Drafted by the Crowleys Ridge Roosters in the 2015 Minor League Draft, Round 1, Pick 3.

TUE, MARCH 27, 2018 - Tapia will be optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque, Nick Groke of The Denver Post reports. Tapia was considered likely to open on the big-league roster and potentially even win a starting outfield role at the beginning of spring, but his chances decreased after the team brought back Carlos Gonzalez. Tapia was left to battle for a bench role with infielder Ryan McMahon. McMahon won that battle after hitting .328/.375/.537 this spring, compared to Tapia's .242/.284/.355 line. Tapia will return to Albuquerque with little to prove, as he hit .369/.397/.529 in 58 games there last season. When he eventually returns to the big leagues, he's a good bet to produce a strong (Coors-inflated) batting average with a handful of steals, though his value will ultimately depend on his playing time.
