Colorado Rockies prospect Bladimir Restituyo homers in third straight game

New, comments

Prospect news and game results from the Rockies minor league affiliates from Saturday, August 11, 2018

In recent years, the Colorado Rockies have opted for quantity over the top-level quality when it comes to signing international free agents, opting to grab several players with a high ceiling each year. One of those players in 2017 was infielder Bladimir Restituyo, who celebrated his 16th birthday by signing with the Rockies for $200,000.

Now a 17-year-old in the Dominican Summer League, Restituyo is beginning to show the Rockies a return on their investment. He hit .291/.337/.396 with 12 steals in 46 games with the DSL Rockies before being moved to DSL Colorado earlier this week. Restituyo has proceeded to homer in each of his first three games with DSL Colorado, including a solo shot in the second inning of Saturday’s 5-2 win over DSL Mariners. All five of Restituyo’s hits in three games with DSL Colorado have gone for extra bases.
