As we prepare to turn the calendar from 2019 to 2020, there are three members of the Colorado Rockies who are especially ready to put last season behind them.
After two straight years of reaching the postseason, the 2019 Colorado Rockies simply couldn’t put together the pieces in the same way that the previous two teams did. You can talk about juiced baseballs or injuries or regression or whatever you like … but you also at some point have to point out that some players didn’t live up to their billing last year.
But that was last year, right? It’s time to turn the page and start looking ahead to 2020. It’s time to think about how the Rockies will be different. There have been some minor changes in personnel. However, it’s clear that Colorado management believes this team as it is currently constructed has the talent to bring Rocktober back to Denver.
If that’s the belief, then there will be pressure to perform above and beyond last season’s numbers for three members of the team. Here are the three members of the Rockies we believe to be under the most pressure heading into 2020 spring training and beyond.
