BA ranks Rockies’ 2010 draft fourth best in majors
Baseball America has rated the Colorado Rockies’ 2010 draft the fourth best among major-league teams in its annual draft report cards.
The Rockies’ top two picks —(first round, 26th overall) and (supplemental first round, 47th overall) — signed late and did not play a game in the minors this season. But strong pitching debuts from second-round pick and fifth-rounder pick Joshua Slaats helped the Rockies’ ranking.
Parker, who is currently the starting quarterback at Clemson, was rated the third best power hitter from the draft.
Corey Dickerson, an eighth-round pick, was rated first in pro debuts among junior college players. Dickerson, who the Rockies took in the 29th round in 2009 but didn’t sign, hit .348 with 13 home runs and 61 RBI at Casper.
