Number 8: Roney
The Rockies drafted Roney with the 28th overall pick in 1998 draft and was one of the two draft picks that the Rockies got as compensation for losing Andres Galarraga via free agency (Number 10 bust, Choo Freeman, being the other).
Roney was more of a bust for a few reasons. First off, he was drafted higher. Secondly, he never made it to the majors for the Rockies.
He was injured in 2000 and for the Rockies, he never got above Double-A Carolina as he pitched to a 6.11 ERA in 13 starts. The Pirates claimed Roney from the Rockies in the Rule Five draft but that awful season would be one of the key pitchers for the worst team in this millennium, the 119-loss 2003 Detroit Tigers. Roney pitched to a 1-9 record with a 5.45 ERA in 44 games (12 starts) for the team.
He didn’t make it back to the majors until 2006 when he made three relief appearances for the Oakland A’s. He was out of baseball by the end of the 2007 season.
