Number 22- Weiss

Walt Weiss and Young were double-play partners from 1994-1997 and when Weiss became the Rockies manager, Young was also on his coaching staff. Now, they are both on Brian Snitker‘s coaching staff in Atlanta.

In his playing career as a Rockie, Weiss hit .266/.375/.347 with an OPS+ of 77 and a WAR of 3.8.

Terry Shumpert wore #22 for four of the five seasons that he was a Rockie but he did not play as well as Weiss did in his tenure so Weiss was the easy choice.

Number 23- Johnson

Charles Johnson only played two seasons with the Rockies and while two others wore the uniform for a longer tenure, Johnson was the best.

In his two seasons as a Rockie, he hit .233/.334/.443 with an OPS+ of 89 with a WAR of 2.1. However, those two seasons were good enough to get him a spot on our list for the top five catchers in Rockies history.
