CHICAGO — When you’re a rookie in Major League Baseball, sometimes you have to go on coffee runs. But the Rockies took it a step further on Wednesday.

The Rockies sent outfielder Noel Cuevas out in full uniform, along with a cart, on the streets of Chicago outside Wrigley Field.

Teammates Daniel Castro and Harrison Musgrave escorted him on the coffee run — not in their uniforms.

Cuevas went to Starbucks and came back with $111.55 worth of coffee.

Cuevos has appeared in eight games for the Rockies this season and is batting a .278.

The Rockies are in Chicago for a three-game series against the Cubs.
