Round Overall Team Player Position State Bonus
7 238 Minnesota Twins Steven Gruver LHP Tenn. $125,000
Tennessee's disappointing season should still end with a few players getting drafted, starting with lefthander Steven Gruver, a 6-foot-1, 200-pounder. Gruver excited scouts by touching 93 mph in fall practice, then deflated them by sitting in the 84-88 mph range all spring. He also throws strikes with his curveball, slider and changeup. None of them is above-average, and Gruver's control is better than his command. If his fastball were firmer or his command more precise, he could move into the first five rounds; instead, he's more likely to go from rounds 10-15.
19 600 Tampa Bay Rays Matt Ramsey RHP Tenn.
Teammate Matt Ramsey has bigger stuff, yet hardly pitched this year thanks to his catching and outfield duties as well as a forearm strain. At 6 feet, 200 pounds, Ramsey has strength and a quick arm that allows him to pump his fastball up to 98 mph, sitting at 94-97 in relief stints. He throws two different breaking balls, including a hammer curveball that flashes plus potential. Ramsey has 81 innings of college pitching experience and will need to refine his rough delivery, which probably led to his forearm strain when Tennessee tried to make him a starter. He could be drafted in the first 10 rounds if he has a clean bill of health.
