Tony Wolters’ rapid development as catcher impresses Rockies manager Bud Black

SCOTTSDALE, ARIZ. — When the Rockies claimed Tony Wolters off waivers from Cleveland a year ago, it seemed unlikely that he would leave spring training with the big league club. After all, he was a middle infielder in the Indians organization, and had just moved to the catching position before joining the Rockies last spring. Turned out he was a quick study. Wolters seized the...

The Rockies Could Have Their Best Pitch-Framing in History

In two months or so, we’ll roll out our 2017 positional power rankings. Between now and then, not a whole lot should change, so perhaps I shouldn’t go out of my way to issue spoilers. But, what the hell, here’s our current ranking of the catchers. The Giants are in first. Buster Posey is amazing! The Rockies are in last. Their catchers are also amazing, but less amazing relative...

Rockies claim catcher Tony Wolters from Indians

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) The Colorado Rockies have claimed catcher Tony Wolters off waivers from the Cleveland Indians. To make room on the 40-man roster, they transferred right-hander Adam Ottovino to the 60-day disabled list. Wolters, 23, spent last season at Double-A Akron, where he hit .209 with two homers and 17 RBIs and threw out 38 of 77 runners (49 percent) attempting to...

Wolters Looks To Bounce Back After Injury-Ridden Season

Going into the 2016 season, the catching depth for the Indians is pretty thin. They’re lucky enough to have two outstanding catchers at the major league level in Yan Gomes and Roberto Perez. Behind the pair though, there are no viable options at Triple-A Columbus. The next player to be on the depth charts behind these two would be converted catcher Tony Wolters, but last season...

Wolters Still Looking to Catch On

Back in 2012, I had the privilege of sitting down and meeting Tribe High-A prospect Tony Wolters, who was a young, hard-working middle infield prospect who was in the infancy stage of switching positions from shortstop to second base back then. The organization was making the position move for one of their top 10 young stars because of a massive logjam that was forming at the shortstop...

What to Do With Tony Wolters?

The Indians have a problem in the upper-middle minor league levels that they have yet to fully address. With Jason Kipnis under control through 2017, the Indians have little need for another top level second baseman, but they have a plethora available. From Carolina to Columbus, the Indians have no less than nine Major League quality prospects that could play short stop or second...
