Josh Fuentes looks forward to joining cousin Nolan Arenado with Rockies

Josh Fuentes wasn’t drafted by a major-league team coming out of college, but he managed to become the MVP of the Pacific Coast League in 2018 while playing for Albuquerque in the Colorado Rockies system.

His cousin is Nolan Arenado, the best player on the major-league Rockies team, so he looks forward to the day when he can suit up in the same lineup with him.

Arenado is a four-time National League all-star who finished in the top five of the MVP voting for the third straight year last season.
