24-year old righty swinging outfielder Kent Matthes wasn’t one of the top prospects of the Rockies coming into this season. But, he’s starting to change that this year. Matthes has played in 93 games in A-ball so far this year and he is 124 for 371 (.334 avg, 1.020 OPS) with 70 runs scored, 23 homers, 95 RBIs and 7 stolen bases. He has now played in 177 games in his first three years in the minors and he is 208 for 691 (.301 avg, .900 OPS) with 118 runs scored, 29 homers, 141 RBIs and 13 stolen bases. If Matthes keeps hitting like he is right now, the Rockies might put him on the fast track to the majors.
