Even though it doesn’t involve Ronald Acuna, Jr. or Ozzie Albies, this is the trade that the Rockies (and Rockies fans) would like more.
Pache, 21, is MLB.com’s #11 prospect and the Braves #1 prospect. He just made his Triple-A debut this year and only played in 26 games there but he still hit well. Overall, on a scouting scale, his contact is a 55 (slightly above average) but power is slightly below (45). He is rated a 70 (out of 80), though, on fielding, throwing, and running. All three of those should give some intrigue to the Rockies for the sheer fact that he is a center fielder and that in the Coors Field outfield would be great.
Anderson, 21, is MLB.com’s #31 prospect, the #9 pitching prospect in all of baseball, and the Braves #3 prospect. He was drafted third overall in 2016 and he just made it up to Triple-A in 2019 where he struggled in five starts. He pitched to a 2.68 ERA in 21 starts in Double-A before his promotion, though.
He has an above-average fastball, curveball, and changeup with average control, which is the main thing he’s working on. He may be good for the Rockies because he struck out 11.4 batters per nine innings last season and he is also a ground ball pitcher, which would obviously be a plus in Coors Field.
