2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2013 Signed out of the Dominican Republic in 2009, Aquino features a low-90s fastball and a changeup, but he needs work on his breaking ball. The lanky lefty's command is ahead of his stuff. The Rockies have been slow to bring him along, keeping him in the Dominican Summer League for two full seasons and part of another before his promotion to the Pioneer League last July. Aquino is a long way away, but the combination of command and projection makes him worth watching.
