The Rockies have a clear front-runner to play first base, and it’s not Ian Desmond

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Looking for intrigue at Rockies spring training?  Look to first base.

The other denigrates him his .404 career slugging average in six Rockies seasons -- not high enough with home games at Coors Field -- and essentially devalues the importance of the traits that have earned him Rawlings Gold Glove Awards.

Carlos Estevez aiming for important duty in Rockies’ bullpen

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — This spring training presents a terrific opportunity for Rockies right-hander Carlos Estevez. Make the most of it, and he’ll be in line to pitch some important innings during the regular season. Struggle, and Estevez could face more schooling at Triple-A Albuquerque. A confident Estevez is betting he’ll be a full-time big-leaguer, possibly working as a stand-in for set-up man Bryan Shaw. “I feel good, really good,” the 25-year-old said. “All offseason, I...
