6 202 Boston Red Sox Miguel Pena LHP Texas $85,000
Lefthander Miguel Pena is essentially the same pitcher he was when the Nationals made him a surprise fifth-round pick out of high school two years ago. He's still 6-foot-2 and 160 pounds, and he still has an 88-91 mph fastball, a sharp curveball and a solid changeup. He repeats his clean delivery well, allowing him to throw strikes with ease. He won 25 games in two years at San Jacinto, though getting sent home from the Cape Cod League last summer for disciplinary reasons hurts his cause. A 13th-round pick of the Padres in 2010, he should go in roughly the same area of the 2011 draft. If he doesn't sign, he'll attend Lubbock Christian.
22 677 Detroit Tigers Tommy Collier RHP Texas
Collier was the leading winner on San Jacinto's 2009 College World Series team but had Tommy John surgery last year. The Gators eased him back in a relief role, and the 6-foot-2, 205-pounder showed a low-90s sinker and signs of a plus changeup. His hard slider used to be his bread and butter--and throwing too many may have led to his torn elbow ligament--but he babied his breaking ball this spring. Drafted twice previously (29th round by the Brewers in 2008, 49th round by the Blue Jays in 2009), Collier is expected to sign rather than follow through on a commitment to Houston.
24 739 Toronto Blue Jays David Rollins LHP Texas
Rollins, a lefthander who endured two surgeries on his non-throwing shoulder, has a better three-pitch mix than teammate Miguel Pena but not as much command. The 6-foot-1, 195-pounder has an 88-91 mph sinker, a slider with bite and a good changeup. He has been drafted in each of the last three years, by the Dodgers in the 19th round in 2008 and by the Mariners in the 23rd round in 2009 and the 46th round last year. Like Pena, Rollins has signed with Lubbock Christian for 2012.

40 1210 Houston Astros Buddy Lamothe RHP Texas
Righthander Buddy Lamothe, a Franklin Pierce (N.H.) transfer, was attracting attention at San Jacinto when he touched 93 mph and spun hard breaking balls. But he sustained serious neck and spinal cord injuries in a May 1 diving accident, and he has been hospitalized since.
