Round Overall Team Player Position State Bonus
6 186 Toronto Blue Jays Sean Nolin LHP Texas $175,000
At 6-foot-4 and 250 pounds, Sean Nolin looks like a lefthanded version of Jason Jennings. Nolin's fastball will sit at 86-89 mph in some games and 88-92 in others, and he backs it up with a solid changeup and fringy curveball.
10 298 Baltimore Orioles Clay Schrader RHP Texas $300,000
Schrader went to Texas-San Antonio as a two-way player and had middling success as a starting pitcher in 2009, going 2-1, 3.97 with 43 strikeouts in 45 innings. After transferring to San Jacinto for 2010, he has found his true calling as a reliever. He helped the Gators reach the Junior College World Series, saving 11 games and ranking third nationally with 15.9 strikeouts per nine innings through regional play. Schrader has two legitimate plus pitches, a 91-95 mph fastball and a mid-80s slider. His low-80s curveball can be devastating at times as well. Scouts worry about his size (6 feet, 190 pounds), arm action and maximum-effort delivery, but his power stuff still should land him in the top six or seven rounds. If he doesn't turn pro, he'll attend Oklahoma.
12 358 Baltimore Orioles Riley Hornback OF Texas
13 386 Washington Nationals Chris McKenzie RHP Texas $125,000
13 394 San Diego Padres Miguel Pena LHP Texas
Lefthander Miguel Pena declined to sign with the Nationals as a fifth-round pick out of high school a year ago, and he has been the same pitcher as a freshman at San Jacinto JC this spring. He hasn't added any strength to his 6-foot-2, 160-pound frame, and he still works at 88-91 mph early in games before losing velocity in the middle innings. He has a clean delivery that he repeats well, and he throws a decent curveball and changeup. He doesn't have a plus pitch but he's a polished lefthander, and he'll probably go around the same spot again in the draft.
16 476 Washington Nationals Mark Herrera RHP Texas
Righty Mark Herrera, who started his college career at St. Mary's (Texas), has a 90-93 mph fastball that touches 96 and a mid-80s slider. Scouts don't love his 6-foot-3, 225-pound body or his delivery, though.
18 548 Chicago White Sox Randall Thorpe OF Texas
43 1301 Tampa Bay Rays Ryan Hornback C Texas
Hornback has soft hands and a strong arm, but the 6-foot, 170-pounder needs more strength as well.
46 1392 Seattle Mariners David Rollins LHP Texas
The state has several injured pitchers whom teams could gamble on this year. That group includes: Houston righthander Jared Ray (shoulder) and Texas Tech lefthander Robbie Kilcrease (Tommy John surgery) at the college level; Howard righty Damien Magnifico (elbow), San Jacinto righty Tommy Collier (elbow) and lefty David Rollins (non-throwing shoulder), who ranked as three of Texas' top five juco pitchers coming into the season; and Klein High (Spring) righty Clayton Crum (Tommy John surgery).
