A couple of notes ...

  • Charlie Culberson was optioned to the minors earlier this week but could start the season on the major league disabled list, as indicated by his absence from each of the minor league rosters.
  • If Eddie Butler doesn't begin the season with the big league club (his fate will be decided at some point tonight or tomorrow morning, he'll wind up in Triple-A and the Rockies will likely call upon Scott Oberg to replace Christian Bergman, who would take Butler's rotation spot, in the bullpen.
  • Several other players (Ryan Arrowood, Richard Castillo and Leuris Gomez, just to name a few) are missing from the rosters and list of players in extended spring training or rehab. It's unclear if those players will begin the year on the minor league disabled list, or if they were left off the rosters for some other reason.
  • Be sure to check Rockies Roster early and often to track movements for all of the players listed on rosters as well as the ones in question.
