2011 MLB Draft Results: Rockies Add Northern Colorado's Jarod Berggren On Final Day

The final day of the 2011 MLB Draft has come and gone. The Colorado Rockies selected 51 players in total, ranging from Oregon LHP Tyler Anderson with the 20th overall pick to Loganville (Ga.) HS OF Heath Holder in the 50th Round.

On the third day of the draft, the Rockies took 13 high schoolers in 20 of their selections. One of those selections was C Tyler Servais out of Douglas County HS in Castle Rock, CO. That name should be familiar to Rockies fans, as Tyler's father Scott played 33 games for the Rockies in 2000. One round later, the team drafted LHP Brandon Bonilla out of Florida. Brandon is the son of ex-major leaguer Bobby Bonilla.

In the 32 round the Rockies selected another Colorado player, Northern Colorado's Jarod Berggren, a player who did well last summer in the Alaskan Summer League, but struggled early this spring. He finished strong with a .360/.432/.646 line for the season. Only a junior, Berggren can return for his senior season.

One may be led to believe that the Rockies will follow some of these Day 3 high school selection during the summer season to see if one or two will sign before the August 15 deadline.
