Round Overall Team Player Position State Bonus
5 144 San Diego Padres Jason Hagerty C Fla. $177,300
First baseman/catcher Jason Hagerty also could go in the first 10 rounds thanks to his average to plus power and ability to catch as well as play first base; he draws some comparisons to Greg Colbrunn.
5 159 St. Louis Cardinals Ryan Jackson SS Fla. $157,500
Jackson developed into one of the draft's bigger enigmas as the year progressed. As a sophomore, he was a premium defender and .360 hitter toward the bottom of a loaded Miami lineup. He helped the Hurricanes reach the College World Series, then joined USA Baseball's college national team for the summer. Scouts have questioned Jackson's bat since he was in high school; he wasn't drafted as a prep and scouts have seen his bat go backward this spring. Jackson was dropped from high in the Miami order to the bottom before moving back up as the draft approached. He's a below-average runner with below-average raw power, and virtually all his value is in his glove. Despite his lack of speed, Jackson plays shortstop with grace, showing good hands, a strong arm, outstanding instincts and smooth actions. Jackson's glove is good enough to make him a regular if he can hit .250 with wood, but he was barely hitting .250 with metal, making it difficult to peg his draft position.
5 163 Chicago White Sox Kyle Bellamy RHP Fla. $147,500
Bellamy was a first-team all-conference choice in the Atlantic Coast Conference and was a key reason that Miami--unranked in the preseason--overachieved and finished in the ACC's top five teams. The Hurricanes have a long history of tremendous relievers, dating back to the Ron Fraser era (Rick Raether was the MOP of the 1985 College World Series) and enhanced during Jim Morris' Miami tenure, from Danny Graves and Jay Tessmer to George Huguet and 2008 first-rounder Carlos Gutierrez. Bellamy could work out better than Tessmer and Huguet thanks to a heavy, sinking fastball that is his trademark. When he's fresh, Bellamy works at 88-91 mph; he loses velocity when he works on back-to-back days, sometimes dipping into the 84-87 range. Bellamy's success as a pro will hinge on improved fastball command and improved consistency with his frisbee slider, which lacks depth and power.
6 192 Minnesota Twins Chris Herrmann C Fla. $135,000
Herrmann was a 10th-rounder out of Alvin (Texas) JC last year, when he played some catcher. He didn't catch this year and projects as a corner infielder or left fielder, but defense isn't his best trait. He's a solid hitter with a short swing, patient approach and good strength.
