Round Overall Team Player Position State Bonus
7 248 Philadelphia Phillies Hoby Milner LHP Texas $140,700
The Longhorns' streak of producing at least one player in the first five rounds of every draft since 1999 is in jeopardy this year. Milner is the only early-round candidate for Texas, and he pitched his way out of their rotation after three starts. A valuable swingman who appeared in 33 of Texas' 50 regular season games, Milner projects as a reliever because he hasn't been able to add strength or velocity in three years of college. A slender 6-foot-2 and 165 pounds, he works with an 86-88 mph fastball as a starter, sits at 88-89 and tops out at 91 when he comes out of the bullpen. His best pitch is a 75-78 mph curveball with good depth, and he uses a changeup to keep righthanders at bay. His stuff plays up because he commands it so well, and he delivers his pitches on a tough angle to the plate. He's the son of Brian Milner, who went straight from high school to the majors as an eighth-round bonus baby with the Blue Jays in 1978.
