The second round of the 2000 Draft wasn’t particularly sparkling for the Colorado Rockies or any team.
The Rockies drafted right-handed pitcher Jason Young with the seventh pick of the second round. He appeared in 10 games in the majors with a career 9.71 ERA.
The best player in the second round was future Colorado Rockies reliever Chad Qualls. Qualls played in parts of 14 seasons in the majors with a career 5.8 rWAR.
In the third round, the best player in the round was the selection by the Montreal Expos of future All-Star outfielder Grady Sizemore. Sizemore was later traded to Cleveland and he was a three-time All-Star. The Rockies could have drafted him in the second round but they wouldn’t have been able to draft him in the third.
Two picks later, the Rockies drafted pitcher Chris Buglovsky. Buglovsky never got above Triple-A.
Later in the round, the Pirates drafted the pitcher Chris Young out of Princeton. Young was the only player with an rWAR above 4.0 in the round. He spent parts of 13 seasons in the majors and had a 17.5 rWAR and he was nominated to the All-Star Game once. Currently, he is the GM of the Texas Rangers.
But the fourth round had a lot more MLB talent.
