SAN FRANCISCO -- The Rockies and Forrest Wall, a second baseman from Orangeburg (Fla.) Christian High School whom they selected 35th overall in the First-Year Player Draft, have reached an agreement on a $2 million bonus, a source told MLB.com.

The club has not confirmed the agreement. But Wall, 18, is expected to officially sign the agreement Wednesday in Denver. The bonus agreement is for above the slotted figure for the 35th overall choice, in Competitive Balance Round A, which is $1.6145 million.

During his senior season, Wall batted .500 (28-for-56) with 16 RBIs, 31 runs and a .610 on-base percentage. In four high school seasons, the left-handed-hitting infielder hit .461 (106-for-230) with 25 doubles, 8 triples, 9 home runs, 70 RBIs and 98 runs in 79 games and went 70-for-71 on stolen-base attempts.

By signing, Wall will forego his commitment to the University of North Carolina.
