Colorado Rockies prospect Sam Hilliard runs wild for Hartford Yard Goats

Prospect news and game results from the Rockies minor league affiliates from Friday, April 6, 2017

The Colorado Rockies position player prospects had a strong day on the farm Friday. Top prospect, Brendan Rodgers, hit a home run and a double for the Hartford Yard Goats, but it was his teammate Sam Hilliard that garnered a bit more attention. Hilliard also hit a home run and also managed to steal four bases in the game against New Hampshire. Since being drafted, Hilliard has developed from a prospect with exciting but raw tools, to a legitimate 4-5 tool prospect depending on the scouting report.

David Dahl and Raimel Tapia who are both no longer considered to be true prospects due to MLB service time continue to tear up Triple-A. The duo went a combined 5-for-9 at the top of the Isotopes lineup with 4 RBI and 4 R.
