14 429 Toronto Blue Jays Chris Holguin RHP Texas
Lubbock Christian went 53-4, including a 38-game winning streak, but two of its losses came in the regional playoffs and the Chapparals fell short of the NAIA World Series. Pro teams are interested in the two righthanders who took those defeats, Chris Holguin and Gary Poynter. A senior, Holguin has the better pitchability of the two, and despite being 6 feet tall, he can reach 96 mph with his fastball. His slider is a decent second pitch.
35 1046 Baltimore Orioles Buck Britton 2B Texas
39 1185 San Diego Padres Gary Poynter RHP Texas
Drafted twice previously, Poynter pitched two seasons at Weatherford (Texas) JC before transferring to Arkansas last fall before coming to Lubbock Christian at the semester break. He has a better build at 6-foot-3 and 225 pound, and a 90-94 fastball. But he often has to dial back on his velocity to throw strikes, and his breaking ball lacks consistency.
