Rockies Add Nevin, Bowden, Goudeau and Santos to Fill Out 40-man Roster

The Rockies filled the four openings on their 40-man roster with the addition of infielder Tyler Nevin, left-handed pitcher Ben Bowden, and right-handed pitchers Ashton Goudeau and Antonio Santos.

Nevin was the 38th of 42 players selected in what was the first-round of the 2015 draft, and received a $2 million signing bonus. The son of former big-league third baseman Phil Nevin, Tyler has shown the ability to play first and third when he has been healthy.

Bowden, 25, was the Rockies second round draft selection in 2016 out of Vanderbilt. The left-hander missed the 2017 season because of a bulging disc, but returned in 2018, and was dominating out of the bullpen at Double-A Hartford in 2019 before his promotion to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Goudeau was a 27th-round draft choice of Kansas City in 2012. He also played in the Mariners system before signing with the Rockies as a released player last winter. He had an overpowering season in the Rockies system, and was an All-Star selection in the Arizone Fall League.

Santos was signed by the Rockies out of his native Dominican Republic as an 18-year-old in 2015. He has only started in the minor leagues but made an impression out of the bullpen in the Arizona Fall League.
