The halls of Cooperstown will have new residents, but Rockies fans must be wondering if Larry Walker will appear on the ballot next year.

The Baseball Hall of Fame Class of 2015 will be announced Tuesday at noon MT. While Larry Walker won't come anywhere near the 75 percent of ballots cast needed for enshrinement, the Colorado Rockies great does need to reach 5 percent to make it onto the 2016 ballot.

How close will our balloting be to the actual results? Randy Johnson and Pedro Martinez should be locks and Piazza is borderline to appear on 75 percent of ballots. Walker, who first appeared on the ballot in 2011, started out in the 20 percent range and fell to 10.2 percent last year. He'll be lucky to reach double digits this time.

Moving along ... a few notable ex-Rockies who will start to appear on the ballot the next few years include: Mike Hampton (2016), Brian Fuentes, Kevin Millwood and Jamie Moyer (2018), and Roy Oswalt and the only guy who really matters, Todd Helton (2019).

When: Noon MT on Tuesday, Jan. 6, 2015 (coverage began at 9 a.m.)
How: MLB Network and MLB.com
