Getting a call-up from Albuquerque will still be a goal for some Colorado Rockies players this summer.
With the 2020 minor league baseball season wiped out by COVID-19 restrictions, Isotopes Park will serve as the satellite training site for the Rockies’ taxi squad when Major League Baseball’s abbreviated campaign begins. Rockies General Manager Jeff Bridich made things official Monday during a Zoom webinar with field manager Bud Black and media members.
Relatively few details were available Monday about what Albuquerque’s training site will entail. MLB plans to open three-week training camps in big-league cities later this week as it prepares for a 60-game season set to begin July 23-24. Teams can open the season with 30-player active rosters and keep up to 30 more players on taxi squads.
