In lieu of final Farm Report from Inside The Rockies before we move on to new things, we thought we would offer up this discussion piece to everyone on what the Colorado Rockies will look like in 2014.
Baseball America and Jack Etkin released their 2012 list of the top 10 Colorado Rockies prospects. The list has seen significant changes since 2011, when it was topped by left-hander Tyler Matzek and included Christian Friedrich, Peter Tago and Hector Gomez, all of whom have fallen out of the top 10 in 2012.
Pitcher Rob Scahill will go to the Arizona Fall League, replacing Drew Pomeranz, whom the Colorado Rockies announced would not pitch there after he started the final regular season game Wednesday against the San Francisco Giants.
The Colorado Rockies salvaged the final game of the season and avoided what would have been their first 90-loss season since 2005, beating the San Francisco Giants, 6-3, just the Rockies’ fifth win in 18 tries against the Giants in 2011.
The Houston Astros again shelled Colorado Rockies pitching, collecting 14 hits — including one each from their first six hitters of the game — en route to an 11-2 win and the Rockies’ ninth straight loss.
A rough eighth inning for Huston Street let a 3-2 Colorado Rockies lead slip away in the second major league start for Drew Pomeranz and led to an eventual 6-5 win Saturday for the San Francisco Giants.
Drew Pomeranz pitched five sharp innings in his major league debut Sunday as the Colorado Rockies took the finale with the Cincinnati Reds, 4-1.
The Colorado Rockies have recalled infielder Thomas Field, who spent the season at Double-A Tulsa and will start at shortstop Sunday, add added starting pitcher Drew Pomeranz to the active roster. Catcher Matt Pagnozzi was designated for assignment and outfielder Ryan Spilborghs moved to the 60-day disabled list to make room.
The Colorado Rockies have settled on the four pitchers they will send to the Arizona Fall League: left-hander Drew Pomeranz, who will make his major-league debut on Sunday, and right-handers Joe Gardner, Casey Weathers and Parker Frazier.
Left-hander Drew Pomeranz, the key prospect the Colorado Rockies received in the deal that sent Ubaldo Jimenez to the Cleveland Indians in July, will make his major-league debut Sunday against the Cincinnati Reds.
The Dust Devils won their first game in the Northwest League playoffs behind starting pitcher Christian Bergman, who took a no-hitter into the six, allowed two hits, walked one and struck out eight in seven innings.
Jordan Pacheco, Chris Nelson and Jim Miller recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs, and Wilin Rosario and Drew Pomeranz promoted from Double-A Tulsa.
