1 902 Pittsburgh Pirates Matt Benedict RHP Western Carolina N.C.
2 903 Seattle Mariners Jordan Pries RHP Stanford Calif.
3 904 Arizona Diamondbacks Dexter Price RHP South Carolina-Beaufort S.C.
4 905 Baltimore Orioles Mikey Reynolds SS Paradise Valley (Ariz.) CC Ariz.
5 906 Kansas City Royals Christian Binford RHP Mercersburg (Pa.) Academy Pa. $575,000
Originally from Hagerstown, Md., Binford is a 6-foot-7 righthander who was committed to Virginia. He's already had Tommy John surgery when he was a sophomore in high school. He attended a private school in Pennsylvanio and didn't pitch much as a junior as he recovered, but was heavily recruited thanks to his big 6-foot-7, 225-pound frame. His fastball has touched 93 mph at its best and sits around 90, and he also throws a slider and a changeup. He went 9-2, 0.57 with 83 strikeouts and just seven walks as a prep senior in 61 innings
6 907 Washington Nationals Bryan Harper LHP South Carolina S.C.
The state has a notable older brother, too: lefthander Bryan Harper is the older brother of Nationals prospect Bryce Harper.
7 908 Cleveland Indians John Polonius SS Genesee (N.Y.) CC N.Y.
8 909 Chicago Cubs Arturo Maltos-Garcia RHP Lamar (Colo.) CC Colo.
Righthander Arturo Maltos-Garcia was sailing along this season, going 11-1, 2.11 with 139 strikeouts (and 64 walks) over 94 innings. His fastball sits in the 90-92 mph range and he has the best curveball in the Four Corners, a true 12-to-6 hammer. But he walked off the mound in the juco playoffs with an arm injury, which probably squashed his draft chances. He'll likely head to New Mexico next season.
9 910 Houston Astros Jordan Steranka 3B Penn State Pa.
Scouts may find power in the bat of Jordan Steranka.
10 911 Milwaukee Brewers Trent Boras 3B JSerra HS, San Juan Capistrano, Calif. Calif.
11 912 New York Mets Jake Hansen LHP Walshe HS, Fort Macleod, Alb. Alberta
12 913 Florida Marlins Jose Behar C Florida International Fla.
13 914 Los Angeles Dodgers Adam McConnell SS Richmond Va.
14 915 Los Angeles Angels Mike Papi OF Tunkhannock (Pa.) Area HS Pa.
Mike Papi plays shortstop for his high school team but profiles as an outfielder in pro ball. He is a 6-foot-2, 190-pound grinder who bats left and throws right. He has a strong arm that some call above-average and can touch 90 off the mound. He is solid at the plate, an average hitter with average power. A strong spring performance had scouts going back to see more of Papi late in the season, as they try to assess whether he's worth buying out of Virginia.
15 916 Oakland Athletics Nathan Kilcrease RHP Alabama Ala.
After Adam Morgan, Alabama may not have another player picked in the first 10 rounds. The Crimson Tide scrapped its way to a regional berth nonetheless behind 5-foot-6 righthander Nathan Kilcrease, who spins a good breaking ball.
16 917 Detroit Tigers Greg Milhorn RHP Arkansas HS, Texarkana, Ark. Ark.
17 918 Colorado Rockies John Curtiss RHP Carroll HS, Southlake, Texas Texas
Best known as a football power that has produced a half-dozen NFL players, Carroll High also has had four pitchers drafted in the previous four years. Curtiss will likely be the fifth in five drafts, though scouts think he's headed to college, as are most of the top high school pitchers in the Lone Star State this year. A top student who has committed to Texas, Curtiss is a projectable 6-foot-4, 190-pounder with a quick arm. He works from 89-93 mph and touches 95 with his fastball, which features good sink. He also flashes a plus slider and an effective changeup. Scouts praise his intelligence and competitiveness. The only real knock against Curtiss is that he throws across his body, but his motion adds deception without compromising his ability to throw strikes. If he becomes a Longhorn as expected, he could blossom into a first-rounder in 2014.
18 919 Toronto Blue Jays Kevin Patterson 1B Auburn Ala.
Senior Kevin Patterson has improved his defense and is now passable at first base, and he has tremendous raw power. His all-or-nothing approach still produces scads of strikeouts (56 in 195 at-bats this season).
19 920 St. Louis Cardinals David Bergin RHP Tennessee Wesleyan Tenn.
20 921 Chicago White Sox Brandon Parrent LHP Texas A&M Texas $100,000
21 922 Boston Red Sox Nick Moore 3B 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.
22 923 San Diego Padres Justin Miller OF Southeastern Oklahoma State Okla.
23 924 Texas Rangers Phil Klein RHP Youngstown State Ohio
24 925 Cincinnati Reds Joe Terry 3B Cal State Fullerton Calif.
25 926 Atlanta Braves Jon Youngblood OF Lafayette HS, Lexington, Ky. Ky.
26 927 San Francisco Giants David Fischer RHP Connecticut Conn.
David Fischer came out firing this season, working at 90-92 mph and touching 93 with his fastball on UConn's spring trip to Florida, which had some scouts projecting him into the first 10 rounds. Since then, his velocity leveled off and he has been inconsistent, making scouts think of him as more of a senior sign. His fastball has good tilt and sink, while his changeup is average.
27 928 Minnesota Twins Will Clinard RHP Vanderbilt Tenn.
28 929 New York Yankees John Brebbia RHP Elon N.C.
Righthander John Brebbia doesn't have the same velocity, sitting in the high 80s and touching 92 mph, with a poor arm action. He was Elon's most effective pitcher this season, though, going 7-1, 1.76 in 27 appearances covering 41 innings. He struck out 35 while walking only eight and allowing 24 hits.
29 930 Tampa Bay Rays Chris Burgess RHP Black Hawk (Ill.) JC Ill.
Righthander Chris Burgess didn't get a ton of exposure at Black Hawk, an NJCAA Division II program, so the team that drafts him will probably monitor him this summer with the Northwoods League's Madison Mallards. A 6-foot-2, 201-pounder, Burgess pitches at 88-89 mph, touches 92 and flashes an average slider. He's a third-year sophomore who redshirted at Central Michigan in 2009.
30 931 Philadelphia Phillies Mike Marshall 1B Lubbock Christian (Texas) Texas
