Colorado Rockies top prospect season review: The Depth
By Tyler Paddor
34) Juan Brito, 2B, ACL: .295/.406/.432, 126 wRC+, 13.8 BB%, 19.3 K%, 3 HR, 5 SB
A lesser-known Dominican prospect, Brito has impressive bat-to-ball skills and great plate discipline.
He’s not overly fast and doesn’t have a lot of power but Brito’s hit tool is one of the best in the organization.

35) Jordy Vargas, RHP, DSL: 1.30 ERA, 2.55 FIP, 0.98 WHIP, 32.4 K%, 11.3 BB%
Vargas joins Juarez and Pinto as international prospects who jump-started their ascent up Rockies prospect boards.
There’s not much info on the young right-hander but his proclivity to get swings and misses and limit damage jumps off the page.

36) Gavin Hollowell, RHP, A: 2.45 ERA, 2.82 FIP, 0.91 WHIP, 35.6 K%, 5.7 BB%
The top relief prospect on my list, Hollowell has been dominant since his 6th-round draft selection in 2019.
Both his fastball and slider can be devastating, showing a future as a potential closer.

37) Robby Martin, OF, ACL/A: .256/.352/.436, 108 wRC+, 9.9 BB%, 26.4 K%, 3 HR, 3 SB
The 3rd hitter selected by the Rockies this year, Martin has quality tools across the board. There’s some swing and miss concern going forward but he has everyday potential.
