Cactus League Spring Training Schedule: D-backs Vs. Rockies A Good Excuse To Ditch Work

Cactus League Spring Training action gets into full weekday swing today with a full schedule of games around the Valley. This means I expect to see the stands at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick filled with boys and girls ditching school and work plus a virtual herd of old people who have nothing better to do with their time. 

The Diamondbacks take the field against the Colorado Rockies at 1:10 p.m. at The Stick, Talking. Here's a real-time view of the field as of 10:51 a.m. Looks pretty good, huh, so why don't you fake a hangover and head on over for some afternoon baseball in the slightly cool Arizona weather.

A look at the project pitchers and lineup is posted after the jump.

Diamondbacks Pitching Probables: RHP Armando Galarraga, RHP Barry Enright, RHP Jarrod Parker, RHP David Hernandez, RHP Esmerling Vasquez, RHP Kam Mikolio, LHP Leyson Septimo.

Lineup: Bloomquist LF, Abreu 2B, Upton RF, Blum SS, Allen 1B, Mora 3B, Parra CF, Blanco C, Galarraga RHP

For the Rockies we are likely to see the impressively-named Jhoulys Chacin RHP take the bump for the first few innings. He will be backed up by Dexter Fowler CF, Jonathan Herrera 2B, Charlies Blackmon LF, Troy Tulowitzki SS, Todd Helton 1B, Chris Nelson 3B, Cole Garner RF, Matt Pagnozzi C.

MIL* @ CHI - Mesa
SEA @ SD - Peoria

For more Cactus League schedule and ticket information you can drive around to all ten fields and knock on the ticket window and ask for information. Or, if you are in the modern age (and we assume you are if you are reading this) then you can just go to the web site.
