From CBS on 3/26:
It appears that Larry Walker will begin the season on the injured list, opening up some playing time for some virtual unknowns in the Colorado outfield. Jeromy Burnitz will likely open the season in right field while the oft-injured Walker begins the year on the disabled list.
Preston Wilson is making good progress in his return from finger and knee problems, and should open the year in center field as expected. But who will open the year in left field? All indicators are pointing towards little-known Kit Pellow.
Pellow, who has spent many years in the minors, has impressed the Colorado braintrust with hustle and good glove work this spring. He has driven in timely runs, and his propensity to drive the ball in the gaps could make him quite productive at Coors Field.
Kit Pellow, what an awesome baseball name. Its right up there with the king of all baseball names, Mr.Rocco Baldelli
