9 1210 Houston Astros Buddy Lamothe RHP San Jacinto (Texas) JC Texas

20 1221 Chicago White Sox Jake Reed RHP Helix Charter HS, La Mesa, Calif. Calif.
Also a high school quarterback, Reed earns raves for his athleticism and makeup. He has outstanding feel for pitching and a promising three-pitch mix. He spots his fastball well and it ranges from 88-92 mph, peaking at 93. His breaking ball and changeup both flash average, and he can throw both pitches for strikes. He gets caught in between breaking balls; sometimes it looks more like a slider with good depth, and other times more like a curveball. His changeup has late sink when it's on, but he needs to become more consistent with it. Reed's arm action is a little funky and short, but he could add velocity as he fills out his 6-foot-2, 175-pound frame. He's committed to Oregon, but as one of the top two prep righthanders in Southern California, he could be drafted in the top three to five rounds.
21 1222 Boston Red Sox Jordan Gross LHP Don Bosco Prep, Ramsey, N.J. N.J.
Don Bosco Prep has taken over as the state powerhouse in the last few years, producing several Division I players including Virginia third baseman Steven Proscia, who ranks No. 144 on our Top 200 this year. The Ironmen have a strong junior class, and this year's top prospect is lefthander Jordan Gross, who is committed to Tulane. His fastball can range from 85-90 mph and he shows a solid curveball with some shape. He isn't considered signable, but scouts are intrigued to see what he could turn into in three years.
22 1223 San Diego Padres Taylor Murphy 3B Torrey Pines HS, San Diego Calif.
23 1224 Texas Rangers Josh Peterson RHP Unaka HS, Elizabethton, Tenn. Tenn.
24 1225 Cincinnati Reds Sam Travis 3B Providence Catholic HS, New Lenox, Ill. Ill.
25 1226 Atlanta Braves Jacoby Almaraz 3B San Jacinto (Texas) JC Texas
26 1227 San Francisco Giants Alan Garcia RHP Eastern Arizona JC Ariz.
Eastern Arizona righthander Alan Garcia, a native of Hermosillo, Mexico, has a 6-foot-4, 210-pound frame and drew scouts by touching 95 mph with his fastball early in the season. He was inconsistent and mostly pitched in the 87-91 mph range, however, and had an appendectomy that also slowed him down. A team may give him a shot later in the draft, hoping that the 95 mph fastball returns. If he doesn't sign, he will pitch for Azusa Pacific next year.
27 1228 Minnesota Twins Kyle Barraclough RHP St. Mary's Calif.
St. Mary's righthander Kyle Barraclough has a strapping, 6-foot-3, 200-pound frame with a barrel chest. He has shown good arm strength, touching 94 mph as late as the eighth inning of games. His secondary stuff comes and goes, and he shows a nasty slider on occasion. If he doesn't improve the consistency of those offerings, he may wind up in the bullpen, where he could add velocity in shorter stints.
28 1229 New York Yankees Tyler Hanover SS Louisiana State La.
29 1230 Tampa Bay Rays Joe Perricone RHP Hersey HS, Arlington Heights, Ill. Ill.
Scouts regarded Joe Perricone as more of an outfield prospect with some bat potential and athleticism until he touched 93 mph with his fastball last summer. Now the 6-foot-2, 180-pounder's future is on the mound. A righthander, he has pitched at 88-92 mph with his fastball and at 76-79 mph with his breaking ball, though the latter is slurvy. While his delivery is clean, he gets offline away from the plate and loses his command. He's a Coastal Carolina recruit.
