  • Rockies' Sterlin Thompson: Makes Double-A debut

    The Rockies promoted Thompson from High-A Spokane to Double-A Hartford on Tuesday. In his Double-A debut Tuesday, Thompson served as Hartford's designated hitter and went 0-for-4 with a walk and a run scored. One of the top prospects in the Colorado system, the 22-year-old third baseman earned the bump up to Hartford after slashing .323/.399/.520 with seven home runs and 14 stolen bases in 263 plate appearances at Spokane.

  • Rockies' Sterlin Thompson: Back in action for Spokane

    Thompson (undisclosed) returned to action for High-A Spokane on June 2 and has hit .438 with four home runs over an eight-game hit streak. He is still listed as being on the 7-day injured list, but he has played in the last three games for Spokane, so it seems like a possible data error on MiLB.com. This hit streak dates back to before the injury, and Thompson, who transitioned from the outfield to third base this year, has a .438/.489/.763 slash line with five home runs, five steals, an 8.7 percent strikeout rate and a .435 BABIP in 21 games.

Before hitting the shelf with the injury, the 21-year-old Thompson was making a strong early case for a promotion to Double-A Hartford. Over the first month of the minor-league season, Thompson slashed .463/.513/.746 with 12 extra-base hits, five stolen bases and a 7.7 percent strikeout rate over 78 plate appearances. He currently leads all minor-league players in batting average and wRC+ (233).
