Worth noting

• Rockies reliever Matt Belisle, coming off a year in which his 4.32 ERA was his highest since 2009, gave up one run and two hits and hit two batters against the Reds on Saturday. Belisle has always worked outside, but wants to incorporate his changeup and pitch inside more this year.

"They go hand-in-hand," Weiss said of pitching inside and using the changeup.

• Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado had three hits and an RBI Saturday, once more backing Weiss' prediction that he'll make strides offensively after a strong defensive season as a rookie in 2013.

"He's got his legs underneath him," Weiss said. "There were times last year when he got away from his legs. He's got a good base to hit with. I don't worry too much about Nolan."
