NL West Notes: Giants bullpen, Rockies catchers

The latest news from around the National League West.

MLB: Washington Nationals at San Francisco Giants Neville E. Guard-USA TODAY Sports

San Francisco’s bullpen hasn’t been a huge help this season, blowing leads of every variety. And while they have some really solid names in there, who have their fair share of problems, the issue may not be with them.

The Giants lineup has made it so that the bullpen is coming in during tighter games and not having a ton of leagues. Because of the offenses inability to tack onto leads, the bullpen has suffered.

More from around the National League West:

  • At the end of this season, the Rockies are going to have a major decision to make at catcher. With Nick Hundley’s contract being up, they will need to decide to either bring him back or let Tony Wolters play everyday.
  • The Padres are working with a bunch of technology companies to make their ballpark smarter.
  • Amid rumors that the front office is getting shaken up this offseason, and while not having a winning record since 2011, the Diamondbacks gave their president and chief executive officer Derrick Hall an eight-year contract.
  • The list gets longer for the Dodgers. With Scott Kazmir and Brett Anderson being added, that makes seven starting pitchers on the disabled list for LA.
