2 70 Minnesota Twins Billy Bullock RHP Fla. $522,000
A 20th-round pick out of high school, Bullock has been a similar pitcher in college to what he was as a prep. For most of his career, he didn't maximize the leverage his 6-foot-6 frame provides, and his velocity was inconsistent, whether he was starting (as he did once this spring, at Arkansas) or in a relief role. However, Bullock has taken off in a relief role and become the top draft-eligible bullpen arm in the Southeastern Conference. Bullock was at his best when Florida swept Georgia in Athens, hitting 97 mph several times with his fastball. He also held his velocity in pitching in all three games of that series. While scouts have considered him a tease due to his inconsistency, Bullock has pitched more consistently as a closer. His breaking ball has evolved from a curveball to a slider, and at times it reaches 83 mph with tilt. Bullock still tends to leave his fastball up at times, leading to five home runs allowed in 40 innings, and could pitch downhill more frequently with refinements to his delivery. Despite lashing ability for a changeup in the past, Bullock seems to have taken to the closer role, emphasizing power over touch.
11 331 Colorado Rockies Avery Barnes OF Fla.
12 372 Minnesota Twins Tony Davis LHP Fla.
16 475 Pittsburgh Pirates Matt den Dekker OF Fla.
Den Dekker was recruited as a pitcher and hitter at Florida--in fact, Florida's official website still lists him as a pitcher--and he has a strong throwing arm that helps make him one of college baseball's better defenders in center field. He has easy plus range, tracks balls well and plays hard. A preseason second-team All-American, den Dekker played for USA Baseball's college national team last summer, hitting just .229 with one homer, and his offensive production has faltered this spring as well, making his draft position murky. Scouts still like his swing and struggle to explain his difficult season, as he was hitting .305 and slugging just .435 through 49 games. Den Dekker has solid raw power and the bat speed and strength to drive the ball consistently but still seems to fight his swing, which lacks fluidity. He's a plus runner and excellent basestealer, converting 34 of his last 35 attempts. Teams that believe in the bat could take den Dekker off the board by the sandwich round.
20 602 Kansas City Royals Patrick Keating RHP Fla.
22 672 Minnesota Twins Buddy Munroe C Fla.
22 681 Los Angeles Angels Stephen Locke LHP Fla.
23 686 Baltimore Orioles Mike Mooney SS Fla.
Middle infielder Mike Mooney has little power and is an average runner and defender. He profiles as a second baseman and likely fits better as a senior sign.
25 754 Texas Rangers Riley Cooper OF Fla. $250,000
Florida's most complicated case is outfielder Riley Cooper, a premium athlete with tremendous speed who doubles as a wide receiver on the football team. He made little contact this spring with the bat, striking out 41 times in 89 at-bats. Cooper plans to play for Cotuit in the Cape Cod League this summer, rather than attend summer school like most football players do, so he's likely to be a summer follow.
50 1513 Chicago White Sox Kevin Chapman LHP Fla.
