The Colorado Rockies are one of the most mockable organizations in Major League Baseball, and while the extremely unique elements that Coors Field/the mile-high altitude present will always make it a difficult challenge to produce a sustainable winner, the ownership certainly hasn’t helped things. The Monforts have made a minimal effort to try to turn the Rockies into a championship-contending team since taking over as the organization’s primary owners in 2005.

However, the rest of the state, which includes South Platte, Rio Grande Headwaters, and the Colorado Rockies range from 108-167% of the average snowfall so far this winter.

In 2022, Kauffmann was sent back to Hartford (he was 0.5 years younger than league average) and got much better results. He threw 77 2⁄3 frames over 15 starts with a 4.06 ERA (3.86 xFIP), 1.35 WHIP, 9.7 K/9 rate, and 3.9 BB/9 rate. That was enough for the Rockies to promote Kauffmann to Triple-A Albuquerque in July.

Cron (101 games), Brendan Rodgers (26), Charlie Blackmon (14), Ryan McMahon (14), Randall Grichuk (4), and Elias Díaz (3) — combined to make the cleanup spot the Rockies most powerful spot in the lineup (as it should be).

Story at a glance A string of winter storms that brought heavier than average snow and rain across the west increased snowpack in the Western Rockies to 146 percent of average, a gain that holds the potential to boost reservoir levels in the coming months.

Cox was Colorado’s second-round pick in 2022, 50th overall, out of a rural high school in Washington state — the only high school player the Rockies drafted in that class. The 6’1” righty starter signed for a $1.85 million bonus — well over the pick’s $1.54 million slot value — to get him out of his commitment to Oregon. Cox has yet to make his professional debut, so the PuRPs ranking here indicates a belief in the stuff that got the 19-year-old drafted that highly and paid above slot.
