Rockies' Raimel Tapia: Vying for starting outfield gig
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia gained 15 pounds over the offseason as he attempts to garner a starting outfield spot, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

The 24-year-old speed demon produced well both at Triple-A and in the majors, sporting a .926 and .754 OPS at those levels, respectively. He also displayed his excellent speed, going 17-for-21 in stolen base attempts between the two levels. Although he has a lot going for him, Tapia still doesn't seem to be in line for a full-time role. Charlie Blackmon is entrenched in center, while Ian Desmond seems to be the primary left fielder heading into the season given that the Rockies are expected to give Ryan McMahon the chance to act as the starting first baseman. This leaves Tapia, Gerardo Parra (hand) and David Dahl to compete for reps in right field, a battle which seems to be primarily between the latter two. Naturally, things can change during spring training, whether it be injuries (such as Parra's hand surgery) or struggles at the plate by other players. For now though, it seems like Tapia is more in line for a reserve outfield role unless injuries strike or if Desmond or Parra are forced into more action at first base.

Rockies' Raimel Tapia: Impresses despite limited role in September
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia went 9-for-25 (.360) with five RBI and five runs scored in the month of September.

The young outfielder did a decent amount of damage in a reserve role due to the Rockies' postseason race, but he still managed to raise his season slash line to .288/.329/.425 by the regular season's end. Carlos Gonzalez's potential departure prior to the 2018 season could open up a spot for Tapia to get regular playing time, which means we could finally get to see if he can translate his gaudy minor-league numbers to the big leagues in an everyday role. His role for 2018 should become clearer once spring training draws closer.

Rockies' Raimel Tapia: Summoned back to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque on Thursday, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

Tapia will rejoin the Rockies after finishing his season at Albuquerque with an impressive .369/.397/.529 line in 58 games. The 23-year-old spent some time with the big club earlier in the season, slashing a respectable .274/.324/.407 in 53 games, so he figures to see at-bats down the stretch as a reserve outfielder.

Rockies' Raimel Tapia: Shipped back to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on Monday, MLB.com reports.

The Rockies shipped Tapia back to the minors to make room on the active roster for Ian Desmond (calf), who started in left field Monday against the Tigers in his return from the disabled list. Though Tapia's latest stint with the Rockies lasted less than a week, he should rejoin the big club when rosters expand Friday. He'll likely serve as a depth outfielder over the final month of the season.

Rockies' Raimel Tapia: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rockies recalled Tapia from Triple-A Albuquerque on Tuesday.

He'll assume the active roster spot of fellow outfielder Mike Tauchman, who was optioned to Albuquerque in a corresponding move. With a .287 average, 12 extra-base hits and five steals in 133 plate appearances across multiple stints with the Rockies earlier this season, Tapia could have some appeal in NL-only formats or deeper mixed leagues if he's able to find regular playing time.
