Rockies prospect Daniel Montano had a breakout week

New, 3 comments

Prospect news and statistics from the Rockies minor league affiliates from June 24-30, 2019

Daniel Montano (no. 22 PuRP) finally had a breakout week. He went 11-for-26 (.423) with three doubles, one triple, and a home run. He also had back-to-back three hit games. On June 29, he went 3-for-4 and was a single away from the cycle without a single strikeout. He also stole a base that day, his ninth of the year. On June 30, he again went 3-for-4 with two doubles. After being signed by the Rockies in 2015, this is the Venezuela native’s first full season stateside and he’s been doing OK — hitting .222/.288/.356 before this week. Now he is hitting .242/.310/.396. Hopefully this is a sign of things to come from Montano.

Top 30 PuRPs

Triple-A: Albuquerque Isotopes, 2-5 (34-49)

Yonathan Daza (no. 14 PuRP) had a really good week last week. He went 14-for-32 (.438) with two doubles, two home runs, two strikeouts, and one walk. The 25-year-old Venezuela native was signed by the Rockies in 2010 and has since been rocketing through the Rockies system. Daza leads the Isotopes in doubles (24) and ranks in the top five in almost every batting category — triples (4, 3rd), home runs (9, T-5th), RBI (39, T-3rd), stolen bases (9, 2nd), batting average (.381, 2nd), on base percentage (.424, 4th), and slugging percentage (.585, 5th). All of this helped propel him to another mid-season All-Star selection.

Double-A: Hartford Yard Goats, 3-4 (42-37)

It was a bit of a rough week for the PuRP’s in Hartford this week. Colton Welker (no. 3 PuRP) went 5-for-23 with eight strikeouts. Bret Boswell (no. 28 PuRP) went 3-for-21 with four strikeouts. Tyler Nevin (no. 7 PuRP) probably had the best week at the plate, going 7-for-25 with four strikeouts. Justin Lawrence (no. 15 PuRP) had his six inning scoreless streak snapped when he gave up two runs in an inning on June 26. However, he came back on June 28 and pitched another scoreless inning. Hopefully next week will be better for the Hartford PuRP’s.

High-A: Lancaster JetHawks, 4-3 (41-38)

Ryan Vilade (no. 9 PuRP) started off the week with back-to-back-to-back multi-hit games. He first went 2-for-5 with a triple, then he went 2-for-4 with another triple, and finally went 3-for-4 with three singles. His worst game came on June 29, when he went 0-for-6 with two strikeouts. On the season, the shortstop is hitting .282/.369/.414 with three home runs, seven triples, and 13 doubles.

Low-A: Asheville Tourists, 2-5 (33-48)

Niko Decolati (HM PuRP) has only been with Asheville for a month and during that month, he has been hitting pretty well — .312/.365/.468 before this week. However, he went 5-for-28 (.179) with 10 strikeouts, which lowered his slash to .276./336/.419.

Boise Hawks, 5-2 (8-9)

Aaron Schunk (Round 2, 2019) continues to light it up in Boise. This week, he went 9-for-23 (.391) with two home runs. He did not strikeout once in six games and only has six total strikeouts on the season. Schunk also stole two bases to up his season total to three.

Grand Junction Rockies, 3-3 (8-7)

Eddy Diaz (HM PuRP) went 8-for-24 (.333) with a double and a triple this week. After spending the majority of last season on the Injured List for DSL Colorado, the 2017 signee out of Cuba made his stateside debut this year and hasn’t been performing too bad — .306/.358/.484 slash with five doubles and three triples, as well as 13 strikeouts and 10 stolen bases.

Dominican Summer League: DSL Colorado, 3-3 (12-13)

Pedro Mota went 7-for-19 at the plate (.368) with two doubles, three strikeouts, three walks, and three stolen bases. The shortstop from the Dominican Republic currently has nine doubles and one home run, but also has 10 RBI and seven stolen bases.

Dominican Summer League: DSL Rockies, 1-5 (12-11)

Juan Guerrero, another shortstop from the Dominican Republic, had a great week at the plate. He went 16-for-25 (.640) with two doubles and a home run. The most impressive thing though is that he had multiple hits in each of his six games this week, including a 4-for-5 performance on June 26, and his home run was his first of the year. Guerrero is hitting .347/.404/.453 so far this season.
