2 1373 Seattle Mariners Clay Cederquist 1B Fowler HS, Fresno Calif.
3 1374 San Diego Padres Mykal Stokes OF Orange Coast (Calif.) CC Calif.
4 1375 Pittsburgh Pirates Parker Bangs RHP South Carolina S.C.
5 1376 Baltimore Orioles Scott Swinson RHP Maryland Md.
The college crop has some interesting players, though no one with tremendous upside. One scout called Maryland righthander Scott Swinson a poor man's Mike Leake, referring to the smallish Arizona State righthander who led the nation in wins this year and is a possible first-round pick. Swinson, at 6-foot-1, 185 pounds, ranges from 86-91 mph with his fastball and typically sits 88-89, and he has a good changeup. He has plus command, as well as a great feel for pitching and strong competitiveness, helping his stuff play up. He learned a lot from Terrapins pitching coach Jim Farr after transferring from George Washington after his freshman season. He didn't have great numbers for a 27-27 Maryland squad, finishing 4-7, 5.54.
6 1377 San Francisco Giants Juan Martinez SS Oral Roberts Okla.
7 1378 Atlanta Braves Buck Farmer RHP Rockdale County HS, Conyers, Ga. Ga.
8 1379 Cincinnati Reds Tim Dunn RHP Trevecca Nazarene (Tenn.) Tenn.
9 1380 Detroit Tigers Nate Goro 3B Lafayette HS, Wildwood, Mo. Mo.
10 1381 Colorado Rockies Tyler Wallace 3B Eaton (Calif.) HS Calif.
11 1382 Kansas City Royals Hudson Randall RHP Dunwoody (Ga.) HS Ga.
12 1383 Oakland Athletics Joel Eusebio 3B Northeastern Oklahoma A&M JC Okla.
13 1384 Texas Rangers Jerad Grundy LHP Johnsburg (Ill.) HS Ill.
With an 80 percent scholarship from Miami, lefthander Jerad Grundy is unlikely to turn pro out of high school. He gets good run on his 89-92 mph from a low arm slot. The 6-foot, 185-pounder throws with a lot of effort in his delivery, and while he throws strikes he projects as a reliever in the long run. He'll throw four pitches for strikes at times, but none of his secondary offerings is a putaway pitch.
14 1385 Cleveland Indians Scott Sommerfeld OF Parkway South HS, Ballwin, Mo. Mo.
15 1386 Arizona Diamondbacks Matt Ozanne OF Notre Dame Prep, Scottsdale, Ariz. Ariz.
16 1387 Los Angeles Dodgers James Smith 2B Second Baptist HS, Houston Texas
17 1388 Florida Marlins Nick Ammirati C Seton Hall Prep, West Orange, N.J. N.J.
18 1389 St. Louis Cardinals Jim Klocke C Southeast Missouri State Mo.
19 1390 Toronto Blue Jays Carlos Castro 3B Lon Morris (Texas) JC Texas
20 1391 Houston Astros Justin Gonzalez SS Columbus HS, Miami Fla.
21 1392 Minnesota Twins Jake Kretzer OF Benton HS, St. Joseph, Mo. Mo.
22 1393 Chicago White Sox Grant Monroe RHP Northwest Florida State JC Fla.
23 1394 New York Mets Trey Pilkington RHP Oxford (Ala.) HS Ala.
24 1395 New York Yankees Tony Plagman 1B Georgia Tech Ga.
Slugging first baseman Tony Plagman has shown plus power with 32 homers the last two seasons, despite becoming steadily more aggressive and less selective. He fits better as a senior sign.
25 1396 Milwaukee Brewers Jordan Wong RHP Vauxhall Academy, Edmonton Alberta
26 1397 Philadelphia Phillies Jeff Ames RHP Skyview HS, Vancouver, Wash. Wash.
Righthander Jeff Ames entered the season with high expectations but hasn't improved much during his high school career and has battled injuries. He's expected to honor his commitment to Oregon State.
27 1398 Boston Red Sox John Pivach RHP New Orleans La.
28 1399 Tampa Bay Rays Aaron Oates 3B Skyline HS, Oakland Calif.
29 1400 Chicago Cubs Glenn Cook OF Miami Fla.
30 1401 Los Angeles Angels Jonathan Paquet RHP Cardinal Roy SS, Ancienne-Lorette, Quebec Quebec
Righthander Jonathan Paquet stands 6-foot-4 and 185 pounds. He has an effortless delivery and pitches at 87-88 mph presently, but should add velocity as he fills out.
