Notes of interest: The Rockies get 14 home games and 12 road games in their 26-game road schedule for June of 2016. They’ll also get four off days in the month, including two in the same week thanks to a two-game series with the New York Yankees and Monday and Thursday off days around it.

(Also, my birthday is June 5, and the Rockies play in San Diego the 3rd through the 5th, and in L.A. the 6th through the 8th. Woo hoo!!)

Key series: Obviously, the key here is the Rockies’ June 27-29 series against the Blue Jays. The series marks Troy Tulowitzki’s return to Denver, and will certainly be the series of the year as far as most Colorado Rockies fans are concerned.

Next: July: interleague and the Braves
