1 982 Washington Nationals Nick DeSantiago C Hays HS, Kyle, Texas Texas
2 983 Seattle Mariners Hawkins Gebbers 2B Biola (Calif.) Calif.
3 984 San Diego Padres Jon Berger RHP San Diego State Calif.
4 985 Pittsburgh Pirates Pat Irvine OF Elon N.C.
Senior outfielder Pat Irvine should get drafted based on his feel for hitting. Irvine batted .402 this spring.
5 986 Baltimore Orioles Tyler Naquin OF Klein Collins HS, Spring, Texas Texas
6 987 San Francisco Giants Jake Dunning SS Indiana Ind.
7 988 Atlanta Braves Tyler Stubblefield SS Kennesaw State Ga.
Shortstop/third baseman Tyler Stubblefield has surprising strength in his 5-foot-11, 180-pound frame. He's a good defender who could be a utilityman with his average speed and experience all over the infield.
8 989 Cincinnati Reds Will Stramp 3B Lubbock Christian (Texas) Texas
Outfielder Will Stramp won MVP honors at the NAIA World Series after leading Lubbock Christian to its second-ever championship. A 6-foot-3, 185-pound senior, he batted .498 with 27 homers and 99 RBIs, leading the NAIA in hitting, hits (115) and total bases (225). The righthanded hitter, who spent his first two college seasons at Dallas Baptist, has plus speed and decent tools across the board. He's capable of playing all three outfield positions.
9 990 Detroit Tigers Cody Keefer OF Davis (Calif.) HS Calif.
10 991 Colorado Rockies Coty Woods RHP Middle Tennessee State Tenn.
Middle Tennessee won the Sun Belt Conference behind Brentz, the team's No. 2 starter who also was tied for the national home run lead with 28 as regionals began. While he was playing his way into first-round consideration for 2010, he helped attract attention to other Blue Raiders, led by junior reliever Coty Woods, the team's closer who doesn't have a plus pitch but keeps the ball down and spots his slider. He could go in the 15th-18th round.
11 992 Kansas City Royals Claudio Bavera LHP Cochise (Ariz.) JC Ariz.
Cochise brings in players from all over the globe, and one of its prospects is from Venezuela. Keep an eye on lefthander Claudio Bavera as a potential late-round pick. He's a little undersized at 5-foot-11, 190 pounds, but that's less of an issue for lefthanders. Bavera generally pitches around 86 mph, but he can reach back and dial it up to 90-91 for short stints. He has a hard breaking ball that he aims at the back foot of righthanded batters, and an average changeup. Bavera has a rubber arm and very good work ethic.
12 993 Oakland Athletics Mike Bolsinger RHP Arkansas Ark.
Righthander Mike Bolsinger pitched five shutout innings of relief to beat Florida State in the first game of the NCAA super regionals. The 6-foot-2, 212-pounder has touched 95 mph in the past, but now operates at 88-90 mph with a sinker. He throws strikes with his two-seam fastball and a slurvy slider, and he competes. He projects as a middle reliever in pro ball.
13 994 Texas Rangers Kyle Rhoad OF Eastern Michigan Mich.
14 995 Cleveland Indians Chris Kersten 3B Louisiana Tech La.
15 996 Arizona Diamondbacks Brad Wilson RHP Cal Poly Pomona Calif.
16 997 Los Angeles Dodgers Steve Cilladi C Kansas Wesleyan Kan.
17 998 Florida Marlins Tom Buske RHP Minnesota Minn.
18 999 St. Louis Cardinals Devin Goodwin SS Delta State (Miss.) Miss.
19 1000 Toronto Blue Jays Robert Benincasa RHP Armwood HS, Seffner, Fla. Fla.
20 1001 Houston Astros Brenden Stines RHP Ball State Ind.
21 1002 Minnesota Twins Nick Freitas OF Southern Utah Utah
Southern Utah outfielder Nick Freitas is an enigma. He grew up in Hawaii and then spent a year at Miami before transferring to play for the Thunderbirds. He has big tools, running a 6.6-second 60-yard dash, throwing 96 mph from the outfield and showing above-average raw power. The tools have shown up in the statistics, too. Freitas hit .347/.424/.647 this year, though he put up similar numbers as a junior and didn't get drafted. Some scouts are skeptical about the move from Miami to Southern Utah and raised questions about his makeup.
22 1003 Chicago White Sox Chase Cooney RHP Volunteer State (Tenn.) CC Tenn.
23 1004 New York Mets James Schroeder 3B Southern Arkansas Ark.
24 1005 New York Yankees Andrew Aplin OF Vanden HS, Fairfield, Calif. Calif.
25 1006 Milwaukee Brewers Jacobbi McDaniel 3B Madison (Fla.) County HS Fla.
26 1007 Philadelphia Phillies Colin Kleven RHP Mountain SS, Langley, B.C British Columbia
Righthander Colin Kleven has a great body at 6-foot-5 and 195 pounds, but mechanically he's all over the place. He can throw 90 mph and projects for more, and likely needs another year of junior college to learn how to control his body and become more refined.
27 1008 Boston Red Sox Blaze Tart RHP Pendleton School, Bradenton, Fla. Fla.
Another late pop-up was UNC Wilmington recruit Blaze Tart, a righthander originally from Durham, N.C., who attended the Pendleton Academy in Bradenton with J.R. Murphy. He benefited by performing well in front of scouts who came in to see his catcher. Tart is more of a projection pick, sitting 88-90 mph with his fastball and showing the hand speed to spin a curve. He's still catching up to his 6-foot-4 frame, and most scouts consider him a better bet after three college seasons.
28 1009 Tampa Bay Rays Ryan McCarney RHP Cal State Northridge Calif.
29 1010 Chicago Cubs John Lambert LHP North Carolina State N.C.
Lefty John Lambert had a big game against North Carolina with plenty of scouts in attendance, striking out 10 but walking nine. He also showed an average fastball and slider and power pitcher's approach to go with his 6-foot-7 frame. His delivery tends to get mechanical, making it tough for him to repeat his delivery.
30 1011 Los Angeles Angels Owen Dew RHP Seminole (Fla.) CC Fla.
