    Texas Christian's entire weekend rotation will get drafted, with righthander Steven Maxwell following Matt Purke and Kyle Winkler. A fifth-year senior who turned down the Twins as a 12th-round pick after winning Mountain West Conference pitcher of the year honors in 2010, Maxwell succeeds by throwing strikes with a 90-91 mph sinker that maxes out at 93, and a solid slider. The 6-foot-1, 192-pounder had Tommy John surgery and missed a month this spring with biceps soreness.
