First baseman Sean Bouchard
Sean Bouchard spent part of May on the injured list but before and after for the Isotopes, Bouchard has been in company with Wynton Bernard as the team’s best hitter.
Bouchard, 26, is another San Diego product (born and raised in San Diego but went to college at UCLA) and was drafted by Colorado in the ninth round of the 2017 draft.
This is his first season in Triple-A and he is hitting .302/.407/.611 with nine homers, 27 RBI, and seven stolen bases.
C.J. Cron and fellow Isotopes teammate Elehuris Montero have him blocked at first base but Albuquerque also has played him in left and right field and in Hartford last year, he played a little bit of third base.
Even then, though, Kris Bryant (when he’s healthy), Charlie Blackmon, Ryan McMahon, and C.J. Cron are about as cemented in their positions as any player on the Rockies is going to be.
But for a prospect that still isn’t in the top 30 for the team, let alone most top 50 lists, Bouchard could be a name that Rockies fans see come up later this year, depending on who they trade and/or decide to move on from. If not, Bouchard could even be a trade chip himself.
