1 1082 Pittsburgh Pirates Isaac Ballou OF Marshall W.Va.
Ballou garnered interest as a toolsy but raw outfielder in high school. He has good speed and 18 stolen bases this season, but he's a .261 hitter and has only 20 extra base hits in 326 career at-bats.
2 1083 Seattle Mariners Bo Reeder RHP East Tennessee State Tenn.
Bo Reeder is a squat two-way player who is listed at 6 feet, 195 pounds. As a closer, his fastball sits in the 90-92 range, touching 95, and he attacks hitters but might fit better as a hitter. He played third base for the Buccaneers and could play behind the plate or at second base if he's athletic enough to stay there. He's unrefined as a hitter but has good bat speed and surprising pop.
3 1084 Arizona Diamondbacks Bryan Henry C Keystone (Pa.) Pa.
4 1085 Baltimore Orioles Jeffrey Zona RHP Hanover HS, Mechanicsville, Va. Va.
5 1086 Kansas City Royals Christian Witt RHP Truman State (Mo.) Mo.
6 1087 Washington Nationals Ben Hawkins LHP West Florida Fla.
7 1088 Cleveland Indians Abel Guerrero LHP Galveston (Texas) JC Texas
8 1089 Chicago Cubs Travis Garcia 3B Martin Methodist (Tenn.) Tenn.
9 1090 Houston Astros Kevin Gonzalez C Texas A&M Texas
10 1091 Milwaukee Brewers Mitchell Conner RHP Elon N.C.
Mitch Conner has a plus fastball and will flash a good breaking ball, but he has a hard time maintaining velocity so he is best suited for a couple of innings out of the bullpen. He has a good frame at 6-foot-3, 210 pounds.
11 1092 New York Mets Ryan Hutson 1B Texas-San Antonio Texas
12 1093 Florida Marlins Damek Tomscha 3B 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.
13 1094 Los Angeles Dodgers Kevin Taylor 2B Western Nevada CC Nev.
14 1095 Los Angeles Angels Brandon Brewer SS West Florida Fla.
15 1096 Oakland Athletics Brenden Farney SS Vacaville (Calif.) HS Calif.
16 1097 Detroit Tigers Jake Sabol RHP Central Michigan Mich.
17 1098 Colorado Rockies Tyler Servais C Douglas County HS, Castle Rock, Colo. Colo.
18 1099 Toronto Blue Jays Arik Sikula RHP Marshall W.Va.
19 1100 St. Louis Cardinals Casey Rasmus C Liberty Va.
20 1101 Chicago White Sox Cody Winiarski RHP Virginia Va.
Cody Winiarski works with a fastball in the upper 80s and solid secondary stuff.
21 1102 Boston Red Sox Jace Herrera RHP Wekiva HS, Apopka, Fla. Fla.
22 1103 San Diego Padres Andrew Rash OF Virginia Tech Va.
23 1104 Texas Rangers Jeremy Williams OF Mobile (Ala.) Ala.
24 1105 Cincinnati Reds Randall Yard RHP Hawaii Hawaii
25 1106 Atlanta Braves Gardner Adams RHP Asbury (Ky.) Ky.
26 1107 San Francisco Giants Austin Lubinsky RHP Minnesota Minn.
Fellow Minnesota righthander Austin Lubinsky's stuff is similar to that of Oakes, though he comes in a smaller package at 6-foot-1 and 195 pounds. Lubinsky is athletic and has solid mechanics, which allow him to fill the strike zone. He has an 88-92 mph fastball that can get straight at times, as well as a decent low-80s slider and an effective changeup.
27 1108 Minnesota Twins Austin Barrois OF Belle Chasse (La.) HS La.
28 1109 New York Yankees Ryan Thompson RHP Franklin Pierce (N.H.) N.H.
The first Franklin Pierce Raven off the board should be redshirt sophomore righthander Ryan Thompson, who played at UConn for two years before transferring to Franklin Pierce last fall. Thompson, who is originally from Canada and learned how to play baseball in the Bahamas, hadn't pitched much before this season, but he went 11-1, 1.23 with 114 strikeouts in 95 innings through 13 starts in the wood-bat Northeast-10 Conference. Thompson's fastball sits at 88-92 mph with occasional sink, though scouts want to see him work off it more often, and he throws an average slider and a developing changeup. He holds velocity deep into games, which should give him a chance to start at the next level, but he profiles better as a sinker/slider reliever. Thompson could get taken in the top eight rounds, but he's more likely to go somewhere between rounds 10 and 15.
29 1110 Tampa Bay Rays Dave Kubiak RHP Albany N.Y.
Kubiak has a massive, durable 6-foot-6, 225-pound frame, but he throws across his body and doesn't repeat his delivery, and the ball doesn't come out of his hand well. Kubiak has a decent changeup and not much of a breaking ball. He'll be a later pick as a senior sign.
30 1111 Philadelphia Phillies Brendon Hayden RHP Wilmot (Wis.) Union HS Wis.
Wisconsin's best high school prospect is Brendon Hayden, but he's mostly projection at this point and seems destined to attend Virginia Tech. Scouts are mixed over whether the 6-foot-5, 215-pounder has a brighter future as a righthander or as a third baseman. The majority prefer him on the mound, where he touches 90 mph with his fastball and usually sits at 85-88. His curveball lacks power as well. He has the body to create leverage for power, but he needs to get stronger.
