Round Overall Team Player Position State Bonus
2 61 Los Angeles Dodgers Josh Lindblom RHP Ind. $663,000
The highest-drafted player from 2005 who still has yet to turn pro, Lindblom turned down $300,000 as a third-round pick of the Astros. After spending one year at Tennessee and two at Purdue, he'll likely go one round higher this June. Lindblom scuffled as a starter before the Boilermakers made him a reliever late in the season. Now that he no longer has to pace himself, Lindblom throws at 94-95 mph with heavy life as he goes full bore for one or two innings. His hard curveball has improved, and he has quickened his delivery as well. He also mixes in an occasional splitter. Lindblom throws strikes but works out of a higher arm slot, making his pitches easier to see and more hittable than they seemingly should be. He has a resilient arm and workhorse build at 6-foot-5 and 240 pounds, but his stuff has been so much more electric out of the pen, suggesting that is his best role as a pro.
4 138 Arizona Diamondbacks Ryne White OF Ind. $213,000
First baseman Ryne White is far and away the most advanced hitter in the state. He batted .333 this spring after finishing third in NCAA Division I with a .452 batting average in 2007, but he did increase his power (from eight to 12 homers) and continued to control the strike zone (35 walks, 21 strikeouts). White has a quick bat, tremendous hand-eye coordination and a whole-field approach. He made adjustments this year to get more power out of his stroke. He's short for a first baseman at 5-foot-11 and 205 pounds, but he has an average arm and could get a pro opportunity in the outfield, where he played as a freshman.
