1 18 Los Angeles Angels Kaleb Cowart Cook HS, Adel, Ga. Ga. $2,300,000
Cowart was in the running to be the High School Player of the Year as a dominant two-way player, evoking comparisons to past Georgia preps Buster Posey and Ethan Martin. Those two examples set up two different paths for Cowart, who like Posey is a Florida State signee. Posey was more of a third-round talent out of high school and a different type of pitcher than Cowart, who on the mound is all about power. He has arm strength and good sinking life on his plus fastball, which sits in the 91-93 mph range at its best. He also has a hard slider and scouts don't seem to mind his split-finger fastball, either. Scouts prefer Cowart as a pitching prospect with a 6-foot-3, 190-pound pitcher's body. Like Posey, Cowart prefers to hit; he's a switch-hitting third baseman, and while some scouts consider his defense fringy at the hot corner, he has strength in his swing and some raw power. Scouts hope Cowart is more like Martin, a prep third baseman-turned-pitcher who signed with the Dodgers as a first-rounder after realizing he was a better prospect on the bump. But Cowart's signability was in doubt early, as he was asking for close to $3 million in order to spurn Florida State.
1 25 St. Louis Cardinals Zack Cox Arkansas Ark. $2,000,000
Cox is the best pure hitter and top sophomore-eligible player in the draft. He hit just .266 as a freshman on Arkansas' College World Series team a year ago, but improved as the season went on and adjusted his pull-happy approach when he arrived in the Cape Cod League. He hit .344 with wood bats and ranked as the top position prospect in the summer circuit, setting the stage for a breakout spring in which he was hitting .432/.514/.606 entering regional play. Cox has very good hands, a short, lefty stroke and nice command of the strike zone. He has an uncanny ability to hit the ball with authority to the opposite field. There's some debate as to how much power he'll have in the major leagues, but he has the bat speed to do damage once he adds more loft to his swing. He has plenty of strength, as evidenced by a titanic shot he blasted off the top of a 90-foot-tall scoreboard at the 2009 Southeastern Conference tournament. Six feet and 215 pounds, Cox is a decent athlete with fringy speed and range at third base. Not all scouts are sold on his defensive ability. He does have a strong arm--he threw in the low 90s as a reliever a year ago--and will put in the work to improve his reactions at third base. He also has seen time at second base, and one scout said his actions looked better there, but his athleticism is more suited for the hot corner. Cox turned down an $800,000 offer as a Dodgers 20th-round pick out of high school, and he's in line to make two or three times as much as a top 10 choice this June. A pulled back muscle that kept him out of the Southeastern Conference wasn't expected to affect his draft stock.
1s 33 Houston Astros Mike Kvasnicka Minnesota Minn. $936,000
After catching sparingly in his first two seasons at Minnesota, Kvasnicka has seen semi-regular action behind the plate this spring while senior Kyle Knudson has recovered from offseason labrum surgery on both hips. Kvasnicka already was an attractive draft prospect as a 6-foot-2, 210-pound switch-hitter with a balanced stroke, good power potential and strike-zone discipline. Now his stock has jumped with the possibility that he could be a catcher rather than a right fielder. He has solid arm strength and accuracy, and he has the athleticism, hands and work ethic to become an average receiver. While he might have been a fourth-round pick as an outfielder, he now figures to go in the first two rounds as a catcher. If he winds up moving back to the outfield, he still has enough bat to reach the big leagues. Kvasnicka's father Jay was a Twins eighth-round pick in 1988--Minnesota drafted Mike in the 31st round out of high school--and reached Triple-A.
1s 44 Detroit Tigers Nick Castellanos Archbishop McCarthy HS, Southwest Ranches, Fla. Fla. $3,450,000
Castellanos was already a prospect before last year's Under Armour game at Wrigley Field in Chicago. Then he hit four doubles on national television against good competition, and suddenly Castellanos was a "famous guy," a term scouts use for heavily scouted players. He also hit .327 for the 18U USA Baseball team that won a gold medal at the Pan American Junior Championship in Venezuela. He has more than held up under the scrutiny, and in fact has thrived in it, having a stellar senior season. A shortstop in high school, Castellanos projects to move to third as a pro and has the agility and arm strength to play the hot corner. He also should have the bat. He's one of the better hitters in the prep class, thanks to a strong swing featuring good extension and natural loft. He has used the whole field more this year and is a solid athlete with good aptitude. Some scouts question his ability to hit breaking balls, saying they've seen too much swing-and-miss this year to project him as a plus hitter, and have more confidence in his future power. Others debate whether Castellanos has true impact tools or is closer to solid-average. He is an average runner and doesn't have a glaring weakness.
1s 49 Texas Rangers Mike Olt Connecticut Conn. $717,300
Olt followed his older brother Brad to UConn and made an immediate impact as the starting shortstop as a freshman, hitting 13 home runs and setting a school record with 61 RBIs. He ranked as the No. 1 prospect in the New England Collegiate League that summer but was hampered by a sprained ankle in 2009, when he also missed 22 games after being hit on the wrist by a pitch. Olt moved to third base as a sophomore, and his soft hands, smooth actions and strong arm will make him at least a solid-average defender there, and some scouts believe he has Gold Glove potential. He got off to a slow start offensively this spring, struggling against pitches on the outer half and breaking balls, but midway through the season he went to a narrower stance and worked to shorten up his swing. The adjustment paid off, and he was hitting .342/.407/.668 with 16 homers and 59 RBIs. The 6-foot-2, 210-pound Olt has good leverage in his swing and above-average raw power, but his swing has holes and scouts still question his pitch recognition. His work ethic garners rave reviews, giving reason to hope he can become an average major league hitter. He's also a good athlete with fringe-average speed. Olt's stock was on the rise down the stretch, and he could be drafted as high as the second round.
2 60 Oakland Athletics Yordy Cabrera Lakeland (Fla.) HS Fla. $1,250,000
The Yordy Cabrera story has several themes that all scouts are familiar with. He moved to the U.S. at age 14 from the Dominican Republic and is already 19. In other words, he's a prep senior who's two years older than junior-college freshman Bryce Harper. Cabrera, whose father Basilio is a former player and the Tigers' Rookie-level Gulf Coast League manager, has spent plenty of time around pro clubhouses and wood bats, and has two plus-plus tools. He has excellent raw power and one of the draft's strongest arms for an infielder, and he has the hands, average speed and actions to at least begin his pro career as a shortstop. Most believe he'll have to move to third base eventually because he's already 6-foot-3, 200 pounds, but should be able to stay in the dirt. As a pitcher, he has launched his fastball into the low to mid-90s, and his arm profiles for third or right field if he has to move. His value will depend on his bat, which remains raw and inconsistent despite his bloodlines. Cabrera kills mistakes, especially hanging breaking balls, but at times has trouble gearing up to velocity. He was unlikely to last past the supplemental round, and if his bat doesn't develop he could move to the mound.
2 69 Toronto Blue Jays Kellen Sweeney Jefferson HS, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Iowa $600,000
Sweeney's older brother Ryan was a White Sox second-round pick in 2003 and now starts in right field for the Athletics. Ryan was the better athlete—he could have been drafted just as high as a pitcher—but Kellen is a better hitter at the same stage of their careers. The 6-foot-1, 180-pounder has a quick lefthanded bat, a fluid stroke and good pull power. He struggled on the showcase circuit last summer, but scouts don't hold that against him because he hurt his elbow pitching in the final game of his junior season and required Tommy John surgery in August. Though he's a slightly above-average runner, Sweeney doesn't cover enough ground to stick at shortstop in pro ball. Assuming he regains his previous arm strength, he could make a good third baseman, and it's possible he could handle second base. Sweeney will go a few rounds later than his brother did, but that should be high enough to divert him from attending San Diego.
2 79 Tampa Bay Rays Derek Dietrich Georgia Tech Ga. $457,200
Dietrich is one of three unsigned 2007 Astros draft picks--Arkansas' Brett Eibner and Texas Tech's Chad Bettis are the others--who figure to go in the first two rounds this year. Dietrich was the highest pick, a third-rounder, and could still fall to that round despite having his best college season. He's a difficult player for scouts to judge because he doesn't fit an obvious pro profile. His lefthanded bat brings value, as do his strong arm and developing power, and he tied his career high with 14 homers this spring. He plays hard and has been a serviceable college shortstop defensively. Scouts believe he lacks the footwork or athletic ability in his 6-foot-1, 196-pound frame to stay at short, though, and wonder if his footwork can improve enough for him to play at second. Most doubt that and believe third base is his best fit with the glove, and he may not produce enough power to profile as a regular there. He also could prove to be a versatile big leaguer in the mold of Geoff Blum or Scott Spiezio, who both had the advantage of switch-hitting.
3 93 Toronto Blue Jays Chris Hawkins North Gwinnett HS, Suwanee, Ga. Ga. $350,000
Hawkins is a high school shortstop who is projected to play third base if he winds up at Tennessee. Most scouts don't necessarily see him staying in the dirt as a pro, but they do see tools that stand out even among Georgia's deep, talented class of high school athletes. Most project him as a center fielder thanks to his above-average speed. That has some scouts dreaming of Hawkins, a lefthanded hitter, as a poor man's Colby Rasmus, but he isn't as easy or fluid as Rasmus was at the same stage. Hawkns also has arm strength, and if his 6-foot-3, 210-pound frame proves too big for him to stay in center, he is athletic enough to handle a corner. Hawkins doesn't have Rasmus' all-around hitting ability, but he has a track record of success and has shown the ability to catch up to good fastballs this spring. He has performed well in front of crosscheckers all spring, leading North Gwinnett to a playoff berth while surpassing double digits in home runs. He carried a 29-game hitting streak into the state 5-A playoff semifinals, having set school records with 14 homers, 19 doubles and 58 hits. The strong finish was pushing Hawkins up draft boards, and he was considered a potential second- or third-round selection.
3 101 Atlanta Braves Joe Leonard Pittsburgh Pa. $324,900
Leonard's father, John, was a first-round pick of the Orioles in 1982, and Joe stepped into Pitt's starting lineup as a freshman. After two solid seasons, Leonard exploded as a junior this spring, hitting .452/.507/.719 with eight homers and 60 RBIs though 199 at-bats. The 6-foot-5, 220-pound Leonard has below-average game power currently, but he has shown good pop with wood bats in batting practice and projects for average power if he can add loft to his flat swing. His swing is long, making him vulnerable against good fastballs on the inner half, but he has good bat speed and feel for hitting, so he barrels up balls consistently. He projects as an average hitter. Leonard also reaches 92-93 mph off the mound as Pitt's closer, and his arm is above-average at third base. He is not a finished product defensively but has good feet and solid instincts, and he projects as a solid-average defender. He is a below-average runner but not a clogger. Leonard projects as a second- to third-round pick.
3 112 New York Yankees Rob Segedin Tulane La. $377,500
Segedin injured his lower back in the Cape Cod League in the summer of 2008, and continued back problems and a shoulder injury led Tulane to shut him down after five games last spring. He was healthy again by the summer, when he helped Bourne win its first-ever Cape championship, and has wielded one of the most potent bats in college baseball this year, hitting .434/.516/.788. Segedin has plenty of strength in his 6-foot-3, 220-pound frame, and he makes consistent, hard contact. His righthanded stroke is geared more toward line drives than loft, but he does show the ability to lift mistakes out of the park. He's not nimble on the bases or at third base, but he manages to get the job done defensively. He has plenty of arm at the hot corner, and his fastball topped out at 94 mph when the Green Wave used him as a reliever two years ago. Because of his back, he has pitched sparingly since. There aren't many quality bats like Segedin's in this draft, but his leverage as a draft-eligible sophomore at an academically strong program could drive up his price and down his draft position.
4 125 Oakland Athletics Chad Lewis Marina HS, Huntington Beach, Calif. Calif. $300,000
Lewis would never fool panelists in a "What's My Line?" contest. At 6-foot-3, 200 pounds, with California blond hair and a prototypical third baseman's build, Lewis is an obvious athlete, and is the premier hot corner prospect in Southern California in 2010. A fixture on the showcase scene, Lewis' best offseason performance came at a showcase in Jupiter, Fla., last October. On a humid and windy day, he blasted a long, wood-bat home run into an unforgiving crosswind. Pro third basemen must hit, and Lewis shows promise with the bat. He has a fluid swing and exciting bat speed, but still needs to correct some technical issues. Lewis struggles with breaking balls and offspeed pitches and needs to improve his pitch recognition. Defensively, Lewis shows playmaking ability and easy fielding actions. His arm is strong and accurate, though his range is a tad short. Like many young players, Lewis loses his concentration in the field and will make errors he shouldn't. Time and experience should solve that problem. Below-average speed is Lewis' only glaring weakness. He profiles as a textbook third baseman with an above-average glove and arm, and average power and hitting ability.
6 185 Oakland Athletics Tony Thompson Kansas Kan. $125,000
Thompson won the first triple crown in Big 12 Conference history a year ago, batting .389 with 21 homers and 82 RBIs. Hopes for an encore were dashed when he fouled a ball off his left kneecap in a February practice, sidelining him for the first 19 games of the season with a hairline fracture. He was overanxious when he returned, chasing too many pitches, but started to look more like himself toward the end of the season. Huge and strong at 6-foot-4 and 219 pounds, Thompson generates easy power to all fields. His swing can get long at times, but he doesn't strike out excessively like many sluggers do. Thompson's speed and mobility were below-average before he got hurt. While he has the arm strength to play third base, his range and agility are substandard. His regular-season fielding percentage was just .880, a further indication he's destined for first base as a pro. His bat should play well enough there for him to get drafted in the first five rounds.
6 188 Chicago White Sox Rangel Ravelo Hialeah (Fla.) HS Fla. $125,000
Ravelo has good size at 6-foot-2, 190 pounds and a strong body. The Cuban emigre played shortstop in high school but was expected to move to third as a pro, and he has the agility and average power potential to make the move possible. His bat speed is fair but he has a knack for making contact and getting the most out of all his tools, including fringy arm strength and below-average speed. He's a Florida International recruit and played with fellow FIU recruit Manny Machado in summer ball.
6 189 Milwaukee Brewers Cody Hawn Tennessee Tenn. $125,000
Junior first baseman Hawn captured the Volunteers' season in microcosm. A pure hitter who hit .364 with 22 home runs as a sophomore, he got off to a slow start thanks to a sprained left shoulder and never got on a roll like he did in '09. He still wound up hitting .327/.441/.593. His bat will have to carry him, and at 5-foot-11 he doesn't have classic first baseman size.
6 194 Atlanta Braves Joey Terdoslavich Long Beach State Calif. $125,000
Joey Terdoslavich began his college career at Miami, hitting .293 with five homers in 123 at-bats as a freshman. After a successful tour in the Alaska League, he transferred to Long Beach State, forcing him to sit out last season. The nephew of ex-big leaguer Mike Greenwell, Terdoslavich is a big-bodied third baseman at 6-foot-2, 200 pounds. He started slow but rebounded, and he was hitting .323/.378/.484 with seven home runs, impressive numbers for Long Beach's cavernous Blair Field. From both sides of the plate, Terdoslavich employs the modern power hitter's swing. He loads up with a hard uppercut and a high finish, looking to put backspin on the ball and drive it out of the yard. During batting practice, pitches ricocheting off of his bat make a distinct, loud ping. Long Beach State has used him at the hot corner, though his hands and actions are short for him to stay there as a pro. A move to first base is likely. His arm is decent but his speed is below-average.
8 247 Cincinnati Reds David Vidal Miami Dade JC Fla. $100,000
Miami-Dade's best hitter has none of Blash's physical gifts, but 5-foot-10, 180-pound first baseman David Vidal was one of the state's best juco hitters. He'll have to play second base either in college or as a pro and is a below-average runner, making him a better college prospect at first blush. His offense--he hit .401 with 14 homers--was so stout this spring that he was being walked intentionally with the bases empty.
11 333 Houston Astros Kyle Redinger Cedar Crest HS, Lebanon, Pa. Pa.
Redinger, a Penn State signee, has a lanky 6-foot-3, 190-pound frame with plenty of power potential and athleticism, but scouts agreed that he needs to develop his overall game, which is raw. He could also help the Nittany Lions on the mound.
12 360 Cleveland Indians Tyler Cannon Virginia Va.
Cannon was Virginia's top hitting prospect last year, but he didn't sign as a 41st-round pick of the Pirates and returned to finish his degree. He can hit line drives with gap power from both sides of the plate, though he's in just his second year of switch-hitting. He was batting .340/.420/.505 this spring with 17 doubles and 35 RBIs. He's a good defensive shortstop for college, but he can't play there every day at the next level. Scouts see him as a useful utilityman who can play all four infield positions, and he has enough arm strength that he could get a look behind the plate. Cannon will go out much higher this year as a senior sign.
12 372 Seattle Mariners Stefen Romero Oregon State Ore. $100,000
Oregon State's best position player is third baseman Stephen Romero, and he could be the first Northwest college position player off the board. Romero doesn't have the athleticism to stay at third base, but he does have power and a good eye at the plate and was batting .326/.427/.603 this year with 13 home runs. Romero should be selected between the seventh and 10th round.
12 382 Los Angeles Dodgers Matt Kirkland South Doyle HS, Knoxville Tenn.
Kirkland has shown raw power potential since his freshman season, when he was in the lineup with Tennessee's current first baseman, Cody Hawn. He has the tools for third, with arm strength and has the present strength in his 6-foot-1, 210-pound frame to contribute as a freshman if he makes it to Knoxville as part of Tennessee's recruiting class. Some pro scouts would like to see him behind the plate.
13 392 New York Mets Brian Harrison Furman S.C. $125,000
Furman third baseman Brian Harrison was the state's wild card. A knee injury sidelined him for nearly two months, but the athletic junior returned to power the Paladins into the eighth and final spot in the Southern Conference tournament. He went 15-for-24 with four home runs in Furman's last six conference games, and had 10 homers in 109 at-bats overall during a .367/.462/.734 season. Drafted out of high school (29th round, Pirates), he should go in the first 10 rounds given a clean bill of health. Harrison has solid athletic ability and solid-average all-around tools, including an above-average arm.
13 411 Philadelphia Phillies John Hinson Clemson S.C.
Tigers third baseman John Hinson had to take a medical redshirt in 2009 thanks to a back injury, and as an eligible sophomore he'll have a bit of leverage. He was healthy and showed his athleticism this season, hitting 12 homers and leading Clemson with 22 steals. He's athletic and repeats his swing, and his power is mostly to the gaps. Defense was a problem for Hinson throughout his career, though he has improved at third. He may profile better as a utility player.
13 412 Los Angeles Dodgers Jesse Bosnik St. Bonaventure N.Y.
Bosnick hit .387/.445/.696 with 11 homers, 20 doubles and 62 RBIs as a junior this spring, leading his team in each category. At 6-foot-2, 205 pounds, Bosnik has strength in his lefthanded swing, but it also gets long and his approach is pull-oriented. He projects as more of a doubles hitter at the next level. Bosnik committed 20 errors this spring and will not stick at shortstop in pro ball, though he has fringe-average arm and could find a home at third base. He's an average athlete with average speed.
14 418 Baltimore Orioles Michael Mosby Wabash Valley (Ill.) CC Ill.
14 429 Milwaukee Brewers Mike Walker Pacific Calif.
Finding a talented senior with tools that profile well in the pro game is a valuable thing to a scout. Pacific third baseman Walker fits that description, as an athletic 6-foot-4, 215-pounder who can play the infield corners and possibly catch in pro ball. He has strength, fringe-average power, runs well and gets on base.
15 455 Oakland Athletics Scott Woodward Coastal Carolina S.C.
Legally deaf, Woodward has excellent speed and patience at the plate but hasn't hit with the power he showed as a freshman. That limits his profile because he lacks the power for third base and the footwork for the middle infield. He's likely destined for the outfield.
15 471 Philadelphia Phillies Jake Smith Alabama Ala.
Smith, a good defender with excellent power, has a swing too long for college ball, not to mention wood bats. He also has worked as a closer occasionally and runs his fastball up to 92 mph, with a decent breaking ball. If he wants to pitch, he'll get a chance in pro ball.
16 500 Colorado Rockies Jayson Langfels Eastern Kentucky Ky.
16 504 Los Angeles Angels Thomas Nichols Georgia Tech Ga.
Nichols has moved around defensively (and even tried catching) without finding a home and probably will wind up in the outfield, though he could also become a utility player. He has plus arm strength and good bat speed. His best tool is his bat, as he's patient, has a feel for the barrel and surprising power. He led the Yellow Jackets in batting at .375/.509/.637. Burnette is more athletic, with average tools across the board and an arm that could grade as above-average. He was batting .350/.398/.664 but is viewed as too aggressive for his own good offensively and profiles as a fourth outfielder, complete with the lefthanded bat.
17 513 Houston Astros Tyler Burnett Middle Tennessee State Tenn.
18 546 Toronto Blue Jays Kris Bryant Bonanza HS, Las Vegas Nev.
Bryant entered the summer with lofty expectations, but he often looked overmatched at the plate during the showcase circuit last summer. When he's on, he's a treat to watch. He has a lean, 6-foot-5, 195-pound frame and light-tower power that draws comparisons to a young Troy Glaus. The power, however, mostly shows up during batting practice or when he has a metal bat in his hands. There are a lot of moving parts to his swing and he has trouble barreling balls up with wood, so how much usable power he ends up having is a big question. He has a long, loopy swing and he never changes his approach when he's struggling. He's athletic for a big guy and may be able to handle third base. He has the arm for it, and some scouts said they wouldn't be shocked if he eventually ended up on the mound. Some scouts love Bryant's power enough to take him in the back half of the first round, while others turned him in as a token gesture and have little interest in him--especially for the price it will take to lure him away from his San Diego commitment.
18 556 Texas Rangers Garrett Buechele Oklahoma Okla.
Garrett Buechele originally planned to attend Kansas, but balked when the Jayhawks wanted to make him a catcher. He transferred to Oklahoma and sat out 2008 in accordance with transfer rules. He led the Big 12 Conference in hitting with a .396 average in 2009, then batted .393 entering NCAA regional play this spring. The 6-foot, 197-pounder has a feel for hitting and decent righthanded power potential. A third baseman like his father Steve, who played 11 seasons in the majors, Buechele has good hands and instincts and enough arm at the hot corner. His lack of athleticism and speed, as well as his extra leverage as a redshirt sophomore, may drive him down in the draft.
19 592 Los Angeles Dodgers Ben Carhart Palm Beach (Fla.) CC Fla.
23 714 Los Angeles Angels Michael Bolaski Hanks HS, El Paso Texas
24 721 Arizona Diamondbacks Stephen Cardullo Florida State Fla.
24 729 Milwaukee Brewers Greg Hopkins St. John's N.Y.
24 738 San Francisco Giants Kyle Wilson North Carolina State N.C.
N.C. State's top position player is Wilson, a switch-hitter and plus runner who set the school stolen-base record with 30 in 2009 but didn't hit enough to get drafted. He moved to center field this spring and hit .381 but had just 12 steals thanks to a hip injury. Initially diagnosed as a groin pull, it turned out to be a stress reaction in his pelvis. He won't need surgery, but he will need rest and may not be able to do more than DH after signing. He hadn't played in the field since April.
25 755 Oakland Athletics Josh Whitaker Kennesaw State Ga.
25 774 Los Angeles Angels A.J. Schugel Central Arizona JC Ariz.
Schugel is an interesting case. He's an infielder, but profiles better as a pro as a pitcher. He doesn't pitch in college because he just doesn't have the feel for it. He'll throw a good bullpen session, sitting 92-93 mph, but is more of a thrower than a pitcher. His father Jeff is a scout for the Angels, so many scouts believe that's where he'll wind up. If he doesn't sign, he'll transfer to New Mexico.
26 800 Colorado Rockies Jacob Tanis Mercer Ga.
28 844 San Diego Padres Jacoby Almaraz Johnson HS, San Antonio Texas
29 877 Cincinnati Reds Adam Muenster Kansas State Kan.
29 885 Minnesota Twins Brian Burke Lewis-Clark State (Idaho) Idaho
Senior first baseman Burke is regarded as one of the toughest players in the Northwest. Scouts love his makeup and retell the stories of him taking two years off between high school and college to work and help out his family. That makes him older, even for a college prospect, however. The Lancaster, Calif. native played two seasons at Cypress (Calif.) JC and spent last year at Kansas Wesleyan. He can also catch and play third base, so he has a little defensive versatility for a 6-foot-2, 215-pounder. Burke bats and throws righthanded and has some strength, but his swing is also a little stiff.
30 911 Tampa Bay Rays Nick Schwaner New Orleans La.
31 928 Baltimore Orioles Adam Gaylord Stanford Calif.
31 948 San Francisco Giants Kyle Hardy Crowder (Mo.) JC Mo.
32 957 Pittsburgh Pirates Chase Lyles Northwestern State La.
32 981 Philadelphia Phillies Carlos Alonso Delaware Del.
33 1002 Seattle Mariners D.J. Peterson Gilbert (Ariz.) HS Ariz.
Third baseman Peterson has a similar profile, except that he bats righthanded, and he's probably destined for left field or first base. He does have a little pop from an uppercut swing. He is committed to Arizona.
34 1030 Chicago Cubs Dustin Harrington East Carolina N.C.
East Carolina failed to make the NCAA regional field and had a tumultuous season, with shortstop Harrington getting kicked off the team for academic problems in what was shaping up as a stellar season. Harrington, who is a below-average runner and fringy defender at short, will move to second or third base as a professional. His bat made significant progress this season, impressive considering he hit 14 homers as a sophomore. He was more selective and was hitting .443/.474/.679 through 25 games when he was removed from the roster. He was working out individually for scouts.
35 1069 St. Louis Cardinals Drew Benes Arkansas State Ark.
36 1085 Oakland Athletics Bobby Geren San Ramon Valley HS, Danville, Calif. Calif.
38 1164 Los Angeles Angels Jace Brinkerhoff Utah Valley Utah
Third baseman Brinkerhoff is a switch-hitter with defensive ability, a strong arm and a good feel for hitting. He's 5-foot-11 and 200 pounds and has been consistently productive with the bat. Some of his doubles turned into home runs this year and he won Great West Conference player of the year honors after hitting .456/.518/.710.
39 1171 Arizona Diamondbacks Garrett Nash Oregon State Ore.
Second baseman Nash is in the second year of his Mormon mission and is draft-eligible, but it's unlikely a team will take a chance on him without seeing him back on the field.
40 1219 St. Louis Cardinals Phil Cerreto Longwood Va.
41 1236 Toronto Blue Jays Seth Conner Logan-Rogersville HS, Rogersville, Mo. Mo. $100,000
41 1243 Detroit Tigers Matt Perry Holy Cross Mass.
