Colorado Rockies prospect Riley Pint looks strong in latest start

Rockies minor-league farm system news, notes and scores from Wednesday, August 9

While he may be the most talented pitcher in the Rockies system, Riley Pint might also be the most enigmatic. Armed with an electric fastball that reaches triple digits with movement and a great curve ball, Pint has failed to produce the strikeout numbers one might expect in professional baseball. However, this might be more a result of developmental goals for him than anything else. The Rockies are working with him to be more consistent with his delivery which will hopefully bring more consistency to his command as well. If Pint can’t start to command his pitches better, the results might start to follow.

Last night was a good example of that as Pint had one of his stronger outings in Asheville this season. He struck out five while only walking two in 5 13 inning. The end result was two runs allowed, though only one was earned. If you dig a little deeper, it’s obvious that the work is not yet complete as he threw only 53 strikes in 96 pitches. Pint still has a long ways to go but the raw stuff should buy enough patience for him to develop.
