According to Pinpoint Weather, Colorado’s Most Accurate Forecast, widespread rain is expected to start before dinner Friday night and then transition into snow, leading to a winter weather advisory for the northern and southern foothills and portions of the high country. Weather models are predicting that overnight Friday into Saturday could generate about 1-2 inches of slushy, wet snow.

The team had placed left-handed pitcher Kris Bryant on a 10-day injured list with a low back strain on Thursday. He was replaced by outfielder Sean Bouchard from Triple-A Albuquerque.

The Rockies, who lost a club-record 103 games last season, have a record of 5-15. They are 2-10 on the road after they had the worst road record in the majors last year at 22-59. The team previously played a game on Wednesday which they won.
