Since the Midsummer Classic, the Colorado Rockies have seen their season virtually slip through the fingers of a lackluster pitching staff and uncharacteristically flat offense.
Experiments like third baseman Nolan Arenado and Corey Dickerson have lost their luster, and a bullpen that once ranked in the top 10 in baseball now ranks in the bottom third in ERA.
The Rockies have collectively lost the spark in July. Seven teams in the National League have scored more than 100 runs in the month of July. The Rockies, who managed to score the second-most runs in the NL in June, have posted just 88 runs this month, mirroring teams like Houston, Minnesota and Miami in terms of offensive production.
The Colorado pitching staff has been on a steady decline since the beginning of June and has cost the team wins, even when the offense puts up five-plus runs of support at times. The staff has posted a 4.62 ERA this month, ranking it 27th in ERA for July.
However, this is a team with enough talent at the dish to make a late-season run.
Here are the grades for each Rockies player in July.
