SAN FRANCISCO -- The Rockies and Georgia Southern left-handed pitcher Sam Howard, their third-round pick in this year's MLB First-Year Player Draft, reached an agreement on a bonus worth $672,100, MLB.com has learned.

The amount is full slot value for the 82nd overall pick that the club used for Howard.
