Spring Training Hits & Misses: Game 12 vs. Texas


Tyler Chatwood

The Texas Rangers fielded their big boy lineup this afternoon vs. Chatwood, and the Rockies 22-year-old held his own just fine with four very solid and efficient (50 pitches, 30 strikes) innings of one-run ball. He allowed four hits (two doubles), walked one and struck out a pair, and according to Troy Renck hit 94 on his fastball and 77 on curveball. He continued his tweet with "Chatwood has live, live arm, even if looks like could be in Little League."

I don't think there's anything I can add to that.

Jordan Pacheco

3-for-3 (single, two doubles) with three RBI on the afternoon. He's now 7-for-15 on the spring.

Man. Crush.

Todd Helton

2-for-3 (two doubles) two runs and an RBI. He's still my second ever but all-time favorite Rockies man crush. Dante Bichette was the first.
