Colorado Rockies prospect Drew Weeks hits two homers for the Hartford Yard Goats

Colorado Rockies minor league news and notes from July 19, 2017.

Even with two clubs having the day off on Wednesday, it was a busy day in the Colorado Rockies’ farm system. In the six total games played. Rockies’ affiliates went 4-2 in spite of a lack of performance from their top prospects. Four of the top 13 PuRPs were in action, but went a combined 1-for-14 with five strikeouts. Instead, it was lesser known prospects such as Double-A Hartford’s Drew Weeks who carried the day. Weeks, a 24-year-old outfielder drafted in the seventh round in 2014, went 3-for-4 with a pair of homers plus a walk and a stolen base in the Yard Goats’ 12-8 win over the Bowie Baysox. It was the second multi-homer game for Weeks in his last five games as he improved his slash line on the year to .267/.338/.448, his best mark since the 2015 season in Low-A Asheville. After struggling in 2016 to the tune of .233/.288/.347, Weeks will need some more days like this to work his way back into being a legitimate prospect, but this is certainly a good start.
