(3/4/14) An MRI on the shoulder of Rockies catcher Jordan Pacheco revealed that he is just dealing with fatigue, MLB.com reports.
"It's fine structurally; it's strong," Pacheco told MLB.com. "You want to play every day and get your reps in Spring Training, but I played winter ball and I'm not too worried about it."
Pacheco was scratched from Monday's lineup and will rest for a few days before resuming his preparation for the season.
|Jordan Pacheco to undergo MRI on shoulder |

(3/3/14) Rockies catcher Jordan Pacheco was a late scratch Monday with a left shoulder injury, and he will undergo an MRI on the shoulder, the Denver Post reports. He is expected to be out until at least Thursday.
Pacheco is expected to serve as the team's No. 2 catcher this season after playing regularly at the corner infield positions over the last two seasons. He hit .239/.276/.312 with one home run and 22 RBI in 247 at-bats last season.
|Jordan Pacheco happy to be back behind the plate |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(1/15/14) Jordan Pacheco, who has been tabbed as the Rockies' backup catcher for 2014, spent some time in the offseason playing in the Dominican Winter League. He hit .274 with a .354 on-base percentage, one home runs, four doubles and six RBI in 20 games.
"I played for a month," Pacheco told MLB.com. "I was signed to play another week, but I felt I got what I needed out the playing time plus I got a little sick at the end and thought it was best to just go home and get a well needed rest from baseball. I am totally healthy and just working to be ready to earn a job in February and March."
While he has played only 22 games at catcher in the majors, mostly seeing time at first and third base, Pacheco is happy to be back behind the plate.
"I like catching," Pacheco said. "I take a lot of pride in working with the pitcher and the team trusting me to give the pitcher the best opportunity to help us win.
"It was my main position and only position for five years straight. It was the position that got me to the big leagues and I worked at being the best receiver thrower and blocker I could be. So it comes more natural now than the infield."
|Rockies peg Jordan Pacheco as backup catcher |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(12/12/13) Though the Rockies looked into signing a free agent catcher earlier this offseason, they're nw content to begin 2014 with Wilin Rosario as their starter, which would leave Jordan Pacheco as the backup, according to The Denver Post. Pacheco hit .239 in 247 at-bats last season, splitting the year between the majors and minors, but he hit .309 in 475 at-bats in 2012.
"Jordan had a bit of a rough season just because, I think, more due to the dynamics of our club and the way we put it together. There really wasn't a spot for him to get consistent at-bats on our club," manager Walt Weiss said. "I thought it was really important that toward the end of the season we sent him out and he got to go down to Colorado Springs and catch. Then when he came back up, he got to catch some games late. We feel comfortable with him at that position. It is his natural position. He's comfortable back there."
|After seeing semi-regular at-bats in 2012 as a corner infielder, Jordan Pacheco struggled adjusting to more of a bench role for the Rockies in 2013. He went from playing in 132 games in '12 to 95 games in '13, but the more disappointing drop came in his batting average, which sank from .309 to .239. Pacheco even spent a few weeks in the minors, so he could get some regular at-bats to work on his swing. It seemed to help since Pacheco hit .271 in his final 26 games (13 starts) after returning in late August. Sadly, Pacheco still heads into 2014 without full-time at-bats, so he's not a very good Fantasy option. He's merely a low-end reserve in NL-only Fantasy formats, but probably can be left on waivers in most leagues.
