MLB Pipeline released its list of top minor league prospects by position last week and Bedford High School graduate Grant Lavigne was ranked No. 8 among first basemen.

Colorado selected Lavigne with the 42nd pick in last year’s draft. He hit .350 with six home runs and 38 RBIs in 59 games with the Grand Junction Rockies last season. Grand Junction is Colorado’s Rookie-League team in the Pioneer League. Lavigne also stole 12 bases in 19 attempts, and led the league with 45 walks and a .477 on-base percentage.

The current edition of Baseball America lists Lavigne as the No. 5 prospect in the Rockies’ organization. He could be assigned to the Double-A Hartford Yard Goats at some point this season. Like the New Hampshire Fisher Cats, Hartford plays in the Eastern League.
