AltiTwo: Rockies Spring Training Pitchers Preview



This week, Isaac and Logan take a deep dive into the pitchers on the expanded Rockies Spring Training roster. We give you six guys who will make an impact, talk about non-roster invitees and pick a top prospect that could make an impact in the majors this year. We also select a way-too-early 12-man pitching roster that they think will be on the Opening Day 25-man roster.

More from Rox Pile

There were a few questions to keep in mind during our conversation. Who will make more of an impact this year, Tyler Chatwood or Jordan Lyles? We’re split on the issue, but are open to compelling arguments with a bit of humor to convince us one way or the other. Will Eddie Butler and/or Tyler Matzek remain starters with the incoming of younger prospects down the line? Again, we’re split, but we’d love to hear your thoughts on the issue.

Plus, hear about Logan’s adventure getting back from work, my displeasure about going from the 80 degree heaven that is Los Angeles to the 20 degree weather in Washington DC and Logan making fun of me, as always, about something or other.

Feedback is always welcome!  Who are you pitchers you’re most interested in during Spring Training? Do you agree with Logan’s predictions or rightly side with mine?  Let us know in the comments below, email us at, or tweet us at @AltiTwo.

Next: Are the Rockies In-Game Promotions a Ploy?

Logan looks at the Colorado Rockies’ in-game promotions and comes to one shocking conclusion; the Rockies have tricked us into doing their dirty work. If you don’t think about it too much, the Rockies promotions all do one thing; maintain the field and the ballpark.
