4 131 Houston Astros B.J. Hyatt RHP S.C. $200,000
Hyatt, physical and projectable at 6-foot-4, 205 pounds, is considered a raw power arm. He worked as both a starter and as a reliever for USC-Sumter JC but posted a 7.24 ERA in the spring. He was committed to transfer to Kennesaw State, but the athletic righthander flashed mid-90s velocity in a predraft workout with the Astros.
44 1324 Texas Rangers Tyler Christman RHP S.C.
USC Sumter's Tyler Christman was the most accomplished junior-college pitcher in the state, going 12-1, 1.73, and using an 89-91 mph fastball and power slider to rack up 104 strikeouts in just 78 innings. The 6-foot-2, 180-pound Christman has a medical history, having had both Tommy John surgery and another procedure to repair a torn ACL.
