2 1443 Seattle Mariners Max Krakowiak RHP Fordham N.Y.
3 1444 Arizona Diamondbacks Ray Hernandez RHP Cal State Fullerton Calif.
4 1445 Baltimore Orioles Tyler Hunter OF Lowndes HS, Valdosta, Ga. Ga.
5 1446 Kansas City Royals Matt Beaty C Dresden (Tenn.) HS Tenn.
6 1447 Washington Nationals Mike Bisenius OF Wayne State (Mich.) Mich.
7 1448 Cleveland Indians Blaine O'Brien RHP Keystone (Pa.) Pa.
Righthander Blaine O'Brien is a Massachusetts native who came to Division III Keystone from Middle Georgia JC. He was 8-1, 3.61 as the Giants advanced to the D-III College World Series. O'Brien has a skinny, projectable frame at 6-foot-7, 190 pounds, and touched 93-94 mph with his fastball. He's gangly and awkward, making it hard to repeat his mechanics, but the arm strength makes him interesting.
8 1449 Chicago Cubs Sam Howard LHP Cartersville (Ga.) HS Ga.
9 1450 Houston Astros A.J. Murray C Westfield (N.J.) HS N.J.
Catcher Andrew Murray was a two-sport standout at Westfield High, the same high school that Stanford righthander Chris Jenkins attended. Murray is well put together at 6-foot-2, 200 pounds thanks to his time as a football player, but he's let scouts know that he wants to play on the diamond. He has power and can handle the bat, but has below-average receiving skills and will likely end up as a first baseman or DH, putting a lot of pressure on his bat. He is committed to Georgia Tech.
10 1451 Milwaukee Brewers Mike Francisco LHP Villanova Pa.
Lefthander Mike Francisco serves as Villanova's closer and was drafted by the Phillies in the 45th round last year. He is a big-bodied guy at 6-foot-5, 230 pounds. He has some arm strength, ranging from 88-92 mph with his fastball, and has a decent curveball, but lacks command with both pitches. He also works with a changeup that has sinking action.
11 1452 New York Mets Malcolm Clapsaddle RHP Santa Fe (Fla.) CC Fla.
The state pitcher of the year, Clapsaddle has a memorable name and bumped 92 mph in the fall. His fastball velocity was less showy during the season, and his stuff generally earns fringy grades. He began his college career at Georgia and will go to High Point if he doesn't sign.
12 1453 Florida Marlins Chris Nunez 2B Goddard HS, Roswell, N.M. N.M.
13 1454 Los Angeles Dodgers Kevin Thompson SS Eastern New Mexico N.M.

16 1457 Detroit Tigers Lavaris McCullough OF Palatka (Fla.) HS Fla.

28 1469 New York Yankees Wes Benjamin LHP St. Charles (Ill.) East HS Ill.
29 1470 Tampa Bay Rays Brandon Liebrandt LHP Marist School, Atlanta Ga.
Brandon Liebrandt has a fastball in the upper 80s and a 6-foot-5, 185-pound frame that has some projection. He helped lead Marist High to the state 4-A championship, going 12-0. He's a Florida State recruit and considered a tough sign. He's the son of ex-Braves lefty Charlie Liebrandt.
