Rockies pitcher Eddie Butler allowed just one earned run on five hits in five innings while striking out two and walking none in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Giants.

Butler is in the mix for the team's final rotation spot and did a fine job of making his case Wednesday. He threw 56 pitches Wednesday and allowed just three hits in his first four innings. Butler has posted a 2.63 ERA and 8:3 K:BB ratio in 13 2/3 innings this spring.

News
Rockies pitcher Christian Friedrich has hit his stride with his slider as he continues to build upon a strong performance from last season after being moved to the bullpen, MLB.com reports.

"I saw a real good slider, the slider we saw last September -- the one that disappears, especially to left-handed hitters," manager Walt Weiss said. "He's in a good place. Maybe the velocity is not quite what it was when we saw him in September. It's ticking up. But the slider is a swing-and-miss pitch."

Friedrich has surrendered just one earned run in six innings while striking out two batters and walking two.

"The hard thing that every pitcher does when they feel they've got the stuff is, they want to show everybody they've got the stuff," Friedrich said. "I've had games where I was teetering on the edge of, 'I feel really good tonight; let's see what comes out,' then there's a lack of execution. As a starter, some days the two-seamer was 87, 88 [mph]. Now it's coming out harder, 90 [or] 91."

News
The Rockies are looking more and more like they will have a third catching option on their Opening Day roster, reports the Denver Post.

Wilin Rosario, considered the third catcher, is expected to make the roster, but also provide depth at first base behind Justin Morneau.

"Honestly, the way that it looks like it's heading, is if we carry the two catchers in Hundley and McKenry, then Rosario lines up now as that half half-catcher who plays first base," manager Walt Weiss said Tuesday before the Rockies played the White Sox."

Weiss cited having Rosario and Michael McKenry as flexibility off the bench, especially on offense.

"This allows you to pinch-hit a catcher during a game because you are protected, which is huge," he said. "The way we design our roster, most of the time, is that we are carrying 13 pitchers — with eight guys in the bullpen. That leaves us short on the bench.

"If you have a four-man bench and you can’t use your catcher — because you are afraid to lose your backup catcher — then you have a three-man bench. So you are really short-handed. Having a guy who can go behind the plate allows you to pinch-hit a catcher."

News
Rockies starting pitcher prospect Jon Gray is making a strong push for the final spot in the team's rotation, posting a 2.08 ERA in five spring outings (two starts). However, if Gray is asked to spend more time in the minors, he appears to be OK with that decision.

"I want everything to happen at the right time," Gray said, per The Denver Post. "I wouldn't like to be the guy who gets rushed up and does bad and gets sent down. I'm really close to being ready. And maybe these last couple outings can decide if I'm ready."

News
Rockies outfielder Drew Stubbs has struck out eight times in his last three games entering Wednesday and 17 times this spring, but he believes he has discovered the issue at the plate, MLB.com reports.

"Up until a week ago or less than that, I was feeling really good at the plate," Stubbs said. "More recently, I'm going through a battle with my timing. I've been late a lot of times and it's causing me to not see the ball as well, and it's put me in a funk."

Stubbs has decided not to change his mechanics but rather rely on the awareness of the issue to correct the problem.

"The last few days I've had a lot of stuff going through my head, and that's where you can get yourself in trouble," Stubbs said. "You start having a lot of clutter. I'm trying to get to the root of it, which is timing. I was feeling way too good in my batting-practice work and my cage [work] before it started happening, so I know my swing is fine. If all the mechanics are working, it's got to be your timing."

Stubbs is 8 for 33 with two home runs and six walks this spring.

News
Rockies outfielder Brandon Barnes brought a brand-new swing to spring training that features a high leg kick as he looks to cut down the strikeouts and "be the best version of me," the Denver Post reports.

"I tried to refine who I am and what type of player I am in the box," Barnes said Thursday. "I'm not a guy who's going to hit 30 home runs. I know that. I'm the big guy who needs to be a pest, drive the ball into gaps, hit doubles, use my speed to my advantage, bunt, all those things."

Barnes lost 10 pounds this offseason as he looked to come to camp more athletic and less stiff in the batter's box.

"We have this tremendous athlete, and you see him in the outfield and it shows up daily," manager Walt Weiss said. "But you saw him in the box last season, and there was some stiffness to his approach. And I'm saying, 'Be that guy in the box.' It made sense to him."

Barnes indicated that he's committed to the new approach that pulls the focus away from home runs.

"I had to go back and do some soul-searching to figure out who I was," Barnes said. "I'm the guy who goes out and plays really hard."

Rockies pitcher David Hale is likely out of race for starting job to start the season, according to the Denver Post reports.

Hale, who was scratched from a Thursday start in the Cactus League because of a strained oblique muscle, has been shut down from baseball activities for at least two-to-three days before he resumes a pitching program.

"This is the worst possible time to have it happen," Hale said. "I have to do nothing to let it heal up."

Rockies manager Walt Weiss said Tuesday that pitcher Jorge De La Rosa (groin) is "pretty much shut down" aside from playing catch and that he expects the pitcher to begin the season on the disabled list, the Denver Post reports.

"It's starting to look that way," Weiss said.

It was reported Monday that an MRI on De La Rosa's injured groin revealed "nothing bad" after the pitcher was pulled from Friday's start due to a reaggravation of the injury. However, Weiss on Tuesday described the groin injury as "chronic."

With De La Rosa unlikely to be ready for the first trip throgh the rotation, the Rockies are looking for pitchers to line up behind Kyle Kendrick, Tyler Matzek and Jordan Lyles.

Rockies pitcher Jordan Lyles allowed five unearned runs on two hits and two walks in four innings in Tuesday's 7-6 win over the White Sox.

Lyles ran into trouble in his fourth and final inning but escaping the outing without having any runs charged to his ERA, which has falled to 0.60 through 15 spring innings. He threw 55 pitches after coming into the start hoping to raise his pitch count to 70, the Denver Post reports.

"I feel good," Lyles said. "I think where I’m at now is strides ahead of where I was last year at this time. I can say that with confidence. A lot of that has to do with my changeup, and I was working on my curveball today. I threw some good ones and some bad ones."

Lyles is locked into a rotation spot to start the season.

News
Justin Morneau won the NL batting title (.319) in his first year with the Rockies in 2014 and as the start of the 2015 season nears, the 33-year-old first baseman believes he has even more left in the tank now that his health issues are behind him.

"I feel good. I feel strong," he said, per The Denver Post. "My swing feels consistent, and I feel like I can wait for the pitch I want. I feel like I am going up there with the best version of myself, as opposed to somebody who's just patched together."

Morneau is not the only person expecting lofty expectations in 2015. Manager Walt Weiss predicts a banner year from Morneau, who has averaged 118 games over the last six seasons.

"Justin's showing no signs of age," Weiss said Wednesday. "He's not as old as maybe some people think he is. He missed some time there for a while, and missed some time coming back, so I think some people think he's 40 years old. He's not. Plus, he's in great shape."
