Rockies' Tyler Anderson: To start Cactus League opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harding will take the mound in the Rockies' Cactus League opener on Saturday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports

Although he is only expected to pitch around two innings, Anderson will be looking to get off to nice start as he prepares for his second big league season. Last spring, the 27-year-old suffered an oblique injury that kept him out all the way until June, so staying healthy will be a major key in his start against the Diamondbacks. Assuming Anderson remains injury-free throughout this month, he'll have a solid chance at locking down a spot in Colorado's starting rotation to begin the year.

Rockies' Jairo Diaz: Throws first live bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz (elbow) threw a bullpen session Friday, his first since undergoing Tommy John surgery this offseason, Nick Groke of The Denver Post reports.

Diaz progressed steadily through rehab this winter, and bullpen coach Darren Holmes noted the young reliever "looks healthy." The 25-year-old started strong in the Rockies' bullpen last year, posting a 2.37 ERA over 21 games before being sidelined with an elbow injury. Diaz is on pace for a return closer to May, but this is a positive step on the road back.

Rockies' DJ LeMahieu: Expected to hit near top of order
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rockies manager Bud Black said he'll likely keep LeMahieu near the top of the lineup, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

In this case, the 2016 NL batting champion again will occupy the two-hole most often behind Charlie Blackmon. LeMahieu crossed the plate 104 times last year, which fueled his fantasy value just as much as the .348 batting average, and keeping a spot near the top increases the odds he'll come close to scoring that much again in this lethal lineup. This news doesn't make Trevor Story owners happy. He'd likely bat seventh with LeMahieu at No. 2.

Rockies' Chad Bettis: Throws healthy bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bettis, who has been declared cancer-free, threw a healthy bullpen session Wednesday, Nick Groke of the Denver Post reports.

This also came with the news that he was given a healthy prognosis after blood tests and a tumor marker assured doctors that he remains free of cancer. After he was cleared, he slid back into a near-regular offseason throwing program and should be ready for the start of the season. He'll still require blood work every three-to-six months to assure that the cancer hasn't resurfaces, but he'll likely assume his role in the Rockies' rotation after leading the team with 14 wins last season.

Rockies' Jordan Lyles: Lack of options benefits chances of making team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lyles has a good chance of making the Opening Day roster due to the fact that he's out of minor league options, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

Lyles broke camp last season with a rotation spot in hand, but he was simply atrocious in five starts (8.55 ERA, 2.05 WHIP). However, the right-hander picked things up after he rejoined the major league squad as a long reliever in June, posting an improved 4.42 ERA and 1.45 WHIP. He doesn't strike out enough batters to warrant much excitement if he does make the team as a reliever, but a roster spot is better than being designated for assignment and could also lead to a few spot starts over the course of the year.
