The Rockies will add more prospects to their ranks tonight (assuming whoever they choose ends up signing). The Rockies have been good the last few years, which is great for every day of the year except for draft day, when good records relegate a team to making their first pick in the 20s. But that really only affects the predictions — its’ hard to say who will be available and what the Rockies will prioritize at the 23rd pick than, for instance, the fourth.
That doesn’t mean there’s a lack of speculation. Renee Dechert compiled mock drafts earlier today, and you can read her synthesis on who some experts think the Rockies will choose. The Rockies will make three selections tonight. We’ll keep you up to date on who they pick, as well as who the players are.
