#6 Jake Bird — No. 29 on the MLB.com Rockies top 30 prospect list

Jake Bird has been extremely solid coming out of the Double-A Hartford Yard Goats bullpen and has been put in some tough situations that he’s inherited or created for himself. However, no matter how tough the situation, he’s found a way to get out of it with minimal damage created. His 10 games pitched along with a good era at 2.21 is enough to earn himself a spot on my list.

#5 PJ Poulin Unranked

PJ Poulin is a left handed pitcher for the Spokane Indians, the High A affiliate of the Colorado club. For those who don’t know, Poulin was an 11th-round pick back in 2018 and has been dicing up batters left and right since arriving on the scene. In 15 games this season, the left-handed reliever has posted a 1.84 ERA and 0.82 WHIP in 14.2 innings pitched. He’s also struck out 28 while walking just six.

#4 Nick Bush Unranked

Nick Bush might be one of the most underrated prospects in the entire organization. He was an 8th round pick back in 2018 and has provided very good starts throughout his professional career. In 6 starts in 2021 he’s 2-1 with a very solid 2.81 ERA and 38 strikeouts in 28.1 innings pitched. Nick also carries a modest .240 batting average against him.
