In 2021, Rockies games will be locally televised on AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain, while some will be on MLB Network (out of market only, but those will also be on AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain), and others may be nationally televised on ESPN, Fox or Fox Sports 1.

Rockies 2021 Season Preview

The Rockies went 26-34 in the pandemic-shortened 2020 campaign, good for fourth in the NL West.

They were below average at the dish, ranking 18th in the majors in OPS (.716), and among baseball’s worst on the mound, ranking 29th in ERA (5.82).

To most observers, the major league club took a step back on the field over the offseason, as tends to happen when a squad deals a five-time All-Star third baseman like Nolan Arenado for five St. Louis Cardinals prospects.

Despite Arenado’s departure, manager Bud Black suggested late in spring training that his players thought they were being overlooked.

“As far as the makeup of this team — the guys, the character, the work ethic, the desire, the will — all those things are in place,” he said, according to MLB.com. “There’s been a lot of talk inside the walls of the clubhouse. I’ll share very little about it. I think a few players have commented on some of these projections. We’re willing to take on the season, see where it goes.”

One player the Rockies will lean on to help offset the loss of Arenado’s bat: C.J. Cron, who joined on a minor league pact then had his contract selected.

The slugging first baseman, hitting .257/.312/.464 for his career, logged just 13 games last year before suffering a season-ending knee injury. He managed 4 home runs across 52 at-bats.

“I hurt the knee playing defense, so I knew it wouldn’t really affect my swing,” the 31-year-old said during spring training, according to The Denver Post. “Just getting out on defense the first week or so felt odd. But I’m comfortable with it now. I’m confident that it’s good to go. Playing this whole spring with no problems has been good.”

Cron, a right-handed bat who predictably fares better against lefties, has been relegated to platoon duty for much of his career, lending to his reaching the 500 at-bat mark just once in his seven seasons. That lone year, as a member of the Tampa Bay Rays in 2018, he hit .253/.323/.493 with 30 home runs and 74 RBI across 140 contests.

“We’ve looked at how his body was moving, and he seems to be healthy from the knee injury last year,” Black said in spring training, per The Denver Post. “So physically, he’s in a good spot. We watched him in practice. Is the body firing? What’s the bat speed? How’s the defense?

“We’ve seen what we needed to see. We saw bat speed. We saw exit velocity. We saw him handling certain pitches you need to handle come April 1. Everything has lined up for him to be a productive hitter in our lineup.”
