The 2015 MLB Rookie Draft marked a new era for the Colorado Rockies. For the first time in almost 20 years, the team selected high schoolers with it’s first four picks. Additionally, it was the first draft with newly named GM Jeff Bridich at the helm.
While 2015 was the first draft with Jeff Bridich as GM, now-GM Bill Schmidt was then serving as the Rockies scouting director. So while Bridich was undoubtedly able to make his mark on the Rockies draft strategy, the betting money would say that the Rockies drafts with Schmidt as GM would not mark much of a departure from the drafts with Schmidt as scouting director.
