1 1112 Pittsburgh Pirates Rodarrick Jones OF Southern La.
2 1113 Seattle Mariners Jeremy Null RHP Bunker Hill HS, Claremont, N.C. N.C.
Jeremy Null is 6-foot-8, 215 pounds and pitches with an upper-80s fastball, touching 90-91 mph. His delivery is well controlled for his age and size. His offspeed stuff leaves a lot to be desired for now, but he obviously offers plenty of projection. Null is headed to Western Carolina.
3 1114 Arizona Diamondbacks Elroy Urbina LHP Incarnate Word (Texas) Texas
4 1115 Baltimore Orioles Nick Skala C Concordia (Ill.) Ill.
5 1116 Kansas City Royals Matt Wessinger SS St. John's N.Y.
6 1117 Washington Nationals Derrick Bleeker RHP Howard (Texas) JC Texas
Bleeker got only 15 at-bats and didn't pitch as a freshman in Arkansas in 2010, then opened eyes by touching 97 mph during fall practice at Howard. He prefers hitting and playing the outfield to pitching, however, and was hard to see this spring because he worked just 13 innings, when his fastball sat at 92-93 mph. The 6-foot-5, 220 pounder throws strikes and flashes a hard slider, but he doesn't miss many bats because he doesn't get much angle on his pitches. Scouts question his competitive fire and think he'll attend North Carolina rather than turn pro.
7 1118 Cleveland Indians Taylor Starr RHP Oregon State Ore.
8 1119 Chicago Cubs Steven Maxwell RHP Texas Christian Texas
Texas Christian's entire weekend rotation will get drafted, with righthander Steven Maxwell following Matt Purke and Kyle Winkler. A fifth-year senior who turned down the Twins as a 12th-round pick after winning Mountain West Conference pitcher of the year honors in 2010, Maxwell succeeds by throwing strikes with a 90-91 mph sinker that maxes out at 93, and a solid slider. The 6-foot-1, 192-pounder had Tommy John surgery and missed a month this spring with biceps soreness.
9 1120 Houston Astros Steve Martin RHP Texas A&M Texas
10 1121 Milwaukee Brewers Casey Medlen RHP North Florida Fla.
11 1122 New York Mets Craig Missigman RHP Olympic HS, Charlotte N.C.
12 1123 Florida Marlins Jake Ehret RHP San Dimas (Calif.) HS Calif.
Righthander Jacob Ehret is still fairly new to pitching but shows feel for an 87-88 mph fastball that touches 89-90 and a curveball. He has a good 6-foot-3, 205-pound frame and could blossom under UCLA coach John Savage's tutelage.
13 1124 Los Angeles Dodgers Reid Redman 3B Texas Tech Texas
14 1125 Los Angeles Angels Brandon Efferson RHP Southeastern Louisiana La.
Southeastern Louisiana's Brandon Efferson, a 6-foot, 180-pound righthander, is one of the state's several solid senior signs. The Mets picked Efferson in the 17th round out of high school, and he resembles North Carolina's Patrick Johnson as a stock righty in terms of size whose stuff never got much better in college. His velocity had backed up previously, but bounced back this year to the 88-89 mph range, at times peaking at 90-92. He has added a cutter to mix things up and throws a true curveball with good shape and a short, sharp break.
15 1126 Oakland Athletics Eric Wood 3B Oshawa, Ontario (No school) Ontario
16 1127 Detroit Tigers Nick Avila RHP Nova Southeastern (Fla.) Fla.
17 1128 Colorado Rockies Brandon Bonilla LHP Pendleton School, Bradenton, Fla. Fla.
18 1129 Toronto Blue Jays Les Williams RHP Northeastern Mass.
19 1130 St. Louis Cardinals Brad Watson RHP Wartburg (Iowa) Iowa
20 1131 Chicago White Sox Todd Kibby LHP St. Petersburg (Fla.) JC Fla.
21 1132 Boston Red Sox Robert Youngdahl OF Hill-Murray HS, Maplewood, Minn. Minn.
22 1133 San Diego Padres Cody Semler SS Allen (Texas) HS Texas
23 1134 Texas Rangers Bryce Greager SS Fountain Hills (Ariz.) HS Ariz.
24 1135 Cincinnati Reds Michael Suiter OF Punahou HS, Honolulu Hawaii
Suiter wasn't at his best this spring due to a sprained knee. He's an above-average runner who can handle center field when healthy, and he has a compact swing and gap power at the plate. Suiter is committed to Santa Clara.
25 1136 Atlanta Braves Ryne Harper RHP Austin Peay State Tenn.
26 1137 San Francisco Giants Michael Williams C Kentucky Ky.
27 1138 Minnesota Twins Drew Leachman OF Birmingham-Southern Ala.
28 1139 New York Yankees Ryan Harris RHP Jupiter (Fla.) HS Fla.
Righthander Ryan Harris is part of another strong Florida recruiting class and had a dominant spring, but scouts slotted him behind area rivals Michael Kelly and Kyle Smith. Harris' fastball can reach 90-91 mph, and he has good athleticism. At 6-foot-1, 185 pounds, he doesn't have a current plus pitch.
29 1140 Tampa Bay Rays Tanner Poppe RHP Kansas Kan.
Baseball was righthander Tanner Poppe's third-best sport at Girard HS, where he was recruited by college football programs as a tight end and led the basketball team to consecutive Kansas 4-A runner-up finishes. He's still more of an intriguing athlete than a polished pitcher. The 6-foot-4, 235-pounder has a low-90s sinker and flashes an average slider, but he lacks control and command and thus doesn't miss as many bats as he should. He's a draft-eligible sophomore, and his added leverage and his inconsistency could cause him to slide in the draft.
30 1141 Philadelphia Phillies Mike Nastold RHP Louisville Ky.
Righthander Mike Nastold intrigued scouts early in the season when he showed a heavy 90-92 mph fastball that reached 94 and backed it up with a hard curveball. In his first year back after having Tommy John surgery in May 2009, he couldn't maintain that stuff and lacked fastball command and consistent feel for his curve. He has a strong 6-foot-3, 220-pound frame, but he has a long arm action and a stiff delivery. Another Louisville redshirt sophomore, he's considered more signable than his teammate Justin Amlung.
