Top 30 Colorado Rockies Prospects To Target In Dynasty

Our Top 30 Organizational Prospect Rankings move on to the NL West with a dive into the top 30 Colorado Rockies prospects to target in dynasty baseball leagues. For years the Rockies have been a questionable organization for dynasty managers to draft from but within the last two seasons, it appears things are changing. With four prospects currently in the top 100 in the Fantrax Prospect Rankings, the Rockies are building a solid team from the ground up. Let’s dive into the top 10 prospects in the Rockies system and be sure to look over all 30 prospects down below.

Top 10 Rockies Prospects

Adael Amador, SS

(69 GP, .287/.380/.495, 12 HR, 55 R, 46 RBI, 15 SB)

The top prospect in the Rockies organization is Adael Amador, a shortstop who had a big season in 2023 playing the majority of the season in High-A Spokane. In 54 games in Spokane, Amador slashed .302/.392/.514, with nine home runs, 46 runs scored, 35 RBIs, and 12 stolen bases. The plate discipline was on full display as Amador walked 12% while only striking out 10% of the time. The Rockies promoted Amador to Double-A Hartford to finish out the year and in 10 games Amador struggled to get anything going with the bat.

For dynasty managers, Adael Amador is a solid prospect who will get on base and should hit for a high average. When it comes to the power I would not expect more than 15-18 HRs but he should be able to steal 20-plus bases.

Yanquiel Fernandez, OF

(117 GP, .265/.313/.486, 25 HR, 70 R, 92 RBI, 1 SB)

The rise of Yanquiel Fernandez through the Rockies system has been swift, something we don’t typically see with this organization. In 2023, Fernandez ascended three levels, starting in Low-A Fresno and finishing in Double-A Hartford. In 117 combined games, Fernandez slashed .265/.313/.486 with 25 home runs, 92 RBIs, and one stolen base. Across 58 games in High-A Spokane Fernandez displayed a solid 17.9% strikeout rate before going up to Double-A Hartford and seeing it jump to 32.9% in 56 games.

For Yanquiel Fernandez to be successful he will need to get the strikeout rate back down below 20%. The plus power of Fernandez is undeniable and could project as a 30-plus home run bat in Coors Field.

Jordan Beck, OF

(126 GP, .271/.364/.503, 25 HR, 84 R, 91 RBI, 20 SB)

One of the best power bats in the Rockies organization, Jordan Beck capped off a solid season by ascending from High-A Spokane up to Double-A Hartford. While in Spokane Beck slashed .292/.378/.566 with 20 home runs, 72 RBIs, and 11 stolen bases in 76 games. Beck continued to display solid plate discipline walking 12.6% while striking out just 20.8% of the time. After the promotion to Double-A Hartford, the numbers took a bit of a hit. In 50 games with the Yard Goats, Beck slashed .240/.342/.406 with five home runs, 22 runs scored, 19 RBIs, and nine stolen bases. The walk percentage remained high at 13.5% while the strikeout rate climbed to 31.8% in 223 plate appearances.

For Dynasty Beck is a must-target for me as he has the potential to be a 30-HR bat that can also get you 20 stolen bases early on in his career. The bat is special as well, hitting for average and showing a propensity to get on base will be key for Beck.

Sterlin Thompson, OF/3B/2B

(94 GP, .293/.376/.487, 14 HR, 56 R, 56 RBI, 17 SB)

The former Florida Gator had a solid season in 2023, ascending from High-A Spokane to finish his season in Double-A Hartford. Combined, Thompson slashed .293/.376/.487 with 14 home runs, 56 RBIs, and 17 stolen bases in 94 games. The last 34 games in Hartford were not the best for Thompson as he slashed just .238/.333/.429. The Rockies then sent the 22-year-old to the Arizona Fall League where in 21 games he slashed .338/.460/.475 with 13 RBIs, and seven stolen bases.

For dynasty managers, Sterlin Thompson is a bit tricky because he has played at second and third since coming to the Rockies and was an outfielder back in Florida. The power might not get above 20 home runs for Thompson and even the stolen bases will only be there for the beginning of his career between 15-20. The bat is what will keep him relevant in deeper dynasty leagues until he starts to show more in terms of power.

Benny Montgomery, OF

(109 GP, .251/.336/.370, 10 HR, 62 R, 51 RBI, 18 SB)

The Rockies’ 2021 first-round selection had a solid season in 2023, playing the entire season in High-A Spokane. Across 109 games, Benny Montgomery slashed .251/.336/.370 with 10 home runs, 62 runs scored, and 51 RBIs, while swiping 18 bases. Montgomery showed a solid walk rate at 10.5% while the strikeout rate was high at 27.2%. The Rockies sent Montgomery to the Arizona Fall League where the 20-year-old slashed .333/.436/.500 with three home runs, 14 RBIs, and 10 stolen bases across 19 games.

Benny Montgomery looked sharp in the AFL when I saw him. The power is starting to come and I believe there is probably a 20-HR season coming before he cracks the major leagues. The bat should continue to be a plus tool for Montgomery. Pair that with double-digit steals and he can be valuable in 15-team leagues and up.

Zac Veen, OF

(46 GP, .209/.304/.308, 2 HR, 15 R, 24 RBI, 22 SB)

The Rockies’ first pick in the 2020 MLB draft dealt with an injury resulting in season-ending surgery to repair his left ECU tendon in 2023. Before the injury, Veen started the season in Double-A Hartford where he slashed just .209/.304/.308 with two home runs and 22 stolen bases across 46 games. Despite the lackluster results, there were some positives from Veen. Across 201 plate appearances, he had an 11.4% walk rate paired with a career-low 21.4% strikeout rate.

For dynasty purposes, Veen has let many managers down so far in his climb to the majors. No doubt the stolen base upside is huge but the bat has underperformed so far. The projected power has just not materialized either. He might just be a fourth outfielder for the Rockies long term, bringing speed to the base paths if a pinch-hitter is needed.

Chase Dollander, RHP

(17 GS, 89 IP, 120 K, 12.1 K/9, 1.270 WHIP, 4.75 ERA At Tennessee)

Going into the 2023 college baseball season, Chase Dollander was in the conversation to go first overall coming off a strong season at Tennessee the year prior. Unfortunately, his season did not go the way we all hoped it would. Regardless Dollander showed the prolific swing and miss potential, striking out 120 batters across 89 innings (good for a 12.1K/9) in the very tough-to-pitch SEC. Control was what hurt Dollander the most as in 2022 Dollander had a solid 1.5 BB/9 but that ballooned to a 3.0 BB/9 last season.

Chase Dollander features an impressive fastball that tops out at 100 mph while the slider and change-up are also plus pitch offerings. For Dynasty managers Dollander will stick as a starter as he makes his pro debut in 2024 and has the upside to be a front-of-the-rotation arm if he can get the walks back to 2022 production. The downside is that he is in a difficult organization that doesn’t have a great track record of developing pitchers and the home ballpark can be unforgiving at times.

Hunter Goodman, C/1B/OF

(106 GP, .259/.338/.580, 34 HR, 68 R, 111 RBI)

Hunter Goodman capped off the 2023 season with his second 30-plus HR season in the minors and a call to the major leagues. Across two levels in 2023 (Double-A and Triple-A), Goodman slashed .259/.338/.580 with 34 home runs, 68 runs scored and 111 RBIs in 106 games. Goodman really hit his stride once he got to Triple-A Albuquerque, slashing .371/.418/.903 with nine home runs in just 15 games, earning him the call-up. Once with the Rockies, Goodman slashed just .200/.247/.386 with one home run and 17 RBIs.

For Dynasty managers, Goodman is interesting because he has played in the minor leagues as a catcher and has since moved to first base and outfield making him an intriguing target in deeper dynasty leagues. The power is plus for Goodman and if he is able to play every day (or close to it), you can bank on 25 home runs or even 30 in that home ballpark.

Warming Bernabel, 3B

(91 GP, .236/.282/.367, 8 HR, 39 R, 36 RBI, 2 SB)

Warming Bernabel is a name that was popping up in dynasty rankings during the 2022 season where he slashed .313/.370/.499 at Low-A Fresno and High-A Spokane respectively. The 2023 season was not as kind to Warming as he played the majority of the season in Double-A Hartford. Across 83 games Bernabel slashed just .225/.270/.338 with six home runs, 30 runs scored, 28 RBIs, and two stolen bases. The strikeout rate jumped 6% over 2022 for Bernabel and his BABIP of .271 was down considerably from his previous seasons.

I would bank on a bounce-back season from Warming Bernabel in 2024. The solid plate approach and the potential to get back to being a 20-HR, 20-SB threat at third base makes him interesting to dynasty managers.

Cole Carrigg, SS/OF

(36 GP, .350/.408/.600, 5 HR, 32 R, 29 RBI, 13 SB)

Selected in the second round of the 2023 MLB draft out of San Diego State, Cole Carrigg hit the ground running in his pro debut. Carrigg played the majority of his 36 games at Low-A where he slashed .326/.376/.554 with three home runs, 19 runs scored, 16 RBIs, and six stolen bases in 23 games. Carrigg walked 6.9% while only striking out 19.8% of the time. It’s unclear if the Rockies will play Carrigg at SS/OF long term as he was a catcher coming out of San Diego State.

Carrigg displayed solid bat-to-ball skills dating back to his days with the Aztecs where he slashed .303/.357/.458 in his final season. He is a solid prospect to have in your minor league system in 15-team leagues and up as a high average and OBP bat that can chip in 10-18 stolen bases early in his career.
