Wilson spent the summer hitting leadoff and playing second base with Colorado’s minor-league affiliate, the Class A Tri-City Dust Devils.

The Rockies used a pick in the supplemental round to take the 18-year-old Tago. This was a compensation selection the team received for losing All-Star righty Jason Marquis to the Washington Nationals in the offseason.

Tago was 10-3 with a 2.77 ERA for Dana Hills High School in Dana Point, Calif., last year.

Clocked in the 91-to-93 mph range, Tago has drawn comparisons to Pedro Astacio, who pitched for the Rockies from 1997-2001.
