Round Overall Team Player Position State Bonus
6 200 Colorado Rockies Jared Simon OF Fla. $125,000
Tampa's top power threat was Jared Simon, who had a big 2009 in the wood-bat Valley League, belting 11 home runs. He has shown patience at that plate that allows him to tap into his average-to-plus power. He's moved to the outfield after earlier attempts at third base.
10 305 Oakland Athletics Josh Bowman RHP Fla. $75,000
Bowman has two average pitches in his fastball and curve and should be a double-digit pick.
14 428 Chicago White Sox Mike Blanke C Fla.
Physical catcher/first baseman Mike Blanke likely will be the first Spartans position-player picked, though his defense lags behind his solid bat.
15 474 Los Angeles Angels Carmine Giardina LHP Fla.
Fellow lefty Carmine Giardina finally should go out to pro ball as a senior, ending a college career that began with him committing to Texas, then going to Central Florida and finally Tampa. As a senior, Giardina showed a better feel for pitching than he had in the past while also retaining his arm strength, reaching 92 mph.
17 518 Chicago White Sox Mike Schwartz 1B Fla.
18 542 New York Mets A.J. Pinera RHP Fla.
23 698 Chicago White Sox Austin Evans RHP Fla.
37 1112 New York Mets Dylan Brown OF Fla.
Spartans outfielder Brown, an Oklahoma State transfer and the younger brother of Athletics prospect Corey Brown, also will get a look thanks to his raw power. His undisciplined approach hinders him offensively.
50 1524 Los Angeles Angels John Wiedenbauer LHP Fla.
Wiedenbauer is a lefthander who pitches in the upper 80s but lacks command.
