1 986 Washington Nationals Ryan Sherriff LHP West Los Angeles JC Calif.
2 987 Pittsburgh Pirates Justin Ennis LHP Louisiana State-Shreveport La.
3 988 Baltimore Orioles Steven Mazur RHP Notre Dame Ind.
4 989 Kansas City Royals Cole Lohden RHP Southern Arkansas Ark.
5 990 Cleveland Indians Logan Thompson 2B Palm Beach (Fla.) CC Fla.
6 991 Arizona Diamondbacks Andrew Whittington C Southern Arkansas Ark.
Whittington signed for a $1,000 bonus on June 13, but the Diamondbacks later voided his contract.
7 992 New York Mets Hunter Carnevale RHP Pacific Calif.
8 993 Houston Astros Michael Ness RHP Duke N.C.
9 994 San Diego Padres Daniel Ottone RHP Western Carolina N.C.
10 995 Oakland Athletics Sean Murphy RHP Keystone (Pa.) Pa.
11 996 Toronto Blue Jays Melvin Garcia OF Monroe HS, New York N.Y.
12 997 Cincinnati Reds David Garner RHP Niles (Mich.) HS Mich.
13 998 Chicago White Sox Jamaal Hollis RHP Miami (Ohio) Ohio
14 999 Milwaukee Brewers William Kankel LHP Houston Texas
15 1000 Chicago Cubs Matt Stites RHP Jefferson (Mo.) CC Mo.
Righthander Stites stands just 5-foot-11 and 170 pounds, but he has a big arsenal. Before he tired toward the end of the season, Stites showed an 88-92 mph fastball that touched 94, a slider that served as an out pitch and a solid curveball. He's a quick-twitch athlete rather than a max-effort thrower, and he commands his fastball to both sides of the plate. He may be tough to lure away from a commitment to Missouri for 2010.
16 1001 Tampa Bay Rays Scott Simon RHP Central Valley HS, Spokane, Wash. Wash.
17 1002 Seattle Mariners D.J. Peterson 3B 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.
18 1003 Detroit Tigers Brennan Smith RHP Bowling Green State Ohio
19 1004 Atlanta Braves Albert Minnis LHP Lawrence (Kan.) HS Kan.
20 1005 Minnesota Twins Justin Parker LHP Consumnes River (Calif.) JC Calif.
The Red Sox took lefthander Justin Parker in the 25th round of the 2008 draft out of high school, but he went to Loyola Marymount instead before transferring to Cosumnes River JC. He is 6-foot-4, 235 pounds so scouts kept following him. Parker has been up to 90 mph this spring and went 5-1, 3.32 with 85 strikeouts in 65 innings, but the once-promising curveball he showed in high school has been below-average.
21 1006 Texas Rangers Matt Hill LHP Georgia Perimeter JC Ga.
22 1007 Florida Marlins D'Andre Toney OF Hardaway HS, Columbus, Ga. Ga.
23 1008 San Francisco Giants Jim Birmingham LHP Coastal Carolina S.C.
Birmingham sits 88-91 mph and has deception thanks to a quick arm and 6-foot-5 frame. His lack of command of his secondary pitches (a curve and change) kept the transfer from Pennsylvania from dominating the Big South Conference
24 1009 St. Louis Cardinals Joey Bergman 2B College of Charleston S.C.
College of Charleston should have several players drafted after reliever Heath Hembree, including senior Joey Bergman, who couldn't repeat last year's .452/.551/.778 season. A fringe-average runner who has good instincts on the bases, Bergman should slide to second base as a pro and fits the profile as a No. 2 hitter with contact ability, patience and modest power. He fought back from a hamate injury last summer in the New England Collegiate League and hasn't had the same zing in his swing this spring.
25 1010 Colorado Rockies Jordan Ballard 1B Virginia Military Institute Va.
26 1011 Philadelphia Phillies Bob Stumpo C West Chester (Pa.) Pa.
27 1012 Los Angeles Dodgers Brett Lee LHP Bishop State (Ala.) CC Ala.
28 1013 Boston Red Sox Mark Donham RHP Jupiter (Fla.) Community HS Fla.
29 1014 Los Angeles Angels Eric Cendejas RHP Cal State Stanislaus Calif.
30 1015 New York Yankees Michael Hachadorian RHP San Diego Mesa JC Calif.
