The Colorado Rockies and first-round draft pick David Dahl have agreed to terms on a signing bonus, reports Kendall Rogers of Perfect Game USA. The bonus is worth $2.6 million, which is just under MLB's recommended slot signing bonus of $2.7 million. According to Rogers, Dahl will sign Tuesday and forgo his commitment to Auburn University.
Dahl, a High School prep outfielder from Alabama, is an athletic and high-upside selection by the Rockies, writes ESPN's Keith Law. However, Law warns Rockies fans Dahl "lacks an outstanding tool and some question his energy level."
According to our First-Round Picks Signing Tracker, six of the top twelve picks have now signed or agreed to terms with their respective teams.
Now that the Rockies have signed Dahl, they'll look to agree to terms with their other first-round draft pick in supplemental round selection Eddie Butler. Butler, who projects as a prospect reliever, was taken with a compensation pick the Rockies earned when Mark Ellis signed with the Dodgers.
