Reds 6, Rockies 4 (9 innings) Monday at Salt River Fields On the mound: Rockies starting lefty Kyle Freeland impressed in his first start of spring training with three scoreless innings. But Ryan Castellani was dreadful in relief, throwing 15 consecutive balls upon his arrival as the Rockies fell into a 3-0 hole. Southpaw Lucas Gilbreath allowed a run in the fourth and right-hander Heath Holder gave up two runs in the eighth.

The two will likely be part of a catching duo (or trio, as the Rockies have had in years past), but which one will be the true starter?

Hampson seems to be the first focus at CF Before Kevin Pillar was acquired at the trade deadline last year, Garrett Hampson played 20 of his 23 starts as an outfielder. Once Pillar came into the picture, he only played centerfield twice for the rest of the season — neither for a full game. Now with Pillar in New York, Hampson once again appears to be the focus at centerfield.

Giolito allowed no hits and struck out two, while Márquez allowed just three hits (Tim Anderson, Zack Collins, and Leury García). Nothing too exciting was happening in the game — until Yoán Moncada came along. Although it was risky for a spring training game, Moncada made an outstanding catch, diving over the tarp in foul territory.

As we officially wrap up the first week of spring training, the Sox are looking to close the week off with a win after their strong offensive performance and 7-0 win yesterday. The team will be back at Camelback Ranch today and facing the Colorado Rockies, a team that the Sox honestly haven’t seen in a while. It seems like the perfect opportunity to try and grab a win with Lucas Giolito on the mound starting for the Sox.

Cons: The walks are a little high, but even that’s a reach when considering he strikes out enough batters to make up for it. Bard just has to show that he can do it again. Ben Bowden Pros: Bowden has been dominant for the entirety of his pro career.

Colorado has turned the cherished memories of Galarraga and Helton into a money pit, with Bridich unable to bring anything resembling stability to first base during his six seasons as architect of this baseball team. The arrogance of Bridich — a Harvard alum, as you might have heard — has never been so evident and counterproductive to Rockies success than his approach at first base.

I’ve been racking my brain trying to figure out the 2021 Rockies. I’m still trying. A day after the Nolan Arenado trade, owner Dick Monfort famously (or infamously) said: “We have an extremely talented team.

Rodríguez allowed several hits against a handful of Dodger starters on Monday, and returns to the mound today for spring start number two. Castellani started his Cactus League campaign on Wednesday with a hit batter, a walk and a double, and while three Rockies errors in the first two innings did him little favors, four of his seven runs allowed were earned. He may work out of the bullpen in his next outing, as several of the Rockies’ main starters will make their spring debuts next week.

It was a big day for the Hilliard family as Jim, who was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s Disease (also known as ALS) in early 2018 just after retiring from a 35-year career as an orthopedic surgeon, was able to watch his son play as the starting left fielder for the Rockies. Little did the world know that at that time, Sam’s mom, Tamara, was already at work behind the scenes as an architect for MLB’s newest special day, Lou Gehrig Day, which will make its debut on June 2.

Here’s a shortlist of three billionaire candidates to buy the Rockies should the team ever go up for sale. Last year, Forbes valued the franchise at $1.275 billion. Phil Anschutz (net worth of $10.1 billion as of this week, per Forbes) is the richest Coloradan who built his fortune across multiple industries.

I definitely need to continue to pick Story’s and Hampson’s and other baserunners’ brains about what they look for. I definitely want to challenge myself on the basepaths this year and get some bags, because I know how much that helps the team. Twenty stolen bases is a lofty goal for Rodgers.
