No stress (or strain) for Corpas

Rockies manager Jim Tracy said right-handed reliever Manuel Corpas was held out of running drills at the end of Sunday’s workout because of a slight hamstring issue that arose during a fielding drill. Tracy said it was so minor that head athletic trainer Keith Dugger didn’t even classify it as a strain. It doesn’t affect his ability to throw bullpen sessions. He’s scheduled to throw Monday.

Also, pitching prospect Craig Baker had a bullpen session pushed back because of soreness in his midsection. It occurred during a slug-bunt drill. Tracy said it elicited a nice one-liner from pitcher Aaron Cook.

“‘As Cookie’ told him, ‘We already have a four-hole hitter,'” Tracy said.

Tracy also added that the Rockies are planning an intrasquad game as on March 1. It’ll be a chance to see some of the younger pitchers and position playres.
