Saturday Rockpile: Making the Rockies’ rotation is not an easy task

Rockies news and links for March 16, 2019 Inbox: Who will start the season in the rotation? | Rockies.comHeading into spring training, the Colorado Rockies were planning on using a starting rotation consisting of Kyle Freeland, German Márquez, Tyler Anderson, Jon Gray and Chad Bettis. A few weeks into spring training, the club is sticking with this plan, says Thomas Harding of MLB.com. It’s not that the young hurlers on the outside looking in aren’t trying to push the door down. Antonio Senzatela has absolutely nothing left to prove in the minor leagues and has had a very good spring....

Brewers shutout Rockies, 1-0

Brewers shutout Rockies, 1-0

Solid pitching and a Saladino RBI double lift the Brew Crew to their fourth win of the spring The Milwaukee Brewers traveled from Maryvale to Scottsdale to play the Colorado Rockies. Chad Bettis started for the Rockies and Corbin Burnes took the mound for the Brew Crew to start the game. Both teams started many of the players that will be starting for them on a daily basis in 2019. The first six innings offered very little in the way of offense. Since both teams played so many regulars, this suggests that the pitching was quite good. Burnes threw three scoreless innings, giving up no runs...
