Blackmon is the DH and the 3 bench spots are up for grabs

The 2023 season hasn’t even started the Rockies depth is already being challenged.

The ripple effects from Brendan Rodgers’ shoulder separation and Sean Bouchard’s torn biceps have shaken up the entire roster. Both injuries are trending toward being season-enders. Throw in Randal Grichuk’s sports hernia that figures to have him returning sometime in April and the 26-man roster for the Rockies seems like it could have a theme this season: fluctuating. How the DH and bench are used will be very important in terms of how younger Rockies can progress as the team builds toward the future.
