Nelson Gonzalez is relatively unknown in Colorado Rockies’ circles, but he shouldn’t be; he played in the Arizona Fall League for prospects last October (Trevor Story joined him, for example), and he has done very well in AAA Albuquerque’s bullpen this year.
In 36 games, he’s 4-4 with a 2.19 ERA, and in 61.2 innings, he’s allowed 52 hits and just 16 walks compared to 56 strikeouts. The Rockies sent him to the AFL for a reason in October; they should now find out what they have in Gonzalez this September after a successful season in the Pacific Coast League.
