Rockies prospect Tom Murphy impresses and David Dahl returns

Prospect news and game results from the Rockies minor league affiliates from Tuesday, April 17, 2018

On Tuesday night, Tom Murphy (no. 11 PuRP) again showed us why he’s ready to join the Rockies by going 1-for-4 with a solo home run, his 4th of the year. In 12 games so far, Murphy is slugging .804 with an ISO of .391 for the ‘Topes — the kind of power that would be really useful to a major league baseball team struggling to score runs. David Dahl returned to the lineup for Albuquerque after a stint on the 7-day DL (stomach bug shrug dot gif), and went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts, but made Rockies fans happy by simply existing on a baseball field for a real game again.

Hartford played a straight double-header, and Brendan Rodgers (no. 1 PuRP) went 3-for-4 with an RBI double in the first game, while Sam Hilliard (no. 17 PuRP) played the hero in game two by going 1-for-3 with a three-run home run. In Lancaster, Willie Abreu (no. 26 PuRP) showed off his impressive skills by blasting his 3rd home run and stealing his 5th bag.
