Colorado Rockies prospect Ashton Goudeau named as AFL Fall Star
One Colorado Rockies prospect has been named to the Arizona Fall League’s Fall Stars Game, set for October 12 at 5 p.m. (Pacific time) at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Ashton Goudeau, a right-handed pitcher, is currently the lone Colorado Rockies prospect that has been selected to be a part of the East squad for the Fall Stars Game. Two other pitcher spots, however, are currently listed as “TBA” for the squads that you can see by clicking here.
Entering play on Tuesday, the 27-year-old Goudeau had appeared in three games (no starts), throwing 7.2 scoreless innings and allowing just two hits. He has struck out 10 while not giving up a walk, helping him post a 0.26 WHIP.
Goudeau was originally a 27th-round draft pick by the Kansas City Royals in the 2012 Major League draft. He was traded to the Seattle Mariners on March 22, 2018 and advanced as far as Triple-A. He elected free agency following the 2018 campaign and was signed by the Rockies to a minor league contract.

In 2019, Goudeau appeared in 16 games (all starts) for the Double-A Hartford Yard Goats, going 3-3 with a 2.07 ERA. He missed some time with injury, placed on the injured list on June 7 and wasn’t activated until August 14.
In his last start before going on the injured list, Goudeau struck out a franchise-record 12 in six frames in a 7-2 loss to Trenton.
September 18 marked the start of the 2019 Arizona Fall League slate and the Colorado Rockies, along with the Arizona Diamondbacks, Miami Marlins, Minnesota Twins and Tampa Bay Rays, placed prospects on the Salt River Rafters club. Four Colorado pitchers (Ryan Castellani, Goudeau, Alexander Guillen and Antonio Santos) joined catcher Brian Serven and infielders Bret Boswell, Roberto Ramos and Colton Welker as Colorado’s representatives on the Rafters squad.
Castellani is also off to a strong start on the mound for the Rafters, allowing four hits and no runs in six innings spanning two starts. Could he be added to the Fall Stars Game in one of those TBA spots? Meanwhile, Welker is pacing things on the offensive side, putting together a .256/.347/.302 slash line in 11 games (43 at-bats).
