CHICAGO – We’re not sure if it’s a rite of passage for the Colorado Rockies or some form of rookie initiation for the team, but whether one or the other, outfielder Noel Cuevas was a busy man this Wednesday.

Sent out in full uniform and in the company of fellow teammates Daniel Castro and Harrison Musgrave, Cuevas – cart in hands – made a coffee run to Starbucks outside Wrigley Field in Chicago.

Photos posted on Twitter showed a list of more than two dozen orders for a nice cup of java. How much did he spend? $111.55, according to a tweet from the Rockies themselves.

The caffeine certainly helped, as the Rockies hit four homers to beat the Cubs Wednesday 11-2.
