Player Outlook
A 6-foot middle infielder with one of the best approaches and hit tools in the minors, Adael Amador has a chance to contend for batting titles in his prime. Unfortunately, injuries limited him to 69 games (including rehab assignments), but he was able to reach Double-A as a 20-year-old. The skilled switch hitter made notable exit velocity gains last year, notching a career-best 110.4-mph maxEV while upping his hard-hit rate and average exit velocity. Even with those gains, he doesn't barrel the ball regularly enough to the pull side to project for more than 15-20 homer pop at peak, and he's not the type of burner on the bases who projects to top 20 steals in a season, even if he's on base all the time. Amador's overall fantasy profile is similar to Rockies era DJ LeMahieu, where batting average/OBP and runs scored will be his banner stats. He was added to the 40-man roster and could make his big-league debut this summer. Ezequiel Tovar is the superior defender, so Amador's long-term home is likely second base.

  • Rockies' Adael Amador: Activated, optioned to Double-A

    The Rockies reinstated Amador (oblique) from the 10-day injured list Tuesday and optioned him to Double-A Hartford. Amador has been playing in rehab games with Hartford while working his way back from a right oblique strain, and he will remain with the Yard Goats now that he's made a full recovery. The 21-year-old went just 6-for-35 (.171) during his first career stint in the majors, and with a .659 OPS through 213 Double-A plate appearances, he clearly still needs more time to develop before he's ready for a more permanent role on the Rockies.

  • Rockies' Adael Amador: Ready for rehab assignment

    Amador (oblique) was sent to Double-A Hartford on Sunday to begin a rehab assignment. Amador has been on the 10-day injured list for a little over a week with a strained oblique but has been cleared to return to game action. He should be ready to be activated soon, but with Brendan Rodgers beating him back from the IL, Amador is likely to remain with Hartford upon his activation rather than returning to the Rockies.

  • Rockies' Adael Amador: Hits 10-day IL

    Amador (oblique) was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday. Amador suffered a right oblique strain in Thursday's game against the Dodgers, a injury similar to one he sustained earlier in the season at Double-A Hartford. Considering Brendan Rodgers (hamstring) is coming off the IL and Amador put up a .394 OPS in 10 big-league games, the 21-year-old doesn't have a clear path to at-bats in Colorado once he gets healthy.

  • Rockies' Adael Amador: Set for IL stint

    Amador will be placed on the injured list Friday with a right oblique strain, Patrick Lyons of JustBaseball.com reports. Amador's move to the injured list comes as Brendan Rodgers gets activated from the IL, meaning the rookie's playing time was coming to an end regardless. The 21-year-old Amador appeared in 10 games with the Rockies but struggled to a .171/.194/.200 slash line with a stolen base. While it's unclear how long he'll be sidelined, there is optimism that his recovery will be quick.

  • Rockies' Adael Amador: Out of Friday's lineup

    Amador (oblique) is not in the lineup for Friday's game versus the Nationals. Amador had to be pulled from Thursday's game against the Dodgers with a mild oblique issue. It seems at this point to be more of a day-to-day situation, but between the injury, his slow start and Brendan Rodgers (hamstring) being due back soon, Amador looks like an easy drop in most redraft leagues.

  • Rockies' Adael Amador: Suffers oblique strain

    Manager Bud Black said Amador was removed from Thursday's game against the Dodgers due to a "mild oblique strain," Luke Zahlmann of The Denver Gazette reports. Amador appeared to be wincing after his at-bat in the seventh inning and was replaced in the field before the eighth frame. The 21-year-old suffered a similar injury earlier in the season while with Double-A Hartford, and it remains to be seen whether he'll require a trip to the injured list.

  • Rockies' Adael Amador: Productive in debut

    Amador went 1-for-3 with a stolen base Sunday against the Cardinals. Amador started at second base and hit eighth in his big-league debut Sunday. He led off the third inning with a single and then proceeded to swipe second base. Amador should get regular run in the lineup so long as Brendan Rodgers (hamstring) is sidelined.

  • Rockies' Adael Amador: Batting eighth in MLB debut

    The Rockies called up Amador from Double-A Hartford, and he'll start at second base and bat eighth Sunday at St. Louis. The 21-year-old is taking the roster spot of Brendan Rodgers (hamstring), who was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday. Amador is one of the organization's top prospects, and he'll make his MLB debut without seeing action at the Triple-A level. Amador's .666 OPS in 208 plate appearances for Hartford this season isn't encouraging, though he carried a hot bat over his past nine games and had a .359/.422/.846 slash line with six home runs and six stolen bases.

  • Rockies' Adael Amador: Set for MLB debut

    Amador will be recalled from Double-A Hartford on Sunday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports. With Brendan Rodgers (hamstring) on his way to the 10-day injured list, Amador will get his first crack at big-league action. The 21-year-old hasn't made it past Double-A yet and although he owns a .194 batting average this season at Hartford, Amador is 14-for-39 (.359) with six home runs and six stolen bases in his last nine games. He figures to share playing time with Alan Trejo at second base.

  • Rockies' Adael Amador: Joining taxi squad

    Amador joined the Rockies in St. Louis on Saturday, though the team has yet to formally call him up from Double-A Hartford, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports. Amador sports a .666 OPS through 208 plate appearances this season with Hartford, but he has slashed .326/.388/.767 with six homers and 14 RBI while also stealing six bases across his last 10 games. With the Rockies waiting to see if Brendan Rodgers (hamstring) will require a trip to the injured list, Amador will remain on the club's taxi squad for the time being. He would likely return to Double-A if Rodgers is able to make a quick recovery.

  • Rockies' Adael Amador: Lengthy power outage

    Amador is slashing .138/.312/.149 with zero home runs, 12 steals and more walks (19) than strikeouts (17) in 25 games for Double-A Hartford. Coming into the year, Amador was seen as one of the best pure hitters in the minors, so it's a bit jarring to see his batting average sitting at .138 through the first five weeks of the season. Perhaps more concerning though, is Amador's complete lack of power, as his .171 BABIP and overly patient approach largely explain his low batting average. Amador's 20.6 percent hard-hit rate and 63.2 percent groundball rate are very troubling marks. He is playing half his games in Hartford, which is essentially a neutral hitting environment, after getting to play half his High-A games at the very hitter-friendly park in Spokane, which helped him slug .514 in 54 High-A games last year.

  • Rockies' Adael Amador: Activated, advances to Double-A

    Amador (hand) was assigned to Double-A Hartford on Saturday after being activated from High-A Spokane's 7-day injured list. Even though Amador hadn't played for Spokane since June 22 before being shut down with a broken hamate bone in his right hand that ultimately required surgery, the Rockies saw enough from the 20-year-old during his rehab assignment in the rookie-level Arizona Complex League to send him to Double-A now that he's healthy again. Through his first two games with Hartford, the switch-hitting middle infielder has gone 2-for-8 with a walk, a run scored and two stolen bases. He had slashed .302/.391/.514 with nine home runs and 12 stolen bases in 54 games with Spokane prior to getting injured.

  • Rockies' Adael Amador: Recovering from injury

    Amador got a little dinged up during spring training and will be held back in extended before being assigned to High-A Spokane, Jonathan Mayo of MLB.com reports. Mayo didn't provide an official injury for Amador, but it sounds like it should be a short-term absence. Amador, who has one of the best hit tools in the minors, could split the year between Spokane and Double-A Hartford in his age-20 season.

  • Rockies' Adael Amador: Hot start at Single-A

    Amador has six home runs, 11 RBI and 16 runs scored while hitting .359/.463/.654 across 95 plate appearances with Single-A Fresno. Amador was named Player of the Week in the California League on Monday after he hit .500 with two doubles, four home runs and seven RBI across 30 plate appearances from April 26 to May 1. He has maintained a .295 ISO and .494 wOBA to go along with a 16.8 percent walk rate while only striking out at a 12.6 percent clip. Amador has been regarded as a polished prospect with a lesser ceiling, and it wouldn't be a surprise to see some of his power production fade, but his start to the season has been worthy of attention.
