Report: Rockies' Arenado to start season in minors

The SportsXchange

Colorado Rockies prospect Nolan Arenado will begin the regular season at Triple-A Colorado Springs, according to MLB.com.

Despite hitting four homers in Cactus League play, the Rockies will start Chris Nelson at the hot corner, and this move will also delay the start of Arenado's major-league service time.

The 21-year-old was selected in the second round of the 2009 draft, and remains one of the organization's top prospects. He batted .285 with 12 homers last season with Double-A Tulsa.
