When it comes to the outfield, the Rockies have a lot of options and the best part they all can do some damage. Many people are in love with the bullpen, but in my opinion the outfield is where it’s at.

Blackmon and Parra are the mainstays on the team as Desmond still has to prove last season’s low numbers were a fluke. David Dahl and Raimel Tapia are on track to be breakout stars, and they are vital pieces to an already jam-packed lineup.

Questions are still up in the air about Carlos Gonzalez. If he were to be signed, then someone would not appear on this roster. However, the Rockies seem very content with their current personnel. For now, I would say the Rockies will have Desmond in left, Blackmon in center, and Parra in right as their starting outfield.
