Round Overall Team Player Position School Bonus
1s 47 Chicago White Sox Keenyn Walker OF Central Arizona JC $795,000
Walker was drafted in the 16th round out of high school in Utah in 2009 and last year at Central Arizona, in the 38th round. Scouts have always been intrigued by the 6-foot-3 switch-hitter with standout tools and impressive athleticism. The raw tools don't always translate on the baseball field, however, and he didn't even start regularly last year. This year is a different story. Walker has performed well with wood and he should get more than the $250,000 he reportedly turned down out of high school. Walker has more power from the right side, but his lefthanded swing is more pure. He's mostly a gap hitter with above-average speed, so he profiles as a good defensive center fielder. He has the speed to hit at the top of the order, but needs to cut down on his strikeouts. If he doesn't sign, Walker will head to Utah.
3 92 Seattle Mariners Kevin Cron 1B Mountain Pointe HS, Phoenix
C.J. Cron isn't the only Cron in this draft with a huge bat. His younger brother shattered the Arizona high school career home run record this year, finishing with 59, including 27 this season as he helped his team win a state title. Cron is almost a clone of his older brother. He has a softer body at 6-foot-3 and 240 pounds, but it's all about the hitting and power tools for those two. Kevin has some arm strength but will be limited to first base because of his lack of athleticism and below-average speed. High school first basemen that hit from the right side of the plate aren't usually premium picks, but Cron's bat is that intriguing. He has good bat speed and well above-average raw power. Rumors had him looking for a seven-figure signing bonus, and if he doesn't get an offer to his liking he'd be happy to honor his commitment to Texas Christian.
4 125 Baltimore Orioles Kyle Simon RHP Arizona $231,300
While he's a lot bigger than Oregon State's Sam Gaviglio at 6-foot-5 and 219 pounds, Simon has similar stuff, as a righthander with a lot of sink on his fastball and a good feel for pitching. Simon peaks at 93 mph, though he usually works between 86-89. He doesn't have a put-away pitch as Gaviglio does, and it shows up when comparing their strikeout totals. Simon's secondary offerings consist of a cutter at 84-87 mph and a changeup. Simon is big and sturdy with a lot of deception in his delivery. He could go to the bullpen and show more of those 93s, or he could stay in the rotation and get a bunch of groundouts as a back-of-the-rotation starter.
4 147 San Francisco Giants Bryce Bandilla LHP Arizona $185,000
Bandilla has a lot of qualities scouts like: He's a beast at 6-foot-4, 237 pounds and can get his fastball up to 97 mph from the left side. He hasn't been consistent this year, however, and while he has the most electric stuff in Arizona's bullpen, he has pitched mostly in the middle innings and hasn't been trusted to close. When his stuff is on, it's undeniable. His fastball sits in the 92-95 mph range, and his best secondary offering is an above-average changeup that he has a good feel for. He throws a slurvy breaking ball in the bullpen but rarely uses it in games. He needs work on his fastball command and has some effort in his delivery as he flies open a little bit. Still, he could get a chance to start as a pro because his velocity from the left side is so rare.
4 150 Tampa Bay Rays Riccio Torrez 3B Arizona State $180,000
Third baseman Riccio Torrez leapfrogged a couple of his more touted Arizona State teammates and will likely be drafted in the first 10 rounds, though he doesn't have standout tools. He won over scouts because he can do a little bit of everything and has a long track record of performance. Torrez has a line drive swing, with the chance for more power down the road. He profiles best at third base, or could wind up being a utility player because he's agile enough to play second base or shortstop in a pinch. Some scouts would like to try him out behind the plate. Torrez is a grinder who practices as hard as he plays and will be a favorite of managers in the pro ranks.
5 159 Chicago Cubs Tayler Scott RHP Notre Dame Prep, Scottsdale, Ariz. $279,950
Scott, who moved to the United States from South Africa three years ago, did not pitch at any major showcase events last summer, but he's popping up this spring in another down year for Arizona high school talent. He's a good athlete who is also a standout soccer player for Notre Dame Prep. Scott has a projectable 6-foot-2 frame and is committed to Arizona. His fastball sits in the 90-92 mph range, topping out at 93. He flashes an above-average breaking ball at times and he can throw the pitch for strikes, though it's mostly below-average now. Like most high school pitchers, Scott doesn't throw a changeup. He got roughed up during a couple of starts late in the year, but scouts still like his athleticism and projection.
7 222 New York Mets Cole Frenzel 1B Arizona $200,000
It was a banner year in the Dakotas--and the crop is even more impressive if you consider players that have since moved on to other states, like righthander Sam Wolff at JC of Southern Nevada and first baseman Cole Frenzel at Arizona. Frenzel was a 48th-round pick out of Dickinson (N.D.) High in 2009 and is now a draft-eligible sophomore. Frenzel shows some raw power, but mostly uses a flat, line-drive approach and doesn't utilize his lower half much in his swing. He has the arm strength to tempt a team to use him at third base, but probably winds up at first base, where his bat doesn't profile as well.
7 241 Philadelphia Phillies Ken Giles RHP Yavapai (Ariz.) JC $250,000
Coming into the season, Yavapai JC righthander Kenny Giles was a one-trick pony. Giles, 6-foot-2 and 185 pounds, did not pitch as a high school senior because of elbow tendinitis and threw just 11 innings for New Mexico JC last year. He entered the year as just a thrower, having shown arm strength but little control or secondary pitches in the past. He turned a corner this spring, though, sitting 92-96 mph and touching 99. His fastball can get straight, but he has commanded it well and worked to improve his tempo on the mound. Giles also developed a splitter and has shown an 87-88 mph slider in bullpens and competitive batting practice sessions. Teams know he's raw, but his arm strength could land him as high as the third round. He is committed to Arizona, though scouts expect him to sign.
8 245 Baltimore Orioles John Ruettiger OF Arizona State $160,000
The nephew of Dan "Rudy" Ruettiger, the Notre Dame football player who inspired the movie, Johnny Ruettiger has had a disappointing spring. He came into his junior season as a .354/.474/.509 career hitter, and he led the Cape Cod League in batting last summer at .369 and ranked as the league's No. 12 prospect. He has pressed this year for the Sun Devils, however, and was trying to show more power, which isn't a part of his game. He was batting .325/.406/.378 with no home runs this year. Ruettiger's approach at the plate should focus more on putting the ball in play and finding the gaps instead of trying to launch home runs. His speed grades out at 60 or sometimes 70 on the 20-80 scouting scale. He has mostly been used in left field for the Sun Devils, so scouts haven't been able to see him in center, where he projects best. He also needs to polish his basestealing, as he had stolen 21 bases this year but had been caught 11 times.
8 248 Cleveland Indians Stephen Tarpley LHP Gilbert (Ariz.) HS
Lefthander Stephen Tarpley has been impressive this spring, sitting in the 89-91 mph range with his fastball and touching 93, with a hard curveball. He gets around the pitch at times, but it shows hard, downer action when he stays on top of it. Tarpley also mixes in a changeup and can throw all of his pitches for strikes thanks to his athletic, 6-foot, 175-pound frame. Scouts like him, but there are rumors he wants seven figures to forgo his commitment to Southern California. If he goes to school, some think he could be a first-round pick in three years.
9 283 Florida Marlins Austin Barnes C Arizona State $95,000
Austin Barnes is a natural middle infielder who converted to catching two years ago and shows good athleticism behind the plate. He's undersized at 5-foot-9 and 174 pounds, and scouts have doubts about his bat. His uncle is Mike Gallego, who played in the big leagues for 13 years and is now the third-base coach for Oakland.
11 349 Toronto Blue Jays Andy Burns SS Arizona $250,000
Shortstop Andy Burns transferred from the Wildcats of Kentucky to the Wildcats of Arizona after last season, so he had to sit out this season. He was one of the top high school prospects in Colorado in 2008, but he fell to the Rockies in the 25th round because of his strong commitment to Kentucky. Burns has been working out for teams this spring and has expressed interest in signing. He'll get a chance to remain at shortstop as a pro, though he may eventually move to third base. He's an above-average runner and has the footwork to remain in the middle of the diamond. He has smooth actions, a 6-foot-2, 190-pound frame and well above-average arm strength. There are more questions about his bat than his defense, and he batted .279 in his two seasons at Kentucky. He will likely play in the Cape Cod League this summer to try and boost his stock.
12 385 Cincinnati Reds Joe Serrano SS Salpointe HS, Tucson, Ariz.
12 386 Atlanta Braves Matt Chaffee LHP Arizona $100,000
Lefthander Matt Chaffee worked hard to overcome a torn labrum and has been impressive late in the year as the Wildcats' closer. His fastball sits in the 90-92 mph range and has a three-pitch mix with a curveball he can throw for strikes and a changeup. There's no denying Chaffee's stuff, so it's just a matter of how much teams worry about his medical history.
13 398 Cleveland Indians Zack MacPhee 2B Arizona State $150,000
Second baseman Zack MacPhee was the Pacific-10 Conference player of the year last year after batting .389/.486/.664, the first year he started switch-hitting. He hit just .232/.377/.283 in conference games this year with college baseball's less-potent bats, though he still showed a patient approach. He took his walks and didn't strike out a lot, but put a lot of pressure on himself after his huge sophomore season. MacPhee has a tight, uphill swing from both sides of the plate. He doesn't have the arm strength to play anywhere but second base and is a fringy runner. He's a good defender at second base, but at 5-foot-8 and 172 pounds he needs either big tools or big numbers, and he had neither this year.
14 422 Pittsburgh Pirates Jordan Dunatov OF Horizon HS, Scottsdale, Ariz.
Outfielder Jordan Dunatov was a wild card after missing most of the year with a back injury. Scouts like his body and athleticism--he's a 6-foot-5, 200-pound specimen with above-average speed--but have questions about his bat. He'll likely head to Oregon State as part of a strong Beavers recruiting class.
14 432 New York Mets Xorge Carrillo C Arizona State
14 451 Philadelphia Phillies Trey Ford 3B South Mountain (Ariz.) JC
South Mountain shortstop Trey Ford has an athletic, 6-foot-3, 180-pound frame. He's a bit of a tweener because he doesn't have the range to stay at shortstop or the power to profile at third base, but he shows above-average speed and arm strength and plays hard.
15 455 Baltimore Orioles Eric Wooten LHP Central Arizona JC
15 480 Tampa Bay Rays Tyler Parmenter SS Cibola HS, Yuma, Ariz.
Parmenter has a 6-foot-1, 180-pound frame and his best tool is his arm, which some scouts give a 70 on the 20-80 scale. He has touched 92 on the mound, and would play both ways if he gets to Arizona. He has power potential at the plate, but he's a bit raw and there are questions about whether he has the footwork and instincts to remain at shortstop.
16 490 Houston Astros Scott Zuloaga LHP Scottsdale (Ariz.) JC
18 543 Seattle Mariners Nick Valenza LHP Horizon HS, Scottsdale, Ariz. $140,000
Lefthander Nick Valenza is undersized at 5-foot-9 and 180 pounds, but he has a lightning-quick arm and has touched 93 mph this spring. He also throws a quality changeup and a power breaking ball, though he needs to improve his control. He's committed to Nevada.
19 580 Houston Astros Mitch Lambson LHP Arizona State $100,000
Lefthander Mitchell Lambson can spot his fastball and has an above-average changeup, but he's underwhelming with velocity in the 85-86 mph range.
21 646 Oakland Athletics Brandon Magee OF Arizona State
The Sun Devil scouts were most intrigued by coming into the season--outfielder Brandon Magee--has spent most of the year on the bench. Most of scouts' looks have come during batting practice, where he routinely launches balls out of the park from the left side of the plate. Arizona State coaches and scouts agree that Magee has some of the best raw power in the country. He's an above-average runner under way, and despite his muscle-bound frame his swing is not tight or restricted. He has a compact, chiseled physique at 5-foot-11 and 230 pounds. He's also a linebacker and was second on the Sun Devils football team with 73 tackles last fall. He has a better pro future on the baseball diamond and indications are that he wants to play. With 29 total collegiate at-bats, Magee is raw and will require patience and instruction at the next level, but he should go off the board between the eighth and 12th round.
21 647 Detroit Tigers Scott Squier LHP Greenway HS, Phoenix
Control and consistency have been an issue for lefthander Scott Squier. He has been up to 94 mph and is committed to Hawaii. Squier has projection in his 6-foot-5, 180-pound frame, and his cutter and curveball show promise.
21 658 Minnesota Twins Michael Howard LHP Prescott (Ariz.) HS
Lefthander Michael Howard generated buzz over the summer by touching 92 mph at the Area Code Games. He was inconsistent this spring, and most scouts felt he would be better off going to Baylor and polishing his arsenal and command.
21 659 New York Yankees Zach Wilson 1B Arizona State $100,000
First baseman Zach Wilson has power but is unexceptional as a righthanded corner bat with an all-or-nothing approach.
23 696 Kansas City Royals Lance Harper C Scottsdale (Ariz.) JC
24 727 Washington Nationals Kyle Ottoson LHP Arizona State
25 765 Los Angeles Angels Josh Alvarado RHP Phoenix (No school)
26 785 Baltimore Orioles Zach Davies RHP Mesquite HS, Gilbert, Ariz. $575,000
Another Arizona State commit is righthander Zach Davies, who got multiple Mike Leake comparisons from scouts and college recruiters. Like Leake, Davies has a medium build at 6 feet and 165 pounds and shows good athleticism. When he's not pitching, he plays shortstop. Davies doesn't have huge stuff but knows how to pitch and has four pitches that should be at least average: fastball, curveball, slider and changeup. He doesn't have Leake's fastball movement, but the similarities with his athleticism and feel for pitching are obvious.
29 899 New York Yankees Scot Hoffman RHP Desert Ridge HS, Mesa, Ariz.
30 905 Baltimore Orioles Mikey Reynolds SS Paradise Valley (Ariz.) JC
31 945 Los Angeles Angels Jett Bandy C Arizona
Catcher Jett Bandy is a good receiver but has fringy arm strength and a questionable bat.
31 959 New York Yankees Aaron Bummer LHP Sunrise Mountain HS, Peoria, Ariz.
32 962 Pittsburgh Pirates David Jagoditsh RHP Pima (Ariz.) JC
32 970 Houston Astros Zach Dando RHP Central Arizona JC
Dando is raw and surprised scouts late in the year by touching 93 mph with his fastball. He shows potential with his slider as well, and is committed to Southern California.
33 1004 Los Angeles Dodgers Malcolm Holland 2B Hamilton HS, Chandler, Ariz. $150,000
33 1009 Toronto Blue Jays Kramer Champlin RHP Arizona State
33 1015 Cincinnati Reds Steve Selsky OF Arizona
34 1035 Los Angeles Angels Andy Workman OF Arizona State
37 1134 Texas Rangers Bryce Greager SS Fountain Hills (Ariz.) HS
39 1184 Los Angeles Dodgers Jordan Kipper RHP Mountain Pointe HS, Phoenix
39 1200 Tampa Bay Rays T.J. Geith LHP Scottsdale (Ariz.) JC
40 1218 Colorado Rockies Drew Stankiewicz 2B Gilbert (Ariz.) HS
40 1227 San Francisco Giants Alan Garcia RHP Eastern Arizona JC
Eastern Arizona righthander Alan Garcia, a native of Hermosillo, Mexico, has a 6-foot-4, 210-pound frame and drew scouts by touching 95 mph with his fastball early in the season. He was inconsistent and mostly pitched in the 87-91 mph range, however, and had an appendectomy that also slowed him down. A team may give him a shot later in the draft, hoping that the 95 mph fastball returns. If he doesn't sign, he will pitch for Azusa Pacific next year.
41 1236 Kansas City Royals Travis Lane C Central Arizona JC
41 1237 Washington Nationals Bryce Ortega 3B Arizona
41 1244 Los Angeles Dodgers Casey Thomas 2B Desert Vista HS, Phoenix
43 1306 Oakland Athletics Adam Frank LHP Field HS, Gilbert, Ariz.
44 1351 Philadelphia Phillies Nevin Wilson LHP Chaparral HS, Scottsdale, Ariz.
45 1352 Pittsburgh Pirates Robbie Ingram LHP Yavapai (Ariz.) JC
46 1398 Colorado Rockies Nate Causey C Gilbert (Ariz.) HS
Nathaniel Causey has intriguing tools. He's passable behind the plate and shows good power as a lefthanded hitter, though the swing is a little stiff and he's pull-conscious right now. Scouts backed off this year because of his strong commitment to Arizona State.
46 1410 Tampa Bay Rays Max Rossiter C Central Arizona JC
Rossiter, who is committed to Arizona State, has average arm strength and power, and the toughness to remain at catcher.
47 1428 Colorado Rockies Casey Scott 2B Notre Dame Prep, Scottsdale, Ariz.
47 1435 Cincinnati Reds Kirby Pellant 2B Chandler-Gilbert (Ariz.) JC
47 1439 New York Yankees Ethan Springston OF Seton Catholic HS, Chandler, Ariz.
48 1466 Atlanta Braves Alex Real 3B Boulder Creek HS, Anthem, Ariz.
49 1474 Arizona Diamondbacks Jake Williams 1B South Mountain (Ariz.) JC
49 1491 Chicago White Sox Zach Regier OF Gilbert (Ariz.) HS
