DENVER -- The Rockies announced a bonus agreement Friday with second-round pick Chris McMahon, a right-handed pitcher from the University of Miami, which means the club has completed talks with five of its six picks in the 2020 MLB Draft.

McMahon, who went 7-3 with a 3.28 ERA in three seasons at Miami and 3-0 with a 1.05 ERA over four starts this season, signed for $1,637,400, or $20,000 above his Draft slot (46th overall), according to Jim Callis of MLB.com.

Douglas County High School ($450,000); and fifth-rounder Jack Blomgren from the University of Michigan ($394,000).

Additionally, the Rockies officially announced the signing of two undrafted free agents -- catcher Luke Leisenring of the University of South Carolina Aiken and left-handed pitcher Tanner Propst of Delta State University.

Leisenring, familiar to the Rockies because he played locally at Ralston Valley High and for the organization’s scout team in high school, agreed as soon as the signing period began. A switch-hitter, he batted .348 with four home runs and 12 RBIs this spring at USC Aiken.

Propst went 2-0 with a 3.72 ERA and two saves in 10 relief appearances for Delta State. He transferred there from Louisiana Tech.
