The Colorado Rockies have confirmed that first base prospect Ryan McMahon will begin spring training as the team's starter at the position, while last year's incumbent Ian Desmond will shift to the outfield. The fact the Rockies already have named McMahon the starter is quite a statement in terms of their confidence in the kid and their expectations for 2018. Having been drafted in the second round back in 2013 by the Rockies, McMahon put himself firmly on the prospect radar a year ago by hitting 20 home runs and stealing 11 bases combined at Double-A and Triple-A; while also batting .an insane .326 and .372 at both levels respectively. While it is fair to question the overall power of McMahon, he will surely get a home ballpark boost there and the average has been scorching at any level. Throw in some bonus steals and there is a lot going on here for 2018 fantasy baseball.
