  1. Josh Rutledge is seriously undervalued, not only on this list but on most prospects’ lists. Rutledge will be a solid defensive second baseman and will be the gritty, hard-nosed, solid hit tool player that winners usually have on their team.

    Wilin Rosario is a high reward-high risk prospect who will likely settle into being a low-level starter or solid backup with pop.

    Chad Bettis has no. 2 starter upside and should be no less than a quality no. 3.

    Kent Matthes, if healthy again, will show well at Double-A Tulsa in 2012 and be in Triple-A by the end of the season.

    Joe Gardner will become a solid reliever and maybe spot starter at the major league level. He was a nice piece in the Ubaldo Jimenez trade.

    Colorado Rockies’ Prospects

  2. I am definitely concerned with the Rockies’ staff in the area of pitching development. Many times have I seen promising pitching prospects stall and burn out somewhere within the farm system. Every championship team has at least a solid pitching staff, and the unless O’Dowd becomes a quick spender, the Rockies will need to harvest the pitching talent from within.

    The Ubaldo trade was sort of a cheat over this roadblock, as the Rockies acquired already great developed prospects…

    My question being… where is Alex White on this list. Is he not even considered a top 15 in the organization?? I would hope he would be above the likes Friedrich and Matzek.

  3. Thanks for the great lists, one question, what do you think of Edwar Cabrera? He posted a sub-3 fip over A and high A with a K/9 over 10 but did so at age 25.

  4. White pitched 51.1 innings in the Majors and the cut off for rookie eligibility is 50 IP so he’s no longer a “prospect.” Were he eligible, I would probably put him between Bettis and Rosario.

  5. Cabrera JUST missed the cut.
