Number 1- Jamey Carroll

There hasn’t been a huge standout player who has worn #1 for the Rockies which made this fairly easy.

Ryan McMahon wore the uniform for part of 2017 but it was only part of the season and he doesn’t wear it anymore. Currently, Garrett Hampson wears the number so he could eclipse Jamey Carroll in the coming years but, for now, Carroll is the winner.

He had a 3.3 bWAR season in 2006 for the Rockies, partially due to his superb defense (19 bDRS between second base, shortstop, and third base).

He didn’t have a great 2007 campaign but he did hit the fly ball to right field that “scored” Matt Holliday in Game 163 against Bud Black‘s Padres.

Number 2- Troy Tulowitzki

This is another one with no debate. In fact, Troy Tulowitzki is the only Colorado Rockies player to wear the number for more than one season.

Alexi Amarista, Jeff Frye, and Brent Butler are some of the others who wore it. You likely haven’t heard of the others who wore the uniform.

Tulo played parts of 10 seasons with the Rockies and in that span, he ranked in MVP voting six times, was an All-Star five times, won two Gold Glove Awards, won two Silver Slugger Awards, and came in second in NL Rookie of the Year voting in 2007.
