Fans should believe in the rotation, believe in the bullpen and most importantly believe in Black. Colorado will be playing baseball well into October again in 2017..
Bud Black has been impressed with what he has seen both out of the present and future of the Rockies organization.
First basemen Ian Desmond will undergo surgery to repair the 2nd metacarpal in his left hand, according to Thomas Harding of MLB.com.
Newly acquired first baseman Ian Desmond was struck by an errant pitch from Reds right-hander Rookie Davis, fracturing a bone in Desmond's left hand.
"At least it's spring; you never like to see these things at any time, but he'll bounce back from this," Rockies manager Bud Black said.
"The last couple of years have been pretty special, but I want to continue to have those special years," Arenado told Les Shapiro of Mile High Sports Radio.
Baseball is back. Sort of. The Colorado Rockies began spring training on a high note Saturday by beating the Arizona Diamondbacks 8-4 at Salt River Fields.
Desmond, not a first baseman by trade, is naturally a shortstop. Last year he played left field and center field for the Texas Rangers, hitting .285.
With a bolstered bullpen and Bud Black in the fold, it's not such a wild idea to think that the Rockies will contend in the NL West.
Ian Desmond is expected to start at first for the Rockies next season; but the retention of Reynolds does open up some interesting possibilities.
