Potential is the word that describes the outfield of the Colorado Rockies

The Rockies have a lot of talent in the outfield but they are young there. Lefty swinging Carlos Gonzalez will likely start in LF for the Rockies. He played in 89 games for the Rockies this season and he was 79 for 278 (.284 avg, .878 OPS) with 53 runs scored, 13 homers, 29 RBIs and 16 stolen bases. He has never played in the post season but the sky is the limit for his potential. Starting CF Dexter Fowler is the speedster of the Rockies. He played in 135 games as a rookie this season and he was 115 for 433 (.266 avg, .769 OPS) with 73 runs scored, 4 homers, 34 RBIs and 27 stolen bases. Fowler is also an outstanding defensive player which gives the pitcher’s more confidence. Lefty swinging RF Brad Hawpe is the only veteran of this bunch. He played in 145 games for the Rockies this season and he was 143 for 501 (.285 avg, .903 OPS) with 82 runs scored, 23 homers and 86 RBIs. Hawpe has also played in 11 games in his post season career and he is 11 for 39 (.282 avg, .814 OPS) with 4 runs scored, 1 homer and 4 RBIs.
