44 1328 Florida Marlins Ken Giles RHP N.M.
New Mexico rarely has high school players selected in the draft. Aside from Walla, there are a few interesting players, but most will likely end up in college. Righthander Kenny Giles is the younger brother of Josh, who played in the Rangers system. Giles showed good velocity this spring, sitting 91-92 mph, and has touched 94 in the past. He throws only a fastball and changeup now and has dealt with tendinitis this spring.
