17 512 Houston Astros Andy Simunic 2B Tenn.
20 595 Kansas City Royals Shawn Griffin RHP Tenn.
Shawn Griffin is a senior outfielder with a good lefthanded swing and plus power. He is an average defender at best and will likely play in left field at the pro level. Griffin hit .314 this season with 12 home runs.
39 1192 Boston Red Sox Yan Gomes C/INF Tenn.
Yan Gomes is a sophomore-eligible with a big body and juice at the plate, but his performance this season was inconsistent and scouts weren't sure what to make of him. Gomes needs polish both defensively and at the plate, but has a lot of projection.
