1 1223 Tampa Bay Rays Brett Parsons OF Navarro (Texas) JC Texas
Outfielder Brett Parsons is a 6-foot-4, 215-pound slugger with power to all fields. His swing can get long and his range and arm are a little shaky in the outfield, but his bat can carry him.
2 1224 Pittsburgh Pirates Chris Simmons C Army N.Y.
3 1225 Kansas City Royals Doug Joyce C University HS, Malibu, Calif. Wash.
4 1226 Baltimore Orioles Peter Birdwell RHP Riverside (Calif.) CC Calif.
5 1227 San Francisco Giants Correy Figueroa 2B St. Petersburg (Fla.) JC Fla.
6 1228 Florida Marlins Alan Williams OF Mangham (La.) HS La.
7 1229 Cincinnati Reds Justin Walker LHP Lamar Texas
8 1230 Chicago White Sox Mason Radeke RHP Santa Barbara (Calif.) HS Calif.
9 1231 Washington Nationals Mike Rayl LHP Palm Beach (Fla.) CC Fla.
10 1232 Houston Astros Tony McClendon OF Damien HS, La Verne, Calif. Calif.
11 1233 Texas Rangers Brian Feekin LHP Iowa Western CC Iowa
The best prospect on Iowa Western, which qualified for the last two Juco World Series, is Brian Feekin. Feekin, who redshirted at Nebraska in 2007, is also a work in progress. A 6-foot-6, 225-pound lefty who can run his fastball up to 93 mph, he'd be a perfect target if the draft-and-follow process still existed.
12 1234 Oakland Athletics Cody Hawn 3B Walters State (Tenn.) CC Tenn.
13 1235 St. Louis Cardinals Kevin Siegrist LHP Palm Beach (Fla.) CC Fla.
14 1236 Minnesota Twins Pat Lehman RHP George Washington D.C.
15 1237 Los Angeles Dodgers Jett Bandy C Thousand Oaks (Calif.) HS Calif.
16 1238 Milwaukee Brewers Joe Scott SS Cal State Fullerton Calif.
17 1239 Toronto Blue Jays Kyle Petter LHP West HS, Torrance, Calif. Calif.
Petter's build and stuff are reminiscent of Rob Rasmussen, selected by the Dodgers in the 2007 draft and currently pitching at UCLA. High strung and energetic, Petter is an aggressive pitcher who challenges hitters with an 87-89 mph fastball that reaches 92 in relief outings. Roughly 90 percent of his pitches are fastballs, but he will mix in the occasional curve and change. Both need to be improved and developed. Petters frantic pace and unrefined mechanics cause his command to suffer, but he displays a terrific ability to battle his way out of jams. As a starter he runs up high pitch counts as well as high strikeout totals. However, his personality may be better suited to short relief work. In a recent closer stint he blew away all three hitters, and showed velocity and command he rarely displays as a starter. Petter has committed to Cal State Fullerton, another impressive improvement after he had been academically ineligible as a sophomore.
18 1240 Atlanta Braves Ian Gilley SS Northside HS, Fort Smith, Ark. Ark.
Shortstop/righthander Ian Gilley is a raw two-way player who hasn't signed with a four-year school. Committed to Texarkana (Texas) CC, he has arm strength (87-89 mph) and some pop in his bat. His tools haven't translated into performance yet, so he would have been a perfect player to draft-and-follow when those rules were in effect. He's 6-foot-1 and 195 pounds, so he may have more of a future as a shortstop.
19 1241 Chicago Cubs Jordan Petraitis SS Miami (Ohio) Ohio
20 1242 Seattle Mariners Henry Cotto OF Gateway (Ariz.) CC Ariz.
21 1243 Detroit Tigers Eric Broberg RHP Seminole (Fla.) CC Fla.
22 1244 New York Mets Tyler Howe C Kentucky Ky.
23 1245 San Diego Padres Zach Dascenzo C Laurel Highlands HS, Uniontown, Pa. Pa.
24 1246 Philadelphia Phillies Mike Petello OF Scottsdale (Ariz.) CC Ariz.
25 1247 Colorado Rockies Dean Espy SS Red Mountain HS, Mesa, Ariz. Ariz.
26 1248 Arizona Diamondbacks Brendan Duffy OF Oral Roberts Okla.
