1 832 Washington Nationals Matt Swynenberg RHP Black Hawk (Ill.) JC Iowa
2 833 Seattle Mariners Regan Flaherty 1B Deering HS, Portland, Maine Maine
Regan Flaherty is following his older brother Ryan to Vanderbilt. He's got some projection but is raw in all phases and also seems certain to head to school.
3 834 San Diego Padres Vince Belnome 2B West Virginia W.Va.
4 835 Pittsburgh Pirates Kyle Hooper RHP Saugus (Calif.) HS Calif.
5 836 Baltimore Orioles Kyle Hoppy OF Orchard Park (N.Y.) HS N.Y. $150,000
6 837 San Francisco Giants Jamaine Cotton RHP Western Oklahoma State JC Okla.
7 838 Atlanta Braves Eric Swegman RHP Young Harris (Ga.) JC Ga.
8 839 Cincinnati Reds Derek Poppert SS San Francisco Calif.
9 840 Detroit Tigers Tobin Mateychick RHP Enid (Okla.) HS Okla.
Righthander Tobin Mateychick is extremely projectable and could blossom into an early-round 2012 draft pick after three years at Wichita State. He's a 6-foot-5, 185-pounder with a quick arm that delivers fastballs topping out at 94 mph. "He may throw 100 mph one day," one area scout said. Mateychick also can run his slider up to 84 mph, though it features more cutting action than bite. His changeup is similarly raw. He's very athletic for his size and doubles as a center fielder with good speed. He wants second-round money to sign and is unlikely to get it.
10 841 Colorado Rockies David DiNatale OF Miami Fla.
11 842 Kansas City Royals Eric Peterson INF Liberty HS, Spangle, Wash. Wash.
12 843 Oakland Athletics Conner Crumbliss 2B Emporia State (Kan.) Kan.
13 844 Texas Rangers Derek Law RHP Seton LaSalle Catholic HS, Pittsburgh Pa.
Righthander Derek Law's father, Joe, reached the major league for four days in the late 1970s with the Athletics but never appeared in a game. The younger Law caught scouts' attention at the Perfect Game/World Wood Bat Championships in Jupiter, Fla., last fall, running his fastball up to 93 mph. He struck out 13 in a no-hitter in his first game this season, but his velocity has been down all spring, topping out at 88-90 and sitting in the 81-84 range down the stretch. His delivery needs work. His curveball and slider can both be better-than-average pitches when he's on, especially the curve. Law is committed to Miami Dade CC but is considered signable in the top 15 to 20 rounds.
14 845 Cleveland Indians Nick Sarianides RHP Chattahoochee Valley (Ala.) JC Ala. $100,000
15 846 Arizona Diamondbacks Brian Budrow RHP Utah Utah
Senior righthander Brian Budrow spent his first two seasons at Oregon State, where he was part of back-to-back College World Series winners, but he totaled just nine innings in those two years and transferred to Utah to get more time on the mound. He has shown scouts an 88-91 mph fastball with sink and a slider. He could get a chance as a senior sign.
16 847 Los Angeles Dodgers Bobby Hernandez RHP Barry (Fla.) Fla.
17 848 Florida Marlins Holden Sprague RHP Fresno State Calif.
18 849 St. Louis Cardinals Justin Edwards LHP Kennesaw State Ga.
19 850 Toronto Blue Jays Zach Outman RHP Saint Louis Mo.
20 851 Houston Astros Eric Anderson RHP Mountain Vista HS, Highlands Ranch, Colo. Colo.
21 852 Minnesota Twins Pat Light RHP Christian Brothers Academy, Lincroft, N.J. N.J.
Righthander Pat Light opened eyes on the showcase circuit last year, showing a 91-92 mph fastball with vicious sink, but he came out of basketball season with a bout of tendinitis and sat in the mid-80s most of this spring. He's plenty projectable at 6-foot-5, 185 pounds, and he could blossom into the next Monmouth ace.
22 853 Chicago White Sox Robby Cummings 3B UC Santa Barbara Calif.
23 854 New York Mets Brian Needham RHP Lamar Texas
24 855 New York Yankees Aaron Meade LHP Missouri State Mo.
25 856 Milwaukee Brewers Geno Escalante C Rodriguez HS, Fairfield, Calif. Calif.
26 857 Philadelphia Phillies Justin Beal RHP Missouri Southern State Mo.
27 858 Boston Red Sox Eric Curtis RHP Miami Dade JC Fla.
28 859 Tampa Bay Rays Zac Rosscup LHP Chemeketa (Ore.) CC Ore.
29 860 Chicago Cubs Jordan Petraitis 3B Miami (Ohio) Ohio
Senior Jordan Petraitis has the body and tools to be a successful third baseman, though he'll have to turn on more pitches and produce more home runs in pro ball. The 6-foot-3, 201-pounder has strength in his righthanded swing but doesn't drive the ball as much as scouts would like. A former shortstop, he has a strong arm and solid range at the hot corner.
30 861 Los Angeles Angels Carson Andrew RHP Jacksonville Fla.
Jacksonville righthander Carson Andrew tops out at 92 mph and missed time this spring with a muscle strain in his right shoulder. He threw well against Kyle Heckathorn and Kennesaw State in front of a slew of scouts to boost his draft stock and was expected to ride his pitchability to being picked in the first 10 rounds.
