The Rockies have released left-handed reliever Harrison Musgrave, according to Chris Hilburn-Trenkle of Baseball America. The club previously outrighted him off its 40-man roster last summer.
Now 26 years old, Musgrave entered the professional ranks as an eighth-round pick of the Rockies in 2014. He received his first promotion to Colorado in 2018 despite posting less-than-stellar numbers in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League in the preceding couple years. With 44 2/3 innings as a rookie, Musgrave finished seventh among Rockies relievers in that category, though he struggled to prevent runs in that span. Musgrave could only muster a 4.63 ERA/5.31 FIP with 6.45 K/9, 4.43 BB/9 and a 38.3 percent groundball rate then.
Last season went down as an injury-shortened one for Musgrave, who battled elbow issues. His production in Colorado took steps forward, though it was in a much smaller sample of work. Across 10 innings, Musgrave allowed four earned runs on nine hits, seven walks and 12 strikeouts. He mostly spent the year in Triple-A Albuquerque, where he pitched to a whopping 10.13 ERA over 24 frames.

what could you have commented that added value to our lives? thats why.
Think of it as masking the comment section, not closing it
It would be interesting to see Musgrave’s home vs. away stats. Getting out of Coors Field might help him some.
Then again, it could just be that he sucks.
Great question. I just went and looked it up for his two seasons in the majors. He was much better at…..home….than away. Small sample size overall and especially last season yet it’s clear in both years.
So maybe you’re right, some teams will see that and give him a chance unless his arm is compromised or something now and his velo or movement are down.
