Day 2 of the 2013 MLB First Year Player Draft is complete and the Rockies made eight more selections, highlighted by their first pick of the day in Sam Moll.
Here's a quick recap of the day.
Round 3, Pick 77: Sam Moll, Memphis LHP (Ht/Wt: 5'10"/185 lbs)
Why you should be excited
If he wasn't 5'11", Moll might have had looks as a first rounder. A lefty pitching at 92-94 while flashing 96 with cut or tail has a 60 present fastball. His curve-now-slider has hard 1-7 break, and could also be a 60 pitch with work. Moll is athletic, repeats his delivery, and has improved his control every step of the way.
Round 4, Pick 109: Jordan Patterson, University of South Alabama (Ht/Wt: 6'4"/205 lbs)
Round 5, Pick 139: Blake Shouse, Middle Georgia College RHP (Ht/Wt:6'2"/185 lbs)
Round 6, Pick 169: Dom Nunez, Elk Grove HS (CA) 3B (Ht/Wt: 6'0"/170 lbs)
Huge value in Dom Nunez here.Have to believe Rox feel he's still signable.
