Colorado Rockies simulation game thread no. 91: Zac Gallen vs. Jack Wynkoop

Start time, lineups, and discussion thread for the second game of today’s doubleheader and Jack Wynkoop’s MLB debut

The Sim Rockies take on the Sim Diamondbacks this evening in the second game of the #PurpleRowSim Doubleheader.

Jack Wynkoop (no affiliation with the LoDo Brewery) will be making his MLB debut against the Snakes. Wynkoop was the Rockies’ sixth round pick in 2015, He rocketed through the ranks, making it to High-A in 2016. However, he plateaued in Hartford — spending three years in Hartford before finally making it to Sim Albuquerque. He did begin 2019 in Hartford, but was promoted. Since his promotion, the lefty has posted a 3-0 record and 1.69 ERA.

He will go up against Sim Diamondbacks’ rookie right-hander Zac Gallen. Gallen was drafted by the Miami Marlins in the third round of the 2016 draft and made his MLB debut for the Marlins last June. He was then traded to the Snakes in exchange for Jazz Chisholm — one of their top shortstop prospects. Gallen pitched seven games for Miami and eight for Arizona in 2019, going 3-6 with a 2.81 combined between the two teams. He went 2-3 with a 2.89 ERA specifically with Arizona.
