Rockies' Raimel Tapia: Added to 40-man roster
Tapia was added to the Rockies' 40-man roster Friday, Jenny Cavnar of Root Sports reports. Protecting an impressive young outfielder like Tapia from the Rule 5 draft was presumably an easy choice for the Rockies. Tapia hit .305/.333/.467 from the left side in 131 games with High-A Modesto in 2015, adding 12 homers and 26 steals in 36 attempts. One might not think there would be much room for growth in the power department, looking at Tapia's slender frame, but he is just 21 and should eventually have the luxury of playing half his games in Colorado.
