Rockies bolster bullpen, try for first back-to-back playoff appearances

Question mark remains at first base
Colorado Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado, left, and right fielder Carlos Gonzalez celebrate with teammates after securing a National League Wild Card berth last season. The Rockies are counting on big seasons from Arenado and center fielder Charlie Blackmon along with bounce-back campaigns from other position players to make a run at back-to-back playoff appearances for the first time in team history.
The Colorado Rockies have beefed up their bullpen via free agency in the off-season to help out relief pitcher Jake McGee.
Colorado Rockies left fielder David Dahl follows through with his swing while batting against the Texas Rangers. The Rockies are counting on Dahl, who was sidelined by injury during the 2017 season, to return to the team’s outfield to help in the team’s run at back-to-back playoff appearances for the first time in the Rockies’ history.
Colorado Rockies manager Bud Black, right, makes a point to starting pitcher Antonio Senzatela, not shown, as first base coach Tony Diaz, left, looks. Black and the Rockies hierarchy are counting on big seasons from the team’s starting rotation as well as several position players to make a run at back-to-back playoff appearances for the first time in team history.
The Colorado Rockies are counting on a big season from Charlie Blackmon as well as bounce-back campaigns from other position players in 2018.
