Colorado Rockies prospect Forrest Wall homers on a rough day for the farm system

Prospect news and game results from the Rockies minor league affiliates from July 12, 2018

The success of the Colorado Rockies at the Major League level did not trickle down to the minor league level on Thursday. Their affiliates combined to go an abysmal 1-8 across nine games in which they were outscored 50-22. Brights spots were few and far between on this day, but one of note came from No. 16 PuRP Forrest Wall with the Double-A Hartford Yard Goats.

The 22-year-old lefty went 2-for-3 with a double and a home run—Hartford’s only extra base hits of the game—in a 4-3 loss to the Harrisburg Senators. Wall also drew a walk to improve his slash line with Hartford to .235/.331/.394 in 151 plate appearances. While certainly nothing to write home about, this perhaps represents a step in the right direction for the 2014 supplemental first round pick who has shown promise with his bat throughout much of his career. Here’s a look at the rest of Thursday’s action.
