PHOENIX (AP) — The Colorado Rockies have made Bill Schmidt their permanent general manager, promoting him from the interim GM spot he’d held since May.

The Rockies were 74-85 when they made the announcement before playing at Arizona.

The Rockies began the year in turmoil, having traded franchise star Nolan Arenado to St. Louis in the offseason, and were 9-17 after April.

Colorado hasn’t had a losing month since May and is .500 since the All-Star break.
