Meanwhile Reynolds has been relegated to a pinch-hitting role for the last week+. And I expect that not to change.

Murphy won the game last night with a single to left in the bottom of the tenth. He plated another run earlier with a seeing-eye grounder to right.

The Rockies swept the four-game series against the Diamondbacks, winning three of them by one run.

Exciting stuff.

There were 24 homers hit yesterday in the PCL (Patton & Co version). If your team hit two, you were treading water.

I was asking myself this question when Murphy pinch hit last night for Reynolds in the 8th.  A quick scan of the stats tells me that the reason Reynolds is getting more PT is that Murphy is a pretty awful hitter so far this year.  The Murphy slash line is .190/.257/.365.  Reynolds has a better, though surely not robust, line of .205/.320/.410.  The other big $$ option they could turn to is Ian Desmond, with an equally unattractive.219/.284/.430 line.  All this with half of their games in Coors. Yeesh.

A slew of bad options.  All things being equal it would be hard to decide who is most on the bubble.  But there are 24 million reasons to keep Murphy, and 40 million reasons to keep Desmond.  Meanwhile Reynolds signed a minor league deal...

Is he still hurting?  Rockies have started Reynolds over him time and again. Bought low the other day and not feeling real good about it now.

Thought I was higher on him than most.  At CBS, perhaps most, not all - balked at one-upping $24.

Given Murphy's hard hit ball rate (when healthy), and his contact rate, it's really easy to see him hitting close to .400 at home, and rebounding to a batting average in the .350 range.

If healthy.

Sounds like you got him last year, when he was injured at the start of the season, and playing 2B in Washington.  He finished the season strong, is now in Colorado, and playing 1B (and thus less likely to break down) while retaining 2B eligibility, so absent a ST injury I'd not hesitate to keep him at 16.

At $16 seems like a keeper, right?
