  • Rockies' Dinelson Lamet: Takes third loss

    Lamet (1-3) allowed three runs on six hits and two walks with four strikeouts over three innings, taking the loss versus the Giants on Tuesday.

    Lamet again failed to pitch very deep into the game, and it was a laborious effort that saw him throw just 46 of 83 pitches for strikes. He's lost both of his starts this season, allowing eight runs over six innings, but the Rockies are lacking for better options in the rotation at this time. Over 14 appearances this season, he's logged an awful 12.42 ERA with a 2.46 WHIP and 21:14 K:BB through 16.2 innings. If Lamet gets another start, it would likely be over the weekend at home versus his former team, the Padres.

  • Rockies' Dinelson Lamet: Gets another start

    Lamet is scheduled to start Tuesday's game against the Giants at Coors Field.

    In his return from the 15-day injured list last Wednesday for his first MLB start since 2021, Lamet lasted just three innings in a loss to Arizona, surrendering five earned runs on seven hits. On a positive note, Lamet carried over the improved control he showcased during his three-start rehab assignment at Triple-A Albuquerque, issuing no walks while striking out four. The Rockies saw enough positives from Lamet in the outing and have few attractive alternatives available for the rotation, so the right-hander will get another opportunity to try and deliver better results Tuesday.

  • Rockies' Dinelson Lamet: Ugly outing in short start

    Lamet (1-2) took the loss Wednesday against the Diamondbacks, allowing five runs on seven hits without walking a batter over just three innings. He struck out four.

    Lamet was activated off the IL to make his first start since 2021 and did not fare well. The 30-year-old gave up three runs on four hits in the opening frame and then surrendered another two runs in the second before tossing a scoreless third. He was pulled after three at 71 pitches after reaching 63 pitches during the final start of his rehab assignment. Assuming manager Bud Black keeps him in the rotation, Lamet will line up to take the mound next week in a home matchup against the Giants.

  • Rockies' Dinelson Lamet: Comes off IL to start Wednesday

    Colorado reinstated Lamet (back) off the 15-day injured list to start against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

    Lamet ended up missing close to a month after being placed on the 15-day injured list May 4 with stiffness in his lower back. The right-hander was operating out of the bullpen at the time, but he was stretched out during his minor-league rehab assignment and will now get a chance to give the Rockies' rotation an added boost. Lamet showed flashes of brilliance as a starter when he was a member of the Padres, but he's struggled to be able to stick on the mound with a litany of injuries from 2017 through 2021. He's an intriguing speculative add, and one that makes more sense to have in a fantasy lineup when he's not pitching in the unfriendly confines of Coors Field. One of those opportunities for Lamet comes Wednesday in his outing against Arizona.

  • Rockies' Dinelson Lamet: Likely to return, start Wednesday

    The Rockies are expected to reinstate Lamet (back) from the 15-day injured list Wednesday and have him start that night in Arizona, Thomas Harding of reports.

    After making the third start of his rehab assignment with Triple-A Albuquerque on Friday, Lamet returned to Colorado on Sunday and was spotted throwing on the field. The right-hander stretched out to 63 pitches in his final start with Albuquerque and looks poised to provide aid to a Colorado rotation that has been plagued by injury and poor performance throughout the season. Though Lamet has largely operated as a reliever in the majors for the past two and a half seasons, he delivered a 3.78 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 21.4 K-BB% across 56 starts with San Diego from 2017 through 2021. The 30-year-old right-hander could make for an interesting speculative pickup in deeper leagues, especially after he dazzled over his three-start rehab assignment (0.84 ERA, 0.66 WHIP and 11:1 K:BB in 10.2 innings).

  • Rockies' Dinelson Lamet: Looking sharp on rehab assignment

    Lamet (back) struck out six over 4.2 scoreless innings in his rehab start with Triple-A Albuquerque on Friday. He gave up just two hits and one walk.

    Making the third start of his rehab assignment with Albuquerque, Lamet delivered an impressive follow-up effort after he tossed four perfect innings his last time out May 20. Just as he did in his prior two starts, Lamet did well to pound the zone, permitting just one free pass on the night while spotting 42 of his 63 pitches for strikes. The Rockies haven't decided whether Lamet will need one more rehab start to build his pitch count or if he'll be ready to return from the 15-day injured list for his next outing, but the right-hander at least looks like he'll get an extended trial in the big-league rotation. Since the second half of the 2021 season, Lamet has worked exclusively as a reliever in the big leagues, but he turned in a 3.78 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 21.4 K-BB% across 56 starts with San Diego from 2017 through 2021.

  • Rockies' Dinelson Lamet: Another rehab start Friday

    Manager Bud Black said Thursday that Lamet (back) will make another rehab start Friday with Triple-A Albuquerque, Patrick Lyons of reports.

    Lamet is being stretched out for a possible rotation role with the Rockies as he nears the end of his recovery from a back injury. He's looked sharp in his two rehab starts so far with Albuquerque, tallying five strikeouts with no walks over six innings of one-run ball.

  • Rockies' Dinelson Lamet: Being considered for rotation

    Lamet (back) could be used as a starter when he returns from the injured list, Thomas Harding of reports.

    Lamet hasn't started a major-league game since 2021 and hasn't been a full-time starter since 2020. He seems ill-suited for the role at this point, but the Rockies' rotation has been hit hard by injuries so it appears they might be willing to give it a shot. Lamet has made two rehab starts with Triple-A Albuquerque but figures to require multiple more to get stretched out if Colorado does indeed bring him back as a starter.

  • Rockies' Dinelson Lamet: Starting rehab assignment Tuesday

    Lamet (back) will report to Triple-A Albuquerque to begin an injury rehab assignment Tuesday, Thomas Harding of reports.

    Lamet was able to participate in a live bullpen session Saturday, and now the right-hander will get a chance to face competition in the Pacific Coast League for the Isotopes beginning Tuesday. He'll likely work in a handful of games and then have a chance to return to the majors as soon as next weekend in a mid-to-late innings relief role.

  • Rockies' Dinelson Lamet: Participates in live bullpen

    Lamet (back) participated in a live bullpen session Saturday, Patrick Lyons of reports.

    Rockies manager Bud Black told reporters after the session that he looked healthy with a focus on improving his delivery and confidence when he returns. Lamet has dealt with injuries throughout his career, but he has a chance to return to the Colorado bullpen in a mid-to-late innings role within the next couple weeks.

  • Rockies' Dinelson Lamet: Placed on 15-day IL

    Lamet was placed on the 15-day injured list Thursday with lower-back stiffness.

    Lamet has been hammered for 16 runs -- 15 earned -- on 14 hits and 12 walks through 10.2 innings of relief this season with the Rockies. He'll likely head on a minor-league rehab assignment before returning to try to get into a better groove.

  • Rockies' Dinelson Lamet: Behind Johnson for saves

    Lamet struck out two and allowed two hits in a scoreless seventh inning Thursday and was not used in Friday's save situation against the Padres.

    Pierce Johnson got the ball in the ninth inning Friday and successfully protected a 4-1 lead, allowing one hit while striking out two. It's unclear whether Lamet would have figured into the eighth or ninth inning if he hadn't already pitched Thursday. Regardless, for now, Johnson looks like the top Rockies reliever to roster with Daniel Bard on the 15-day injured list due to anxiety.

  • Rockies' Dinelson Lamet: Reaches deal with Colorado

    Lamet signed a one-year, $5 million contract with the Rockies on Wednesday.

    Lamet was claimed off waivers by the Rockies in August after he was traded to the Brewers and designated for assignment, and he was able to avoid arbitration with his new team. The 30-year-old allowed 13 earned runs over 12.1 innings with San Diego prior to the trade but pitched better for Colorado with a 4.05 ERA across 20 frames.
