2010 Mock Draft: Supplemental Round

New, 38 comments

Here is the supplemental round. As yesterday, this is meant to stimulate discussion. With a month to go before the draft, an actual prediction is pointless.

33) Houston Astros: Aaron Sanchez, RHP, Barstow High School, California
       Excellent athlete and very projectable, could easily go higher than this. Would provide some high school leavening for college picks in the first round.

34) Toronto Blue Jays: Todd Cunningham, OF, Jacksonville State University
       Has decent tools but should be affordable, important for the Jays with multiple picks following last year.

35) Atlanta Braves: Cam Bedrosian, RHP, East Coweta HS, Senoia, Georgia
       Home state and home team connection for a live-armed pitcher, a perfect fit for the Braves.

36) Boston Red Sox: DeAndre Smelter, RHP, Tatnall Academy, Macon, Georgia
       The Red Sox have the money to buy him away from Georgia Tech, and his athleticism and arm strength are very impressive.
37) Los Angeles Angels: Reggie Golden, OF, Wetumpka High School, Alabama
      The Angels went with a toolsy outfielder in Mike Trout last year, and while Golden's lack of height should keep him out of the first round, he definitely fits into their development philosophy.

38) Toronto Blue Jays: Micah Gibbs, C, Louisiana State University
      He won't need a lot of time in the minors, provides defense with a decent bat, and will be attractive to a team with multiple picks and a budget.

39) Boston Red Sox: James Paxton, LHP, Grand Prairie
       Hard to know how he ranks until we get to see him pitch when the independent leagues start up, but I can see the Red Sox being attracted to the marvelous K/IP and K/BB marks he posted in college as much as his lively arm from the left side.

40) Los Angeles Angels: Taijuan Walker, RHP, Yucaipa High School, California
       Excellent athlete with projectability, and should be signable.

41) Toronto Blue Jays: Addison Reed, RHP, San Diego State University
       He's polished, affordable, throws hard, and won't take long to reach a major league bullpen.

42) Tampa Bay Rays: Stetson Allie, RHP, St. Edward High School, Olmstead Falls, Ohio
       I would love to see what the Rays pitching development program could do with an arm like this one.

43) Seattle Mariners: Hunter Morris, 1B, Auburn
      The best impact bat left on the board at this point.

44) Detroit Tigers: Asher Wojchiechowski, RHP, The Citadel
       He's big, throws hard, and has shown consistent improvement. Fits the Tigers pattern.

45) Texas Rangers: Jedd Gyorko, 3B, West Virginia University
      Assuming that the Rangers will go for affordable college picks, Gyorko offers a good mixture of performance and value at this point in the draft. I have them going with pitchers with the first two picks, so a hitter makes sense to provide balance.

46) St. Louis Cardinals: Barret Loux, RHP, Texas A&M
      Has an injury history but his performance this year has been excellent.

47) Colorado Rockies: Rob Rasmussen, LHP, UCLA
      The Rockies usually prefer college picks early, so Rasmussen balances out the choice of high school pick Gausman in the first round. Rasmussen, despite his short stature at 5-10, has a live arm and a great curveball.

48) Detroit Tigers: Adam Plutko, RHP, Glendora High School, Upland, California
     Projectable righthander who is somewhat raw, but would pair well with the more polished Wojchiechowski.

49) Texas Rangers: Austin Wates, OF, Virginia Tech
     Like Gyorko, Wates seems a logical pick for the Rangers considering their number of picks and their financial situation. He's toolsy and flashes enough skills to slot here.

50) St Louis Cardinals: Tony Wolters, SS, Rancho Buena Vista High School, Vista, California
      Excellent makeup, a bit undersized but polished, but would certainly attract me if I were the Cardinals.
