1 1286 Washington Nationals Corey Littrell LHP Trinity HS, Louisville Ky.
Lefthander Littrell is the state's best high school player, but he has more polish than stuff and isn't considered signable away from Kentucky. He usually works at 87-88 mph and touches 90 with his fastball, has a quality changeup and has improved his curveball. He should pick up velocity as he adds strength to his 6-foot-2, 180-pound frame.
2 1287 Pittsburgh Pirates Garrett Hicks RHP Yucaipa (Calif.) HS Calif.
3 1288 Baltimore Orioles Blair Dunlap OF UCLA Calif.
4 1289 Kansas City Royals Dillon Wilson LHP Western Oklahoma State JC Okla.
5 1290 Cleveland Indians Chris Waylock SS Cary-Grove HS, Cary, Ill. Ill.
6 1291 Arizona Diamondbacks Tom Belza 2B Oklahoma State Okla.
7 1292 New York Mets Donnie Tabb SS East Central (Miss.) CC Miss.
Five-foot-8 shortstop Donnie Tabb wasn't drafted coming out of high school last year, thanks to his size and unrefined tools. He had a strong year at East Central CC and might be able to stay in the middle infield thanks to excellent arm strength and quickness.
8 1293 Houston Astros DeMarcus Henderson SS Wayne County HS, Waynesboro, Miss. Miss.
A Mississippi State recruit, he's athletic and was the starting quarterback on a 5-A state championship football team. Henderson has present strength and speed that rates 60 on the 20-80 scale. His defensive tools include an average arm and good lateral movement, though he lacks consistency on routine plays. He likely fits better at second base down the road, though he would have a chance to start at short at Mississippi State. Henderson has some hitting ability, but breaking balls will give him trouble out of the box in pro ball.
9 1294 San Diego Padres Mark Hardy LHP British Columbia British Columbia
10 1295 Oakland Athletics Spencer Haynes SS Brandon (Fla.) HS Fla.
11 1296 Toronto Blue Jays Ron Schreurs LHP Freedom HS, Orlando Fla.
12 1297 Cincinnati Reds Matt Campbell RHP Florida Fla.
13 1298 Chicago White Sox Luke Irvine RHP Northwestern State La.
Righthander Luke Irvine made an immediate impact at Northwestern State after transferring from Maple Woods (Mo.) CC, going 7-4, 2.91 with 104 strikeouts in 93 innings. He can touch 93-94 mph with his fastball, but scouts aren't in love with his body (6-foot-1, 200 pounds) or his secondary pitches. He projects more as a reliever once he turns pro.
14 1299 Milwaukee Brewers Steven Okert LHP Grayson County (Texas) CC Texas
15 1300 Chicago Cubs Dan Winkler RHP Parkland (Ill.) JC Ill.
16 1301 Tampa Bay Rays Ryan Hornback C San Jacinto (Texas) JC Texas
Hornback has soft hands and a strong arm, but the 6-foot, 170-pounder needs more strength as well.
17 1302 Seattle Mariners Matt Browning 3B James Madison Va.
18 1303 Detroit Tigers Blake Bell RHP Bishop Carroll Catholic HS, Wichita Kan.
19 1304 Atlanta Braves LeJon Baker OF Crenshaw HS, Los Angeles Calif.
20 1305 Minnesota Twins Derek Christensen RHP Salt Lake CC Utah
Righthander Christensen profiles as a reliever with his 90-92 mph fastball and fringy slider. He competes hard and is committed to Utah.
21 1306 Texas Rangers Chris Roglen OF Rocky Mountain HS, Fort Collins, Colo. Colo.
22 1307 Florida Marlins Matt Tracy LHP Mississippi Miss.
23 1308 San Francisco Giants Raymond Ruggles RHP Tusculum (Tenn.) Tenn.
24 1309 St. Louis Cardinals Chris Edmondson OF Le Moyne N.Y.
Edmondson was the centerpiece of Le Moyne's lineup this spring, hitting .348 with 12 of the team's 37 homers and 50 RBIs. A fringy runner who profiles as a left fielder, Edmondson will go as far as his lefthanded bat carries him. His compact swing produces average power.
25 1310 Colorado Rockies Kaleb Barlow 3B Jackson (Miss.) Prep Miss.
26 1311 Philadelphia Phillies Jimmy Hodgskin LHP Bishop Moore HS, Orlando Fla.
Hodgskin could be the highest-profile baseball recruit Troy has ever had, and scouts in Florida were wondering whether it was worth making a run at keeping him from the Alabama school. Hodgskin trains with and plays for coach Joe Logan, who played for Troy coach Bobby Pierce at Chipola (Fla.) JC. The relationship led to Hodgskin's interest in Troy. Hodgskin has a relatively fresh arm, good size at 6-foot-2, 190 pounds, broad shoulders that give him room for projection, and an 88-91 mph fastball. He has touched 94 and pitches off his fastball, throwing it to all four parts of the strike zone. His command gives him a chance to step right into Troy's weekend rotation, as he also throws his changeup for strikes. He has a below-average breaking ball that he just started throwing frequently in the last year. Projecting the curveball adds another level of uncertainty for pro scouts, who may just see how it all turns out after three seasons in the Sun Belt Conference. The lack of lefthanded pitching nationally, though, had teams taking long looks at Hodgskin, and they'll get another in Sebring at the state's high school all-star festival. If he's signable, Hodgskin could go in the third or fourth round.
27 1312 Los Angeles Dodgers Chad Wallach RHP Calvary Chapel HS, Pacific Grove, Calif. Calif.
28 1313 Boston Red Sox Pat Smith OF Redan HS, Stone Mountain, Ga. Ga.
29 1314 Los Angeles Angels George Barber OF Broward (Fla.) CC Fla.
30 1315 New York Yankees Kyle Hunter LHP Kansas State Kan.
