Rockies' Ryan Feltner: Ready to compete for rotation spot
Feltner (elbow) is healthy heading into spring training and will compete for a rotation spot, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
Feltner had an injury-plagued 2023 campaign, first suffering a skull fracture after being struck by a line drive in mid-May. He ended the season on the injured list with elbow inflammation, but he has fully recovered and will be entering the spring at full strength. That doesn't necessarily mean he'll start the season in the majors or the rotation, as he posted a 5.82 ERA and 1.68 WHIP across 43.1 innings with the club in 2023. Peter Lambert and Noah Davis are the other primary candidates to be the team's fifth starter.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Ryan Feltner: Placed on 15-day IL
The Rockies placed Feltner on the 15-day injured list Wednesday with right elbow inflammation.
Feltner started the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Dodgers and probably wasn't going to make another appearance either way. The 27-year-old right-hander finishes the 2023 campaign with a 5.82 ERA, 1.69 WHIP and 38:28 K:BB in 10 major-league starts covering 43.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Ryan Feltner: Picked apart by Dodgers
Feltner (2-4) took the loss in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Dodgers, coughing up five runs on six hits and a walk over three innings as the Rockies were routed 11-2. He failed to strike out a batter.
Remarkably, none of the hits off Feltner went for extra bases, but four straight singles to lead off the second inning led to a five-run frame. The right-hander has proven to be a particularly poor fit for Coors Field, posting an 8.40 ERA and 2.07 WHIP in the Rockies' home stadium during his first season with the club compared to a 4.45 ERA and 1.48 WHIP on the road, but with two years of team control left before he even reaches arbitration, Colorado may keep Feltner around in 2024 to provide depth for the staff....

Rockies' Ryan Feltner: Impressive in return
Feltner did not factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing two hits and two walks over five scoreless innings in a 2-0 loss to the Padres. He struck out five.
Feltner made his first appearance since May 13 after being hit in the head by a comebacker and fired off five scoreless innings Tuesday. Encouragingly, Feltner got up to 86 pitches and appeared to be fully stretched out. However, Feltner was never in contention for the win, as the Rockies were no-hit until the ninth inning. The 26-year-old is tentatively scheduled to take the mound Sunday during a road matchup with the Cubs.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Ryan Feltner: Activated for start Tuesday
Feltner (head) was activated from the 60-day injured list ahead of his start Tuesday at San Diego.
Feltner suffered a small skull fracture and a concussion when he was struck by a line drive May 13 against the Phillies, but he is back at full strength and can fit in a couple more turns in the Rockies' rotation before the conclusion of the 2023 campaign. The 27-year-old right-hander threw 66 pitches over 4.2 innings of one-run ball in his third and final minor-league rehab start last week with Triple-A Albuquerque.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Ryan Feltner: Set for return Tuesday
Feltner (head) will be activated from the 60-day injured list to start Tuesday's game against the Padres, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
Feltner suffered a scary injury May 13 against the Phillies after taking a line drive to the head, and he was later diagnosed with a concussion and a small skull fracture. However, he made his third rehab start Tuesday at Triple-A Albuquerque without issue and has been given the green light by Colorado's medical staff to return. The right-hander fired 66 total pitches in his final rehab start, so he figures to be on a similar pitch limit in San Diego.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Ryan Feltner: Covers 4.2 innings in rehab start
Feltner (head) struck out four and allowed one earned run on three hits and two walks over 4.2 innings in his most recent rehab start Tuesday at Triple-A Albuquerque.
Making the third start of his rehab assignment and his second in a row with Albuquerque, Feltner built up to 66 pitches (40 strikes). Per MLB.com, Rockies manager Bud Black said Feltner will make one more rehab start in the minors before making his return from the 60-day injured list and likely sliding into the big-league rotation. Feltner has been on the shelf since mid-May after being struck in the head by a line drive and suffering a small skull fracture and concussion.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Ryan Feltner: Goes 2.2 innings in rehab start
Feltner (head) made the second start of his rehab assignment Thursday with Triple-A Albuquerque, covering 2.2 innings and striking out two while allowing one earned run on three hits and two walks.
After tossing three innings of one-run ball in his first rehab outing Sept. 1 at High-A Spokane, Feltner jumped up two levels for his second start. Though he retired one less hitter than he had in his prior appearance, Feltner was able to build his pitch count up from 36 to 50. He'll likely require one or more tune-up outings at Albuquerque before returning from the 60-day injured list and slotting back into the Colorado rotation in the back half of September....

Rockies' Ryan Feltner: Second rehab start Thursday
Feltner (head) will make his second minor-league rehab start Thursday with Triple-A Albuquerque, Patrick Lyons of TheDNVR.com reports.
Feltner tallied three strikeouts over three innings of one-run ball in his rehab debut last Friday with High-A Spokane and will now jump to the Triple-A level as he readies for a late-season return to the Rockies' starting rotation. The 27-year-old right-hander suffered a skull fracture and concussion when he got struck by a Nick Castellanos comebacker in mid-May.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Ryan Feltner: Strikes out three in rehab start
Feltner (head) struck out three and gave up one earned run on three hits and no walks over three innings in his rehab start Friday for High-A Spokane.
Feltner returned to the mound Friday for the first time since he suffered a skull fracture and major concussion when he was struck in the head by a line drive in a May 13 start against the Phillies. Because he's been on the shelf for three and a half months, Feltner will require multiple rehab outings to get stretched back out for starting duty, but the right-hander appears on track to return from the 60-day injured list before season's end....

Rockies' Ryan Feltner: Set to pitch Wednesday
Feltner (head) is set to begin a rehab assignment with High-A Spokane on Wednesday, Kelsey Wingert-Linch of AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain reports.
Feltner has taken a while to recover and resume a throwing progression after being struck on the head by a line drive in mid-May, but he's on the verge of appearing in a game for the first time in more than three months. Barring any setbacks, Feltner should be ready to return from the 60-day injured list before the campaign comes to a close.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Ryan Feltner: Should return this year
Manager Bud Black, according to Patrick Lyons of TheDNVR.com, "has confidence Feltner (head) will pitch again in 2023."
Feltner has been out of action since being struck on the head by a baseball in mid-May, but he resumed throwing earlier this month, and he is scheduled to face hitters Saturday "without a protective screen." It's unclear how close he is to embarking on a rehab assignment, but that might not be too far in the future if things continue going as planned.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Ryan Feltner: Cleared to throw
Feltner (head) will throw a bullpen session Saturday, MLB.com reports.
Feltner was cleared to begin throwing again in late July after recovering from a fractured skull and subsequent serious concussion symptoms. He is set to throw two bullpen sessions per week for a few weeks and then progress to a rehab assignment. That won't leave him much time to return during the regular season, though manager Bud Black told the media that both the team and Feltner believe it's important for him to get back on the mound prior to the winter to clear any mental hurdles that may exist due to his injury....

Rockies' Ryan Feltner: Shifts to 60-day IL
The Rockies transferred Feltner (head) from the 15-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Monday.
Colorado still hasn't offered a concrete timeline for Feltner's return to game action, but his move to the 60-day IL ensures that he won't be available for the big club until after the All-Star break while he recovers from the small head fracture and concussion he sustained when he was struck by a comebacker in a May 13 start versus the Phillies. The transaction clears up a spot on the 40-man roster for left-hander Ryan Rolison (shoulder), who was reinstated from the 60-day IL and optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque.... See More ... See Less
