Welker was invited to the Rockies' major-league spring training camp Wednesday.

Welker played 98 games for Double-A Hartford in 2019, hitting .252/.313/.408 with 10 home runs, 53 RBI and 37 runs scored in 394 plate appearances. The 22-year-old first-base prospect has impressed coaches at every level thus far in his minor-league career. Colorado's 2016 fourth-round pick will get his first opportunity to impress the big-league coaching staff this spring before likely returning to the minors for the time being.
