The Colorado Rockies will get multiple players that will help their MLB team this year
Whether it is in a deal for Trevor Story, Jon Gray, Mychal Givens, or others, the Colorado Rockies will be looking to replenish their farm system and that should be their main concern.
After all, the Rockies Triple-A and Double-A teams have shown that they don’t have a ton to offer by their records.
Both the Triple-A Albuquerque Isotopes and Double-A Hartford Yard Goats have the worst record in their leagues (the Triple-A West and Double-A Northeast) and the second-worst record in each level.
The Rockies current talent resides in High-A Spokane and Low-A Fresno, where the teams have records of 25-30 and 35-20.
The Rockies haven’t been good at the major league level either, as their record indicates, so they need to get some more talent at the upper-minor league level and/or some talent at the MLB level with four to six years of team control.
In the Arenado deal, the Rockies got Austin Gomber, who pitched very well for the Rockies before hitting the IL but if Story, Cron, Givens, and, perhaps, Gray and others are traded, the Rockies will get multiple pieces that will help them at the major league level at some point in 2021.
If that’s not the case, they either need to help the Rockies at the beginning of 2022 or the Rockies will have pulled off a bad trade, which is something that they must be cautious about in the next few weeks because the trades (or lack of trades) will give fans a better look at the Rockies in 2022 and beyond.
