According to Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post, the Colorado Rockies made 12 cuts Thursday afternoon:
Right-handed pitchers (5): Stephen Dodson, Joe Gardner, Mike Ekstrom, Chad Bettis, Dustin Molleken.
Left-handed pitcher (1): Edwar Cabrera.
Catchers (2): Lars Davis and Matt McBride.
Infielders (2): Tommy Field and Ben Paulsen.
Outfielders (2): Jamie Hoffman and Kent Matthes.
The Rockies roster now stands at 48, according to Saunders. The Rockies still have question marks surrounding several of there positions, including their third base position, which means some position battles could extend late into Spring training.
Colorado has until April 6, when they open the season at Houston, to make their final decisions as to who will start and who will sit.
