Justin Lawrence is on the brink of big league stability

PHOENIX — Justin Lawrence has a big league ERA of 2.19. That figure is well beneath the average in the Rockies bullpen and across relievers league-wide, and it’s far from the only category he’s excelled in. “The whole thought of finally being in the big leagues or...

Justin Lawrence has found his big league form

It’s been a difficult stretch for hard-throwing Panamanian righty Justin Lawrence. A highly-touted pitching prospect who threw straight gas via a sidearm delivery, Lawrence entered 2019 with high expectations. He made 38 appearances across Double-A Hartford and Triple-A Albuquerque while getting roughed up to the tune of an 8.76 ERA.

Rockies' Justin Lawrence: Optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque

Lawrence was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on Saturday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports. Lawrence appeared in five games this spring, surrendering three earned runs on four hits while striking out five over five innings. The right-hander will begin the season at the minor league level, but considering the lack of top-tier options in the bullpen for the Rockies, he'll likely rejoin the big-league squad at some point in the coming months.

Justin Lawrence can be a “weapon” in Rockies’ bullpen

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Justin Lawrence is an intriguing reliever. There’s no doubt about that. The right-hander with the side-arm delivery can throw a 100 mph fastball from a funky angle, then come back with a dipping, 85 mph slider that ties a hitter in knots. “What a weapon,”...

Rockies rookies Justin Lawrence and Ben Bowden spent 2021 shuttling between the majors and minors.

Welcome to the 2021 edition of Ranking the Rockies, where we take a look back at every player to log playing time for the Rockies in 2021. The purpose of this list is to provide a snapshot of the player in context. The “Ranking” is an organizing principle that’s drawn from Baseball Reference’s WAR (rWAR). It’s not something the staff debated. We’ll begin with the player with the lowest rWAR and end up with the player with the highest.
