Outman's schedule affected by weather
PEORIA, Ariz. -- At least the bad weather that halted the Rockies' game against the Mariners arrived late enough that starting pitcher Tyler Chatwood could throw 61 pitches. However, it played havoc with the pitching schedule of left-hander Josh Outman, who was scheduled to throw about three innings.

Outman, a candidate for the rotation or the bullpen, warmed up before and after the delay. Manager Jim Tracy said it would not be wise to use Outman on Monday against the Angels, since it's better that he give his arm some rest.

Rotation and bullpen candidate Esmil Rogers and bullpen candidate Edgmer Escalona were also supposed to be used on Sunday. It was not clear when they will be worked back into action.
