Prospect news and game results from the Rockies minor league affiliates from Saturday, April 7, 2018

The best performance from the Rockies’ farm system on Saturday came from a player who is not technically a prospect anymore. Outfielder Raimel Tapia, who appeared in 70 games for the Rockies last season, went 3-for-6 with a double and two home runs for Triple-A Albuquerque, leading the Isotopes to a 9-4 win over Salt Lake. Tapia is now 6-for-15 with two doubles and three home runs in the Isotopes’ first three games of 2018.

Other standout performances on the night came from Tyler Nevin, who was 3-for-4 with a home run in High-A Lancaster’s 9-8 win and Ryan Vilade, who was 3-for-5 with an RBI as Low-A Asheville dropped an 18-3 decision to Delmarva.
