That's no lie. Who the hell are these guys? I really didn't know. I'm no prospector, and I don't have my finger on the pulse of up-and-coming players. But seriously, let's see who my team got for a perennial MVP candidate...
Austin Gomber: 27 years old, 104 IP in the majors, 7-3 with 3.72 ERA and 1.41 WHIP. Respectable, but.
Mateo Gil: 20 years old, 2 seasons in the minors. 257/.327/.373 slash and can't steal a base. Pass.
Elehuris Montero: 22 years old, 6'-3" third baseman. Hmm! But alas, little power (32 HR in 1519 minor league PA) and .751 total OPS.
Tony Locey: Only 22 with 17 IP in minors. Not a good 17 IP but way too soon to tell. Still...
That is the most Rockies trade in Rockies history. No wonder they have never won their division in 26 years and counting.
I’m honestly in the same boat of not knowing much about the prospects, but I do know that Gomber has the potential to be very good.
