Colorado Rockies RP Wilton Lopez has corrected a flaw in his delivery that took away the downward action on his sinker, and he has seven strikeouts and no walks this spring. Lopez is being reminded to stay balanced in his delivery, which means he's not tilting back as he lifts his leg. "He's got much better sink and his changeup is going straight down, and it's tied into his delivery," pitching coach Jim Wright said. "He's been pitch-efficient. He's had the kind of outings we want to see out of him."

Colorado Rockies RP Matt Belisle is excited about the increased competition heading into the season. The team added several arms to the back end of the bullpen during the offseason. Belisle, who is just one of two pitchers to appear more than 70 times in each of the past four seasons, will compete with RPs Wilton Lopez and Adam Ottavino for a role in the bullpen from the right side. Belisle expressed that he is "extremely fortunate" that manager Walt Weiss shows confidence in him. He also said that many of his late-season struggles came from predictable patterns, especially against familiar hitters. He plans to use his changeup to combat that.

Colorado Rockies manager Walt Weiss is unsure who he'll turn to Wednesday, May 22, if a save situation arises with RP Rafael Betancourt (groin) unavailable. RPs Rex Brothers, Wilton Lopez or Matt Belisle are all options, but Weiss could play the matchups.
Fantasy Tip: Brothers is likely to receive the first crack at a save situation, unless Weiss plays the matchups in the ninth. If you already own Brothers in a deep league, hang onto him a bit longer until we know for sure that Betancourt is out of the woods. It's probably not worth adding Brothers otherwise.
