Pick Round Player School Pos B/T Ht Wt DOB Class
13 1 Sale, Chris Florida Gulf Coast University LHP L/L 6’06” 172 1989-03-30 JR Video
Comments: Sometimes good things come out of smaller schools. Sale took a strong Cape Cod League performance and carried it over into his junior season. With the chance to have three outstanding pitches, all of which he can throw for strikes, to go along with outstanding mound presence, Sale has developed into one of the better lefties in the Draft class. Teams will have to look past a less than prototypical arm slot for a starting pitcher, but with the way he’s pitched, it seems likely a team will do that at some point in the first round.
Enhanced Scouting Report
63 2 Petricka, Jacob Indiana State RHP R/R 6’04” 190 1988-06-05 SR Video
Comments: This tall right-hander was creating a lot of buzz later in the spring when reports of him touching 98 mph spread like wildfire. His secondary stuff isn’t as good as the heater, though his curve ball has improved this year and his changeup has a chance to be a decent offering. There’s not a ton of life in the fastball, but he throws without much effort. People were pouring in to see him late, and that kind of arm strength tends to do very well in the Draft.
95 3 Reed, Addison San Diego State RHP L/R 6’04” 215 1988-12-27 JR Video
Comments: Heading into the spring, the thought was that Reed would be one of the more sought-after college relievers in the class, but the San Diego State product was stretched out over the winter in order to be the team’s Friday starter. He has performed even better than most could have expected, showing the ability to throw three pitches and adjusting easily to the role. A broken pinky on his pitching hand slowed him down for a few weeks, but presuming he picks up where he left off, Reed is likely a college arm moving up draft boards everywhere.
Enhanced Scouting Report
114 3S Royse, Thomas Louisville RHP R/R 6’05” 210 1988-09-07 JR
Comments: As a sophomore in 2009, Thomas earned Second-Team All-Big East honors and was named a Big East Academic All-Star.
128 4 Grimes, Matthew Mill Creek HS (GA) RHP R/R 6’05” 185 1991-09-04 HS Video
158 5 Wilkins, Andrew Arkansas 1B L/R 6’02” 230 1988-09-13 JR
Comments: As a sophomore in 2009, Wilkins was named the NCAA Norman Regional’s Most Outstanding Player and was a member of the All-Tournament Team. He was a 25th-round selection of the Texas Rangers in 2007 but did not sign.
188 6 Ravelo, Rangel Hialeah Senior HS (FL) 3B R/R 6’02” 207 1992-04-24 HS Video
218 7 Saladino, Tyler Oral Roberts SS R/R 5’11” 180 1989-07-20 JR
248 8 Terry, Josef Cerritos College 2B L/R 5’11” 185 1989-12-18 J2
278 9 Moran, Kevin Boston College RHP R/R 6’04” 210 1989-07-07 JR Video
308 10 Wilson, Ross Alabama 2B R/R 5’11” 185 1988-11-09 JR Video
Comments: Wilson is the type of gritty college middle infielder who’ll get plaudits for being a real “ballplayer.” He knows how to play the game the right way and, despite some deficiencies in his game, always finds a way to get the job done. The type who plays above his tools, he wasn’t performing with the bat the way he had previously in his Alabama career. That might hurt him come Draft time some, though there are always teams interested in advanced infielders who have the kind of attitude Wilson has.
