1 1059 Houston Astros Jimmy Sinatro C Skyline HS, Sammamish, Wash. Wash.
2 1060 Minnesota Twins Jared Wilson RHP UC Santa Barbara Calif.
3 1061 Seattle Mariners Tyler Krieger SS Northview HS, Johns Creek, Ga. Ga.
4 1062 Baltimore Orioles Duke Porter LHP Miami (No school) Fla.
5 1063 Kansas City Royals Tyler Joyner LHP East Carolina N.C.
6 1064 Chicago Cubs Ben Carhart 3B Stetson Fla.
Smallish infielder Ben Carhart was once again the team's top hitter and should be a solid organizational player with gap power and good arm strength.
7 1065 San Diego Padres Wynton Bernard OF Niagara N.Y.
8 1066 Pittsburgh Pirates Jackson McClelland RHP East Valley HS, Redlands, Calif. Calif.
9 1067 Miami Marlins Chad Christensen OF Nebraska Neb.
Christensen projects as an outfielder in pro ball and Nebraska planned on playing him there this year, but the Cornhuskers eventually needed him back at shortstop. He got off to a hot start at the plate but slumped late, leading to questions about his bat, but he does have bat speed and some righthanded pop. The 6-foot-3, 206-pounder lacks the arm strength to play shortstop at the next level, but his plus speed gives him the chance to play center field. His athleticism and makeup could make him a utilityman.
10 1068 Colorado Rockies Justin Solomon 2B Piedra Vista HS, Farmington, N.M. N.M.
11 1069 Oakland Athletics Brett Sunde C Bishop Foley HS, Madison Heights, Mich. Mich.
12 1070 New York Mets Brad Markey RHP Santa Fe (Fla.) JC Fla.
Georgia Tech could have used 5-foot-11, 175-pound Markey this year; he transferred after tossing five innings for the Yellow Jackets as a sophomore. He was the workhorse for an intriguing staff at Santa Fe (Fla.) JC, touching 94 mph with a generally average fastball. He commanded the pitch as well as his curveball. He walked just nine in 87 innings. Most likely, he'll make good on his commitment to Virginia Tech.
13 1071 Chicago White Sox Kyle Martin RHP Texas A&M Texas
14 1072 Cincinnati Reds Mike Sheppard RHP Seton Hall Prep, West Orange, N.J. N.J.
15 1073 Cleveland Indians Nick Hamilton SS Kent State Ohio
16 1074 Washington Nationals Cory Bafidis LHP Texas Wesleyan Texas
17 1075 Toronto Blue Jays Devyn Rivera RHP California Baptist Calif.
18 1076 Los Angeles Dodgers Austin Cowen C Western Illinois Ill.
19 1077 Los Angeles Angels Pedro Pizarro C Byrd HS, Shreveport, La. La.
20 1078 San Francisco Giants Danny Grazzini RHP San Mateo (Calif.) JC Calif.
21 1079 Atlanta Braves Matt Creech SS Colquitt County HS, Moultrie, Ga. Ga.
22 1080 St. Louis Cardinals Ben O'Shea LHP Tampa Fla.
An unsigned 10th-rounder of the White Sox last June, O'Shea was set to go to Maryland but didn't qualify academically and wound up at Division II Tampa. He pitched well, going 7-2, 2.34 with just 13 walks in 92 innings. He's a fastball/changeup lefty whose fastball sits in the upper 80s and at times ranges from 90-92 mph. His durable 6-foot-6, 255-pound body and average changeup are other assets.
23 1081 Boston Red Sox Pat Delano RHP Braintree (Mass.) HS Mass.
24 1082 Tampa Bay Rays Kris Carlson RHP Colorado Mesa Colo.
25 1083 Arizona Diamondbacks Robbie Buller RHP Houston Baptist Texas
26 1084 Detroit Tigers Jacob Kapstein C Tiverton (R.I.) HS R.I.
27 1085 Milwaukee Brewers Jose Sermo SS Bethany (Kan.) Kan.
With a strong, athletic 6-foot, 190-pound frame, Sermo looks the part of a future pro. He's a switch-hitter with a nice stroke from bothsides of the plate. An erratic defender at shortstop, he lacks quickness and will have to move to third base or right field at the next level. Some scouts wonder if his cannon arm might be best suited to the mound. The Nationals drafted Sermo in the 49th round out of a Puerto Rico high school in 2009, after which he spent two years at Yakima Valley (Wash.) CC.
28 1086 Texas Rangers Brad Stone LHP Ardrey Kell HS, Charlotte N.C.
29 1087 New York Yankees Kyle Farmer SS Georgia Ga.
Farmer had a solid career at Georgia, setting a school record for fielding percentage by a shortstop. He's a capable, surehanded infielder with solid athleticism who profiles best as a utility infielder. The 6-foot, 195-pounder had a solid junior season but hit just .211 with wood in the Cape, and likely lacks the power to be an everyday third baseman. He's more of a gap hitter who needs to be a bit more selective after drawing just eight walks as a junior. He's a below-average runner who can play shortstop as a reserve but likely is not an everyday option as a pro. Some scouts would like to try him behind the plate.
30 1088 Philadelphia Phillies Steven Wilson RHP Dakota Ridge HS, Littleton, Colo. Colo.
