The Rockies first game of spring looks quite a bit like an opening day lineup. All the key players are there (Tulo, Cargo, Arenado, etc.), with other players vying for a spot on the field as well (LeMahieu, Barnes, etc). It is exciting to get the season underway, even if it is a spring training game and the main boys will be walking away after an All Star like two inning appearance.
Franklin Morales will get the ball and try to show why he is suited for the fifth spot in the rotation.
In other Spring Training notes Drew Stubbs is out of the lineup with an esophagus issue. Apparently he has a difficult time swallowing solid foods at random times and it flared up over the last day or so, making it difficult for him to get nourishment. He was treated, but the team is taking precautions by benching him. He seemed very nonchalant about the whole thing.
Injury update on Jayson Aquino who was hit in the head by a come-backer yesterday in intersquad games. He was taken to the hospital, but didn’t have a concussion and is feeling much better today.
