Rockies prospect Tyler Nevin falls a triple shy of the cycle in four-hit night

Prospect news and game results from the Rockies minor league affiliates from Friday, July 20, 2018

Tyler Nevin (no. 12 PuRP, for now) might be one of the more forgettable Rockies first round draft picks of the last five years. He was taken 38th overall in 2015 and had a good-not-great debut in Grand Junction. He played just one game in 2016 and then 82 in 2017 while battling various injuries. While he’s still been on the DL twice for Lancaster, he is having a much more consistent season in 2018.

He was perfect at the plate on Friday, collecting four hits in four at bats, including a solo home run in the eighth inning to give the JetHawks a two run cushion. He finished the night #ATripleShy of the cycle and had four RBI to boot. The performance pushed his season line up to .304/.356/.465 with seven home runs and 14 doubles in 61 games. Now that he has been mostly healthy over the past two half-seasons, he may be finally showing why the Rockies thought well enough to make him a first round pick.
