Former Rockies 1st-round pick Riley Pint retires

Right-handed pitcher Riley Pint, who has battled injuries and control problems since being drafted by the Rockies fourth overall in 2016, has decided to retire, Rockies assistant general manager of player development Zach Wilson said.

Pint, 23, capable of triple-digits fastballs when selected out of St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Overland Park, Kansas, was 1-0 with a 3.38 ERA in 10 games at Class A Spokane this season when he came to the decision.

Pint dealt with forearm stiffness and a strained oblique in 2017, and he struggled with his control. At Class A Asheville, he walked 59 in 93 innings pitched. As Pint’s career progressed, the Rockies shifted him to relief work full-time in 2019. This year, the overall results were solid, but control was still an issue—17 strikeouts and 10 walks in 10 2/3 innings pitched.

Wilson said the door is open for Pint to return, and the club supports him no matter what direction he takes.
