Colorado Rockies Prospects: Forrest Wall hits home run in win

New, comments

Rockies prospect and farm report for games from May 1, 2017

Forrest Wall’s second season in the California League is off to a bit of a better start than his first. Wall is up to a .299 batting average after a 2-for-4 performance in Lancaster’s 4-3 win on Monday night.

Wall hit a solo home run to lead off a three run seventh inning for the JetHawks, his third of the season, and continues to show an improvement at the plate in his repeat High-A year.

Wall’s prospect shine wore off after a rough 2016 but the Rockies moving him to center field and around the infield to make sure he gets ABs shows they still believe in the 21-year-old as a future contributor.

Lancaster was also aided by a Brian Mundell home run and a two run single from Wes Rogers to give them a second straight one run victory. The JetHawks improved to 12-13 with the win.
