As of early Wednesday evening (July 25), it is not clear what the Rockies would be giving up. It could two players for the Single-A Asheville Tourists.
In 88 games for Asheville this season, Bouchard is hitting .263 with eight home runs and 47 RBIs. Spanberger has even better numbers. He is hitting .315 with 22 home runs and 77 RBIs in 92 games. He has also stolen 16 bases in 20 attempts.
Both are listed as first basemen on the Tourists' website.
