by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Rockies starting pitcher Jorge De La Rosa will miss his spring debut Saturday against the Cubs due to left groin tightness, per The Denver Post.

He plans to play catch Friday and throw a bullpen Saturday. De La Rosa also expects to be ready for his next turn through the rotation.

The left-handed pitcher has been one of the Rockies' best pitchers the last two seasons. He is 30-17 with a 3.81 ERA since 2013.

Rockies' Charlie Blackmon hoping for more consistency
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon is hoping for more consistency in 2015, according to the Denver Post

Blackmon had a breakout season in 2014, but admits it's hard to be on every single game. "Last year, I swung the bat really well at certain times," he said. "But you go through a lot of ups and downs over 162 games, and that was a learning experience. I think that's going to help me this year."

Blackmon said his strong start made him a target for other teams, and that may have contributed to a slight slump during the season. Blackmon added that he's hoping to hit the ball to all fields this season.

Manager Walt Weiss is hoping Blackmon can deliver more of the same. "I don't know if he necessarily has to have an encore. I'm thinking more of the same," Weiss said. "I think Charlie would say that he wants to be more consistent."

The 28-year-old Blackmon hit .288/.335/.440 over 593 at-bats last year.

Rockies' Jhoulys Chacin (shoulder) 'felt very good' in spring debut
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Rockies pitcher Jhoulys Chacin made his spring debut Thursday, and though he surrendered two earned runs in 1 2/3 innings, he "felt very good" with the outing, the Denver Post reports.

"I felt very good, and I hope I can keep going like this all year," Chacin said. "I threw a lot of changeups and sliders today because that’s what I’ve been working on. I have been working on the slider because that’s my strikeout pitch."

Chacin was making his first appearance in a game since June 28 after missing much of the 2014 season due to a shoulder injury. Manager Walt Weiss said that the pitcher was throwing with less effort than he did last spring.

"We are trying to build him back up this spring," Weiss said. "The main thing is that he’s healthy and able to bounce back. There is no reason to think he’s not going to be fine."

Chacin went 1-7 with a 5.40 ERA and 42:28 K:BB ratio in 63 1/3 innings over 11 starts last season.

Rockies' Brandon Barnes looking to increase speed
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Rockies outfielder Brandon Barnes reported to camp less bulky in an effort to increased his speed, while also working on bunting and running the bases, MLB.com reports.

Barnes is preparing as a player who is confident with his abilities, manager Walt Weiss said.

"He does feel like he belongs; we've had some good conversations already this spring," Weiss said. "I can sense that his confidence level is higher than he was a year ago. His attitude is infectious. He brings a lot of energy and toughness to our club that's very valuable. The other players feed off of it."

Barnes indicated that he's looking to be a smarter hitter this year and has turned to hitting coach Blake Doyle, shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and outfielders Carlos Gonzalez and Corey Dickerson for advice.

The goal is finding a "rock-solid approach," Barnes said. "I have to buy into that."

Barnes hit .257/.293/.425 with eight home runs, 27 RBI and five stolen bases in his first season with the Rockies in 2014.
