RHP Jonathan Gray has signed with the Colorado Rockies for $4.8M, which is under the slot value assigned to the #3 overall pick. Gray was 10-3 at Oklahoma with a 1.67 ERA and struck out 147 batters in 126 1/3 innings. He will be assigned to Rookie ball in Grand Junction, CO.
Gray is the highest pick to sign so far, with RHP Mark Appel (Astros) and 3B Kris Bryant (Cubs) at #1 and #2 still unsigned. The deadline for signing players from this draft is July 12.
