Rockies' Brandon Barnes displays new swing this spring
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

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' Christian Friedrich impressing with slider
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

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."

Rockies' Weiss expecting great year from Justin Morneau
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

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."

Rockies' Weiss: Rafael Betancourt 'is amazing'
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Rockies pitcher Rafael Betancourt made his second appearance Wednesday since suffering a bruised jaw on a comebacker, allowing one hit and one walk in one scoreless inning while striking out two.

"Yeah, Rafi, Rafi is amazing," manager Walt Weiss said after the outing, per MLB.com. "He still has that pinpoint command. He can clip the corners with everything he throws. He's still very effective."

Betancourt is in camp as a nonroster invitee and looking to win a spot in the rotation, but Weiss wouldn't say whether the veteran has a leg up in the competition.

"He's still battling for a spot," Weiss said.

"I don't like to see it like that," Betancourt said. "Everyone here has a chance to make this team. But those kind of things are coming from the front office, the coaches, the manager. They're the ones who are going to make those decisions. For me, I just need to keep working hard. It's always been that way for me."

Betancourt has surrendered just one earned run in 5 2/3 spring innings while striking out eight and walking one.
