2012 MLB Draft Signings: Colorado Rockies Have Signed 28 Players From Class Thus Far

The Colorado Rockies have agreed to terms with 28 players from their 2012 MLB Draft class so far, including the team's first six picks. The deadline to sign players July 13 at 3 p.m. MT.

The top unsigned draft picks for the Rockies are fifth round infielder Matthew Wessinger and sixth round right-handed pitcher Matthew Carasiti, both of St. John's University. Each is expected to start negotiating contracts soon, as their college season recently ended. Same goes for the as yet unsigned players Colorado selected in rounds 13, 18 and 30.

David Dahl Agrees To $2.6 Million Contract With Rockies

The Colorado Rockies agreed to a $2.6 million contract with outfielder David Dahl, the team's first round pick in the 2012 MLB Draft, on Monday night.

2012 MLB Draft: Keith Law Slots Rockies' David Dahl Behind Only To Nolan Arenado

The Colorado Rockies still need to sign the No. 10 overall choice in the 2012 MLB Draft, Alabama prep outfielder David Dahl, but ESPN Insider Keith Law already has him as a highly ranked prospect in the team's system. Law believes Dahl is the team's No. 2 overall prospect:

I'd slot Dahl in between their top prospect, Nolan Arenado, and shortstop prospect Trevor Story.

Arenado is considered the future third baseman of the future of the Rockies. He is currently playing for the Double-A Tulsa Drillers and is expected to join the big league club later this season. Story was last year's supplemental first round choice and is currently playing for the Single-A Asheville Tourists.

Dahl instantly is the team's top outfield prospect, as Charlie Blackmon has failed to take off due to injury and the same for Tim Wheeler. Also, neither of those two might be more than a fourth outfielder for the club. Dahl has a chance to be an above-average everyday player.

2012 MLB Draft Results: Rockies Complete Draft Selections

The Colorado Rockies completed the 2012 MLB Draft on Wednesday afternoon by completing Rounds 16-40. The team opened up the day by drafting a local prospect from Colorado Mesa, outfielder Jeff Popick. From there on out, the Rockies mixed in a selection of four-year college players, junior college players and high schoolers. Most of the prep players are likely to go to college, but we'll know definitively on July 13 when the new signing deadline comes into effect.

Other prospects of interest the Rockies drafted on Wednesday include Ryan Garvey, an outfielder from Riverside Community College. He is the son of former Major Leaguer Steve Garvey.

Here is a complete listing of the Rockies' 2012 MLB Draft, from No. 10 overall pick OF David Dahl to 40th round selection C Justin Montalvo:

2012 MLB Draft Results: Buffalo C Tom Murphy Goes To Rockies In 3rd Round

The Colorado Rockies used the No. 105 overall pick in the 2012 MLB Draft to draft Buffalo Bulls catcher Tom Murphy on Tuesday. He is the second college player the team has drafted so far, previously taking two high school center fielders (David Dahl, Max White) and one pitcher from Radford (Eddie Butler).

Murphy, 6 feet 1 and 220 pounds, seems to be a solid defensive catcher with pop in his bat, but he likely won't hit for average. He hit .311 with 10 home runs this spring and was able to walk 32 times to 46 strikeouts.

The Rockies' next pick comes in the Compensation B Round at No. 128 overall. The team failed to sign 2011 third-round draft pick Peter O'Brien and received this choice as a result.

2012 MLB Draft Results: Rockies Nab Eddie Butler With No. 46 Overall Pick

The Colorado Rockies had a second selection in the 2012 MLB Draft on Day 1 and used its Compensation A pick (No. 46 overall) to draft RHP Eddie Butler of Radford. The Rockies received this pick as a result of seeing Mark Ellis sign with the Los Angeles Dodgers as a free agent this past offseason.

Radford is 6 feet 2 and 165 pounds. His fastball reaches the mid-90s, but he usually sits in the lower end of the 90s. He throws a slider and a changeup, but the latter pitch needs work if he hopes to stay a starter.

In 2011, the Rockies used its Compensation A pick on shortstop Trevor Story, who is hitting .300/.391/.589 with 15 doubles, five triples, 10 home runs and 34 RBI.

The Rockies will resume drafting with the rest of the league on Tuesday afternoon when Round 2-15 will take place. Colorado has an extra pick in the Compensation B Round, which comes after Round 3, as a result of not signing 2011 third-round pick Peter O'Brien.

2012 MLB Draft Results: Rockies Select HS OF David Dahl With No. 10 Overall Pick

The Colorado Rockies have selected Alabama prep outfielder David Dahl with the No. 10 overall draft pick in 2012 MLB Draft. The Rockies had been connected to him in the weeks leading up to the draft, but there were several high school players linked to the team in the final days, such as Courtney Hawkins. Hawkins was also available, so the Rockies obviously preferred Dahl over him.

Dahl is 6 feet 2 and 185 pounds and hits left-handed. He is committed to the Auburn Tigers, but he should sign relatively quickly (the signing deadline for draft picks is July 13 at 3:00 p.m. MT). He is a center fielder who has the arm and speed to stick there and he is projected to be a solid power hitter.

The Rockies' draft history has mostly favored pitchers with Christian Friedrich (2008), Tyler Matzek (2009) and Tyler Anderson (2011) being the most recent examples. Friedrich made his debut for the Rockies this season while Matzek has had to reorient his career and appears to finally be back on track. Anderson missed the start of the 2012 season with injury, but has done well in Asheville (3-0, 4.23 ERA, 20 K).

2012 MLB Draft Results: Kevin Gausman Goes No. 4 Overall To Baltimore Orioles

Colorado native and current LSU Tigers pitcher Kevin Gausman is still playing in the 2012 NCAA Baseball Tournament, but he will soon call the minor leagues teams of the Baltimore Orioles his home. He was taken by the team with the No. 4 overall pick in the 2012 MLB Draft

Gausman is 11-1 with a 2.72 ERA in 115.2 innings pitched. He has struck out 128 batters so far. He is expected to pitch in either the first or second game of the Super Regionals this weekend. He is not eligible to sign with the team until LSU is eliminated from postseason play. Once that happens, Gausman will have until July 13 at 3:00 p.m. MT to sign a deal or head back to school for another year.

Gausman was a draft-eligible sophomore this season, which gives him two years more of eligibility. However, it seems unlikely Gausman will return, as the slotting system for baseball is pretty much set in stone and his stock might never be higher.

2012 MLB Draft Order: Rockies Pick At Nos. 10 And 46 On Day 1

The 2012 MLB Draft takes place on Monday night and the Colorado Rockies will have two picks on Day 1 of the event. The Rockies have their regular No. 10 overall pick after finishing the 2011 season with a 73-89 record.

2012 MLB Mock Draft: Keith Law Projects Kevin Gausman To Kansas City Royals At No. 5

It's quite unlikely that Colorado native and LSU RHP Kevin Gausman will fall down to the Colorado Rockies at No. 10 in the upcoming 2012 MLB Draft, and that's no different in ESPN Insider Keith Law's latest MLB mock draft. He has Gausman going to the Kansas City Royals at No. 5, but that's not set in stone or anything:

All arms are in play here right now -- including Gausman, Zimmer and Lance McCullers Jr. -- although I did also hear Albert Almora as a dark horse here. If the board blew up, they would also consider Zunino.

Zimmer, a product of the University of San Francisco, goes two picks later at No. 7 while McCullers isn't projected in the first round due to signability concerns.

With draft budgets in place and severe penalties for going over that money, it will be interesting to see how teams change their draft strategies. Even if the Royals pass on Gausman at No. 5 -- if he doesn't go before then -- one of the four teams selecting immediately ahead of the Rockies will be a good bet to snatch him.

2012 MLB Mock Draft: Keith Law Sticks With HS OF Courtney Hawkins For Rockies In Latest Projections

The 2012 MLB Draft is less than a week away and mock drafts will be popping up throughout the week. ESPN Insider Keith Law has released his second mock draft of the season and he doesn't change anything for the Colorado Rockies. After giving the Rockies high school outfielder Courtney Hawkins in his first projection, Law sticks with the prep player once again:

Assuming Almora and Correa are gone (which is likely), they're on Hawkins, David Dahl and Gavin Cecchini. Hawkins has one of the quickest bats in the draft and plenty of power.

Dahl is a prep center fielder from Alabama (No. 12 to the New York Mets in this mock) while Cecchini is a shortstop from Louisiana (No. 17 to the Toronto Blue Jays).

In Baseball America's Top 500 rankings, Dahl comes in at No. 12 while Hawkins and Cecchini follow at Nos. 15 and 16, respectively. Dahl and Hawkins are projectable outfielders who seemingly could do it all while Cecchini is a strong defender but might not have quite the impact on offense as some would like.

2012 MLB Draft: Kevin Gausman Goes No. 5 To Royals In Baseball America Projection

Colorado native and right-handed pitcher Kevin Gausman, a draft-eligible sophomore, last went in the sixth round of the MLB Draft during the 2010 season, but he turned down the Los Angeles Dodgers to head to the LSU Tigers. That decision is likely to turn out well since he is on the cusp of being a top-five draft choice. In Baseball America's first mock draft, the Kansas City Royals nab Gausman at No. 5 overall:

Kansas City picked in this spot last year and missed out on the advanced pitcher it coveted when Cole, Hultzen, Bauer and Bundy went with the first four choices. The Royals will try again in 2012, and one of the three top-tier college arms should be available. If Appel, Gausman and Zimmer all disappear, Kansas City's best bet would be Zunino.

Gausman is 7-1 with a 3.16 ERA over 12 starts. He has struck out 101 batters and walked just 20 in 82.2 innings. He is a midseason finalist for the 2012 Golden Spikes Award and should be among the finalists selected at the end of May.

2012 MLB Mock Draft: Baseball America Projects HS OF David Dahl To Rockies At No. 10

The MLB Draft season doesn't ever really feel started until Baseball America releases its first in-season mock draft and that's what happened on Thursday afternoon. The Colorado Rockies hold the No. 10 overall pick and use it to select a high-upside high school outfielder:

10. ROCKIES: Colorado has had limited success taking pitchers with its top choice in five of the last six drafts. The Rockies are zeroing in on hitters and would love Almora, but they may have to settle for a slightly lesser version in Dahl.
Projected Pick: DAVID DAHL.

Dahl is a lefty-swinging outfielder from Oak Mountain HS in Birmingham, Al. Baseball America wrote ($), back in the winter, that Dahl has the makings of a five-tool player who can stick in center field or move over to right because of his strong arm.

Albert Almora, mentioned above, goes to the Chicago Cubs at No. 6 overall. He is also a five-tool prospect in center field.

The Rockies last took an outfielder in the first round during the 2010 MLB Draft, selecting Clemson's Kyle Parker. Parker hit 21 home runs for Low-A Asheville in 2011 and moved up to Advanced-A Modesto in 2012. However, he played just one full game before a ball hit his hand in the second game and sent him to the disabled list.
