Tom Murphy is still struggling to find any consistency at the plate. After getting hits in five out of six games he’s back on a four game slide. The good news is that the hitter which Colorado wanted is still there, and coming back from injury. He may just need another off season.

Someone not having any issues is Steve Geltz. In his alst ten games the right handed pitcher has an era of 2.31, which pulls his season numbers down below 3.00. He also got his second win of the season this past Saturday.

If he keeps this up Geltz may get another crack at the bigs,

Mike Burke is not quite on a Geltz like tear but the reliever is starting to bring down what was a very high ERA. In his last ten Burke is pitching 4.82, bringing his season ERA to 5.62 from a high of 6.00 back in July.

Nick Sinay has found his bat. After living below the Mendoza line all year he has, in his past ten games batted .250. Though he is “0 for” in the past week he was up to .191 at the end of July. A solid August could get him north of .200.

Mike Kaelin is still having trouble adjusting to A-Advanced ball. He got a loss hung on him July 30th and is 1 and 1 for the year.

Blair Lakso was doing well until mid July when his ERA went from around four to up over 9 over the course of three appearances which totaled 5 innings. He has settled down a bit recently, his past two games have totaled three innings and he has surrendered just a single run.

Logan Harasta is still recovering from surgery, despite being on the active roster he has not pitched for a month.
