Round Overall Team Player Position State Bonus
3 104 Los Angeles Angels Nick Maronde LHP Fla. $309,600
Maronde entered his senior high school season in Kentucky as the No. 19 player on BA's Top 100 high school prospects list. He was a 43rd-round pick by the Athletics in 2008 because of the strength of his commitment to Florida, and he got 11 starts as a freshman, leading the team in strikeouts. He struggled as a sophomore, relegated to a relief role and posting a 6.15 ERA. He found success as a reliever this year, dominating at times with an above-average fastball and aggressive approach. Maronde's fastball has reached 96 and sits 90-94 mph, and he has shown the ability to pitch off it, at times to the exclusion of his other stuff. He had a recent outing with 26 straight fastballs and used no other pitch. His control of his fastball and slider are both better this year, and at times his slider is average. He hasn't used his changeup much, though he threw it as a freshman and in high school. His 6-foot-3, 200-pound frame and potential three-pitch mix make it likely he'll return to a starting role once he's drafted, though he could move quickly as a power-armed lefthanded reliever.
6 199 Toronto Blue Jays Anthony DeSclafani RHP Fla. $250,000
The 6-foot-2, 195-pound DeSclafani throws hard at 93-96 mph out of the bullpen with surprising feel for a slider. DeSclafani's control is short and his fastball flattens out, and despite his big stuff and loose arm, he gets hit hard.
9 282 New York Mets Alex Panteliodis LHP Fla. $175,000
The Gator bullpen features 6-foot-2, 230-pound Alex Panteliodis, a soft-bodied pitchability lefthander who was the Gators' ace in 2010, going 11-3, 3.51. At his best, Panteliodis has an average fastball that he commands to go with a solid curveball and decent changeup. He didn't respond well to losing his starting job this season.
11 341 Milwaukee Brewers Tommy Toledo RHP Fla.
Toledo was a third-round pick in 2007, was in the rotation in 2008 and missed the 2009 season with Tommy John surgery. He came back last year in a sporadic role and has pitched mostly in relief this season, reaching 94-95 mph.
13 403 Florida Marlins Josh Adams SS Fla.
Senior second baseman Josh Adams hit just .224 last season, then responded with a .340 year this season. He shifted to a contact approach this season and should be a solid organizational infielder.
16 498 Colorado Rockies Preston Tucker 1B Fla.
Tucker broke in to college ball with a splash, driving in 85 runs and earning first-team Freshman All-American honors in 2009. He was primarily a first baseman in his first two seasons but has shifted to the outfield as a junior to help Florida get more bats into the lineup and to showcase Tucker's versatility. Most scouts says it has done more to expose Tucker's flaws than highlight his strengths, though, and after he batted .113 in the Cape Cod League he has his detractors. He did rally in the Cape to hit two home runs in the postseason, and he rallied from a slow 2011 start to get back over .300 in Southeastern Conference play while hitting double digits in home runs again. Tucker has solid hitting ability and makes consistent contact, and he's not afraid to work counts. He has solid power, but it's hard for scouts to give him above-average grades for either of his best tools. Defensively, he fits better in left field, where his below-average speed and arm are less of a factor than in right, where he plays for the Gators. Some scouts see him as more of a first baseman. His track record of performance should get him off the board in the first six rounds.
23 701 Milwaukee Brewers Ben McMahan C Fla.
Catcher Ben McMahan has catch-and-throw skills and a pro body but has been buried behind sophomore Mike Zunino, the Southeastern Conference player of the year.
24 751 Philadelphia Phillies Matt Campbell RHP Fla.
29 885 Los Angeles Angels Greg Larson RHP Fla.
34 1045 Cincinnati Reds Bryson Smith OF Fla.
46 1387 Washington Nationals Tyler Thompson OF 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.
