Updated:

When we look at the central core of the Rockies' batting lineup, it would be easy to conclude this team is going to be explosive. Colorado might have the most impressive 2 through 5 set of hitters in baseball, or at least as good as anyone else. The problems with many unflattering projections for overall team performance heading into 2020 must involve the pieces surrounding this block of strong bats. There is potential power at the leadoff, but limited speed.

If opposition pitching can navigate through the top five, the bottom of the Colorado order isn't frightening anyone. Pitching in Colorado is always a problem for both the home team and the visitors. The Rockies have a couple of decent pitchers at the top of the rotation. It is the average to below average estimates of the bottom three that is troubling. Colorado also doesn't have a strong bullpen to protect situations where they do jump to an early lead.

FAQ

Colorado is a lineup loaded with names, but they struggle away from home with severe home-road splits. The Rockies tend to have a lot of names come in and out of the lineup due to injuries. Ryan McMahon and Garrett Hampson have been long time prospects ready for playing time, and that will be the case again this year. The left side of the infield is still where the power is with Trevor Story and Nolan Arenado. Both hit in the top half of the lineup with Charlie Blackmon, who is looking to be more consistent in 2020. The rest of the lineup is rather weak, with a platoon split at catcher. Matt Kemp also made the roster, but it is still up in the air as far as what version we will see of him.
