1 602 Pittsburgh Pirates Trea Turner SS Park Vista HS, Lake Worth, Fla. Fla.
2 603 Seattle Mariners Dillon Hazlett 2B Emporia State (Kan.) Kan.
Dillon Hazlett starred for two years at Allen County (Kan.) CC and hit .324 at North Carolina last season before transferring to Emporia State for his senior year. He batted .433, set a Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association record with a 32-game hitting streak and ranked among the NCAA Division II leaders in hits (93), doubles (25) and steals (43 in 45 attempts). A 6-foot-2, 180-pound righthanded hitter, he's a good athlete with plus speed and solid power and arm strength. He played infield for most of his college career but looked more comfortable after the Hornets moved him to center field.
3 604 Arizona Diamondbacks Tommy Williams SS Palm Beach Gardens (Fla.) HS Fla.
Williams has a good body and decent strength combined with a feel for hitting. He has the arm strength for the left side of the infield but is a tough profile defensively at the pro level.
4 605 Baltimore Orioles Marc Wik OF Chabot (Calif.) JC Calif.
5 606 Kansas City Royals Terrance Gore OF Gulf Coast (Fla.) CC Fla.
Terrance Gore is a 5-foot-7 freshman from Macon, Ga. whom one coach compared to Deion Sanders in terms of speed. Gore is listed at 170 pounds and has drawn comparisons to former Chipola JC outfielder Darren Ford as a right-right center fielder with minimal power. His arm is also well below-average, but Gore's top of the scale speed should get him drafted in the first 15 rounds.
6 607 Washington Nationals Josh Laxer RHP Madison (Miss.) Central HS Miss.
In many years, Mississippi signee Josh Laxer would have been the top prep pitcher in the state. At 6-foot-1, 190 pounds, he pounds the strike zone with quality stuff, touching the low 90s and sitting around 88-89 mph with a fastball that has good armside life and sink at times. He spots his slurvy breaking ball well and knows how to pitch. His lack of physicality may make college ball a better fit.
7 608 Cleveland Indians Dillon Peters LHP Cathedral HS, Indianapolis Ind.
Peters has moved to the head of the class of an interesting group of Indiana high school pitchers, but he probably won't be drafted as high as his stuff alone would merit. His body (listed at 5-foot-11 and 190 pounds, though scouts think he's a couple of inches shorter) and strong commitment to Texas are concerns, though his biggest supporters liken him to Robbie Ross, a Rangers second-round pick in 2008. Peters' fastball runs from 90-94 mph, his hard curveball gives him a solid No. 2 pitch and his changeup is more advanced than with most high schoolers. His mechanics have a lot of effort and not much deception. His control is inconsistent and he gets little extension in his delivery, leading some scouts to wonder about how effective his fastball will be against pro hitters. Peters may not sign for less than first-round money, so there's no telling where he might go in the draft.
8 609 Chicago Cubs Ben Klafczynski OF Kent State Ohio
Outfielder Ben Klafczynski is another solid senior sign for Kent State. He helped his cause by opening the season by going 7-for-13 with three straight multi-hit games against Georgia Tech's strong pitching staff. The 6-foot-3, 200-pound lefthanded hitter has been a starter for most of his four years with the Golden Flashes. While he's a good athlete, it doesn't quite translate to the diamond, where his tools are fringy to average across the board. A right fielder for Kent State, he may not provide enough offense to profile as a regular there in the major leagues.
9 610 Houston Astros Matt Duffy 3B Tennessee Tenn.
10 611 Milwaukee Brewers Brandon Williamson RHP Dallas Baptist Texas
11 612 New York Mets Mason Robbins OF George County HS, Lucedale, Miss. Miss.
It wouldn't surprise area scouts if someone jumped up and drafted outfielder Mason Robbins or hard-throwing Brandon Woodruff in the first five rounds. Robbins is part of Southern Miss' excellent recruiting class and has a smooth, balanced lefthanded swing to go with a polished approach. He's a lefthanded thrower as well, and he'll be a two-way player if he makes it to Hattiesburg. He's an average runner who profiles as a center fielder in college, but pro scouts see him more as a corner bat. At 6 feet, 200 pounds, he's maxed out physically, so deciding whether he has enough power to profile there is the key for scouts and the crosscheckers who were rushing in to see Robbins in May. He hit just three home runs in 2010, but finished second in the home run derby at the Under Armour game in Chicago last summer and led the state with 14 homers this spring.
12 613 Florida Marlins Devon Reed SS Milford (Del.) HS Del.
13 614 Los Angeles Dodgers Vince Spilker RHP Johnson County (Kan.) CC Kan.
Jeff Soptic wasn't the only pitcher drawing scouts to Johnson County CC. Vince Spilker doesn't hit 100 mph like Soptic can, but he's a more well-rounded pitcher. He has gotten into better shape in two years of junior college, and the 6-foot-4, 220-pound righthander now works with a 90-94 mph fastball with armside run. He also throws a hard slider, and his curveball and changeup have potential as well. There is some effort to his delivery, which detracts from his control. The Rays drafted Spilker in the 49th round two years ago out of a Missouri high school.
14 615 Los Angeles Angels Junior Carlin LHP South Florida Fla.
15 616 Oakland Athletics Kurt Wunderlich RHP Michigan State Mich.
Kurt Wunderlich was named Big Ten pitcher of the year after going 10-2, 3.19. The 6-foot-2, 215-pounder is a finesse righthander who throws three pitches for strikes: an 87-89 mph sinker that peaks at 91, a good changeup and a little slider. He showed more velocity when the Spartans used him as a reliever two years ago, and that could be his role in pro ball.
16 617 Detroit Tigers Tyler Barrett LHP Lewis-Clark State (Idaho) Idaho
17 618 Colorado Rockies Dan Winkler RHP Central Florida Fla.
Danny Winkler is a 6-foot-3, 200-pounder with a solid-average fastball and a slider that at times is a swing-and-miss pitch.
18 619 Toronto Blue Jays Joel Seddon RHP St. Clair (Mich.) HS Mich.
Righthander Joel Seddon is Michigan's top high school prospect, but scouts believe he'd be better off attending South Carolina than turning pro out of high school. He already throws 86-90 mph and touches 91, and he has more projection than most 6-footers because he can add strength to his 170-pound frame. He flashes a good curveball and has more feel for pitching than most high schoolers. There's some effort in his delivery, but he's also athletic and has a quick arm. The Gamecocks may give him a chance as a two-way player, though his pro future is on the mound.
19 620 St. Louis Cardinals Aramis Garcia C Pembroke Pines (Fla.) HS Fla.
Florida's catchers got plenty of attention, and beyond the top group some evaluators preferred Aramis Garcia, a Florida International signee. Garcia resembles 2009 supplemental first-rounder Steve Baron, who was a premium defender. He has more power potential than Baron but lacks fluid actions behind the plate. His bat may have to carry him if the 6-foot-2, 190-pounder outgrows catching.
20 621 Chicago White Sox Martin Medina C Cal State Bakersfield Calif.
21 622 Boston Red Sox Zach Good LHP Grayson County (Texas) CC Texas $140,000
Grayson County's best pitching prospect, lefthander Zach Good, threw eight shutout innings to beat McLennan 1-0 in the second round of the regionals. Long and lean at 6-foot-4 and 185 pounds, he has bounced back from Tommy John surgery in high school to show a 90-91 mph fastball and feel for a curveball. His command is still a work in progress.
22 623 San Diego Padres Chris Haney RHP Dallas Baptist Texas
23 624 Texas Rangers Nick Vickerson SS Mississippi State Miss.
24 625 Cincinnati Reds Dan Jensen RHP Cincinnati Ohio
25 626 Atlanta Braves Carlos Rodriguez LHP Iolani HS, Honolulu Hawaii
Rodriguez has a good pitcher's frame at 6-foot-3 and 195 pounds. He scraped 91 mph with his fastball last fall, and settled back into the 86-87 mph range this spring. He mixes in a firm changeup and slurvy breaking ball, but his frame and effortless delivery indicate there could be more to come. He is expected to end up at Oregon State.
26 627 San Francisco Giants Mitchell Beacom LHP UCLA Calif.
UCLA lefthander Mitchell Beacom has a future in pro ball as a left-on-left specialist, though his stuff is underwhelming. His funky delivery and sidearm slot give him deception, and his 85-88 mph fastball has some sink and run. He also uses a Frisbee slider that is adequate against lefthanders. He needs to develop a viable changeup if he is to succeed against righthanded hitters in pro ball.
27 628 Minnesota Twins Brian Anderson SS Deer Creek HS, Edmond, Okla. Okla.
Anderson is the best prep position player in Oklahoma, a 6-foot-3, 175-pound athlete with the actions and above-average arm to stay at shortstop. He runs well and could grow into righthanded power potential once he adds strength.
28 629 New York Yankees Daniel Camarena LHP Cathedral Catholic HS, San Diego Calif. $335,000
Camarena has performed as well as any prep player in Southern California this spring. If you throw out his lone loss of the season (when he walked four in three innings), Camarena issued just two walks in 49 innings this spring while striking out 76, illustrating his superb feel for pitching and ability to carve up the strike zone. Camarena's fastball ranged from 85-88 mph last year, and he sat at 87-88 in the MLB Urban Invitational in February. But he worked hard to add strength and his velocity jumped a tick this spring, ranging from 87-91. Though his arm action is clean, his 6-foot-1, 205-pound frame lacks projection. He makes up for it with his polish and command. Camarena has excellent feel for his changeup, which some scouts rate as an average pitch, but he rarely needed to use it at the high school level. His curveball has good depth and projects as a solid-average pitch, as he already flashes a big league breaking ball sometimes. Most scouts see Camarena's future on the mound, but he could be a standout two-way player if he honors his commitment to San Diego, and he has pro talent as a hitter as well. Camarena has a smooth, balanced lefthanded swing with some looseness to it and a gap-to-gap approach. He's an adequate runner who would fit at a corner defensively.
29 630 Tampa Bay Rays Garret Smith SS Boston College Mass.
Garrett Smith played shortstop in his first two years at Boston College, but moved to catcher as a junior and profiles best as a reliever in the pros. As the Eagles' closer, Smith lit up radar guns with his lively mid-90s fastball from the right side. He also has a sharp, late-breaking curveball. Smith should get taken late, but one talent evaluator said it wouldn't surprise him if he pitches in the big leagues.
30 631 Philadelphia Phillies Peter Lavin OF San Francisco Calif.
