Round Overall Team Player Position State Bonus
4 146 Los Angeles Dodgers Justin Chigbogu 1B Mo. $250,000
Before this spring, Chigbogu was known mostly as an all-state defensive end. But scouts who went to see Raytown South outfielder Bralin Jackson came away marveling about Chigbogu's massive power potential. He probably would need two years in Rookie ball at this point, but he's a 6-foot-2, 230-pound athlete who crushes balls from the left side of the plate. While he's raw, he doesn't strike out excessively. He runs well for his size and perhaps could play left field, though he has a below-average arm. A Heartland (Ill.) CC recruit, he could be signable after the 10th round.
5 182 Tampa Bay Rays Bralin Jackson OF Mo. $322,500
Scouts generally aren't enamored with position players who throw lefthanded and bat righthanded, but they made an exception for Jackson, who has a nice array of tools. His most impressive is his bat speed, which gives him plus power potential. The 6-foot-1, 185-pounder also has solid speed and arm strength, and a chance to play center field if he improves his routes. Jackson's athleticism stands out more than his instincts and he's raw at the plate. Most scouts see him as a player who will need two years in Rookie ball, which could drop him far enough in the draft to drive him to the University of Missouri.
