2012 Rockies Spring Training: Colorado Cuts 4 More Players, Roster At 44

Troy Renck of The Denver Post is reporting that the Colorado Rockies have made some additional cuts on Monday:

Infielder DJ LeMahieu, a former Chicago Cubs prospect, come over to the Rockies in the trade that sent 3B Ian Stewart and RHP Casey Weathers to the Cubs in exchange for OF Tyler Colvin and LeMahieu. Reaching the majors for the first time as a 22-year-old, LeMahieu played in 37 games for the 2011 season and hit .250/.262/.283 through 62 plate appearances.

SP Christian Friedrich has been consistently ranked as one of the team's top prospects over the last few years, and should start the season at Triple-A in 2011. He turns 24 in July.
