Rockies Vs. Giants: Storm Expected, Matt Reynolds To Start In Place Of Jason Hammel

The Colorado Rockies planned on Jason Hammel starting today's game against the San Francisco Giants, but due to an expected storm reliever Matt Reynolds will take the mound instead. Reynolds will pitch as if he is working a regular relief appearance. He will be followed by Matt Belisle, Rafael Betancourt and Rex Brothers.

Jason Hammel will pitch in a minor league game on Monday afternoon.

Here is the lineup for today's game (if it is played):

CF Dexter Fowler
RF Seth Smith
LF Carlos Gonzalez
SS Troy Tulowitzki
1B Todd Helton
2B Jose Lopez
3B Ian Stewart
C Chris Iannetta
P M. Reynolds

Minus the pitcher, this lineup for be a safe bet for the Opening Day lineup. Ian Stewart is no longer held back by injury, meaning Ty Wigginton wouldn't be necessary for the start. Jonathan Herrera may make Jose Lopez sweat out the battle at second, so that spot in the lineup and on the diamond could change.

Game time is scheduled for 2:05 p.m. Mountain.
