Colorado Rockies Top 30


By Tracy Ringolsby

There is a familiar face atop the Rockies 2020 Top 10, one that both the Rockies and fans hope is a soon a long-term cog in their infield for the years to come.

But beyond that?

A thin Rockies farm system has as many questions as answers.

Colorado ended 2019 ranked at the back of our organization talent rankings. The top of the system is flush with infielders, but several project to make their long-term home at first base. Still, there are reasons for optimism -- namely Ryan Rolison's progression and the strong pro debuts of their top two 2019 draft picks.
