News: McBride is batting a sizzling .350/.394/.588 with 11 homers and 56 RBI over 282 plate appearances for Triple-A Albuquerque this season.
Impact: We've seen this kind of performance before from McBride, who has been a fixture at the Triple-A level in the Rockies organization for the last four seasons. However, because he's 30 years old and doesn't offer much defensive flexibility as a first base/corner-outfield type, McBride seems to be the quintessential "Quad-A" player. He doesn't have a spot on the 40-man roster, so it would likely take a couple of injuries before McBride would receive the chance to see reserve action with the big club.
