2013 MLB Draft Order: Rockies Still Set To Draft No. 3 Overall

With the MLB season winding to a close, the Colorado Rockies are still holding on to the No. 3 pick in the 2013 MLB Draft. Their 58-91 record is close to the worst in franchise history -- in fact, the Rockies are very likely to overshoot their former franchise low of 95 losses -- and they would probably be in contention for the first overall pick if not for the similar ineptitude of the Chicago Cubs (58-92) and Houston Astros (48-102).

MyMLBDraft.com currently has the Rockies projected to pick outfielder Austin Meadows out of Greyfield High School assuming the draft order stays the same until the end of the season.

Stanford RHP Mark Appel is predicted to be the No. 1 pick, but he had also been given that distinction prior to the 2012 draft before falling all the way to the Pittsburgh Pirates at eighth overall. Appel never signed with the Pirates after long contract negotiations and is instead playing his senior season at Stanford. He could be a potential target for Colorado if he takes another slide as they try to make amends for their last pick that high in a draft, 2006 No. 2 overall draftee Greg Reynolds.
