1 1342 Tampa Bay Rays Royce Bolinger OF Chaparral HS, Scottsdale, Ariz. Ariz.
Bolinger has polish on the mound while lacking a present plus pitch. He's athletic enough to stick in the outfield and has a solid bat. He's a Gonzaga recruit who will play both ways for the Bulldogs.
2 1343 Pittsburgh Pirates Allen Ponder RHP Auburn-Montgomery Ala.
3 1344 Kansas City Royals Ray Anderson OF Lassiter HS, Marietta, Ga. Ga.
4 1345 Baltimore Orioles Zach Petersime RHP Rend Lake (Ill.) JC Ill.
5 1346 San Francisco Giants Kenneth Villines 2B Riverside HS, Durham, N.C. N.C.
6 1347 Florida Marlins Fred Atkins OF JC of Marin (Calif.) Calif.
7 1348 Cincinnati Reds Brendan Lobban LHP St. Joseph Regional HS, Montvale, N.J. N.J.
8 1349 Chicago White Sox Julian Kenner SS Whitney Young HS, Chicago Ill.
9 1350 Washington Nationals Colin Rooney SS Saddleback (Calif.) CC Calif.
10 1351 Houston Astros Grayson Garvin LHP Wesleyan School, Norcross, Ga. Ga.
Grayson Garvin is a projectable lefthander whose fastball has been seen in the 90s, but his velocity has been inconsistent as he also been gunned in the mid-80s. At 6-foot-5, 180 pounds, Garvin has room to grow and could be throwing in the low 90s in a few years as he has a clean arm action. He throws a curveball with plus projection but leans on it too much. He also offers a changeup and has command of all three pitches. Garvin is committed to Vanderbilt.
11 1352 Texas Rangers Kevin Torres C Puerto Rico Baseball Academy, Gurabo, P.R. P.R.
12 1353 Oakland Athletics Derek Benny RHP Roseville (Calif.) HS Calif.
Benny topped out at 92 mph in the fall and had excellent life on his fastball, then wasn't at his best physically this spring, leading him to struggle with his delivery. That hurt the quality of his stuff, and he's expected to head a strong Fresno State recruiting class.
13 1354 St. Louis Cardinals Chris Taylor C Charlotte N.C.
14 1355 Minnesota Twins Mike Spina 3B Cincinnati Ohio
15 1356 Los Angeles Dodgers Ryan Arp C Upper Iowa Iowa
16 1357 Milwaukee Brewers James Kottaras 2B Milliken Mills HS, Markham, Ontario Ontario
17 1358 Atlanta Braves Nick Croce C Mission Bay (Calif.) HS Calif.
18 1359 Chicago Cubs Ashton Florko LHP British Columbia British Columbia
19 1360 Seattle Mariners Andrew Kittredge RHP Ferris HS, Spokane, Wash. Wash.
Andrew Kittredge has been likened to Yankees righthander Ian Kennedy for his pitchability and smallish frame. He got on radar screens by throwing 88-90 mph last summer and touching 91 in the fall. He complements it with a sweepy breaking ball. A Washington recruit, Kittredge was expected to go to college.
20 1361 Detroit Tigers Edward Linseman LHP Our Lady of Lourdes HS, Guelph, Ontario Ontario
21 1362 New York Mets David Phillips 1B Texarkana (Texas) CC Texas
22 1363 Philadelphia Phillies Justin Zumwalde 1B Sabino HS, Tucson Ariz.
23 1364 Colorado Rockies Brad McAtee RHP UC Davis Calif.
McAtee has good velocity, sitting 88-91 and pushing 92 mph. He has good armside run on the pitch, and has a solid-average changeup as his best secondary offering. He's physical and durable. His biggest weakness is his lack of a breaking ball, and he throws a decent cutter to compensate.
24 1365 Arizona Diamondbacks Jeremy Rathjen OF Memorial HS, Houston Texas
Rice recruit Jeremy Rathjen got a lot of exposure as a junior at Houston's Memorial High, when scouts came to see eventual Blue Jays first-round pick Kevin Ahrens. Rathjen's bat isn't as advanced as Ahrens' was, and at 6-foot-4 and 175 pounds, he must get stronger. But he's athletic, a former two-way player in football for Memorial who has solid speed and arm strength. If his frame and power develop as expected, he could be a top-three-rounds pick in 2011. Because he's a good student and not ready for pro ball, he'll be difficult to sign away from the Owls.
25 1366 Los Angeles Angels Jared Clark 1B Cal State Fullerton Calif.
First baseman Jared Clark has had trouble coming back from a knee injury from a pickup football game in 2006, though he shows well-above-average raw power in batting practice. He lost athleticism and feel for hitting in his layoff, but when he makes contact the ball jumps off his bat. He led the Titans in home runs, RBIs, doubles and walks, so he's still a factor.
26 1367 New York Yankees Creede Simpson SS Auburn (Ala.) HS Ala.
27 1368 Cleveland Indians Dean Lagonosky OF Haverford (Pa.) Pa.
28 1369 Boston Red Sox Jon Griffin 1B Manatee (Fla.) CC Fla.
