Toglia an under-the-radar gem for Rockies

DENVER -- First baseman Michael Toglia did just enough to tempt fans, and possibly even the Rockies, to dream. The 6-foot-5, switch-hitting Toglia, the Rockies’ first-round pick in 2019 out of UCLA, earned an invitation to the Sirius XM Futures Game at Coors Field, during which he homered. He also showed power -- 17 homers in 74 games at High-A Spokane, five in 41 at Double-A Hartford -- and a glove that has the Rockies excited. Toglia homered for the Salt River Rafters on Friday and Saturday in Arizona Fall League play.

2021 TSR Daily: Wrapping Things Up

This morning I Tweeted the last of my 2021 TSR Daily custom cards (called “Daily” because I Tweet out a custom each day #2021TSRDaily ). I started Tweeting these on February 23rd and sharing them here on March 1st. Back in 2020 with everything shut down, I created a couple of hundred customs as a way to keep me occupied and relaxed. For 2021 I decided that if I was going to crank out that many I might as well make a small cohesive set and try to represent all of the teams. I’m going to share the last batch of customs and then I’ll discuss how well I met my goals and what is coming next for me.
