AFL 2019, Week 1: Ashton Goudeau and Alexander Guillen start off strong

New, comments

Arizona Fall League prospect news and updates from September 18-22, 2019

Arizona Fall League play began last Wednesday and so far, Rockies prospects have only done okay. Of the position players, Colton Welker (no. 4 PuRP) is the only one to have recorded multiple hits. However, relievers Ashton Goudeau and Alexander Guillen have been bright spots so far.

On September 19, Ryan Castellani (no. 16 PuRP), Goudeau, and Guillen all pitched and combined for six scoreless innings in a shutout over the Mesa Solar Sox. Goudeau in particular pitched three perfect innings that included four strikeouts. Guillen earned his first AFL save, pitching the ninth inning and only giving up two hits.

Goudeau, 27, was signed by the Rockies as a minor league free agent and spent 2019 in Hartford, where he posted a 2.07 ERA in 78 13 innings. Guillen, 23, was signed out of the Dominican Republic in 2013 and also spent 2019 in Hartford, where he posted a 1.53 ERA in 76 23 innings. These two are definitely prospects to keep an eye on over the next six weeks.
