4/24/2018 DETROIT  
COLORADO: 2017 87-75, third place, lost to Arizona in wild-card game
MANAGER Bud Black (second season)
ADDITIONS: RHP Wade Davis, RHP Bryan Shaw, C Chris Iannetta
SUBTRACTIONS: RHP Greg Holland, RHP Tyler Chatwood, C Jonathan Lucroy, 1B Mark Reynolds, RHP Pat Neshek, INF Alexi Amarista, C Ryan Hanigan
OUTLOOK: The Rockies enhanced their bullpen in an effort to earn back-to-back postseason berths for the first time in franchise history. They signed Davis ($52 million for three years) and Shaw ($27 million for three years) and brought back LHP Jake McGee ($27 million for three years). The lineup benefits from hitter-friendly Coors Field and features plenty of firepower, especially with the return of Gonzalez on a one-year deal. Arenado is one of the best hitters and fielders in the game, and Blackmon led the league in several offensive categories. They ran 4-5 in NL MVP voting. Colorado is hoping for bounce-back years from Story and Desmond.
PITTSBURGH: 2017 75-87, fourth place
MANAGER Clint Hurdle (seventh season)
ADDITIONS: OF Corey Dickerson, LHP Kyle Crick, RHP Joe Musgrove, RHP Michael Feliz, 3B Colin Moran
SUBTRACTIONS: CF Andrew McCutchen, RHP Gerrit Cole, RHP Daniel Hudson, C Chris Stewart, 1B John Jaso, RHP Joaquin Benoit
OUTLOOK: General Manager Neal Huntington insists the Pirates are not rebuilding, but it certainly looks that way after they flipped franchise cornerstones McCutchen and Cole for less expensive and less proven talent. The Pirates did nothing in free agency, though they were able to grab Dickerson -- an All-Star for Tampa Bay last season -- in February. Dickerson's arrival gives Pittsburgh some stability in the outfield, but the Pirates still have some serious power issues outside of Bell, who finished third in NL Rookie of the Year voting. Pittsburgh finished 29th in the majors in home runs in 2017, and while McCutchen and Dickerson's numbers are comparable, the rest of the lineup isn't exactly imposing. If Marte can put his suspension-marred 2017 behind him, if Polanco and his hamstrings can stay healthy, if Moran proves he can do more than spell Freese at third, and if Taillon, Kuhl and Williams all improve, Pittsburgh could be competitive. That's a lot of "ifs," probably a few too many.
Pirates, Rockies continue series in Pittsburgh

The Colorado Rockies knew they would be short-handed for a series against the Pittsburgh Pirates at PNC Park that started Monday. All-Star third baseman Nolan Arenado is serving the final three games of a five-game suspension for his part in a benches-clearing fight last week.

The Pirates found out Monday they would be without a regular, too. Second baseman Josh Harrison, who got hit with a pitch Sunday, was diagnosed with a broken bone in his left hand and put on the disabled 10-day list.

Unlike Arenado, whose return is set for Friday, Harrison is expected to be out longer term. The Pirates are expecting him to not only miss this series, which continues Tuesday, but also another month-plus.

"We've got men to man second base," Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said, rattling off the names of Sean Rodriguez, Adam Frazier and Max Morov, the last of whom was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis.

Frazier, when in the lineup, also will replace Harrison as the leadoff man. That's where Frazier was Monday, and where he could be Tuesday.

Pittsburgh (11-5) had its two-game winning streak stopped in the opener, 6-2. Colorado (10-8) has won two in a row and five of six.

Although Pittsburgh leads the National League Central, it has been better on the road (7-2) than at home (4-3). Following this three-game series, the Pirates head back on the road.

Rockies right-hander Chad Bettis (2-0, 2.04 ERA) is scheduled to face Pirates right-hander Trevor Williams (3-0, 1.56 ERA) Tuesday.

The expected starters for each club have gotten off to strong starts.

Bettis will be making his fourth start, his third on the road. Thursday at Washington, Bettis gave up just one run, on a solo homer, and three hits in seven innings.

He has become a pitcher who relies on strategy and location.

"That's kind of how I pitch. I don't have the 95 or 97 (mph) fastball anymore, so you have to work around that," Bettis told the Denver Post. "Command is a big part of my game."

He's also benefiting from a good fit with catcher Chris Iannetta.

"I really like when Chris is back there, because he's so confident with pitch selection and pitch calling," Bettis told the Post. "Chris is always prepared. Always."

Bettis has made six appearances, including four starts, against Pittsburgh, going 0-2 with a 6.26 ERA.

Williams also will be making his fourth start. He has won three straight decisions for the first time in his career.

Most recently, he gave up one run and four hits in six innings, with one walk and five strikeouts in a win over the Cubs.

"It's all coming together," Williams said. "Once the starts kind of get rolling and you get into that rhythm, as a staff and as a team really we're falling into our rhythm. We had a really great feeling coming out of spring training and it's been showing, that we're playing really good baseball."

He has allowed just one home run in 17 1/3 innings, but Colorado will likely challenge him in that category. The Rockies lead the NL with 26 homers and have hit at least one in seven of their past eight games, a total of 14 in that stretch.

Against the Rockies, Williams is 1-0 with a 6.75 ERA in one career start, last July.

In addition to putting Harrison on the 10-day disabled list and recalling Moroff, Pittsburgh optioned right-handed reliever Dovydas Neverauskas to Triple-A Indianapolis to make way for left-handed reliever Enny Romero, who officially joined the club after being claimed off waivers from Washington.
