Prospects sent out for regular work

Left-hander Christian Friedrich, the Rockies top choice in the 2009 MLB First-Year Player Draft, warmed up a few times but never made it into a Cactus League game. The Rockies wanted the first big-league camp to be a learning experience, and it was all that. But now he can only learn with regular work and game action.

Friedrich was one of the first 16 players the Rockies sent to Minor League camp on Tuesday.

Here is the list:

Left-handed pitchers: Friedrich.

Right-handed pitchers: Alberto Alburquerque, Craig Baker, Juan Nicasio, Edgmer Escalona, Andrew Johnston, Chaz Roe, Andrew Graham and Shane Lindsay.

Catchers: Jordan Pacheco, Michael McKenry and Wilin Rosario.

Infielders: Darin Holcomb, Hector Gomez and Jeff Kindel.

Outfielders: Chris Frey.
