2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Ynoa, who joined the Rockies as a minor league free agent last offseason, was one of the more unlikely reinforcements for the big club in September. After stalling out at the Double-A level with the Dodgers, the 27-year-old turned in a commendable debut season at Triple-A Colorado Springs, producing a .356 OBP to go along with steady glovework. He was expected to function as a depth player down the stretch upon getting his first promotion to the big leagues, but surprisingly settled into an everyday role over the final two weeks, finishing with a .343/.380/.463 line over 71 plate appearances. Ynoaís .397 BABIP and roughly league-average hitting throughout his time in the minors suggest itís dangerous to put too much stock in his sizzling September, but if nothing else, it bolsters his chances of winning a utility infield role for the Rockies in 2015. Ultimately though, itís his ability to defend multiple positions that will be the greatest determinant in his bid for a 25-man roster spot.
