Trevor Story used improved strikeout and walk rates and maintained good power numbers en route to becoming the Rockies' top minor league position player in 2015, writes Jack Etkin for Baseball America.

Antonio Senzatela dominated much older competition to the tune of a 2.51 ERA in 25 starts for Modesto and was named the team's top minor league pitcher by the publication.

Call of Duty: Rockies and Video Games - Rockies Zingers Colorado Rockies Baseball
Richard Bergstrom talked to several Rockies players about their video game habits. Some of the players believe playing games helps them on the field. I don't know about that, but it certainly can't hurt them away from it. Better to be inside playing video games and eating healthy, as the guys claim to be doing, rather than out on the town drinking and doing whatever else dudes in their 20s tend to do.
