Colorado has two picks and has been silent, no one seems to know what was happening here.
Now we do. The Rockies take Tyler Matzek, the lefthander out of Capo Valley High in Califorina, and no one thought that was happening. Matzek was No. 2 on some boards, and the Rockies will not be signing him quickly or easily. The word was out that he wants "precedent setting money" and that would be more than $7 million.
Matzek was special down the stretch in the California sectional playoffs, hitting as high as 97 or 98 mph late in the season. He definitely had the highest ceiling left on the board; I’d be excited if I were a Rockies fan.
