News: Matzek is in line to open the season as a member of the Rockies' rotation, MLB.com's Thomas Harding reports.
Impact: When injuries to the starting pitching staff began to mount last June, Matzek was recalled by the Rockies and made the most of his opportunity in the rotation. The 24-year-old compiled a 4.05 ERA over 20 appearances, with his performance over his last six outings (4-2, 1.55 ERA) firmly solidifying his starting spot for 2015. The lefty had battled control issues throughout his minor-league career that aren't necessarily solved, but he still seemingly possesses more upside than any other member of the Rockies' projected rotation due to the solid strikeout rate he displayed during his hot finish to last season.
