1 6 Washington Nationals Anthony Rendon Rice Texas $6,000,000
Rendon entered the season as the draft's top-rated prospect and still sits atop our rankings, but his season hasn't gone as planned. After hitting a combined .391/.497/.750 with 46 homers as BA's Freshman of the Year in 2009 and College Player of the Year in 2010, Rendon hit .323/.526/.516 with five homers in the regular season this spring. He strained his throwing shoulder in the second week of the season and has played little in the field. Rendon hadn't given teams any medical information as of mid-May, leaving them in the dark about the severity of the injury. Though it has affected his swing and bat speed, he's still the best all-around hitter in the draft. The 6-foot, 190-pounder has tremendous strength in his hands and wrists, uncanny hand-eye coordination and exceptional strike-zone discipline. Teams have pitched around him all season, and he was the runaway NCAA Division I leader with 66 walks. His bat speed and ability to barrel balls give Rendon more usable power than any player in the draft, with scouts projecting the righthanded hitter to bat .300 with 25-30 homers a year in the major leagues. When healthy, Rendon is a gifted third baseman with above-average range and arm strength. He has drawn comparisons to Evan Longoria and Ryan Zimmerman, though he bears a closer physical resemblance to David Wright. Rendon tore ligaments in his right ankle in the 2009 NCAA regionals and broke the same ankle on a slide with Team USA last summer, but he has been running and moving as well as ever this spring. He has average speed and runs the bases well. Both ankle injuries came on fluke plays, so scouts don't consider him injury-prone. As frustrating as his season has been, Rendon remains a strong candidate to go No. 1 overall. If Pittsburgh goes in another direction, it's unlikely the Mariners would pass on him at No. 2.
1s 41 Tampa Bay Rays Tyler Goeddel St. Francis HS, Mountain View, Calif. Calif. $1,500,000
Goeddel's father, David, is a pioneer in the biotechnology industry and helped develop synthetic insulin and human growth hormone. His brother, Erik, is a pitcher in the Mets organization, drafted out of UCLA last year. Tyler has a gangly and projectable 6-foot-4, 170-pound frame. He's also a well above-average runner, athletic enough to play third base, though his speed may be best utilized in center field. Goeddel has above-average arm strength and shows intriguing tools at the plate. He takes aggressive swings with bat speed, and his bat head stays in the hitting zone for a long time. Scouts have to project on Goeddel's power, but it's not hard to envision him hitting for at least average power as he adds muscle to his frame. Goeddel missed time this season with mononucleosis, but he still has the track record and skill set to be a premium pick.
1s 50 Minnesota Twins Travis Harrison Tustin (Calif.) HS Calif. $1,050,000
Harrison established himself as one of the top power hitters in Southern California early, homering off future Rockies first-rounder Tyler Matzek with a wood bat as a freshman in scout ball. He easily rates as the region's best high school bat this year. Harrison has a physical 6-foot-2, 215-pound frame and above-average righthanded power potential. Some scouts think he could be an above-average hitter, too, if he does a better job protecting the outer half and adjusting to breaking balls. He can make loud contact, but he centers balls on the barrel inconsistently, and other scouts see him as just an average hitter. It's unclear where he'll play on the diamond. His arm has improved to the point that some scouts now consider it average, but his actions at third base are stiff and his range and footwork are fringy. He'll get a chance to stay at the hot corner, however, before falling back to first. He's a below-average runner with solid instincts on the basepaths. Harrison plays hard and loves to compete, and scouts expect a club to buy him out of his commitment to Southern California.
2 64 Baltimore Orioles Jason Esposito Vanderbilt Tenn. $600,000
The Royals drafted Esposito in the seventh round out of high school in 2008, but he turned down a reported $1.5 million offer to attend Vanderbilt. He may not get that much this time around, but he'll be close. He got hot offensively this spring at the right time, hitting .376 in SEC play. Esposito is a college version of Marlins prospect Matt Dominguez in that his glove is ahead of his bat. He played some shortstop this spring but is an above-average defender at third with good hands and plus arm strength. Offensively, he has backed up a bit. An average runner with good instincts, he has been less proficient on the bases this year (11 SB, 10 CS) after going 51-for-60 his first two seasons, and stolen bases won't be a significant part of his game as a pro. He has struggled against velocity at times and lost his rhythm, which tends to happen with players with a big leg kick. Some scouts wonder if he's a natural hitter and believe he'll wind up as a utility player, with his glove as his calling card.
2 73 Los Angeles Dodgers Alex Santana Mariner HS, Cape Coral, Fla. Fla. $499,500
Santana, the son of ex-big leaguer Rafael Santana, has a big body at 6-foot-4, 195 pounds and may outgrow shortstop. He definitely has the hands and footwork to have a chance to handle third base, however, and as a projectable, athletic frame. With more strength, Santana's bat could provide the power to profile at third base. He has solid bat speed but may needs some tweaks to his swing path to project to hit for more power. He's an average runner at best and speed doesn't figure to be part of his game.
2 90 Philadelphia Phillies Harold Martinez Miami Fla. $387,000
Miami's top prospect entering the year was supposed to be third baseman Harold Martinez, who also was highly touted entering his senior year in high school. He has a long performance track record that included two USA Baseball stints. He had a modest senior high school season and wound up at Miami, and he seems to be following a similar path this year. He hit 21 homers as a sophomore to lead the Atlantic Coast Conference. The less-potent bats at the college level this season have affected Martinez, though, and he had as many sacrifice hits (10) as extra-base hits through 53 games. He has timing issues at the plate and doesn't recognize pitches well, and he has yet to hit .300 at the college level. He has raw power but doesn't make consistent enough contact to bring it out. Martinez is a solid athlete who can handle third base defensively, with plenty of arm strength. He has filled in at shortstop when needed and has played some first base. He runs well enough to handle a corner outfield spot. His best-case scenario as a pro could be as a utility player thanks to his glove.
3 105 Oakland Athletics B.A. Vollmuth Southern Mississippi Miss. $304,200
Vollmuth hit all of three home runs as a high school senior, so Southern Mississippi coaches were surprised when he stepped in as a freshman for injured team leader Brian Dozier and hit eight home runs in just 97 at-bats. He helped lead the Golden Eagles to their first College World Series bid, then bashed 20 homers as a sophomore. Vollmuth has battled the new bats and a hip injury in 2011, and moved off shortstop to the less-demanding third base. At 6-foot-4 and a listed 200 pounds, he may wind up outgrowing third and moving to a corner outfield spot--or first base if his below-average speed further deteriorates. With an accurate, above-average arm, that would waste of one of his better tools. Vollmuth still has looseness in his swing, and he has tremendous leverage. He's always going to swing and miss, but instincts and savvy have helped him improve his hitting ability over his college career. He has toned down an exaggerated leg kick, and while he remains streaky, he has gained consistency.
3 115 Atlanta Braves Kyle Kubitza Texas State Texas $261,000
His brother Austin was a seventh-round pick by the Pirates last year, and Kyle Kubitza should go in the same range this June. (Austin decided to attend Rice, where he has been the Owls' best pitcher as a freshman, and projects a possible first-rounder in 2013.) As a 6-foot-4, 190-pound lefthanded hitter with strength and athleticism, Kyle profiles well at third base. He offers power and patience at the plate, but scouts would like to see him maintain a consistent set-up rather than tinkering with his hitting mechanics. Likewise, they'd like to see more reliable defense at third base, where he made 22 errors in 55 regular-season games. He has the hands, arm and agility to play the hot corner if he can maintain his concentration.
4 137 Detroit Tigers Jason King Kansas State Kan. $195,300
After missing 2010 while recovering from Tommy John surgery, Jason King returned to bat .326 with 10 homers and 16 steals this spring. The 6-foot, 213-pounder offers plus power potential from both sides of the plate. Though some scouts wonder if he can stick at third base, he's a good athlete with the speed and arm strength to handle right field if needed. A fourth-year junior, he plays with his younger brother Jared at Kansas State.
4 149 New York Yankees Matt Duran New Rochelle (N.Y.) HS N.Y. $335,000
Duran, who just turned 18 in early May, generates plus raw power from his 6-foot-1, 220-pound build. He has a long swing and can drive the ball to all fields, but he sells out for home runs, and his power is his only plus tool. A third baseman for Hank's Yanks, a team sponsored by Yankees owner Hank Steinbrenner that also featured potential top-round pick Williams Jerez, Duran profiles better at first base in the future. He's limited defensively and has a fringe-average arm.
4 150 Tampa Bay Rays Riccio Torrez Arizona State Ariz. $180,000
Third baseman Riccio Torrez leapfrogged a couple of his more touted Arizona State teammates and will likely be drafted in the first 10 rounds, though he doesn't have standout tools. He won over scouts because he can do a little bit of everything and has a long track record of performance. Torrez has a line drive swing, with the chance for more power down the road. He profiles best at third base, or could wind up being a utility player because he's agile enough to play second base or shortstop in a pinch. Some scouts would like to try him out behind the plate. Torrez is a grinder who practices as hard as he plays and will be a favorite of managers in the pro ranks.
4 151 Philadelphia Phillies Cody Asche Nebraska Neb. $168,300
While many college hitters have had trouble adjusting to less lively bats this spring, Asche has thrived. After totaling 19 doubles and 12 homers in his first two years at Nebraska, he drilled 27 and 12 during the 2011 regular season. His season almost was derailed before it started, as he missed fall practice with stretched ligaments in the arch of his foot, but the injury responded to rest and rehabilitation. Asche's best tool is his lefthanded power, which rates a 55 or 60 on the 20-80 scouting scale. He has good hand-eye coordination and a sound approach, so he should hit for a solid average as well. Six-foot-2 and 198 pounds, Asche is a decent runner once he gets going. He also has average arm strength, but lacks soft hands and quick feet, so he'll probably have to move off third base in pro ball. He's athletic enough to try the outfield, and some scouts wonder if his tools might translate well behind the plate.
5 157 Washington Nationals Matt Skole Georgia Tech Ga. $161,100
Hulking third baseman Matt Skole nearly made BA's Top 200, but a power slump pushed him off the list. He didn't homer in Atlantic Coast Conference play until the season's penultimate series, against North Carolina. Skole comes from a baseball family, as his grandfather played professionally. His father played at Georgia Southern, while his uncle Tony coaches East Tennessee State, and most famously, his younger brother Jake was a first-round pick of the Rangers in 2010. Matt Skole was one of the few veterans in a young Georgia Tech lineup and was pitched around all season. After hitting 37 home runs his first two seasons, Skole was down to nine in 2011. Still, he has plus raw power from the left side, has trimmed up his body over the last three seasons and has a polished offensive approach, drawing more walks than strikeouts the last two seasons. He's competent at third base but fits better at first base as a pro, which will require more offense. A February charge of driving under the influence hasn't soured scouts on his makeup.
5 180 Tampa Bay Rays J.D. Davis Elk Grove (Calif.) HS Calif.
At 6-foot-3 and 220 pounds, third baseman J.D. Davis is a good hitter with a lot of strength and above-average power. His swing is more about strength than pure bat speed, which concerns some scouts. He also has a stocky body with a thick lower half and will have to watch his conditioning as he gets older. He is already seen as a baseclogger. Davis also pitches and has been up to 93 mph off the mound, with a curveball and a changeup. His arm strength and body type make scouts think he might be worth trying at catcher. Davis is committed to Cal State Fullerton.
6 182 Pittsburgh Pirates Daniel Gamache Auburn Ala. $125,000
Gamache had a hand injury late in the season that required surgery and ended his year early. He hit just .265 in Southeastern Conference play but has solid athleticism and is willing to take a walk. Gamache has good enough hands and arm strength to stay at third base.
6 185 Baltimore Orioles Nick Delmonico Farragut HS, Knoxville Tenn. $1,525,000
Delmonico comes from a baseball family. His father Rod was Tennessee's head coach for 18 seasons until 2007, and his brother Tony hit .374 for Florida State's 2008 College World Series team before embarking on a pro career with the Dodgers. Tony moved to catcher as a pro, and Nicky also has a chance to catch. Scouts aren't completely sold on his defensive ability, but he has the body and arm strength for the position. Delmonico is maxed out physically at 6-foot-3, 215 pounds and is 19 years old. He had a tough spring, hitting six home runs but disappointing scouts with his lack of impact offensively. His value is in his bat, and his swing has become more stiff in the last year, perhaps as a result of a nagging back injury he had from lifting weights. Some scouts consider his swing mechanical, while others believe he just lost bat speed due to draft pressure and trying too hard. Those who believe in Delmonico believe his above-average instincts, plus arm and adequate receiving skills will keep him behind the plate, making him an above-average offensive player for the position if his bat bounces back. He's signed to Georgia.
6 205 Cincinnati Reds Sean Buckley St. Petersburg (Fla.) JC Fla. $125,000
The son of Reds scouting director Chris Buckley, Sean has interesting righthanded power and a chance to stay at third base, though he may be a better fit in right field. He has present strength and an average to plus throwing arm, and he also could go out in the first 15 rounds.
7 213 Seattle Mariners Steve Proscia Virginia Va. $160,000
Proscia attended New Jersey's Don Bosco Prep for high school, when he was a third baseman on a team that finished No. 2 in the country in 2008, as well as a wide receiver and defensive back for the nationally ranked football team. At 6-foot-2, 230 pounds, he is a physical athlete. He doesn't move well laterally but has a chance to stay at third base thanks to a strong arm, soft hands and ability to come in on balls. He can handle the bat, though sometimes he swings too much with his upper body and shoulders rather than letting his hands work. He has solid power, tying teammate John Hicks with five home runs for the team lead in Virginia's expansive ballpark.
9 278 Cleveland Indians Jordan Smith St. Cloud State (Minn.) Minn. $125,000
Third baseman Jordan Smith has hit .420/.480/.722 in two seasons at St. Cloud State, an NCAA Division II program. He has a big league body (6-foot-4, 210 pounds) and plenty of strength in his lefthanded stroke, though scouts think his swing is long and wonder if he'll catch up to good velocity. After a good summer in the Northwoods League in 2010, he'll try to prove himself against even tougher competition in the Cape Cod League this year. An outfielder as a freshman, Smith moved to third base this spring but may lack the first-step quickness to play there in pro ball. He has solid arm strength and instincts, but below-average speed. He's a draft-eligible sophomore.
9 292 Boston Red Sox Travis Shaw Kent State Ohio $110,000
Travis Shaw has the size (6-foot-4, 215 pounds) and lefthanded power that scouts want in a third baseman, plus good bloodlines. His father Jeff made two all-star teams and saved 203 games in a 12-year major league career. He gets pull-happy and doesn't always catch up to quality fastballs, so how much he'll hit in pro ball remains in question. To his credit, he batted a solid .260/.378/.402 in the Cape Cod League last summer. Though Shaw has the hands and arm strength for the hot corner, he lacks quickness and agility, so he'll probably have to move to first base as a pro.
12 375 Los Angeles Angels Joe Krehbiel Seminole (Fla.) HS Fla. $125,000
13 406 Oakland Athletics Jacob Tanis Mercer Ga.
Mercer's top draft pick will be third baseman Jacob Tanis, who is slow afoot but otherwise has solid-average tools. Tanis has a feel for hitting and produces good bat speed and power from the right side. He was much more patient in 2011 (35 walks after 15 last season) and maintained his power production despite the bat change, belting 15 home runs. He may lack the quick feet for third base and profiles better behind the plate at 6-foot-1, 195 pounds. He wasn't picked as a draft-eligible sophomore a year ago.
13 409 Toronto Blue Jays Matt Dean The Colony (Texas) HS Texas $737,500
Dean wasn't at his best on the showcase circuit last summer, but he redeemed himself with a strong spring and established himself as the best prep third-base prospect in the draft. Few high school players can match his batting-practice fireworks. With his bat speed, the loft in his righthanded swing and the room to add strength to his 6-foot-2, 190-pound frame, he projects to have plus power while hitting for a solid average. Dean has average speed but figures to lose a step as he fills out. He gets the job done at shortstop and has an above-average arm, but he'll move to the hot corner after he either turns pro or attends Texas. As with most coaches' sons--he plays for his father Martin at The Colony HS--Dean earns praise for his work ethic and competitiveness. His strong commitment to the Longhorns may make him difficult to sign.
14 425 Baltimore Orioles K.J. Hockaday Carroll School, Bel Air, Md. Md.
Third baseman K.J. Hockdaday has a big frame at 6-foot-3, 215 pounds. He profiles as a corner guy with a little power and good athleticism.
14 441 Chicago White Sox Mark Ginther Oklahoma State Okla.
Mark Ginther has the size (6-foot-3, 202 pounds), athleticism, righthanded power and arm strength that scouts want in a third baseman. He looked like a potential top-three-rounds pick when he came out of Jenks High--where he quarterbacked the football team to two Oklahoma 6-A championships--but he has been too aggressive and inconsistent at the plate. He hurt his cause by hitting .215/.266/.323 with wood bats in the Cape Cod League last summer. He has improved defensively in just his second season at the hot corner.
14 447 San Francisco Giants Garrett Buechele Oklahoma Okla.
Buechele originally signed with Kansas, but changed his mind after the Jayhawks wanted to convert him into a catcher. After transferring to Oklahoma and sitting out 2008 in accordance with NCAA transfer rules, he has been one of the Sooners' best hitters for the last three years. The 6-foot, 205-pounder makes consistent contact, uses the whole field and has average power from the right side of the plate. He's a cerebral hitter with a good approach, no surprise considering that his father Steve played 11 years in the big leagues. While Buechele has good hands and instincts at third base, his arm is just decent and his speed is well below-average. He doesn't profile well defensively at any position, which detracts from his bat and his bloodlines. The Rangers drafted him in the 18th round a year ago, when he was a redshirt sophomore.
14 451 Philadelphia Phillies Trey Ford South Mountain (Ariz.) CC Ariz.
South Mountain shortstop Trey Ford has an athletic, 6-foot-3, 180-pound frame. He's a bit of a tweener because he doesn't have the range to stay at shortstop or the power to profile at third base, but he shows above-average speed and arm strength and plays hard.
17 516 Kansas City Royals Nick Cuckovich Riverside (Calif.) CC Calif.
17 524 Los Angeles Dodgers Jesus Valdez Oxnard (Calif.) JC Calif.
An unsigned fifth-round pick of the Angels out of high school last year, Valdez had committed to Arizona but wound up at Oxnard instead. His stock has held steady after a year of junior-college ball, and he figures to be drafted in the same range this year. He has made strides throwing quality strikes, and his breaking ball has improved. He threw a loopy curveball a year ago, but now he's throwing a slider. His fastball is his bread and butter, sitting at 90-92 and peaking at 94. He dabbles with a changeup, but it is still in its nascent stages. Valdez has a quick arm and a loose, wiry 6-foot-3, 180-pound frame. Scouts would like to see him develop a more aggressive approach on the mound, and they question his work ethic and intensity. He has the arm strength to reach the big leagues, but his current repertoire suggests he'll be a reliever in pro ball.
18 545 Baltimore Orioles Brad Roney Wetumpka (Ala.) HS Ala.
Two other hitters who could get picked include Golden's teammate, third baseman Brad Roney, and outfielder Jo-El Bennett. Roney is part of a strong Southern Mississippi recruiting class. He's a solid athlete who has present strength and hitting skills, and his above-average arm and agility should allow him to step in and play third as a freshman in Conference USA. He's raw at the plate but has excellent leverage in his swing and plus raw power. As Roney fills out his 6-foot-2, 190-pound frame, he may lose athleticism and get too stiff.
18 557 Detroit Tigers Brett Harrison Green Valley HS, Henderson, Nev. Nev. $125,000
18 571 Philadelphia Phillies Drew Hillman UC Irvine Calif.
Scouts heap praise on the UC Irvine coaching staff to get the most out of its players, and the Anteaters are loaded with quality college players who project as organizational players in pro ball: third baseman/righthander Brian Hernandez, outfielders Drew Hillman and Sean Madigan and catcher Ronnie Shaeffer.
20 610 Houston Astros Matt Duffy Tennessee Tenn.
21 660 Tampa Bay Rays Ryan Terry Monmouth N.J.
23 694 Arizona Diamondbacks Ryan Court Illinois State Ill.
A former walk-on, third baseman Ryan Court hasn't missed a start in three years for Illinois State. He has a big league body (6-foot-3, 225 pounds) and put up the best numbers of his career this spring despite the less-potent bats, hitting .323/.460/.533. He has raw righthanded power, arm strength and soft hands, so a conversion to catcher could be in order. A fifth-year senior, he's already 23.
23 717 San Francisco Giants Jonathan Jones Vanier (Que.) JC Quebec
24 728 Cleveland Indians Taylor Sparks St. John Bosco HS, Bellflower, Calif. Calif.
Sparks' father Don played for coach Dave Snow at Loyola Marymount and was a fifth-round pick of the Yankees in 1988 who played nine seasons as a corner infielder in pro ball. Sparks was a standout wide receiver for the St. John Bosco football team before focusing on baseball in 2010, when he stood out at the Area Code Games along with Bosco teammate Dante Flores. Sparks played an able shortstop this spring, demonstrating soft hands, quick feet and a quick release, but his range is limited and he profiles better as a third baseman as he grows into his 6-foot-3, 200-pound frame. He has average arm strength but below-average accuracy. He's an outstanding, physical athlete with average speed under way. Sparks takes a "major league batting practice," as one scout put it, flashing plus raw power, but it doesn't yet translate to games. Early in the spring, his stance was upright and his swing had plenty of holes, but he made an adjustment midway through the year, spreading out his lower half and flattening his stroke. His performance this spring has not matched his tools, and scouts seem content to let him go to UC Irvine and refine his game. He's a good student and is considered a tough sign.
24 735 Los Angeles Angels Jarrod Parks Mississippi State Miss.
25 756 Kansas City Royals Mark Threlkeld Louisiana Tech La.
26 783 Seattle Mariners Kenny Straus Georgia Perimeter JC Ga.
26 793 Florida Marlins Ryan Goetz UC Riverside Calif.
26 801 Chicago White Sox Grant Buckner West Virginia W.Va.
27 825 Los Angeles Angels Brian Hernandez UC Irvine Calif.
Scouts heap praise on the UC Irvine coaching staff to get the most out of its players, and the Anteaters are loaded with quality college players who project as organizational players in pro ball: third baseman/righthander Brian Hernandez, outfielders Drew Hillman and Sean Madigan and catcher Ronnie Shaeffer.
27 828 Colorado Rockies Matt Argyropoulos Washington State Wash.
29 874 Arizona Diamondbacks Carter Bell Oregon State Ore.
29 879 Chicago Cubs Drew Weeks Clay HS, Green Cove Springs, Fla. Fla.
30 910 Houston Astros Jordan Steranka Penn State Pa.
Scouts may find power in the bat of Jordan Steranka.
30 911 Milwaukee Brewers Trent Boras JSerra HS, San Juan Capistrano, Calif. Calif.
30 922 Boston Red Sox Nick Moore Brookwood HS, Snellville, Ga. Ga. $200,000
Moore was high school teammates with Cubs 13th-round pick Trey Martin, and both were committed to Kennesaw State before signing pro contracts. Moore is an above-average, but raw, athlete that was offered a scholarship to play defensive back at Air Force. He's a fringe-average runner, but his best attributes are his physical build and his big raw power from both sides of the plate. Moore is the Godson of his signing scout, Rob English.
30 925 Cincinnati Reds Joe Terry Cal State Fullerton Calif.
31 943 Florida Marlins Kenny Jackson Texas A&M Texas
31 954 Texas Rangers Matt Leeds College of Charleston S.C.
The Cougars' top player the last two seasons, third baseman Matt Leeds, hit 18 homers this season even with the new bats, though Charleston's bandbox ballpark takes some of the shine off that. He's a switch-hitter and a fair athlete who already has graduated with honors as a fourth-year junior. He's an aggressive hitter who strikes out a lot.
33 992 Pittsburgh Pirates Chris Lashmet Northwestern Ill.
33 1016 Atlanta Braves Nick Popescu Texas Tech Texas
36 1089 Chicago Cubs Travis Garcia Martin Methodist (Tenn.) Tenn.
36 1093 Florida Marlins Damek Tomscha Iowa Western CC Iowa
Third baseman Damek Tomscha was the most dangerous hitter on an Iowa Western CC team that returned to Grand Junction to defend its 2010 national championship. A freshman drafted in the 50th round by the Phillies a year ago, he's a physical 6-foot-3, 223-pounder with lots of raw righthanded power. His swing is long, and he has yet to prove he can hit quality breaking balls. He moves well at third base, and scouts are intrigued by his potential as a pitcher after clocking him at 95 mph throwing across the infield during fall practice. Tomscha prefers to hit and didn't take the mound this spring.
37 1124 Los Angeles Dodgers Reid Redman Texas Tech Texas
37 1126 Oakland Athletics Eric Wood Oshawa, Ontario (No school) Ontario
38 1160 St. Louis Cardinals Jeremy Patton Florida International Fla.
40 1216 Oakland Athletics Nic Coffman Wilson HS, Portland, Ore. Ore.
40 1223 San Diego Padres Taylor Murphy Torrey Pines HS, San Diego Calif.
40 1225 Cincinnati Reds Sam Travis Providence Catholic HS, New Lenox, Ill. Ill.
40 1226 Atlanta Braves Jacoby Almaraz San Jacinto (Texas) JC Texas
41 1237 Washington Nationals Bryce Ortega Arizona Ariz.
41 1241 Milwaukee Brewers Jalen Harris Lambrick Park SS, Victoria, B.C. British Columbia
42 1264 Arizona Diamondbacks Tyler Bream Liberty Va.
Third baseman Tyler Bream impressed at the plate in 2010, hitting .357/.393/.546 with 22 doubles and nine home runs in 269 at-bats. Whether it's the less lively bats or just draftitis, he batted .252/.291/.332 in 226 at-bats this season, with three home runs and nine doubles. Tyler is the son of former major leaguer Sid Bream, so some teams may bet on the pedigree and hope things will click in pro ball. But his performance this season may mean he'll be back for his senior year.
42 1275 Los Angeles Angels Jason Nappi Harding (Ark.) Ark.
42 1282 Boston Red Sox Derek O'Dell Canyon (Texas) HS Texas
44 1322 Pittsburgh Pirates Bobby LeCount Edmonds (Wash.) CC Wash.
44 1324 Arizona Diamondbacks Derek Luciano Central Florida Fla.
44 1327 Washington Nationals Matt Snyder Mississippi Miss.
Six-foot-6 giant Matt Snyder also was well regarded when he entered Ole Miss and wound up as the team's leading home run hitter with nine this season. He's better suited for DH duty or first base.
45 1369 Toronto Blue Jays Johnny Coy Wichita State Kan.
