The Colorado Rockies got three good minor league arms in return for their superstar shortstop, so let’s take a look at how they did in the first week in the organization.

More from Colorado Rockies Prospects

Perhaps you heard, but the Colorado Rockies traded their star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki in exchange for Jose Reyes and three prospects last week — Jeff Hoffman, Miguel Castro, and Jesus Tinoco. Reyes may be here a while, or he may not, but the three arms are what’s interesting for Rockies fans.

Shaun Doyle, the editor of Jays Journal, spoke very, very highly about both Hoffman and Castro in an interview we did with them about the trade. But what do the Rockies really have in these three arms?

All three are at different minor league levels, and have different time tables upon which they’ll likely make the big leagues, with Castro (AAA) slightly ahead of Hoffman (AA) and Tinoco (A) on the organizational depth chart.

So here’s a grand old idea — let’s take a look at all three and see when the Rockies might be enjoying their talents in Denver, as well as what you should know about the three arms now that they’ve been in the Rockies’ organization for a full week and a half.
