The MLB First-Year Player Draft begins on Monday, with the Colorado Rockies selecting at 22nd overall. At BSN Denver, we’re recapping the team’s previous seven draft classes. In this entry, we discuss the 2014 iteration.
After finishing with a 74-88 record in 2013, the Rockies found themselves with yet another top-10 selection in 2014. Picking No. 8 overall, it was the third consecutive year they owned an upper-third selection. On top of that, they won the competitive balance lottery and landed pick No. 35, as well.
