1 1119 Houston Astros Michael Dimock RHP Wake Forest N.C.
2 1120 Minnesota Twins James Marvel RHP Campolindo HS, Moraga, Calif. Calif.
Marvel has a professional build at 6-foot-3 and 195 pounds. His fastball sits in the 90-92 mph range and he mixes in a curveball that has improved throughout the year and could be an above-average pitch in the future. He also has a developing changeup, though he hasn't needed a third pitch much in high school. Marvel has a good delivery and pitches with a quick tempo. He shows a good feel for pitching and scouts like him, but he's not likely to be drafted as high as his talent would dictate because of his solid commitment to Duke.
3 1121 Seattle Mariners Brett Lilek LHP Marion Catholic HS, Chicago Heights, Ill. Ill.
As a lefthander who could throw 90-92 mph, Lilek had achance to go in the early rounds of the 2012 draft. But he tweaked his biceps early on and spent most of the spring pitching at 86-89 mph. Scouts already worried about his health because they didn't like his arm action. The 6-foot-4, 185-pounder has an interesting breaking ball that varies from a curveball to a slider but lacks consistency, and he also has some deception to his changeup. He's ticketed for Arizona State.
4 1122 Baltimore Orioles Derrick Bleeker OF/RHP Arkansas Ark.
5 1123 Kansas City Royals Jake Newberry RHP Mira Mesa HS, San Diego Calif.
6 1124 Chicago Cubs Clayton Crum RHP Howard (Texas) JC Texas
Crum was the No. 2 pitcher behind Matt Purke at Klein (Texas) High before he blew out his elbow, had Tommy John surgery in 2009 and missed most of his senior season. He didn't get on the mound in his freshman year at Texas but emerged as the No. 2 starter at Howard this spring. The 6-foot-1, 185-pound Crum lacks consistency after hardly pitching the past two years, but at his best he'll throw a 90-94 mph fastball and flash a good slider and an average changeup. His fastball dips to 86-89 mph at times and can get straight. He'll need to refine his pitches and improve his control and command, but some scouts believe he has more upside than any member of the Hawks' talented pitching staff. He has committed to Oregon.

17 1135 Toronto Blue Jays Daniel Devonshire 1B Colby (Kan.) CC Kan.
18 1136 Los Angeles Dodgers John Sgromolo 1B Flagler (Fla.) Fla.
19 1137 Los Angeles Angels Matt Collins RHP Central Florida Fla.
20 1138 San Francisco Giants Drew Jackson SS Miramonte HS, Orinda, Calif. Calif.
Jackson is the younger brother of Cubs prospect Brett Jackson. Drew is an above-average runner and a premium defender, but scouts aren't sure about his bat at this point, so teams will probably be content to let him head to Stanford.
21 1139 Atlanta Braves Giovanni Brusa OF St. Mary's HS, Stockton, Calif. Calif.
Brusa stood out at the Area Code Games last summer for his muscular 6-foot-3, 195-pound physique and for his power during batting practice from both sides of the plate. His swing, however, was segmented and a little long. He smoothed things out this spring, allowing him to tap into his power more, and scouts loved that he hit with a wood bat. Not all scouts believe in Brusa, though. He's a good athlete but spent a lot of time this season at DH, rather than playing in the outfield. He has the tools to play there, and he's an average runner with fringe-average arm strength. Brusa is committed to Pacific, but scouts believe he wants to sign, which could help him move him up draft boards.
22 1140 St. Louis Cardinals Derrick May OF Tattnall School, Wilmington, Del. Del.
23 1141 Boston Red Sox Jonathan Dziedzic LHP Lamar Texas
24 1142 Tampa Bay Rays Rob Finneran RHP Bentley (Mass.) Mass.
25 1143 Arizona Diamondbacks Breland Almadova OF Hawaii Hawaii
Almadova is the area's best prospect, with an athletic, muscular build at 6-foot-1 and 185 pounds. His quick-twitch athleticism makes him an above-average runner and he plays tremendous defense in center field. He hit well with wood last summer in the West Coast League, though he had a disappointing season for the Rainbows, hitting just .267/.383/.356. Scouts think it likely he'll return for his senior year.
26 1144 Detroit Tigers Charlie Neil C Yale Conn.
27 1145 Milwaukee Brewers Taylor Smith-Brennan SS Edmonds (Wash.) CC Wash.
28 1146 Texas Rangers Matt Withrow RHP Midland (Texas) Christian HS Texas
29 1147 New York Yankees Charles Basford RHP Samford Ala.
30 1148 Philadelphia Phillies Daniel Starwalt RHP Granite Hills HS, El Cajon, Calif. Calif.
Starwalt emerged as one of Southern California's top prep arms last summer, when he ran his fastball up to 94-95 mph and consistently pitched with an above-average spike curveball in the 78-80 range. He got off to a slow start after suffering a stress fracture in his back this spring, and he has since worked in the 86-90 range while losing power on his curveball, which still rates as average when he stays on top of it. He's also had a tendency to scatter his fastball. He has some feel for a changeup, which has a chance to become an average offering. Starwalt, who doesn't turn 18 until February, could sink in the draft because of his strong commitment to Stanford and his lackluster spring, but his upside is very intriguing if he can return to form.
