NOTABLE INCLUSIONS

Top overall prospect Brendan Rodgers made the cut as expected, as did top pitching prospect Ryan Rolison despite not having pitched above high Class A. Reliever Daniel Bard, who has not pitched in the majors since 2013, is trying to make a comeback and took a big first step by making the roster.

NOTABLE EXCLUSIONS

Organizational Top 10 prospects Michael Toglia, Grant Lavigne, Ryan Vilade and Aaron Schunk were left off, but it's understandable because none has played above high Class A. More glaring is the omission of 3B/1B Colton Welker, who was passed over by lower-ranked prospects Tyler Nevin, Brian Mundell, Alan Trejo and Bret Boswell as infielders on the roster. With just 52 players announced on their initial roster, however, the Rockies still have space to add Welker and others.

PARTING THOUGHTS

The Rockies made the playoffs in 2017-18 and, despite a poor 2019, believe they are still postseason contenders. They loaded their pool with players who have Double-A and above experience, giving them a deep well of players who can help them this year. They still have eight open spots on the roster, and could add some of their omitted prospects later as they see fit.
