Yency Almonte is having an anti-Coors season

2021 has been a forgettable year for Yency Almonte. He is eligible for salary arbitration next season, but a career-worst 8.37 ERA has shifted his potential payday from what was expected last year.

In 2020, Almonte had the ninth-best bWAR on the entire roster.

Now, he’s at risk of being non-tendered by the Rockies this winter.

A month-long stint on the COVID IL kept Almonte out for almost all of July. He has otherwise toughed it out in the Rockies bullpen for the entire season, pitching every two or three days and fighting to regain any sense of 2020 momentum.
