3 1494 San Diego Padres Brett Basham C Mississippi Miss.
4 1495 Pittsburgh Pirates Matt Taylor LHP Columbus (Ga.) HS Ga.

5 1496 Baltimore Orioles Tim Berry LHP San Marcos (Calif.) HS Calif. $125,000
6 1497 San Francisco Giants Kaohi Downing RHP Point Loma Nazarene (Calif.) Calif.

8 1499 Cincinnati Reds Chris Page 1B Genesee (N.Y.) CC N.Y.
9 1500 Detroit Tigers Nico Rosthenhausler OF South Mountain (Ariz.) CC Ariz.
Outfielder Nico Rosthenhausler's father Ray was a first-round pick in the secondary phase of three drafts from 1983-84. Nico is a stocky 5-foot-11 and 200 pounds, yet has trimmed down significantly after busting his tail over the summer to lose the 50 pounds he ate on as a freshman. He's a lefthanded hitter who uses the entire field and is committed to Arizona.
10 1501 Colorado Rockies Nathan Hines OF Middle Tennessee State Tenn.
11 1502 Kansas City Royals Anthony Scirrotto SS Penn State Pa.
12 1503 Oakland Athletics Tanner Biagini 3B Virginia Military Institute Va.
13 1504 Texas Rangers Ronnie Melendez OF Cowley County (Kan.) CC Kan.
14 1505 Cleveland Indians Tyler Joyner LHP Northern Nash HS, Rocky Mount, N.C. N.C.
Northern Nash High lost to Eastern Wayne in the East 3-A regionals, led there by lefthander Tyler Joyner, who struck out 16 in a sectional playoff game. Joyner has an 88-90 mph fastball and good size, though he lacks much projection. The East Carolina signee also has shown a fringe-average breaking ball with average future potential.
15 1506 Arizona Diamondbacks Frank Abbl RHP Mesa (Ariz.) CC Ark.
16 1507 Los Angeles Dodgers David Garcia SS Kennedy HS, Granada Hills, Calif. Calif.
17 1508 Florida Marlins Adam Kam 1B Douglas HS, Parkland, Fla. Fla.

22 1513 Chicago White Sox Kevin Chapman LHP Florida Fla.
23 1514 New York Mets Zack Godley RHP Bamberg-Ehrhardt HS, Bamberg, S.C. S.C.
24 1515 New York Yankees Stephen Kaupang 1B Cypress (Calif.) JC Calif.
Stephen Kaupang is limited defensively to first base but has shown power. Tall, strong and rangy, he has excellent raw power and hitting ability, as evidenced by his 11 homers and .428 average. He has shown a tendency to point his front foot and open up his front side too soon, but if scouts think he can correct those problems, he could be a sleeper.
25 1516 Milwaukee Brewers Darren Farmer C West Lauderdale HS, Collinsville, Miss. Miss.
26 1517 Philadelphia Phillies David Hissey OF Emory Ga.
27 1518 Boston Red Sox Drew Hedman 1B Pomona-Pitzer (Calif.) Calif.
28 1519 Tampa Bay Rays David Wendt C Dowling (N.Y.) N.Y.
29 1520 Chicago Cubs Zach Cleveland RHP Central Arizona JC Ariz.
Short righthander Zach Cleveland has a fastball that tops out at 93 mph and sits 90-92, setting up a devastating slider. He had trouble throwing strikes last year for the Vaqueros, but cut down his free passes this season.
30 1521 Los Angeles Angels Alibay Barkley 1B Washington HS, New York N.Y.
