Beimel en route; here’s the lineup
Left-hander Joe Beimel, who reached a Minor League agreement with the club yesterday to join a competitive bullpen association, is scheduled to arrive in Tucson later this morning.
In the meantime, manager Jim Tracy has posted a lineup that, save for the pitcher, looks like something you’d see on Opening Day.
Carlos Gonzalez, LF
Dexter Fowler, CF
Todd Helton, 1B
Troy Tulowitzki, SS
Brad Hawpe, RF
Chris Iannetta, C
Ian Stewart, 3B
Clint Barmes, 2B
Jason Hammel, RHP
Two catchers who have been injured recently, Paul Lo Duca (right arm strain) and Paul Phillips (right calf strain) are listed as available on the lineup card. Lo Duca said if he plays defensively, it’ll be at first base.
Righty reliever Rafael Betancourt will make his first appearance of the spring after battling shoulder tightness, and lefty Randy Flores will return after being hit on the throwing forearm by a line drive six days ago.
