The Rockies were forecast to be one of the worst teams in baseball and fulfilled those expectations by finishing in the basement of the NL West Division with a woeful 68-94 card. Colorado won six fewer games than the previous season and allowed an MLB-high 873 runs.
First baseman C.J. Cron hit .257 and led the team with 29 homers and 102 RBIs, while Kyle Freeland and German Marquez both won a team-high nine games.
Without significant upgrades to a lackluster roster, the Rockies will be in for yet another dismal season in 2023.
The Colorado Rockies are a National League (NL) West division team based in Denver, Colorado. They were founded in 1993 as an expansion team as the first MLB team to be based in the Rocky Mountain region.
The Rockies have since established themselves as one of the National League's most prominent teams, having made several postseason appearances and winning their first National League pennant in 2007. They were defeated by the Boston Red Sox in their only-ever World Series appearance that same year.
They play their home games at Coors Field. It opened on April 26th, 1995, and has a capacity of over 50,000 spectators. Coors Field is known for being a hitter’s park due to its elevation and its spacious outfield dimensions which allow more home runs than most other ballparks.
The biggest rivals of the Colorado Rockies are the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants from the NL West division. The Rockies have had mixed success against these two teams throughout their history.
Some iconic players who have worn a Rockies jersey include Hall-of-Famer Larry Walker, as well as Todd Helton, Troy Tulowitzki, Carlos Gonzalez and Nolan Arenado.
