Monday Rockpile: Ryan McMahon with hope for the future

Ryan McMahon thriving as Rockies’ bright spot in second half | Mile High Sports

The Rockies took a chance on their young prospects in the 2019 season. Ryan McMahon has shown that he has earned an everyday spot with the team. Overall, the season has been rough, but the young infielder has shown that he can deliver for his team. McMahon recognizes that he has to work hard to keep his spot on the team. He certainly has worked hard, improving over the season as the team has struggled. He’s learned how to face big league pitchers, recognizing their throws and figuring out how to get hits. McMahon has taken advantage of the veteran players he’s near, learning from Charlie Blackmon and others. He’s trying to be a run producer, contributing to the team and giving Rockies fans some hope for the future.

The Colorado Rockies have had some impressive hitters in the past, with the Blake Street Bombers topping things out for the team. They were certainly helped by the advantage of altitude, but also just dominated. However, this year has not had the same effect with the Rockies. There has been an impressive amount of home runs amongst many teams, but the Rockies home run numbers are less than impressive, landing them tenth in the NL. Nolan Arenado credits it to young, inexperienced players, and other players who historically haven’t been long-ball players. Charlie Blackmon contends that it’s not necessarily about hitting home runs, but partly about getting the team working together as a whole to get the job done. The Rockies will keep trying, though, hoping to redeem something of the 2019 season.

This isn’t the first time he’s had blood clots, but we wish him well in his recovery. DJ Johnson has been recalled from Triple-A to take his place in the meantime.
