LF,RF - COL - MiLB
The Rockies have signed their first-round pick, outfielder Zac Veen.
Veen is receiving a $5 million signing bonus, which is just above slot value for the ninth overall selection. The 18-year-old was viewed as the best prep hitter in the 2020 draft class and landed in a dream situation for fantasy purposes. However, he is so young and Colorado is so cautious with their prospects that it'll likely be a while until he debuts in the bigs.
The Colorado Rockies have selected Spruce Creek (Fla.) HS OF Zac Veen with the No. 9 overall pick in the 2020 MLB Draft.
Veen's power is perfect for the hitter-friendly confines of Coors Field. The lefty's swing looks just like Cody Bellinger's. While he may never hit for average, his frame, power, and speed could make him Bellinger-lite in a few years. Frankly, this may be the pick with the biggest fantasy impact, given his skillset and the park he'll play in.
