16 1267 Los Angeles Dodgers Tony Renda SS Serra HS, San Mateo, Calif. Calif.
17 1268 Florida Marlins Jordan Poyer OF Astoria (Ore.) HS Ore.
The Northwest is full of athletic outfielders who also play football. Jake Locker aside, there's Kyrell Hudson in Vancouver, Wash., and then two more in Oregon. Astoria High outfielder Jordan Poyer, like Hudson, plans to play both baseball and football at Oregon State. He was a high school quarterback and is listed at cornerback on the Beavers' football roster. His father played college football, and his mother played college softball. At 6-foot-2 and 180 pounds, he's a little taller than Hudson but isn't wound as tight. Poyer doesn't quite have Hudson's speed, strength or arm, but has more natural actions as a baseball player--he's a little leaner and looser. He has a buggy-whip swing, with some power. If he has good predraft workouts, he could end up as a single-digit pick.
18 1269 St. Louis Cardinals Aaron Terry RHP Southern Arkansas Ark.
19 1270 Toronto Blue Jays Michael Reeves C St. Peter's SS, Peterborough, Ont. Ontario
20 1271 Houston Astros Ivory Thomas OF Downey (Calif.) HS Calif.
Ivory Thomas, is a bit undersized for pro ball at 5-foot-9, 180 pounds. He's a plus runner (6.77 seconds in the 60) and has a decent arm. He also offers provocative raw power and drew notice for getting five hits and scoring the winning run in a 20-inning game in 2008, the longest game in CIF Southern Section playoff history. His strength and energy could make him the top draft pick among this trio.
21 1272 Minnesota Twins Marc Bourgeois OF Chipola (Fla.) JC Fla.
Chipola also has a solid hitting option for scouts in outfielder Marc Bourgeois, who resembles fellow Canadian and Chipola alum Rene Tosoni, now in the Twins system. Bourgeois has a smooth lefthanded swing as pure as Tosoni's, with more raw power. He also has impressive speed and instincts, leading the team with 11 homers and 22 steals in 23 attempts.
22 1273 Chicago White Sox Chris Zagyi RHP Middlesex (N.J.) CC N.J.
23 1274 New York Mets Ryan Gunhouse C Clear Creek HS, League City, Texas Texas
24 1275 New York Yankees Danny Black SS Feather River (Calif.) JC Calif.
25 1276 Milwaukee Brewers Brad Schreiber RHP Kimberly (Wis.) HS Wis.
26 1277 Philadelphia Phillies Matt Laney LHP Miami Dade JC Fla.
27 1278 Boston Red Sox Gera Sanchez RHP New Mexico JC N.M.
28 1279 Tampa Bay Rays Bennett Davis 3B Elon N.C.
Senior infielder Bennett Davis should get drafted based on his feel for hitting. Davis hit 18 homers and showed solid-average defensive tools this spring.
29 1280 Chicago Cubs Trey Ford SS Chaparral HS, Scottsdale, Ariz. Ariz.
Third baseman Trey Ford has a short, line-drive stroke but profiles better at second base. He is committed to Chandler-Gilbert CC.
30 1281 Los Angeles Angels Sam Wolff RHP Stevens HS, Rapid City, S.D. S.D.
Righthander Sam Wolff is the best of the three South Dakota high school pitchers who have scholarships from major college programs. He's not big at 6-foot-1 and 180 pounds, but he's athletic and has a quick arm that generates a lively fastball that sits in the high 80s and tops out at 92. Like most pitching stars in the Dakotas, he works mainly with his fastball and will have to develop his secondary pitches. Wolff played shortstop in high school and showed average speed, some pop in his righthanded bat and never-ending hustle. He's also a track and basketball standout. It's unlikely Wolff can be signed away from a commitment to San Diego.
