Season 1 pick#19

With the 19th pick, Colorado chose Weldon Black. Black was scouted as a pitcher with great stamina, control, decent splits, and the ability to fool hitters. He started out in season 2 in High A, where he promptly went 15-5 with a 3.67 ERA IN Colorado...WOW. Season 3 saw him split time between High A and AA. He combined went 13-5 with a 3.58 ERA. No one knows where he was after draft day in season 1.....he did not pitch at all. Season 4 saw him in AAA, where he went 11-10, with a 3.78 ERA. Season 5 saw him start in AAA, before being put in the ML to fill a starting pitcher gap...He has struggled at times, going 8-13 with a 5.02 ERA. He is also playing for a team that is rebuilding, and has only 53 wins. These stats will change as he continues to grow, and the team continues to get better. I will call him a STUD WANNABE
