DENVER -- The Colorado Rockies announced today that the Club has agreed to terms with Competitive Balance Round A selection Grant Lavigne, third-round selection Terrin Vavra and seventh-round selection Andrew Quezada. Per Club policy, terms of the deals were not disclosed.

Lavigne, a left-handed hitting first baseman, was selected out of Bedford (N.H.) High School in Competitive Balance Round A. The 6-foot-4, 230-pounder batted .639 with seven home runs and 26 RBI with Bedford High School en route to his second New Hampshire Gatorade Player of the Year Award. He became the earliest hitter drafted in New Hampshire state history when the Rockies selected him with the 42nd overall pick.

Vavra, a junior shortstop out of the University of Minnesota, was selected in the third round with the 96th overall pick. The left-handed hitter batted .386 (86-for-223) with 13 doubles, four triples, 10 home runs, 59 RBI, 30 walks and 22 strikeouts in 58 games for the Golden Gophers. The Menomonie, Wisc., native was one of five finalists for the Brooks Wallace Award for the nation's top collegiate shortstop and was named First Team All-Big Ten and First Team All-America by Baseball America. The 6-foot-1, 185-pounder is the son of current Detroit Tigers Quality Control Coach Joe Vavra.

Quezada, a right-handed pitcher from Cal State Fullerton, was selected with the 216th overall pick in the seventh round. The 20-year-old junior went 4-5 with three complete games, a 3.90 ERA (83.0 IP, 36 ER), 19 walks and 68 strikeouts in 14 starts for the Titans this season. The Bellflower, Calif., native previously attended Cypress (Calif.) College where he recorded the school's first no-hitter and posted a 1.17 ERA as a sophomore in 2017.
