Debut Details
September 8, in a 14-1 loss to the San Diego Padres. A late-game defensive replacement in right field for starter Carlos Gonzalez, he entered the game in the bottom of the seventh and came to the plate in the top of the eighth with one on and one out. Facing reliever Oswaldo Arcia, he drew a walk but was stranded.

Player Notes
One of two Rockies players to make his debut in this game, one of three to debut this week and one of four to debut since rosters expanded, he is yet another newcomer with the potential to stick around for a while. A two-way player while at South Alabama, where he brought a mid-90s fastball to the mound and some big-time power to the plate, the Rockies have opted to keep him on the offensive side, but his strong arm is an asset in the outfield, where he can play all three spots (and also fill in at first base when needed). He’s adjusted his swing as he’s moved up. In 2015, between Modesto (High A) and New Britain (Double-A), he combined to hit .297 with 17 homers, 75 RBIs, 18 steals, 45 doubles and 12 triples for a .543 SLG, and got hit by pitches 22 times, almost as many times as he drew walks (30).
