I am now working on the Detroit Tigers Top 20 prospects list for 2017. The next team in the queue is the Colorado Rockies, to be followed by the Los Angeles Angels, Miami Marlins, Toronto Blue Jays, the Cincinnati Reds, the Seattle Mariners, and finally the San Diego Padres.
Use this thread to discuss the Colorado Rockies organization. Possible points for discussion include, but are certainly not limited to:
****The Rockies finished 75-87 in 2016, third place in the National League Central Division. What's a realistic expectation for 2017? Can they get to .500?
****Jon Gray: have the Rockies found a pitcher who can actually be a long-term ace despite playing half his games in Coors Field? Does the 29/6 K/BB in his last three starts of the season herald a massive breakthrough, or does the 6.41 ERA in his final 10 starts give you pause?
****Assuming his thumb is OK, what do you expect from Trevor Story in a full season? Does the league adjust to him?
****He didn't get as much national attention as Gray or Story, but lefty Tyler Anderson had a very strong rookie campaign as well. Repeatable?
****Nolan Arenado: 2018 National League MVP?
****What do you expect from Jeff Hoffman and German Marquez in a full season?
****As always, feel free to discuss your sleeper prospects or anything else Rockies-oriented.
