Daniel Descalso brings versatility, playoff experience to Rockies
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Rockies infielder Daniel Descalso is ready to fill the role of versatile veteran who can play second base, third base or shortstop as needed, the Denver Post reports.

"I'll be ready for whatever comes my way," Descalso said Monday. "It's been a while since I've played just one position for any length of time, so I've worked hard to reach a comfort level at all three spots. I have an idea of what it takes to stay sharp."

Another factor that piqued the interest of the Rockies this offseason was his postseason experience, as he has played in 44 postseason games and won one championship.

"All of that factored in quite a bit," manager Walt Weiss said. "I think we sometimes underestimate the value of that — guys that have played in big games, pennant races, and have won a World Series. Those types of players are valuable, and that's a big reason why we brought Danny in here."

Descalso has made 110 starts at second base, 91 at third base and 88 at shortstop in his five-year career, seeing at least 100 appearances at all three poitions. He hit .242/.333/.311 in 161 at-bats last year with the Cardinals.

Rockies' Weiss: DJ LeMahieu is going to get better offensively
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Rockies second baseman DJ LeMahieu is hoping the offseason work he put in to increase his speed will pay dividends on offense this season, particularly legging out more extra-base hits, per MLB.com.

"We were doing sprints early in the offseason and by February I was much, much faster," LeMahieu said. "We'll see how that translates, but I accomplished my goal."

Rockies manager Walt Weiss is expecting LeMahieu to improve offensively.

"He's a guy that's going to get better and better offensively," Weiss said. "I've talked about his feel for the game and that's going to play into his offense. You're going to see his on-base [.314 career] creep up. He's going to slug more than he has [.361 career] -- not homers, but there are doubles there."

Rockies' Tulowitzki, Gonzalez run bases Monday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and outfielder Carlos Gonzalez ran the bases Monday morning, the Denver Post reports.

Tulowitzki is returning from August hip surgery, while Gonzalez is working his way back from August knee surgery. Manager Walt Weiss pointed out Saturday that the ability to run the bases is a big step in the recovery of both players.

"It's not [far off], relatively speaking," Weiss said when asked when the two would play in games, per MLB.com. "I don't want to put a time frame on it, but put it this way: It's going to happen sooner than I probably thought this winter."

Rockies' Jhoulys Chacin faces hitters for first time Saturday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Rockies pitcher Jhoulys Chacin is feeling good about his health so far in camp. Good enough, in fact, that the 27-year-old faced hitters Saturday for the first time this spring.

Sunday, Chacin said he was without pain.

"Today I feel normal -- not like before," Chacin said. "I threw everything and felt good. I need to get into games to really feel back to normal, like it did two years ago [14-10 with a 3.47 ERA in 31 starts]. I know I've got a long way to go. I don't know what my velocity was, but it'll come up a little."

Chacin injured his rotator cuff in the middle of last season, forcing him out of action for nearly half the season.
