Kevin Goldstein released his list of the top eleven Rockies prospects and there’s definitely some talent at the top of the list. At number one is third baseman Nolan Arenado. He had a really nice year last year as a 20 year old at High-A and it also helps that the Rockies traded Ian Stewart. Double-A is most likely where he’s headed but we could see this future star in a Rockies’ uniform in 2012.
Number two is the Indians 2010 first round pick, Drew Pomeranz. The left hander was one of the keys in the Ubaldo Jimenez trade and he spent part of the season at High-A and part of the season at Double-A. He’s another guy who’s close and he could actually compete for a rotation spot with the Rockies but short of that, he’ll be at Triple-A in 2012.
Number three is Wilin Rosario. With Ramon Hernandez being signed, Rosario will see most of his time at Triple-A in 2012 but he has some power and he’ll definitely force the Rockies hand if Hernandez struggles. Chad Bettis (RHP) and Tim Wheeler (OF) round out the top five.
