The Rockies will ultimately play 40 games against divisional opponents and 20 games against the American League West Division. That includes hosting Arizona three times, Los Angeles four times, San Diego seven times and San Francisco six times.

Star center fielder Charlie Blackmon and two other Rockies players have tested positive for COVID-19. 

Each of the games will air on AT&T SportsNet.
