1 1073 Tampa Bay Rays Jordan Leyland 1B Sam Dimas (Calif.) HS Calif.
2 1074 Pittsburgh Pirates Kyle Morgan OF San Francisco Calif.
3 1075 Kansas City Royals Nick Purdy RHP St. Mary's SS, Cobourg, Ontario Ontario
4 1076 Baltimore Orioles Dan Eastham RHP Nevada Nev.
5 1077 San Francisco Giants Matt Way LHP Washington State Wash.
Washington State's second draft pick was expected to be lefthander Matt Way, who moved from the bullpen into the rotation late. He was excellent last summer in the West Coast Collegiate League and continued to be a strike thrower with solid-average stuff. He works off a sinking fastball that sits in the upper 80s and a plus changeup that has screwball action. He's got decent size and a clean delivery and might throw harder down the line. His delivery gives him a little deception. His slider is a bit short to stay as a starter, but he's shown a durable arm as a college reliever.
6 1078 Florida Marlins Brandon Todd RHP South Carolina S.C.
7 1079 Cincinnati Reds Erik Gregersen RHP Stephen F. Austin State Texas
8 1080 Chicago White Sox Jordan Keegan OF Silverado HS, Las Vegas Nev.
9 1081 Washington Nationals John Lambert LHP Santa Fe (Fla.) CC Fla.
10 1082 Houston Astros Austin Wood RHP Niceville (Fla.) HS Fla.
11 1083 Texas Rangers Jack Armstrong Jr. RHP Jupiter (Fla.) HS Fla.
Jack Armstrong Jr. is the son of former major leaguer Jack Sr., and at 6-foot-7 is two inches taller than his father. Armstrong is a tremendous athlete and is a legitimate basketball prospect as well, and he's committed to Vanderbilt. He was an Aflac All-American last summer and has shown velocity up to 92 mph but has been inconsistent this spring. Armstrong has yet to focus on pitching, which makes it hard for scouts to decide what to make of him. He has shown flashes of top-tier stuff but also has had his share of lackluster performances this spring.
12 1084 Oakland Athletics Jon Berti SS Troy (Mich.) HS Mich.
13 1085 St. Louis Cardinals Chris Notti RHP Moorpark (Calif.) JC Calif.
14 1086 Minnesota Twins Miers Quigley LHP Alabama Ala.
At 6-foot-5, 220 pounds, Quigley has a pitcher's body and throws his fastball between 89-91 mph. His curveball is average and changeup has improved this season. After being a highly touted draft prospect out of high school, Quigley struggled with command and pitchability in his first two seasons at Alabama, but this year has shown signs of putting it all together.
15 1087 Los Angeles Dodgers Jake New OF Tennessee Tech Tenn.
16 1088 Milwaukee Brewers Evan Bronson LHP Trinity (Texas) Texas
17 1089 Toronto Blue Jays Ryan Koch RHP Florida Southern Fla.
18 1090 Atlanta Braves Cecil Tanner RHP Ware County HS, Waycross, Ga. Ga.
A 10-inch growth spurt and 10 mph velocity jump over the past two years put Tanner near the top of follow lists in Georgia. Now at 6-feet-6, 190 pounds, he is a projectable righthander still filling out and getting comfortable in his frame. He consistently throws in the low 90s, touching 95, but had a disappointing senior season in which he failed to pick up any wins. Consistently repeating is delivery has been a struggle for Tanner, affecting his command and secondary stuff. He has flashed feel for a breaking ball, but his curveball is currently below-average. Tanner has athletic bloodlines and his father Berry played at South Florida. He's committed to Georgia, and unless he's drafted early, signing him could be a challenge. He has plenty of arm strength but is also plenty raw, meaning three years of refinement in college could make him a much better prospect come 2011.
19 1091 Chicago Cubs Mike Brenly C Nevada-Las Vegas Nev.
20 1092 Seattle Mariners Chris Kirkland RHP Memphis Tenn.
21 1093 Detroit Tigers Steve Gilman RHP Yale Conn.
Gilman has more arm strength--he reached 94 in the Atlantic Collegiate League two summers ago and topped out at 92 this spring--and a decent hard slider, helping him to 4-0, 1.00 with five saves as Yale's closer this spring. He profiles as a middle reliever in pro ball.
22 1094 New York Mets Jake Goldberg RHP College of Charleston S.C.
23 1095 San Diego Padres Jake Shadle RHP Graham-Kapowsin HS, Graham, Wash. Wash.
24 1096 Philadelphia Phillies Mike Cisco RHP South Carolina S.C.
25 1097 Colorado Rockies Patrick Rose OF UC Santa Barbara Calif.
26 1098 Arizona Diamondbacks T.J. Hose RHP East Carolina N.C.
27 1099 Los Angeles Angels Kyle Hurst RHP South Mountain (Ariz.) CC Ariz.
28 1100 New York Yankees Chris Dwyer LHP Salisbury (Conn.) School Conn.
Anthony Hewitt isn't the only intriguing talent at the Salisbury School. Six-foot-3 lefthander Chris Dwyer is an impressive athlete who also starred as a quarterback for the Crimson Knights, but his baseball prowess earned him a scholarship to Clemson. Dwyer ran his fastball up to 92-93 mph early this season on a trip to Florida, but he worked in the 88-90 range most of the year without much life. He flashes an average breaking ball but lacks consistency with the pitch. Dwyer is already 20 and will be a draft-eligible freshman at Clemson, and most scouts consider him nearly unsignable this June.
29 1101 Cleveland Indians Adam Warren RHP North Carolina N.C.
30 1102 Boston Red Sox Richie Wasielewski LHP Brunswick (Ga.) HS Ga. $135,000
