Rockies | Franklin Morales aiming for rotation job

Colorado Rockies P Franklin Morales heads to spring training with hopes of winning a spot in the team's rotation. He is part of a group trying to unseat SP Juan Nicasio as the team's fifth starter. "I know what I can do, and right now, I have my confidence back," Morales said. "What I need to do is make my pitches and throw the ball down and see what happens."

Fantasy Tip: Morales was a starter until 2009, but has just 25 starts in 195 big league appearances. Should he win the fifth starter job for the Rockies, his fantasy appeal would still be limited to deeper NL-only formats.
