However, manager Walt Weiss is happy with Chacin's progress this offseason.
"He's doing great. He's been throwing and working out really hard. He's had a really good offseason," Weiss said to The Denver Post.
Teammate and pitcher Jorge De La Rosa thinks 2015 will be much kinder to Chacin.
"He surprised me a lot," De La Rosa said. "He was playing catch with me every day (in Scottsdale, Ariz.), and his arm looks really good. His ball really had some life, and he's lost some weight. I think he's getting stronger. He's going to have a good year."
Tulowitzki only appeared in 91 games during the 2014 season and said his main goal for 2015 is to stay on the field.
"I've heard that I'm injury-prone. I've heard that I'm getting older. I like it," he said. "That stuff fuels me. It makes my workouts better. It makes me want it that much more. I just want to prove that I can do it. For so long, I've worked so hard to try to stay on the field. That's what keeps driving me - to stay on the field, help this team win and try to solidify myself as the best player in the game."
He added that he wants to play between 140 and 160 games, but he knows it will be a challenge as he gets older.
"It's been a battle for me, no doubt," Tulowitzki said. "I do everything I possibly can to prepare for the season and make myself healthy."
Despite his struggles to close games in 2014,
"You have to learn lessons from struggles," Bridich said.
In 2014, Brothers blew all six of his save opportunities and finished the season with a 5.59 ERA. However, Bridich said the 2014 season was not a typical year for Brothers.
"We're close to seeing the real Rex Brothers," Bridich said.
"CarGo is in town right now," said Bridich, who added that Gonzalez's left index finger, where a benign tumor was removed last year, also has healed and the outfielder is throwing. "He's going through the routine check-ins, and he's exactly on schedule. We're hopeful to get him on the field sometime soon. Obviously, it's winter here, so it's tough."
