Tyler Nevin Enjoying Quick Start in AFL

Tyler Nevin was a late replacement for Brendan Rodgers, who was scratched from the roster of Salt River in the Arizona Fall League. He has delivered since his arrival.

While Salt River suffered a 13-4 loss to Peoria on Monday, Nevin raised his average to .455, going 1-for-2 with a sacrifice fly, run scored and two RBI. Josh Fuentes (.235) was 1-for-4 with a run scored and double.

Despite the final score, Rockies prospect Ryan Castellani (4.05) started and worked 3 2/3 no-hit and scoreless innings, walking three and striking out two, despite throwing only 28 of 61 pitches for strikes.
