  • Rockies' Ty Blach: Outrighted to Triple-A

    Blach went unclaimed off waivers Wednesday and was sent outright to Triple-A Albuquerque.

    Blach posted a 5.54 ERA and 1.64 WHIP through 74 innings in 2023, and he'll have the opportunity to elect free agency in the offseason. The 32-year-old southpaw holds a 5.66 ERA since 2022, though playing his home games at Coors Field may have contributed to his inflated numbers over the past two seasons.

  • Rockies' Ty Blach: Allows four runs in no-decision

    Blach did not factor into the decision Friday, allowing four runs on seven hits and two walks over five innings against the Twins. He struck out four.

    Blach allowed four runs through the first three innings and did not pitch a clean inning all night, but managed to leave in line for the win, only for the Colorado bullpen to squander it. Following a start in Baltimore on Aug. 27 in which he allowed just one run over seven innings, Blach has struggled to close out the season, allowing at least four runs in five of his final six starts while carrying an ERA of 8.10 over 30 innings during that stretch.

  • Rockies' Ty Blach: Falters late against Cubs

    Black (3-3) took the loss Sunday against the Cubs, allowing four runs on six hits and three walks while striking out five over 5.1 innings.

    Blach struck out the side in the opening frame after walking the first batter he faced and was able to prevent any major damage until the sixth inning. With his third time facing the Cubs' order, the left-hander surrendered consecutive hits to put two runners in scoring position before a sacrifice fly and a two-run blast from Patrick Wisdom plated three runs and abruptly led to a pitching change. Blach's five strikeouts was just the third time he's reached that mark this season, and he's now given up at least four runs in four of his last five starts. The 32-year-old holds a 5.42 ERA, 1.63 WHIP and 46:22 K:BB in 73 innings and lines up for one more start against the Twins.

  • Rockies' Ty Blach: Hit hard in loss

    Blach (3-2) allowed seven runs on nine hits and two walks while striking out three over 3.2 innings, taking the loss Monday versus the Padres.

    For the second time in three starts, Blach allowed three home runs. They accounted for six of the season-high seven runs scored against Blach in this start. He's given up 19 runs across 19.2 innings in September after pitching fairly well in August (3.71 ERA over 26.2 innings). The southpaw has a 5.32 ERA, 1.63 WHIP and 41:19 K:BB through 67.2 innings over 18 appearances (11 starts) this season. Blach is lined up for a road outing against the Cubs over the weekend.

  • Rockies' Ty Blach: Earns win despite early struggles

    Blach (3-1) earned the win Wednesday, allowing three runs on nine hits and one walk over five innings against the Cubs. He struck out four.

    Blach found himself in a jam on multiple occasions Wednesday, surrendering back-to-back hits to open both the first and third innings, which would lead to three runs coming across for Chicago. The lefty matched his season high with nine hits allowed on the afternoon, but he still managed to make it through five frames for the fourth consecutive start while securing his third win of the year. Blach has allowed at least three runs in three straight outings, though he's still 2-0 over that stretch despite a 6.75 ERA.

  • Rockies' Ty Blach: Falters in sixth inning

    Blach allowed four runs on eight hits and a walk while striking out six over five-plus innings in a no-decision versus the Giants on Friday.

    Blach kept the Giants off the board for five innings, then gave up back-to-back-to-back home runs to Wilmer Flores, Mitch Haniger and J.D. Davis in the sixth. This is the first time all year Blach's allowed multiple homers in an outing, a feat made all the more impressive given his home park -- and more perplexing, since this was a road start. The southpaw is at a 4.58 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and 34:16 K:BB over 59 innings through 16 appearances (nine starts) this season. He's lined up for a home outing against the Cubs next week.

  • Rockies' Ty Blach: Yields five runs in win

    Blach (2-1) allowed five runs on nine hits and three walks and struck out two over six innings to earn the win over the Blue Jays on Saturday.

    Blach didn't pitch all that well, but he was able to limit the damage to the first two innings. That gave the Rockies enough time to rally ahead and get him off the hook. Blach had a pair of quality starts in August, but the five runs he allowed Saturday marked a season high. Through 15 appearances (eight starts), he has a 4.33 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 28:15 K:BB over 54 innings. The southpaw is projected to make his next start in San Francisco.

  • Rockies' Ty Blach: Hurls seven strong frames

    Blach did not factor into the decision Sunday, allowing one run on three hits and one walk over seven innings against the Orioles. He struck out seven.

    Blach wiggled his way out of a based-loaded jam in the fourth to keep the Orioles scoreless, then allowed a solo home run to Cedric Mullins in the fifth, which was the only blemish against him. Otherwise, Blach consistently kept the O's off the basepaths in throwing seven high-quality innings. It was the longest outing of the year for Blach, who needed only 86 pitches and left with a 3-1 lead prior to the bullpen giving up the lead in the eighth. He'll carry a decent 3.94 ERA into a scheduled home start next weekend against Toronto.

  • Rockies' Ty Blach: Three earned runs in no-decision

    Blach did not factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing three runs on seven hits and three walks over four innings in a 12-4 loss against the Rays. He struck out four.

    The 32-year-old yielded a run-scoring single to Jose Siri in the third and another RBI single to Yandy Diaz in the fourth. Since Blach returned to the big-league squad on June 30, he has posted a 3.00 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 15:9 K:BB across 30 innings.

  • Rockies' Ty Blach: Solid in no-decision

    Blach did not factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing two runs on six hits and two walks over five innings against the Diamondbacks. He struck out two.

    Blach managed to escape Tuesday's home start relatively unscathed, with all of the damage against him coming via a two-run homer by Christian Walker in the third. Blach has been a reliable arm for the Rockies since entering the rotation and owns a 3.05 ERA with an 8:6 K:BB over his last four outings (20.2 innings). He's tentatively scheduled to make his next appearance on the road against the Rays.

  • Rockies' Ty Blach: Tosses quality start Thursday

    Blach allowed one run on three hits and two walks while striking out two batters over six-plus innings in a no-decision against the Dodgers on Thursday.

    Blach got through six frames without allowing a run before serving up a solo homer to Max Muncy to begin the seventh. That led to Blach getting the hook and having to settle for a no-decision, though it was still a promising outing overall. The left-hander finished with his first quality start in a campaign during which he's pitched mostly out of the bullpen. Since moving into the rotation at the end of July, Blach has allowed five runs over 15.2 innings for a solid 2.87 ERA. However, he's struck out just six batters over that span and has just 13 punchouts across 32 frames overall on the campaign.

  • Rockies' Ty Blach: Falters versus Cardinals

    Blach (1-1) allowed four runs on eight hits and a walk while striking out two over 4.2 innings to take the loss Saturday versus the Cardinals.

    Blach had pitched eight scoreless innings over his previous two outings, both starts, but he wasn't so fortunate this time around. Just two of the hits he allowed went for extra bases, but those knocks were responsible for three of the runs on his line. The veteran southpaw has a 4.85 ERA, 1.58 WHIP and 11:4 K:BB through 26 innings over 10 appearances (three starts) this season. With the Rockies desperate for starting pitching, he should remain in the rotation, and he's tentatively projected for a road start versus the Dodgers next week.

  • Rockies' Ty Blach: Remaining in rotation

    Manager Bud Black said after Sunday's win over the Athletics that Blach will remain in the rotation and start during next weekend's series in St. Louis, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

    Blach performed well as Sunday's starter, allowing three hits and a walk while striking out two in five scoreless innings to pick up his first win of the season. He tossed just 52 pitches in the outing, a slight increase after throwing 42 pitches in his last start. He'll have another opportunity to showcase his potential as a starter next weekend against the Cardinals.

  • Rockies' Ty Blach: Draws another starting assignment

    Blach is slated to start Sunday's game against the Athletics at Coors Field, Thomas Harding of reports.

    After making his most recent appearance -- and his first since July 1 -- as the Rockies' opening pitcher last Sunday in Miami, Blach will draw another starting assignment. The veteran southpaw worked three innings and 41 pitches his last time out against Miami before turning the game over to the bullpen, but he could be able to reach five innings and thus qualify for the win Sunday if he's economical with his pitch count. Even so, Blach won't make for a recommended streaming option even in deeper leagues while he'll be pitching in the unforgiving confines of Coors Field.

  • Rockies' Ty Blach: Three shutout innings as opener

    Blach did not factor into the decision Sunday, allowing two hits over three scoreless innings in a 3-2 loss to Miami. He struck out two.

    Blach made his first start of the campaign Sunday, serving as the opening arm for a bullpen game. Despite donning the opener tag, Blach went three innings and turned in his third consecutive scoreless outing (six innings). Though Blach has spent a significant portion of 2023 in the minors, he owns a 5.51 ERA and a 7:2 K:BB through eight appearances (16.1 innings) at the MLB level.

  • Rockies' Ty Blach: Serving as opener Sunday

    Blach will serve as the Rockies' opener Sunday versus the Marlins, Thomas Harding of reports.

    It will be his first time working as an opener in 2023. Blach, 32, has allowed 13 runs -- 10 earned -- on 24 hits and two walks in 13.1 innings this season at the major-league level. Connor Seabold, recently demoted to the bullpen, could come on as a bulk reliever for Colorado in Sunday's game.

  • Rockies' Ty Blach: Selected to MLB bullpen

    Colorado selected Blach's contract from Triple-A Albuquerque on Friday.

    Blach made the Rockies' Opening Day bullpen this spring but was cut loose before the end of April after allowing 13 runs -- 10 earned -- over 11 innings. He'll get another shot in a low-leverage role.

  • Rockies' Ty Blach: Sent outright to Triple-A

    Blach cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Albuquerque on Tuesday, Danielle Allentuck of The Denver Gazette reports.

    As anticipated, Blach will stick in the Colorado organization after none of MLB's other 29 teams put a claim in for the 32-year-old soft-tossing lefty. Before he was booted off the Rockies' 40-man roster and 26-man active roster, Blach appeared in six games out of the Colorado bullpen and pitched to a 8.18 ERA and 2.18 WHIP over 11 innings.

  • Rockies' Ty Blach: Removed from 40-man roster

    The Rockies designated Blach for assignment Saturday.

    Blach gave up 10 earned runs while striking out four over 11 innings of long relief for Colorado before getting cast off the 40-man roster. Outfielder Randal Grichuk (hernia) was activated from the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.

  • Rockies' Ty Blach: Part of Opening Day bullpen

    Blach will have his contract selected from Triple-A Albuquerque, Steve Adams of MLB Trade Rumors reports.

    Blach was signed to an NRI deal before the start of the spring season, and the left-hander has impressed in the Cactus League with a 0.93 ERA and 8:2 K:BB over 9.2 innings with the Rockies. Blach will be a part of the Colorado bullpen, and likely get the ball in the middle-innings as a potential bridge to Daniel Bard.
