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

Brendan Rodgers

. However, Rodgers dropped eight spots on their list from number 14 to 22. The only other Rockie on the list was Rodgers’ fellow infielder

Garrett Hampson

, who was ranked 98th on the list. The Rockies had two players drop off the list for different reasons. First off, infielder

Ryan McMahon

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,

Riley Pint

, 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.

trade in 2011, will get a base salary of only $1.5 million from the San Francisco Giants, according to

Larry Krueger of the Giants flagship radio station KNBR 680

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic on Twitter
