Tracy plans night off for Belisle
CINCINNATI -- Matt Belisle, who recorded four key outs Friday night against the Reds, may get the night off on Saturday. He has pitched in four straight games and has 23 appearances on the season.

"I'm having days where I [look at certain members of my bullpen] and I have to say to myself, 'You can't do it -- not under any circumstances,'" Colorado manager Jim Tracy said. "And for me, Matt Belisle is teetering on that today. You look at [all the work he got] in Miami and what he did last night ..."

The Rockies are on pace to surpass 150 bullpen innings pitched by the end of May.

"If I'm going to be able to set my bullpen up and use it the way I want to, we're going to have to get more innings from our starters," Tracy said. "It's that simple."
