Rockies 2022 Draft signings tracker

July 31st, 2022

Below is a list of every player drafted by the Rockies.

Each club has until 5 p.m. ET on Monday, Aug. 1, to come to terms with its Draft selections. If a player has exhausted his collegiate eligibility, he can sign at any time up until one week prior to the next year’s Draft.

Draft-and-follow picks -- high school and junior college players selected after the 10th round who attend a two-year college after the Draft -- can sign with their selecting teams for up to $250,000 up until a week prior to the following year’s Draft.

Total bonus pool: $13,667,800

MLB rank: 5

1 (10): Gabriel Hughes, RHP, Gonzaga -- $4 million (Pick value: $4,983,000)
The Rockies saw Hughes' durability and competitiveness when he stayed in a college game for 138 pitches. He comes with a fastball that he can spot, command of his breaking pitches and a changeup that scouts love -- although he didn't need it as much against overmatched collegiate hitters. More >>

1C (31): Sterlin Thompson, OF, Florida -- $2,430,500 (Pick value: $2,430,500)
The Rockies' compensation pick for losing Trevor Story to the Red Sox was born in Colorado. Even though his family moved to Florida when he was a baby, he grew up admiring Rockies star Troy Tulowitzki. An infielder by trade, Thompson filled a need in the Gators' outfield. Not only that, but he is cut from the Rockies' traditional cloth -- a solid fundamental hitter who can become a force when consistent power arrives. More >>

CBA (38): Jordan Beck, OF, Tennessee -- $2,200,000 (Pick value: $2,052,300)
Beck enters pro ball with a powerful, athletic frame and an aggressive attitude in the batter's box. He also has speed on the bases, range and a solid throwing arm. His tools definitely work in the corners, but scouts believe he should receive a chance to handle center field.

2 (50): Jackson Cox, RHP, Toutle Lake HS (Wash.) -- $1,850,000 (Pick value: $1,545,300)
The Rockies love the mature approach of Cox, who was the only high schooler the Rockies picked this year. Well put together at 6-foot-1, with a three-pitch mix and a feel for it, Cox had committed to Oregon but it was clear he felt he was ready for the next level.

3 (88): Carson Palmquist, LHP, Miami -- $775,000 (Pick value: $713,300)
Undrafted out of high school, Palmquist excelled for the Hurricanes -- first as a reliever, then as closer and finally as a starter. Palmquist has a solid fastball and a sweeping slider. However, he added a fading changeup as a starter. His pitch mix and release point are similar to those of current Rockies starter Kyle Freeland. More >>

4 (116): Ryan Ritter, SS, Kentucky -- $530,000 (Pick value: $522,900)
Ritter was chosen as the Rawlings Gold Glove Award winner at the collegiate level, but the excitement is over what Ritter can grow into as a hitter. He showed dramatic progress over two seasons swinging a wood bat in the Cape Cod League, and he has a 6-foot-2 frame with potential for bulk and strength without affecting his arm or range. More >>

5 (146): Connor Staine, RHP, Central Florida -- $400,000 (Pick value: $390,800)
Staine reached a deal with the Rockies, per’s Jim Callis. MLB Pipeline’s No. 88 overall Draft prospect had a 1.87 ERA with 51 strikeouts across 43 1/3 innings in 12 starts for UCF. This was after the right-hander spent his first two college seasons at Maryland and played in the Cape Cod league in 2021.

6 (176): Michael Prosecky, LHP, Louisville -- $300,000 (Pick value: $296,300)

7 (206): Kody Huff, C, Stanford (Pick value: $231,600)
Has not agreed to terms

8 (236): Davis Palermo, RHP, North Carolina -- $175,000 (Pick value: $185,300)

9 (266): Brad Cumbest, OF, Mississippi State -- $163,300 (Pick value: $163,300)

10 (296): Zach Agnos, RHP, East Carolina -- $165,000 (Pick value: $153,200)

11 (326): Carson Skipper, LHP, Auburn

12 (356): Caleb Franzen, LHP, University of Portland

Has not agreed to terms

20 (596): Carlos Torres, RHP, Lehigh
Has not agreed to terms

How bonus pools and pick values work
Each choice in the first 10 rounds comes with an assigned value, with the total for a club's selections equaling what it can spend in those rounds without incurring a penalty. If a player taken in the top 10 rounds doesn't sign, his pick's value gets subtracted from his team's pool. Clubs near the top of the Draft often spend less than the assigned value for those choices and use the savings to offer more money to later selections.

Teams that exceed their bonus pool face a penalty. Clubs that outspend their allotment by 0-5 percent pay a 75 percent tax on the overage. At higher thresholds, clubs lose future picks: a first-rounder and a 75 percent tax for surpassing their pool by more than 5 and up to 10 percent; a first- and a second-rounder and a 100 percent tax for more than 10 and up to 15 percent; and two first-rounders and a 100 percent tax for more than 15 percent.
