4 148 San Francisco Giants Steven Okert LHP Okla. $270,000
The Brewers drafted Okert after each of his two seasons at Grayson County (Texas) CC, in the 43rd round in 2010 and in the 33rd round in 2011. If they want him this June, they're going to have to pull the trigger much earlier. Okert has blossomed after transferring to Oklahoma and moving to the bullpen a month into this season. A fastball that sat at 88-91 mph a year ago now resides at 90-93, consistently touches 95 and peaks at 97. He has added velocity to his slider, and it's death on lefthanded hitters. Some scouts think it's still worth giving Okert a chance to start in pro ball, though he may lack the changeup and command to make that work. They love his effortless delivery and note that he has firmed up his 6-foot-2, 219-pound frame.
5 185 Milwaukee Brewers Damien Magnifico RHP Okla. $285,000
There may not be a pitcher in the entire draft who lights up radar guns as consistently as Magnifico, who regularly hits 100 mph. He reached triple digits 22 times in an April 10 start against Arkansas, working at 96-97 in the ninth and popping a 99 mph heater on his 103rd and final pitch. The question is what else he will bring to the table. His fastball lacks life and opponents see it and hit it well. He had just 27 strikeouts and a .282 opponent average through his first 43 innings this spring. Six-foot-2 and 195 pounds, Magnifico has made adjustments this spring. He'll flash a two-seam fastball with less velocity and more sink, and he's made progress with a cutter/slider, though it still grades as a well below-average pitch. He'll mix in a changeup, but it doesn't keep hitters off his fastball. A fifth-round pick by the Mets out of high school in 2009, Magnifico redshirted at Howard (Texas) JC in 2010 while battling a stress fracture in his elbow that required the insertion of screws. As a draft-eligible sophomore, he has more leverage than most college prospects.
6 214 Detroit Tigers Jordan John LHP Okla. $135,000
John was a rare draft-eligible freshman a year ago, when the Astros selected him in the 28th round. He turned 19 and had Tommy John surgery shortly after graduating from high school in 2009, then redshirted in 2010 while recovering from his elbow reconstruction. The 6-foot-3, 205-pounder began this spring as Oklahoma's closer but quickly asserted himself as the Sooners' No. 1 starter. He doesn't have a plus pitch but hitters don't get good swings against his 86-88 mph fastball, curveball, slider and changeup. He gets good life on his fastball, which tops out at 90 mph, and his clean delivery allows him to command all four offerings.
23 724 Detroit Tigers Drew Harrison RHP Okla.
