SotP: Justin Morneau to Take Todd Helton's Reins

First up in our evaluation of the Rockies infield is first base, where an unfamiliar face will play for the first time in well over a decade.

Ranking the Rockies #11: Dexter Fowler

Dexter Fowler took Rockies fans on a roller coaster ride in 2013.

Ranking the Rockies #12: DJ LeMahieu

DJ LeMahieu surprised by jumping from AAA into the full-season starter at second base. He also might surprise you by how poorly he actually was with his bat.

Arenado wins Gold Glove as rookie

Nolan Arenado was considered a liability defensively at third base when he was drafted. Four years later, he won a Gold Glove Award as a rookie.

CarGo snags 3rd Gold Glove

Rockies fans got to see Carlos Gonzalez put his foot back on the defensive pedal in 2013.

Ranking the Rockies #28: Charlie Culberson

Charlie Culberson came to the Rockies in the Marco Scutaro trade and found himself in the unlikely position of starting regularly in left field. Even more unlikely, he held his own in his new position.

Ranking the Rockies #31: Reid Brignac

Ultimately, Reid Brignac may be part of a future trivia question: which two players started at third base in Nolan Arenado's rookie season before Arenado was called up?

Ranking the Rockies #32: Chad Bettis

Chad Bettis was rushed to the majors out of necessity. Naturally, his performance at the big-league level can be best described as "up-and-down."

Ranking the Rockies #41: Tyler Colvin

Michael Cuddyer is known as being the magician among the Rockies outfielders, but Tyler Colvin demonstrated a bigger disappearing act than even Cuddyer could comprehend.

Ranking the Rockies #42: Eric Young Jr.

The 2013 Rockies ranked 4th in the NL in stolen bases. The NL stolen base champ was with the Rockies for half the season. These two statements, oddly enough, are not really related.

Rockies to Draft 8th Overall in 2014 MLB Draft

The Rockies win Sunday cemented Colorado into the 8th overall selection in the 2014 MLB draft. Might Rockies fans one day curse that win and the player Philadelphia chooses 7th, ahead of Colorado, due to Rex Brothers' save?

Thursday Rockpile: Exciting, Ineffective Arenado

Nolan Arenado leads all MLB hitters in one statistic, but it is one that could be a cause for his offensive struggles so far in his career.

2013 MLB Draft: History of the Third Overall Pick

Despite watching losing teams for the better part of two decades, Rockies fans are not used to seeing their team pick in the top three in the Rule 4 MLB Draft. What can we expect historically from the third overall pick?

Rockies to Trade Aaron Harang to Mariners

The Rockies reportedly have ended their juggling act at the catcher position by trading away a pitcher who never played for them.

Tuesday RP: Defense May Be Quickest Way to Improve

Much has been written about the Rockies beleaguered rotation and the potential for upgrade they carry from improving upon their 2012 performance. But it might not be starting pitching that has the greatest room for improvement.

Friday Rockpile-Most Vital Young Guy's Not Arenado

Much has been debated about Nolan Arenado in the past two weeks, but the third baseman is not even the most important young player on the roster to the Rockies' 2013 chances.
