Rookie cather Wilin Rosario, however, continued his strong offensive season, hitting his 11th double and 15th homer. He even impressed defensively, throwing out Chase Utley and Juan Pierre in their steal attempts.
Rosario has 73 strikeouts in 75 career games and his average is at just .253 this season but his power (14 doubles, 1 triple and 18 homers in those 75 games) is playing because he is making sufficient contact and much more than I anticipated and forecast.
Lefthander Edwar Cabrera (Triple-A) gave up 6 runs, 3 earned, in only 3 innings, as his ERA jumped to 4.91. Cabrera now has three starts for Colorado Springs and two have been poor, resulting in 7 runs and 6 walks in 8 total innings.
Outfielder David Dahl keeps hitting at rookie-level Grand Junction, doubling and homering Saturday. The Rockies' no. 1 pick in 2012 now has a .326 average.
Peter Tago gave up 5 runs in 5 innings Saturday at short-season Tri-City. One has to wonder what happened to Tago's game.
The 47th overall pick in 2010 has one acceptable start in six outings this season and his ERA sits at 7.23.
In 24 starts in the organization, his ERA?
