Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by joelapinski on Friday 29 July 2016 at 10:30 pm

24-year old lefty reliever Jerry Vasto is looking sharp in the minors so far in 2016 for the Colorado Rockies.  Vasto has pitched in 39 games (0 starts) in A+AA-ball for the Rockies this year and he is 3-2 with 11 saves, a 1.74 ERA and a 1.04 WHIP.  He has given up 27 hits and 16 walks while whiffing 57 batters in his first 41 1/3 innings in the minors this year…..and those are eye popping numbers!  Vasto has now pitched in 86 games (0 starts) in his first three years in the minors for the Rockies and he is 5-6 with 14 saves, a 2.41 ERA and a 1.04 WHIP.  He could be a fast riser for the Rockies.

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by joelapinski on Monday 25 July 2016 at 4:14 pm

The Colorado Rockies have called up 22-year old lefty swinging outfielder David Dahl.  Dahl came into this season as the Rockies’ #2 prospect according to Baseball America.  Dahl played in 92 games in AA+AAA-ball for the Rockies this year and he was 110 of 350 (.314 avg) with 70 runs scored, 18 homers, 61 RBIs and 17 stolen bases.  Dahl played in 367 games in his five years in the minors for the Rockies and he was 463 of 1,494 (.310 avg, .870 OPS) with 271 runs scored, 47 homers, 205 RBIs and 74 stolen bases.  I think Dahl is here to stay, as I think the Rockies will deal one of their starting outfielders later this week.
