Colorado Rockies Roster Report 2009-05-12

Colorado Rockies Roster Report 2009-05-12
--RHP Huston Street earned his fourth save and the 98th of his career Sunday. He has made seven consecutive scoreless appearances dating to April 26, a span of six innings in which Street has allowed three hits and one walk with six strikeouts.

--RHP Matt Daley, 26, an undrafted player out of Bucknell who made his major league debut April 25, has not been scored upon in six of his seven outings. He has allowed three hits and one run in seven innings overall for a 1.29 ERA, and no runs and one hit in four scoreless innings at Coors Field. Daley pitches from a crouch and steps toward third base, giving him something of a crossfire approach to right-handed batters.

"The one thing he's showed us is guts," manager Clint Hurdle said. "He's not short there. He throws strikes and pounds the zone. He's handled left-handers well (they're 1-for-12 and right-handed hitters are 1-for-10). He's become a piece out there late to put into a game when we have a lead."

--IF Ian Stewart is hitting .194 with four homers, 13 RBI and 22 strikeouts in 67 at-bats. Stewart took three called third strikes Saturday and then pinch hit Sunday and was called out on strikes. "It's been an ongoing conversation with Stew about swinging the bat and staying on the fastball," said manager Clint Hurdle, adding the topic was discussed last year and that he and hitting coach Don Baylor individually and jointly have discussed the matter with Stewart this season. "Strikeouts are part of the game. They're easier to live with when you're swinging; you're swinging at strikes and you're firing the barrel. The bat's in his hands."


INF Jeff Baker (sprained left wrist) went on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to April 27.

LHP Franklin Morales (strained left shoulder) went on the 15-day disabled list April 22. He threw a bullpen session May 9.

RHP Ryan Speier (strained left hamstring) went on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to April 19. He threw a bullpen session April 27.

RHP Taylor Buchholz (partial tear in right ulnar collateral ligament) went on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to March 27, and he was transferred to the 60-day DL on April 22. The Rockies are being very cautious with Buchholz, trying to make sure the partial tear doesn't become a full-blown one and require Tommy John surgery that would sideline Buchholz for about a year.

LHP Jeff Francis (left shoulder surgery in February 2009) went on the 60-day disabled list April 5. He likely will miss the entire season. Recovery time ranges from six to 12 months, meaning it's possible Francis could pitch in September but not very likely.
