When GM Bill Schmidt signed Kris Bryant to a seven-year, $182 million deal on March 18, he addressed Colorado’s desire for power in the outfield, not to mention the growing need for a marquee name in the wake of recent exits by Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story.

As if all the havoc that was wreaked on minor leaguers because of the pandemic wasn’t bad enough, then 2021 happened to Rolison. “It was a very frustrating…...
