using Ottavino for a save situation if closer LaTroy Hawkins is unavailable this season.

"It's back-end-of-the-game stuff," Weiss said. "There's times where we've got to use a closer by committee and he would certainly be one of those options."


Rockies ready to rest LaTroy Hawkins when needed


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/24/2015) The Rockies will head into the 2015 season with LaTroy Hawkins as the team's primary closer, but manager Walt Weiss is ready to use other options in order not to overwork the veteran, MLB.com reports.

"Are we going to need other guys to finish games at times? Yes, we will," Weiss said Tuesday. "But he's the guy."

The Rockies have multiple pitchers with closing experience in camp in the form of lefty Rex Brothers and right-handed nonroster invitees John Axford and Rafael Betancourt. Righty Adam Ottavino is also an option for Weiss.

"It helps to have guys in the bullpen that have closed games before because there's a different mindset, but I feel like we have options and it doesn't have to be a veteran guy," Weiss said. "We have enough guys with stuff and presence."

Hawkins gave up no earned runs in eight innings last year while pitching on zero days of rest. He surrendered 12 earned runs in 13 1/3 innings while receiving just one day of rest. On multiple days of rest, Hawkins gave up eight earned runs in 33 innings of work.
