s Rangers’ system in 2018."The Detroit Tigers selected right-handed pitcher Reed Garrett with the fifth pick in the Rule 5 draft on Thursday. Garrett http://www.chicagocubsteamshop.com/authentic-david-ross-jersey , 25, is a former 16th round pick who pitched in the Texas Rangers’ system in 2018. He managed a 2.04 ERA in 61 2鈦? innings between Double-A Frisco and Triple-A Round Rock, and struck out nearly a batter per inning.Baseball America’s JJ Cooper described Garrett as “a high-octane bullpen arm.” He sports “a mid-90s fastball and a hard slider,” and was good about keeping the ball in the strike zone last season (he only walked 20 batters, a 6.8 percent rate).As a Rule 5 selection, Garrett will have to stay on the Tigers’ 25-man roster for the entire 2019 season. The Tigers can trade for his rights at any point — they did so back in 2012 when they acquired lefthander Kyle Lobstein in the Rule 5 draft — but can also just bite the bullet and keep Garrett on the roster for the entire year.The Tigers did exactly this last season, when they took outfielder Victor Reyes with the first pick in the 2017 Rule 5 draft. Reyes hit .222/.239/.288 in 219 plate appearances for the Tigers last season. He was largely relegated to a pinch-running role early on, but showed a bit more promise as he got a little more playing time in the second half of the year.“Wait, tell me more about Garrett!”The fine folks at Baseball Census have what is easily the most comprehensive review of Garrett’s profile available.Anything more we say about him would just be lifted straight from that article, so go check it out.“But wait Andre Dawson Jersey , there’s more!”The Tigers also selected outfielder Tyler Hill in the Triple-A portion of the Rule 5 draft. Hill is a 22-year-old outfielder who previously played in the Boston Red Sox system. He hit .254/.348/.312 in 124 games at High-A Salem last season, where he primarily shifted between left and right field. He played 13 games in center field, and also played a handful of games there in Single-A ball in 2017. He seemingly has the speed to hack it in center, with 42 stolen bases in 2017 and another 27 in 2018. Hill was a 19th round pick in 2014.Update: Hill has been traded to the Yankees so now we hate his face. Rockies young core and potential stars will need to play big roles in 2019 to keep team in playoff contention"WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Scaling the RocksPebble ReportRockpileRockies Game ThreadsRockies Fan ExperienceRockpileYoung Rockies will need to fill big shoes in 2019New,73commentsRockies news and links for Sunday, October 21, 2018fans that particularly center around what’s in store for the team’s youthful talent as we look ahead to 2019. There are tentatively three or four critical positions (second base, right field, bullpen) up for grabs next season that these young Rockies players could fill—the real question is if they’ll be given the opportunity to do so.Additionally, a great question is asked about the Rockies television deal and if or when it will be improved upon. According to FanGraphs Ron Santo Jersey , the Rockies literally have one of the worst possible TV contracts, as far as revenue for the team is concerned, and will have to wait until after 2020 to renegotiate. When that time comes, they should definitely see a bump in revenue to spend on free agents or resigning valuable young players, but will they still be in their current contention window when the 2021 season arrives?Rockies Insider: Assessing the impact of Seunghwan Oh’s potential return to South Korea | Denver PostKyle Newman of the Denver Post offers a quick glimpse at the budding Seunghwan Oh situation and how it could potentially affect the Rockies’ bullpen already in flux. First reported on Wednesday, Oh is considering returning to his home country of South Korea to pitch in the KBO again so that he can be closer to his family and not so reliant on his translator, Eugene Koo.Oh was a major stalwart to the back end of the bullpen as the Rockies earned a playoff berth in 2018, and losing him would be a major hit to the club who may already be without Adam Ottavino next year as he enters free agency. Oh posted a 2.53 ERA in 25 games for the Rox this season, and if his beleaguered colleagues Jake McGee and Bryan Shaw don’t improve in 2019, Jeff Bridich will have to spend more money on the bullpen yet again to back up a starting rotation that is built to keep the Rockies in contention.Colorado Rockies: How would you change Coors Field’s dimensions? | Rox PileIn an article that might make Brad Ausmus’ and other Coors Field critics’ heads explode http://www.chicagocubsteamshop.com/authentic-david-ross-jersey , Jake Shapiro of Rox Pile has some fun with wondering how the Rockies could change field dimensions at 20th and Blake. He offers three interesting possibilities, including the option of moving home plate outwards to expand foul territory and shrink the expansive outfield that has given Coors its hitter-friendly reputation—I did not know this, but apparently it’s a change that Dick Monfort has actually considered in the past. Take a look, and you might also imagine how Coors would play if there was no center field fence at all...Rumors: Grandal, Miley, Morton, Brantley, Myers | MLB.comMLB.com has all of your hot stove needs warming up on the back burner, and in this post takes a look at the handful of teams that will be in the hunt for a new catcher this offseason—including the Rockies. In particular, Yasmani Grandal and Wilson Ramos are highlighted as possible acquisitions Ryne Sandberg Jersey , and the pros and cons of each veteran backstop are examined.Despite both having career years in terms of OPS+, it’s interesting to note that Ramos, because of his trade from Tampa Bay to Philadelphia, would not cost a team a first-round draft pick due to a qualifying offer, while Grandal would. Who is your preference to complete the battery for the Rockies next year? Anyone not discussed here?
