Colorado Rockies prospects: Yency Almonte earns the win in his Double-A debut for Hartford Yard Goats

Colorado Rockies farm report for Friday, August 12.

Rockies prospect Yency Almonte pitches for the Modesto Nuts.

Yency Almonte pitched six solid innings in his first start for the Double-A Hartford Yard Goats Thursday night. Almonte allowed three earned runs on five hits and two walks while striking out only two.

Almonte’s debut got off to a rocky start when the first three batters all reached on hits, resulting in two runs. Almonte quickly settled in and retired the next nine batters that he faced before allowing a walk to lead off the fourth inning.

Almonte’s dominating High-A performance in Modesto this year catapulted him up the midseason prospect rankings. If he can duplicate that performance in Double-A to finish the season expect that momentum to continue.

If you haven’t seen him pitch yet be sure to watch our video of Almonte on the Purple Row YouTube channel.
