  • Rockies' Zac Veen: Return slowed

    Veen (back) has had his recovery slowed by an injury to his left hand and thumb, MLB.com reports. Veen was expected to return to game action earlier this week while recovering from a back issue. However, the new injuries have limited him to working out at the team's facility and have left him without a clear timeline to return.

  • Rockies' Zac Veen: Rehabbing in Arizona

    Double-A Hartford sent Veen (back) to the Rockies' rookie-level Arizona Complex League affiliate Monday to begin a rehab assignment. Veen didn't play Monday but should soon see game action in the ACL as he looks to regain his rhythm at the plate after being shut down since May 18 with a back strain. Before Hartford placed him on its 7-day injured list, the outfield prospect was slashing .326/.418/.568 with five home runs and nine stolen bases over 110 plate appearances on the season.

  • Rockies' Zac Veen: Out with lower-back strain

    Veen is on the 7-day injured list at Double-A Hartford with a lower-back strain, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports. Veen hasn't played since May 18. He is currently at the Rockies' spring training complex in Arizona and is doing some, but not all, baseball activities. It's not clear when the 22-year-old might return. Veen was performing well at Hartford before getting hurt, slashing .326/.418/.568 with five homers and nine steals over 28 games. He also missed a large chunk of the 2023 season at Hartford with a hand injury.

  • Rockies' Zac Veen: Could play winter ball

    Rockies director of player development Chris Forbes said in an interview on MLB Network Radio on Thursday that Veen (hand) could play winter ball this offseason, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports. Veen was limited to just 202 plate appearances this season with Double-A Hartford before undergoing surgery last month to repair tearing and fraying to a ligament in his left hand. It sounds like he should be fully recovered by the fall and getting in some at-bats in winter ball would allow him to make up for lost time. The Rockies don't have to add Veen to their 40-man roster until after the 2024 season to protect him from the Rule 5 Draft.

  • Rockies' Zac Veen: Shifts to 60-day IL

    Double-A Hartford transferred Veen (hand) from its 7-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Saturday. Veen's move to the 60-day IL was merely a formality after he underwent season-ending surgery in June to repair tearing and fraying to a ligament in his left hand. Before being shut down for the campaign, the 21-year-old outfielder had gotten off to a slow start at Hartford, slashing .209/.303/.308 with 11 extra-base hits and 22 stolen bases in 201 plate appearances. He'll look to return to full health for spring training and will presumably open the 2023 season back in Hartford.

  • Rockies' Zac Veen: Back in action at Double-A

    Veen (wrist) has gone 5-for-12 with a triple, three doubles, seven RBI, three runs and a stolen base in three games since Double-A Hartford reinstated him from its 7-day injured list Thursday. Veen was shelved April 28 due to left wrist inflammation, but he hasn't shown any sign of diminished power as a result of the injury since he was activated Thursday. The 21-year-old outfielder remains one of the more exciting prospects in the Colorado farm system and is slashing .210/.310/.371 with six extra-base hits and seven stolen bases through his first 71 plate appearances on the season with Hartford.

  • Rockies' Zac Veen: Placed on minor-league IL

    Veen was placed on the injured list Tuesday at Double-A Hartford with left wrist inflammation, Danielle Allentuck of The Denver Gazette reports. It's not believed to be a serious issue, but the Rockies will give their top prospect a breather to allow the inflammation to dissipate. He's off to a rough start this season at the Double-A level, slashing just .160/.276/.260 with one home run through 58 plate appearances. Granted, the 21-year-old outfielder has stolen six bases in six attempts.

  • Rockies' Zac Veen: Reassigned to minors camp

    Veen was reassigned Tuesday to the minor-league side of Rockies camp. Veen drew a lot of playing time in the Cactus League this spring and posted some encouraging numbers -- including eight stolen bases in nine attempts -- but the 21-year-old outfielder was never really in the running for an Opening Day roster spot. Colorado selected him as the No. 9 overall pick in 2020 and he finished the 2022 season with a .496 OPS in 34 games at Double-A Hartford.

  • Rockies' Zac Veen: Debut in 2023 possible

    Veen could make his big-league debut in the second half of the 2023 season, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports. Veen closed the 2022 season in Double-A Hartford, and he's likely to start the 2023 campaign at the same level. However, he has drawn positive reviews from the organization after putting on muscle during the offseason and showing an improved swing in the Arizona Fall League. Though a small sample, Veen did struggle upon his promotion to Hartford, as he posted only a .177/.262/.234 slash line across 141 plate appearances.

  • Rockies' Zac Veen: Scuffling through power drought

    Veen is hitting a modest .257/.366/.396 with five home runs, 22 steals and a 32:52 BB:K through 52 games for High-A Spokane. He's been particularly rough with the bat over his last dozen games, hitting .195/.340/.244, though he does have eight steals in that span. Veen's legs have carried him even when his bat hasn't, as he's only been caught stealing a single time all season -- a huge improvement over the 17 times he was thrown out last year. Still, after he put up a .501 slugging percentage in Low-A in 2021, expectations for his power output were much higher than this. Veen still has plenty of prospect luster thanks to his speed, his plate discipline and his future home in Coors Field, but it'd be nice to see him start driving the ball more often.

  • Rockies' Zac Veen: Earns Northwest League Honors

    Veen was named the Northwest League Player of the Week on Monday for his production with High-A Spokane, Patrick Lyons of TheDNVR.com reports. Veen collected nine hits across 19 at-bats, tallying three doubles, one home run, three RBI and two walks across five games to earn the honors. Despite the impressive week, Veen has struck out at 35.1 percent clip across 57 plate appearances to begin the season, and he has struck out at least once in 12 of his 13 games. At just 20 years old, it's not particularly surprising that Veen still has holes in his game, and he still possesses a promising fantasy skill set highlighted by his ability to both hit for power and provide stolen bases.

  • Rockies' Zac Veen: Swiping bags despite slow start

    Veen stole two more bases Sunday for High-A Spokane, giving him seven swipes in eight games this year. However, he's hitting just .138/.306/.138 with a 7:13 BB:K. That strikeout rate is rough, and Veen is still searching for his first extra-base knock this year, but it's good to see him swiping bags at a much better clip than last season, when he posted just a 67.9 percent success rate despite recording 36 steals. Those walks are a positive sign, too, and we should see him hit the ball with more authority as the season wears on. Just 20 years old, Veen is still probably two or three years away from the majors, so he has plenty of time to refine his approach at the dish.

  • Rockies' Zac Veen: Monster game Tuesday

    Veen hit for the cycle -- including a grand slam -- and drove in a total of seven runs for Low-A Fresno against Modesto on Tuesday. Just another big game in what's been a big pro debut season for Veen, who's now hitting .309/.403/.532 with 15 homers, 30 steals, 72 RBI and 74 runs for Fresno. The grand slam went to the opposite field, highlighting just how much power the 19-year-old outfielder brings to the table. He's been on an absolute tear in August, hitting .429/.488/.729 for the month, so it's clear that Veen has nothing left to prove in Low-A. After a slow start to the season, he's been terrorizing opposing pitching. There are only two nits to pick from his monster stat line: Veen's been caught stealing 16 times, which is actually a rather poor success rate, and he's striking out at a 25.8 percent clip. But considering his age (and his already strong 12.8 percent walk rate), those aren't major causes for concern.

  • Rockies' Zac Veen: Power surge continues

    Veen went 5-for-6 with a home run, two walks, five runs and three RBI for Low-A Fresno between the team's doubleheader games Saturday versus Stockton. In his first season in the professional ranks, Veen has made his biggest impact on the bases (27-for-37 success rate on stolen-base attempts) and with his on-base skills (.396 OBP), but the 6-foot-5, 200-pound outfielder's plus raw power is finally beginning to show up in games. After leaving the yard only four times in his first 57 games with Fresno, Veen has matched that total over the club's past four contests. Veen should be in line for a promotion to High-A Spokane before season's end.

  • Rockies' Zac Veen: Big day at Low-A

    Veen went 3-for-4 with a double, a walk, three RBI, a run and two stolen bases Sunday in Low-A Fresno's 8-7 win over Visalia. When the Rockies selected him with the No. 9 overall pick in last summer's draft, Veen was touted mostly for his plus raw power and advanced approach at the plate, he's made his biggest impact on the basepaths in his first season of professional ball. Through 44 games and 202 plate appearances, Veen has already swiped 24 bags, though he's been thrown out seven times. The 19-year-old Veen will likely sacrifice more speed for power as he matures into his 6-foot-4, 190-pound frame, but his strong all-around skill set coupled with the fact that the Rockies boast the majors' most hitter-friendly home park makes him an intriguing player to track in dynasty leagues.
