Rockies’ 2018 draft signings tracker

New, 95 comments

Here’s a list of who has signed with the organization following the June draft

Update, June 13: The Rockies signed 26 of their draft picks on Wednesday, including first rounder Ryan Rolison and fourth rounder Ryan Feltner. Rolison signed for the full value of his draft slot, which is about $2.9 million. The player to keep an eye on now is high schooler Grant Lavigne. The Rockies selected Lavigne in Competitive Balance Round A, 42nd overall.


The 2018 MLB Draft is in the books. The Rockies made 41 picks total in this year’s draft, the first one coming in the first round at 22nd overall: Ryan Rolison, a left handed pitcher from Ole Miss. The last pick was a catcher from Saddleback Community College in Mission Viejo, California, Brett Auerbach (you can catch video and analysis of Auerbach here).

After drafting Grant Lavigne out of a New Hampshire high school, the Rockies drafted 30 straight college players, 17 of which were pitchers. Their next seven picks were all high school players, and five of those were pitchers. According to MLB.com, it is unlikely any of those high school draftees signs. RHP Nick Pogue (33rd round) is committed to Florida, Jake Moberg (34th) and Sean Mullen (35th) to UCLA, SS Cayden Zimmerman (36th) is committed to Air Force, LHP Easton Murray (37th) to LSU, and RHP Kumar Rocker (38th) and OF Isaiah Thomas (39th) to Vanderbilt. All of those schools have long histories of winning and it would take a deal way above slot for the Rockies to lure them from school. This is especially interesting in the case of Kumar Rocker, who came into the draft as the no. 23 ranked draft prospect, but fell all the way to the 38th round.

The Rockies took 23 pitchers overall (nine lefties, eight righties), five third basemen, four outfielders, three shortstops, three catchers, two second basemen, and one first baseman.

We will keep this list updated with the latest signing status of the Rockies Draft Class of 2018. You can also follow Rockies Roster online and on Twitter for more updates and assignments.

The signing deadline for 2018 draftees is Saturday, July 6.
