With billions of dollars in revenue lost by Major League Baseball and a collective bargaining agreement set to expire following 2021, sweeping changes throughout the sport loom large over the next 12 months. Somewhat coincidentally and entirely unfortunate, MLB is preparing to make grand changes to the landscape of Minor League Baseball, taking over the operation of the minors in…

On Wednesday, Major League Baseball released the rosters for the six-team Arizona Fall League, the premier extended-season league for all 30 MLB team’s top prospects.  The Salt River Rafters have six Colorado Rockies representatives so far, with room for two more pitchers to eventually be added.  Only 1B Roberto Ramos is at Triple-A, while the other five players are…...

The storyline sounds familiar: a young starting pitcher with promising skills set to become the Rockies undeniable ace loses command on abilities and gets sent to the minors in order to recapture his magic. This year’s version pertains to Kyle Freeland. After finishing 4th in Cy Young Award voting in 2018, the 26-year-old hurler now sits at a 7.13 ERA after…

DENVER – Anyone reviewing box scores for the Albuquerque Isotopes earlier this month would have noticed some excellent stat lines for top prospect Brendan Rodgers in the days before his call-up to the Colorado Rockies. On May 13, Rodgers notched four hits and two runs batted in during an 8-7 loss to Washington Nationals affiliate Fresno. On May 14, he…...

Albuquerque Isotopes (AAA) The most interesting team in the organization is easily the Triple-A club as…...

They will not be splitting their bond. The half-life shall go on. It all comes down to a shared chemistry. It’s radioactive… radioactive. There will continue to…

DENVER – The biggest coaching question this offseason for the Colorado Rockies was centered on Duane Espy’s replacement after his three-year stint as hitting coach. Once Dave Magadan, a veteran of sixteen seasons as a player and seventeen more as a hitting coach, was selected in mid-December, the remaining interest dealt with coaches of the organizations younger players. Since then,…...

DENVER – When Garrett Hampson reported to the Rockies major league camp in Scottsdale in February at the start of the 2018 season, he was a 23-year-old infielder who had never played professional baseball above Class A. By October, he was on Colorado’s playoff roster and a key player off the bench, scoring what would be the final run of…...

SCOTTSDALE – As a 6’5” outfielder with an impressive combination of speed and power, it seems hard to believe that some scouts didn’t believe Sam Hilliard could make it as a hitter. After four progressive seasons in the Rockies organization, featuring All-Star selections each of the past three years, including this season where he was the runner-up in the Double-A…...

DENVER – When the Colorado Rockies selected Jon Gray third overall in 2013, many believed the team had their first bonafide ace in the making. When he debuted just two years later, and struck out 16 Padres in a game in Coors Field a year after that, the thoughts were affirmed. But no good story lacks adversity. While the stuff…...
