Rockies' Jairo Diaz: Touches upper-90s in spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz (elbow) pitched two-thirds of an inning in his first Cactus League appearance, giving up five runs on five hits and a walk.

The appearance is definitely a step in the right direction for the fireballer, and although the results are somewhat cringe-worthy, some positives can be taken away from the outing. Diaz's fastball touched 98.8 miles per hour, showing the high-octane delivery that has Rockies fans drooling. He also got the first two outs of the inning relatively quickly, one of them even being a strikeout. His rust became apparent afterward, however, as his inability to command his changeup and slider led to a home run and a premature exit from the contest. Diaz appears to be pretty healthy as of now, although he'll likely need some more work in game situations prior to being fully cleared for major league innings. His return to full-time work appears to still lie in early May.

Rockies' Jeff Hoffman: Shipped to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoffman was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on Thursday, The Denver Post reports.

The pitching prospect seemed like a good bet to crack the Rockies rotation, especially in light of recent injuries to Chris Rusin (oblique) and Chad Bettis (illness), but after serving up nine hits and walking two batters in his 5.2 spring innings, the Rockies opted to send Hoffman back to the minors for more seasoning. The 24-year-old struggled with command at times last season, most notably posting a 4.9 BB/9 in 31.1 big league innings, but given his prospect pedigree, it's likely that he'll get the call back to the majors once he's able to work on his mechanics and fill up the strike zone more consistently. This development likely puts German Marquez, Kyle Freeland, Antonio Senzatela, and Harrison Musgrave in better position to claim one of the final two rotation spots in Denver.

Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Competing for rotation spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeland is competing for one of the final two spots in the Rockies' rotation, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

He gave up one run on four hits and a walk with five strikeouts in five innings Wednesday, and now boasts a 2.25 ERA with 14 strikeouts in 16 innings this spring. Four of the Rockies' top young arms (Jeff Hoffman, German Marquez, Antonio Senzatela and Freeland) are competing for the final two spots in the rotation. Hoffman and Marquez are the favorites to start the year in the rotation, but Freeland's spring will not go unnoticed, and he figures to earn at least a handful of starts at some point this year.

Rockies' Alexi Amarista: Leaves after being plunked
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amarista exited Wednesday's spring game after he was hit by a pitch on his forearm, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

Amarista had his wrist checked out in the dugout afterwards, but the substitution primarily appeared to be precautionary, as it didn't appear to be overly serious. He should be considered day-to-day until the Rockies note otherwise.

Rockies' Rayan Gonzalez: Will need Tommy John surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez (elbow) will require season-ending Tommy John surgery, MLB.com's Thomas Harding reports.

The news is merely a formality, as it was fully expected the 26-year-old would go under the knife after he was revealed to have sustained ligament damage following his Cactus League appearance one week earlier. Gonzalez, a right-handed reliever, compiled a 3.12 ERA and 49:23 K:BB ratio over 52 innings with Double-A New Britain last season.
