Todd Helton will swing his bat against live pitching for the first time this year, as he joins the lineup today against the Oakland A’s.
Helton hasn’t seen the batters box yet this spring, which is by design, giving him both time to slowly get back into play after surgery on his hip, as well as leaving something in the tank for his “Farewell Tour”. Or, because this is Todd we are talking about, his “Bye-Bye Brunch”.
Dex is back in the line-up after sitting out a few games with a mild ankle sprain.
