1 1162 Washington Nationals Kyle Martin RHP St. Michael's Academy, Austin Texas
2 1163 Seattle Mariners Greg Waddell OF Florida International Fla.
3 1164 San Diego Padres Chris Ahearn SS Catawba (N.C.) N.C.
4 1165 Pittsburgh Pirates Keifer Nuncio RHP Katy (Texas) HS Texas
If righthander Keifer Nuncio were a little bigger and a lot more signable, he could go in the first five rounds. He has an 88-91 mph fastball, a solid curveball and feel for a changeup, and scouts praise his bulldog nature as much as his stuff. He's listed at 6-foot-2 and 195 pounds (which may be generous) and uses a drop-and-drive delivery, so he doesn't get much downward plane on his pitches. Committed to Texas, he may want first-round money to sign.
5 1166 Baltimore Orioles Kevin Alexander RHP Taravella HS, Coral Springs, Fla. Fla.
6 1167 San Francisco Giants Kyle Henson C Mississippi Miss.
7 1168 Atlanta Braves Joey Bourgeois RHP Louisiana State-Eunice JC La.
8 1169 Cincinnati Reds Paul Barton RHP Kwalikum SS, Qualicum Beach, B.C British Columbia
Righthander Paul Barton has a projectable, 6-foot-2, 180-pound frame. His fastball is a little short at 87-88 mph, but his arm works well and he shows the makings of three pitches. He's inconsistent and just needs more repetitions.
9 1170 Detroit Tigers Chad Duling SS Bishop Carroll HS, Wichita Kan.
10 1171 Colorado Rockies Eric Federico RHP Cal State Stanislaus Calif.
11 1172 Kansas City Royals Art Charles 1B Bakersfield (Calif.) JC Calif.
12 1173 Oakland Athletics Ryan Lockwood OF South Florida Fla.
13 1174 Texas Rangers Jabari Henry OF Olympia HS, Orlando Fla.
14 1175 Cleveland Indians Brian Hernandez 3B UC Irvine Calif.
15 1176 Arizona Diamondbacks Ryan Jones OF Wichita State Kan.
Outfielder Ryan Jones has the best tools in the state, with solid speed, arm strength and range. But the 6-foot, 185-pound lefthanded hitter never got his bat going, hitting .277 with seven homers this spring after struggling with wood bats in the Cape Cod League last summer. He has a line-drive approach and uses the whole field, yet he still looks overmatched at times.
16 1177 Los Angeles Dodgers Ryan Hander RHP Lincoln HS, Sioux Falls, S.D. S.D.
