Season 13 Draft Review: Round 1

Tuesday, March 23, 2010 Posted by andersaa
# 1 Las Vegas: SS Jeremie Aubrey From Central HS in Baton Rouge LA. Projects into a low range SS or elite 3B with a decent bat. Health, range, baserunning, and vsL are his only weaknesses even though they are decent. Currently the 18 year-old is in RL.

#2 Minnesota: 3B/RF Wolf Guerrero From Stony Point HS in Round Rock TX. Projects to be a huge power hitter with even splits and a decent eye. His issues only lie in his glove. Currently the 18 year-old is a RL all-star.

#3 Charlotte: SP Jimmie Parrish From AI Prince HS in Hartford CT. This future right-handed ace is going to be great if he can reach his far-off projections. His best pitches are his 4-seam and Slider but he also has a curve and change-up. Currently the 18 year-old is RL.

#4 Tucson: RF Timo Wilkinson From Amherst County HS in MA. The lefty will be able to hit for power and steal a ton of bags. Weakness will be left-handed pitchers and glove. Currently the 18 year old is in LoA and a RL all-star.

#5 Fargo: SS Jorge Cerda A Junior at Winthrop University. This really short shortstop is asking for a ridiculous amount of money to be swayed from college this year. He should be a slightly above average batter and is already close to ML-ready. Currently this 21 year-old is still in negotiations with Fargo management.

#6 Baltimore: 3B Dennis Komatsu A senior from UNLV. This Power hitting infielder should be ML ready very soon. Weaknesses are his contact and eye. He has a great body makeup. Currently this 22 year-old is in RL.

#7 St. Louis: RP Davey Valdes From Big Walnut HS in Sunbury OH. Will be a very dominate closer in the years to come, his splits are amazing. Weakness are his pitches, he only has one good pitch, his 100 projected sinker. Currently in LoA.

#8 Los Angeles: 2B Sal Nunnally who was a junior at Troy State. Sal will be able to hit both lefty's and righty's and get on base alot. His questions really lie in if he develops his glove and range enough to be a solid 2B. Currently the 21 year-old is in RL.

#9 Seattle: SP Bobby Tanner Bobby's mother wants her kid to go to a 4 year college instead of pro baseball. But Seattle wants the control pitcher to develop in their system instead. His projections are amazing for his curve, splitter, and 4-Seam. He is still in negotiations.

#10 Columbus: CF Harry Cordero From Rose Hill Christian HS in Ashland KY. This lefty should be a solid leadoff hitter if he reaches his projections. Major concerns lie in his work effort. Currently the 18 year-old is a RL all-star.

#11 Toledo: SS Rod Woodard From Manor HS in Manor TX. He could end up being a SS but will probably have to settle in at 3B. His bat will be okay but nothing great. Currently this 18 year-old is in RL.

#12 San Juan: 2B/CF Harry Castillo a freshman from Florida College. This kid has one of the best glove/range combo in the draft and will only get better. His bat does not project well unless San Juan scouts know something others dont. Currently this 19 year old is in RL.

#13 Richmond: CF Guillermo TrajanoFrom Barrington HS in Barrington IL and is Ricardo Trajano's little brother. This lefty has the range to be a great ML CF and some great power, but low splits and contact will hurt his batting average. Currently the 18 year old in in LoA.

#14 Sacramento: SS Joakim Arias From Glades Day HS in Belle Glade FL. This future SS has elite level range and arm, if glove reach potential could be a gold glove SS. At the plate he has great power and very good eye but has serious problems with right handing pitchers. Currently this 18 year-old is in RL.

#15 Boise: SP Matthew Corino a freshman at Central Carolina Community College. He is a strong power groundball pitcher with good control. Fastball has reached 98 MPH but does not move much. His slider is his best pitch. Currently this 19 year-old is in RL.

#16 Monterrey: INF Lou Phillips a junior from Chaminade University. The small Candanian who played college in Hawaii, will be moving to Mexico. His fielding attributes look like he will be best at 2B, and bat projects to a solid leadoff hitter if he can learn to steal bases. Currently this 21 year old is in HiA.

#17 Trenton: SP Gerry Garcia From Mandaree HS in ND who parents were definitely Dead-heads. This 6'5 control pitcher has 4 ML pitches but scouts are worried about his health and stamina. Currently the 18 year-old is in RL.

#18 Oklahoma City: 2B Alan Pearson A junior from Louisiana Tech. This infielder should hit lefties well and has an overall to get him into the majors. Questions lie in his fielding, health and vsR. Currently the 21 year-old is in RL.

#19 New Orleans: 2B Dave Becker A junior at Texas. He currently leads the Big 12 in Stolen bases and is the best fielder in the WCAA. He has alot of learning to do at the plate though. He is still in negotations with New Orleans management.

#20 Iowa City: P Harry Mesa My scouts have no idea about this kid. He is self-represented and is asking for more money then his draft position.

#21 Tampa Bay: RP Walker Gray a sophomore out of Edison Community college in OH. This tall reliever has great control and velocity but lacks splits to get the alot of outs. Currently this 20 year-old in in RL.

#22 Toledo(Type A from Nashville): CF Raul Mercedes a freshman from Lenoir Community College in NC. His splits and fielding potentials are outstanding for a lefty OF. His baserunning and eye are concerns. Currently the 19 year-old in in RL.

#23 Louisville: 2B/CF Dion Christenson From Cameron HS in WI. This guy could get a gold glove at 2B someday, but his bat is less then ideal. Currently the 18 year-old in in RL.

#24 Tucson(Type A from Cleveland): RP Dicky Webster From St. Mary's HS in KS. This conrol pitching future closer will be able to keep groundballs and stikeouts coming with his slider, sinker and palmball. Currently the 18 year-old is in RL.

#25 Texas(Type A from Cinncinatti): 2B/CF Jumbo Rhodes a senior captian of the University of Georgia Bulldogs. He was one of the most ML-ready players in the draft after leading Georgia to a SEC title. He projects to a be a decent fielding but horrible hitting 2B. Texas started him in HiA since he is already 22.

#26 Columbus(Type D): LF/2B P.T. Soto From Hammond HS in Columbia SC. This power hitting 2B was been moved to the outfield becuase of his range and glove. He projects to be a solid power hitting, high OBS LF. Currently the 18 year-old in in RL.

#27 Dover: OF Kennie Mlicki From Smithfield-Selma HS in NC. This COF will be a solid vs Right hitter with a very high contact. His fielding is nothing special but better then a 1B. Currently the 18 year-old is in RL.

#28 Columbus(Type A from Tacoma): 2B/1B Damion Bradshaw a sophomore out of Westchester CC in NY. His bat is okay and should get him in the Majors one day but he should not be a 2B. Plays mostly at DH right now. Currently the 20 year-old is in RL.

#29 San Deigo: SP Al Silva This Candiadian senior just graduated from Fort Lewis College in CO, where he was the Rocky Mountain Confernce POY. He is very high stamina power pitcher with a great sinker and 4 other underwhelming pitches. Currently the 22 year-old is in LoA.

#30 Vancouver: C Al Lunar Recent grad of UTSA. A very solid hitter vs Leftys with elite eye. There are concerns about his vs Rightys and health. Currently the 22 year-old is in RL.

#31 Baltimore(Type from Texas): 3B/2B Herbert Kapler A senior from Georgia College. He is looking to sign for slot money and is trying to work out something with Baltimore. He should have a good 3B fielding, and decent but nothing special bat.

#32 Burlington: RP Evan Fitzgerald A junior at the University of Oklahoma. This kid is a great football player that will be in the pros soon, only plays baseball for fun. He is an All-American quarterback for the Sooners despite his size. As a baseball player he would be a great setup/closer if Burlington can convince him to play.

#33 Portland: LF Frank Shields From Lisbon HS in ME. This guy is a ok hitter vs Rightys, but will have to be platooned as ML lefty's will kill him. He has fielding limitations so might have to stay at LF or 1B. Currently the 18 year-old in in LoA ball.
