 Latest Colorado Rockies Player Notes:

Dec 29 2017 - Wade Davis
  RHP Wade Davis and the Colorado Rockies have agreed on a three-year, $52 million deal, according to multiple reports on Friday. The contract also contains a $15 million player option for 2021 with a $1 million buyout. Davis, 32, was 4-2 with 32 saves in 33 opportunities and a 2.30 ERA for the Chicago Cubs last season. He also had four postseason saves. Davis replaces former Kansas City Royals teammate Greg Holland as the Rockies' closer. Holland saved 41 games last season before declining a $15 million player option and becoming a free agent.

Dec 13 2017 - Bryan Shaw
  RHP Bryan Shaw agreed to a three-year deal with the Rockies on Tuedsay, according to multiple reports. The former Indians reliever will earn "somewhere in the range of $9 million" per year, tweeted ESPN's Buster Olney. Shaw, 30, made 79 appearances last season for Cleveland and compiled a 5-6 record with a 3.52 ERA and three saves. He is the only pitcher to make at least 70 appearances the past five seasons. During those five seasons, Shaw has appeared in 378 games and has a 3.11 ERA.

Dec 7 2017 - Tyler Chatwood
  RHP Tyler Chatwood agreed to a three-year, $38 million deal with the Chicago Cubs, the team announced Thursday. Chatwood posted an 8-15 mark and a 4.69 ERA in 33 appearances last season for the Colorado Rockies. His loss total last season tied for the most in the National League. Chatwood compiled a 40-46 record with two saves and a 4.31 ERA in six major league seasons with the Los Angeles Angels and Rockies.

Dec 1 2017 - Greg Holland
  RHP Greg Holland, formerly of the Rockies, has been named the National League Comeback Player of the Year. Holland, who missed the entire 2016 season recovering from Tommy John surgery, went 3-6 with a 3.61 ERA and 41 saves for the Rockies. His 41 saves were tied for second-most in the majors last season. Holland is now a free agent.

Oct 19 2017 - Wade Davis
  RHP Wade Davis set a career high with a 48-pitch save Wednesday night in Game 4 against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Davis gave up a home run and walked three batters, but he held on for the six-out save in a 3-2 win. Davis will not be available to pitch in Game 5 on Thursday night, manager Joe Maddon said.

Oct 12 2017 - Wade Davis
  RHP Wade Davis came on and got the last seven outs in the Game 5 win in Washington. That came a day after the closer gave up a grand slam to Michael A. Taylor. "I thought six not seven out of Wade, but like I said, what's the difference between six and seven," manager Joe Maddon said. Davis allowed one run in the eighth and escaped a two-on threat that inning when C Willson Contreras picked a runner off first base to end the inning.

Oct 5 2017 - Carlos Gonzalez
  RF Carlos Gonzalez was 2-for-5 with an RBI single in the ninth inning while hitting third in the lineup for the 24th time this season. He hit third 11 times in September after heating up, but before that had not hit third since April 16. "It's a function of Cargo swinging the bat," manager Bud Black said. "And I think that for me, it just looks right. That's how we envisioned it even way back when the season started." Gonzalez will be a free agent this winter, and his future in Colorado remains in doubt. The Rockies signed 1B/OF Ian Desmond to a five-year deal last winter, and he appears to be a possible outfield replacement. "The time and the place right now is focused on this game and winning this game," general manager Jeff Bridich said. "There is a time and a place for all the other business elements and outside the lines type of stuff that comes up in this industry." Gonzalez: "I don't really know what he future holds for me. I am really thankful for all the nine years I have been with this organization."

Oct 5 2017 - Jon Gray
  RHP Jon Gray gave up four runs and seven hits while getting only four outs, taking the loss. Gary had not given up as many as four runs in any of his previous 12 starts, dating to an 18-4 victory over San Diego on July 18 when he gave up four. "It was tough, tough emotionally," Gray said. "I really want to be good for the guys behind me. It is a really big situation, really a big game. It was costly. I know the environment is different but you can't change the way I pitch. I can't overthrow like that. I got to stay loose and execute pitches. I got off balance a little bit today. It sucks when it happens that fast. It was too late and there is nothing you can do about it." Gray was 2-1 against the Diamondbacks in the regular season, and his only two 10-strikeout games of the season were at Chase Field.

Oct 5 2017 - Nolan Arenado
  3B and MVP candidate Nolan Arenado's opposite-field homer in the eighth inning was his only hit in five at-bats as the Rockies lost in their first playoff game since 2009. "I am very proud of the way we battled but I think the Diamondbacks we just the better team today," said Arenado, who had 37 homers in the regular season. "The experience is good for us, and I think a lot of these young guys know how long a major league season is, how tough it is. I think it is only going to make us better. There's still room to grow. Today was a sign of that."

Oct 5 2017 - Trevor Story
  SS Trevor Story had two hits, including his 10th homer in two seasons against Arizona, his ninth at Chase Field. He also singled in the four-run fourth inning that drove Arizona RHP Zack Greinke out of the game. "You talk about how you score runs, you string hits together," manager Bud Black said. "Trev got a base hit sort of off the end of the bat. We just strung hits together. We tried to make him get the ball up in the zone."

Oct 1 2017 - Charlie Blackmon
  CF Charlie Blackmon went 2-for-3 and won the National League batting title with a .331 average. Nine Rockies players have won a total of 11 batting titles, including four in the past five years. Blackmon is the first player in history to lead the majors in hits (213), runs (137), triples (14) and total bases (388). Hall of Famer Stan Musial led the NL in those categories in 1948, and Snuffy Stirnweiss topped the American League in those categories in 1945. Blackmon's hits and runs scored were the fourth-most in franchise history. Blackmon's 69 multi-hit games this season are the most by an NL player since Juan Pierre had 70 such games in 2004.

Oct 1 2017 - Kyle Freeland
  LHP Kyle Freeland made his first start since Sept. 11 and took the loss while allowing five hits and two runs in three innings with one walk and no strikeouts. He finished 11-11 with a 4.10 ERA. His 11 wins tied teammate German Marquez for the most among major league rookies and are tied for the fourth most in franchise history by a rookie pitcher. Freeland's ERA is the second-lowest by a rookie in franchise history behind Armando Reynoso, who had a 4.00 ERA in 1993.

Oct 1 2017 - Jeff Hoffman
  RHP Jeff Hoffman allowed three hits, four walks and three runs in 1 2/3 innings. Hoffman finished his rookie season with a 5.89 ERA in 23 games, 16 starts, and in his final two relief appearances, he allowed seven hits, four walks and seven runs in 1 2/3 innings, raising his ERA from 5.34. In his 1 2/3-inning outing Sunday, Hoffman threw 53 pitches, 28 strikes.

Oct 1 2017 - Nolan Arenado
  3B Nolan Arenado went 0-for-1 with a walk before leaving the game in the fourth inning. After leading the majors in RBIs the past two seasons, Arenado finished with 130 RBIs, which was second to Miami's Giancarlo Stanton, who drove in 132 runs this season.

Oct 1 2017 - Gerardo Parra
  LF Gerardo Parra entered the game with one hit in his past 24 at-bats and made his first start since Monday. Parra went 0-for-3 and finished the season with a .309 average. Parra was hitting .348 on Aug. 27 but went 18-for-96 (.188) the balance of the season.

Sep 30 2017 - German Marquez
  RHP German Marquez recorded his 14th quality start, the most by a rookie in the majors this season, as he gave up six hits and three runs in six innings with one walk and two strikeouts. Gonzalez finished his first full season in the majors 11-7 with a 4.39 ERA in 29 starts. In 13 starts at Coors Field, he went 6-3 with a 4.59 ERA.

Sep 30 2017 - Carlos Gonzalez
  RF Carlos Gonzalez went 2-for-3 with one RBI and hit his 14th home run. He has had multiple hits in three of his past four games, a stretch in which Gonzalez is 9-for-15 (.600) with four doubles and one homer. In 24 games in September, Gonzalez hit .377 (29-for-77) with 12 doubles, six homers, 16 RBI and 22 runs scored and raised his average from .239 to a season-high .262.

Sep 30 2017 - Charlie Blackmon
  CF Charlie Blackmon went 2-for-3 before leaving the game in the sixth and has 212 hits. He passed Ellis Burks, who had 211 hits in 1996, for the fourth-most in a single season in franchise history. Todd Helton in 2000 and Matt Holliday in 2007 each had 216 hits. Dante Bichette set the franchise record with 219 hits in 1998. Blackmon's 68 multi-hit games are the most by a National League player since Mark Loretta had 68 and Juan Pierre had 70 in 2004.

Sep 30 2017 - Mark Reynolds
  1B Mark Reynolds hit his 30th home run, giving him four seasons with at least 30 homers and his first since 2011 with Baltimore. Reynolds ended a homerless drought of 44 at-bats since he last homered Sept. 10 and joined Nolan Arenado and Charlie Blackmon, each with 37 homers, as the third Rockies player with at least 30 homers. It's the sixth time in franchise history the Rockies have had three players hit 30 or more homers and first time since 2004 when Jeremy Burnitz, Todd Helton and Vinny Castilla did it.

Sep 30 2017 - Chad Bettis
  RHP Chad Bettis allowed four hits and one run in a season-high-tying seven innings with one walk and four strikeouts. It was the third time he pitched seven innings, something he did Aug. 14 and 19 in his first two starts for the Rockies after overcoming testicular cancer. Bettis is 2-4 with both wins coming against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Sep 30 2017 - Nolan Arenado
  3B Nolan Arenado went 3-for-5 and hit his 37th home run for his 130th RBI on Friday night. Arenado has a career-high 185 hits, surpassing his previous high of 182 set last year.

He trails Ellis Burks, who had 211 hits in 1996, Todd Helton (216 in 2000) and Matt Holliday (216 in 2007) and Dante Bichette (219 in 1998).
