6 197 Philadelphia Phillies Steven Inch RHP Vauxhall Academy, Edmonton $300,000
Righthander Steven Inch came on strong as the draft drew closer and is Canada's second-best prospect. The 6-foot-4, 195-pounder throws in the mid- to upper 80s and really knows how to pitch. He fills up the strike zone, has a feel for a breaking ball and does everything effortlessly. He's committed to Kentucky and could be a tough sign.
14 413 Seattle Mariners Adam Nelubowich 3B Vauxhall Academy, Edmonton
Another player who drew late interest after a good showing for a Canadian junior team playing against professional players in Florida is lefthanded-hitting outfielder Adam Nelubowich. The 6-foot-2, 175-pounder showed he can handle good velocity consistently with a wood bat. He's still growing into his power potential. With a frame that compares to fellow Canadian Michael Saunders, Nelubowich has room to fill out and add about 15 pounds of muscle.
25 746 Baltimore Orioles Jay Johnson LHP Lethbridge (Alberta) JC
Lefthander Jay Johnson pitches for the Prairie Baseball Academy, which requires its players to take classes at Lethbridge (Alberta) CC. Johnson pitches at 89-91 mph and has been up to 93, but has a history of being injured. He is committed to Texas Tech.
30 911 Houston Astros Brandon Petite RHP Vauxhall Academy, Edmonton
Righthander Brandon Petite has good size and a fastball that sits around 88-90 mph. The 6-foot-3, 195-pounder complements it with a good slider and should be a late-round selection.
46 1396 Milwaukee Brewers Jordan Wong RHP Vauxhall Academy, Edmonton
