According to Tracy Ringolsby of Inside the Rockies, first rounder Tim Wheeler agreed to terms with the Rockies and is set to begin his pro career. Wheeler, a tall, left-handed hitter, was selected 32nd overall in last week's draft. The Rockies received the pick from the Angels as compensation for losing Brian Fuentes.
The Rockies have signed 13 players other than Wheeler. Tyler Matzek, the high school pitcher the Rockies chose 11th overall, is not one of them. He figures to demand multi-million dollar bonus and isn't expected to sign soon.
