Colorado Rockies prospects: Trey Killian dominates Greenville

The 22-year-old Killian continues his excellent second half with 10 strikeout performance for Tourists

Trey Killian's second half has gone from interesting to notable after a 10 strikeout outing against the Greenville Drive on Sunday night. It's Killian's second 10 K night in the last two months, the first coming on July 16, and it ups his K/9 to an above average 8.5. The right handed pitcher isn't a dazzling prospect in the Rockies system, but his numbers are tough to ignore the last two months.

His future role may be in the bullpen or as trade fodder if he continues to improve his strikeout numbers through the system. But, Killian making noise at all after being selected in the 9th round of last year's draft is a good sign of the Rockies improvement in development of pitchers. According to his pre-draft scouting report, Killian sits at around 92-94 with a strong cutter and a very strong change up.

The Tourists improved to 64-67 with the win and enter the final week of the season eight and a half games back of the final playoff spot in the SAL, and thus eliminated from contention.
