1 639 Houston Astros Marc Wik OF Chabot (Calif.) JC Calif.
2 640 Minnesota Twins Bo Altobelli C Texas Tech Texas
3 641 Seattle Mariners Scott DeCecco LHP South Carolina-Upstate S.C.
4 642 Baltimore Orioles Julian Service OF Sinclair SS, Whitby, Ont. Ontario
Service has a physical frame at 6-foot-3 and 195 pounds. He's a solid-average runner right now and projects best as a right fielder because of his potential with the bat and his well above-average arm strength. Service shows good bat speed and is beginning to show more power this spring. He projects to hit for average power as a pro. Service is considered signable and is committed to Northeast Texas CC.
5 643 Kansas City Royals Matt Strahm LHP Neosho County (Kan.) CC Kan. $100,000
Strahm helped pitch Neosho County to its first Junior College World Series since 2003, leading national juco players in strikeouts (124 in 92 innings) and complete games (10) through the regional playoffs. A lanky 6-foot-3, 170-pound lefty with a long wingspan, Strahm is extremely projectable and still growing into his velocity. His fastball sat at 85-88 mph early in the season and registered as high as 92 later in the spring. His slurvy breaking ball and changeup are decent secondary pitches that are showing improvement. The Nebraska recruit has a clean delivery enables him to control all his offerings well.
6 644 Chicago Cubs Steve Perakslis RHP Maine Maine
While his teammate Jeff Gibbs has the arm strength and size of a righthanded prospect, Perakslis was the one that had better results for Maine. He's solidly built at 6-foot-1, 185 pounds, and has a solid fastball that gets up to 93. He didn't show a true breaking ball this year, but that may have been hampered by a blister he had this spring. His changeup is average.
7 645 San Diego Padres Matt Chabot RHP Riverside (Calif.) CC Calif.
8 646 Pittsburgh Pirates Jordan Steranka 3B Penn State Pa.
9 647 Miami Marlins Hayden Fox LHP Oakland Mich.
10 648 Colorado Rockies Rayan Gonzalez RHP Bethune-Cookman Fla.
11 649 Oakland Athletics Tyler Hollstegge RHP UNC Greensboro N.C.
12 650 New York Mets Gary Ward LHP Bethel (Tenn.) Tenn.
13 651 Chicago White Sox Adam Lopez RHP Virginia Military Institute Va.
14 652 Cincinnati Reds Jordan Remer LHP San Francisco Calif.
15 653 Cleveland Indians Joe Sever 2B Pepperdine Calif.
The nephew of football Hall of Famer John Elway, Sever is a hard-nosed player who was a standout hockey player when he was younger. Sever's average has jumped nearly 100 points, from .279 as a sophomore to .370 as a junior, as he has blossomed into the top run producer in Pepperdine's lineup. Still, scouts aren't in love with his tools. His 6-foot, 205-pound build evokes Dan Uggla, but he projects for below-average power. He's an aggressive hitter who handles fastballs as well as curveballs and projects as an average hitter. His infield actions are somewhat stiff and his range is suspect, but he makes up for it with his sound instincts and aggressiveness. He has fringe-average speed and arm strength, and his defense also has a chance to be average.
16 654 Washington Nationals Austin Chubb C Florida Southern Fla.
17 655 Toronto Blue Jays Colton Turner LHP Texas State Texas
Turner doesn't do anything flashy, but he's a lefthander who can throw three pitches for strikes. The 6-foot-2, 185-pounder can pitch to both sides of the plate with an 87-88 mph fastball that occasionally hits 91 mph but could use some more life. He also has a mid-70s slurve with 2-to-8 break and a changeup with some fade. While he fills the zone, he'll have to improve the location of his pitches in pro ball.
18 656 Los Angeles Dodgers Jacob Scavuzzo OF Villa Park (Calif.) HS Calif.
19 657 Los Angeles Angels Pat Lowery RHP Columbia N.Y.
20 658 San Francisco Giants Ben Turner C Missouri Mo.
21 659 Atlanta Braves Jeremy Fitzgerald RHP Tennessee Wesleyan Tenn.
22 660 St. Louis Cardinals Joe Almaraz 1B Angelina (Texas) JC Texas
23 661 Boston Red Sox Jake Davies 1B Georgia Tech Ga.
Davies has a bad body at 6 feet, 225 pounds, but the younger brother of ex-big leaguer Kyle Davies had a strong finish to his college career, winning MVP honors at the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament. He's a below-average athlete and defender but has lefthanded power and a polished offensive approach.
24 662 Tampa Bay Rays Jon Weaver RHP Central Michigan Mich.
25 663 Arizona Diamondbacks Rudy Flores 1B Florida International Fla.
26 664 Detroit Tigers Alex Phillips LHP Kentucky Ky.
27 665 Milwaukee Brewers Austin Blaski RHP Marietta (Ohio) Ohio
Blaski won the championship game and most outstanding player honors at the NCAA Division III World Series in 2011. He threw six shutout innings in Marietta's opener at this year's World Series, a victory that gave him the D-III lead in wins (13), ERA (0.88) and starts (15). A 6-foot-4, 200-pounder, Blaski does a nice job of throwing his 88-92 mph fastball on a downhill plane. He throws strikes with his tight slider and changeup, and he's more than just a typical D-III senior sign.
28 666 Texas Rangers Jake Lemoine RHP Bridge City (Texas) HS Texas
29 667 New York Yankees Jimmy Reed LHP Maryland Md.
30 668 Philadelphia Phillies Drew Anderson RHP Galena HS, Reno, Nev. Nev.
