Rockies' Michael Toglia: Optioned to Triple-A
Colorado optioned Toglia to Triple-A Albuquerque on Tuesday.
Toglia showed some promising flashes down the stretch in 2022, but the 25-year-old first baseman and corner outfielder has slashed just .163/.224/.284 in 45 games (152 plate appearances) this season at the major-league level. Cole Tucker is being summoned from Albuquerque in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Michael Toglia: Sitting in third straight
Toglia is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Blue Jays, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
The switch-hitting Toglia finds himself on the bench for the third game in a row, this time versus Toronto right-hander Kevin Gausman after he had been excluded from the lineup against a pair of southpaws in the first two contests of the series. Dating back to Aug. 9, Toglia is slashing .127/.186/.291 with a 30.5 percent strikeout rate over a stretch of 17 games, and his ongoing slump may have prompted manager Bud Black to pull the plug on the youngster in an everyday role. Elehuris Montero will pick up a third straight start Sunday at Toglia's expense.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Michael Toglia: Flashing power potential
Toglia went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Sunday against the Orioles.
Toglia has held a regular role in the Colorado lineup since July 16, when he was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque. In that span, he's hit just .170 with a 33 percent strikeout rate, though he has homered in two of his last three starts -- neither of which have come at home. The Rockies have shown a willingness to let Toglia play through his struggles, though the addition of Hunter Goodman to the roster could complicate his playing time moving forward.... See More ...

Rockies' Michael Toglia: Takes seat Wednesday
Toglia is absent from the lineup for Wednesday's game in Tampa Bay.
Toglia slugged a home run in Tuesday's loss to the Rays but will begin Wednesday's contest on the bench. Charlie Blackmon is getting a start in right field and Jurickson Profar will be in the designated hitter spot while Toglia sits.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Michael Toglia: Moves to bench Wednesday
Toglia is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks.
After going 1-for-3 with a double, a walk, a stolen base, an RBI and a run in Tuesday's 8-5 loss, Toglia will take a seat in the series finale and make way for Nolan Jones in right field. While bouncing between right field and first base, Toglia had started in nine of the Rockies' last 10 games but went just 2-for-30 with 12 strikeouts.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Michael Toglia: Not starting Sunday
Toglia is not in the starting lineup Sunday against the Dodgers.
Toglia has seen an increased role since the trade deadline but has struggled in August. He is 4-for-37 with zero extra-base hits in the month. The 24-year-old has missed only one game since July 21, so Sunday likely serves as an off day. Elehuris Montero will get the start at first base, hitting seventh.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Michael Toglia: On bench Saturday
Toglia is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Cardinals.
Alan Trejo will get a rare turn in the starting lineup as Toglia heads to the bench after six consecutive starts. Toglia's been in a bad way at the plate, managing just four singles while striking out 12 times in his last 25 at-bats, but the Rockies are in full-blown evaluation mode and the 24-year-old Toglia likely still has some leash in a regular role....

Rockies' Michael Toglia: Takes hold of everyday role
Toglia will start in right field and bat seventh in Wednesday's game against the Padres.
With the Rockies moving first baseman C.J. Cron and outfielder Randal Grichuk ahead of the trade deadline, Toglia appears to be temporarily locked into an everyday role, at least until Colorado gets the likes of Charlie Blackmon (hand) and Kris Bryant (finger) back from the injured list. Toglia will pick up his fifth straight start Wednesday and his 10th start in the last 11 games. He's hitting just .194 with two extra-base hits over his last 10 contests.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Michael Toglia: Making most of plate appearances
Toglia went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk Wednesday against the Nationals.
Toglia has gotten five consecutive starts at first base with C.J. Cron (back) sidelined. He's now collected hits in each of his last three games while tallying a double, a homer, three RBI and three runs scored. Cron is expected back Friday, so Toglia's playing time in the short term will likely dry up, but he could see more run across the final two months of the campaign depending on the Rockies' moves at the trade deadline....

Rockies' Michael Toglia: Nabs fifth straight start
Toglia will start at first base and bat fifth in Wednesday's game against the Nationals.
He'll stick in the lineup for a fifth consecutive game, manning first base once again while C.J. Cron (back) remains out of the lineup. Over the previous four games, Toglia went 3-for-16 with a double, two runs and two RBI. Cron has said that he expects to return to the lineup Friday versus Oakland, so Toglia could soon be headed back into a reserve role.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Michael Toglia: Pops homer Sunday
Toglia went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Sunday's 8-7 extra-innings win over the Yankees.
Toglia got the nod at first base, spelling C.J. Cron, who served as the designated hitter Sunday. The homer was Toglia's first of the campaign. He's batting just .172 with a 2:10 BB:K over 31 major-league plate appearances, and it's unlikely he sees much more than a reserve role while on the Rockies' 26-man roster.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Michael Toglia: Officially promoted
The Rockies recalled Toglia from Triple-A Albuquerque on Friday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
With Elehuris Montero headed back to the minors, Toglia will provide the Rockies with a depth option at first baseman. The 24-year-old is slashing .253/.364/.479 through 343 plate appearances in Triple-A but has yet to carry even that modest success into the majors.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Michael Toglia: Expected to be recalled
Toglia is expected to be recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque by the Rockies prior to Friday's game versus the Yankees, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
The Rockies previously announced the demotion of Elehuris Montero and it sounds like Toglia will be the corresponding move. Toglia has struggled during his major-league opportunities but sports a .981 OPS with eight home runs over his last 23 games with Albuquerque.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Michael Toglia: Sent back to Triple-A
Colorado optioned Toglia to Triple-A Albuquerque on Monday.
C.J. Cron (back) has been activated from the injured list in a corresponding move and will reclaim the Rockies' everyday first base gig. Toglia, 24, carries a weak .124/.240/.217 batting line in 10 games (25 plate appearances) this season at the MLB level.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Michael Toglia: Rejoins big club
Toglia was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque on Sunday.
The 24-year-old has spent the past month with the Isotopes and will rejoin the Rockies on Sunday after Mike Moustakas was traded to the Angels. Toglia has a .174/.240/.217 slash line in 25 major-league plate appearances this year, though he's hit well at Triple-A with an .820 OPS.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Michael Toglia: Sent back to Triple-A
Colorado optioned Toglia to Triple-A Albuquerque on Friday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
Toglia has posted high-level power totals in the minors and showed some promise during his first taste of major-league action last season, but he was slashing just .174/.240/.217 in 25 plate appearances with the Rockies since being recalled May 15. Nolan Jones will join the big-league club in a corresponding roster move.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Michael Toglia: Sits in favor of Moustakas
Toglia is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Marlins.
Mike Moustakas will step in at first base after Toglia had started at the position in five of the Rockies' previous seven games. The 24-year-old switch hitter is slashing .150/.190/.200 over 21 plate appearances with the big club this season, so he wouldn't seem to have much leash atop the depth chart while the Rockies continue to play without C.J. Cron (back).... See More ... See Less
