20 600 Cleveland Indians Burch Smith RHP Texas
48 1451 Tampa Bay Rays Blake Barnes RHP Texas
Blake Barnes might have made a case for getting drafted ahead of Howard JC teammate Burch Smith. He showed a 90-92 mph fastball, touched 95 and displayed a true slider when he was 100 percent. There's still projection remaining in his 6-foot-2, 175-pound frame. He has committed to Oklahoma State for his junior season.
