Interview With Rolando Fernandez - Senior Director of International Scouting

Rosell Herrera is the latest Latin stud brought in by Rolando Fernandez.

It doesn't seem right not to have something new up at Purple Row on a July evening does it?  Hankering for some Rockies scoop, are ya?  We have you covered.

Before last night's Rookie level Casper Ghosts game, Rockies senior director of international scouting Rolando Fernandez sat down for a five-minute radio interview with Casper Ghosts play-by-play man Adam Spolane on AM 1400 ESPN.  Mr. Spolane was gracious enough to grant me audio of that interview to share.  

For those uninitiated, Fernandez is responsible for signing some of the biggest names in the organization - Ubaldo Jimenez, Jhoulys Chacin, Esmil Rogers, Franklin Morales, Manuel Corpas and the hot prospect down in Casper right now, shortstop Rosell Herrera.  Fernandez talked with Spolane about Herrera, as well as Julian Yan and a couple longer tenured players in Casper - Jose Rivera and the Aussie David Kandilas.

A very big thank you to Adam Spolane, who you can follow on twitter.  He is in his third year calling games for the Ghosts, though this is his first calling the home games.
