1 1397 Tampa Bay Rays Chris Matulis LHP Park Vista HS, Lake Worth, Fla. Fla.
2 1398 Pittsburgh Pirates Jordan Craft OF Kennesaw Mountain HS, Kennesaw, Ga. Ga.
3 1399 Kansas City Royals Steve Gilgenbach LHP Arkansas-Little Rock Ark.
Steve Gilgenbach lacks consistency, but he's a 6-foot-3, 220-pound lefty who pitches at 90-92 mph on his best days. He's still fine-tuning his delivery, his command and his slurvy slider.
4 1400 Baltimore Orioles Jared Eskew LHP Cal Poly Calif.
5 1401 San Francisco Giants Abe Ruiz 3B Pacific Grove (Calif.) HS Calif.
Arizona State recruit Abe Ruiz resembles Brett Wallace in that he's a bat-first corner infielder, but he's not the hitter Wallace is. He has a better body but may also struggle to stay at third. He has an above-average arm, above-average raw power and a good idea at the plate. Scouts had a hard time seeing him against premium pitching this spring, and he's indicated a desire to go to college.
6 1402 Florida Marlins Jeff Urlaub LHP Nevada-Las Vegas Nev.
7 1403 Cincinnati Reds David Torcise LHP South Florida Fla.
8 1404 Chicago White Sox Dan Hayden C Xavier Ohio
9 1405 Washington Nationals Anthony Coletti LHP South Broward HS, Hollywood, Fla. Fla.
10 1406 Houston Astros Nathan Metroka OF Compton (Calif.) CC Calif.
11 1407 Texas Rangers Lejuan Hill OF Austin Peay Tenn.
12 1408 Oakland Athletics Coley Crank C Pinole Valley HS, Pinole, Calif. Calif.
13 1409 St. Louis Cardinals Ray Asaro OF UC Irvine Calif.
14 1410 Minnesota Twins Tom Farmer RHP Akron Ohio
15 1411 Milwaukee Brewers Kayvon Bahramzadeh RHP Catalina Foothills HS, Tucson Ariz.
A four-year starter, Bahramzadeh flashes 91-92 mph fastballs with good sink and life. His low-elbow delivery worries some scouts, and he's got enough power as a first baseman to contribute in college.
16 1412 Atlanta Braves David Walters RHP Francis Marion (S.C.) S.C.
17 1413 Chicago Cubs Chad Cregar OF Western Kentucky Ky.
In his first season in the Sun Belt Conference, outfielder Chad Cregar led the league in homers (20) and RBIs (78, one shy of the Western Kentucky record) entering NCAA regional play. A transfer from Northwest Mississippi CC, he's a lefthanded hitter with size (6-foot-3, 221 pounds) and strength. He does have some holes in his swing that he'll have to close against more advanced pitching.
18 1414 Seattle Mariners Rich O'Donald RHP Dickinson HS, Wilmington, Del. Del.
19 1415 Detroit Tigers Alan Avila 2B Archbishop McCarthy HS, Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Fla.
20 1416 New York Mets Matt Bischoff RHP Purdue Ind.
