2011 MLB Draft Results: Tyler Anderson Goes To Rockies At No. 20

After all of the mock drafts and the rumors, the Colorado Rockies settled on Oregon Ducks LHP Tyler Anderson. Utah's C.J. Cron went No. 17 to the Los Angeles Angels, eliminating one potential Rockies pick. They passed on UNC's Levi Michael and Hawaii's Kolten Wong for the college pitcher.

He was the No. 1 rated prospect for the state of Oregon by Baseball America. He's a 6-foot-4, 215-pound lefty who owns the University of Oregon's all-time strikeout record. He throws a two- and four-seam fastball, both sitting in the low-90s. A slider, a curveball occasionally and a changeup round out his repertoire. He's not going to wow many people, but he has the "feel" for pitching that many scouts like to use.

The Rockies have one more pick on Monday night, the 45th overall pick as compensation for Octavio Dotel
