ROUND THREE

76) Minnesota Twins Blayne Enlow, RHP, Sorrento, LA Full report

77) Cincinnati Reds Jacob Heatherly, LHP, Cullman, Alabama Full report

78) San Diego Padres Mason House, OF, Whitehouse, Texas Pop-up bat this spring

79) Tampa Bay Rays Taylor Walls, SS, Florida State University solid glove, bat was disappointing this spring but could rebound

80) Atlanta Braves Freddy Tarnock, RHP, Brandon, Florida Highly projectable, already hits 95 MPH

81) Oakland Athletics Nick Allen, SS, San Diego, CA Full Report

82) Arizona Diamondbacks Matt Tabor, RHP, Milton, Massachusetts Intriguing cold-weather arm

83) Philadelphia Phillies Connor Seabold, RHP, Cal State Fullerton Extremely polished, started throwing harder this spring

84) Milwaukee Brewers K.J. Harrison, C, Oregon State University One of the better college bats with questions about defense

85) Los Angeles Angels Jacob Pearson, OF, West Monroe, LA Projects to hit for average, has good speed, power potential, high upside for this slot

86) Colorado Rockies Will Gaddis, RHP, Furman University Good performance record, four pitches, ground ball type.

87) Chicago White Sox Luis Gonzalez, OF, University of New Mexico Good glove, runs well, on-base skills with gap power.

88) Pittsburgh Pirates Dylan Busby, 3B, Florida State University Impressive college performer with strong power from the right side, good record with wooden bats, chance to stay at third

89) Miami Marlins Riley Mahan, 2B, University of Kentucky Line drive hitter but likely limited to second base

90) Kansas City Royals Daniel Tillo, LHP, Iowa Western Community College strong athlete, with low/mid-90s fastball, high upside

91) Houston Astros Tyler Ivey, RHP, Grayson CC Live arm, mechanics need some work but high upside

92) New York Yankees Trevor Stephan, RHP, University of Arkansas Another strong college performer with impressive command

93) Seattle Mariners Wyatt Mills, RHP, Gonzaga University Strike-throwing closer, money-saving senior.

94) St. Louis Cardinals Scott Hurst, OF, Cal State Fullerton

95) Detroit Tigers Joey Morgan, C, University of Washington Major league glove, bat uncertain at higher levels

96) San Francisco Giants Seth Corry, LHP, Cedar Hills, Utah Live arm, but rather raw, considerable upside but will need time.

97) New York Mets Quinn Brodey, OF, Stanford Left-handed hitter with some power, some tweener risk but I think there is more upside here than commonly believed.

98) Baltimore Orioles Michael Baumann, RHP, Jacksonville University Can be inconsistent but both fastball and slider could be plus.

99) Toronto Blue Jays Riley Adams, C, University of San Diego Big power in the bat, but defensive questions. Full report.

100) Los Angeles Dodgers Connor Wong, C, University of Houston Solid glove, athletic, not a huge power guy but makes contact, gap strength

101) Boston Red Sox Brett Netzer, 2B, UNC-Charlotte Line drive hitter with good eye, second baseman at higher levels but chance to be a good hitter.

102) Cleveland Indians Johnathan Rodriguez, OF, Toa Baja, Puerto Rico raw tools type with prototype right field abilities, will need to polish skills.

103) Washington Nationals Nick Raquet, LHP, William and Mary 93-95 fastball, hard breaking ball but struggles to throw strikes.

104) Texas Rangers Matt Whatley, C, Oral Roberts Run on college catchers continues, another strong glove, bat questioned but chance for a fair bat with some pop

105) Chicago Cubs Keegan Thompson, RHP, Auburn University Tommy John survivor, throws strikes

ROUND FOUR

106) Minnesota Twins Charlie Barnes, LHP, Clemson University polished finesse lefty, should zip through A-ball

107) Cincinnati Reds Cash Case, SS, Mount Dora, Florida Very promising bat, may move to second or third

108) San Diego Padres Sam Keating, RHP, Fort Myers, Florida: Projectable high-ceiling right-hander, was mentioned as high as second round pre-draft

109) Tampa Bay Rays Drew Strotman, RHP, St. Mary’s (CA): Erratic command but good stuff

110) Atlanta Braves Troy Bacon, RHP, Santa Fe Community College

111) Oakland Athletics Will Toffey, 3B, Vanderbilt Very polished college hitter, good glove, hints of Matt Carpenter?

114) Milwaukee Brewers Brendan Murphy, LHP, Mundelein, Illinois Highly projectable

115) Los Angeles Angels John Swanda, RHP, Des Moines, Iowa Promising cold weather arm will need time, but high ceiling

116) Colorado Rockies Pearson McMahan, RHP, St. John’s River State College

117) Chicago White Sox Lincoln Henzman, RHP, University of Louisville Advanced college arm could move fast in bullpen

118) Pittsburgh Pirates Jason Delay, C, Vanderbilt University Senior with very good glove, useful budget pick.

119) Miami Marlins Colton Hock, RHP, Stanford University Successful college reliever but has a chance to start in pro ball

120) Kansas City Royals Michael Gigliotti, OF, Lipscomb Mentioned as a first round pick six months ago, spotty spring but could be very nice here.

121) Houston Astros Peter Solomon, RHP, University of Notre Dame Mentioned as second round pick four months ago, another possible bargain here despite spotty spring.

123) Seattle Mariners Seth Elledge, RHP, Dallas Baptist University
