On Wednesday, Baseball Prospectus announced their Top 101 Prospects and there was a report of a signing regarding a former Colorado Rockies pitcher.
The Colorado Rockies had a few prospects on the Baseball Prospectus Top 101 Prospects list for 2019. The top Rockies prospect on the list was infielder
. However, Rodgers dropped eight spots on their list from number 14 to 22. The only other Rockie on the list was Rodgers’ fellow infielder
, who was ranked 98th on the list. The Rockies had two players drop off the list for different reasons. First off, infielder
dropped off the list because he is no longer eligible, with having over a year of major league service time. The other is minor league pitcher,
, who after being drafted 4th overall in the 2016 draft, has had an injury plagued professional career along with horrible stats. In 2018, Pint only pitched in four games (all starts) with a 4.32 ERA in 8 1/3 innings. He had 11 walks in that span as well. Prior to 2018, Pint was at #77 so he dropped at least 25 spots on their list.

, who was traded from the Indians to the Rockies in the
trade in 2011, will get a base salary of only $1.5 million from the San Francisco Giants, according to
, but incentives can bring that to as high as an even $5 million, according to
. The 2016 NL All Star had a rough 2018 season with the World Champion Boston Red Sox as he had an ERA of 6.08 in 26 games (11 starts) allowing 5.4 walks per nine innings and 10.6 hits per nine innings. However, in 2016 and 2017, he had an ERA of 3.32 in both seasons with a 28-18 record (including 17 wins in 2017) while averaging a 132 ERA+,7.9 hits allowed per nine innings, and 3.5 walks per nine innings.
As a result, he could be a very plausible comeback candidate for the Giants this season.
