I don’t like the Colorado Rockies Major League team. Sure, they have two bonafide offensive stars in Trevor Story and Nolan Arenado, but average to below-average complementary players. It’s a shame as a slew of prospects have recently been given their shot, but because of lack of consistent playing time, none of them have had a chance to establish themselves. The pitching…well, it’s not very good. But that’s always been the case.
I also don’t like their minor league system. It’s surprisingly light on potential impact players. Instead, there are a lot of complementary players that once promoted will compete with the Hampson’s, Tapia’s, and McMahon’s of the World.
That said, I do really like Zac Veen. He’s everything you want in a prospect. Athletic with good bat speed and a chance to hit. Can the Rockies develop him? Five years ago, I would have said yes. Now, I’m not sure.
I’m just underwhelmed with what the Rockies are doing.
