As the season gets underway, RoxPile.com is making some fun (but completely unqualified!) predictions about how members of the Colorado Rockies will fare this summer. In this edition: Michael McKenry.
After starting his career in the Colorado Rockies’ minor league system, Michael McKenry bounced around, seeing time with the Rockies (2010), Red Sox (AAA, 2011), and Pirates (2011-2013) before returning to Colorado last season as the back-up catcher for much of the year.
Now, with Wilin Rosario learning first base and Nick Hundley behind the plate as the primary backstop, McKenry figures to be the backup catcher to spell Hundley while providing good defense, and, if his 2014 season was any indication, a pretty good bat for the Rockies.
