12 379 Oakland Athletics John Caputo 3B Toronto (no school)
12 385 Toronto Blue Jays Ryan Kellogg LHP Street HS, Whitby, Ont.
Kellogg shows average fastball velocity, consistently sitting in the 87-90 mph range and has projection remaining in his impressive 6-foot-5, 220-pound frame. His curveball was soft and loopy last summer, but he's tightened it up this spring and shows a good feel for spinning it. He's still working to get comfortable with a changeup, but prep lefthanders of his stature don't typically last too long in the draft. Kellogg has pitched well for the Canadian Junior National team--even against professional competition--and will likely be picked in the top five rounds in order for a team to buy him out of his Arizona State commitment.
15 487 New York Yankees Dayton Dawe RHP Lucas SS, London, Ont. $100,000
Dawe has an average build for a pitcher at 6-foot-2 and 180 pounds. He's a good athlete which allows him to repeat his clean, easy delivery. He has a quick and smooth arm action, which allows scouts to project on his 88-91 mph fastball. He throws both a two-seam fastball with some sink and a four-seamer with nice run and he's able to command the pitches to both sides of the plate. Dawe holds his velocity well into the later innings and mixes in a mid-70s curveball. He also has feel for a changeup. Dawe is committed to Maine but is expected to sign.
20 622 Cincinnati Reds Brock Dykxhoorn RHP St. Anne's SS, Clinton, Ont.
Dykxhoorn has an imposing presence on the mound at 6-foot-8 and 225 pounds. His fastball sits in the 88-91 mph range and shows good life. His breaking ball can get slurry, but he has a feel for spin and has deception. There's a little effort to Dykxhoorn's delivery which, along with his size, could mean a move to the bullpen is in his future.
21 642 Baltimore Orioles Julian Service OF Sinclair SS, Whitby, Ont.
Service has a physical frame at 6-foot-3 and 195 pounds. He's a solid-average runner right now and projects best as a right fielder because of his potential with the bat and his well above-average arm strength. Service shows good bat speed and is beginning to show more power this spring. He projects to hit for average power as a pro. Service is considered signable and is committed to Northeast Texas CC.
26 805 Toronto Blue Jays Nathan DeSouza OF Drury HS, Milton, Ont. $100,000
DeSouza has a lot of whip to his lefthanded swing and has no problem catching up to quality fastballs. He hit a home run off Carson Fulmer in Florida last fall and performed well against pro competition with wood bats this spring. He has a muscular, 6-foot, 185-pound frame, and teams that believe in him are buying the bat. He could be an average hitter with solid-average power potential, and all his other tools are fringy. DeSouza missed time this spring with a back injury, and he is considered signable away from his commitment to Connors State (Okla.) JC.
27 843 Arizona Diamondbacks Damion Smith OF Holy Names HS, Windsor, Ont.
28 860 New York Mets Jake Marks RHP St. Clair SS, Sarnia, Ont.
29 905 Milwaukee Brewers Bryan Saucedo 1B Vaughan Road Academy, Toronto
30 915 San Diego Padres Jacob Robson OF Massey SS, Windsor, Ont.
34 1034 Chicago Cubs Christian Botnick RHP Notre Dame SS, Brampton, Ont.
39 1195 Toronto Blue Jays Shaun Valeriote 3B Brock (Ont.)
39 1205 Milwaukee Brewers Derek Jones OF St. Marguerite d'Youville SS, Brampton, Ont.
Jones is actually a similar player to fellow Ontario outfielder Julian Service. Both have similar builds, both bat and throw righthanded and the two players have similar tools for the most part. The biggest difference is that while they're both solid-average runners now, Service is more physically mature and projects to remain an average runner in the future, while Jones has a leaner physique and could become faster as he gets stronger. For that reason, Jones has a chance at being a center fielder at the next level. Jones is considered signable and is committed to Rose State (Okla.) JC.
