Colorado Rockies prospect Alejandro Requena continues to impress in Asheville

Rockies farm system news, notes and scores from July 24

20-year-old Alejandro Requena’s strong season in Single-A Asheville continued on Monday night. The Venezuelan struck out six in six innings, only allowing two earned runs on three hits.

Requena, an international free agent signing in 2013, has slowly built a name for himself in Asheville. Still only 20, the right hander kept his ERA below three at 2.85 after the start while raising his K/9 to 7.5. Requena’s success is coming in a league where he is two years younger than the competition and in his first full season in the United States.

The Tourists were unable to back Requena up on Monday, losing in the twelfth inning to Greensboro and falling back below .500 on the season at 49-50. The Tourists offense was quiet most of the night but did get three hits from Tyler Nevin and a home run from Vince Fernandez.
