1 11 Deck McGuire RHP Georgia Tech Ga. $2,000,000
McGuire is a Virginia product who was a mid-week starter as a freshman at Georgia Tech before settling in as the Yellow Jackets' Friday starter the last two seasons. He had more success for the first three-quarters of 2009 than he had at the end of last season, when he was hammered in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament and in regional play--he gave up nine runs to Southern Miss in the regional final working on two days' rest. McGuire's stuff hasn't been quite as crisp since then, and scouts have lowered their expectations for the 6-foot-6, 218-pounder, but most still see him as a No. 3 or No. 4 starter in the majors. McGuire commands a 90-92 mph fastball that hits 94, and he throws with a good downhill angle to the plate, making it tough to elevate. His fastball has a bit less life than it used to. McGuire also throws strikes with his curveball and harder slurve, and his changeup is average to fringe-average. He's an excellent competitor who doesn't fold up with runners on base. He's a proven college winner with a good track record of performance and durability; similar prospects rarely last through the first half of the first round.
1s 34 Aaron Sanchez RHP Barstow (Calif.) HS Calif. $775,000
Sanchez has lured scouts to Barstow, stuck in the middle of the California desert halfway between Los Angeles and Las Vegas. Only one player--Royals righty Matt Mitchell, a 2007 14th-round pick--has been drafted out of Barstow in the last 20 years. Sanchez, an angular and projectable Oregon recruit, should change that. He first drew the attention of scouts (and comparisons to Orel Hershiser) during last summer's showcase season, when he starred in the Area Code Games and the Aflac game. Utilizing an easy, mid-three-quarters arm action, Sanchez flashes a 91-93 mph fastball and adds a crisp curve. Mechanically advanced, Sanchez uses his legs well in his pitching delivery, avoids flying his front shoulder open and finishes strongly while creating a decent downward plane. As he progresses, the 6-foot-3, 175-pounder will need to develop more movement on his fastball, which is now too straight. His command is negatively affected by variances in his arm slot, and Sanchez will need to add at least a pitch and potentially two to his current arsenal. Sanchez profiles as a No. 3 starter. He may take some time to reach the majors, but his tantalizing upside is difficult for any organization to ignore.
1s 38 Noah Syndergaard RHP Legacy HS, Mansfield, Texas Texas $600,000
Syndergaard had as much helium as any Texas high schooler leading up to the draft. He led Legacy High into the 4-A regional semifinals by two-hitting Trimble Tech (Fort Worth) in the first round, striking out 10 and hitting a grand slam against Lake Dallas in the second round, and striking out 15 against Birdville in the quarterfinals. He was even better in the semis, coming within one out of a no-hitter and striking out 14 against Frenship (Wolfforth). Syndergaard has an athletic 6-foot-4, 195-pound frame, and was dealing 90-94 mph fastballs in the postseason. His curveball also was much improved, and there's talk that the Dallas Baptist recruit suddenly could sneak into the sandwich round with the right club.
1s 41 Asher Wojciechowski RHP The Citadel S.C. $815,400
Wojciechowski grew up in Michigan but moved to South Carolina during high school with his family, in part for the strong college baseball. He wound up at The Citadel and has been a weekend staple for three seasons, earning a spot on USA Baseball's college national team last summer. Noted mostly for his 6-foot-4, 230-pound frame and above-average hard slider previously, Wojciechowski worked off the fastball more last summer with Team USA at the urging of Elon coach Mike Kennedy, who was Team USA's pitching coach. Wojciechowski took the advice to heart and has thrown harder as a result of throwing more fastballs and honing his mechanics. After throwing 89-92 mph last year, Wojciechowski has shown one of college baseball's best heaters this season, sitting 93-96 in numerous starts and reaching 96 in the eighth inning in at least two starts. Wojciechowski's slider is still a plus pitch, but he needs work on his rudimentary changeup. He has good control of his fastball and the durable frame to project as a mid-rotation innings-eater.
2 61 Griffin Murphy LHP Redlands (Calif.) East Valley HS Calif. $800,000
As the 2010 spring season opened, Murphy quickly established himself as the premier lefthander in the Southern California prep ranks, and he joins Dylan Covey in San Diego's recruiting class. Strong and durable, in both frame and pitching style Murphy resembles Angels lefty Joe Saunders. While not a flamethrower, Murphy likes to establish his 89-92 mph fastball early in a game and work his other pitches off of it. He shows an uncanny knack for manipulating his fastball--he can run it in, run it away, sink it or turn it over. Few lefties can succeed without a quality curveball, and Murphy has one. His sweeping, 75 mph bender exhibits fine shape and two-plane movement, but he needs to work the curve down in the strike zone more consistently. Mechanically solid, Murphy loads up well on his back hip and does a fine job of accelerating his arm at release. A fast worker, he may benefit from slowing his motion down a shade and by improving his leg drive. Murphy's size (6-foot-3, 195 pounds), stuff and pitching smarts could easily push him up into the first two rounds.
2 69 Kellen Sweeney 3B Jefferson HS, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Iowa $600,000
Sweeney's older brother Ryan was a White Sox second-round pick in 2003 and now starts in right field for the Athletics. Ryan was the better athlete—he could have been drafted just as high as a pitcher—but Kellen is a better hitter at the same stage of their careers. The 6-foot-1, 180-pounder has a quick lefthanded bat, a fluid stroke and good pull power. He struggled on the showcase circuit last summer, but scouts don't hold that against him because he hurt his elbow pitching in the final game of his junior season and required Tommy John surgery in August. Though he's a slightly above-average runner, Sweeney doesn't cover enough ground to stick at shortstop in pro ball. Assuming he regains his previous arm strength, he could make a good third baseman, and it's possible he could handle second base. Sweeney will go a few rounds later than his brother did, but that should be high enough to divert him from attending San Diego.
2 80 Justin Nicolino LHP University HS, Orlando Fla. $615,000
If teams considered him signable, lefthander Nicolino could factor into the first three rounds for some scouts. While it's hard to call Florida prep pitchers projectable because they throw year-round, Nicolino is just growing into his 6-foot-3 frame, having put on 15 pounds since last summer to get up to 175 pounds. Nicolino pitches off his fastball in the 88-91 mph range and has shown a curveball with average potential. His changeup is the better pitch now, and it's easy to see him as a three-pitch lefty with plus velocity down the line. It's also considered hard to buy Nicolino out of a Virginia commitment when scouts have to project on the velocity. A strong showing at the state all-star games in Sebring, though, could prod a team to pop Nicolino.
3 93 Chris Hawkins 3B North Gwinnett HS, Suwanee, Ga. Ga. $350,000
Hawkins is a high school shortstop who is projected to play third base if he winds up at Tennessee. Most scouts don't necessarily see him staying in the dirt as a pro, but they do see tools that stand out even among Georgia's deep, talented class of high school athletes. Most project him as a center fielder thanks to his above-average speed. That has some scouts dreaming of Hawkins, a lefthanded hitter, as a poor man's Colby Rasmus, but he isn't as easy or fluid as Rasmus was at the same stage. Hawkns also has arm strength, and if his 6-foot-3, 210-pound frame proves too big for him to stay in center, he is athletic enough to handle a corner. Hawkins doesn't have Rasmus' all-around hitting ability, but he has a track record of success and has shown the ability to catch up to good fastballs this spring. He has performed well in front of crosscheckers all spring, leading North Gwinnett to a playoff berth while surpassing double digits in home runs. He carried a 29-game hitting streak into the state 5-A playoff semifinals, having set school records with 14 homers, 19 doubles and 58 hits. The strong finish was pushing Hawkins up draft boards, and he was considered a potential second- or third-round selection.
3s 113 Marcus Knecht OF Connors State (Okla.) JC Okla. $250,000
After getting drafted in the 23rd round by the Brewers and playing for Canada at the World Junior Championship in 2008, Knecht went to Oklahoma State and got just 12 at-bats as a freshman last spring. Unhappy with his playing time, he transferred to Connors State, where he has electrified scouts. Knecht's 6-foot-3, 210-pound frame generates plenty of bat speed and raw righthanded power. He ranked among the national juco leaders in hitting (.453) and homers (21), though he struggled at times to make consistent contact against good velocity. Knecht is more than just a slugger. He ran a 6.55-second 60-yard dash during Connors State's scout day in the fall, and he earns solid 55 grades on the 20-80 scouting scale for his speed and his accurate arm. He lacks the instincts for center field and played left for the Cowboys this spring, and it's possible he could play right field as a pro. Knecht doesn't have a long track record, but his huge power potential and all-around tools are attractive to teams. He has committed to North Carolina State, though he's expected to turn pro after getting drafted in the first three rounds. The Blue Jays have a natural interest in Canadians and could choose Knecht as early as the sandwich round.
4 126 Sam Dyson RHP South Carolina S.C. $600,000
Dyson was a 19th-round pick of the Nationals out of Jesuit High in Tampa in 2006, but he decided to attend South Carolina. He missed his freshman season after having labrum surgery and seemed primed to go out high in the 2009 draft, as he showed power stuff and good competitiveness. His medical history, though, helped push him down draft boards, and he wound up as the Athletics' 10th-round pick and didn't sign. After going 17-4 his first two seasons, he hadn't posted as gaudy a record as a redshirt junior, but his 5-5, 3.92 season actually was more impressive. Dyson has dialed his velocity down into the 92-93 mph range rather than the upper 90s and sitting 93-95. He can still flash that kind of velocity but has sacrificed it for better command and life. He's driving the ball down in the strike zone more and had cut his home runs allowed from 18 in 102 innings to three in 83 innings. Dyson is at his best when he is throwing his curveball for strikes and not just using it as a chase pitch. He also throws a slider in the mid-80s that doesn't have great depth, but he locates it better than the curve. His changeup has made progress as well. Dyson's medical history is what it is, but he has been durable over the last two seasons, making every start and approaching 200 innings total. His improved control should allow him to stay in a rotation in the near-term, though his power stuff could lend itself to a bullpen role eventually.
5 156 Dickie Joe Thon SS Academia Perpetio Socorro, San Juan, P.R. P.R. $1,500,000
It's a bit of a down year in Puerto Rico, but the best player on the island has a familiar name in shortstop Dickie Joe Thon. The son of the former big leaguer, the younger Thon is a little bigger than his father at 6-foot-2 and 175 pounds. Thon was born in Houston and grew up there before moving to Puerto Rico for high school. Despite being the son of a big leaguer, Thon isn't the polished product some may expect. That's because he hasn't focused solely on baseball yet. Thon is a great athlete who also competes in basketball, volleyball and track and field. Thon isn't a flashy defender, but makes all the routine plays. He has good feet, soft hands and an above-average arm. His bat is a little inconsistent right now, but he profiles as a good top-of-the-order hitter. He has gap power and could grow into some home run power as he continues to fill out and drives more balls. Thon is an average runner out of the box, but is above-average under way. He has good baseball instincts and projects to steal 20-30 bases a year. Signability is the biggest question with Thon because his father apparently wants him to attend Rice. It could take seven figures to buy him out of school, or teams could just see if Thon will blossom into a first-rounder three years from now.
6 186 Sean Nolin LHP San Jacinto (Texas) JC 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.
7 216 Mitchell Taylor LHP Spring (Texas) HS Texas $367,500
Taylor won Spring's regular-season finale to qualify his team for the Texas 5-A playoffs, where he boosted his stock more than any pitcher in the top 10 rounds. In the opening round against College Park (The Woodlands), he struck out 10 to win the first game and came back in relief two days later to work three shutout innings and outduel John Simms for the victory. He did the same thing in round two against Cy-Fair (Cypress), winning the opener as a starter and the deciding third game as a reliever. Taylor ran out of gas in the third round, losing a 4-3 decision to Klein Collins (Spring), but drove in six of Spring's 12 runs in the two-game series. He's a little lefty with a whippy arm, throwing 88-93 mph despite standing just 6-foot-1 and 160 pounds. He also has a big-breaking curveball that some scouts grade as better than his fastball. He's polished for a high schooler, throwing strikes and exhibiting good mound presence. Though he has committed to Houston, Taylor is expected to sign. A midseason suspension has caused some clubs to back away, but he could go as high as the fourth round.
8 246 Logan Ehlers LHP Nebraska City (Neb.) HS Neb.
Logan Ehlers set what is believed to be a Nebraska high school record with 186 strikeouts in 78 innings this spring. A 6-foot-2, 200-pound lefthander, he usually pitches from 87-91 mph with his fastball, and his curveball may be his best pitch. He has more command and polish than most high school lefties, and combined with his stuff he should go in the top 10 rounds if he's signable away from a Nebraska commitment.
9 276 Brandon Mims SS Smith HS, Carrollton, Texas Texas $230,000
Brandon Mims stands out most for his speed and athleticism. The 6-foot, 170-pound switch-hitter has the chance to be an igniter at the top of a lineup, though he doesn't have much power. He has the hands and arm to stay at shortstop. Because he hasn't committed to a four-year school, he should be a relatively easy sign.
10 306 Tyler Shreve RHP Phelps County HS, Redlands, Calif. Calif.
Last summer, Shreve was brilliant in several showcase events, including the Area Code games. Later in August, he seemed tired and worn out during a one inning stint at the Aflac game, and was visibly upset with himself when returning to the dugout. Just as the 2010 spring baseball season was about to begin, Shreve was dismissed from his high school team after a run-in with his coach. If Shreve is forgiven for his transgressions, the club drafting him will receive a premium talent. Shreve fires a 91-93 mph fastball and adds a hard 77 mph curve and fine 83-85 mph change. While questions about this character and makeup will always hound Shreve among baseball people, his talent is undeniable. His immediate future is probably as a college quarterback (he's signed with Utah), but it is possible that one club may draft Shreve and take a gamble on him
11 336 Shane Opitz SS Heritage HS, Centennial, Colo. Colo. $225,000
Shane Opitz is a good athlete who was an all-state wide receiver and a guard on Heritage High's basketball team. But his best sport is baseball, where the 6-foot-2, 185-pounder plays shortstop and swings a lefthanded bat. He's a solid defender, but profiles better as an offensive second baseman. He's a hard worker and the type of player who could blossom when he focuses on baseball year-round. Opitz's older brother Jake was a 12th-round pick by the Cubs out of Nebraska in 2008. Shane is also committed to Nebraska, but may not end up there, as he could be taken in the eighth to 12th round.
12 366 Omar Cotto OF Bonneville School, San Juan, P.R. P.R.
Center fielder Cotto has blazing speed, regarded by scouts as a legitimate 80 on the 20-80 scouting scale. At the island's annual Excellence Tournament in May, Cotto ran a 6.29-second 60-yard dash. But speed and defense are his only standout tools at the moment. He has a below-average arm and is a weak hitter. If he learns how to put the ball in play consistently he'll be an offensive threat, though, because of his game-changing speed. He is a switch-hitter and shows some bat speed from the right side of the plate, while he's more of a slap hitter from the left. Cotto made a late commitment to Southern California.
13 396 Tyler Painton LHP Centennial HS, Bakersfield, Calif. Calif.
14 426 Dayton Marze RHP Louisiana-Lafayette La. $112,500
15 456 Zak Adams LHP Flower Mound (Texas) HS Texas $250,000
Lefty Zak Adams is a 6-foot-3, 175-pounder who has an 88-91 mph fastball and a good 12-to-6 curveball. He also has a medical history that includes three surgeries.
16 486 Dalton Pompey OF Fraser SS, Mississauga, Ont. Ontario $150,000
Switch-hitting outfielder Pompey emerged late as one of Canada's top prep prospects. Another national team alumnus, he stands 6-foot-1 and 170 pounds. He has a wiry build but is athletic with deceptive strength. He has quick hands and caught up to former big leaguer Mike MacDougal and an Astros prospect throwing 100 mph during the team's tour through Florida this spring. He's a solid-average runner and some scouts see him as a tweener--not fast enough for center field and not strong enough for a corner. If he doesn't sign, he'll head to NAIA St. Francis (Ind.).
17 516 Myles Jaye RHP Starrs Mill HS, Fayetteville, Ga. Ga. $250,000
18 546 Kris Bryant 3B Bonanza HS, Las Vegas Nev.
Bryant entered the summer with lofty expectations, but he often looked overmatched at the plate during the showcase circuit last summer. When he's on, he's a treat to watch. He has a lean, 6-foot-5, 195-pound frame and light-tower power that draws comparisons to a young Troy Glaus. The power, however, mostly shows up during batting practice or when he has a metal bat in his hands. There are a lot of moving parts to his swing and he has trouble barreling balls up with wood, so how much usable power he ends up having is a big question. He has a long, loopy swing and he never changes his approach when he's struggling. He's athletic for a big guy and may be able to handle third base. He has the arm for it, and some scouts said they wouldn't be shocked if he eventually ended up on the mound. Some scouts love Bryant's power enough to take him in the back half of the first round, while others turned him in as a token gesture and have little interest in him--especially for the price it will take to lure him away from his San Diego commitment.
19 576 Travis Garrett RHP Cypress (Calif.) JC Calif. $100,000
Cypress JC has its own power arm in Garrett, a 5-foot-11 dynamo who has dabbled in relief this season. A bit raw and unrefined, he has touched 93-94 mph with his fastball and struck out 34 in 32 innings.
20 606 Art Charles LHP Bakersfield (Calif.) JC Calif.
21 636 Chris Marlowe RHP Navarro (Texas) JC Texas
Marlowe may be just 6 feet and 175 pounds, but he has big-time arm speed. He routinely works at 91-93 mph, tops out at 94 and has a feel for spinning a hard curveball. Those two pitches have allowed him to overwhelm hitters this spring, as he led all juco pitchers by averaging 17.3 strikeouts per nine innings through mid-May. He originally arrived at Navarro as a shortstop, so he's still a work in progress on the mound. Though his delivery is relatively smooth, he battles his command at times. An Oklahoma State recruit, Marlowe will pitch in the Prospect League this summer if a team wants to get more looks at him.
22 666 Aaron Westlake OF Vanderbilt Tenn.
Westlake stepped in for Casali behind the plate in 2009 but is too big to catch every day. The Californian also has played in the outfield but looks like a better fit at first base, where he's an average fielder. He wavers from too passive to too aggressive at the plate, making him streaky. He has good raw power and led the Commodores with 12 home runs, half of them in conference play. His bat could sneak him into the 10th round.
23 696 Angel Gomez OF Maria Cruz Buitrago HS, San Lorenzo, P.R. P.R.
Angel Gomez is a strong, 6-foot-2, 170-pound switch-hitter with some power. He has played right field and third base, but profiles as a left fielder because he's not a standout runner or thrower. He has a slight uppercut to his swing and can get a little long, but the ball jumps off his bat when he makes contact.
24 726 Ronnie Melendez OF Cowley County (Kan.) CC Kan.
25 756 Brando Tessar RHP Chaminade HS, West Hills, Calif. Calif.
Brando Tessar of Chaminade Prep is a showcase regular with fine speed, clocking around 6.72 seconds in the 60. A multi-position player, his best spot may be in the outfield but his bat will need to improve. He and righthander Jimmy Sherfy are headed to Oregon.
26 786 Jay Johnson LHP Texas Tech Texas
Jay Johnson posted an 8.26 ERA with more walks than strikeouts (50-49 in 57 innings) in his first season at Texas Tech, and he has three elbow surgeries (Tommy John in 2004, cleanups in 2005 and 2008) on his medical history. But scouts still are interested in him because he's a lefthander with late armside run on a 91-95 mph fastball. Six-foot-1 and 214 pounds, he throws from a low arm slot and uses a sweeping slider as his second pitch. He agreed to terms with the Orioles as a 25th-round pick out of Lethbridge (Alberta) CC last year, but flunked his physical.
Johnson signed for a $20,000 bonus on July 1, but the Blue Jays later voided his contract.
27 816 Eric Arce C Lakeland (Fla.) HS Fla.
Scouts do agree that Seminoles signee Eric Arce is the top hitter of the bunch, with a polished approach and good plate discipline, allowing him to get to his solid raw power. Arce's a decent receiver, while his arm rates well-below-average. He's unlikely to catch as a pro, and scouts wonder what other position he could play. At 5-foot-11, 195 pounds, he's an unlikely fit for first base. The 18-year-old also was suspended after he was arrested in April on charges of lewd battery and lewd molestation, in connection with an incident involving an 14-year-old girl. He returned to action when prosecutors dropped the case. The whole package might lead him to Florida State, where he could hit in the middle of the lineup immediately.
28 846 Adaric Kelly RHP Trinity Christian Academy, Lake Worth, Fla. Fla. $250,000
29 876 Jonathan Jones OF Long Beach State Calif.
30 906 Steve McQuail 2B Canisius N.Y.
McQuail slugged his way onto scouts' radars last summer, when he led the Valley League in home runs. He followed it up with a stellar spring, hitting .409/.486/.781 with 19 homers, 21 doubles and 80 RBIs--all team bests. A bit undersized at 6-foot, 213 pounds, McQuail generates decent power with a righthanded uppercut swing. He has a bat wrap in his set-up and does not have a particularly loose swing. McQuail is a decent runner, but he's stiff defensively in the infield and projects as a corner outfielder. Scouts are skeptical that he'll hit enough at that position in pro ball.
31 936 Luis Benitez RHP Ashworth HS, Carolina, P.R. P.R.
Benitez is a third baseman and he prefers to be a position player, but scouts like his arm on the mound. He is also just an arm-strength guy at this point, and he can dial it up to 93 mph. His father Luis spent three years in the minor leagues, mostly with the Cubs.
32 966 Andy Fermin 2B Chipola (Fla.) JC Fla.
33 996 Melvin Garcia OF Monroe HS, New York N.Y.
34 1026 Tyler Powell RHP Belmont-Abbey (N.C.) N.C.
35 1056 Dan Barnes RHP Princeton N.J.
Righty Dan Barnes also has an outside chance to sneak into the top 10 rounds, though scouts have expressed reluctance to buy him out of his senior year at an Ivy League school. He did not exactly dominate against soft Ivy competition, either, going 1-3, 5.14 with 40 strikeouts and 19 walks in 49 innings. Generously listed at 6-foot-1, 195 pounds, Barnes is not physical, but he can run his fastball up to 93 mph with a bit of life, though it dips into the high 80s after a few innings. He leans heavily on his heater and has below-average secondary stuff, including a 75-78 mph curveball, a slurvy low-80s slider and a developing changeup. He sometimes struggles to repeat his arm slot, particularly as he gets tired, and he profiles as a reliever.
36 1086 David Whitehead RHP Moeller HS, Cincinnati Ohio
37 1116 Chad Green RHP Effingham (Ill.) HS Ill.
As an athletic 6-foot-4, 185-pound righthander who also starred in basketball, Green is reminiscent of Tanner Bushue, whom the Astros drafted in the second round last year out of a nearby high school. Green isn't as good as Bushue, but he'll show a low-90s fastball in the early innings of games. He lacks arm speed, so his ability to spin a curveball isn't great. He's more about projection than present value, and could blossom into an early-round pick if he attends Louisville.
38 1146 Pierce Rankin C Washington Wash.
39 1176 Nick Vander Tuig RHP Oakdale (Calif.) HS Calif.
Righthander Vander Tuig would have gotten first-round consideration had he not injured his elbow last spring throwing from right field in a high school game. He had Tommy John surgery, and for a club to sign him this June would take a leap of faith. Prior to the injury, the 6-foot-3, 190-pounder showed a fastball in the 90-93 mph range with good sink. His slider looked capable of being an above-average pitch, though it was inconsistent. Vander Tuig's arm speed and lean, strong body are both attractive attributes, but he'll probably head on to UCLA.
40 1206 Brandon Berl RHP St. Mary's Calif.
St. Mary's righthander Berl should be a good senior sign, with a fastball in the 88-92 mph range with two good breaking pitches, which fits a bullpen profile. He is a strike thrower with good makeup.
41 1236 Seth Conner 3B Logan-Rogersville HS, Rogersville, Mo. Mo. $100,000
42 1266 Drew Permison RHP Towson Md.
43 1296 Ron Schreurs LHP Freedom HS, Orlando Fla.
44 1326 Mott Hyde 2B Calhoun (Ga.) HS Ga.
Georgia Tech recruits Mott Hyde and Chris Triplett are middle infielders who potentially could team together for three years in the Yellow Jackets infield. Hyde's tools are all average or fringe-average aside from his throwing arm, which should allow him to stay at shortstop in college.
45 1356 Phil Diedrick OF Pickering HS, Ajax, Ont. Ontario
Outfielder Diedrick has strength from the left side of the plate, but really struggles with recognizing breaking balls and is a poor runner, limiting his profile.
46 1386 Connor Smith RHP Blessed Trinity SS, Grimsby, Ont. Ontario
47 1416 Gabriel Romero RHP Roosevelt HS, Los Angeles Calif.
48 1446 Nick Studer C St. Michael's College HS, Toronto Ontario
49 1476 Matt Abraham 2B Eckerd (Fla.) Fla.
50 1506 Kelly Norris-Jones C Lambrick Park SS, Victoria, B.C. British Columbia
