After having missed the first 60 days of the season due to a domestic violence suspension, SS Jose Reyes made his return to the field with Triple A Albuquerque. He also made it known that Trevor Story was in his way.
“The only thing I control right now is being here and trying to get ready as soon as possible,” Reyes told a pool of reporters, “in the Isotopes dugout before a game against Fresno on Wednesday night. “I know Trevor has been doing an unbelievable job. That’s good to see. When you see a baseball player as a young man come to the big leagues and perform the way he is, that’s good to see.”
In an online poll to fans, 96% (909 votes) of 941 respondants wanted Story to stay as the starter.
The Rockies host the Cincinnati Reds one last game before heading out to West Coast to face the San Diego Padres. Tickets are still available so be sure to get yours today and help cheer on your Colorado Rockies.
Jordon Lyles to start today
The Colorado Rockies’ season opener is today and kicks off against the San Diego Padres at 3:10. Starting the game will be Jordan Lyles, who started only 10 times last season due to a toe injury.
Finally Rockies fans will be able to witness the newest MLB star, Trevor Story, who has blasted his way into the history books becoming the only rookie in the MLB Modern Era to homer in his first three games. His team is not too far behind with a total of 10 homers in the last three games. If Story gets even one home run in this series, he will be the fastest player to ever get there that fast. Hopefully the home crowd will witness history!
“Opening day is special it always is,” Colorado Rockies Manager Walt Weiss told 9 News on Thursday. “We’ve been in the desert a long time — a couple of months — so touching down in Denver was quite sweet.”
Plenty of great seats and affordable tickets are still available so be sure to get yours today and be there to witness history in the making.
