The Colorado Rockies resist the temptation to trade Eric Young Jr.

24-year old switch hitting 2B Eric Young Jr. was a hot topic in trade discussions last week but the Rockies were smart to keep him. Young was the Rockies’ #18 rated prospect when the season started according to Baseball America but he’s probably moving up that list fast. He has played in 97 games in AAA-ball so far this season and he is 113 for 383 (.295 avg, .797 OPS) with 92 runs scored, 6 homers, 36 RBIs and 51 stolen bases. If anything were to happen to either Troy Tulowitzki or Clint Barmes the Rockies would likely call up Young to start at 2B. Look for him to get a September call up from the Rockies.
