Today the 2023, MLB Draft concluded and the Colorado Rockies had 21 picks this year. The Rockies made some statement moves on day 1 of this year's draft, as they drafted RHP Chase Dollander and LHP Sean Sullivan in the first round, both college pitchers who could find their way on the MLB Roster as soon as next year followed by utility Catcher, Shortstop and outfielder in Cole Carrigg from San Diego State University.

During Days two and three of the draft, the Rockies continued with their strategy from Day one and chose several college players. In fact, 20 out of 21 picks were college players. They also selected an international prospect from the International Baseball Academy of Puerto Rico, a right-handed pitcher named Yanzel Correa.

The Rockies have focused on their pitching needs in this year's draft by selecting 14 pitchers and seven position players. Personally, I'm thrilled with their choices. Pitching has been the team's weakest area, and a solid draft is the best way to address team needs in baseball.

While the Rockies are projected to miss the playoffs this year, the future is bright and these moves are signs they are headed in the right direction.

Blow is a list of all the players the Rockies selected broken down by their position.
