Rockies' Robert Stephenson: Gets $1.28M deal for 2022

Stephenson and the Rockies agreed Tuesday on a one-year, $1.28 million contract to avoid arbitration, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports. The 29-year-old righty was one of the Rockies' more dependable middle relievers in 2021, turning in a 3.13 ERA and 1.30 WHIP while striking out 52 over 46 innings. He could pick up more setup work after logging only four holds a season ago, but he'll likely enter 2022 behind all of Alex Colome, Carlos Estevez and Daniel Bard in the pecking order for saves.

Colorado Rockies 2022 player projections: Robert Stephenson

Robert Stephenson was acquired by the Colorado Rockies last offseason in what ended up being GM Jeff Bridich’s penultimate trade with the team. The Rockies and the Cincinnati Reds made a deal to acquire pitchers that were in need of a change of scenery. Jeff Hoffman was sent to Cincinnati and Stephenson to the Rockies (along with some minor leaguers going both ways as well).

Robert Stephenson showed flashes of potential

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.

Rockies' Robert Stephenson: Picks up save

Stephenson worked a hitless inning with two strikeouts, picking up the save in Wednesday's 3-2 extra-inning win over Atlanta. In his first appearance since being reinstated from the paternity list, Stephenson fired a fantastic inning of work in the 10th to secure his first save of the season after closer Carlos Estevez pitched the ninth. Although Stephenson did plunk Adam Duvall (maybe leave that part out of the bedtime stories), he got Austin Riley and Travis d'Arnaud swinging before getting Dansby Swanson to fly out to end the game. Not a bad welcome to the world present for the newest addition to the Stephenson family.
