Series Preview: Rockies vs. Brewers

Monday, April 3rd 12:10pm: Jon Gray (0-0 0.00) vs. Junior Guerra (0-0 0.00)

A 32-year old second year player and a 25-year old budding star take the mound for these teams’ opening days. Gray, the budding star, will make his first opening day start for the Rockies and try to start his 2017 year off with a bang. Junior Guerra on the other hand, will be making his first major league opening day start, and at the age of 32. Guerra has jumped all around the international leagues and finally finds himself making an appearance in the bigs. at the start of the year for the Brewers. Opening day holds many surprises, so this game will just be one to watch.

Tuesday, April 4th 5:40pm: Tyler Anderson (0-0 0.00) vs. Zach Davies (0-0 0.00)

Both of these sophomore pitchers will try and build off of successful 2016 rookie years. Davies 11-7 with an ERA just under 4.00 for the Brew Crew and Anderson went 5-6 with an ERA of 3.54. Both of these pitchers should find themselves as part of the future of their teams with how they pitched last year, and with good campaigns this year, they could both develop as front of the rotation starters.

Wednesday, April 5th 6:10pm: Tyler Chatwood (0-0 0.00) vs. Wily Peralta (0-0 0.00)

Tlyer Chatwood will try and continue his road success from 2016 on Wednesday. Chatwood was absolutely terrific, especially in the first half, when pitching away from Coors Field. While it was good to see, Chatwood will need to pitch better at home for him to really find himself as a reliable starter. But for the time being, a solid start on Wednesday could bring the Rockies a step closer to a possible four game sweep of the Brewers.

Thursday, April 6th 11:40am: Antonio Senzatela (0-0 0.00) vs. Chase Anderson (0-0 0.00)

Senzatela makes his first major league start on Thursday to wrap up the series. With injury troubles from others and a sold spring from Senzatela, he earned himself the fourth rotation spot amongst some stiff competition. He will face off against a pitcher the Rockies are familiar with, Chase Anderson, as he used to play for the Dbacks. The Rockies have had mixed success in the past against Anderson, with both Arenado and Blackmon taking him deep, four and two times respectively. This game will wrap up the series and while it would be great to see the Rockies sweep, they should definitely come out with at least two wins and probably three.
