Colorado Rockies: Working out a trade to send Trevor Story to the Texas Rangers
Rangers prospect Sherten Apostel could also be on the Rockies MLB roster.
Apostel, 22, is a corner infielder who also made his debut for the Rangers, albeit briefly, in 2020. His power (55) and arm (65) but his hit tool (45) hasn’t come around quite yet. However, as MLB.com mentions, he’s still getting used to his 6’4″, 235 pound frame. He also pitched in high school (and had a fastball into the 90s) but the Rangers don’t plan on using him as a pitcher. The Rockies, however, could decide to. He is the Rangers #11 prospect.
White, 21, is the lone guy that wouldn’t likely be in the majors or Triple-A for the Rockies. He was the Rangers second-round draft pick in 2018. However, he still hasn’t pitched in a pro-game. He didn’t pitch for the Rangers in 2018, had Tommy John surgery in 2019, and didn’t pitch in 2020 due to the pandemic.
However, on a scouting scale, all four of his pitches are average or above and his control is as well. MLB.com projects him as a second or third starter once he gets some more innings and development under his belt in the minors. After the Tommy John surgery, he was throwing 96 on his fastball so after his surgery is further in the rearview mirror, his velocity could go higher. He is currently ranked as the Rangers #19 prospect.
