Troy Renck of the Denver Post has injury updates on Jordan Pacheco and Jhoulys Chacin, both of whom we knew about as of yesterday, as well as Justin Morneau and Josh Rutledge, who were new to the list. Three of the four are in the day-to-day category, with Chacin the only one likely to miss extended time, and even that now looks like it's mostly a precautionary measure.

Juan Nicasio is fully healthy and ready to make his mark in the Rockies' rotation, writes's Thomas Harding. Nicasio will make his Cactus League debut today against the Giants.

Former Rockies farmhand and noted Bronco-beater Russell Wilson reported to camp for the Rangers on Monday.
