Rockies' Arenado to return for opener vs. Cubs

DENVER -- The Colorado Rockies welcome back All-Star third baseman Nolan Arenado but could be facing some roster decisions on Friday before starting a series against the Chicago Cubs.

Arenado completed a five-game suspension on Wednesday, when the Rockies lost 10-2 at Pittsburgh to end a 5-2 road trip that began in Washington. The Rockies were off Thursday after playing 17 consecutive days.

Arenado was suspended for charging the mound on April 11 when San Diego's Luis Perdomo threw a 96 mph fastball behind him. Outfielder Gerardo Parra's actions in the ensuing brawl resulted in a four-game suspension, which Parra is expected to begin serving Friday with the return of Arenado.
