Well, good news, you’re in the right place.

I’ve done some research and have found players who played for both the Rockies and the Rays.

Vinny Castilla

Vinny Castilla, a Mexican-born third baseman, was a key figure in Major League Baseball from 1991 to 2006. He spent most of his career with the Colorado Rockies during the ’90s, where he shone as part of the famed “Blake Street Bombers.”

Castilla was known for his power at the plate, smashing over 300 home runs in his career, including three seasons with 40 or more. He was a two-time All-Star and a three-time Silver Slugger winner (all with the Rockies), finishing with a .276 career batting average.

Despite his power stats being somewhat influenced by Coors Field, Castilla’s ability to deliver clutch hits solidified his reputation as a top slugger in his era.

Greg Vaughn

Greg Vaughn was a formidable power hitter in the outfield with a 15-year Major League career from 1989 to 2003. He had notable tenures with the Brewers, Padres, Reds, and Devil Rays.

Vaughn was a four-time All-Star and finished fourth in the 1998 National League MVP voting when he belted 50 home runs, aiding the Padres to reach the World Series.

Over his career, he compiled a .242 batting average, smashed 355 home runs, and drove in 1072 runs. His best years were likely 1998 and 1999 when he hit 95 home runs combined.
