The Rockies have the opposite problem from the Dodgers; all of their minor league farm teams play in good hitting environments (as does the big club, of course). I think that makes it tough for the Rox to develop pitching prospects, for two reasons.
1. It’s hard for them to get innings under their belts, because they have to throw more pitches to get through a typical five-inning effort.
When the A-ball team was in Salem and the AA team was in Carolina, at least there was some semblance of normality to the environment.
I’m not especially impressed with this group beyond the top 2. I like Stewart’s chances of rebounding (he finished very well), and I think Tulowitzki is going to be a stud. I’ll be surprised if the Rockies get anything special from the rest of the top 10 - although I suppose if Nelson gets his head screwed on straight he could develop.
