1 1382 Pittsburgh Pirates Jeff Schalk OF Wheaton (Ill.) North HS Ill.
2 1383 Seattle Mariners Maxx Catapano RHP Lee (Tenn.) Tenn.
3 1384 Arizona Diamondbacks Joe Loftus OF Vanderbilt Tenn.
4 1385 Baltimore Orioles Mark Reyes LHP Jessieville (Ark.) HS Ark.
Lefthander Mark Reyes, an Arkansas recruit, has a tremendous feel for pitching as well as athleticism and a knack for getting strikeouts. Reyes' fastball has touched 90-91 mph, but scouts like his ability to add and subtract from his heater more than his pure velocity. He had an 18-strikeout no-hitter in this year's state 3-A quarterfinals, and earned playoff MVP honors with a 17-strikeout two-hitter. His fastball sat in the low 80s for much of those games, according to evaluators, and he was able to reach back for 87-88 mph when needed. Reyes has deception in his delivery and a rubber arm that allowed him to pitch in relief frequently in the postseason in between his starts. His changeup is his best secondary pitch, though for some scouts that's just Reyes adding and subtracting off his fastball. He's considered a tough sign.
5 1386 Kansas City Royals Adrian Bringas 3B Chico State (Calif.) Calif.
6 1387 Washington Nationals Tyler Thompson OF Florida Fla.
Florida's deep roster has affected position players such as Tyler Thompson, who has not been able to maintain a regular job in the outfield. He's a solid athlete.
7 1388 Cleveland Indians Robert Nixon RHP Adelphi (N.Y.) N.Y.
8 1389 Chicago Cubs Scott Weismann RHP Clemson S.C.
Righthander Scott Weismann was expected to be a fixture in Clemson's rotation after he led the team with nine victories in 2010. He didn't meet expectations, though he wasn't hurt, just ineffective. He's stocky at 6 feet, 190 pounds, and he was much more effective out of the bullpen, limiting opponents to a .128 average entering the ACC tournament. Weismann's sinker reaches 93, and his slider helps him get groundballs, but neither pitch gets a ton of swings and misses. He added a cutter this year that gave him a different look.
9 1390 Houston Astros Justin Shults 1B UC Riverside Calif.
10 1391 Milwaukee Brewers Ahmad Christian SS Trinity Christian Academy, Deltona, Fla. Fla.
11 1392 New York Mets Rich Ruff RHP Quincy (Ill.) Ill.
12 1393 Florida Marlins Zach Cooper RHP Central Michigan Mich.
Righthander Zach Cooper has an 88-93 mph fastball, but he doesn't use it or command it enough. His hard, biting slider is his out pitch, and he relies on it too much. He's just 5-foot-10 and 185 pounds, and he has some effort and works uphill in his delivery, so he'll be a reliever in pro ball. His stuff should play up when he comes out of the bullpen, and could be good enough for set-up duty.
13 1394 Los Angeles Dodgers Victor Munoz C Claremont (Calif.) HS Calif.
14 1395 Los Angeles Angels Michael Johnson LHP Hillsborough (Fla.) CC Fla. $140,000
15 1396 Oakland Athletics Nate Esposito C Granite Bay (Calif.) HS Calif.
16 1397 Detroit Tigers Alex Fernandez Jr. OF Archbishop McCarthy HS, Southwest Ranches, Fla. Fla.
17 1398 Colorado Rockies Nathaniel Causey C Gilbert (Ariz.) HS Ariz.
Nathaniel Causey has intriguing tools. He's passable behind the plate and shows good power as a lefthanded hitter, though the swing is a little stiff and he's pull-conscious right now. Scouts backed off this year because of his strong commitment to Arizona State.
18 1399 Toronto Blue Jays Shane Farrell RHP Marshall W.Va.
19 1400 St. Louis Cardinals Chadwick Kaalekahi C Campbell HS, Ewa Beach, Hawaii Hawaii
20 1401 Chicago White Sox Mike Mancuso RHP Brecksville-Broadview Heights HS, Broadview Heights, Ohio Ohio
21 1402 Boston Red Sox Mac Williamson OF Wake Forest N.C.
22 1403 San Diego Padres Eddie Salomon 2B Beaumont (Calif.) HS Calif.
23 1404 Texas Rangers Tyler Powell RHP Myers Park HS, Charlotte N.C.
24 1405 Cincinnati Reds Jose Brizuela 3B Archbishop McCarthy HS, Southwest Ranches, Fla. Fla.
25 1406 Atlanta Braves John Means LHP Gardner-Edgerton HS, Gardner, Kan. Kan.
26 1407 San Francisco Giants Elliott Blair OF Oklahoma Okla.
27 1408 Minnesota Twins Jared Dettmann LHP Somerset (Wis.) HS Wis.
28 1409 New York Yankees Conner Mach 3B Missouri Mo.
29 1410 Tampa Bay Rays Max Rossiter C Central Arizona JC Ariz.
Rossiter, who is committed to Arizona State, has average arm strength and power, and the toughness to remain at catcher.
30 1411 Philadelphia Phillies Scott Tomassetti C Sierra Vista HS, Las Vegas Nev.
Tomassetti is built more like a catcher at 6-foot-1 and 185 pounds. He's a little stiff behind the plate and will need work to stay back there. Tomassetti benefited from being teammates with Jake Hager and getting extra scouting attention.
