Rockies ready to rest LaTroy Hawkins when needed
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(2/24/15) The Rockies will head into the 2015 season with LaTroy Hawkins as the team's primary closer, but manager Walt Weiss is ready to use other options in order not to overwork the veteran, MLB.com reports.
"Are we going to need other guys to finish games at times? Yes, we will," Weiss said Tuesday. "But he's the guy."
The Rockies have multiple pitchers with closing experience in camp in the form of lefty Rex Brothers and right-handed nonroster invitees John Axford and Rafael Betancourt. Righty Adam Ottavino is also an option for Weiss.
"It helps to have guys in the bullpen that have closed games before because there's a different mindset, but I feel like we have options and it doesn't have to be a veteran guy," Weiss said. "We have enough guys with stuff and presence."
Hawkins gave up no earned runs in eight innings last year while pitching on zero days of rest. He surrendered 12 earned runs in 13 1/3 innings while receiving just one day of rest. On multiple days of rest, Hawkins gave up eight earned runs in 33 innings of work.
Rockies' Rex Brothers reports to camp 10-12 pounds lighter
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(2/17/15) Rockies pitcher Rex Brothers replaced squats and presses with agility and movement exercises in his workout regimen this offseason, and as a result, he reported 10-12 pounds lighter to spring training, MLB.com reports.
Brothers blew all six of his save opportunities and finished 2014 with a 5.59 ERA. General manager Jeff Bridich recently told reporters he still considers Brothers as a potential closer moving forward.
Rockies still consider pitcher Rex Brothers a closer

|(1/24/15) Despite his struggles to close games in 2014, Rockies general manager Jeff Bridich told reporters Saturday he still considers pitcher Rex Brothers a potential closer, reports The Denver Post.
"You have to learn lessons from struggles," Bridich said.
In 2014, Brothers blew all six of his save opportunities and finished the season with a 5.59 ERA. However, Bridich said the 2014 season was not a typical year for Brothers.
"We're close to seeing the real Rex Brothers," Bridich said.
Report: Rockies, Rex Brothers avoid arbitration
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(1/16/15) The Rockies have avoided arbitration with pitcher Rex Brothers by agreeing to a one-year deal worth $1.4 million, MLB.com reports.
Brothers was eligible for arbitration for the first time this offseason. He posted a 5.59 ERA and 55:39 K:BB ratio in 56 1/3 innings over 74 appearances in 2014.
New Rockies bullpen coach feels he can help Rex Brothers
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(11/10/14) New Rockies bullpen coach Darren Holmes believes he will be able to help reliever Rex Brothers, who has been touted as the closer of the future, bounce back after a rough 2014 season, according to The Denver Post.
Holmes feels he will be able to rely on his experience pitching for Colorado (1993-1997) and impart his wisdom on the hard-throwing lefty.
"When I came to (Colorado), I put a lot of added pressure on myself," Holmes said. "I think that's probably what happened to Brothers. He's got great stuff. You don't (pitch) at Coors Field with a 1.74 (ERA) by mistake. That doesn't just happen. He's got great stuff.
"He's got a great makeup. Something went wrong, and it could be mechanical. It could be that something went wrong mechanically early and he couldn't pull out of it. Maybe it was mental. Maybe he got beat down early."
