Jordan Pacheco (shoulder) has been cleared to resume hitting but isn't ready to play in games yet.
Pacheco still has time to get ready for Opening Day but will obviously need to see some game action before long. "I don't want to go out there at 80 percent. I want to be 100 percent for my pitchers," Pacheco said.
Troy E. Renck of the Denver Post writes that Tyler Matzek has been "impressive" in Rockies' camp in his conversion from starter to reliever.
Renck thinks the former first-round pick could crack the Opening Day roster if Boone Logan (elbow) isn't ready. Matzek has struck out six over five scoreless frames so far this spring. The 23-year-old holds a 4.38 ERA and 6.3 BB/9 rate in the minors, but he has a big arm and could be able to throw enough strikes in shorter stints.
Boone Logan (elbow) threw a 25-pitch bullpen session Saturday.
He'll throw another 'pen session Tuesday. Coming back from offseason surgery to remove bone chips in his pitching elbow, Logan still has time to get ready for Opening Day. "I am hopeful he will be ready," Rockies pitching coach Jim Wright said Saturday. "He wanted to go longer today, but there was no reason to."
Matt Capps (shoulder) will resume playing catch on Monday.
If all goes well, he could be throwing off a mound in a week. Capps is nursing a shoulder strain and will not make the Opening Day roster, but he'll be an option for the Tribe's bullpen at some point if healthy.
Hunter Pence (shoulder) expects to return to the lineup Monday.
Pence also revealed that his ailment concerns his left shoulder, not left elbow as previously reported. Regardless, it's not a big deal and he'll be back in there soon.
Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said Sunday that the team "will have to make a decision" about Jose Iglesias (shins) soon.
Iglesias is feeling better, but Ausmus said the shortstop is "gonna hit that point where he won't have enough at-bats." It's possible that the shortstop will make his Grapefruit League debut later this week. If Iglesias isn't ready at the start of the season, the Tigers are likely to carry Hernan Perez as their shortstop.
Jaime Garcia (shoulder) said Sunday that he's "very excited the way I feel right now."
Garcia will undergo two days of tests at Dr. James Andrews' Sports Medicine and Orthopaedic Center starting on Monday and could be cleared to resume throwing later this week. "I'm very positive about where I am and, as soon as the trainers give the green light -- Wednesday, Thursday -- I'm ready to start throwing," Garcia said. "This is something good, to get things rolling."
Michael Morse is currently nursing a sore right calf.
Morse said "it's nothing" when asked about the calf Sunday and then proceeded to job out of the clubhouse. He should be back in there in a day or two.
