This one is not easy. It's complicated. A lot of the rotation woes, is because of injuries, but the Rockies rotation should be: Jimenez, De La Rosa, Cook, Francis, and Chacin.
In many ways this is close to the same as #3, get Healthy.
Jason Hammel should NOT be in the rotation for the Rockies. He's been terrible this season. He's given up at least three runs in each of his starts this season, and gave up five to the Royals on Friday night.
Of Hammel's six starts for the Rockies in 2010, they have won only one game. Starting Hammel is almost an automatic loss this year.
A healthy return of Jorge De La Rosa, forces Hammel out of the rotation, or it should. However getting Jason Hammel out of the rotation is easier said then done, but it has to be done.
Hammel, for the record, is out of options so he can't be sent down with out clearing waivers.
Instead of exposing Hammel to waivers when JDLR returns, the Rockies might send down Jhoulys Chacin as he still has options.
When Franklin Morales returns, the Rockies also need to look at stretching him out and making him starter. He has the stuff to be a starter and seems to me to have the mental make up of a reliever.
The Rockies and Morales need to figure out what his future is going to be, and go with it.
