There are plenty of Rockies prospects who have been talked about this spring, but there hasn’t been a lot of buzz around starting pitcher Antonio Santos. However, that could well change when the Rockies reconvene for spring training.
The 23-year-old right-hander is listed as Colorado’s 30th overall prospect by MLB.com. However, a strong spring had him tabbed as the prospect that turned the most heads in Arizona action. This follows a season where he was promoted from Class A Lancaster to Double-A Hartford and started eight games for the Yard Goats. A 1.25 WHIP and 44 strikeouts in 45.2 innings pitched are numbers worth watching.

This spring in five innings of action, he allowed one run on two hits.
There’s a reason why Santos is on Colorado’s 40-man roster and he has been displaying some of those skills in Rockies camp. He’ll likely start the season back at Double-A but don’t be surprised if a move to Triple-A isn’t far away.
