One member of the Colorado Rockies currently a giant question mark is going to become a star.
At least one.
In recent weeks, the conversation around whether or not the Rockies have done enough to address last season's offensive woes has grown in intensity. And as a part of that conversation, we at BSN Denver suggested that no major additions need to be made and nobody needs to be a breakout star for the team at altitude to return to the postseason and even make a run at the NL West title.
But it's also likely that at least one more addition will be made and---more enticingly---that at least one of their young, supremely athletic position players can emerge in 2018 as a true threat to be reckoned. Most of these players have a bevy of detractors and with good reason. A betting person would wisely take the field over any of them individually.
Though, given the choice of the following five players, a betting person would also easily take the over of 0.5 that someone will rise to the level to complete a holy trinity with Charlie Blackmon and Nolan Arenado.
Our theoretical gambler might be inclined to look at McMahon and see a kid with physical tools off the charts who can play three positions on the infield and whose gap-to-gap power sometimes seems tailor-made for Coors Field, lay his money down, and sleep easy. But that's not the best reason to bet on him.
