2012 MLB Draft Signings: Correlle Prime Joins Rockies

On Thursday, the Colorado Rockies signed 2012 MLB Draft pick Correlle Prime to a $190,000 signing bonus, according to a report from the Bradenton Herald. The Colorado Rockies used their 12th-round draft pick (No. 378 overall) on the 6-foot-6, 200-pound high school prospect from Manatee High School in Florida, and although he also pitched for his high school team the Rockies plan on developing him as a first baseman.

He will start his journey in Colorado's minor league system on Monday with the organization's Pioneer League affiliate in Grand Junction, Colorado. Prime is excited about the opportunity to start his career as a professional baseball player, as he told the Bradenton Herald:

"The opportunity was there, and it was a good opportunity. It was never really about the money. It was a chance to get my career started as a professional baseball player, and not too many kids get that opportunity. My mom, she backed me 100 percent, and that made a difference."
