The starting rotation at times included four rookies, but Black -- a former Major League starter -- helped this rotation go 63-56, for the second-highest starter win total in club history. Their five pitchers 25 and under -- No. 1 starter Jon Gray, plus rookies German Marquez, Antonio Senzatela, Kyle Freeland and Jeff Hoffman -- went a combined 53-32 in 113 starts, which were a club record for pitchers that young. Black's Rockies had adversity, as well.
Also, according to Statcast™, Lucroy swung and missed at just eight pitches outside the strike zone from his Aug. 3 Rockies debut until regular season's end -- the lowest such number in the Majors. For a club that had long dry spells because of out-of-control at-bats, Lucroy could be an important presence.
"We do have some internal kids who might either retain roles or step up into new roles," Bridich said. "But I do think we are going to have to look to add to our 'pen, whether it's via free agency or through trades. With the success [Holland] had, he'll certainly be a guy we talk to. Whether it's him or not, I don't know. "We're keeping our eyes and ears open to just about everything to try to address additions to our club."
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
