1 863 Tampa Bay Rays Brandon Magee OF Centennial HS, Corona, Calif. Calif.
2 864 Pittsburgh Pirates Kevin Komstadius 1B East Valley HS, Yakima, Wash. Wash.
A Washington State recruit to note is Kevin Komstadius, a slugging first baseman who may be athletic enough to play outfield.
3 865 Kansas City Royals Beau Brett 1B Artesia HS, Lynwood, Calif. Wash.
The biggest prep name in the state belonged to first baseman Beau Brett, a Southern California recruit and nephew of ex-big leaguers Ken and George Brett. His father Bobby Brett owns the Northwest League's Spokane Indians, so Brett has been around the game all his life. He has a long lefthanded swing that generates good loft power, and most scouts consider his raw power well ahead of his hitting ability. Most expect him to go to USC.
4 866 Baltimore Orioles Dennis Perez C Universidad de Puerto Rico-Arecibo P.R.
5 867 San Francisco Giants Rob Flanigan 1B North Georgia College & State Ga.
6 868 Florida Marlins Ricky Orton 3B UNC Greensboro N.C.
7 869 Cincinnati Reds Ben Hunter RHP Wake Forest N.C.
8 870 Chicago White Sox Randall Thorpe OF Heritage HS, Colleyville, Texas Texas
Randall Thorpe rated as the fastest player at the 2007 Area Code Games, running a 6.4-second 60-yard dash. He also has a strong arm, which makes him a standout defender in center field. But teams are unlikely to meet his asking price to keep him away from Texas A&M because they question his bat. He needs to add strength to his 6-foot-1, 170-pound frame, and he struggled to hit .300 against high school pitching this spring.
9 871 Washington Nationals Chris Heston RHP Seminole (Fla.) CC Fla.
10 872 Houston Astros Chris Jackson SS Virginia Commonwealth Va.
Third baseman Chris Jackson is a plus defender in the infield and a gap-to-gap hitter at the plate
11 873 Texas Rangers Charlie Robertson RHP Bella Vista HS, Fair Oaks, Calif. Calif.
12 874 Oakland Athletics Justin Murray RHP Kansas State Kan.
13 875 St. Louis Cardinals Brett Lilley 2B Notre Dame Ind.
14 876 Minnesota Twins Joe Loftus 3B Academy of the Holy Angels, Richfield, Minn. Minn.
Joe Loftus has prototype third-base tools. He's a 6-foot-3, 205-pounder with a lot of power potential and arm strength. He's also a good athlete who shows a high-80s sinker and a hard breaking ball on the mound. Whether he'll get drafted high enough to pass up his Vanderbilt scholarship remains in question, however. If he does make it to the Commodores, he'll take over for departing superstar Pedro Alvarez at third base.
15 877 Los Angeles Dodgers Jonathan Runnels LHP Rice Texas
16 878 Milwaukee Brewers Tommy Collier RHP Cypress-Fairbanks HS, Cypress, Texas Texas
17 879 Toronto Blue Jays Justin Cryer RHP Mississippi Miss.
Justin Cryer is 6-foot-2, 215-pounds.A redshirt sophomore, Cryer missed his first two seasons with the Rebels due to injury. He finally got on the mound last year and assumed the set-up role in front of Bittle this season. He offers a fastball between 90-92 mph and a slider that is sometimes average but inconsistent. With a record of 2-4, 1.30 in 27 innings this spring, Cryer has been a vital part of the Rebels' staff.
18 880 Atlanta Braves Josh Moody LHP Western Nevada CC Nev.
19 881 Chicago Cubs Sean Buckley 3B King HS, Tampa Fla.
20 882 Seattle Mariners Stephen Penney RHP UC Riverside Calif.
