1 1022 Pittsburgh Pirates Hommy Rosado 1B Louisiana State-Eunice JC La.
The state's junior colleges will provide some solid selections as well, led by Hommy Rosado, a slugging corner bat who was a second-team All-American at Barbe High last season and an 11th-round pick of the Rockies. Rosado had questions about his defense last year but played third base at LSU-Eunice JC and was fair there, despite missing a month with an injury. Rosado was in better shape this year as well, but his bat remains the 6-foot, 210-pounder's best tool, as he led the team with eight home runs. Rosado could go out in the same range as where he was picked last year.
2 1023 Seattle Mariners Taylor Smith-Brennan 2B Edmonds (Wash.) CC Wash.
Taylor Brennan was drafted in the 29th round by the Angels last year out of high school but chose not to sign. Originally headed for Lewis-Clark State in Idaho, Brennan opted to remain closer to home (and make himself draft-eligible again) at Edmonds CC. Scouts liked Brennan more when he had a looser body and could play shortstop, but he has added 20 pounds of muscle to his frame in recent years and now is at second base. The bulk has hurt more than it helped. Brennan lost agility in the field, tightened up at the plate and is now a below-average runner.
3 1024 Arizona Diamondbacks Zach Jones C Stanford Calif.
4 1025 Baltimore Orioles Zach Fowler LHP Texas Tech Texas
5 1026 Kansas City Royals Ali Williams RHP Charleston Southern S.C.
6 1027 Washington Nationals Calvin Drummond RHP San Diego Calif.
Drummond, a 6-foot-3, 212-pound redshirt sophomore, was a 34th-round pick out Huntington Beach High in 2008, and he started college at Arizona State before transferring to Orange Coast CC for the 2009 season. He sat out 2010 after transferring to USD, then led Toreros starters with a 3.29 ERA this spring. He came out of the chute strong, impressing scouts with a 91-94 mph fastball, a good 85-87 cutter, and a serviceable curveball and change. He settled into the 87-91 mph range as the spring progressed, and his feel for pitching was spotty. His delivery has funk and effort, and he could benefit from more seasoning in college, though a team could make a run at him inside the top 10 rounds.
7 1028 Cleveland Indians Tyler Maloof RHP Georgia Ga.
8 1029 Chicago Cubs Bobby Kelley OF Calhoun (Ala.) CC Ala.
9 1030 Houston Astros Dustin Kellogg RHP Caney Creek HS, Conroe, Texas Texas
10 1031 Milwaukee Brewers Adam Weisenburger C Miami (Ohio) Ohio
11 1032 New York Mets Jacob Lugo RHP Centenary N.J.
12 1033 Florida Marlins John Schultz OF Pittsburgh Pa.
13 1034 Los Angeles Dodgers Rob Chamra RHP North Carolina State N.C.
14 1035 Los Angeles Angels Andy Workman OF Arizona State Ariz.
15 1036 Oakland Athletics Alfredo Unzue LHP Calabasas, Calif. (No school) Calif.
16 1037 Detroit Tigers Zach Maggard C Florida Southern Fla.
17 1038 Colorado Rockies Chris Dennis RHP Portland Ore.
18 1039 Toronto Blue Jays Aaron Munoz C Northwestern State La.
19 1040 St. Louis Cardinals Tyler Rahmatulla 2B UCLA Calif.
Bruins second baseman Tyler Rahmatulla has been snake-bitten over the last two years. He had a strong sophomore season (.328/.434/.509 with seven homers and 19 doubles) as UCLA's No. 3 hitter, but he missed the Bruins' run to the College World Series finals after breaking his wrist in the post-super regional dogpile celebration. When he returned last fall, Rahmatulla misstepped while taking ground balls in the Bruins' first workout, breaking a bone in the top of his foot and sidelining him for eight weeks. Then his season ended after just 18 games due to academic ineligibility. He has a chance to be an average defender at second base with an average line-drive bat and a blue-collar mentality, but his stock has dropped.
20 1041 Chicago White Sox Dakota Freese RHP Washington HS, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Iowa
21 1042 Boston Red Sox Sean Dartnell LHP Vauxhall (Alb.) HS Alberta
22 1043 San Diego Padres Dennis O'Grady RHP Duke N.C.
23 1044 Texas Rangers Taylor Dennis RHP Southern Indiana Ind.
Righthander Taylor Dennis was named MVP of the NCAA Division II College World Series in 2010 after winning two starts to lead Southern Indiana to its first-ever national title. Wiry and athletic at 6-foot-1 and 170 pounds, he has a quick arm that delivers hard sinkers up to 94 mph. His slider is a fringy second pitch.
24 1045 Cincinnati Reds Bryson Smith OF Florida Fla.
25 1046 Atlanta Braves Chris Bullard OF Western Kentucky Ky.
26 1047 San Francisco Giants Ben Thomas 1B Xavier Ohio
27 1048 Minnesota Twins Ryan Tella OF Ohlone (Calif.) JC Calif.
Outfielder Ryan Tella impressed scouts and opposing coaches with his high-octane style of play. He's a lefthanded leadoff hitter and center fielder who shows above-average speed, which helps him cover a lot of ground in the outfield and be a pest on the bases. Tella has an above-average arm and a short, efficient swing that produces a lot of doubles. If he doesn't sign, he's headed to Auburn.
28 1049 New York Yankees Skylar Janisse RHP St. Thomas of Villanova SS, LaSalle, Ont. Ontario
Skylar Janisse is a 6-foot-5, 206-pound righthander who played in the Under Armour All-American game last summer. His fastball is in the mid- to high 80s right now, but his arm works well and he's a great competitor on the mound. Janisse shows good feel for a changeup and his breaking ball is inconsistent. If Janisse doesn't sign, he is committed to Oakland.
29 1050 Tampa Bay Rays Zach Butler RHP McNeese State La.
30 1051 Philadelphia Phillies Brandon Pletsch SS Rancho HS, Las Vegas Nev.
