Colorado Rockies A+
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Nevin had a great year at High-A, but if his season ended in September, the buzz surrounding him would be moderate at best. Instead, he went to the Arizona Fall League to make up for lost time (he missed five weeks early in the year with a groin injury) and won the league's batting title. Nevin did not hit a home run in the AFL, but slashed .426/.535/.593 with 15 walks and five strikeouts in 17 games. He benefited from the home park at Lancaster during the regular season (11 of his 13 HR came at home), but still hit .340/.397/.454 on the road. The righty-hitting Nevin uses the whole field with ease and has a 17.7 K% against full-season pitchers. He missed almost all of 2016 with a hamstring injury and has struggled to get to his plus raw power since missing a couple months of 2017 with a wrist injury. Now a full-time R/R first baseman, he will need to demonstrate plus power in games, if he does, he could be a fantasy monster in Coors Field. Read Past Outlooks

Invited to big-league camp

Nevin was invited to join the Rockies' major-league camp Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
Nevin hasn't yet appeared above High-A, so he won't be considered for a big-league roster spot this spring. His .328/.386/.503 line at High-A Lancaster last season earned him the chance to spend a few weeks with Colorado's major-league staff, a staff he'll be hoping to play for on a regular basis in a year or two.

2016 Fantasy Outlook
Nevin was selected by the Rockies with the 38th overall pick in the 2015 draft out of Poway high school after being named to the California large schools All-State team his senior year. He began his career with the Grand Junction Rockies in the Pioneer League where he posted a .265/.368/.386 line with two home runs and 18 RBI. Nevin's solid walk rate of 13 percent was the driver of his impressive OBP, and his 19-percent strikeout rate was slightly above average. Scouts see his bat as his biggest asset, but it comes with below-average speed and defense. The Rockies will develop him at third base, but he could see a position change to either first base or a corner outfield spot. The No. 14 prospect in the Rockies' organization, Nevin is a few years away from the majors.
