10 321 Chicago White Sox Brandon Hardin RHP Miss. $20,000
Hardin was a starter at Kaskaskia (Ill.) JC for two seasons, then again as a junior at Division II Delta (Miss.) State. As a senior, he shifted to the bullpen and thrived in the role, touching 95-96 at times and adding a breaking ball and split-finger pitch. The 6-foot, 210-pounder went 5-4, 1.03 with a 36-9 strikeout-walk ratio in 35 innings.
19 597 Los Angeles Angels Aaron Newcomb RHP Miss.
Newcomb was Delta State's leading winner in 2012, helping the team reach the Division II College World Series by going 11-4, 3.07. He throws strikes with a four-pitch mix that includes a fastball, cutter, changeup and curve. He's reached the 889-92 mph range with his heater, but most of the year the 6-foot-3, 195-pounder's velocity was down in the mid-to-upper 80s.
28 861 Chicago White Sox James Hudelson RHP Miss.
