Outfielder Benny Montgomery: The Colorado Rockies Low-A affiliate Fresno Grizzlies
Since Benny Montgomery was drafted in the first round of 2021, he will almost certainly spend the entire season in Low-A Fresno, as Veen and Romo did in 2021.
Montgomery hit well in limited action in the Arizona Complex League but the Rockies need to see him at a full-season level and that will almost certainly come at Fresno.
Left-handed pitcher Ryan Rolison: Triple-A Albuquerque
Ryan Rolison is on the 40-man roster so he is different than the other prospects because he (and the next three players on this list) can’t play in the minors until the lockout is done. Rolison dealt with appendicitis in 2021 so he only appeared in 10 starts at the Triple-A level.
That and his 5.91 ERA there indicate that he should be there to start the season but, perhaps, he will start the season in the majors.
First baseman/third baseman Elehuris Montero: Triple-A Albuquerque
Elehuris Montero is also on the 40-man roster so he could start the season later than he hoped. He spent most of the 2021 season (92 games) in Double-A Hartford before he was promoted to Triple-A Albuquerque (28 games) so he will be there to start his season.
However, he could be in the majors to end the season if his bat continues to develop.
Shortstop Ezequiel Tovar: High-A Spokane
Ezequiel Tovar started his season in Low-A Fresno but unlike Zac Veen and Drew Romo, he was promoted to Spokane toward the end of the season for 32 games.
However, he struggled at the plate in Spokane after he hit well in Fresno. Like Romo, he’s great defensively but the bat may need some work.
