Matt Meyers did go to Rockies camp yesterday, and comes back with some interesting stuff on our Latin system, including a look at Hector Gomez.

Troy Tulowitzki and Chris Iannetta both had reason to celebrate a little bit on Monday, in a testament to their makeup as ballplayers, both went back to work instead. Fantastic.

For those that missed the list of the rest of the demotions yesterday, here's the official transactions page. As has been noted, nothing shocking here, the closest to the bigs this Spring was Jeff Salazar's brief flirtation with one of our backup outfielder roles.

Thomas Harding's notes column at the official site has an interesting quote from Clint Hurdle way at the bottom in regards to what he's looking for in Jeremy Affeldt's performance this Spring:

"His strengths are his fastball and his curveball," Hurdle said. "There are times to work on some other things, but don't lose sight of what you need to do when you need to do it."
