Rockies' Colton Welker: Extends hit streak to 15 games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Welker extended his hit streak to 15 games Wednesday, going 2-for-3 with two walks for High-A Lancaster.

Even amid this streak, he has really heated up of late, notching two hits in five of his last six games. Welker's .339/.433/.534 slash line is all well and good, but given Lancaster's extreme hitter-friendly conditions, a better gauge of the third baseman's season is his .263/.354/.456 line on the road. Welker is the seventh youngest hitter in the California League and should continue to post monster numbers thanks to his home park. He is a top 50 prospect for dynasty leagues.

Rockies' Colton Welker: Headed to Lancaster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Welker will open the year with High-A Lancaster.

This was expected after Welker faced little resistance (.350/.401/.500) in 67 games in the Sally League last season. The top thing he will work on this season is his defense at third base. He has one of the top hit tools in the minor leagues and should put up cartoonish numbers in the JetHawks home park, which has become an annual tradition among Rockies hitting prospects and Astros hitting prospects before them, back when Lancaster was one of Houston's affiliates. Last year Welker missed time with a groin injury, but if he stays healthy during his age-20 season he will likely need to be challenged by Double-A pitching at some point this summer.
