1 1496 Washington Nationals Harrison Fanaroff LHP Churchill HS, Potomac, Md. Md.
2 1497 Pittsburgh Pirates Dusty Isaacs RHP Lebanon (Ohio) HS Ohio
3 1498 Baltimore Orioles Philip Walby RHP Scripps Ranch HS, San Diego Calif.
4 1499 Kansas City Royals Joe Jackson C Mauldin HS, Greenville, S.C. S.C.
5 1500 Cleveland Indians Henry Dunn OF Binghamton N.Y.
Dunn packs athleticism and strength into a 5-foot-7, 175-pound frame. He followed up his good summer in the New England Collegiate League with a solid spring, hitting .344/.408/.626 with 10 homers, 51 RBIs and 13 stolen bases. Dunn's plus-plus speed plays well in center field, where he has good range and instincts. He's a line-drive hitter with occasional pop, but he'll have little home run power at the next level. He tends to get pull-happy and could benefit by learning to use the opposite field better.
6 1501 Arizona Diamondbacks Trey Ford 3B South Mountain (Ariz.) CC Ariz.
7 1502 New York Mets Mark Eveld C Tampa Jesuit HS Fla.
8 1503 Houston Astros David Donald OF Mann HS, Greenville, S.C. S.C.
Outfielder David Donald is a standout athlete who also had a strong prep football career and is still developing his baseball skills. He has raw bat speed, above-average speed and strength in his 5-foot-11, 175-pound frame. A center fielder, he has poor instincts across the board, and his lack of pitch recognition hinders his ability to make contact. He was considered an easy sign who will appeal to organizations that like to develop toolsy players. Initially committed to College of Charleston, he fell back to Tallahassee (Fla.) CC.
9 1504 San Diego Padres Gunnar Terhune OF UC Santa Barbara Calif.
10 1505 Oakland Athletics T.J. Walz RHP Kansas Kan.
At times, Walz will flash a 91-94 mph fastball and a plus breaking ball, and he has won eight games in each of the last two seasons for Kansas. But the 6-foot, 175-pound righthander also confounds scouts, because there are games where he works at 88-91 mph and he has more of a slurve. His stuff, ability to throw strikes and his competitiveness earned him a spot on Team USA last summer, yet he was telling teams he plans on returning for his senior season.
11 1506 Toronto Blue Jays Kelly Norris-Jones C Lambrick Park SS, Victoria, B.C. British Columbia
12 1507 Cincinnati Reds Dex Kjerstad OF Randall HS, Amarillo, Texas Texas
Outfielder Dexter Kjerstad has enticing strength and speed to go with a 6-foot-2, 205-pound frame. But he's also so raw at the plate and so strongly committed to Texas that he probably won't be an early choice. With three years of polish, he could be a good pick in 2013.
13 1508 Chicago White Sox David Vazquez 2B Archbishop McCarthy HS, Southwest Ranches, Fla. Fla.
14 1509 Milwaukee Brewers Chad Jones OF Louisiana State La.
If Chad Jones had stuck to baseball, he was gifted enough to be a potential first-round pick as either an outfielder or a lefthanded pitcher. A 6-foot-3, 220-pounder with super athleticism, he showed strength, speed, an 88-93 mph fastball and a power slider in limited baseball action at Louisiana State, playing a key bullpen role on the Tigers' 2009 College World Series champions. He also won a national title in football as a safety, and the New York Giants took him in the third round of the NFL draft in April. A baseball team will take a flier on Jones in case football doesn't work out.
15 1510 Chicago Cubs Eric Jagielo SS Downers Grove (Ill.) North HS Ill.
16 1511 Tampa Bay Rays Cory Maltz RHP Weatherford (Texas) JC Texas
17 1512 Seattle Mariners David Holman RHP Hutchinson (Kan.) CC Kan.
18 1513 Detroit Tigers Jake Ross LHP Wor-Wic (Md.) CC Md.
19 1514 Atlanta Braves Cory Gabella SS Notre Dame HS, Burlington, Iowa Iowa
20 1515 Minnesota Twins James Harris 3B Etowah HS, Woodstock, Ga. Ga.
21 1516 Texas Rangers Trevor Teykl RHP Kempner HS, Sugar Land, Texas Texas
22 1517 Florida Marlins Dan Carney 1B Notre Dame HS, East Stroudsburg, Pa. Pa.
23 1518 San Francisco Giants Golden Tate OF Notre Dame Ill.
24 1519 St. Louis Cardinals Andy Moye RHP Georgia Southern Ga.
25 1520 Colorado Rockies James Dykstra RHP Yavapai (Ariz.) JC Ariz.
Righthander Dykstra is the younger brother of Padres prospect Alan Dykstra. Dykstra is a converted outfielder with a strong arm and a projectable body. He has been clocked at 92-93 mph, but his breaking ball needs work and he'll be a tough sell to scouting directors because he threw a handful of innings this year.
26 1521 Philadelphia Phillies Damek Tomscha 3B Sioux City (Iowa) North HS Iowa
27 1522 Los Angeles Dodgers Taylor Kaczmarek RHP Desert Ridge HS, Mesa, Ariz. Ariz.
28 1523 Boston Red Sox Weston Hoekel RHP Bishop Kenny HS, Jacksonville, Fla. Fla.
29 1524 Los Angeles Angels John Wiedenbauer LHP Tampa Fla.
Wiedenbauer is a lefthander who pitches in the upper 80s but lacks command.
30 1525 New York Yankees Matt Rice C Western Kentucky Ky.
Rice doesn't do anything pretty, but he gets the job done at the plate and as a catcher. His biggest complicating factor is that he's a candidate to become Western Kentucky's first-ever Rhodes scholar. Rice has a spread-out righty stance and an uphill swing that may not work well with wood bats, but he hits line drives, has gap power and set a school record with a 31-game hitting streak in 2009. His long release detracts from his arm strength, though he threw out 30 percent of basestealers this year. His receiving skills are just decent, but at 6-foot-3 and 195 pounds he's more athletic than most catchers. The Rhodes Scholarship is probably the most prestigious in the world, granting college graduates the opportunity to study at Oxford University in England. It could drive Rice down in the draft, however.
