Rockies' Carlos Estevez: Not guaranteed 25-man roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Estevez is not a lock for a spot in the Rockies bullpen to start the season, Nick Groke of the Denver Post reports.

The young reliever spent a chunk of the summer as Colorado's closer, converting 11 of 18 save opportunities. However, his 5.24 ERA left much to be desired, and given the multitude of veteran options brought in to bolster the bullpen, Estevez is on the fringe of the major league roster. It seems most likely that the 24-year-old will start the year at Triple-A Albuquerque and shuttle up to the big leagues as needed.

Rockies' Ian Desmond: Working hard on defense at first base
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Desmond has worked extensively on learning his new position (first base) since signing a five-year, $70 million contract with the Rockies this offseason, MLB.com's Thomas Harding reports.

He has worked at the position this offseason, both at his home near Sarasota, Fla., and in special sessions with manager Bud Black, coach Ron Gideon, third-base coach Stu Cole and first-base coach Tony Diaz. While the Rockies' signing of Desmond with the intention of having him move down the defensive spectrum to first base has been largely criticized by analysts, the move to Colorado is excellent for his fantasy value, at least as long as he retains his outfield eligibility in 2017.

Rockies' Charlie Blackmon: Will lead off again in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Blackmon will serve as the Rockies' leadoff hitter this season, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

New manager Bud Black will not shake things up at the top of the order in 2017, as Blackmon will set the table once again for Colorado. Out of the leadoff spot last season, Blackmon slashed .325/.380/.555 with 110 runs and 82 RBI.

Rockies' Tony Wolters: Set to share catching duties
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rockies manager Bud Black said that Wolters and Tom Murphy will have "shared duties" behind the plate in 2017, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

Although this phrasing seems to suggest a platoon, Black was insistent that it won't be a strict platoon, and that he'll instead evaluate the offensive and defensive performance of both catchers before making a lineup decision. The skipper also added that it's unrealistic to expect either catcher to amass a 130-game season given their inexperience in the big leagues, so fantasy owners should expect fairly even timeshare between Wolters and Murphy throughout the course of the upcoming campaign.

Rockies' Tom Murphy: In line to share catching duties
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rockies manager Bud Black said that Murphy and Tony Wolters will have "shared duties" behind the plate in 2017, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

Murphy certainly has more offensive upside than Wolters, but Black was insistent that both offense and defense would play a big role in who would play on a given day. Black also added that it's unrealistic to expect either catcher to put together a 130-game season, so fantasy owners should expect a fairly flexible timeshare behind the plate heading into 2017, which may decrease both backstops' values.
