Top 5 Starting Pitchers – (Factor Score) / Highest Level Attained
 
1. RHP Peter Lambert – (24) / HiA Lancaster   “Legit UTR”
2. RHP Jeffri Ocando – (14) / Pioneer League Grand Junction
**Ocando received a state-side promotion into the Rookie League. He struggled with his command, but my system still liked the 18-year old right-hander. He already has the fastball (hitting 93 mph), but a very promising curve and changeup might be that far away. He’s definitely in the running for the Rockies “One to Watch” for the 2018 season.
 
3. RHP Brandon Gold – (13.5) / HiA Lancaster
4. RHP Erick Julio  – (13) / LoA Asheville
5. RHP Antonio Santos – (13) / LoA Asheville
 
Mid-Season Trade Impact: The Rockies traded away two of their top UTR-OAS pitchers to the Phillies. Alejandro Requena (20.5) came in at #2 as a starter and JD Hammer (23) would have been the #1 relief pitcher.
