Rosenthal had trouble against the first batter he faced last season, and believes he may be able to get around that by pitching from the stretch. The idea has been discussed, but it's unclear if Rosenthal will follow through with it.
He did stress that getting ahead of batters is his main goal this season. "Working ahead (in the count). Making quality pitches early in the count. These are the big goals for this year," he said.
The 24-year-old posted a 3.20 ERA over 70 1/3 innings last season.
Rosario showed off his athleticism, saving two possible errors during the appearance. The club is trying to work Rosario in at the position after signing Nick Hundley in the offseason. Rosario has been taking extra fielding practice at first during camp. Rosario is expected to see equal time at first and behind the plate this spring.
The 26-year-old hit .267/.305/.435 over 382 at-bats last year.
"Everybody knows it was my first day," Tomas said. "It was a good day. I put in the hard work to see it happen, and it felt like overall a good day."
Tomas played in five innings on the day. Manager Chip Hale said he thinks Tomas is right where he expected him to be offensively.
"With the bat, I thought this was how he would look," Hale said. "He looked very comfortable. He looked very relaxed."
Goldschmidt saw his first game action since last season on Tuesday, singling in his first at-bat since August 1. Goldschmidt missed the final two months of 2014 due to a broken hand, but said the injury has not been an issue during camp.
"It was the last thing on my mind," Goldschmidt said. "It's not the first time I've gotten hit. It's not the first time I've gotten injured. Hopefully it doesn't happen again, but chances are something is going to happen in the future."
Goldschmidt has been wearing a small pad in his batting glove in order to prevent the injury should he get hit in the same spot. He's used the pad during batting practices, and said he doesn't even feel it.
The 27-year-old hit .300/.396/.542 over 406 at-bats last season.
Billingsley is coming off two elbow surgeries, and is behind to start camp. Billingsley was expected to compete for a spot in the team's rotation if healthy. The 30-year-old owns a career 3.65 ERA over 1,175 1/3 innings.
Inciarte flashed potential during the second half of the season in 2014, but is on the fringes of the 25-man roster this spring. For right now, he's open to any role the team will give him.
"There's a lot of competition here, but you only control what you can control," Inciarte said. "I know I can play defense. I know I can run. And I know I can hit. I've just got to do my job. I want to have a chance to play, but I'm ready to take any opportunity they give me or any role."
Manager Chip Hale praised Inciarte's versatility, saying Inciarte is "the type of player you like to have because he can do so many different things."
Inciarte knows the odds are against him, but knows whatever decision the team makes will be for the best. "I know whatever happens is going to be the best thing for me," he said. "I know if I go to Triple-A, I'm going to do my best and find my way back."
The 24-year-old hit .278/.318/.359 over 418 at-bats last year.
Utley did not participate in workouts on Monday due to a sore ankle. He's expected to miss a few spring games due to the injury, but the fact that he was able to put in work on Tuesday should be seen as an encouraging sign.
The 36-year-old hit .270/.339/.407 over 589 at-bats last season.
Lincecum can on in relief on Tuesday, giving up one run in one inning of work. He struck out two batters, and generally felt good about the outing. "I felt pretty good out there," Lincecum said. "My fastball had some life and my changeup was good at times."
Manager Bruce Bochy seemed to agree, saying he believed Lincecum had good command of his fastball.
Lincecum is expected to open the season in the team's rotation. He posted a 4.74 ERA over 155 2/3 innings last year.
De La Rosa was acquired by the team during the offseason, and is expected to compete for a role in the starting rotation. The 25-year-old posted a 4.43 ERA over 101 2/3 innings last season. It's unclear how long De La Rosa will pitch on Wednesday.
"I need to work more on my swing and my approach defensively," Ynoa said. "I need to be good in all the positions in the infield. So if they need me up there, I’ll be able to do that. Because I know that will be my job."
Ynoa hit .343/.380/.463 in 67 at-bats during his 19 games with the Rockies last season. He then hit hit .293 in the Dominican winter league before shutting it down, per the team's request.
