Yency Almonte dices up Binghamton to close Hartford’s first half

MLB: Spring Training-Seattle Mariners at Colorado Rockies Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports

Yency “Showtime” Almonte is quickly turning into one of the more exciting prospects in the Rockies system. After his performance Sunday night, that hype will only grow. Almonte threw six strong innings, striking out five, and only allowing one unearned run. Almonte’s ERA dropped to 1.98 on the season and he continues to impress with a plus fastball and strong command.

Showtime’s first half was limited slightly by injury but the powerful right hander’s prospect shine has only continued to glisten. Bobby DeMuro has a couple reports on Almonte for both Purple Row and Today’s Knuckleball, Almonte’s power fastball, slider combo is exactly the kind of pitcher Bridich has targeted recently and exactly the kind of pitcher that has seen success this year in Coors Field.

The Goats picked up Almonte’s performance with a big outburst offensively. Friend of the Brand Dillon Thomas went 4-for-5 with three RBI and Brian Mundell got his average back over .300 with a 2-for-4 day.

The Goats 7-3 win was their 38th on the season, they now sit 11 under .500. Other news and notes from the affiliates are below.
