You can’t win them all every single month of every single baseball season, and these next three guys are living proof of that. Here’s our list of 3 Colorado Rockies Players Who Have Been A Disappointment So Far In 2015.
RF Carlos Gonzalez
Gonzalez's overall production hasn't been terrible -- a .254/.310/.435 slash line with 11 home runs and 31 RBIs in 79 games. However, those are far from transcendent numbers for a guy pegged by the Rockies to be a franchise cornerstone in the middle of the lineup. His .744 OPS this year is a full 116 points lower than his career average, and while he's starting to turn it up in July, his inconsistency has been a troubling sign.
RHP Kyle Kendrick
Kendrick's given up 23 home runs this year -- the most in all of Major League Baseball. You can attribute some of that to the Coors Field factor, but his 5.94 ERA and 1.45 WHIP are emblematic of a pitcher who's been laying in fat pitches over the heart of the plate all season long. This isn't exactly what the Rockies signed up for when acquired the former Phillies stalwart this offseason.
RHP Jordan Lyles
Lyles' 2015 campaign was disappointing on multiple levels, especially considering that he was tabbed as one of the team's sure things in a rotation that has been a mess in recent seasons. Lyles pitched to a 5.14 ERA and a substandard 5.5 K/9 before a serious toe injury ended his season prematurely in early June.Back to the Colorado Rockies Newsfeed
