On the final day of the 2018 regular season with the fate of the NL West hanging in the balance, a certain bright-eyed minor leaguer showed up to Coors Field to witness the potentially historic game. Standing behind home plate during batting practice watching the Rockies – former teammates, current friends and associates – he said almost the unthinkable. Off-handed, humorous…

DENVER – Nobody has a crystal ball, so projecting how young baseball players will eventually turn out can oftentimes feel a bit like throwing darts at an ocean-sized board. One such Rockies prospect makes the other 29 MLB teams consider what could have been. There is still a chance we all look back one day on the career of Sam Hilliard and wonder how he flew so completely under the radar. Make no mistake.

Tim Wheeler comes to mind as a guy with size and speed and awesome numbers in the minors who just didn’t translate to the big leagues. The…

DENVER – Garrett Hampson hasn’t had of the year that he, or any of his teammates, fans and coaches were hoping for. After a quick rise through the system saw him make a surprise positive impact on the March to 91 when’s a year ago, he looked primed to potential he break out and make himself an in valuable glue...

It was clear from the beginning of the 2018 campaign that the Colorado Rockies were unsure what they were going to get out of their promising young outfield prospects. This is at least part of why they brought back Carlos Gonzalez on a one-year deal. And whether it be Raimel Tapia’s rough edges or David Dahl’s history with injuries, the...

DENVER – For Colorado Rockies outfielder David Dahl, the goalposts just keep moving. Which is how it should be if you want to be more than a role player in baseball. Since his exhilarating finish to the 2016 season, he has struggled to stay on the field, making his health and longevity the primary focus of his career. Now, just...

For them, absence makes the heart grow far more skeptical. This pessimism is mostly well founded. A lack of...
