Week 15 of the regular season is an abbreviated week due to the All-Star break and it leaves the Colorado Rockies with just three games. There has been speculation that top prospect Jon Gray will be called up shortly after the All-Star break, and it’s possible that it could even happen this week! It will also be interesting to see if the Rockies are able to ride the momentum they picked up in their four-game sweep of the Atlanta Braves right before the break. Let’s take a quick look ahead to week 15.
