Among new additions to the Rockies' 40-man Major League roster, right-handed pitcher Bruce Billings will wear 65, catcher Jordan Pacheco will wear 58 and outfielder Cole Garner will wear No. 14. The non-roster jersey numbers will be available soon, most likely after the Rockies finishing granting invitations. On Thursday, the club announced that a pair of their Minor Leaguers, right-handed pitcher Alan Johnson (10-8, 5.91 ERA in 28 games, 25 starts, at Triple-A Colorado Springs) and left-handed pitcher Keith Weiser (10-8, 4.18 ERA in 26 starts at Double-A Tulsa) have received invitations to big league camp. Pitchers and catchers begin workouts on Feb. 15.
