Christian Friedrich has no restrictions
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Rockies starting pitcher Christian Friedrich, who missed most of last season due to a back injury, is eager to start Monday's spring game against the Diamondbacks.

"I’m throwing everything now," Friedrich said, per The Denver Post. "Some of the pitches I threw (Tuesday in live batting practice) felt really good. I was really able to let them go. I’ve had no issues with the back. There are no brakes being put on me, so whatever I can handle, I can handle."

With the news Jhoulys Chacin (shoulder) might not be ready for opening day, there could be two spots in the rotation up for grabs this spring. Friedrich believes he is far enough along in his recovery to compete for a rotation job, but he knows the decision isn't up to him.

"I’ve been around this team long enough to know that we are going to need seven our eight guys through the course of our season," Friedrich said. "So you don’t look at just those five spots."

Christian Friedrich in mix for spot in Rockies' rotation?
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

If Rockies starting pitcher Jhoulys Chacin is out an extended period of time due to a shoulder injury, Patrick Saunders of the The Denver Post wrote Tuesday to "keep an eye" on starting pitcher Christian Friedrich, who missed most of last season due to a back injury.

Saunders said Friedrich has pitched well early in camp and the left-handed pitcher said "he feels strong." 

Though, the early indications this spring is that the Rockies would like Friedrich to re-establish himself in the minors before joining the major-league rotation. However, Chacin's injury could change the team's opening day rotation plans.

Owner indicates Christian Friedrich is ticketed for minors
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Rockies chairman and CEO Dick Monfort was asked on Twitter Tuesday what are the chances starting pitcher Christian Friedrich returns to the rotation this season.

However, Monfort indicated Friedrich, who missed most of last season due to a back injury, will have to re-establish himself in the minors before being recalled.

"Friedrich is coming along," Monfort responded. "His back is good. He's a competitive kid. (He will) have to build strength in minors but could be a factor."

Back injury forces Christian Friedrich to alter delivery
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Rockies starting pitcher Christian Friedrich, who was limited to four starts at Triple-A last season because of back problems, told The Denver Post he is throwing bullpen sessions.

"So far, no setbacks," Rockies pitching coach Jim Wright said. "Most of all, first of all, we want him to be healthy.

"Christian has the potential to be a premier left-hander. He's a great athlete. I know it's killed him not to throw. It was never a question if he had the stuff. We have high hopes."

Friedrich added he had to adjust his mechanics to compensate for the back injury, which began to bother him in the summer of 2012 during his first stint in the majors.

"I didn't realize I was doing it at the time, but I started throwing across my body, and all of the force was going through my back instead of toward the plate," he said. "So I think the problem in my right leg was a huge problem, not being able to finish toward the target. I think that's what caused it."
