10 306 Arizona Diamondbacks Tyson Van Winkle C Wash. $70,000
The top catcher taken out of the Northwest will likely be Oregon State's Ryan Ortiz, but some scouts see Gonzaga's Tyson Van Winkle as a better value and a better bet to hit as a professional. Van Winkle was drafted as a sophomore last year in the 39th round by the Astros and is a skilled defender. The 6-foot, 185-pounder is athletic, with quick feet. He's a skilled blocker, and his pitchers trust they can bury any pitch and Van Winkle will block it. His arm lagged behind his footwork in the past, but they're more in sync this year and his pop times were in the 1.8- to 1.9-second range. Van Winkle isn't just a catch-and-throw guy. He hit .361/.424/.542 for the Zags this year and has power potential.
17 517 Los Angeles Dodgers Steve Ames RHP Wash.
Junior righthander Steven Ames pitched well for the Bulldogs this year, sitting anywhere from 89-92 mph with his fastball with an aggressive approach.
22 670 Toronto Blue Jays Matt Fields RHP Wash.
Senior righthander Matt Fields is 89-91 and shows good pitchability, though he's already 23.
25 769 Tampa Bay Rays Ryan Wiegand 1B Wash.
More of a doubles machine, senior first baseman Ryan Wiegand is Gonzaga's all-time leader in hits, doubles and RBIs. He carried the team in the West Coast Conference title-clinching game that earned the school its first regional trip since 1981, hitting three home runs and driving in eight. After hitting 11 homers last year, he had just six this year but a nice overall line of .330/.407/.517 thanks to 21 doubles. He's limited to first base and doesn't show much loft for a guy who is 6-foot-4 and 240 pounds.
