Colorado will go where the offense takes it this season. The Rockies have Jon Gray followed by a bunch of young arms that will probably average out a whole bunch of innings as a 4/5 starter. The bullpen looks ok, though.
But both the infield and outfield are full of capable bats. Carlos Gonzalez is eligible for a bounce-back after his horrible season in 2017. If what we saw last season is simply future reality, young guys are ready behind him.
The Dodgers will be the best team in the NL West again this season. So that leaves Colorado competing for the two playoff spots in the wild card with teams like The Giants, Brewers, Cardinals, and the team it plays against to open the season: the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Arizona beat the Rockies in the Wild Card Game, at Chase Field, last season before getting swept out of the divisional round of the playoffs by the Dodgers.
That team had JD Martinez for 60 games and he hit 29 home runs. The front office made a legitimate bid to bring him back but was out-bid by the Red Sox. Instead, it traded for Steven Souza from Tampa Bay.
Souza did get hurt in Spring Training and won’t be back until May, perhaps, but when he does, he’s a well-rounded player who gets on base, has some pop, can run and plays good defense in the corner. Most importantly, he’s cheaper than what Arizona would have spent on Martinez, which leaves the finances more flexible, not only this season but in the future to potentially re-sign AJ Pollock next off-season or Paul Goldschmidt the year after that.
The D’Backs also put a humidor into their ballpark. It should restrict flight on the ball and make Chase Field more of a pitcher’s park, but there isn’t any data available yet.
