1 1436 Washington Nationals Brandon Miller C Northwest Florida State JC Fla.
2 1437 Pittsburgh Pirates Dillon Haviland LHP South Fayette HS, McDonald, Pa. Pa.
3 1438 Baltimore Orioles Alex Schmarzo RHP St. Mary's Calif.
Righthander Schmarzo, the Gaels' closer, is not a slam dunk to be picked as a junior, but with an 88-91 mph fastball and changeup that is average at times he has a chance to develop in pro ball. Has some deception in the delivery but struggles to repeat it, and he'll have to develop a better breaking ball.
4 1439 Kansas City Royals Jacob Hannemann OF Lone Peak HS, Highland, Utah Utah
5 1440 Cleveland Indians C.T. Bradford OF Pace (Fla.) HS Fla.
6 1441 Arizona Diamondbacks Kenny Sigman RHP South Mountain (Ariz.) CC Ariz.
7 1442 New York Mets Austin Smith 1B Pensacola (Fla.) Catholic HS Fla.
8 1443 Houston Astros T.J. Pecoraro RHP Half Hollow Hills West HS, Dix Hills, N.Y. N.Y.
Pecoraro, a righthander is just 6 feet, 155 pounds, but he has a quick arm and advanced feel for pitching. He flashed 93-94 mph heat at the Area Code Games last summer but has worked in the 86-91 mph range this spring. His curveball and changeup can be inconsistent, but both project as average offerings, and he has good command down in the strike zone. Durability is a question and leads some scouts to project Pecoraro as a middle reliever, but he is wiry strong. Pecoraro considered attending San Jacinto (Texas) JC to be eligible for the draft again in 2011, but he will instead honor his commitment to Vanderbilt.
9 1444 San Diego Padres Dan Child RHP Jesuit HS, Sacramento Calif.
Finding big league talent outside of the top few rounds is as good as gold to MLB clubs, which makes 6-foot-5, 230-pound righthander Child interesting. He can get his fastball up to 95 mph and sit in the low 90s, but he tends to pitch in the 88-91 range, striving for more control. Scouts who catch him on the right day will see a power downer breaking ball with good velocity and bite, somewhat reminiscent of a Brad Lidge slider. But his delivery is not easy on the eyes, and he is not a strike thrower, though he has gained more control while working with a private pitching coach. Child has below-average athleticism and had little high school success heading into his senior season. He is committed to Oregon State.
10 1445 Oakland Athletics Zach Johnson 1B Ohlone (Calif.) JC Calif.
11 1446 Toronto Blue Jays Nick Studer C St. Michael's College HS, Toronto Ontario
12 1447 Cincinnati Reds Kaiana Eldredge C Punahou HS, Honolulu Hawaii
Eldredge is another athletic catcher. This is his first year playing behind the plate, but he made the transition nicely because of his athleticism and arm strength. Before catching, he was a shortstop and a pitcher, sitting at 86-88 mph off the mound and touching 90. He's an average runner and a gap-to-gap hitter who is committed to Kansas.
13 1448 Chicago White Sox Audry Santana 2B Mariner HS, Cape Coral, Fla. Fla.
14 1449 Milwaukee Brewers Marques Kyles LHP Limestone (S.C.) S.C.
15 1450 Chicago Cubs Eric Paulson 3B Fremd HS, Palatine, Ill. Ill.
16 1451 Tampa Bay Rays Blake Barnes RHP Howard (Texas) JC Texas
Blake Barnes might have made a case for getting drafted ahead of Howard JC teammate Burch Smith. He showed a 90-92 mph fastball, touched 95 and displayed a true slider when he was 100 percent. There's still projection remaining in his 6-foot-2, 175-pound frame. He has committed to Oklahoma State for his junior season.
17 1452 Seattle Mariners Patrick Brady 2B Bellarmine (Ky.) Ky.
18 1453 Detroit Tigers Tyler Marincov OF Timber Creek HS, Orlando Fla.
19 1454 Atlanta Braves James Mahler RHP Salt Lake (Utah) CC Utah
Righthander Mahler spent his freshman year at Arkansas and returned to Utah--where he went to high school--for his sophomore year. He stands 6-foot-6 and 235 pounds and throws in the 86-88 mph range. Scouts are waiting for a jump in velocity, but Mahler doesn't have good coordination of his big frame. He also throws a spike curveball and a changeup. His father Mickey and uncle Rick combined for 21 seasons as pitchers in the big leagues. If he doesn't sign, James is committed to return to the SEC at Mississippi.
20 1455 Minnesota Twins Troy Scott 1B Washington Wash.
21 1456 Texas Rangers Forrest Koumas RHP Lugoff-Elgin HS, Lugoff, S.C. S.C.
Righthander Forrest Koumas, a South Carolina signee, had the best pure arm strength in the state despite standing just 5-foot-11, 180 pounds. He has a quick arm and has touched 94 mph with his fastball while showing a plus breaking ball on occasion. Scouts considered Koumas more signable than the average Gamecocks recruit, but as an undersized rigihthander it's not clear how much teams will invest in that effort.
22 1457 Florida Marlins Beau Wright LHP Orange Coast (Calif.) CC Calif. $125,000
23 1458 San Francisco Giants Devin Harris OF East Carolina N.C.
His former teammate, outfielder Harris, figured to be drafted again but not as high as the eighth round, where he went last year as an eligible sophomore. Harris has big tools with his plus arm and raw power potential. He also has shown a disappointing lack of aptitude for hitting, ranking second in Conference USA in strikeouts for the second consecutive season.
24 1459 St. Louis Cardinals Hector Acosta C Coffeyville (Kan.) CC Kan.
Hector Acosta is an athletic catcher with gap power, solid speed (he stole 38 bases) and arm strength.
25 1460 Colorado Rockies Hunter Greenwood RHP Franklin HS, Elk Grove, Calif. Calif.
Six-foot-2, 195-pound righthander Hunter Greenwood got on the map during the Northern California scout team schedule last fall. He has been up to 92 mph and has a strong, durable build. His secondary stuff is unrefined and he would be more attractive as a summer follow. He has committed to Sacramento State.
26 1461 Philadelphia Phillies Kyle Ottoson LHP South Mountain (Ariz.) CC Ariz.
27 1462 Los Angeles Dodgers Anthony Garcia 2B Chavez HS, Laveen, Ariz. Ariz.
28 1463 Boston Red Sox J.T. Autrey RHP Stephenville (Texas) HS Texas
29 1464 Los Angeles Angels Chad Yinger RHP Southern Arkansas Ark.
30 1465 New York Yankees Alex Brown RHP Amphitheater HS, Tucson Ariz.
