Antonio Senzatela has second straight strong performance for Albuquerque Isotopes

Prospect news and game results from the Rockies minor league affiliates from Thursday, May 31, 2018.

Three of the four minor league affiliates for the Colorado Rockies came away victorious on Thursday, with only the Double-A Hartford Yard Goats coming up on the short end. In Triple-A Albuquerque, strong performances from multiple former PuRPs led them to a victory. Outfielder Raimel Tapia went 3-for-4 with a triple to improve his slash line to .307/.357/.537. On the mound, Antonio Senzatela tossed six strong innings, allowing just a run on five hits while walking a pair and striking out nine.

It was the second quality start in a row for the 23-year-old righty who now owns a 2.08 ERA in Triple-A to go along with an impressive 33-to-6 strikeout to walk ratio in 26 innings of work. It’s the first taste of Triple-A for Senzatela, who jumped straight from Double-A to the Majors in 2017, and so far he’s passing the test with flying colors. A few more starts like this and Senzatela just might force the Rockies to find a spot for him back on the Major League roster.
