• Personal fave Hunter Renfroe, this year's pop-up guy in the Southeast, went to the Red Sox in the 31st round. Read more about Renfroe here.
• Florida State's Taiwan Easterling was a wide receiver on the football team and had a ruptured Achilles tendon to rebound from, but he has obvious athleticism. He went just 3-for-23 for the Seminoles this year, but the Marlins took a flier on him in Round 31.
• The Dodgers drafted the younger brother of Andre Ethier in the 32nd round; Devon Ethier is an outfielder out of Gateway (Ariz.) CC. Also in the 32nd round, the Twins popped righty Tommy Toledo out of Florida; he's a redshirt sophomore who has had all kinds of injury issues—including taking a liner off his face this year—since being an unsigned third-rounder out of high school in 2007. Another eligible sophomore from the SEC, Georgia righthander Michael Palazzone, went to the Indians with the fifth pick of the 32nd round.
• El Camino JC lefthander Kyle Petter has long been a favorite of BA bird-dog Dave Perkin and he's likely headed to college; he fell to Indians in the 34th round. He's committed to go across the country to Lynn (Fla.). The last pick of the 34th round, Pennsylvania prep pitcher Keenan Kish, also looks headed to Florida, as the Yankees selected him late. Kish has a projectable frame and has flashed 88-92 mph fastball velocity.
• Florida prep Shane Rowland, a catcher, went in the 36th round to the Red Sox. He's the son of Yankees director of international scouting Donny Rowland, who was previously the Angels scouting director.
