After having four first-round picks in the 2022 MLB Draft, the Rockies will have three in the first two rounds of the 2023 draft. After a 68-94 (.420) season, the Rockies will be picking ninth overall.

As always, there’s a lot of speculation. You can find Purple Row’s analysis from Renee Dechert here, and Skyler Timmins looked back at the Rockies’ first-rounders here. Evan Lang and Kenneth Weber also previewed the draft on this month’s episode of the Pebble Report Podcast.

The Rockies will be represented once again general manager Bill Schmidt. 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.
