Patrick Saunders has the lineups, as expected Brad Hawpe returns to action today for the first time since getting spiked on his pinkie finger a couple of weeks ago.
#11 / Right Field / Colorado Rockies
Jun 22, 1979
He, Clint Barmes and Todd Helton are the only projected opening day starters for the Rockies in the lineup, although Barmes won't be starting at shortstop come April. Marquis will be facing a light version of the Mariners team as well, with several of these players bound for Tacoma once the season begins. One other interesting note, former Rockie (and former and current Mariner) Denny Stark is scheduled to pitch today as he attempts to come back to baseball after a long absence.
