The Rockies may have had another disappointing losing season, but it’s not all bad. There’s plenty to look forward with this team, and it starts with the young talent, both on the mound and in the batter’s box.

Colorado, who has been stockpiling some of the best young talent in the majors, began to see all those high draft picks pay off, as seemingly every rookie they called up turned into an absolute stud. In fact, when Baseball America released their 2016 Major League All-Rookie Team, it was the Rockies dominating the list with four players, two more than the next closest team (LA Dodgers).

In the outfield, David Dahl was an easy choice. After being called up in late July, Dahl went on to record a hit in his first 17 games, hit seven home runs, record 24 RBIs and hit for an average of .315. If it weren’t for a certain shortstop, he may have had the most impressive debut month of anyone in the league.

Trevor Story, though, was something special to watch, hitting a rookie-best 27 home runs despite not playing the final two months of the season. The Dodgers’ Corey Seager got the nod at shortstop, but they couldn’t keep Story off the team, fitting him in at designated hitter.

But of the four players to make the list, the combo of Tyler Anderson and Jon Gray is the most encouraging.

The Rockies produce hitters like no other; pitching, not so much. The fact that they can come out of this season with two pitchers having played at an all-rookie level is fantastic news. With a few other talented arms in the system, there’s finally some hope for the Colorado Rockies’ pitching staff.
