Pacheco showing signs of regaining form

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Rockies catcher Jordan Pacheco entered Sunday with a .444 on-base percentage, and drove in a run with a sacrifice fly in his first plate appearance.

The spring success in limited action (he missed several days early with a left shoulder strain) is an indication that he has a chance to regain the success he had in 2012, when he led National League rookies with a .309 batting average and had a .341 on-base percentage.

"The key is sticking to a plan and executing it," Pacheco said. "You've got to get in the batter's box and figure it out, find your comfort zone. In the offseason you just work on the physical attributes of your swing. Now is the time for your mental approach."
