Rockies re-signed OF Rosell Herrera to a minor league contract.
Herrera was non-tendered earlier this month. A former top-100 prospect as recently as 2014, Herrera hit .260/.314/.354 for the Rockies' High-A affiliate this past season. The lack of interest he found on the open market speaks to his prospect status at this point. Thu, Dec 10, 2015 05:16:00 PM

Rockies non-tendered OF Rosell Herrera.

Herrera was rated a top-100 prospect by MLB.com and Baseball America in early 2014 after posting a .933 OPS with 16 home runs and 21 stolen bases in 126 games at Low-A Asheville during the 2013 season. But those numbers have proven completely fluky over the last two summers and the 23-year-old outfielder won't get much love on the free agent market this winter. He hasn't seen a pitch above High-A Modesto.

Rockies optioned INF Rosell Herrera to Double-A New Britain.

Herrera picked up three hits in 13 spring at-bats. Just 22, the young infielder still has plenty of developing to do.

Rockies prospect shortstop Rosell Herrera went 3-for-3 with a home run and two walks for High-A Modesto on Wednesday.

Herrera has gone ice cold since mid-June, hitting .229/.309/.351 over 34 games, striking out 25 times. Despite the concerns that he will need to move to third base full time, Herrera is still playing shortstop about 60 percent of the time.

Rockies shortstop prospect Rosell Herrera went 2-for-5 with two home runs for High-A Modesto on Wednesday, raising his season line to .313/.347/.393.

Herrera missed nearly six weeks with a sore wrist, and has been on fire since his return, hitting .400/.455/.600 with two doubles and two home runs in 10 games. He is likely to move to third base due to Troy Tulowitzki, though the emergence of Nolan Arenado could be an issue. In his last two games, he has one single, two doubles, and two home runs.

Rockies purchased the contract of SS Rosell Herrera from Class-A Asheville.

Herrera broke out in a big way in 2013, batting .343/.419/.515 with 16 home runs and 21 stolen bases at Asheville. Still just 21, Herrera is a few years away from the majors. Adding him to the 40-man roster ensures that he won't be snatched by another team in December's Rule 5 Draft, though.
