2015 MLB Draft Order And Projected Pools - BaseballAmerica.com
Now that James Shields is off the board, the 2015 MLB Draft order is officially set. The Rockies have the third, 27th, 38th and 44th overall picks. Colorado in recent years has had great success finding value with those late first-round and supplemental round-type picks, so the fact that the club has three selections in that area in this draft is good news. The Rockies' projected bonus pool of more than $14.5 million is the second most of any team, behind only the Astros.
