Tracking the signing status of all of the Rockies' 2015 draft picks.

The Colorado Rockies have officially agreed to terms with top pick Brendan Rodgers, the team announced on Wednesday. Rodgers signed for $5.5 million, according to MLB.com's Jonathan Mayo. The amount is significantly under the pick's slot value of $6.22 million.

Rodgers, the third overall pick in the 2015 MLB First-Year Player Draft, previously announced that he had agreed to terms with the club shortly after he was selected. The shortstop from Lake Mary High School (Fla.) will likely begin his professional career with the rookie-level Grand Junction Rockies of the Pioneer League.

Widely considered the top talent in the entire draft, Rodgers was one of four high school players taken by the Rockies in the first two rounds, including Competitive Balance Round A. Colorado has already signed several other players selected in the first 10 rounds of the draft and is expected to announce agreements with highly touted picks Mike Nikorak, Tyler Nevin and others within the next few days.

Here's the full list, including the signing status for each player, of the Rockies' 2015 draft picks. Hat-tips to MLB.com and Rockies Roster's Sage Farron for their assistance:
