The Jameson Hannah trade will be the best trade the Rockies made since the German Marquez trade
The best trade that the Colorado Rockies have made in recent memory is the Corey Dickerson trade. While Rockies fans were upset about it at the time, it ended up paying off for the Rockies in a big way as the deal netted them their current ace, German Marquez.
The Rockies are not known for their trades but the trade they made this offseason may be another one that pays dividends for them.
They acquired Robert Stephenson and Jameson Hannah from the Cincinnati Reds in return for Jeff Hoffman and Case Williams, who was the Rockies 4th round draft pick in 2020.
Hannah, 23, caught Rockies fans by storm in spring training, though. Alongside some spectacular defensive plays, he was excellent at the plate, hitting .357/.438/.571 with a homer, five RBI, and two stolen bases.
Despite not playing above Advanced-A ball, he will likely be in Triple-A Albuquerque once the minor league season begins in May and, perhaps, he will be in the Rockies outfield by the end of the year.
He also is the Rockies #13 prospect, according to MLB.com
If he can continue what he did in spring training, he will be a force in the Rockies outfield in the near future, and it will make the trade the best the Rockies have made since the Marquez trade and, perhaps, even better.
