2022 MLB Draft: Day One Recap | FanGraphs Baseball

The Fangraphs’ take, team by team.

On Rocker, ESPN’s coverage talked about the change in arm slot, while MLB’s coverage didn’t mention it. (I’m only part way through ESPN’s version but I’m enjoying it so far. If Karl Ravich let Kiley and the rest talk a bit more it would be better.)

It sounds like Kumar Rocker’s deal is for a little north of $5 million, saving the Rangers about $2.5 million in pool space. Because they don’t pick again until 109, it’s unlikely that they can target any individual player there, and I think they’re more likely to spread that out to many players in the mid-six-figure bonus range. Rocker going this high was a surprise, and it was absolutely delightful to tell the chat and those sitting around me at the draft that things were about to go off the rails. I hope Rocker stays healthy and shoves, but it’s very strange to me that his arm slot is nearly 90 degrees lower than it was 12 months ago.
