1 1342 Washington Nationals Michael Ratterree SS Memorial HS, Houston Texas
Michael Ratteree was his 6-A football district's defensive player of the year as a safety, but he'll focus on baseball if he attends Rice as expected. A 6-foot-1, 190-pound shortstop, he's an athlete with righthanded pop. Holt's possible successor, he faces the same move to second base to play alongside Hague. The outfield is another possibility if Holt doesn't turn pro. Ratteree has solid speed and arm strength. As with most Rice recruits, he'll be a tough sign.
2 1343 Seattle Mariners Kevin Mailloux 2B Canisus N.Y.
3 1344 San Diego Padres Derek Landis RHP Iowa Western CC Iowa
4 1345 Pittsburgh Pirates Kevin Gelinas LHP Central Arizona JC Ariz.
Lefthander Kevin Gelinas passes the eye test on the mound with a 6-foot-5, 230-pound frame. Head coach Jon Wente has been taking it easy with Gelinas because he only threw nine innings last season and came down with the flu for two weeks in early April. Gelinas has a firm fastball at 90-93 mph, and a slider that has shown flashes of being a plus pitch but is inconsistent. He also has a developing changeup and can be overpowering when he's commanding his pitches.
5 1346 Baltimore Orioles David Rivera OF Francisco Oller HS, Catano, P.R. P.R.
6 1347 San Francisco Giants Kyle Kramp RHP Westfield (Ind.) HS Ind.
7 1348 Atlanta Braves Nathan Dorris LHP Marion (Ill.) HS Ill.
8 1349 Cincinnati Reds Brian Adams OF South Forysth HS, Cumming, Ga. Ga.
9 1350 Detroit Tigers Jimmy Brennan OF Suffern (N.Y.) HS N.Y.
10 1351 Colorado Rockies Heath Holliday C Bixby (Okla.) HS Okla.
11 1352 Kansas City Royals Derek Spencer 3B Bowling Green State Ohio
12 1353 Oakland Athletics Anthione Shaw OF St. Augustine's (N.C.) N.C.
13 1354 Texas Rangers Dale Anderson C JC of Southern Idaho Idaho
14 1355 Cleveland Indians James Jones RHP John A. Logan (Ill.) CC Ill.
Logan also has Illinois' second-best juco prospect in James Jones. A 6-foot-3, 210-pound righthander, Jones showed a 91-93 mph fastball and flashed an intriguing slider in fall practice. He wasn't consistent in the spring, however, and was bothered by elbow tenderness. He could be an early-rounder if 2010 if he puts things together after transferring to Lipscomb.
15 1356 Arizona Diamondbacks Beau Amaral OF Huntington Beach (Calif.) HS Calif.
UCLA recruit Amaral, whose father Rich played 10 seasons in the majors, follows in his dad's footsteps as a smart, aggressive baserunner. Amaral lacks power projection and will have to fit in as a top-of-the-order center fielder, and he's unlikely to get bought away from college.
16 1357 Los Angeles Dodgers Stephen Piscotty SS Amador Valley HS, Pleasanton, Calif. Calif.
17 1358 Florida Marlins Zach Hurley OF Ohio State Ohio
18 1359 St. Louis Cardinals Adam Heisler OF South Alabama Ala.
19 1360 Toronto Blue Jays Brandon Kaye RHP Douglas (B.C.) British Columbia
Righthander Brandon Kaye is a raw 6-foot-4 215-pounder in his first full year of pitching. That's surprising, considering his half-brother is Blue Jays righthander Scott Richmond. He threw just 11 innings during his high school career, and as a junior-college freshman last year spent most of his time at first base. So the team that drafts him will be getting a fresh arm. His delivery is a little slow, but he has sound mechanics and pounds the strike zone. His fastball is 88-91 mph with room to grow, and he mixes in a slider that needs work. He still needs to develop a changeup.
20 1361 Houston Astros Adrian Morales 2B Miami Dade JC Fla.
21 1362 Minnesota Twins Eddie Ahorrio RHP Jesus Silverio Delgado HS, Arecibo, P.R. P.R.
Righthander Eddie Ahorrio sat 88-93 mph with his fastball early in the year, which was the best velocity in Puerto Rico. He dropped to 86-88 mph late in the year, though, and was kicked off his high school team. He also throws a good breaking ball, but there isn't much projection in his 5-foot-11, 165-pound frame.
22 1363 Chicago White Sox Harold Baines Jr. OF McDaniel (Md.) Md.
23 1364 New York Mets Jake Johansen RHP Allen (Texas) HS Texas
24 1365 New York Yankees Jeremy Baltz OF Vestal (N.Y.) HS N.Y.
St. John's recruit Jeremy Baltz is a strong student and is considered a tough sign, but he could develop into a good draft prospect with the Red Storm. Baltz's best tool is his above-average raw power from the right side. He's a good athlete who still needs to add strength to tap into his offensive potential. Baltz is a decent runner with a below-average arm who profiles as a left fielder.
25 1366 Milwaukee Brewers Richard Stock C Agoura HS, Agoura Hills, Calif. Calif.
Stock, the younger brother of USC's Robert Stock, has been hobbled by injuries to his wrist, back and ribs. A top 200 prospect when healthy, he figures to follow Robert to USC, where he could develop into one of the nation's finest catchers and a first-round candidate in 2012. He has better size than his older brother at 6-foot-3, 185 pounds, and raw power from the left side to go with above-average arm strength.
26 1367 Philadelphia Phillies Richard Bain OF Trinity Christian Academy, Jacksonville Fla.
27 1368 Boston Red Sox Kyle Arnsberg C Lamar HS, Arlington, Texas Texas
28 1369 Tampa Bay Rays Cole Nelson LHP Des Moines Area CC Iowa
29 1370 Chicago Cubs Addison Dunn RHP Warren (Pa.) Area HS Pa.
30 1371 Los Angeles Angels Phil Bando 2B JC of the Canyons (Calif.) Calif.
