Rockpile links, 3/20: Rockies getting closer to opening day

Morales overcomes tight groin in solid start -

A hodgepodge of information from Thomas Harding to include talk about Drew Stubbs fight to win a job, Blackmon's nomer, Franklin Morales's strong start last night, and Chacin's schedule of rehabilitation.

Tyler Chatwood strongest right hander in rotation with Jhoulys Chacin out - Denver Post

Apparently, I have reached my limit of free articles from the Denver Post online this month. I didn't realize this was a new thing with them. So, you will have to read the article for yourself because I can't say for sure what it is about.

Fangraphs positional power ratings

Aroldis Chapman has facial fractures -

Chapman, a Red's pitcher, was hit by a line drive and carted off the field yesterday. He is considerably more lucky than Juan Nicasio as he did not seem to have neck damage. I hope all the best for him as he starts to recover from his injuries.
