Rockies | Juan Nicasio to work home opener

Colorado Rockies manager Walt Weiss elected to go with SP Juan Nicasio for the home opener against the Arizona Diamondbacks Friday, April 4, rather than SP Franklin Morales, because Nicasio's experience at Coors Field is fresher. "More than anything, Juan has pitched a lot and made a lot of starts in our park," Weiss said Tuesday, April 1. "Frankie did at one time, but it's been a while. I'd rather Frankie's first start be on the road before we get back there in all the hoopla of opening day and throw that on top of being with a new club. Juan was the best choice."
