The 2023 Colorado Rockies season was their 31st in Major League Baseball and 29th season at Coors Field. Bud Black returned as Manager for his seventh year in 2023. The Rockies failed to improve on their 68–94 record from the previous season. They ended up finishing the season with the worst record in the National League at 59–103 (.364) due to a leaky defense despite scoring more runs than the playoff-bound Miami Marlins.

On September 26, the Rockies hit the 100 loss mark for the first time in franchise history after a loss to the rival Los Angeles Dodgers.

Offseason

Rule changes

Pursuant to the CBA, new rule changes will be in place for the 2023 season:[1]

Coaching staff changes

On October 13, 2022, the Rockies mutually parted ways with hitting coach Dave Magadan and reassigned third-base coach Stu Cole to a minor league position.[2] Magadan had been the Rockies hitting coach since the 2019 season, and Cole had been the third-base coach since the 2013 season. On November 7, 2022, the Rockies announced they had hired the New York Yankees' assistant hitting coach Hensley Meulens as their hitting coach for the 2023 season, and had promoted the Albuquerque Isotopes' manager Warren Schaeffer to the position of third-base coach.[3]

Roster departures

On November 6, 2022, Alex Colomé, Carlos Estévez, José Iglesias, Chad Kuhl, and José Ureña declared free agency.[4] On November 8, 2022, the Rockies declined their 2023 option on Scott Oberg.[5] On November 9, 2022, Dom Núñez was claimed off of waivers by the San Francisco Giants,[6] Ryan Vilade was claimed off of waivers by the Pittsburgh Pirates,[7] and Ty Blach, Helcris Olivarez, and Wynton Bernard were outrighted to Triple-A Albuquerque Isotopes.[8] The Rockies announced they had non–tendered utility player Garrett Hampson, immediately making him a free agent, on November 18, 2022.[9]

Roster additions

On November 15, the Rockies selected the contracts of infielder Warming Bernabel, pitcher Blair Calvo, infielder Julio Carreras, outfielder Brenton Doyle, and pitcher Riley Pint.[10]

Free agent signings

Starting pitcher José Ureña re-signed with the Rockies to a one–year contract on November 11, 2022.[11] Relief pitcher Brent Suter was claimed off of waivers by the Rockies from the Milwaukee Brewers on November 18, 2022.[12] The Rockies signed relief pitcher Pierce Johnson to a one-year contract on December 13, 2022. Relief pitcher Nick Mears was claimed off of waivers from the Texas Rangers on January 6, 2023.[13] On March 4, 2023, the Rockies signed relief pitcher Brad Hand to a one-year deal.[14] On March 5, the Rockies signed infielder Mike Moustakas to a minor-league deal.[15] Both signings were made after injuries to players already on the roster; relief pitcher Lucas Gilbreath and second baseman Brendan Rodgers.[16] Following an injury to outfielder Sean Bouchard, the Rockies signed outfielder Jurickson Profar to a 1-year contract on March 21, 2023.[17] On March 25, 2023, the Rockies selected the contracts of non-roster invitees pitcher Ty Blach, utilityman Harold Castro, and infielder Mike Moustakas.[18]

Trades

On November 6, 2022, the Rockies traded outfielder Sam Hilliard to the Atlanta Braves for minor league pitcher Dylan Spain.[19] On November 15, 2022, the Rockies traded minor league infielder Juan Brito to the Cleveland Guardians for outfielder Nolan Jones.[20] On December 6, 2022 the Rockies traded pitcher Chad Smith to the Oakland Athletics for minor league pitcher Jeff Criswell.[21] On December 18, 2022, the Rockies traded outfielder Connor Joe to the Pittsburgh Pirates for minor league pitcher Nick Garcia.[22] On January 17, 2023, the Rockies acquired Connor Seabold from the Boston Red Sox for cash considerations or a player to be named later.[23]

Spring Training

On January 27, 2023, the Rockies announced 22 non-roster invitees for spring training, including top prospects outfielder Zac Veen and catcher Drew Romo.

Regular season

June

On Saturday, June 24, the Rockies lost to the Los Angeles Angels in a 1-25 blowout, during which the Angels set new franchise records for both runs scored and hits recorded in a single game. The result was the worst upset in Rockies history, and the 13 runs allowed by Colorado in the 3rd inning is unmatched in the club's record.

Although the Angels outscored the Rockies by a run total of 32-12 over the course of the series, Colorado was victorious in the games played on Friday, June 23, and Sunday, June 25. This -20 run differential currently stands second only to the -23 recorded by the Louisville Colonels in their June 1897 series against the Chicago Colts as the worst run differential by a series-winning team in MLB history.
