Here’s Who The Colorado Rockies Are Sending To The Arizona Fall League

Acquired: Drafted by the Colorado Rockies in the 6th round of the 2012 amateur draft from St. John’s University.
2015 team: Matt Carasiti spent 2015 at Class A-Advanced Modesto.
2015 stats: In 48 games thus far in Modesto, Carasiti has finished 41 and earned 21 saves, striking out 55 hitters in 55.2 innings. He’s taken seven losses, and has a 1.33 WHIP as Modesto’s closer, but that is in the offensively-skewed California League, and in his 55.2 innings this year, Carasiti has only allowed three home runs.
Notes: The St. John’s University product is an example of organizational relief depth — or, rather, he will be in another couple years when he’s hopefully big league ready.
The Colorado Rockies have several closers they are going to look at closely coming through the minor leagues (including one on the very next slide), but that doesn’t mean Carasiti couldn’t soon do what Scott Oberg is attempting to do with the big league club: earn his way towards the back end of a bullpen by showing power pitches.
After all, if there’s one thing the Colorado Rockies can absolutely never get enough of, it’s quality bullpen depth.
