• Lefty reliever Boone Logan's arm responded well to a 20-pitch bullpen session Friday. Next for him will be a 30-pitch simulated game, most likely consisting of two 15-pitch innings, on Monday.
Logan, signed by the Rockies for three years and $16.5 million during the offseason, had surgery to remove bone chips and shave a bone spur in his throwing elbow at the end of last season when he was with the Yankees. Logan hopes to appear in five Cactus League contests.
• The Rockies on Sunday officially announced their decision to send pitching prospects Eddie Butler and Jon Gray to Minor League camp. Both are expected to begin the season at Double-A Tulsa. Also sent down were right-hander Josh Sullivan, left-handers Yohan Flande and Pedro Hernandez, and catchers Dustin Garneau and Tom Murphy. The moves reduce Major League camp to 44 players, including 13 non-roster invitees.
• Righty Matt Belisle entered Sunday with a 10.80 spring ERA but threw a perfect inning against the Dodgers. "Matty is fine," manager Walt Weiss said. "He's worked on some things this spring that he's trying to do in games. We know what we've got there from Matty."
• Weiss issued his third challenge and first successful one this spring. Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig caught Jordan Pacheco's second-inning fly ball and threw a strike that hit catcher A.J. Ellis on the fly. Ellis' tag attempt clearly missed Matt McBride, but plate umpire David Soucy called the out.
It would have been the third out of the inning. Weiss sprinted from the dugout to challenge as the Dodgers dashed off the field. Umpires reversed the call after reviewing the replay.
• Right-handed-hitting outfield candidate Brandon Barnes preserved the 3-3 tie Sunday with a leaping catch against the left-field wall late in the game.
