1 682 Washington Nationals Kyle Breault SS Northville (Mich.) HS Mich.
2 683 Seattle Mariners David Rollins LHP San Jacinto (Texas) JC Texas
3 684 San Diego Padres Jeff Ibarra LHP Lee (Tenn.) Tenn.
4 685 Pittsburgh Pirates Jose Hernandez INF Texas-San Antonio Texas
5 686 Baltimore Orioles Mike Mooney SS Florida Fla.
Middle infielder Mike Mooney has little power and is an average runner and defender. He profiles as a second baseman and likely fits better as a senior sign.
6 687 San Francisco Giants Adam Champion LHP Arkansas-Little Rock Ark.
7 688 Atlanta Braves Lucas LaPoint RHP Knight HS, Palmdale, Calif. Calif.
8 689 Cincinnati Reds Chris Richburg 1B Texas Tech Texas
9 690 Detroit Tigers Cory Hamilton RHP UC Irvine Calif.
10 691 Colorado Rockies Jose Rivera 2B Universidad Interamericana (P.R.) P.R.
11 692 Kansas City Royals Scott Kelley RHP Penn State Pa.
Penn State senior righthander Scott Kelley split time between starting and relieving this spring and posted numbers similar to Reed's: 4-5, 6.03. Kelley is a bit undersized at 6 feet, 200 pounds, but he's got athleticism and arm strength. His fastball sits at 90-91 and tops out at 94, though it can be straight and up in the zone. Kelley's secondary stuff is below-average, and he figures to be drafted around the 15th round thanks to his arm strength.
12 693 Oakland Athletics Kent Walton OF Brigham Young Utah
Kent Walton has also been a force for the Cougars this season. Coming off labrum surgery in the fall, he has not been able to play the field but has been fine at the plate, batting .377/.448/.583 as a senior. Walton put on some weight after the surgery, which has taken away from his speed a little bit. While he was running a 6.5-second 60-yard dash last year and playing center field, he's now at 6.7 seconds. The thicker lower half has given him a more solid base and increased his power, however. Walton has good plate discipline, can handle velocity and stays on hard breaking pitches. A 42nd-round pick in 2008 by the Athletics, he'll likely be a late-round pick again, especially since he didn't get back out into the outfield this year. His best profile as a pro might be as a second baseman.
13 694 Texas Rangers Danny Lima SS Barry (Fla.) Fla.
14 695 Cleveland Indians Danny Jimenez LHP John A. Logan (Ill.) JC Ill. $125,000
Danny Jimenez was Illinois' top high school lefthander (and a 37th-round pick of the Cardinals) a year ago, and now he's the state's best juco prospect. Jimenez' stuff is similar to what it was a year ago, as he usually pitches from 87-91 mph and maintains that velocity into the late innings. He has tightened up his curveball and gotten more comfortable with his changeup, but both pitches still need work. His delivery isn't the cleanest and he doesn't have a lot of projection remaining in his 6-foot-3, 215-pound frame, but he has a strong left arm and gets results. If he doesn't turn pro, he'll return to John A. Logan CC for his sophomore season.
15 696 Arizona Diamondbacks Chris Odegaard RHP Minnesota State-Mankato Minn.
16 697 Los Angeles Dodgers Jimmy Marshall RHP Florida State Fla.
17 698 Florida Marlins Tommy Peale RHP Lewis-Clark State (Idaho) Idaho
Senior righthander Tommy Peale has below-average stuff, but fills up the strike zone and could get a shot.
18 699 St. Louis Cardinals Matt Adams C Slippery Rock (Pa.) Pa.
Slippery Rock's Matt Adams had a huge junior year, batting .495/.566/.853 with 14 homers and 64 RBIs. A burly 6-foot-3, 245-pound slugger, Adams has a good swing and a mature offensive approach to go along with solid-average to plus power. He's adequate at best defensively at first base, and he's well-below-average behind the plate.
19 700 Toronto Blue Jays Brad Glenn OF Arizona Ariz.
Third baseman Brad Glenn is lucky to be alive after he severed an artery in his right wrist when he fell through a glass coffee table playing video games in the offseason. He recovered and hit .256 with 12 doubles and nine home runs this year, so he could be a senior sign.
20 701 Houston Astros Robby Donovan RHP Stetson Fla.
Stetson righty Robby Donovan has a better body than either of them and has run his fastball up to 94 mph at times. The 6-foot-5 righty sits in the same average range, though, at 88-91, and spots his fringy changeup and curve. He hasn't had the quality results of Andrew and Burgos due to his lack of movement on his fastball and inconsistent command. His best performance came in front of scouts in fall ball, when he touched 94 despite a hamstring pull.
21 702 Minnesota Twins E.J. Encinosa RHP Coral Park HS, Miami Fla.
22 703 Chicago White Sox Goldy Simmons RHP San Diego State Calif.
23 704 New York Mets John Church RHP West Florida Fla.
24 705 New York Yankees Kevin Mahoney 3B Canisius N.Y.
New York's position player crop is led by a pair of college corner infielders. Canisius third baseman Kevin Mahoney went undrafted in 2008 despite batting .369 with 12 home runs, but he opened eyes last summer in the Coastal Plain League, which he led in homers (13), runs (43), RBIs (43), slugging (.586) and total bases (112), ranking as the circuit's No. 2 prospect. He hit for even more power this spring, leading the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference in homers (22) and RBIs (62). Scouts grade Mahoney's raw power as a 55 to 60 on the 20-80 scale, and his current power as a 50. He's a smart, disciplined hitter with a compact lefthanded stroke, and he never gives up an at-bat. Mahoney is a below-average runner, but he has good baserunning instincts and just missed posting a 20-20 season, stealing 19 bags in 20 tries. He works hard at his defense and is serviceable at third base, with decent hands and adequate arm strength but below-average range. Mahoney could be a cost-saving senior sign in the top 10 rounds.
25 706 Milwaukee Brewers Austin Pressley RHP Franklin Monroe HS, Arcanum, Ohio Ohio
26 707 Philadelphia Phillies Evan Porter SS Nebraska-Omaha Neb.
27 708 Boston Red Sox Chris Court RHP Stephen F. Austin State Texas
28 709 Tampa Bay Rays Trevor Petersen RHP Hallsville (Texas) HS Texas
Righthander Trevor Petersen has size (6-foot-3, 215 pounds) and arm strength (his fastball sits at 88-90 mph and touches 94) on his side. He slings the ball from a low arm angle that makes it difficult to stay on top of his slurvy slider and will need a lot of work, but the raw material is there. He's considered signable despite a commitment to Louisiana Tech.
29 710 Chicago Cubs Jeff Pruitt OF Cal State Northridge Calif.
Outfielder Jeff Pruitt has a pro body at 6-foot-5, 210 pounds, with plus tools in his arm strength, speed (6.5 seconds in the 60) and defense. A redshirt sophomore, Pruitt has not hit enough to get scouts that interested, batting .212 this season and striking out 53 times in 179 at-bats.
Pruitt agreed to a $60,000 bonus with the Cubs on June 15, but the deal was voided on July 10, making him a free agent.
30 711 Los Angeles Angels Jordan Drake OF Elsinore HS, Wildomar, Calif. Calif.
