    Rockies Mailbag: Colorado's most exciting prospects in spring training

    Pose a Rockies — or MLB — related question for the Rockies Mailbag. Patrick, with spring training approaching, who among the Rockies' top prospects are you most excited to watch in person in Arizona? Additionally, are there any surprise players (Brenton Doyle, Ryan Rolison, etc.) that you think could break camp with the big-league team for opening day? One of the best things about spring training is watching the young players and talking to the coaches and players about them.

    Colorado Rockies prospects: No. 16, Dyan Jorge

    When Jorge signed with the Rockies in January 2022, it was a culmination of a two-year wait for the Cuban shortstop. After a few months spent establishing residence outside of Cuba, Jorge was deemed eligible to sign in early 2020. As such, Jorge was forced to wait until January 2022 to receive a $2.8 million bonus from the Rockies — the largest such bonus they've ever handed out to a Latin American amateur free agent. For reference, that signing bonus is more than late-first round picks in the US draft get, indicating a prospect has athleticism and potential to be a big league contributor.

This week, let's take a look at some other changes to the roster and schedule that can benefit the Rockies and have a 14-win improvement over last year. With the new MLB season comes a new system for scheduling games in 2023.
