Intrasquad plans for the Rockies

The rain has subsided in Tucson, so there is a little less worry about getting in Monday’s intrasquad game than there was hours ago. So unless the wetness returns, the game is set for Monday at 12:30 p.m. MT.

Interestingly, two frontline players — third baseman Ian Stewart and center fielder Dexter Fowler — are slated to participate. But as manager Jim Tracy said, that’s merely so they’ll have enough players.

Eric Young Jr., trying to win a utility spot, will play left field — a new position. Young is a natural second baseman. He played center field in a brief stint in the Majors last season. Young also could see time at third this spring.

On the pitching side, left-hander Jimmy Gobble is the only one with significant Major League experience participating.

Let’s hope the rain can hold off as today was super soggy! Was at the field yesterday and saw Chris Ianetta playing 3B for a while during BP… Thought that was interesting.
