After a brief excursion to Peoria for a game with the San Diego Padres, the Colorado Rockies are back at Salt River Fields to host the San Francisco Giants, the 2010 World Series winner. This game would have had a nice pitching match-up between Jorge De La Rosa and Matt Cain, but the latter underwent an MRI that showed inflammation of the right elbow. Ryan Vogelsong will start in his place.
Following De La Rosa in the game will be Felipe Paulino, Huston Street, Sean White, Matt Belisle, Cory Riordan and Rex Brothers. Brothers could be a potential mid-season call-up for the bullpen. He has a fastball-slider combo that should be devastating to opposing batters.
The Rockies lost their first game of spring training on Wednesday in 7-3 game against the Padres to go 3-1, while the Giants are 4-2 so far.
