Colorado Rockies: The top 25 players under 25 years old
7 Antonio Senzatela
The right-hander spent almost his entire age 22-year-old season in the majors. That’s wild! He had a 2.1 bWAR. That’s really good. He can’t make the starting rotation. Not his own doing.
The long man for the Rockies right now, “Senza” had a 4.38 ERA in 134.2 big league innings in 2017, including 20 games where he started. All of this came despite skipping Triple-A and not even throwing 35 innings above High-A.
Senzatela rocketed to the big leagues last year and the Rockies rewarded him. Someday he will be a starter again — probably this year as soon as one of the Rockies starting five goes down with an injury — but he also profiles very well out of the bullpen. The Rockies have a really good young pitcher in Senzatela. They just have to find him work.
