2 80 Washington Nationals Tony Renda 2B Calif. $500,000
Renda won Pacific-10 Conference player of the year honors as a sophomore and led California to an unlikely College World Series trip, batting .332/.366/.434. While the Bears slipped on the mound in 2012, Renda has been even better, batting .370/.453/.526 with a career-best five home runs. He's undersized at 5-foot-8 and 173 pounds, but scouts love his ability to hit and his grinder mentality. He swings hard and shows above-average bat speed, but stays in control of the bat head and shows a compact, line drive stroke. He has a good approach at the plate and projects to hit for solid average with power to the gaps. The knock on Renda concerns his defense at second base. He's not flashy and has just modest range, though he makes the plays he's supposed to make and can turn the double play. Renda was a 42nd-round pick out of high school by the Dodgers and figures to go about 40 rounds higher now.
9 284 Chicago Cubs Chadd Krist C Calif. $10,000
Krist is a senior who shows good athleticism and agility behind the plate. He has a strong arm, but his bat is light, which makes him profile best as a backup in pro ball.
20 628 San Francisco Giants Mitch Delfino INF/RHP Calif.
26 790 Minnesota Twins Justin Jones LHP Calif.
Jones was a seventh-round pick in 2009 out of high school by the White Sox and had a solid freshman year and an excellent sophomore campaign. He has a lanky, 6-foot-2, 188-pound build. But after not pitching in the fall because of a forearm strain, he's been a bit off this spring, going 4-8, 4.40 with just 46 strikeouts over 78 innings and the Bears' coaching staff is throwing him on Sundays. There's more effort to his delivery this year than there has been in the past and he's not pitching with as much poise, either. His fastball velocity fluctuates, sometimes in it's usual 88-91 mph range, while other times it will be in the mid-80s. He'll still flash an above-average curveball, which was his bread and butter, though the pitch has gone backwards this season and he's not throwing it with the consistency he used to. Jones has shown a good changeup in the past and added a cutter to his repertoire this year. He's been pitching backwards a lot and some scouts believe when he gets back to pitching off his fastball that he'll return to being the pitcher he was in high school and earlier in his career at Cal.
