10 315 Los Angeles Angels Drew Martinez OF Tenn. $100,000
Martinez was an unsigned 23rd-round pick of the Mets last year. Martinez, whose father Chito played parts of three seasons in the major leagues, was a Cape Cod League all-star last summer after hitting .359, second in the league, and leading the league with 22 stolen bases. He's not physical at 5-foot-11, 172 pounds and isn't a burner either, though he's an above-average runner, steals bases and plays a solid center field. While his dad hit 13 homers as a major league rookie, Martinez's biggest problem is his lack of home run power. He didn't homer in 2011, and his lack of impact makes him profile more as a fourth outfielder.
19 599 New York Yankees Ben Paullus RHP Tenn.
Memphis' next pick likely will be righthander Ben Paullus, a 6-foot-2, 200-pound closer. He had just four saves for a 30-27 team but showcased a power breaking ball that at its best rivals that of Sonny Gray. He throws it with power, at times touching the low 80s with 12-to-6 break. His fastball sits at 90-92 mph and touches better. He generates two plus pitches with a violent, slinging delivery and doesn't repeat his arm slot well. He's athletic enough to make adjustments and throws just enough strikes. He limited hitters to a .170 average and should sneak into the same eighth-12th-round range as Martinez.
31 942 New York Mets Chad Zurcher SS Tenn.
The Tigers' best performer was redshirt junior Chad Zurcher, one of the nation's most productive shortstops. He was leading the nation in batting and on-base percentage, batting .443/.547/.557. Zurcher, just 6 feet, 167 pounds, has no plus tool; scouts and even college coaches give him average grades for his bat despite his gaudy numbers. He has barrel control and plays hard and smart, maximizing what he has.
