— First baseman Chad Spanberger has signed with the Colorado Rockies, ending his college career with the Arkansas Razorbacks.

Spanberger was drafted by the Rockies in the sixth round of the MLB amateur draft last week. It's unclear at which level Spanberger will begin or for how much he signed, but slot value for his position in the draft was $260,200.

Spanberger is the third former Arkansas player to sign a pro contract this week, along with pitchers Trevor Stephan (Yankees) and Cannon Chadwick (Mets).
