The Colorado Rockies selected right-handed pitcher Ryan Warner with their third-round supplemental pick, and it did not take the two sides long to come to an agreement. Warner has agreed to terms with the Rockies and will skip college; he had been committed to play baseball at North Carolina State.
With the 128th pick in the draft, Colorado on Tuesday selected [Ryan Warner] with its third-round supplemental pick, offering the 2012 Pine Creek graduate a $363,700 signing bonus to start his ascent to The Show and put off studies at North Carolina State. He said he should find out in a few days what his first assignment will be.
"I’m definitely going to sign for it," Warner said. "I’m still kind of speechless. I’ve dreamed of playing in the majors since I was 5 years old. This is a dream come true, and getting picked by Colorado was definitely the key."
