Round Overall Team Player Position State Bonus
30 925 New York Yankees Zach Nuding RHP Texas $265,000
Righthander Zach Nuding has a low-90s fastball that tops out at 96, but he also has a 6-foot-4, 265-pound frame and has trouble staying on top of his slider. It may take third-round money to sign him away from a Texas Tech commitment.
35 1052 New York Mets Josh Easley RHP Texas
Righty Josh Easley, a freshman who originally signed with Arkansas, has good pitchability. He has an 88-91 mph fastball that could hit 93 more consistently if he fills out his 6-foot-2, 165-pound build, and he owns a solid curveball.
38 1136 Washington Nationals Nick Lee LHP Texas
Lefty Nick Lee, a freshman, was an all-North Texas JC Athletic Conference selection as an outfielder but has a brighter future on the mound. He's only 6 feet and 170 pounds, but he consistently throws 88-92 mph.
41 1232 New York Mets Taylor Christian RHP Texas
50 1511 Tampa Bay Rays Cory Maltz RHP Texas
