New Rockies bullpen coach feels he can help Rex Brothers


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2014) New Rockies bullpen coach Darren Holmes believes he will be able to help reliever Rex Brothers, who has been touted as the closer of the future, bounce back after a rough 2014 season, according to The Denver Post.

Holmes feels he will be able to rely on his experience pitching for Colorado (1993-1997) and impart his wisdom on the hard-throwing lefty.

"When I came to (Colorado), I put a lot of added pressure on myself," Holmes said. "I think that's probably what happened to Brothers. He's got great stuff. You don't (pitch) at Coors Field with a 1.74 (ERA) by mistake. That doesn't just happen. He's got great stuff.

"He's got a great makeup. Something went wrong, and it could be mechanical. It could be that something went wrong mechanically early and he couldn't pull out of it. Maybe it was mental. Maybe he got beat down early."


Who's next in line to close?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/8/2014) The funny thing about the closer role is that while innumerable relievers are capable of filling it, only 30 can at any one time, giving those 30 disproportionate value in Fantasy. And while in shallower leagues, 30 is more than enough to go around, in standard 12-team formats, it's a shortage. As a result, anticipating the next to enter the role is well worth your while.

Among all middle relievers, I believe Jake McGee, Jeurys Familia, Sergio Romo, Joaquin Benoit, Neil Ramirez, Brad Ziegler, Jason Grilli and Rex Brothers have the best chance of stepping into the closer role by the end of the month. To read up on them and their chances, check out my latest post to the Fantasy Baseball Today blog.


Rex Brothers tosses perfect inning in win Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/14/2014) Rockies pitcher Rex Brothers recorded three strikeouts in a scoreless eighth inning Saturday to earn a win in his team's 5-4 victory over the Giants.

Not only did Brothers (3-4) notch three strikeouts in the inning, he needed just three pitches for each of his strikeouts, finishing the perfect inning with just nine pitches to his credit. He owns a 4.85 ERA and 30:18 K:BB ratio in 29 2/3 innings.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/5/2014) Rockies pitcher Rex Brothers was blasted for five earned runs on four hits and one walk without recording an out Wednesday, taking the loss in his team's 16-8 defeat against the Rockies.

Brothers (2-4) had surrendered five earned runs in 4 2/3 innings over his previous five appearances, but Wednesday's meltdown took the cake, opening the eighth inning by putting the first five runners on as the Diamondbacks scored 11 runs in the final two innings of the blowout win. He owns a 5.47 ERA and 24:16 K:BB ratio in 26 1/3 innings.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Rex Brothers blows first save chance


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/1/2014) Rockies reliever Rex Brothers' struggles continued Wednesday, as he blew his first save opportunity of the season in a 5-4 loss to the Diamondbacks.

Brothers entered the game with a two-run lead and immediately ran into trouble. He allowed a leadoff single, though actually recorded the next two outs and appeared on his way out of the inning, before allowing two hits and a hit batter as the Diamondbacks tied the game 4-4.

Brothers now has a 4.26 ERA in 12 2/3 innings, with nine walks and 10 strikeouts. He only received the save chance Wednesday after LaTroy Hawkins pitched consecutive nights and was unavailable. 


Rex Brothers walks three in loss Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2014) Rockies pitcher Rex Brothers suffered the loss Monday as his team fell to the Padres, 5-4.

Brothers (1-2) didn't give up a hit in the loss, but he did walk three batters while giving up two runs (one earned) in one inning of action. The earned run came on a passed ball, while the unearned run was scored on the same play after catcher Wilin Rosario committed a throwing error. Brothers owns a 3.18 ERA and an ugly 3:7 K:BB ratio in 5 2/3 innings.


Rex Brothers secures win Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

LaTroy Hawkins: Closer job to eventually go to Rex Brothers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2014) Rockies 41-year-old reliever LaTroy Hawkins has developed a strong relationship with teammate Rex Brothers, with whom he is competing for the closer role. He doesn't sound like a guy who would mind losing that job, though it might be shared for now.

"I'm not a title guy - I don't care about a title," Hawkins told MLB.com. "When I pitched in the sixth inning, I was the closer for the sixth inning. When I pitched in the seventh inning, the eighth inning, I was the closer for that inning. All bullpen guys have to have that mentality. You're the closer when it's time for you to do your job. The only thing is the last guy doesn't get the pass the baton."

Hawkins added his belief that his friend would eventually get the chance to go solo as the closer. "I love him," Hawkins said. "He's got a great arm. I've been saying from Day 1, I'm just keeping that seat warm. ... When he's ready, I'll give it to him. That's Brothers' inning."

Brothers nailed down 19 of 21 save opportunities for Colorado in 2013.


LaTroy Hawkins, Rex Brothers could split closing duties


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/11/2014) Rockies pitcher LaTroy Hawkins is not necessarily the team's "everyday" closer, the Denver Post reports, adding that Rex Brothers could see some save chances against left-handers in the ninth inning.

The Rockies went searching for a closer this offseason and settled on Hawkins, despite Brothers performing well enough in the role when asked in 2013. Both could be headed for double-digit saves this season.

Rex Brothers has off night for second blown save


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2013) Rockies closer Rex Brothers had an unfortunate evening Friday in San Diego. He failed to protect a 3-2 lead in the ninth.

"You make bad pitches, you get beat in this league," Brothers said. "I don't know if I made a single (good) pitch."

Brothers gave up the game-tying home run in the ninth to Chase Headley and allowed Kyle Blanks to score the game-winner on a Juan Guzman single to left a few batters later.

Brothers allowed the two runs on three hits and two walks without a strikeout as he retired only one batter over 21 pitches for his second blown save. He's 2-1 on the year as he also took the loss.

The 25-year-old closer still has a solid 1.81 ERA and has looked good in the ninth-inning role for the most part for the Rockies.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
