Hello everyone! My name is Trent Dickeson, and I am the new correspondent for the Colorado Rockies for Prospects1500! I am thrilled to have the opportunity to cover the Rockies minor league system and look at the future stars of baseball. As an intern with the Rome Braves, I fell in love with Minor League Baseball. That love only grew with the increasing coverage of MiLB. It has grown even further with the growth of dynasty baseball and my love for playing fantasy baseball.
As an Atlanta Braves fan, I watched the Braves build their team through a strong minor league system. I know that for some organizations, the minor leagues are crucial to long-term success. Seeing a top prospect rise through the minors and become a mainstay for the major league team is special. It is also special to watch a prospect develop and make an impact on one’s dynasty baseball roster.
I began writing a year and a half ago, as a contributor over at Tomahawk Take and SportsTalkATL for the Atlanta Braves. Shortly after, I got the opportunity to join Fantasy Six Pack, covering mostly redraft leagues. I fell in love with writing during the pandemic and I am grateful to receive a new opportunity to write for Prospects1500.
I am excited to be covering the Colorado Rockies and their minor league teams. As a fan of baseball, I love seeing what each organization values in their player development at the lower level. While it is always fun to see a top prospect succeed, it is equally fun to watch a player emerge from nowhere as a diamond in the rough.
I strive to provide the best content possible. If anyone would like to talk baseball, feel free to find me over on Twitter (Trent) @Trenciarte.
