1 773 Tampa Bay Rays Michael Jarman LHP Oral Roberts Okla.
2 774 Pittsburgh Pirates Zach Wilson 3B Wilson HS, Long Beach Calif.
Long in the shadow of Wilson stars Ryan Dent and Aaron Hicks, Wilson is a legitimate prospect on his own merit. He has a prototypical, athletic 6-foot-2, 200-pound frame, and his 6.8-second speed in the 60 is rare for a third-base prospect. His primary tool is his bat. During the summer showcase season, Wilson began his swing from a dead start, with no hand movement or load. He now employs an inward leg kick, which led to dramatic improvement. Wilson's picturesque cut, which combines a short backswing with a long and level follow through, produces screaming line drives to all fields. He demonstrated his bat in a mid-April game when he drilled a 410-foot shot directly over the center-field fence at Redondo Union High. While his arm is adequate for the hot corner, Wilson will need to improve his glovework and footwork. Some organizations may be scared off by his Scott Boras Corp. representation and Arizona State commitment, but a lot of clubs are intrigued by Wilson's potential.
3 775 Kansas City Royals Ryan Morgan RHP Col de Levis HS, Montreal Mo.
4 776 Baltimore Orioles Jose Barajas RHP Western Nevada CC Nev.
5 777 San Francisco Giants Ryan Lormand 2B Houston Texas
6 778 Florida Marlins Jason Peacock 1B Florida Gulf Coast Fla.
7 779 Cincinnati Reds Michael Bohana RHP Kennesaw State (Ga.) Ga.
8 780 Chicago White Sox Jorge Castillo 1B Florida International Fla.
9 781 Washington Nationals Cory Mazzoni RHP Seneca Valley HS, Harmony, Pa. Pa.
Mazzoni has a clean, loose arm action and a good breaking ball, though it still needs work. He also has feel for a changeup. Mazzoni runs his fastball up to 92 despite his 6-foot-1, 170-pound frame.
10 782 Houston Astros Shane Wolf LHP Ithaca (N.Y.) N.Y.
11 783 Texas Rangers Chris Dove OF Elon N.C.
12 784 Oakland Athletics Ryan Doolittle RHP Cumberland (N.J.) CC N.J.
13 785 St. Louis Cardinals Chris Swauger OF The Citadel S.C.
14 786 Minnesota Twins Adan Severino OF Miami Fla.
15 787 Los Angeles Dodgers Cody Weiss RHP Parkland HS, Allentown, Pa. Pa.
16 788 Milwaukee Brewers Derrick Alfonso C Louisville Ky.
17 789 Toronto Blue Jays Justin Dalles C St. Petersburg (Fla.) JC Fla.
Catcher Justin Dalles has performed well this season. He has a strong arm and handles the pitching staff well. At the plate, he has a chance to hit and shows occasional power. He is signed to play with South Carolina.
18 790 Atlanta Braves Calvin Culver OF Los Angeles Pierce JC Calif.
19 791 Chicago Cubs Josh Whitlock RHP West Virginia W.Va.
20 792 Seattle Mariners Taylor Stanton RHP Diablo Valley (Calif.) JC Calif.
21 793 Detroit Tigers Brent Wyatt SS Lewis-Clark State (Idaho) Idaho
22 794 New York Mets John Servidio OF Barry (Fla.) Fla.
23 795 San Diego Padres Dean Anna SS Ball State Ind.
24 796 Philadelphia Phillies Ryan Bergh RHP Old Dominion Va.
25 797 Colorado Rockies Adam Jorgenson RHP Cal State Fullerton Calif.
26 798 Arizona Diamondbacks Alex Sogard LHP North Carolina State N.C.
Alex Sogard gives the Wolfpack another draftable lefty, presenting an opposite profile from Surkamp. Like Surkamp, he has a pro body, but he offers more velocity with less pitchability. He also throws a downer curveball with plus life, though he rarely throws it for a strike. Sogard is a draft-eligible sophomore.
27 799 Los Angeles Angels Kevin Nabors RHP South Alabama Ala.
28 800 New York Yankees Blake Monar LHP South Spencer HS, Rockport, Ind. Ind.
Few high school pitchers have a better pair of breaking pitches than lefthander Blake Monar does. His 12-to-6 curveball receives the most notoriety, and his slider is a potential out pitch as well. Monar's fastball is less impressive, parking in the mid-80s, and at 6-foot-2 and 185 pounds, he doesn't project to add much velocity. He's committed to Indiana, and he may not be signable if he doesn't go in the first five rounds.
29 801 Cleveland Indians Moises Montero C Chipola (Fla.) JC Fla. $200,000
30 802 Boston Red Sox Navery Moore RHP Battle Ground Academy, Franklin, Tenn. Tenn.
There isn't a more intriguing prep prospect in the state than righthander Navery Moore. Before undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2007, Moore was regarded as one of the best young arms in the nation, and he had been seen in the mid-90s and consistently in the low 90s as a 16-year-old. Moore was back on the mound this spring but not at full strength, as his fastball was 88-90 mph. Moore is 6-foot-2, 180 pounds with room to grow. He also throws a curveball and changeup that have projection but both are unpolished. Moore has a clean delivery and easy arm action and should be able to get back his arm strength. If so, he could vault up draft charts in three years. Committed to Vanderbilt, Moore will be a tough sign.
