5 170 Chicago Cubs Wes Darvill SS Brookswood SS, Langley, B.C. $142,200
Like many Canadian position players, shortstop Wes Darvill bats lefthanded and throws righthanded. Because he's already 6-foot-3 and 175 pounds, he may have to move off shortstop, and he has the arm to play third base. He has the bat speed to catch up to velocity, but at this point he doesn't have the strength in his wrists and forearms to do anything with it yet. He plays the game hard and could benefit from spending a year or two in college.
25 749 Cincinnati Reds Mike Monster RHP Rutland SS, Kelowna, B.C
With one of the best names in the draft, righthander Mike Monster is the best high school player in a down year for British Columbia. The 6-foot-3, 205-pounder has good size and arm strength, but has been inconsistent. And because he has a December birthday, he was too old to play for the Canadian junior team and got less exposure than other Canadian prospects. Monster doesn't come from the traditional hotbed around Vancouver, he's from Kelowna, about 200 miles northeast. There's some effort to his delivery and he doesn't approach the game with a starter's mentality. He comes hard after hitter and needs to learn to pace himself. He throws an 89-92 mph, heavy fastball, but he has the size and arm speed that lead scouts to believe there's more there, especially from such an inexperienced arm.
33 1007 Philadelphia Phillies Colin Kleven RHP Mountain SS, Langley, B.C
Righthander Colin Kleven has a great body at 6-foot-5 and 195 pounds, but mechanically he's all over the place. He can throw 90 mph and projects for more, and likely needs another year of junior college to learn how to control his body and become more refined.
39 1169 Cincinnati Reds Paul Barton RHP Kwalikum SS, Qualicum Beach, B.C
Righthander Paul Barton has a projectable, 6-foot-2, 180-pound frame. His fastball is a little short at 87-88 mph, but his arm works well and he shows the makings of three pitches. He's inconsistent and just needs more repetitions.
39 1181 Houston Astros Rory Young RHP Mountain SS, Langley, B.C
43 1296 Arizona Diamondbacks Brooklyn Foster C Walnut Grove SS, Langley, B.C
43 1306 Milwaukee Brewers Kyle Dhanani 3B Thompson Rivers (B.C.)
45 1360 Toronto Blue Jays Brandon Kaye RHP Douglas (B.C.)
Righthander Brandon Kaye is a raw 6-foot-4 215-pounder in his first full year of pitching. That's surprising, considering his half-brother is Blue Jays righthander Scott Richmond. He threw just 11 innings during his high school career, and as a junior-college freshman last year spent most of his time at first base. So the team that drafts him will be getting a fresh arm. His delivery is a little slow, but he has sound mechanics and pounds the strike zone. His fastball is 88-91 mph with room to grow, and he mixes in a slider that needs work. He still needs to develop a changeup.
50 1510 Toronto Blue Jays Burke Seifrit RHP Semiahmoo SS, Surrey, B.C
