Round Overall Team Player Position State Bonus
15 473 Cleveland Indians Nellie Rodriguez 1B N.Y. $100,000
Rodriguez has an extra-large frame at 6-foot-2, 250 pounds. He has power and can handle the bat a little, but he won't be able to catch at the pro level and scouts aren't sold on his bat enough to use an early pick on a high school first baseman.
16 509 Atlanta Braves Fernelys Sanchez OF N.Y. $210,000
One of the fastest players in the draft, Sanchez would have been well-tested in the National High School Invitational, but broke his fibula sliding back into a base just a few days before the tournament started. He wasn't expected to return to the field before Washington High's season was completed. Sanchez is a plus-plus runner and a very good defender in center field. He has a good frame at 6-foot-4 and 200 pounds, but there are a lot of questions about the switch-hitter's ability to hit.
