Rockies prospect Tim Wheeler belted a grand slam Tuesday for Triple-A Albuquerque.
Wheeler followed that up with a solo shot in the sixth inning. He's raised his average over a hundred points during his five-game hitting streak. The 27-year-old has been toiling in the minors for a long time, racking up almost 700 games of experience. If Wheeler keeps this up, this could be the year he finally cracks a big league roster.

Tim Wheeler went 3-for-3 with a home run and three RBI against the Indians on Saturday.

Wheeler was outrighted off the Rockies' 40-man roster last November, an indication of his struggles in the minors, but the 26-year-old has four home runs in Cactus League play. He's now hitting .395 in his bid to make the Rockies as a bench player. Even if he can't break camp with the club, the outfielder has put himself back on the club's radar with his showing.

Rockies sent OF Tim Wheeler outright to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Wheeler was once a top prospect, but his power has vanished since he hit 33 homers in the Texas League in 2011. The 25-year-old passed through waivers unclaimed and will stick around as organizational depth.

Rockies purchased the contract of OF Tim Wheeler from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Wheeler's power disappeared in 2012 after surgery to remove the hamate bone from his right hand, as he hit just two homers in 379 at-bats following a 33-homer outburst in 2011. He's now on the 40-man roster and will try to get back on track in 2013.

Rockies prospect OF Tim Wheeler will undergo surgery for a hamate injury in his right hand.

The 32nd pick in the 2009 draft, Wheeler was hitting .200 with two doubles and four RBI at Triple-A Colorado Springs. Wheeler's 33 home runs last season broke the single-season record for Double-A Tulsa. The injury is expected to sideline him about a month.

Double-A Tulsa's Tim Wheeler went long twice on Tuesday, giving him a remarkable 24 homers on the season.

Wheeler is absolutely crushing Texas League pitching, batting .313/.394/.602 in 352 at-bats. The 23-year-old also has 15 steals, and is a name to keep in your back pocket for the 2012 season.

Rockies agreed to terms with outfielder Tim Wheeler.

The 32nd pick in the draft, Wheeler is a left-handed hitter who projects as a potential leadoff option. The Denver Post reports that he'll be assigned to the Rockies' short-season Single-A affiliate at Tri-City.

Rockies selected Sacramento State outfielder Tim Wheeler with the 32nd and final pick of the first round.

Colorado picked up this pick from the Angels as compensation for losing Brian Fuentes. Wheeler, a left-handed hitter, is a legitimate center fielder with leadoff potential and doubles power. For where they picked, the Rockies, who selected left-hander Tyler Matzek 11th overall, had an excellent first round.
