Ringolsby: Tyler Matzek signs for $3.9 million


Tracy Ringolsby at Inside the Rockies reports Tyler Matzek has agreed to terms with the Colorado Rockies, signing the largest bonus in franchise history at $3.9 million dollars. The first round pick turned down a full ride scholarship to Oregon to join the Rockies. More as the story develops.

According to the official press release:

"We are excited about the signing of Tyler Matzek and look forward to having him as a part of the Colorado Rockies organization," said Bill Schmidt, Rockies Vice President of Scouting.

I think we can all agree with that part.

The release says that the Rockies signed 40 out of 52 total picks, which would indicate that Tym Pearson and the remaining high school selections taken after the 35th round were not signed by the club.
