What a day for Bridich’s acquisitions on the mound. German Marquez, Yency Almonte, and Wander Cabrera all produced stellar starts as the Rockies affiliates went 6-2 on Wednesday.

Marquez continued his stellar first year in the Rockies farm system. In his second start for Triple-A Albuquerque, he went six innings, allowed two hits, two runs, three walks, and six strikeouts over 95 pitches. Marquez has a 2.92 ERA across 148 innings, already surpassing his innings total from last year and isn’t showing any signs of slowing down.

Almonte has been a revelation this year. He threw a seven-inning, complete game shutout in the first game of a double-header in Bowie for the Yard Goats. Almonte was acquired from the Chicago White Sox in the Tommy Kahnle trade and pitched well in the launching pad that is the Cal League.

Wander Cabrera missed the PuRP’s list this time around but has quickly proven he should be considered among the organizations Top 30 Prospects. Cabrera is 6-0 with a 2.40 ERA in 11 starts this year for the DSL Rockies and continued that Wednesday. He went five innings, allowed three baserunners, and struck out five. Cabrera was acquired from the Chicago Cubs in the Rex Brothers deal.
