1 1222 Washington Nationals Dane Opel OF Edwardsville (Ill.) HS Ill.
Scouts say outfielder Dane Opel is the best all-around position player in the state, though it's unlikely he'll be signed away from a commitment to Missouri. The 6-foot-3, 193-pounder has the potential to hit for average and power from the left side. He's also a good athlete who's capable of playing anywhere in the outfield and has been clocked at 90 mph on the mound.
2 1223 Seattle Mariners Kyle Witten RHP Cal State Fullerton Calif.
Witten opened the season in the rotation but quickly lost his sport, winding up 4-3, 6.14 entering regionals. Drafted twice previously, Witten can touch the low 90s with his fastball, but he struggles with control of his four-seamer and secondary pitches, which include a split-finger pitch.
3 1224 San Diego Padres Dane Hamilton 2B New Mexico N.M.
Third baseman Dane Hamilton is a senior who has shown an ability to hit and could be a late pick.
4 1225 Pittsburgh Pirates Tyler Cannon SS Virginia Va.
Shortstop Tyler Cannon is the best draft-eligible hitter for the Cavaliers, though pro scouts like him better as a catcher or third baseman. He's a switch-hitter who was batting .349/.442/.493 going into super regionals, but scouts aren't convinced he'll hit in pro ball. If he could stick behind the plate his offense becomes less of a concern. He also has the versatility to make him a useful utilityman, and he could be helped by the lack of college hitters in this draft.
5 1226 Baltimore Orioles Mason Magleby RHP Del Oro HS, Loomis, Calif. Calif.
6 1227 San Francisco Giants Gary Moran RHP Sonoma State (Calif.) Calif.
7 1228 Atlanta Braves Kyle Petter LHP El Camino (Calif.) JC Calif.
Drafted by Kansas City in 2008, lefthander Kyle Petter is a 5-foot-9, 180-pounder with a 86-89 mph fastball and mid-70s curve. He's a two-way player, leading El Camino JC in home runs this spring with 10. An aggressive pitcher who works quickly, he struggles with his command and will run up high pitch counts.
8 1229 Cincinnati Reds Jake Wiley RHP Marist N.Y.
9 1230 Detroit Tigers Larry Balkwill C Ursuline College Chatham SS, Chatham-Kent, Ont. Ontario
10 1231 Colorado Rockies Matt Sanders 3B Clemson S.C.
11 1232 Kansas City Royals Joey Lewis C Georgia Ga.
Backup catcher and DH Joey Lewis hit 19 home runs and would be a nice sleeper pick if not for a below-average arm, slow transfer and a somewhat ugly swing. He collapses his back side to produce power, causing lots of swing and miss (67 strikeouts in 238 at-bats) but also above-average raw power.
12 1233 Oakland Athletics Justin Hilt OF Elon N.C.
Justin Hilt has average speed, a plus arm and solid power. He also struck out 74 times in just 228 at-bats.
13 1234 Texas Rangers Forrest Garrett LHP Norcross (Ga.) HS Ga.
14 1235 Cleveland Indians Max Muncy C Keller (Texas) HS Texas
Max Muncy and Dane Phillips are gifted hitters who would be more attractive to pro clubs if scouts believed they could catch. Muncy, who's 6 feet and 185 pounds, has a lefty line-drive stroke and arguably the best bat among Dallas-area high schoolers. He didn't look good behind the plate in a trial with his summer team, so it would take a lot of projection to believe in him as a catcher. An infielder in high school, he has some arm strength and will play second base, third base or the outfield if he attends Baylor.
15 1236 Arizona Diamondbacks Cade Kreuter 3B Hart HS, Newhall, Calif. Calif.
16 1237 Los Angeles Dodgers Chris Handke RHP Cornell N.Y.
17 1238 Florida Marlins Darnell Sweeney SS American Heritage HS, Plantation, Fla. Fla.
18 1239 St. Louis Cardinals Cale Johnson RHP McKendree (Ill.) Ill.
19 1240 Toronto Blue Jays Zach Kirksey OF Louisiana State-Eunice JC La.
20 1241 Houston Astros Carlos Escobar C Chatsworth (Calif.) HS Calif.
21 1242 Minnesota Twins Pat Butler RHP Chatham (N.J.) HS N.J.
22 1243 Chicago White Sox Ryan Lee OF Cal Poly Calif.
23 1244 New York Mets Travis Ozga 1B Florida Atlantic Fla.
24 1245 New York Yankees Mariel Checo RHP Thomas HS, New York N.Y.
25 1246 Milwaukee Brewers Steven Sultzbaugh OF Rice Texas
26 1247 Philadelphia Phillies Jeff Gelalich OF Bonita HS, La Verne, Calif. Calif.
UCLA recruit Jeff Gelalich attracted attention with a strong frame, average-to-plus arm and solid-average speed. The lefthanded-hitting outfielder has yet to show scouts consistent hitting ability.
27 1248 Boston Red Sox Kyle Rutter RHP North Carolina State N.C.
28 1249 Tampa Bay Rays Matt Stabelfeld LHP Lewis-Clark State (Idaho) Idaho
29 1250 Chicago Cubs Jake Schmidt RHP Concordia (Minn.) Minn.
30 1251 Los Angeles Angels Joey Rapp OF Chipola (Fla.) JC Fla.
