Rockies Sign Supplemental Pick Story

June 30th: The Rockies have agreed to terms with supplemental first round pick Trevor Story, according to Jim Callis of Baseball America (on Twitter). Colorado selected the high school shortstop with the 45th overall pick earlier this month.

Baseball America ranked Story 40th among eligible prospects before the draft, calling him a quality, surefire shortstop. Some scouts believe he could be close to a five-tool player because he can reach 92 mph with his fastball and has good range, pop in his bat, speed and baserunning skills. He had committed to Louisiana State. Click here for a complete list of top draft picks to sign.
