    Eddie Butler experienced success this season and has a big arm but was an overdraft (breaking pitches underwhelming), something the Rockies often (but not always) are guilty of in the early rounds.

    Butler profiles as a reliever. If he becomes a very good one, then maybe this pick makes sense.

  2. Good pick by the Rockies and glad he signed early.  This kid is a good one.  Fastball is a plus pitch, slider has a chance to be very good.  Nice work Colorado.
