With roughly five weeks remaining until the July 30 MLB trade deadline, it seems as if Rockies executives are the first ones on the move.
Colorado officials confirmed to The Post on Wednesday morning that former Rockies assistant general manager Zach Wilson has resigned from his post, and that assistant director of player development Chris Forbes will be stepping up to assume Wilson’s duties.
It’s the second departure of an assistant general manager in the last 10 days, as Jon Weil reportedly left the club by mutual consent earlier this month.
Wilson had also served as the Rockies’ farm director.
Wednesday’s news continues a season that’s been marked by on-field struggles on the road — the Rox fell at Seattle, 2-1, late Tuesday night, dropping to a MLB-worst 5-28 away from home — and major shakeups inside the front office.
General manager Jeff Bridich resigned on April 26. Bill Schmidt was named interim Rockies GM on May 3.
Weil had been with the Rockies’ for 16 years and served as the assistant GM for scouting since 2014.
