Indiana Vs. Rockies: Ubaldo Jimenez Faces Colorado In Cactus League Play

The Colorado Rockies will see a familiar face on the mound in Sunday's Cactus League game against the Cleveland Indians when they bat against Ubaldo Jimenez. The former Rockies ace moved to Cleveland right before the MLB Trade Deadline, giving the Rockies Drew Pomeranz, Alex White and two others in return.

While Pomeranz has won a spot in the Rockies' rotation, Jimenez has struggled this spring with a 1-4 record and a 6.27 ERA in nearly 19 innings. He's struck out just 13 batters while walking 10. His velocity has stayed in the low-90s that he threw last season.

The Rockies will counter with Jeremy Guthrie, this year's Opening Day starter. In his previous spring start, Guthrie allowed four runs on 10 hits in six innings. This will be his final tuneup before his April 6 start against the Houston Astros, marking the start of the Rockies' 2012 regular season.

Here is the Rockies' lineup for Sunday:

2B Marco Scutaro
CF Tyler Colvin
LF Carlos Gonzalez
SS Troy Tulowitzki
1B Todd Helton
DH Jason Giambi
RF Michael Cuddyer
C Ramon Hernandez
3B Chris Nelson
P Jeremy Guthrie
