1 1089 Houston Astros Mike Martinez 3B Florida International Fla.
Florida International's young team leaned on veteran three-hole hitter Mike Martinez, whose performance should give him a shot at pro ball. He's a bad-bodied 6-foot, 215-pounder with decent arm strength who has played a passable third base this spring for the Golden Panthers. His offensive numbers with the BBCOR bats (.393/.498/.597 in 2012, 15 HR in 2011) stem from his short swing and solid strength.
2 1090 Minnesota Twins Brandon Bayardi OF Nevada-Las Vegas Nev.
3 1091 Seattle Mariners Trey Wingenter RHP Jones HS, Madison, Ala. Ala.
Auburn has a loaded recruiting class and could lose several top-tier signees such as David Dahl, Addison Russell and Colin Rodgers. They hope to hold on to the projectable, 6-foot-7, 190-pound Wingenter. Scouts can dream on him, and they've seen 92 mph radar-gun readings. More commonly he reaches 88-89, and his curveball flashes good shape and some power in the mid-70s. His arm works well, and he should add power to his stuff as his thin body fills out.
4 1092 Baltimore Orioles Peter Irvin LHP Skagit Valley (Wash.) CC Wash.
5 1093 Kansas City Royals Raphael Andrades OF Lincoln HS, Tallahassee, Fla. Fla.
6 1094 Chicago Cubs Sly Edwards OF St. Brendan HS, Miami Fla.
7 1095 San Diego Padres Mac Seibert 2B Tate HS, Cantonment, Fla. Fla.
8 1096 Pittsburgh Pirates Brody Russell 2B Centennial HS, Bakersfield, Calif. Calif.
Scouts regard Russell as a good baseball player, but his tools might not be enough to persuade a club to buy him out of his commitment to Fresno State. He plays shortstop now and owns a plus arm, but the consensus is that he will have to move to second base or center field in pro ball, perhaps making him a utilityman down the line. He has fringy speed that plays up because of his instincts. At the plate, Russell has quick hands, an aggressive approach and a slight uppercut. He's a gap-to-gap hitter with occasional pull power, and he projects as a fringe-average hitter with below-average power.
9 1097 Miami Marlins Kendall Graveman RHP Mississippi State Miss.
Graveman stepped into the weekend rotation this season and was an excellent wing man for ace Chris Stratton, complementing Stratton's power approach with average velocity on his two-seamer, usually sitting in the 87-89 mph range. Graveman doesn't miss a lot of bats, but he had given up only one homer all year. He has a decent slider and average to plus changeup with similar sink as his two-seam fastball. His best attribute is his smooth, easy delivery, which contributes to his excellent control (19 walks in 86 innings).
10 1098 Colorado Rockies Kevin Bradley SS Hopewell Valley Central HS, Pennington, N.J. N.J.
11 1099 Oakland Athletics Conor Williams RHP/OF Bingham HS, South Jordan, Utah Utah
Williams should get drafted ahead of high school teammate Brady Lail because of his athleticism, two-way potential and arm strength. Utah is hoping Williams will get to campus and patrol its outfield next year, and he shows power potential with the bat, but pro scouts like him better on the mound. Utah would likely groom him to be a closer as well. He started pitching in the past year and shows intriguing arm strength, running his fastball up to 95 mph in short bursts. He flashes a tight breaking ball and will need to get more consistency and control. His arm strength is intriguing, as is his projectable 6-foot-3, 185-pound frame.
12 1100 New York Mets Donovan Walton SS Bishop Kelley HS, Tulsa Okla.
13 1101 Chicago White Sox Mitch Patishall RHP Pendleton (Ind.) Heights HS Ind.
14 1102 Cincinnati Reds Jarvis Flowers 2B Cy-Ranch HS, Cypress, Texas Texas
15 1103 Cleveland Indians Benny Suarez RHP Hill (Texas) JC Texas
16 1104 Washington Nationals Max Ungar C Smith Jewish Day School, Bethesda, Md. Md.
17 1105 Toronto Blue Jays Brian Cruz SS Galveston (Texas) JC Texas
18 1106 Los Angeles Dodgers Jose Vizcaino 3B Parker HS, San Diego Calif.
19 1107 Los Angeles Angels Kenny Hatcher RHP Dallas Baptist Texas
20 1108 San Francisco Giants Clint Terry LHP San Mateo (Calif.) JC Calif.
21 1109 Atlanta Braves Braden Bishop OF St. Francis HS, Mountain View, Calif. Calif.
St. Francis was loaded last year with Rays' supplemental first-round third baseman Tyler Goeddel, as well as later draft picks Richard Prigatano (now at Long Beach State) and Alex Blandino (now at Stanford). Bishop is a good athlete at 6-foot-1 and 180 pounds and had mild Division I interest as a wide receiver. Some scouts feel Bishop has above-average speed and can play center field with his plus arm. Those who like him say he'll be an average hitter. He projects as a doubles hitter with below-average home run power, though some scouts view him as more of a tweener, fourth-outfielder type. Regardless of how they grade his tools, all scouts agree that Bishop gets the most of his ability. Bishop is committed to Washington and reportedly has a high price tag, meaning it's likely he winds up on campus.
22 1110 St. Louis Cardinals Alex Swim C Elon N.C.
The 6-foot, 185-pound Swim has been an everyday player for the Phoenix since he walked on campus, starting 165 games in three seasons. He burst onto the scene as a freshman, hitting .310/.342/.403. His bat cooled as a sophomore, but he bounced back in 2012 by hitting .361/.402/.454 in 227 at-bats. His bat is light, but he handles it well. He is very difficult to strike out, fanning just 39 times in his career. Scouts take interest because he provides solid defense behind the plate. He has a strong arm that could improve with a shorter release. He runs a tick above-average and could be a fourth outfielder if he doesn't stick behind the plate.
23 1111 Boston Red Sox Miguel Rodriguez C UNC Charlotte N.C.
24 1112 Tampa Bay Rays Brett McAfee SS Panola (Texas) JC Texas
25 1113 Arizona Diamondbacks Andrew Barbosa LHP South Florida Fla.
26 1114 Detroit Tigers Clate Schmidt RHP Allatoona HS, Acworth, Ga. Ga.
Schmidt has contributed to the unpredictable spring for high school talent in Georgia, as scouts try to gauge how his stuff will play as a pro and how strong his commitment to Clemson is. He is his team's best pitcher and best hitter despite a slight 6-foot-1, 175-pound frame, playing shortstop or center field when he isn't on the mound. His athletic ability produces a quick arm and excellent velocity at times, with 92-96 mph readings on the showcase circuit last summer. Schmidt also has shown feel for a breaking ball, flashing a plus curveball and a Frisbee slider. He hasn't been physical enough to maintain his stuff over the full high school season, though. He velocity fell off to the 86-91 mph range this spring, and scouts complained that he threw too many breaking balls, further sapping his velocity and feel for his fastball. He could be a two-way player for Clemson, as he's an above-average runner with the ability to stay in the infield in college, and it will be interesting to see if a team will sign him away from the Tigers.
