Pick Overall Team Player Position School State Bonus
1 446 Washington Nationals David Freitas C Hawaii Hawaii
Freitas is 6-foot-3 and 225 pounds and came to Hawaii from Consumnes River (Calif.) CC. He might get a shot late in the draft, but teams will likely wait on him as a senior sign.
2 447 Pittsburgh Pirates Drew Maggi SS Arizona State Ariz. $468,000
Sophomore-eligible Maggi is a good little player. He's not flashy but can do a little bit of everything. He's an above-average runner who makes all the plays at shortstop, though he could move to center field as a pro. He gets the bat on the ball and will find the gap enough to hit plenty of doubles. Scouts who like him see him as a top-of-the-order sparkplug with speed and versatility. Scouts who don't say he'll cost too much to buy out of ASU as a draft-eligible sophomore and could wind up as a bench player. He's a hard worker with good makeup, and if he doesn't sign he'll likely play for Team USA this summer.
3 448 Baltimore Orioles Joe Oliveira C Pacific Calif.
4 449 Kansas City Royals Jason Mitchell RHP Texas-Arlington Texas
Mavericks righthander Jason Mitchell turned in one of the more stunning performances of the college season, breaking Clay Hensley's Southland Conference record with 18 strikeouts and pitching 8 2/3 no-hit innings Missouri State on March 4. Mitchell's stuff isn't as overpowering as that outing would suggest, as he thrives by commanding an 87-90 mph fastball that tops out at 92, and mixing it with a fringy array of secondary pitches that includes a cutter, slider, curveball and changeup. His pitching savvy makes him a solid senior sign.
5 450 Cleveland Indians Ben Holmes LHP Clackamas (Ore.) HS Ore.
The best high school player in Oregon is projectable lefthander Wetzler. He's 6-foot-2 and 180 pounds and has touched 90 mph this year, with an average changeup and both a slider and curveball. His talent would merit a selection in the fifth or sixth round, but he's considered a tough sign away from Oregon State and could slide.
6 451 Arizona Diamondbacks Mike Bolsinger RHP Arkansas Ark.
Righthander Mike Bolsinger has served as a swingman this spring, and his pro future is as a reliever, his role on Arkansas' 2009 College World Series team. Coming out of the bullpen, he has an 89-92 mph sinker and a slider. The 6-foot-2, 212-pounder throws strikes, competes well and could make a useful middle reliever in the big leagues. The Athletics drafted him in the 33rd round as a junior last year.
7 452 New York Mets Tillman Pugh OF Sonoma State (Calif.) Calif.
Sonoma State outfielder Pugh transferred from Arizona State but got sidelined by academic issues this spring. He is a plus-plus runner with some power, and he is still unrefined in a way that suggests he still has a significant ceiling left to reach.
8 453 Houston Astros Jamaine Cotton RHP Western Oklahoma State JC Okla.
9 454 San Diego Padres Sean Dwyer 1B Tavares (Fla.) HS Fla.
A Florida Gulf Coast signee, Dwyer started rising up draft boards this year when he just wouldn't stop hitting. The 6-foot, 190-pounder also pitches for his high school team, and probably would have played all over the diamond if he weren't lefthanded. Dwyer is a good athlete for the prep level and plays first base and all three outfield spots. Pro scouts who like him believe he could stick in right, but others doubt his athleticism and arm strength and believe he could wind up in left field, or even first base. His best tool is his bat. Dwyer has present strength, good raw power and a sweet lefthanded swing with balance and some polish to his approach. He struck out just six times all spring and was pitched around frequently. He has also worked out a lot with wood for scouts and has shown the same traits. Dwyer is an average runner with a solid-average arm, and he'll have to maintain those to stick in right, where he'd have more value.
10 455 Oakland Athletics Scott Woodward 3B 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.
11 456 Toronto Blue Jays Zak Adams LHP Flower Mound (Texas) HS Texas $250,000
Lefty Zak Adams is a 6-foot-3, 175-pounder who has an 88-91 mph fastball and a good 12-to-6 curveball. He also has a medical history that includes three surgeries.
12 457 Cincinnati Reds Stephen Hunt LHP South Florida Fla.
13 458 Chicago White Sox Sean O'Connell C Chatsworth (Calif.) HS Calif.
14 459 Milwaukee Brewers Chris Bates LHP Regis HS, New York N.Y.
15 460 Chicago Cubs Elliot Soto SS Creighton Neb.
Elliott Soto is one of the best defensive shortstops in the draft, with plus range, hands and arm strength. He can make any throw from any angle, and he can make the routine plays as well as the spectacular. But scouts don't have much faith in his bat. The 5-foot-9, 155-pound Soto lacks strength and hit .194/.268/.218 with wood bats in the Cape Cod League last summer and .297/.388/.431 with metal this spring. He's an average runner, so almost all of his contributions are going to come on defense.
16 461 Tampa Bay Rays Brandon Henderson LHP Chesnee (S.C.) HS S.C. $125,000
Henderson, a Gardner-Webb recruit, went 14-0 this season and threw two-hitters five days apart to drive Chesnee to its first state title since 1988. He has a three-pitch mix also topped by a breaking ball. He's slender at 6-foot-2, 170 pounds, and his present fastball velocity, in the mid-80s, is probably a bit short at this point for pro ball.
17 462 Seattle Mariners Charles Kaalekahi RHP Campbell HS, Ewa Beach, Hawaii Hawaii $125,000
18 463 Detroit Tigers Collin Kuhn OF Arkansas Ark.
19 464 Atlanta Braves Cory Brownsten C Pittsburgh Pa.
Behind the plate, Smith has an average to plus arm but raw receiving skills, which is why Brownsten handled the lion's share of the catching duties for the Panthers this spring. Brownsten also had a better offensive year, hitting .395/.460/.530, but scouts say he has a metal-bat swing that probably won't play at the higher levels of the minors. He's a good defender, however, who does a nice job blocking balls in the dirt and has a 55 arm on the 20-80 scale.
20 465 Minnesota Twins Thomas Girdwood RHP Elon N.C.
Girdwood stands a good chance of being drafted in the first eight rounds after setting Elon and Southern Conference career saves records. He's a lower-slot righthander who has to stay on top of his slider and fastball to be effective. When he's too close to sidearm, his 91-93 mph heater flattens out and his 81-85 mph slider lacks depth, and he's prone to allowing home runs. When he's right, though, both pitches play as above-average offerings, and his fastball has touched 95. He added a changeup, which has made progress but is still a third offering. Girdwood wasn't throwing as well down the stretch, faltering in the Southern Conference tournament. He has plenty of mound presence and experience pitching in big situations and profiles as a set-up man.
21 466 Texas Rangers Ryan Rodebaugh RHP Kennesaw State Ga.
22 467 Florida Marlins Ryan Fisher OF UC Irvine Calif.
23 468 San Francisco Giants Andrew Barbosa LHP South Florida Fla.
24 469 St. Louis Cardinals Geoff Klein C Santa Clara Calif.
Santa Clara's Klein is a 6-foot-4, 215-pound lefthanded-hitting catcher who has hit for average and shown a knack for driving in runs, while flashing power. His defense needs work but has improved since he stepped into a starter's role after an injury to Tommy Medica last spring.
25 470 Colorado Rockies Will Swanner C La Costa Canyon HS, Carlsbad, Calif. Calif. $490,000
A promising hitter with the potential to hit for average and power, Swanner has significantly improved at the plate in the past year by working with Deron Johnson, son of the National League's 1965 RBI king. He has good bat speed and a good approach to utilizing the entire field, though he has stretches when he flips his head and front side off the ball and collapses his back side. Swanner has great makeup and is mature enough that his coach lets him call his own game behind the plate. An athletic receiver, Swanner is projectable but does not have the classic squat catcher's build at 6-foot-2 and 190 pounds. He's relaxed and comfortable behind the plate, and his flexibility enables him to present a low target. He does an outstanding job of framing pitches. He will need to make some defensive adjustments, however, and his pop times are slowed significantly by his habit of pausing at the top of his delivery and then flipping the ball to second base. He also struggles with catching pitches to his left or right. Committed to Pepperdine along with his brother Michael, who's a righthander, Swanner is considered a tough sign. He offers enough upside behind the plate that a club may take an early gamble on him.
26 471 Philadelphia Phillies Jake Smith 3B 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.
27 472 Los Angeles Dodgers Jake Eliopoulos LHP Chipola (Fla.) JC Fla.
Eliopoulos, a Canadian lefthander who was the Blue Jays' unsigned second-round pick last year, was at Chipola and never meshed with the coaching staff. He also never got going on the mound, walking 21 in 21 innings while posting an 8.44 ERA. He left the team in April and returned to Canada to pitch in an adult semi-pro league over the summer, but he clearly cost himself a shot at second-round money.
28 473 Boston Red Sox Steve Wilkerson SS Pope HS, Marietta, Ga. Ga.
The one weakness in Georgia's prep class was the lack of legitimate middle infielders, as most of the top athletes look more like future outfielders. One who should be able to stay in the infield is Wilkerson, a switch-hitter with good size at 6-foot-2, 190 pounds with plus tools and athleticism. Wilkerson has the arm strength for shortstop if he can harness the accuracy on his throws, and he's an above-average runner, having run sub-6.6-second times in the 60-yard dash at the East Coast Pro showcase last summer. He has potential with the bat as well, though he's a bit raw at the plate. Some scouts see him more as a second baseman at the pro level. It may be difficult to pry him away from his Clemson committment, but the home-state Braves could be the team to do it.
29 474 Los Angeles Angels Carmine Giardina LHP Tampa Fla.
Fellow lefty Carmine Giardina finally should go out to pro ball as a senior, ending a college career that began with him committing to Texas, then going to Central Florida and finally Tampa. As a senior, Giardina showed a better feel for pitching than he had in the past while also retaining his arm strength, reaching 92 mph.
30 475 New York Yankees Chase Whitley RHP Troy Ala.
Whitley, a two-way player and solid hitter, was attracting more late interest thanks in part to a five-inning, nine-strikeout outing against struggling New Orleans that showed he could go through a lineup more than once. Whitley is physical at 6-foot-5, 220 pounds, and has solid-average velocity at 88-92 mph. His changeup is a plus pitch, but his curve is fringy at best and usually below-average. He had performed (7-3, 3.68, 7 SV).
