Round Overall Team Player Position State Bonus
23 700 Minnesota Twins Travis Huber RHP Neb.
Huber is a 6-foot-3, 225-pounder with a 90-92 mph fastball that touches 95. He gets hit more than someone with that velocity should because he relies heavily on his fastball and his command wavers. Though he flashes a hard slider and show some feel for a changeup, he profiles as a reliever. He missed a month this spring with shoulder soreness. The Marlins selected Huber in each of the last two drafts out of the JC of Southern Idaho, in the 47th round in 2010 and in the 39th last year.
23 711 Chicago White Sox Kale Kiser OF Neb.
23 713 Cleveland Indians Richard Stock C/1B Neb.
Drafted as a catcher in the 45th round out of high school three years ago by the Brewers, Stock hurt his shoulder as a freshman at Southern California. He did little catching for the Trojans or in 2011 at Pierce (Calif.) JC, but he had enough action behind the plate this year at Nebraska to pique the interest of scouts. He has more than enough arm strength to catch but would have to improve his receiving and footwork. If he can pull that off, he'd have much more value than he does as a first baseman. The 6-foot-2, 185-pounder offers lefthanded power and makes consistent contact, but scouts don't envision him providing enough offense at first base. The Cardinals drafted his brother Robert in 2009 and converted him from catcher to pitcher this year.
25 781 Boston Red Sox Khiry Cooper OF Neb.
35 1067 Miami Marlins Chad Christensen OF 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.
