Rockies promote shortstop prospect Trevor Story to Triple-A
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(7/1/15) The Rockies have promoted shortstop Trevor Story to Triple-A Alburquerque. Story was drafted in the first round (45th overall) by the Rockies in 2011. In 69 games with Double-A New Britain this season, Story posted a .281/.373/.523 line with 10 home runs, 20 doubles and 40 RBI. He also stole 15 bases.
"He's earned the opportunity for a greater challenge," Rockies general manager Jeff Bridich said, per The Denver Post.
Story has spent much of his professional career at shortstop, but he has also seen some time at third base and second base. But the Rockies still view him as a shortstop when all is said and done.
"Some of that remains to be seen. You don't truly know until you see the guy do it at this level," Bridich said. "But we drafted him as a shortstop and he's continued to play shortstop in the minor leagues. ... At this point, we absolutely believe he can be a major-league shortstop."
Rockies option Chad Bettis, Ben Paulsen to minors
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(3/22/15) The Rockies optioned three players and reassigned nine other to their minor league camp on Sunday.
Optioned to the minors were
RHP Chad Bettis, who is converting from relief to a starting pitcher. He didn't allow a run in five spring innings. "He's in a good place," manager Walt Weiss said, per the Denver Post. "There's some clarity in his role and what he needs to do. It was a positive camp for him."
First baseman Ben Paulsen, who had a .108 spring average. "He hasn't had a great spring," Weiss said. "But that doesn't diminish what I think of the guy."
LHP Chris Rusin, who had a 6.43 spring ERA.
Reassigned to minor league camp were: LHP Kraig Sitton, LHP Aaron Laffey, LHP John Lannan, RHP Jair Jurrjens, RHP Brett Marshall, catcher Audry Perez, infielders Trevor Story and Omar Quintanilla, and outfielder Roger Bernadina.
