MLB Draft 2022, Day 1, Rounds 1 & 2: Rockies preview and open thread

The Rockies have four picks tonight

After having just one first-round selection in 2021, the Rockies have four in the first two rounds of the 2022 MLB Draft. After a 74-87 (.460) season, the Rockies will be picking 10th overall.

As always, there’s a lot of speculation. You can find Purple Row’s analysis from Renee Dechert (here) and Kenneth Weber (here and here).

The Rockies will be represented by first-year general manager Bill Schmidt, who oversaw the 2021 draft as interim GM. Day 1 will include the first two rounds, Day 2 will include rounds 3-10 and begins at 12pm MT, and Day 3 will be rounds 11-20 and begin at 12pm MT.

We’ll keep you up to date on the Rockies’ picks and tell you a bit about them.
