Round Overall Team Player Position State Bonus
10 320 Colorado Rockies Brett Tanos 2B Calif. $75,000
Tanos was a high school teammate of Josh Vitters, now a top prospect in the Cub organization and the 3rd overall pick in the 2007 draft. Tanos is a hyper, high energy player with a strong, mature frame. An infielder, he profiles best at 2B or 3B but defense is not his best attribute. Tanos has a quick bat which generates excellent bat speed. He takes a big cut and will fail to square up many pitches, but his 10 home runs, .638 slugging pct. and .427 obp in JC ball this year give a hint of his offensive potential.
25 746 Washington Nationals Christian Meza LHP Calif.
26 805 New York Yankees R.J. Hively RHP Calif.
Santa Ana JC has produced many fine players, among them Braves pitching star Kris Medlen. Rigthander Hively, a tall and rangy righthander, may follow in that tradition. He smoothly delivers a 88-89 mph fastball from a frame that promises more velocity in the future.
