1 1262 Pittsburgh Pirates Nick Hibbing RHP Lakes Community HS, Antioch, Ill. Ill.
2 1263 Seattle Mariners David Villasuso C Miami Fla.
3 1264 Arizona Diamondbacks Tyler Bream 3B Liberty Va.
Third baseman Tyler Bream impressed at the plate in 2010, hitting .357/.393/.546 with 22 doubles and nine home runs in 269 at-bats. Whether it's the less lively bats or just draftitis, he batted .252/.291/.332 in 226 at-bats this season, with three home runs and nine doubles. Tyler is the son of former major leaguer Sid Bream, so some teams may bet on the pedigree and hope things will click in pro ball. But his performance this season may mean he'll be back for his senior year.
4 1265 Baltimore Orioles Jason McCracken RHP Pierce (Calif.) JC Calif.
5 1266 Kansas City Royals Joey Hawkins 2B Sinclair SS, Whitby, Ont. Ontario
6 1267 Washington Nationals David Kerian SS Bishop Heelan HS, Sioux City, Iowa Iowa
7 1268 Cleveland Indians K.C. Serna SS Oregon Ore.
8 1269 Chicago Cubs Brad Zapenas SS Boston College Mass.
9 1270 Houston Astros Hoke Granger OF Northside Methodist Academy, Dothan, Ala. Ala.
10 1271 Milwaukee Brewers Caleb Whalen SS Union HS, Camas, Wash. Wash.
11 1272 New York Mets Greg Pron OF West Florida Fla.
12 1273 Florida Marlins Jerad Grundy LHP Heartland (Ill.) CC Ill.
Lefthander Jerad Grundy earned a scholarship to Miami out of Johnsburg (Ill.) HS, but after pitching just 18 innings as a freshman in 2010, he transferred back home to Heartland CC. With an 88-92 mph fastball that touches 94 and a slider that generates swings and misses, he has the weapons to be a late-inning reliever in pro ball. His size (6 feet, 183 pounds) and maximum-effort delivery probably will prevent him from remaining a starter, though he does flash an average changeup. A 46th-round pick of the Rangers out of high school, Grundy has committed to Kentucky for 2012.
13 1274 Los Angeles Dodgers Max Povse RHP Green Hope HS, Cary, N.C. N.C.
Max Povse, a UNC Greensboro signee, is 6-foot-8, 190 pounds. He doesn't yet use his height to his advantage, as he is slight hunched over in his delivery. He has an 86-89 mph fastball and the makings of a decent curveball.
14 1275 Los Angeles Angels Jason Nappi 3B Harding (Ark.) Ark.
15 1276 Oakland Athletics Brett Geren C San Ramon Valley HS, Danville, Calif. Calif.
16 1277 Detroit Tigers Tim Chadd C Bishop Carroll HS, Wichita, Kan. Kan.
17 1278 Colorado Rockies Jordan Johnson RHP Franklin HS, Elk Grove, Calif. Calif.
18 1279 Toronto Blue Jays Shane Davis LHP Canisius N.Y.
19 1280 St. Louis Cardinals Cody Poarch RHP Walters State (Tenn.) CC Tenn.
20 1281 Chicago White Sox Aaron Pangilinan RHP Escalon (Calif.) HS Calif.
21 1282 Boston Red Sox Derek O'Dell 3B Canyon (Texas) HS Texas
22 1283 San Diego Padres Garrett Boulware C Hanna HS, Anderson, S.C. S.C.
Boulware, signed to Clemson, has good athleticism and arm strength. Boulware was an all-state football linebacker and has solid defensive skills as well as the makeup to play behind the plate. If he's signable, he could be the third or fourth prep player in the state drafted.
23 1284 Texas Rangers Joey Pankake RHP Easley (S.C.) HS S.C.
A strong performer this spring, South Carolina signee Joey Pankake, had the tools to get drafted but like English lacks physicality. Pankake hit and pitched for Easley and was an all-state basketball player as well despite his 6-foot-1, 180-pound frame. He has played varsity since eighth grade and has shown excellent defensive versatility, playing all over the diamond. He has excellent arm strength and has bumped 92-94 mph as a closer, though in longer stints, his velocity fades into the mid-80s. He's a line-drive machine at the plate who makes a lot of contact, at times at the expense of power. He's probably a better fit at second or third base in pro ball, and his lack of power hinders his third-base profile.
24 1285 Cincinnati Reds Jacob Stallings C North Carolina N.C.
Another catcher to watch is North Carolina's Jacob Stallings, who has added 30 pounds since his freshman year yet is still a lean 6-foot-5, 215 pounds. Scouts aren't worried about Stallings' defense. He has a strong arm and has shut down the running game for North Carolina. His bat is the question. He has just five home runs in 392 at-bats and was batting .272/.389/.400.
25 1286 Atlanta Braves Cody Livesay OF Anna-Jonesboro HS, Jonesboro, Ill. Ill.
26 1287 San Francisco Giants Danny Sandbrink RHP Stanford Calif.
27 1288 Minnesota Twins Matt Tomshaw LHP Jacksonville Fla.
28 1289 New York Yankees Kevin Cornelius SS Weatherford (Texas) HS Texas
29 1290 Tampa Bay Rays Mike Bourdon C Tampa Fla.
30 1291 Philadelphia Phillies Andre Kinder LHP Peru State (Neb.) Neb.
