Rockies | J. Lopez must earn starting role in order to make team

The Denver Post's Troy E. Renck reports Colorado Rockies C Javy Lopez would have to win the starting job in spring training in order to make the team, which would depend on his catching abilities returning to form. Rockies manager Clint Hurdle intends to carry only two catchers on the regular season roster. Lopez provides insurance in the event C Yorvit Torrealba (shoulder) has any further shoulder problems after two different trips to the disabled list in 2006. C Chris Iannetta is the other catcher in the mix.
