1 1106 Washington Nationals Nick Serino LHP Massachusetts Mass.
2 1107 Pittsburgh Pirates Will Allen C Buchholz HS, Gainesville, Fla. Fla.
3 1108 Baltimore Orioles Austin Knight 2B Palm Beach (Fla.) CC Fla.
4 1109 Kansas City Royals Robbie Penny RHP Pitt (N.C.) CC N.C.
5 1110 Cleveland Indians Trey Griffin OF King HS, Lithonia, Ga. Ga.
Another outfielder caught in the state's glut of talent was Trey Griffin. Griffin's older brother Xavier Avery was the Orioles' second-round pick in 2008, but Avery is more athletic and bats lefthanded, while Griffin is a righthanded hitter. Griffin has exhibited some of his brother's tools but lacks his speed and will have to move to a corner spot in pro ball. An Oklahoma State signee, Griffin has quick hands and loft power potential, if he can improve his plate discipline and feel for the barrel. He plays with energy but generally didn't fare well in comparison to more toolsy peers in Georgia this spring.
6 1111 Arizona Diamondbacks Michael Weber 2B Washington State Wash.
7 1112 New York Mets Dylan Brown OF Tampa Fla.
Spartans outfielder Brown, an Oklahoma State transfer and the younger brother of Athletics prospect Corey Brown, also will get a look thanks to his raw power. His undisciplined approach hinders him offensively.
8 1113 Houston Astros Brian Streilein RHP Villanova Pa.
9 1114 San Diego Padres Chase Marona RHP Northwest-Shoals (Ala.) CC Ala.
10 1115 Oakland Athletics Daniel Petitti C North Georgia College and State Ga.
11 1116 Toronto Blue Jays Chad Green RHP Effingham (Ill.) HS Ill.
As an athletic 6-foot-4, 185-pound righthander who also starred in basketball, Green is reminiscent of Tanner Bushue, whom the Astros drafted in the second round last year out of a nearby high school. Green isn't as good as Bushue, but he'll show a low-90s fastball in the early innings of games. He lacks arm speed, so his ability to spin a curveball isn't great. He's more about projection than present value, and could blossom into an early-round pick if he attends Louisville.
12 1117 Cincinnati Reds Nick Sawyer RHP Hebron HS, Carrollton, Texas Texas
13 1118 Chicago White Sox Chris Lee LHP Robinson HS, Tampa Fla.
14 1119 Milwaukee Brewers Seth Harvey RHP Washington State Wash.
Righander Seth Harvey is in his fourth year at Wazzu and is still a one-trick pony. It's fastball after fastball after fastball. His fastball sits 90-92 and has above-average life, but that's all he has.
15 1120 Chicago Cubs Chad Noble C Northwestern Ill.
16 1121 Tampa Bay Rays Demondre Arnold RHP Creekside HS, Fairburn, Ga. Ga.
17 1122 Seattle Mariners Ryan Kiel LHP Marshall W.Va.
18 1123 Detroit Tigers Carlos Lopez 1B Cal State Fullerton Calif.
19 1124 Atlanta Braves Kollin Dowdy OF Harrisburg (Ill.) HS Ill.
20 1125 Minnesota Twins Grant Muncrief RHP Wichita State Kan.
21 1126 Texas Rangers John Pustay OF Pine Creek HS, Colorado Springs Colo.
John Pustay is undersized at 5-foot-11 and 175 pounds. The San Diego State recruit has a quick, balanced swing from the left side and shows a little snap in his bat, though he'll never be a big power guy. As a runner, he's average to a tick above and will likely have to move to a corner position, so he doesn't profile well for pro scouts.
22 1127 Florida Marlins Chris Squires RHP Indiana Ind.
23 1128 San Francisco Giants Jake Sisco RHP Davis HS, Modesto, Calif. Calif.
24 1129 St. Louis Cardinals Packy Elkins SS Belmont Tenn.
25 1130 Colorado Rockies Dan Kickham RHP Crowder (Mo.) CC Mo.
26 1131 Philadelphia Phillies Marshall Schuler RHP Colorado School of Mines Colo.
Colorado is never a hot spot for college players, with no Division I programs, but there are a few interesting players this year. Marshall Schuler is a 6-foot, 170-pound senior righthander with a career 9.29 ERA. He was 1-4, 10.01 this year over 48 innings with 49 strikeouts and 27 walks. But, he's been up to 94 mph with some sink, so someone will give him a chance.
27 1132 Los Angeles Dodgers Cal Vogelsang 2B JC of the Canyons (Calif.) Calif.
28 1133 Boston Red Sox Aaron Jones C San Clemente (Calif.) HS Calif.
Catcher Aaron Jones has attracted significant buzz late in this spring season, and some even liked him better than Stefan Sabol. While that may be a stretch, Jones is a powerfully built 6-foot-1, 205-pounder with interesting power potential generated from a sweeping uppercut swing. His release and catching skills are raw, unrefined and somewhat stiff. He employs a spread-out, crouching stance at the plate, with his hands held well beyond his back shoulder. An Oregon recruit like Sabol, Jones will be a tough sign.
29 1134 Los Angeles Angels Tagen Struhs OF Snohomish, Wash. (No school) Wash.
30 1135 New York Yankees Cameron Hobson LHP Dayton Ohio
