1 909 Houston Astros John Neely RHP Texas Tech Texas
2 910 Minnesota Twins Bryan Santy C Washington Wash.
3 911 Seattle Mariners Mike Yastrzemski OF Vanderbilt Tenn.
Yastrzemski is the grandson of Hall of Famer Carl and son of Mike. He had a solid junior season as a grinder with good bat-to-ball skills. He is at least an average runner and has instincts for the game, owing to his bloodlines. He has no carrying tool and might be a better fit as a senior sign.
4 912 Baltimore Orioles Anthony Vega OF Manhattan N.Y.
5 913 Kansas City Royals Ethan Chapman OF Cal State San Bernardino Calif.
6 914 Chicago Cubs Izaac Garsez OF College of Idaho Idaho
7 915 San Diego Padres Jacob Robson OF Massey SS, Windsor, Ont. Ontario
8 916 Pittsburgh Pirates Chase McDowell RHP Rice Texas
9 917 Miami Marlins David Cruz C Miami (no school) Fla.
10 918 Colorado Rockies Trent Blank RHP Baylor Texas
11 919 Oakland Athletics Chris Wolfe SS Grambling State La.
12 920 New York Mets Dustin Cook RHP Hargrave HS, Huffman, Texas Texas
13 921 Chicago White Sox Jake Brown SS Kansas State Kan.
14 922 Cincinnati Reds Kyle Wren OF Georgia Tech Ga.
The son of Braves GM Frank Wren, Kyle Wren is a 5-foot-10, 166-pound speedster who was having an iffy sophomore season. He's 21 and eligible, and scouts said he's lost some speed from his high school days, though he's still a 65/70 runner on the 20-80 scale. He's an average defender with decent arm strength but little pop to speak of, and he needs to be a more efficient basestealer.
15 923 Cleveland Indians Josh Lester SS Columbus (Ga.) HS Ga.
16 924 Washington Nationals R.C. Orlan LHP North Carolina N.C.
A key piece to North Carolina's bullpen, Orlan had a little bit of interest as a Virginia high schooler in 2009 and was drafted in the 44th round by the Dodgers. Scouts believed he could become a good lefty reliever or specialist, and he's become just that after three years with the Tar Heels. In 36 appearances (54 innings) he was 8-1, 2.01 with 62 strikeouts and 10 walks. He pitches with an 88-90 mph fastball that can touch 91-92. Despite being 6-feet, he pitches downhill fairly well. He mixes in a good, hard-breaking curveball and a rare changeup.
17 925 Toronto Blue Jays Devin Pearson OF Carmel (Calif.) HS Calif.
18 926 Los Angeles Dodgers Trent Giambrone SS King HS, Metairie, La. La.
19 927 Los Angeles Angels Nic Dellatorre LHP St. John's River (Fla.) JC Fla.
20 928 San Francisco Giants Michael Blanchard OF Austin Peay State Tenn.
Blanchard is a premium runner whose feel for hitting is short; he struck out 57 times in 234 at-bats. Despite his top-of-the-scale speed, Blanchard stole just 15 bases this spring.
21 929 Atlanta Braves Casey Kalenkosky 1B Texas State Texas
22 930 St. Louis Cardinals Kyle Helisek LHP Villanova Pa.
23 931 Boston Red Sox Justin Taylor RHP Farmville (N.C.) Central HS N.C.
Committed to East Carolina, Taylor is a raw, two-sport athlete who also lettered in basketball. He has a good frame at 6-foot-4, 190 pounds and solid athleticism. Some effort in his delivery leads to concerns about his chances of starting, but he has the makings of two good pitches. His fastball sits 88-92 mph, but can touch 94 and he has a decent breaking ball in his slider. It's a slurvy pitch now, but it has good spin and a chance to develop into a better offering. Like most high school arms, his changeup is a work-in-progress.
24 932 Tampa Bay Rays Michael Williams C Kentucky Ky.
25 933 Arizona Diamondbacks Chase Stevens RHP Oklahoma State Okla.
26 934 Detroit Tigers Preston Jamison LHP South Mountain (Ariz.) CC Ariz. $100,000
27 935 Milwaukee Brewers Jono Armold LHP Flagler (Fla.) Fla.
28 936 Texas Rangers Barrett Serrato OF Purdue Ind.
29 937 New York Yankees Raph Rhymes OF Louisiana State La.
Rhymes has hit his way up draft boards and to the Southeastern Conference's player of the year award. Originally cut from LSU's program, he transferred to LSU-Eunice JC, helping the team win the Division II NJCAA championship. He transferred back to LSU after that one season and has done nothing but hit since arriving, though he did have a detour for Tommy John surgery in the middle. He also gave up his scholarship this year so the Tigers could recruit other players. The 6-foot, 180-pound righthanded hitter has a poor profile if he's just a left fielder, though some scouts would like to try him back at second base, where he's dabbled in the past. He's short to the ball, selective and strong enough to drive the ball consistently, resulting in a national-best .469 average. His .458 mark in SEC play was more than 100 points better than his closest pursuer.
30 938 Philadelphia Phillies Jordan Kipper RHP Central Arizona JC Ariz.
