Round Overall Team Player Position School Bonus
1 6 Washington Nationals Anthony Rendon 3B Rice $6,000,000
Rendon entered the season as the draft's top-rated prospect and still sits atop our rankings, but his season hasn't gone as planned. After hitting a combined .391/.497/.750 with 46 homers as BA's Freshman of the Year in 2009 and College Player of the Year in 2010, Rendon hit .323/.526/.516 with five homers in the regular season this spring. He strained his throwing shoulder in the second week of the season and has played little in the field. Rendon hadn't given teams any medical information as of mid-May, leaving them in the dark about the severity of the injury. Though it has affected his swing and bat speed, he's still the best all-around hitter in the draft. The 6-foot, 190-pounder has tremendous strength in his hands and wrists, uncanny hand-eye coordination and exceptional strike-zone discipline. Teams have pitched around him all season, and he was the runaway NCAA Division I leader with 66 walks. His bat speed and ability to barrel balls give Rendon more usable power than any player in the draft, with scouts projecting the righthanded hitter to bat .300 with 25-30 homers a year in the major leagues. When healthy, Rendon is a gifted third baseman with above-average range and arm strength. He has drawn comparisons to Evan Longoria and Ryan Zimmerman, though he bears a closer physical resemblance to David Wright. Rendon tore ligaments in his right ankle in the 2009 NCAA regionals and broke the same ankle on a slide with Team USA last summer, but he has been running and moving as well as ever this spring. He has average speed and runs the bases well. Both ankle injuries came on fluke plays, so scouts don't consider him injury-prone. As frustrating as his season has been, Rendon remains a strong candidate to go No. 1 overall. If Pittsburgh goes in another direction, it's unlikely the Mariners would pass on him at No. 2.
1 12 Milwaukee Brewers Taylor Jungmann RHP Texas $2,525,000
As a freshman in 2009, Jungmann won 11 games and pitched a complete-game five-hitter against Louisiana State in the College World Series finals. As a sophomore, he was the ace of a Texas staff that led NCAA Division I with a 2.45 ERA. Jungmann has taken another step this spring, leading all D-I pitchers with 12 victories and three shutouts and ranking second with a 0.95 ERA at the end of the regular season. He pitches at 91-93 mph and tops out at 95 with his fastball, and he has done a better job of using his 6-foot-6, 220-pound frame to command his heater down in the strike zone. He has improved the sharpness and command of his slider as well. His changeup is average at times but more of a work in progress, though he can get lefthanders out with the sink and life on his fastball. Jungmann excels under pressure--he's 6-0 in NCAA tournament play--and has demonstrated the ability to win without his best stuff. He has some effort and a short stride in his delivery, but he has cleaned it up since high school and it doesn't impede his ability to throw strikes.
1s 45 Colorado Rockies Trevor Story SS Irving (Texas) HS $915,000
Story is one of the few quality, surefire shortstops in the 2011 draft, with a better chance to stick at the position than Javier Baez and Levi Michael. Scouts who believe in Story's bat see him as close to a five-tool shortstop, so he could sneak into the end of the first round. He has smooth actions along with plus range and arm strength. He has shown a 90-92 mph fastball while occasionally closing games for Irving. Story has good pop for a middle infielder, though the 6-foot, 175-pounder generates his power by collapsing on his backside and using an uppercut. His quick hands generate plenty of bat speed and allow him to barrel balls, though he may need to tone down his swing against professional pitchers. He has above-average speed and runs the bases well. Though he has committed to Louisiana State, he's expected to turn pro if he gets selected before the start of the second round.
1s 49 San Francisco Giants Kyle Crick RHP Sherman (Texas) HS $900,000
Crick played mostly first base for Sherman as a junior a year ago, but began to realize his future was on the mound when he hit 94 mph with his fastball on the showcase circuit during the summer. He since has emerged as the top pitching prospect in the Texas high school ranks this spring. Working from a high three-quarters arm slot, he consistently has dealt in the low 90s, peaking at 97 mph and featuring late life on his heater. His mid-70s curveball is a plus pitch at times, though it lacks command and consistency because he overthrows it. Crick also will flash an above-average slider and fiddles around with a splitter and a changeup, but he's essentially still in the early stages of learning to pitch. He's mainly an arm-strength guy right now, but it's impressive arm strength. There's effort in the 6-foot-3, 225-pounder's delivery, and he'd do a better job of living in the strike zone if he took a more direct line toward the plate. He has committed to Texas Christian.
2 61 Pittsburgh Pirates Josh Bell OF Dallas Jesuit HS $5,000,000
Bell has the most usable power among high school players in the 2011 draft, and he provides it from both sides of the plate. He has been switch-hitting since he was 5 years old, and he's equally effective from both sides of the plate. Armed with quick hands, strength and an advanced approach, the 6-foot-3, 206-pounder projects as a plus hitter for both average and power. A cracked left kneecap prevented him from proving himself on the showcase circuit last summer, but he recovered to star at the World Wood Bat Championship in October. Bell's other tools aren't as dynamic as his bat, and he'll have to move from center field once he turns pro, but he profiles nicely as a corner outfielder. He's an average runner who may have enough arm strength to play right field. Bell is a good student whose mother is a college professor and who will be advised by the Boras Corp., so it may cost a team dearly to pry him away from a Texas scholarship. His offensive upside still will draw plenty of suitors in the middle of the first round.
2 78 Toronto Blue Jays Jeremy Gabryszwski RHP Crosby (Texas) HS $575,000
Jeremy Gabryszwski excited scouts when he touched 94 mph with his fastball in his first scrimmage. He sat at 92-93 for three innings, and also showed a plus slider and an average changeup. The 6-foot-4, 205-pound righthander didn't maintain that stuff throughout the season, often working in the high 80s. He had surgery to repair a displaced bone in his elbow in 2008, with doctors placing a screw in his elbow. He's a Lamar recruit.
2 88 New York Yankees Sam Stafford LHP Texas
Lefthander Sam Stafford hasn't been able to nail down a spot in Texas' weekend rotation, though not because he lacks stuff. The 6-foot-4, 190-pounder hit 96 mph while winning pitcher-of-the-year honors in the California Collegiate League last summer, but he has to dial his fastball down to 90-91 mph to try to find the strike zone. He has good shape to his curveball and doesn't always locate that pitch where he wants, either. Stafford can be unhittable at times. If he can't improve his command he'll be ticketed for the bullpen as a pro.
3 95 Kansas City Royals Bryan Brickhouse RHP The Woodlands (Texas) HS $1,500,000
Brickhouse is the latest strong-armed pitcher to come out of The Woodlands, which also spawned first-rounders Kyle Drabek (2006) and Jameson Taillon (2010). He won't go quite as high in the draft, and the Tar Heel State native may not be signable away from a North Carolina scholarship if he doesn't. Brickhouse will show good stuff at times, but he doesn't always maintain it past a few innings or throw strikes with it. He has two plus pitches in a 90-93 mph fastball that peaks at 95 and a spike curveball with 11-5 break. The curve sometimes morphs into a slider, and he has the beginnings of a changeup. Six-foot-2 and 190 pounds, he's not particularly big or athletic. He has effort in his delivery and doesn't always stay on top of his pitches. If he can develop consistency, Brickhouse might be a No. 3 starter. He also profiles well as a late-inning reliever who could focus on attacking hitters with his fastball and breaking ball. He helped his cause with a strong performance in the Texas 5-A state playoffs, striking out 11, 12 and 13 batters in his three starts.
3 96 Washington Nationals Matt Purke LHP Texas Christian $2,750,000
Purke opened the year ranked right behind Anthony Rendon and Gerrit Cole as a potential No. 1 overall pick, but where he'll go in the draft is now wide open. He left an April 16 start against San Diego State after his fastball dropped to 82 mph in the fifth inning, and was diagnosed with shoulder bursitis four days later by orthopedist Dr. James Andrews. Purke didn't pitch again until he threw three shutout innings against New Mexico on May 19. The 14th overall pick in the 2009 draft, he agreed to a $6 million deal with the Rangers, but Major League Baseball (which controlled the club's finances at the time) wouldn't approve the deal because of the team's financial problems. So Purke joined the Horned Frogs and led them to their first-ever College World Series berth in 2010, leading NCAA Division I in wins while going 16-0, 3.02 and winning Baseball America's Freshman of the Year award. He took the summer and fall off and was hampered this season by back and blister issues. Some scouts believe his shoulder problems came because he didn't build up enough arm strength. Others blame his delivery, as the 6-foot-4, 180-pounder slings the ball from a low three-quarters arm slot. His mechanics deteriorated this spring, as he worked from an even lower angle and threw across his body more than usual, causing his stuff to flatten out. When he's healthy, Purke pitches off a lively 91-94 mph fastball that reaches 96 and backs it up with an above-average slider. His changeup has the potential to become a solid third pitch, and he has average command. He exhibited his competitiveness by gutting through nine starts and going 5-1, 1.44. With concerns about his health and signability--he possesses added leverage as a draft-eligible sophomore--it's unclear where Purke might go. He may have to re-establish his value in summer ball, as Anthony Ranaudo did a year ago after a disappointing spring at Louisiana State. He rebounded in the Cape Cod League and got a $2.55 million bonus from the Red Sox as the 39th pick.
3 101 New York Mets Logan Verrett RHP Baylor $425,000
Verrett positioned himself as a possible first-round pick with a strong performance in the Cape Cod League last summer. He hasn't quite pitched up to that standard this spring, though he did finish the regular season on a roll, not allowing an earned run in his final 21 innings. Verrett doesn't have an out pitch, but he has three solid offerings and mixes speeds and plans well. His best pitch is his slider, which generates some swings as misses. He has an average fastball, pitching at 88-92 mph and topping out at 94, though it lacks life. He gets more sink on his changeup. A 6-foot-3, 185-pounder, Verrett repeats his sound delivery well and throws strikes. Scouts also like the way he competes. Though he's athletic, he struggles to control the running game. While he showed a 93-95 mph fastball when he worked out of the bullpen as a freshman, Verrett has a future as a No. 3 starter.
3 108 Toronto Blue Jays John Stilson RHP Texas A&M $500,000
Stilson set a Texarkana (Texas) JC record by winning 12 games as a freshman in 2009, then led NCAA Division I in ERA (0.80) and ranked second in strikeout per nine inning (13.5) in his first season at Texas A&M last spring. He has made another successful transition this year, moving from the bullpen back into the rotation and serving as the Aggies' ace. His fastball ranges from 91-94 mph, and it touched 96 when he worked as a reliever. He has incredible feel for a dynamite changeup that outranks his heater as his best pitch. He throws a hard breaking ball, and he has the ability to vary the angle and shape of the pitch to make it a slider or a curveball. Six-foot-3 and 195 pounds, Stilson is a quality athlete who also starred in football and basketball in high school and played shortstop at Texarkana. He's an intense competitor who relishes the responsibility that comes with being a Friday starter or a closer. Stilson's delivery is the only reason he isn't mentioned with the top tier of college pitching prospects. He catapults off the mound and throws with some effort, but that doesn't prevent him from filling the strike zone. If the team that drafts him puts him back in the bullpen, he could be the first player from the 2011 draft to reach the majors. But Stilson has legitimate value as a No. 2 or 3 starter, and he'll probably get an initial opportunity to thrive in that role in pro ball.
3 109 St. Louis Cardinals C.J. McElroy Jr. OF Clear Creek HS, League City, Texas $510,000
The son of longtime big league reliever Chuck McElroy, outfielder C.J. McElroy draws comparisons to Michael Bourn. His plus-plus speed stands out both on the diamond and on the gridiron. A running back who ran for 1,523 yards and accounted for 28 touchdowns last fall, he signed a football scholarship to play wide receiver at Houston. He also finished seventh at the Texas 5-A track meet in the long jump. At 5-foot-9 and 165 pounds, McElroy won't have much power, but he has a solid righthanded stroke, good pitch-recognition skills and the ability to handle velocity. He's a big-time stolen base threat and covers a lot of ground in center field. His arm is below-average.
3 114 Cincinnati Reds Tony Cingrani LHP Rice $210,000
Tony Cingrani broke former big leaguer Tim Byrdak's single-season and career strikeout records at South Suburban (Ill.) JC, then followed Byrdak's path and transferred to Rice. After he posted an 8.59 ERA in six starts as a junior, the Owls overhauled Cingrani's delivery and moved him to the bullpen, and his transformation has been dramatic. The 6-foot-5, 205-pound lefthander has quickened his arm action and is staying more compact and on top of his pitches, and he's working at 92-94 mph and touching 97 with his fastball. He finished the regular season with a 1.92 ERA and 62 strikeouts in 52 innings. He pitches mostly off his heater, though the hope is that his below-average slider will improve once he gets more consistent innings in pro ball. He's one of the more attractive senior signs in the draft.
3 115 Atlanta Braves Kyle Kubitza 3B Texas State $261,000
His brother Austin was a seventh-round pick by the Pirates last year, and Kyle Kubitza should go in the same range this June. (Austin decided to attend Rice, where he has been the Owls' best pitcher as a freshman, and projects a possible first-rounder in 2013.) As a 6-foot-4, 190-pound lefthanded hitter with strength and athleticism, Kyle profiles well at third base. He offers power and patience at the plate, but scouts would like to see him maintain a consistent set-up rather than tinkering with his hitting mechanics. Likewise, they'd like to see more reliable defense at third base, where he made 22 errors in 55 regular-season games. He has the hands, arm and agility to play the hot corner if he can maintain his concentration.
4 122 Pittsburgh Pirates Colten Brewer RHP Canton (Texas) HS $240,000
Righthander Colten Brewer made a late push up draft boards. He usually works at 87-91 mph and touches 93 with his sinker, and he should add velocity as he fills out his 6-foot-4, 190-pound frame. Committed to Weatherford (Texas) JC, Brewer is a one-pitch guy at the moment who would have been a perfect draft-and-follow if that rule still existed.
4 138 Colorado Rockies Dillon Thomas OF Westbury Christian HS, Houston $300,000
Dillon Thomas is an all-bat player, but there are a handful of clubs that believe enough in the bat to select him in the early rounds. He's a 6-foot-1, 200-pound lefthanded hitter whose proponents think he will hit for high average and grow into some power potential. Those who aren't as bullish on him think his swing is long. His speed and first-base defense are well below average. He has committed to Texas A&M.
5 156 Kansas City Royals Patrick Leonard OF St. Thomas HS, Houston $600,000
Patrick Leonard hit a crucial three-run homer in the Texas state 5-A private school championship game, helping St. Thomas win the title, the second for coach Craig Biggio since he retired from the Astros in 2009. Power is the 6-foot-3, 200-pounder's carrying tool, though scouts wonder how it will play against better competition. He doesn't hit good velocity or breaking balls, and his righthanded stroke is long and features a big uppercut. While he has arm strength, he doesn't have the hands or actions to remain at shortstop. A below-average runner, he may have to move to first base or the outfield. A Georgia recruit, he's considered a difficult sign.
5 161 Milwaukee Brewers Michael Reed OF Leander (Texas) HS $500,000
Reed has created mixed opinions among Texas area scouts this spring. Those who buy into his strong 6-foot, 210-pound body and tools think he could fit in the second or third rounds, while others who worry about his lack of polish see him as more of a sixth- to 10th-rounder. His proponents think he profiles nicely as a right fielder who swings the bat with authority from the right side of the plate and backs up his raw power with plus speed and arm strength. Others think he has a mature, maxed-out frame and does everything with a lot of effort, and that he's a fringe to average runner. Reed also pitches, reaching 90 mph with his fastball, and he'll see action as a two-way player if he attends Mississippi. It may take second-round money to sign him away from Ole Miss, for whom his father Benton played football en route to a brief NFL career.
5 165 Los Angeles Angels Andrew Ray OF Northeast Texas CC $80,000
Andrew Ray sticks out mostly for his righthanded bat, as he hits for average with gap power. The 6-foot-1, 195-pounder has some arm strength but probably will move from third base to the outfield in pro ball. If he doesn't turn pro, he'll play at Louisiana State next year.
5 167 Detroit Tigers Brandon Loy SS Texas $212,000
One of the top defensive shortstops in the draft, Loy has enhanced his draft status with improved performance at the plate. His calling card is still his defense, which includes quick feet, solid range, sure hands and a strong arm. He makes all the routine plays as well as spectacular ones and rarely commits errors. In his first two years at Texas, the righthanded hitter batted .271 and was most notable at the plate for his bunting prowess. Loy led NCAA Division I with 25 sacrifices in 2009 and ranked fourth with 17 last year. He has been asked to bunt less this year, when he hit .327 in the regular season with 20 extra-base hits, nearly matching his previous career total of 21. The 6-foot, 170-pounder projects to have well below-average power with wood bats. He controls the strike zone well but sometimes tries to pull and lift pitches, which isn't his game. Loy has average speed and runs the bases well, though he won't be a big basestealing threat. He might be relegated to the bottom of a big league lineup, but his defensive prowess could make him a major league regular.
5 168 Colorado Rockies Taylor Featherston SS Texas Christian $144,900
Featherston was one of the heroes in Texas Christian's run to its first College World Series appearance last year, batting .389 with 16 RBIs in 11 NCAA tournament games. He led the Horned Frogs in hitting (.347), on-base percentage (.425) and runs (48) during the 2011 regular season and has a better bat than most middle infielders. A 6-foot-1, 185-pound righthanded hitter, he makes consistent contact and has enough pop to hit 10 homers in a big league season if he gets a little stronger and uses his legs better in his swing. He has average speed and good instincts on the bases. The question with Featherston is whether he can stay at shortstop. He has a strong arm and enough range but two different area scouts used the exact same phrase to describe his defense: "He plays shortstop like his hair is on fire." Featherston had 24 errors in 55 games, most coming when he rushed himself or tried to make an impossible play. He profiles well enough as an offensive second baseman but could sneak into the first three rounds to a team that believes he can settle down at short.
5 176 Atlanta Braves Nick DeSantiago C Blinn (Texas) JC $125,000
Nick DeSantiago's pretty line-drive swing from the left side of the plate and his arm strength give him intriguing potential as a catcher. The 6-foot, 200-pounder has a lot of work to do to remain behind the plate, as he has a slow release and iffy receiving skills.
6 188 Cleveland Indians Bryson Myles OF Stephen F. Austin State $112,500
Myles has put up some of the gaudiest numbers in college baseball this spring, leading NCAA Division I with 50 stolen bases and drawing Kirby Puckett comparisons while batting .413 and setting Stephen F. Austin State records for hits (92) and steals in a season and career. Built like a barrel at 6 feet and 225 pounds, Myles originally intended to play linebacker at Texas Christian but wound up spending the first two years of his college career in Weatherford (Texas) JC's baseball program. A righthanded hitter, he has quick hands and plenty of strength, but he employs an all-or-nothing swing that more advanced pitchers may be able to exploit. Despite his steal totals, Myles isn't a blazer. He has plus speed and good instincts on the bases, though he has been caught 13 times this spring. He's a fringy defender whose below-average arm relegates him to left field, so his bat and baserunning will have to carry him. Teams have passed him over in the draft for three straight years, but that won't happen again in 2011.
6 197 Detroit Tigers Tyler Collins OF Howard (Texas) JC $210,000
Collins, who started his college career at Baylor and is committed to Texas Christian for 2011, is a lefthanded hitter with plenty of bat speed and a knock for barreling the ball.
6 202 Boston Red Sox Miguel Pena LHP San Jacinto (Texas) JC $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.
7 225 Los Angeles Angels Abel Baker C Grayson County (Texas) CC $110,000
The state's other Juco World Series participant is Grayson County, whose top prospect is catcher Abel Baker. His bases-loaded triple broke open the regional championship game against Howard. Baker, who spent 2010 at Baylor, offers lefthanded power and decent catch-and-throw skills. His brother Aaron is a first baseman in the Pirates system, and their grandfather Jerry Mays played in two Super Bowls and was an all-American Football League performer as an offensive and defensive lineman.
8 243 Seattle Mariners Carson Smith RHP Texas State $215,000
After having little success as a freshman at Grayson County (Texas) CC in 2009, Smith has been the Southland Conference pitcher of the year in each of his two seasons at Texas State. He ended the regular season with 12 straight quality starts, lowering his ERA to 1.98 with 114 strikeouts in 95 innings. Though he has three pitches and has had success as a starter, scouts project Smith as a reliever because of his delivery. He slings the ball with a lot of effort while keeping his elbow low and close to his side, and doesn't appear suited to durability or command. Smith came down with shoulder tendinitis in the offseason and has pitched through shoulder issues this spring. He also has a high leg kick that provides deception. The 6-foot-5, 215-pounder has been clocked at 97 mph coming out of the bullpen last year, compared to 90-93 mph early in games and 88-92 mph later in 2010. His low arm angle does add sink to his fastball and his changeup, and his slider can be a swing-and-miss pitch at times.
8 257 Detroit Tigers Jason Krizan OF Dallas Baptist $50,000
Outfielder Jason Krizan's pure tools may not be spectacular, but his performance this spring has been. He set an NCAA Division I record with 37 doubles (breaking a mark shared by big leaguer Brad Hawpe, among others) and set a new Dallas Baptist standard with a 39-game hitting streak. At the end of the regular season, Krizan ranked first in D-I in hits (97) and doubles, second in OPS (1.255) and third in RBIs (76) and total bases (166). The 6-foot, 186-pounder makes consistent hard contact from the left side of the plate. He doesn't run well enough to play center field and may not have enough power to profile as a big league regular in right field, but he could provide nice value as a senior sign in the eighth to 10th round.
8 261 Chicago White Sox Ian Gardeck RHP Angelina (Texas) JC
In 2005, an unheralded pitcher transferred from an NCAA Division I program to Angelina JC and quickly blossomed into a top prospect. Gardeck has taken a similar path, and while he won't duplicate Clay Buchholz's rise and become a supplemental first-rounder, he has some of the best sheer arm strength in this draft. Gardeck didn't start pitching until his junior year at Crystal Lake (Ill.) South HS, and he occasionally touched 94 mph as a senior in 2009 and as a reliever at Dayton in 2010. The 6-foot-2, 225-pounder's velocity spiked when he pitched in the New England Collegiate League last summer, and he opened more eyes when he hit 98 mph in the fall after moving to Angelina. Because he's so new to pitching, Gardeck is still raw. Scouts don't like his arm action, which hampers his ability to throw strikes, as does his inability to maintain his arm slot. He pitched his way out of Angelina's rotation and into its bullpen this spring. He consistently pitches at 94-96 mph as a reliever. He'll show a mid-80s slider that's a wipeout pitch at times, but he struggles to harness it. With two pitches that grade at 70 on the 20-80 scouting scale at times but command that rates a 35, Gardeck's pro future also is in the bullpen. He'll attend Alabama if he doesn't turn pro.
9 288 Colorado Rockies Ross Stripling RHP Texas A&M
Righthander Ross Stripling was more of a football and basketball player at Carroll HS in Southlake until he broke his left leg as a senior. He got bored during his rehab and began fooling around on the mound with a cast on his leg. He went 14-0 in his first season as a pitcher, earned an academic scholarship to Texas A&M and joined the Aggies as a walk-on. He opened 2011 as their closer but since has become the best Sunday starter in college baseball, finishing the 2011 regular season tied with Texas' Taylor Jungmann for the NCAA Division I lead in wins at 12-2, 1.89. An athletic 6-foot-3 and 190 pounds, Stripling throws an 88-92 mph fastball from an over-the-top delivery. He spins his curveball for strikes and has a decent changeup. His stuff plays up when he comes out of the bullpen--he touches 94 mph and has a sharper curve--so that could be his destination in pro ball.
9 295 Cincinnati Reds Cole Green RHP Texas $90,000
The Tigers drafted Green in the fourth round last year after he won Big 12 Conference pitcher of the year honors, but he opted to return to Texas after turning down a reported $400,000. After shaking off a surprising shelling by Maryland in his first start of 2011, he has been just as effective this spring. The 6-foot, 210-pounder doesn't have a classic pro body or sexy stuff, but he competes and throws strikes every time he takes the mound. He pitches off his sinker, which sits at 88-92 mph and occasionally peaks at 94. His changeup grades out as his best offering and keeps lefthanders at bay, and he uses a late-breaking slider that runs from 79-82 mph. Green commands his pitches well, working in the bottom of the strike zone and generating groundballs. On pure stuff, he may project as no more than a middle reliever, but his feel for pitching may allow him to become a back-of-the-rotation starter. In part because he'll come at a discount as a college senior without much leverage, he should go around the fourth round again in 2011.
10 304 Arizona Diamondbacks Kyle Winkler RHP Texas Christian $240,000
With Matt Purke ailing, Winkler has replaced him as Texas Christian's ace. Hitters have a tough time squaring Winkler's pitches up, especially his 91-95 mph fastball with heavy sink. He has added velocity this spring, not only to his heater but also to his slider, which reaches the mid-80s. His breaking ball is more effective when he throws in the low 80s, and some scouts would like to see him break out the hard curveball he used in high school. His improved changeup gives him a solid third pitch that he should throw more often, and his command also has taken a step forward. If Winkler had ideal pitcher size rather than checking in at 5-foot-11 and 205 pounds, he'd be a mid-first-rounder. His delivery isn't the smoothest, but it's also deceptive and doesn't feature a terrible amount of effort. Scouts have noted his competitive streak for years, going back to when he led the U.S. national team to a gold medal at the 2006 Pan American Youth Championships with a 1.15 ERA.
10 319 Toronto Blue Jays Aaron Garza RHP Ball HS, Galveston, Texas
Righthander Aaron Garza is ultraprojectable. Six-foot-4 and 160 pounds, he's athletic and has an easy arm action. He's strongly committed to Houston, and scouts think he should attend college because his present stuff isn't ready for pro ball. His fastball sits at 85-88 mph and lacks life, and his secondary pitches (curveball, slider, changeup) are fringy. He earns high marks for his makeup.
10 325 Cincinnati Reds Brooks Pinckard RHP Baylor $125,000
Pinckard is one of the fastest runners in college baseball and has used his plus-plus speed to steal 60 bases in 66 attempts over three seasons. He ended the 2011 regular season tied for sixth in NCAA Division I with 31 swipes in 33 tries. He also plays a solid center field, though scouts see him as a slap hitter and are much more interested in what he can do on the mound. Pinckard has a consistent 92-96 mph fastball with life, and he didn't lose velocity when he moved into the rotation in the last month of the season. After relying on his heater as a reliever, he has made strides with his slider and now throws it at 82-84 mph, though it lacks consistency. He also has a changeup but hasn't used it often. A quality athlete at 6-foot-1 and 195 pounds, Pinckard could take off once he focuses on pitching. He redshirted in 2008 because he wasn't ready for Big 12 Conference competition and has pitched just 106 innings in three seasons, so he's still raw as a pitcher. He doesn't have much feel, so he struggles with walks and doesn't miss as many bats as someone with a mid-90s fastball should. His delivery doesn't help his command, as he has a short arm angle and slings the body from a low slot, and his future likely will be back in the bullpen. He declined to sign with the Cubs as a draft-eligible sophomore taken in the 18th round last year, and he should get picked about 15 rounds higher this June.
11 337 Washington Nationals Caleb Ramsey OF Houston
11 338 Cleveland Indians Luis DeJesus RHP Angelina (Texas) JC $100,000
11 354 Texas Rangers Connor Sadzeck RHP Howard (Texas) JC $350,000
Sadzeck consistently threw in the low 90s and topped out at 95 mph with good armside run on his fastball. Though he's 6-foot-6 and 200 pounds, he sacrifices downhill plane by using a drop-and-drive delivery. Of greater concern is his lack of command, as he has an easier time throwing strikes with his slider than his fastball. Projected as a reliever in pro ball, he'll head to Texas as a sophomore if he doesn't sign this summer.
12 362 Pittsburgh Pirates Candon Myles OF South Grand Prairie (Texas) HS $125,000
12 365 Baltimore Orioles Jason Coats OF Texas Christian
Coats had a banner 2010, setting a Texas Christian record with 99 hits, helping the Horned Frogs reach the College World Series for the first time and starring in the Cape Cod League. A strong encore might have carried him into the first round, but he has had a lackluster spring, leading scouts to wonder whether he has a true plus tool. After hitting .314 with wood bats on the Cape, he batted .324 with metal this season. His swing looked longer and his pitch recognition looked less sharp than it did a year ago. Six-foot-2 and 190 pounds, Coats has a sound approach and provides average raw power from the right side of the plate. His speed, arm strength and defense are fringy to average, so he fits best in left field. A team that envisions Coats becoming the .280/20-homer hitter he looked like a year ago could grab him in the second or third round, but he no longer figures to go higher than that.
12 387 San Francisco Giants Kelby Tomlinson SS Texas Tech
Shortstop Kelby Tomlinson starred for two years at Seward County (Kan.) CC and then in the Jayhawk League last summer, where he rated as the top position prospect and led Liberal to the National Baseball Congress World Series championship. His speed is his only plus tool, but he's a steady defender at short and has a patient approach at the plate. A 6-foot-3, 175-pound righthanded hitter, he'll never have much pop and will need to get stronger so pitchers won't pound him inside in pro ball.
13 397 Washington Nationals Casey Kalenkosky 1B Texas State
Kalenkosky hit 20 homers in two seasons at Cisco (Texas) JC and nearly matched that total during the regular season, tying the Texas State record with 18. The 6-foot, 195-pound righthanded hitter's power will have to carry him, however. He lacks the pitch recognition to hit for a high average and is a below-average runner and defender. He does have arm strength and has seen brief action as a catcher.
13 409 Toronto Blue Jays Matt Dean 3B The Colony (Texas) HS $737,500
Dean wasn't at his best on the showcase circuit last summer, but he redeemed himself with a strong spring and established himself as the best prep third-base prospect in the draft. Few high school players can match his batting-practice fireworks. With his bat speed, the loft in his righthanded swing and the room to add strength to his 6-foot-2, 190-pound frame, he projects to have plus power while hitting for a solid average. Dean has average speed but figures to lose a step as he fills out. He gets the job done at shortstop and has an above-average arm, but he'll move to the hot corner after he either turns pro or attends Texas. As with most coaches' sons--he plays for his father Martin at The Colony HS--Dean earns praise for his work ethic and competitiveness. His strong commitment to the Longhorns may make him difficult to sign.
13 415 Cincinnati Reds Nick Fleece RHP Texas A&M
Righthander Nick Fleece spent his first year at Texas A&M as a reserve outfielder before finding a niche in the bullpen. He flashed arm strength in the past and the Mariners drafted him in the 27th round last June, but coaches and scouts questioned his work ethic because he carried close to 250 pounds on his 6-foot-3 frame. He has looked like a different guy this spring, dropping to 215 pounds and operating at 90-92 mph with his fastball, peaking at 95. He works off his fastball, which has good sinking life, and picks up deception from his funky arm action. He always has filled the strike zone, and his slider has improved, though it still gets slurvy at times. As a senior sign, he'll come at a discount.
14 430 Houston Astros Gandy Stubblefield RHP Lufkin (Texas) HS
Chris McFarland was supposed to be the main attraction at Lufkin HS this spring, but scouts came away more impressed with Gandy Stubblefield. He also upstaged Bryan Brickhouse, who entered the year as the state's top-rated pitching prospect, beating him with an 11-strikeout three-hitter in a mid-April matchup. Stubblefield is projectable at 6-foot-4 and 190 pounds, and he worked at 88-92 mph with a peak of 94 this spring. He also has promising velocity on his curveball, though it's inconsistent. A Texas A&M recruit, he still needs a lot of polish.
14 435 Los Angeles Angels Wayne Taylor C Memorial HS, Houston
15 469 Toronto Blue Jays Cody Glenn LHP Westbury Christian HS, Houston
16 485 Baltimore Orioles Mark Blackmar RHP Temple (Texas) JC $100,000
The son of PGA senior golfer Phil Blackmar, Mark is an athletic 6-foot-3, 215-pound righthander with a nice three-pitch mix. His cutter/slider is his best pitch, and he also fills the strike zone with a lively 87-91 mph fastball and a developing changeup.
16 488 Cleveland Indians Ryan Merritt LHP McLennan (Texas) CC $150,000
16 492 New York Mets Brad Marquez OF Odessa (Texas) HS $325,000
A shortstop from Odessa (Texas) HS, Marquez has electrifying speed, which helps him on both sides of the ball. At the plate, he shows a clean, line-drive stroke. His speed makes up for below-average power and he profiles as a leadoff hitter that might be best defensively at second base or center field. One of the best athletes available in the draft, Marquez rushed for 2,210 yards and 29 touchdowns as a high school senior, and he also was a Texas state finalist in the long jump. He has a football scholarship to play wide receiver at Texas Tech.
16 510 Tampa Bay Rays Brett McAfee SS Pine Tree HS, Longview, Texas
17 514 Arizona Diamondbacks Adam Choplick LHP Ryan HS, Denton, Texas
Lefthander Adam Choplick is a 6-foot-8, 245-pound power forward who made the Texas 4-A all-star team after averaging 17 points and 11 rebounds a game as a senior. He missed the 2010 baseball season after having Tommy John surgery and didn't return to the mound until this April. In his third start back, he needed just 71 pitches to throw a 16-strikeout perfect game. Choplick's fastball has sat at 89-91 mph this spring, and he should add velocity as he gets more experience and puts his elbow reconstruction further behind him. He throws with a high three-quarters delivery, so his heater arrives on a steep downward plane, though it also lacks life. His feel for his curveball is rudimentary, and he doesn't have much of a changeup. Unlike many big pitchers, Choplick has good body control and a fairly solid delivery. He has committed to Oklahoma, and has the raw athletic ability to develop into a premium draft pick in 2014 if he doesn't sign this summer.
17 525 Los Angeles Angels Hunter Lockwood C Bell HS, Hurst, Texas
An Oklahoma recruit, Lockwood led all Dallas-area players (including projected first-rounder Josh Bell) with 16 homers through late May. The 5-foot-11, 189-pounder has a lot of strength and bat speed from the right side of the plate. He has average arm strength but a slow release, and he'll have to improve significantly as a receiver to remain behind the plate.
18 547 Washington Nationals Nick Lee LHP Weatherford (Texas) JC
18 551 Milwaukee Brewers Chris McFarland SS Lufkin (Texas) HS $315,000
It's usually difficult to lure Rice recruits away from college, and it's unlikely a team will buy McFarland away from the Owls after a lackluster spring. He's a 6-foot-1, 195-pound righthanded hitter with solid tools across the board. He makes contact and projects to have gap power, and he's an average runner with a fringy arm who'll have to move from shortstop to second or third base.
18 556 Oakland Athletics Brent Powers LHP Sam Houston State
20 611 Milwaukee Brewers Brandon Williamson RHP Dallas Baptist
20 622 Boston Red Sox Zach Good LHP Grayson County (Texas) CC $140,000
Grayson County's best pitching prospect, lefthander Zach Good, threw eight shutout innings to beat McLennan 1-0 in the second round of the regionals. Long and lean at 6-foot-4 and 185 pounds, he has bounced back from Tommy John surgery in high school to show a 90-91 mph fastball and feel for a curveball. His command is still a work in progress.
20 623 San Diego Padres Chris Haney RHP Dallas Baptist
21 635 Baltimore Orioles Jose Rivera RHP Hill (Texas) JC
21 637 Washington Nationals Todd Simko LHP Texas A&M-Corpus Christi
21 639 Chicago Cubs Andrew McKirahan LHP Texas
21 643 Florida Marlins Chase Wier RHP Stephen F. Austin State
22 668 Cleveland Indians Matthew Reckling RHP Rice
Cingrani's teammate at Rice, righthander Matthew Reckling, has made a similar leap forward but won't be as easy to sign away from the Owls. He's a top student with one year of eligibility remaining, and the team's stadium is named after his grandparents, Tommy (a former Rice player) and Isla, the facility's lead donors. Reckling pitched just 16 innings in 2010, when he battled command issues and posted a 6.32 ERA, but emerged as the Owls' Saturday starter this spring. His stuff improved after Rice eliminated recoil in his delivery, and the 6-foot-4, 205-pounder now pitches with a low-90s fastball and a hard curveball. Reckling didn't begin pitching until his senior year of high school, and his command still needs work.
22 677 Detroit Tigers Tommy Collier RHP San Jacinto (Texas) JC
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.
22 691 Philadelphia Phillies Matt Holland OF Texas A&M-Corpus Christi
24 732 New York Mets Tant Shepherd 1B Texas
24 734 Los Angeles Dodgers Matt Shelton RHP Sam Houston State
24 739 Toronto Blue Jays David Rollins LHP San Jacinto (Texas) JC
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.
25 779 New York Yankees Adam Smith RHP Texas A&M $157,500
Smith looks the part of a big league third baseman with his 6-foot-3, 200-pound frame, raw righthanded power and arm strength. But he just hasn't hit consistently, batting .267 during his first two years and slumping to .209 this spring after missing the start of the season while recovering from Tommy John surgery. If he doesn't figure out how to make more consistent contact, he eventually could wind up on the mound in pro ball.
26 809 New York Yankees Jordan Foley RHP The Colony (Texas) HS
27 812 Pittsburgh Pirates Ryan Hornback C San Jacinto (Texas) JC
27 816 Kansas City Royals Lee Clubb OF Iowa Park (Texas) HS
27 818 Cleveland Indians Evan Frazar SS Galveston (Texas) JC
28 848 Cleveland Indians Tyler Nurdin LHP Temple (Texas) JC
Nurdin is a 6-foot-3, 200-pound lefthander with more arm strength (his fastball touches 93 mph) but less feel and command.
28 851 Milwaukee Brewers BreShon Kimbrell C Mesquite (Texas) HS
Kimbell has a big league body at 6-foot-2 and 210 pounds, and though he only has been catching for a year, he has a little more arm strength and is a little more advanced than Lockwood. That said, Kimbell still has a lot of work to do behind the plate. A righthanded hitter with intriguing power potential, he has committed to Louisiana Tech.
29 894 Texas Rangers Nick Sawyer RHP Howard (Texas) JC
Sawyer is just 5-foot-10 and 180 pounds, but he has a lightning-quick arm that produces 94-96 mph fastballs. He has committed to Oklahoma for his sophomore season.
29 896 Atlanta Braves Chad Comer C Texas-Arlington
30 918 Colorado Rockies John Curtiss RHP Carroll HS, Southlake, Texas
Best known as a football power that has produced a half-dozen NFL players, Carroll High also has had four pitchers drafted in the previous four years. Curtiss will likely be the fifth in five drafts, though scouts think he's headed to college, as are most of the top high school pitchers in the Lone Star State this year. A top student who has committed to Texas, Curtiss is a projectable 6-foot-4, 190-pounder with a quick arm. He works from 89-93 mph and touches 95 with his fastball, which features good sink. He also flashes a plus slider and an effective changeup. Scouts praise his intelligence and competitiveness. The only real knock against Curtiss is that he throws across his body, but his motion adds deception without compromising his ability to throw strikes. If he becomes a Longhorn as expected, he could blossom into a first-rounder in 2014.
30 921 Chicago White Sox Brandon Parrent LHP Texas A&M $100,000
30 931 Philadelphia Phillies Mike Marshall 1B Lubbock Christian (Texas)
31 943 Florida Marlins Kenny Jackson 3B Texas A&M
31 955 Cincinnati Reds Erik Miller RHP Texas Christian $100,000
32 990 Tampa Bay Rays Ryan Turner RHP Tarleton State (Texas)
Righthander Ryan Turner already has been drafted three times, twice by the Rays--in the 22nd round out of high school in 2007 and in the 30th round out of Midland (Texas) JC in 2008--and by the Braves in the 49th round out of McLennan (Texas) CC last year. He missed all of 2009 recovering from rotator-cuff surgery, but is back to throwing 88-92 mph with his fastball and complementing it with a good slider. He uses his 6-foot-5, 195-pound frame to throw the ball downhill. He's the grandson of Gerald Turner, who scouts for the Braves and is one of the winningest coaches in Texas high school baseball history.
32 991 Philadelphia Phillies Greg Herbst RHP St. Mary's (Texas)
33 994 Arizona Diamondbacks Anthony Banda LHP Sinton (Texas) HS
33 996 Kansas City Royals Abel Gonzales LHP Rice

36 1092 New York Mets Ryan Hutson 1B Texas-San Antonio
37 1114 Arizona Diamondbacks Elroy Urbina LHP Incarnate Word (Texas)
37 1117 Washington Nationals Derrick Bleeker RHP Howard (Texas) JC
Bleeker got only 15 at-bats and didn't pitch as a freshman in Arkansas in 2010, then opened eyes by touching 97 mph during fall practice at Howard. He prefers hitting and playing the outfield to pitching, however, and was hard to see this spring because he worked just 13 innings, when his fastball sat at 92-93 mph. The 6-foot-5, 220 pounder throws strikes and flashes a hard slider, but he doesn't miss many bats because he doesn't get much angle on his pitches. Scouts question his competitive fire and think he'll attend North Carolina rather than turn pro.
37 1119 Chicago Cubs Steven Maxwell RHP Texas Christian
Texas Christian's entire weekend rotation will get drafted, with righthander Steven Maxwell following Matt Purke and Kyle Winkler. A fifth-year senior who turned down the Twins as a 12th-round pick after winning Mountain West Conference pitcher of the year honors in 2010, Maxwell succeeds by throwing strikes with a 90-91 mph sinker that maxes out at 93, and a solid slider. The 6-foot-1, 192-pounder had Tommy John surgery and missed a month this spring with biceps soreness.
37 1120 Houston Astros Steve Martin RHP Texas A&M
37 1124 Los Angeles Dodgers Reid Redman 3B Texas Tech
37 1133 San Diego Padres Cody Semler SS Allen (Texas) HS
38 1145 Baltimore Orioles Jerome Pena 2B Texas Christian
38 1159 Toronto Blue Jays Nico Taylor OF Northwood (Texas)
39 1173 Seattle Mariners Chris Andreas OF Sam Houston State
39 1176 Kansas City Royals Garrett Mattlage SS West HS, Stinnett, Texas
39 1179 Chicago Cubs Ricky Jacquez RHP Franklin HS, El Paso
Inch for inch, Jacquez is the hardest thrower in the 2011 draft. Though he's just 5-foot-9 and 160 pounds, Jacquez is a gifted athlete with a quick arm capable of producing 92-94 mph fastballs and touching 97. He also has a hammer curveball, and the combination allowed him to post a 20-strikeout game in March. A dual citizen who grew up playing Little League baseball in Mexico, Jacquez also has proven himself against better competition with Team USA. He was part of the 16-and-under team that took the gold medal at the 2009 World Youth Championship, winning two starts as a pitcher and also playing regularly at first base. There's effort in his delivery, but it's not excessive. He could stand to add life to his fastball and pitch down in the strike zone more often. As intriguing as Jacquez's arm is, he may be difficult to sign away from his commitment to Texas. The Longhorns recruited him primarily as a pitcher but also could give him some playing time in the middle infield.
40 1208 Cleveland Indians Matt Eureste SS St. Pius X HS, Houston
40 1210 Houston Astros Buddy Lamothe RHP San Jacinto (Texas) JC
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.
40 1220 St. Louis Cardinals Kyle Arnsberg C McLennan (Texas) CC
40 1226 Atlanta Braves Jacoby Almaraz 3B San Jacinto (Texas) JC
41 1242 New York Mets Mark Picca LHP Texas-Arlington
41 1259 New York Yankees Jeremy Rathjen OF Rice
One of the reasons pitchers have refused to challenge Rice star Anthony Rendon this spring is that the Owls lost their cleanup hitter, Jeremy Rathjen, when he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in mid-March. He projected as a top-five-rounds pick before he got hurt, and the injury should make him all but unsignable. Rice was able to redshirt him, so he'll still have negotiating leverage as a fourth-year junior in 2012. An athletic 6-foot-6, 205-pounder, Rathjen had gotten stronger and was making more consistent contact before he went down. He still has room to fill out more and develop more power. A plus runner, he plays a fine center field and has a decent arm.
41 1261 Philadelphia Phillies Austin Dicharry RHP Texas
Several college pitchers expected to rank among the state's top prospects instead lost most or all of the season to arm problems: Texas Christian's Kaleb Merck (out with Tommy John surgery), Houston's Jared Ray (recovery from shoulder surgery), Texas' Austin Dicharry (diminished command after coming back from shoulder tendinitis) and Texas A&M's Ross Hales (lost his mechanics while rehabbing a shoulder injury).
42 1282 Boston Red Sox Derek O'Dell 3B Canyon (Texas) HS
42 1289 New York Yankees Kevin Cornelius SS Weatherford (Texas) HS
43 1299 Chicago Cubs Jay Calhoun RHP Second Baptist HS, Houston
43 1301 Milwaukee Brewers Clint Wilson RHP Navarro (Texas) JC
43 1314 Texas Rangers Kaleb Merck RHP Texas Christian
Several college pitchers expected to rank among the state's top prospects instead lost most or all of the season to arm problems: Texas Christian's Kaleb Merck (out with Tommy John surgery), Houston's Jared Ray (recovery from shoulder surgery), Texas' Austin Dicharry (diminished command after coming back from shoulder tendinitis) and Texas A&M's Ross Hales (lost his mechanics while rehabbing a shoulder injury). Merck hit 96 mph in the Cape Cod League last summer, albeit with a max-effort delivery.
43 1315 Cincinnati Reds Ty Washington 2B Plano (Texas) East HS $300,000
Area scouts like Washington's plus speed, athleticism and makeup but wish he were bigger than 5-foot-9 and 160 pounds. He has the potential to hit for average, though he'll probably never have much power. He has good actions at shortstop but may lack enough arm to stay there, which could lead to a move to second base or center field. Washington has committed to both Oklahoma and San Jacinto (Texas) JC.
43 1320 Tampa Bay Rays Stayton Thomas RHP Texas
44 1330 Houston Astros Blake Ford RHP Lamar

49 1498 Minnesota Twins Drake Roberts 2B Brenham (Texas) HS
49 1499 New York Yankees Tyler Mapes RHP Navarro (Texas) JC
With a roster that includes 13 players with NCAA Division I commitments for 2012, Navarro reached the Junior College World Series for the first time in 53 years. The Bulldogs' best prospect is righthander Tyler Mapes, who pitched at Navy in 2010. A 6-foot-1, 200-pounder, he throws an 89-93 mph fastball, a good changeup and a slurvy breaking ball. He has committed to Tulane for 2012.
50 1502 Pittsburgh Pirates Zech Lemond RHP Waltrip HS, Houston
50 1520 St. Louis Cardinals Tyler Sibley 2B Texas State
50 1529 Tampa Bay Rays Ian Tomkins C Abilene Christian (Texas)
