Young among Rockies' latest cutsNews: The Rockies optioned second baseman Eric O. Young Jr. to Triple-A Colorado Springs and reassigned catcher Paul Phillips, outfielders Jay Payton, Cole Garner and Matt J. Miller and infielders Omar Quintanilla and Michael Paulk to minor league camp Tuesday. Analysis: Young is a burner who could impact deeper Rotisserie leagues with his steals potential down the road. These other players are nothing more than organizational depth at this point. Ignore them in all Fantasy leagues on Draft Day.
Rockies announce more spring invitesNews: The Rockies have announced the following non-roster invitations to spring training: pitchers Christian Friedrich, Craig Baker, Andrew Graham, Andrew Johnston and Juan Rincon; catchers Jordan Pacheco and Wilin Rosario; infielders Jonathan Herrera, Darin Holcomb, Jeff Kindel, Michael Paulk and Omar Quintanilla; and outfielders Chris Frey, Cole Garner and Matt J. Miller. Analysis: Friedrich is an elite pitching prospect, while Rosario is an intriguing catcher prospect and the outfielders have some long-term potential, too. We don't expect any of these players to make the team out of spring training at this point.
