  • Cuevas has PR on mind as he vies for OD roster
    Rookie outfielder Noel Cuevas -- whose family and native Puerto Rico were ravaged by Hurricane Maria in September -- is bringing awareness to a dire situation at a time when he's trying to make the Rockies' Opening Day roster.
  • Arenado not distracted by extension whispers
    Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado said there have been no talks about a contract extension, but if any did arise he does not want them to distract him from the season.
  • Rockies ready to sort out starting pitching depth
    Rockies manager Bud Black believes a Major League team needs to go into a season knowing it can depend on at least eight pitchers capable of starting. His Spring Training squad has seven who have actually done so. That means opportunity is there for pitchers to prove they are ready if needed.
  • All clubs to don Douglas caps for ST openers
    All 30 Major League teams will wear Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School baseball caps before their Spring Training games this weekend to show support for the Parkland, Fla., community and the Stoneman Douglas student body after the tragic shooting at the school on Feb. 14.

  • McMahon has inside track on first-base job
    After hitting .355 with 20 home runs and 88 RBIs combined at Double-A Hartford and Triple-A Albuquerque -- plus a small, but instructive big league debut -- McMahon sits atop the Rockies' depth chart at first base.
  • LeMahieu confident in self, approach to game
    Analysis of Rockies second baseman DJ LeMahieu often devolves into argument. One side promotes him as an underappreciated master of defense and possessor of an offensive game no longer appreciated. The other denigrates him his .404 career slugging average in six Rockies seasons -- not high enough with home games at Coors Field -- and essentially devalues the importance of the traits that have earned him Rawlings Gold Glove Awards.
  • Top prospect Rodgers ready for first Rox camp
    Brendan Rodgers , MLB Pipeline's top Rockies prospect, isn't saying much around Salt River Fields at Talking Stick, but he doesn't have to say anything to be seen. His 2017 spoke volumes -- a combined .336 with 18 home runs, a .567 slugging percentage and 64 RBIs at Class A Advanced Lancaster and Double-A Hartford in his age 20 season.
  • Arenado readies for new first baseman
    There is another side to Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado's highlights. The daring dives and contortions allow him to glove the ball, but those plays end in throws -- mostly to first base. And someone has to catch them.

  • Bettis finds purpose in first camp after cancer
    Bettis, a right-handed pitcher determined to getting back to leading the rotation, does carry one aspect of his battle: the desire to help.
