8. (6th, #167) Jack Wynkoop, LHP, University of South Carolina
Wynkoop is now 25 and pitching in his 3rd year at AA. After a so-so 2017 in Hartford, Wynkoop struggled mightily in 2018. This year he seems to have turned it around, however, lowering his ERA from 6.58 to 2.91 and boosting his K/9 from 4.1 to 7.1.
9. (7th, #197) Brian Mundell, 1B/LF, California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo
Mundell has slowly but steadily hit his way up the minor league ladder and now finds himself in his first year of AAA ball, where he’s off to a fantastic start. Through 17 games the 25-year-old is hitting a red-hot .362/.431/.655 and is currently listed as the Rockies’ #29 prospect on MLB.com.
10. (8th, #227) Colin Welmon, RHP, Loyola Marymount University
Welmon voluntarily retired in 2017 following two rough years at A+ Modesto and Lancaster. He finished his final year with a 6.32 ERA over 72.2 innings of work, giving up 20 walks and 94 hits, including 18 homers.
11. (9th, #257) Trey Killian, RHP, University of Arkansas
Killian was released partway through the 2018 season after failing to show positive progress in his development. In 2017 the then-23-year-old Killian walked 46 and struck out 130 batters in 153.1 innings, however these numbers regressed severely in 2018. In 24 innings before his release, Killian walked 28 batters while striking out only 15 on his way to a gaudy 9.75 ERA.
