Colorado Rockies agree to terms with first-round selection Riley Pint
The Colorado Rockies announced today that the Club has agreed to terms with right-handed pitcher Riley Pint, the club's first-round selection (fourth overall) in the 2016 First-Year Player Draft. Per club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Pint will be available to the media prior to this afternoon's game at noon in the Rockies interview room adjacent to the clubhouse.
The 18-year-old graduate of St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Overland Park, Kan., was rated the second overall prospect by both Baseball America and MLB.com prior to the draft.
The 6-foot-4-inch, 210-pound right-hander went 6-1 with a 0.50 ERA this season for St. Thomas Aquinas with 75 strikeouts in 42 innings pitched. In his most recent outing, Pint struck out 12 in a quarterfinal victory for St. Thomas Aquinas en route to winning the Kansas 5A state championship. In his junior season in 2015, he went 5-2 with a 2.20 ERA and 47 strikeouts in 35 innings pitched.
