Round Overall Team Player Position State Bonus
3 120 Philadelphia Phillies Adam Morgan LHP Ala. $250,000
Alabama's roster is thin on tools, and the Crimson Tide may not have more than one player drafted in the first 10 rounds: Morgan, who has had flashes of brilliance mixed with low points. He has pitched in the rotation for three seasons, and his solid size and good arm action entice scouts. His delivery, arm action and delivery evoke Cliff Lee, though he doesn't have Lee's stuff or command. Morgan does pound the strike zone and at times pitches downhill with a 90-92 mph fastball. He also has flashed an above-average slider that will touch 84 mph, and his changeup flashes average as well. So why doesn't Morgan dominate? His fastball more regularly sits in the 87-90 mph range, and even at lower velocity it can flatten out. He has a stiff front leg in his delivery that at times prevents him from keeping the ball down, and his slider is inconsistent. He has been durable this season, though his delivery does raise injury concerns with some scouts.
8 249 Chicago Cubs Taylor Dugas OF Ala.
Outfielder Taylor Dugas was a first-team All-American in 2010, and at 5-foot-7, 165 pounds, he's a better college player than pro prospect. Hitting is his best skill. He has an excellent approach, having drawn 100 walks the last two seasons, and he earns comparisons to former Tide outfielder Emeel Salem, who reached Triple-A last season in the Rays system. Dugas is a slighlty above-average runner but plays a good center field. He's a tough profile whose arm is just fair, and his lack of power and game-changing speed limits him long-term.
30 916 Oakland Athletics Nathan Kilcrease RHP Ala.
After Adam Morgan, Alabama may not have another player picked in the first 10 rounds. The Crimson Tide scrapped its way to a regional berth nonetheless behind 5-foot-6 righthander Nathan Kilcrease, who spins a good breaking ball.
33 1017 San Francisco Giants Brock Bennett C Ala.
