The Cactus League begins play Wednesday, and the Colorado Rockies kick things off with a game against their Salt River Fields training partners, the Arizona Diamondbacks. With actual baseball games upon us, let's make some wild guesses with very little reasoning behind them. In other words, it's time for some official spring training predictions.
Jon Gray will struggle at first, then impress
Even in spring training, making your Major League debut is still one heck of an experience. Because of that, and the generally low expectations for Gray this spring, his first couple of outings may not be all that impressive. Once in the flow of things, though, his talent will shine through and he'll impress coaching staff and fans alike.
No major injuries will occur
Fingers crossed, right? There will be guys who get banged up every spring training as they get back into baseball shape, but the injury that causes someone to miss extended time won't happen this go round. But, as the intro said, there's little reasoning for thinking this.
