Rockies' Raimel Tapia: Appears to be destined for minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia seems to be fifth on the outfield depth chart, meaning he'll likely have to begin the 2017 season in the minors, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

Charlie Blackmon and Carlos Gonzalez seem to be cemented into center and right field, respectively, leaving left field open for competition. However, fellow prospect David Dahl and veteran Gerardo Parra seem to be the leading candidates for the position, leaving Tapia out of the picture for the time being. As manager Bud Black acknowledged himself, though, lots of things can happen during spring training, so if injuries strike any of the projected major leaguers or if Tapia exceeds expectations this spring, he would likely be the first in line to garner a promotion to the major league squad. Regardless of where he starts, his hitting prowess and prospect shine should land him a job in Denver before the end of the season.

Rockies' Chris Rusin: Stands good chance of making roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rusin has a leg up on other competitors for spots in the Rockies bullpen since he is out of minor league options, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

The 30-year-old lefty was a largely underrated member of the Rockies pitching staff last year, switching between starting and relieving all season en route to posting a 3.74 ERA and 1.25 WHIP, both career bests. Rusin still isn't a lock to break camp with the big league squad, but given his recent success, lack of options, and left-handedness, he seems like a good bet to be present when Opening Day rolls around. That being said, it's tough to see him making much noise in the fantasy realm, as he doesn't strike out nearly enough batters to be worth anything as a reliever and doesn't start enough games to be anything more than a streaming option when he lands a start away from Coors Field.

Rockies' Dustin Garneau: Likely to start season in minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garneau is a long-shot to make the Opening Day roster for the Rockies, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

Manager Bud Black stated that top prospect Tom Murphy and incumbent catcher Tony Wolters will enter the season with "shared duties" behind the plate, seemingly leaving Garneau out of the picture entirely. That being said, the 29-year-old is likely the next in line for major league innings if either Murphy or Wolters go down with an injury, although it will likely be in a backup role given his inability to hit major league pitching during two stints with Colorado.

Rockies' Jordan Patterson: On the outside looking in for roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Patterson faces an uphill climb to garnering a major league roster spot out of spring training, Nick Groke of the Denver Post reports.

Manager Bud Black's initial organizational depth chart has Patterson behind both non-roster invitee Mark Reynolds and outfielder Gerardo Parra in the first base pecking order. Patterson does have some prospect shine and the ability to play the outfield, although that's hardly a differentiating factor from Parra, especially given the fact that both of them hit left-handed. With this news, it seems like the 25-year-old is destined to start another season at Triple-A, although his strong performance following a September callup (8-for-18 with a double and two RBI) and a history of decent power could help him find his way back to Denver later in the season.

Rockies' Mark Reynolds: Healthy ahead of 2017
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Reynolds (hand) took live batting practice off Rockies pitchers Tuesday and is healthy heading into spring training, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

Reynolds broke his hand after being hit by a pitch in mid-September, but he seems to be back to full health after an offseason of rest. Barring any extraneous circumstances, the veteran seems to be in line to compete for a job to back up Ian Desmond at first base. Harding also commented that Reynolds will work out at third base while Nolan Arenado is playing at the World Baseball Classic while practicing a bit at the outfield corners, which should help him create a stronger case for a major league roster spot.
