Nikorak, a first-round pick (27th overall) of the Rockies in the 2015 draft, recently took a few minutes out of his schedule for an exclusive interview with me. It has been almost 12 months since the right-hander underwent surgery for a torn UCL. Now, in the days between spring training and extended spring training, Nikorak and Javier Medina, Rayan Gonzalez and Evans Grills are continuing to work through their recoveries from Tommy John surgery at the Rockies facility in Scottsdale, Arizona.

“We are all eager to find out where we’re going,” said Nikorak, who will likely begin his comeback at short-season Grand Junction or Boise.
