24-year old lefty starting pitcher Christian Friedrich came into this season as the Rockies’ #14 prospect according to Baseball America. Friedrich then started five games in AAA-ball this year and he was 2-1 with a 3.00 ERA and a 0.90 WHIP. He earned the promotion due to the Rockies’ rotation being in shambles and he has excelled so far. Friedrich has started 2 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 1-0 with a 1.38 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP. He has only given up 11 hits and walked 2 batters in his first 13 innings pitched for the Rockies, while whiffing 17 batters. The Rockies hope that Friedrich keeps up the good work.
