Top Nick Mears News

  • Rockies' Nick Mears: Blows save versus Milwaukee

    Mears (1-4) was tagged with the loss and a blown save after he allowed two runs on two hits and two walks over two-thirds of an inning Tuesday against the Brewers.

    Mears didn't give up hard contact as the two hits against him were infield singles, but he was unable to get through the frame on 39 pitches. It's the second blown save of the season for the right-hander, who remains without a save but has seven holds to go along with an ugly 6.28 ERA. Closer Tyler Kinley threw three innings over the previous two days, which likely prompted manager Bud Black to look elsewhere for Tuesday's save opportunity.

  • Rockies' Nick Mears: Chance for saves this weekend

    Mears could be in the mix for save opportunities this weekend against the Pirates after the Rockies placed closer Justin Lawrence on the paternity list Friday.

    Mears was an effective high-leverage option through the first few weeks of the season with a 2.08 ERA and three holds in nine outings, but he's surrendered six runs over his past four appearances. Jake Bird should also be on the shortlist for saves, but neither pitcher provides much fantasy upside. The Rockies have only three saves as a team this season, and Lawrence should rejoin the club early next week.

  • Rockies' Nick Mears: Takes loss in ugly outing

    Mears (0-2) allowed two earned runs on three hits and a walk while striking out one to take the loss Monday against the Padres.

    Mears was on the mound for the second consecutive day, this time in the eighth inning with the task of keeping the score knotted at 1-1. He got two outs across the first three batters he faced but then allowed a double and a pair of singles to account for the damage and take his second loss of the season. Mears has looked to be in the mix for saves and has been used in high-leverage spots early on this season, though this outing won't help his case.

  • Rockies' Nick Mears: Works clean ninth inning

    Mears allowed one hit while striking out one in a scoreless ninth inning in Sunday's win over Mariners.

    Mears entered in a scoreless game at home, traditional usage for a closer. He handled the high-leverage situation well, as he erased a one-out single by inducing a double play from the next batter he faced. Jake Bird still has the only save for the Rockies this season, but Mears appears to be in consideration for the closer role as well.

  • Rockies' Nick Mears: Struggles in ninth inning

    Mears allowed one earned run on one hit and three walks while striking out one over two-thirds of an inning Monday against the Diamondbacks.

    Mears entered the game in the ninth inning with Colorado up by three and the chance to earn the first save of his career. He allowed only one ball out of the infield -- it was caught for an out -- but he struggled significantly with his control and was pulled with the bases loaded and two outs. Jake Bird relieved Mears and tallied the final out of the game to earn the save. Meanwhile, Justin Lawrence was used in a setup role, but Tyler Kinley -- who was unavailable Monday -- will likely be next in for saves over both Bird or Mears.

  • Rockies' Nick Mears: Returns to big leagues

    Mears was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque on Monday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

    Mears has yielded two runs over seven innings at the major-league level this season and had been pitching well of late with Albuquerque. He's taking Tommy Doyle's spot on the roster.

  • Rockies' Nick Mears: Activated and optioned

    Colorado activated Mears (oblique) from the 15-day injured list Tuesday and optioned him to Triple-A Albuquerque.

    Mears is recovered from the left oblique strain that sent him to the IL in late June, but the Rockies will keep him on the farm for the time being. He carries a rough 7.16 ERA in 16.1 innings of work this season at the Triple-A level.

  • Rockies' Nick Mears: Starting rehab assignment

    Mears (oblique) will begin a rehab assignment with the Rockies' Arizona Complex League affiliate Friday.

    Mears has been on the shelf since late June with a left oblique strain but is finally ready for games. He would figure to require a lengthy rehab stint and isn't necessarily a lock to rejoin the Rockies' bullpen this season.

  • Rockies' Nick Mears: Not yet ready for mound work

    Mears (oblique) has been playing catch since late July but hasn't yet been cleared to throw off a mound, MLB.com reports.

    Mears has been slow to bounce back from a left oblique strain, which forced him to the 15-day injured list June 28. Since he'll need to throw multiple bullpen sessions, face hitters in live batting practice and complete a rehab assignment prior to being activated, Mears doesn't look as though he'll be ready to rejoin the Rockies' bullpen until late August at the soonest.

  • Rockies' Nick Mears: Exits with oblique injury

    Mears left Tuesday's appearance against the Dodgers with a strained left oblique, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

    The right-hander threw a scoreless inning before being replaced by Matt Koch. For now, Mears should be considered day-to-day, but the Rockies will likely have him undergo further testing to see if a trip to the injured list is required.

  • Rockies' Nick Mears: Placed on 15-day IL

    Colorado placed Mears on the 15-day injured list Wednesday with a left oblique strain.

    Mears suffered the injury while making a relief appearance Tuesday night against the Dodgers and will be sidelined through the All-Star break. Gavin Hollowell is joining the Rockies' bullpen Wednesday in a corresponding move.

  • Rockies' Nick Mears: Back in big leagues

    Mears was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque on Sunday.

    Mears recovered from his oblique strain in early June but was sent to Triple-A after being activated from the injured list by the Rockies. He allowed two earned runs with eight strikeouts over six innings for Colorado before going down with the injury in mid-May.

  • Rockies' Nick Mears: Activated, optioned to minors

    The Rockies reinstated Mears (oblique) from the 15-day injured list Saturday and optioned him to Triple-A Albuquerque.

    Mears has been on the IL since May 15 with a left oblique strain. He's allowed two runs over six innings out of the big-league bullpen this season, but he will return to Triple-A where he holds a 6.97 ERA and 2.08 WHIP on the year.

  • Rockies' Nick Mears: Shelved with oblique strain

    The Rockies placed Mears on the 15-day injured list Monday with a left oblique strain, Danielle Allentuck of The Denver Gazette reports.

    Mears had given up two runs over six relief innings after being recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque in late April. He'll be eligible for activation later this month.

  • Rockies' Nick Mears: Recalled from Albuquerque

    Colorado recalled Mears from Triple-A Albuquerque on Sunday.

    Mears will take the place of Noah Davis on the 26-man roster after Davis was placed on the injured list with elbow inflammation. The right-hander will likely work in a low-leverage capacity out of the Colorado bullpen.

  • Rockies' Nick Mears: Optioned to Triple-A

    Mears was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque by the Rockies on Tuesday.

    Mears was claimed off waivers by the Rockies from the Rangers in January. The right-hander turned in a 1.27 ERA in seven innings during Cactus League play with 11 strikeouts, but he also walked six while allowing four hits in those contests. Mears will likely be an up-and-down option for the Colorado bullpen through the 2023 season.

  • Rockies' Nick Mears: Claimed by Rockies

    The Rockies claimed Mears off waivers from Texas on Friday.

    After spending just four days with the Rangers organization, Mears is on the move for the second time this offseason. The 26-year-old reliever recorded a 4.80 ERA and 1.40 WHIP in the minors last season, though he was able to throw two scoreless frames in the majors at the very end of the year. The Rockies are starving for depth in their bullpen, so it's very possible Mears begins the 2023 season in the majors.

  • Rangers' Nick Mears: DFA'd by Texas

    Mears was designated for assignment by the Rangers on Tuesday.

    Mears was claimed off waivers by the Rangers last week, but he was only briefly on the team's 40-man roster. The 26-year-old made only two big-league appearances last season and had a 4.74 ERA over 24.2 innings at Triple-A.

  • Rangers' Nick Mears: Claimed by Texas

    Mears was claimed off waivers by the Rangers on Friday.

    The 26-year-old was designated for assignment by the Pirates last weekend and will now join the Rangers. Mears missed the first four months of 2022 while recovered from elbow surgery, and he had a 4.74 ERA, 1.49 WHIP and 27:17 K:BB in 24.2 innings at the Triple-A level.

  • Pirates' Nick Mears: Designated for assignment

    Mears was designated for assignment Sunday.

    The Pirates acquired Connor Joe in a trade with Colorado and needed to clear a 40-man roster spot. A 26-year-old righty, Mears has a 97-mph fastball, but he also has a poor 14.9 percent walk rate in 30.1 MLB innings. He could get another shot in the majors if he can improve his control.
