1 1132 Washington Nationals Chris Manno LHP Duke N.C.
Junior lefthander Christopher Manno is the Blue Devils' best prospect and could go anywhere from the fifth to 10th round. Like Wolcott, he works primarily off his fastball. He's long and lean with deception and some projection left in his body. Manno at times sits at 83-87 mph, though he often throws harder and was 89-91 mph at times in the Cape last summer, when he went 3-0, 1.93 with 45 strikeouts in 42 innings. His changeup can be plus at times, while his slider is below-average. Manno is young for his draft class and doesn't turn 21 until November.
2 1133 Seattle Mariners Matt Nohelty OF Minnesota Minn.
3 1134 San Diego Padres Kyle Loretelli OF Cal State Stanislaus Calif.
4 1135 Pittsburgh Pirates Jake Lamb 3B Bishop Blancet HS, Seattle Wash.
Seattle's Jake Lamb has played shortstop this year for Bishop Blanchet, a private powerhouse that also includes one of Washington's top 2010 players, outfielder Josh Sale. Lamb profiles as a third baseman, though some would like to try him out behind the plate because of his arm strength. He hit well this year and has a chance to hit as a pro, but because he's grown up in the shadow of UW he's expected to end up at Washington.
5 1136 Baltimore Orioles Josh Dowdy RHP Appalachian State N.C.
6 1137 San Francisco Giants A.J. Proszek RHP Gonzaga Wash.
7 1138 Atlanta Braves Tripp Faulk OF North Myrtle Beach HS, Little River, S.C. S.C.
8 1139 Cincinnati Reds Tommy Nurre 1B Miami (Ohio) Ohio
9 1140 Detroit Tigers Tarran Senay OF South Park (Pa.) HS Pa.
It is unlikely any significant high school players will sign pro contracts this year, though a few have long-term upside worth mentioning. Tarran Senay is a gifted two-sport athlete who broke his wrist in his first football game last spring--yet played all fall before finding out it was broken. The injury hampered his production this spring, and he has not shown the plus lefthanded power potential he flashed last summer. He has played third base but profiles better as a first baseman or left fielder, as his arm is fringy and his speed is below-average. Senay has good makeup and plenty of potential, but power is his best tool and he hasn't shown it this spring, so he figures to wind up at North Carolina State.
10 1141 Colorado Rockies Brett Hambright C Riverside (Calif.) CC Calif.
11 1142 Kansas City Royals Arthur Owens SS Sandy Creek HS, Tyrone, Ga. Ga.
12 1143 Oakland Athletics Tristan Archer RHP Sullivan South HS, Kingsport, Tenn. Tenn.
13 1144 Texas Rangers Anthony Hutting OF Tesoro HS, Rancho San Margarita, Calif. Calif.
14 1145 Cleveland Indians Robert Sabo RHP Kent State Ohio
15 1146 Arizona Diamondbacks Trevon Prince LHP Oakland, Calif. Calif.
16 1147 Los Angeles Dodgers Kirby Pellant 2B Corona Del Sol HS, Tempe, Ariz. Ariz.
17 1148 Florida Marlins Kevin Johnson LHP Cincinnati Ohio
18 1149 St. Louis Cardinals John Durham LHP Warner (Fla.) Fla.
19 1150 Toronto Blue Jays Yudelmis Hernandez 1B Barry (Fla.) Fla.
20 1151 Houston Astros Sean Barksdale OF Temple Pa.
21 1152 Minnesota Twins Peter Kennelly RHP Fordham N.Y.
22 1153 Chicago White Sox A.J. Casario OF Maryland Md.
A.J. Casario batted .319/.409/.522 with 10 home runs and 12 stolen bases as Maryland's right fielder, and he has intriguing tools. He's a lefthanded hitter with an athletic frame. He's an average to slightly above-average runner, with an average arm. He is capable of playing all three outfield spots but profiles best in center. The bat is his big question. He flashes raw power and could hit for average if he cleans things up. He has a violent swing and doesn't have great pitch recognition, so he swings and misses a lot. The Dodgers drafted him in the 27th round in 2006 out of high school in New Jersey, where he was an all-state player who batted .561 with 10 home runs as a senior.
23 1154 New York Mets Will Cherry OF Florida Southern Fla.
24 1155 New York Yankees Adam Bailey OF Nebraska Neb.
Adam Bailey was a pitcher on Arizona State's 2007 College World Series team before transferring to South Mountain (Ariz.) CC and then Nebraska. The 6-foot, 189-pounder is now a starting outfielder who led the Cornhuskers with 12 homers. He has good bat speed and would offer even more lefthanded power if he turned on more pitches. Despite his arm strength, he'll fit best in left field as a pro.
25 1156 Milwaukee Brewers Casey Stevenson 2B UC Irvine Calif.
26 1157 Philadelphia Phillies Cory Wine 1B Penn State Pa.
27 1158 Boston Red Sox Zeke DeVoss OF Astronaut HS, Titusville, Fla. Fla.
28 1159 Tampa Bay Rays Drew Hillman 3B Orange Coast (Calif.) CC Calif.
29 1160 Chicago Cubs Bobby Wagner 3B Panola (Texas) JC Texas
30 1161 Los Angeles Angels Justin Bellez RHP Mira Mesa (Calif.) HS Calif.
