Major League Phase
FIRST ROUND
Selecting Team Player Previous Team
Pirates SS Josh Rodriguez Indians
Offensive-minded utility type. Bench fodder, not a potential regular.
Mariners RHP Jose Flores Indians
Projectable Low-A reliever with plus fastball, good control.
Diamondbacks LHP Joe Paterson Giants
Crafty lefty specialists gets by with curveball and guts.
Orioles RHP Adrian Rosario Brewers
Plus fastball and sinking change, but scatters zone in Low-A ball.
Royals RHP Nathan Adcock Pirates
If you dream a little, he could have three average to solid pitches and be a starter.
Nationals RHP Elvin Ramirez Mets
Improved his fastball and control in the Dominican this winter, hitting 98-99 mph on radar guns
Cubs RHP Mason Tobin Angels
Sold to Rangers. Has live arm but has pitched just three innings in two years because of injuries.
Astros RHP Aneury Rodriguez Rays
Three average pitches, pushes average fastball to 94 at times, possible starter, good winter.
Brewers RHP Pat Egan Orioles
Sinker/slider reliever has reached Triple-A but lacks a true go-to pitch
Mets 3B/2B Brad Emaus Blue Jays
Offensive-minded utility type, chance to be a regular maybe, can't play SS though.
Padres RHP George Kontos Yankees
Has some arm strength but lack of consistency pushed him to bullpen this year.
Twins LHP Scott Diamond Braves
Average fastball and curve give him a chance to be a No. 5 starter/long reliever.
Yankees LHP Robert Fish Angels
Reliever can hit 95 mph, but he had an 8.93 ERA in Double-A.
Rays LHP Cesar Cabral Red Sox
Delivery a concern, but his fastball touches 93 out of pen and changeup is plus at times.
Phillies 2B Michael Martinez Nationals
Utility type with good glove, strong arm, average run—but light bat.
SECOND ROUND
Nationals RHP Brian Broderick Cardinals
Chance to start with four fringe to avg pitches, very good control, fastball to 93 at times.
Astros RHP Lance Pendleton Yankees
Has a plus fastball in 89-93 mph sinker, secondary pitches are mostly fringy. Command is OK.
Mets RHP Pedro Beato Orioles
Former sandwich pick rejuvenated after moving to pen this year, works mostly off solid sinker.
Yankees RHP Dan Turpen Red Sox
92-94 mph from low slot makes him tough on righties, but he hasn't solved lefties yet.
