Nevin father-son duo were first-round picks

Tyler Nevin is in his fifth pro season in the Colorado Rockies organization, playing for Double-A Hartford this season.  He was a first-round pick (38th overall) of the Rockies in 2015 MLB Draft.

Tyler’s father, Phil, was the first overall pick of the 1992 MLB Draft by the Houston Astros.  He went on play 12 seasons in the majors, including an all-star selection in 2001 with the San Diego Padres.  He has managed at the Triple-A level in both the Detroit and Arizona organizations and currently is a coach for the New York Yankees.

The Nevins are the ninth father-son pair to both be selected in the first round of the draft.
