Ryan Rolison is an American professional baseball pitcher in the Colorado Rockies organization. The Colorado Rockies selected Ryan Rolison in the first round of the 2018 amateur draft out of the University of Mississippi.
He had previously been picked by the San Diego Padres in the 37th round in 2016, but he had not yet signed a contract.
It wasn’t long before embarrassing tweets from his past surfaced, including one in 2012, when he was just 15, expressing his displeasure at President Obama’s reelection and expressing hope that someone would shoot him at his victory speech.
To their credit, the Rockies claimed they were aware of the tweet and rejected it as the brainless ramblings of an impressionable adolescent. That was essentially Rolison’s defense.
With Mississippi, Rolison compiled 6-3 and 10-4 records in two seasons, as well as 4-0 in the Cape Cod League during the summer, all of which were marked by good ERAs and strikeout rates.
In his first nine professional starts, he went 0-1 with an ERA of 1.86 for the Grand Junction Rockies of the Pioneer League. He was only allowed to throw 29 innings, which explains why he didn’t win a single game for the team.
