Keep track of the Rockies' recent transactions and injury updates throughout the season.




Day to day


10-day IL

RHP (right forearm flexor strain)
Expected return:
TBD, depending on whether he needs a Minor League rehab assignment
Gray threw a bullpen session at about "90 percent," using all his pitches, at Coors Field on June 14 and immediately reported feeling healthy. Gray said the biggest issue is the timing of his delivery. So if he checks out well physically as expected, Gray plans to face hitters at Coors on June 16. The feedback from that will tell him whether he is ready to ramp up for a return to the rotation or if he will need a Minor League rehab assignment. (Last updated: June 14)

1B (right elbow injury)
Expected return: TBD
The Rockies will not advance Adams, injured June 8, to the next phase of recovery and rehab until pain has subsided, manager Bud Black said. (Last updated: June 14)

RHP (right lat strain)
Expected return:
Manager Bud Black said Sheffield's strain is similar to the one that kept Kyle Freeland sidelined for nearly the first two months of the season, but it could take Sheffield longer. But Sheffield reported June 14 that he is healing and believes he can return quicker than thought. Sheffield said he has gained valuable information by talking to Freeland. (Last updated: June 14)

RHP Peter Lambert (Tommy John surgery)
Expected return: Sometime in 2021

Minors (but injured)

LHP (appendicitis)
Expected return: At least one month
Rolison had his appendix taken out and will be shelved for about six weeks, according to manager Bud Black. Rolison, the Rockies' No. 2 prospect according to MLB Pipeline and the organization’s highest-rated pitcher, was promoted from Double-A Hartford to Triple-A Albuquerque during the middle of May.
