2006 Season Two Draft Review- First Supplemental Round

Once again, grades are just one fan's opinion and are based on performance, not future ceiling.  I do consider HS vs college draftees and level of play.  Comparisons of performance between different levels is difficult and quite subjective.

  1.  Preston Mattingly, LAD, SS/2B.  Low A:  .210/.251/.297.  Grade D.
  2.  Pedro Beato, Bal, RHP.  Low A:  7-8, 4.05, 142.1 IP, 59 BB, 106 K, GO/AO= 1.55.  Grade C.
  3.  Emmanuel Burriss, SF, SS.  High A:  .165/.237/.180, 17 SB, 3 CS.  Low A:  .321/.374/.381, 51 SB, 15 CS.  AFL:  .365/.450/.423, 8 SB, 1 CS.  Grade B.  This was a tough one to grade.  Does Burriss' good AFL showing make up for his poor start in High A?
  4.  Brooks Brown, Arizona, RHP.  High A:  6-3, 2.81, 80 IP, 23 BB, 74 K, GO/AO= 1.75.  AA:  4-4, 3.66, 66.1 IP, 36 BB, 54 K, GO/AO= 1.45.  Grade B.  Walks hurt after move up to AA and he appears to be the type of pitcher who needs good control.  Still, moving up the ladder nicely.
  5.  Kyler Burke, SD, OF.  Low A:  .211/.305/.268.  SS:  .254/.340/.446.  HWBL:  .333/.402/.483 in 87 AB's.  Grade C.  HWBL tends to be a pitching dominant league.  Is Burke a breakout candidate for next season?
  6.  Chris Coghlan, Fla, 2B.  Low A:  .325/.419/.534.  High A:  .200/.277/.331.  AFL:  .329, 407/.425.  Grade B.  Again, does the AFL showing make up for the weak High A numbers?
  7.  Adrian Cardenas, Phi, SS.  Low A:  .295/.354/.417, 20 SB, 7 CS.  Grade B+.  You don't hear much about Cardenas, but he is doing some good things, especially if he's a future SS.
  8.  Cory Rasmus, ATL, RHP.  Rookie:  0-0, 8.59, 7.1 IP, 5 BB, 3 K.  Grade Incomplete.  Out with shoulder surgery.  Can he hit like his brother?
  9.  David Huff, Cle, LHP.  High A:  4-2, 2.72, 59.2 IP, 15 BB, 46 K.  AFL:  1-1, 6.06, 16.1 IP, 3 BB, 15 K.  Grade B.  Good showing in high A  cut short by some sort of injury.  Appeared healthy in Arizona.
  10.  Kris Johnson, Bos, LHP.  High A:  9-7, 5.56, 136 IP, 57 BB, 100 K, GO/AO=1.31.  Grade C.  Gets some sort of credit for hanging in there in nightmarish pitching conditions in Lancaster, CA.
  11.  Joba Chamberlain, NYY, RHP.  Minors:  9-2, 2.45, 88.1 IP, 27 BB, 135 K!  MLB:  2-0, 0.38, 24 IP, 6 BB, 34 K.  Grade A!  What an inspired pick here by the Yanks!  In fact, both Kennedy and Chamberlain were, in retrospect, great risks to take at the spots where the Yanks  were picking.  Gotta give credit where it's due.
  12.  Chris Perez, St.L, RHP.  AA:  2-0, 2.43, 40.2 IP, 28 BB, 62 K, 27 Saves.  AAA:  0-1, 4.50, 14 IP, 13 BB, 15 K, 8 Saves.  Grade B.  Obviously being groomed as a closer.  Are the walks going to be a problem?
  13.  Steve Evarts, ATL, LHP.  SS(Appy):  4-0, 1.75, 37 IP, 4 BB, 34 K, GO/AO= 1.96.  Grade B.  Atlanta taking it slow with it's HS draftees, but they have an excellent development track record.
  14.  Caleb Clay, Bos, RHP.  SS:  1-0, 2.14, 21 IP, 6 BB, 9 K.  Grade C.  Small sampe size in short season league, but is Clay the most promising of Boston's first 4 2006 draftees?
