"The Rockies seem content to hope that better health and an influx of younger players will be enough. Kris Bryant hit well last season in and around injuries that limited him to 42 games. Rookie Sean Bouchard hit .297/.454/.500 in his cup of coffee, and likely starts the year with at least a platoon role in an outfield corner. Top prospect Ezequiel Tovar is just 21, and the shortstop job is his -- there’s really no one to take it from him."
