Colorado Rockies: 3 things to know on March 28
By JD Jensen
The Colorado Rockies continue to get closer and closer to opening day with plenty of questions that need to be asked. Here’s three things you need to know in March 28.
Story continues to work on arm
Trevor Story can easily become one of the biggest powerhouses in all of baseball. He hit 27 long bombs in 2016. He also plays in Coors Field, an excellent spot for becoming a power hitter. Story also claims to be working on his arm. In an interview with MLB.com, Story says “[throwing] is just something you need to put in your routine”. Story is already one of the most promising players in baseball today. Who knows where his hard work ethic can take him in the future.

Chatwood making push for ace spot
After one of the most dominant performances in the Rockies spring training this year, Tyler Chatwood continues to impress the coaching staff and fans. He logged six near-perfect innings while striking out seven and only allowing one run. After giving up one run in the first, he became a shutdown force the Padres could not handle. “He was efficient and in command” MLB.com says, as Chatwood threw about 62 percent strikes in 98 pitches. It was a stellar performance that we all like to see this close to the beginning of the regular season.
The Greg Holland Test
Greg Holland has been- to say the least- an expirement. The Rockies picked him up in free agency for a cheap contract this past offseason. He was a superstar reliever for the Royals before having to get Tommy John surgery early last year. MLB.com says when he pitches tomorrow, it will be the first time in three days.

However, they plan to throw him back-to-back nights now. It will be he first time through all of Spring Training. Holland truly can be a huge success, or a massive failure. These next two days could be an indicator of which one will happen.
