Who could be the next player to make his Major League Baseball debut with the Colorado Rockies? Let’s look at three very real possibilities.
For each of these players, it’s likely more a question of “when” than “if.” They have not only proven themselves in spring training but also at various levels of the Rockies minor leagues before COVID-19 wiped out the 2020 minor league season and their chances for their advancement.

Based on some of the things we heard and saw at this year’s spring training, as well as the areas of need for the Rockies, we believe these three players will make their big league debuts in 2021. Sure, there could well be more than these three debuts this season, but these are the three who feel like pretty safe bets.
By the way, did you know that five players made their MLB debut with the Rockies during last season’s shortened schedule? Those five were Ryan Castellani (pictured above, August 8 at Seattle), Ashton Goudeau (August 19 against Houston), Antonio Santos (September 1 against San Francisco), José Mujica (September 8 at San Diego), and Tommy Doyle (September 23 at San Francisco).
