Jordan Pacheco C/1B COL 10 Months
Jordan Pacheco recently traveled to San Luis Obispo, California to work with Rockies catching instructor Jerry Weinstein.
Pacheco worked on blocking drills and focused on throwing mechanics. While he only started five games behind the plate last season, the versatility should give him a leg up on keeping a roster spot. "I definitely feel comfortable doing it," said Pacheco. "But I want to make sure the pitchers feel comfortable with me. In spring training, I need to work with them to create that."

Jordan Pacheco had two hits and drove in a pair of runs in a loss to the Diamondbacks on Tuesday night.
Pacheco finished the game 2-for-4 with his 32nd double and two RBI. He's done a very nice job in his first season as a regular for the Rockies, hitting .306/.338/.418 with five homers, 54 RBI and seven stolen bases in 471 at-bats. There should be a role for him on the 2013 squad.

Jordan Pacheco went 2-for-4 and hit a three-run homer as the Rockies bested the Cubs 7-5 on Thursday.
The homer was just Pacheco's fifth in 453 at-bats, but his game is more about singles (.309 average) and doubles (30). The Rockies will probably have him battle Chris Nelson for the starting job at third base next spring. Ideally, Nelson would win the job and Pacheco could be used as a backup at the corners, a third catcher and a pinch-hitter.

Jordan Pacheco is expected to see some time behind the plate while Ramon Hernandez (hamstring) is sidelined.
Hernandez left Monday's game with a left hamstring strain and underwent an MRI on Tuesday. The Rockies were planning to try Pacheco behind the plate anyway, but the injury to Hernandez makes it more of a necessity. Matt McBride also could help back up Wilin Rosario.

Jordan Pacheco connected on a solo home run in Friday's loss to the Padres.
He finished the night 1-for-4 with a run scored and two RBI. While he doesn't offer much in the way of power production, Pacheco has certainly shown that he belongs in the big leagues, hitting a cool .306/.335/.411 with three homers, 37 RBI and five steals through 383 plate appearances on the season.

Jordan Pacheco went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer in Sunday's win over the Marlins.
Pacheco's fourth-inning blast off Josh Johnson was just his second of the season, and 33rd in 584 professional games. His .312/.343/.413 slash makes him a worthy option in NL-only leagues, however.

Jordan Pacheco had a terrific day at the dish in Thursday's 8-2 victory over the Cardinals, going 3-for-3 with a pair of doubles, run scored and two RBI.
While he doesn't deliver the power that you would typically expect from the third base position, Pacheco has been a quality addition to the Rockies lineup. He's now hitting .307 with one homer and 24 RBI in 264 at-bats on the year.

Jordan Pacheco's fourth RBI of the night gave the Rockies the lead in the 12th in Saturday's 8-6 win over the Padres.
Pacheco singled in Michael Cuddyer to give the Rockies the lead. Ramon Hernandez then knocked him in for an insurance run. It was a nice change for Pacheco, who had driven in a total of five RBI in 131 at-bats since the beginning of June. He's batting .306, so that part of his game is fine. If he steps forward in the run production department, he has a better chance of lasting as a regular.

Jordan Pacheco went 1-for-4 with an RBI triple in Friday's loss to the Angels.
Pacheco has seemingly cemented himself as the Rockies starting third baseman, hitting .296 with a homer and 14 RBI in his first 115 at-bats. He may only be keeping the seat warm until Nolan Arenado is ready to contribute, but as long as he's receiving everyday at-bats he's worthy of a look in deeper mixed leagues, especially when playing at home.

Jordan Pacheco received the day off Saturday as a precautionary measure to rest his sore left quadriceps muscle.
It doesn't sound as if it's anything serious that will require a trip to the disabled list, but should still be monitored. Pacheco is hitting .299 with a homer and 12 RBI through his first 97 at-bats and has started to cement himself as the Rockies full-time third baseman.
