Sickels @ MLBall:

1S) Keenyn Walker, OF, Central Arizona JC: With no first-round pick, the White Sox went a super-speedy junior college outfielder with a rapidly improving bat. He has some power potential too, and a good glove in center field. I like him.

2) Erik Johnson, RHP, California: Cal-Berkeley pitcher works at 90-94 and has an impressive slider. Curveball and changeup need work if he wants to remain a starter. Workhorse body.

3) Jeff Soptic, RHP, Johnson County Community College: Clocked as high as 100 MPH, but slider and changeup are inconsistent. Very high upside in his 6-6 frame but needs polish. …

Other AL Central Draft reviews: Cleveland, Detroit, Kansas City, Minnesota.

Detroit’s Draft budget must be lower than even ours. KC’s draft class is full with High School players.
