Colorado Rockies: Looking at aces who never panned out
3 of 5
I am including Greg Reynolds on this list because Reynolds is the Rockies’ highest pitcher taken in the MLB Draft. Reynolds was selected second overall in 2006 while Jon Gray was third in 2013.
His career was riddled with injuries and, along with being rushed to the Majors, he never truly developed into the pitcher the Rockies had hoped.
After the 2011 season, he was traded to the Rangers for none other than Chad Tracy, who just happened to be the son of then-Colorado manager, Jim.
