It’s a big week this week for the Colorado Rockies. Thanks to a doubleheader with the Arizona Diamondbacks, they play eight of their remaining 34 games this week. Kyle Kendrick and his 6.43 ERA will return for one of the games of the doubleheader on Tuesday as he tries to build some value for another team going into 2016 (I guess?). We’ll also see Jon Gray return to the Coors Field mound on Wednesday as he continues to look for his first Major League win. In the latter half of the week, the Rockies will look to play spoiler against the San Francisco Giants as they try to make a run at the playoffs. Here’s a quick look ahead to the rest of week 22.
