I find it interesting that we drafted 5 pitchers in the first 13 rounds, but all were RHP. Last year, everyone seemed to be a RHP.

No worthwhile LHP??

I think, correct me if I'm wrong, there were a lot of LHP in this draft but they went in the 1st and Supplemental rounds...I don't think there were a lot left after that point.

Nice summary of Dave Williams here:
http://www.sny.tv/news/article.jsp?ymd=20070606&content_id=1430834&vkey=1

Dave Williams, RF, Rutgers — Frazier's teammate on the Scarlet Knights, Williams was actually the team leader in batting average with a .412 mark. Hill calls Williams "an outstanding athlete with excellent baseball skills — he runs well, throws well."
Drafted by the Diamondbacks out of high school, Williams was also selected by the Marlins in Round 36 last year but failed to come to terms. With an impressive senior campaign, Williams has improved his stock and looks to be a 10th-20th round pick this time around.

Agreed, but I think the more pressing need was bats in the organization.

If every time their pick came up there was a bat out there that they liked considerably more than a LHP, and they are willing to pay them, I'm totally content with that.

A snippet on Mahoney:
http://prospectsplus.baseballamerica.com/content/264103.html


Righthander Daniel Mahoney emerged as the second-best prep player in the state thanks to his projectable 6-foot-4 frame and quick arm. Mahoney pitches in the 86-88 mph range with his fastball and runs it up to 88-90, and he has good feel for a curveball, though it remains inconsistent. He has committed to Connecticut and is likely to head to school.

Ryan Zink RHP from Univ. of Chicago...Have to love these last names.

scooterfan
06-08-07, 01:52 PM
THIS is interesting... a guy who just had TJ in 2006- was considered a top 5 round prospect:

http://72.14.209.104/search?q=cache:Baslw_LlkC0J:www.perfectgame.org/crack_of_the_bat/patrick_ebert/06_04_13_ryan_zink_mind_over_matter/+Ryan+Zink&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=3&gl=us&lr=lang_en&client=firefox-a


The spring of 2006 wasn’t supposed to start the way it did for Ryan Zink. A talented young right-handed pitcher for the University of Illinois-Chicago, Zink was considered a potential top-five round selection in the upcoming June Amateur Free Agent Draft. As we all know, life is full of surprises, and during one bullpen session in mid-February Ryan felt a “tweak” in his throwing elbow. Concerned, he stopped throwing, and that tweak was identified as a slight tear of the UCL tendon in his throwing elbow. No pitcher wants to hear “Tommy John,” but fortunately for Ryan, more and more pitchers come back from Tommy John surgery quite often better than ever. He talked to me about the set-back, what his plan of attack is for his road to recovery, and what kind of pitcher he is determined to once again become.

06-08-07, 02:02 PM
no idea. i havent heard anything new recently about either peavey or grandal but both of their stocks were falling before the draft. this late their might be signability issues since both are headed to good baseball programs.

carpenter was a risky pick because of injuries but i dont think anybody expected him to fall this late. i even heard some rumors about the giants taking him in the 1st round before the draft so i have no idea how he has fallen this far but he would be an absolute steal this late.

Some good stuff on him - another junior

Here's a scouting report from last year:
http://72.14.209.104/search?q=cache:kC8wz6IuW0AJ:www.perfectgame.org/crack_of_the_bat/david_rawnsley/06_04_20_nebraska_baseball_notes/+Wehrle%2BNebraska%2Bbaseball&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=6&gl=us&lr=lang_en&client=firefox-a


SS Ryan Wehrle (Nebraska): Wehrle another PG League player is also a draft eligible sophomore, only by age instead of red shirt status like Watson. He doesn’t have the real speed and quickness to play shortstop at the pro level for me, but he should have all the tools to be a very good third baseman. Wehrle is a top level hitter, though, and has a swing that is better tuned to wood bats than most you’ll see at the college level. He’s short and crisp to the ball and while he has “only” 4 home runs this year, you can see the power and bat speed to project him gradually developing this area of his game. I have no clue to his signability and wouldn’t want to speculate, but with the dearth of quality college position players in this draft, scouts have to take Wehrle very seriously


Another solid signability pick

Whoa - was dismissed from his team!

He was draft eligible but decided to stay another year because tony did and he thought next year he'd be picked higher. So if he doesnt get drafted in the first 10 rounds he's going to Cal St.

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) _ The mother of former Nebraska shortstop Ryan Wehrle says her son is headed to Cal State Fullerton if he isn't selected in the top ten rounds of next month's major-league draft. Nebraska coach Mike Anderson kicked Wehrle off the team for undisclosed reasons on May sixth. Sue Wehrle says her son is back home in Papillion and working out in preparation for his next opportunity. Wehrle was a preseason All-American this year, but batted just .241 in 43 games. The Cincinnati Reds drafted Wehrle in the 18th round last year after he hit .367 with eight home runs in 2006. Wehrle would be a senior in eligibility if he goes to Fullerton next season.

35. Justin Snyder, of (National rank: 191)
School: San Diego. Class: Jr.
B-T: L-R. Ht.: 5-9. Wt.: 190. Birthdate: 4/8/86.Scouting Report: Snyder is a solid all-around athlete and grinder who should go in the first six rounds to a statistically oriented club. A three-year starter for San Diego, he has been the ignitor behind overachieving offenses. He's a lefthanded-hitting second baseman who can play center field, as he did in the Cape Cod League last summer, but mostly he's a top-of-the-order pest who draws walks (35 or more every season at USD, always ranking in the top five in the West Coast Conference). Despite his size, Snyder has solid gap power and won't get the bat knocked out of his hands. He needs to play the short game better, particularly bunting, and if he does he'll be a solid No. 2 hitter. Snyder runs well but isn't as aggressive stealing bases as scouts would like. Defensively, he's sound at second, where he profiles best, and quick enough to play center field.

Snyder praised on the Cape Cod League website:
http://www.capecodbaseball.org/Weekly/Week2006/ThisWeek/thisweek_1Sep2006.htm


Justin Snyder (San Diego) and Matt Cusick (USC) were also on the All-Star team and were huge factors in the Whitecaps’ success. Snyder had 14 RBIs this summer and was one of the best defensive players on the team.

1.<!--[endif]-->Chris Carpenter, rhp (National rank: 31)
School: Kent State. Class: So.
B-T: R-R. Ht.: 6-4. Wt.: 210. Birthdate: 12/26/85.Scouting Report: In a draft short on attractive college righthanders, Carpenter was surging up draft boards. The highest-drafted pitcher (seventh round, Tigers) from the 2004 draft who's still in college baseball, he has made a strong comeback from a pair of elbow operations. He blew out his elbow throwing a 93 mph fastball as a freshman, requiring Tommy John surgery in May 2005, and had scar tissue cleaned out of the joint last June after missing the 2006 season. He sat out the fall and eased back into the Kent State rotation this spring, delivering his two strongest outings in his last two starts of the regular season. Carpenter pitched from 93-97 mph with a lively fastball and hit 96 mph as late as the sixth inning. He also flashed a quality curveball and showed feel for a changeup. His command and secondary pitches are inconsistent, though that's to be expected from someone who has pitched 30 innings over the last two seasons. The effort required to come back from Tommy John surgery has brought out the best in Carpenter, who previously cruised on his natural talent. He works harder and is in much better shape than he was as a freshman, tightening up his 6-foot-4, 200-pound frame. Carpenter had pitched his way into the sandwich round and could sneak into the first round, with the Giants (who have multiple early picks) showing the most interest in him. Though he's a draft-eligible sophomore, he shouldn't be difficult to sign.

more on wehrle, lots of drama here

http://www.nebsports.com/2007/05/06/ryan-wehrle-no-longer-on-the-baseball-team/


I was just looking at that link and saw this comment:


I am not a fan of Husker baseball or Coach Anderson, but I think he hit the nail on the head with his dismisal of Ryan Wehrle. It is no secret that Wehrle has had a problem with his work ethic since day one at NU, and lack of work ethic has finally pushed him out of the program. I was not at the game saturday, but I would bet he failed to run hard on his last pop up and the coach was fed up with his seeming lack of interest in the team aspects of the game. Lazy ballplayers are a cancer in the clubhouse and need to be dealt with to keep the rest of the team together. I wish Ryan the best and I am sure he will do better in the dog eat dog play for yourself minor leagues, but will never make it past AA unless he learns to work hard every day. He has the talent, now he needs to learn how to use it!!

06-08-07, 02:46 PM
this is from Keith Law's chat....
What's your take on Chris Carpenter? He sure did slide...

Keith Law: (2:30 PM ET ) Arm strength guy who has no fb command, terrible control (31 K and 30 BB this year in 46 IP), and a thick medical dossier. But to get a guy who throws 97 mph in the 18th round? No-brainer. The expected value of that pick is infitesimal. Roll the damn dice.


Doug (NY): You said you liked the Brackman pick for the Yanks. Does that mean you don't believe he has arm issues? Or even with potential arm trouble, he's still a value pick at 30?

Keith Law: (2:16 PM ET ) The latter - even if he needs TJ surgery, which is the worst-case scenario, the recovery rates are high. And if he doesn't have the arm trouble, then it's a question of getting his delivery back to where it was in the summer of '06.

Blurb on Peavey - committed to Oregon State
http://blog.oregonlive.com/beavers/baseball/


While Oregon State has signed Peavey to a letter of intent, and everyone is saying that he will indeed play for the Beavers, You can't overlook the current MLB draft coverage that may indicate otherwise.
ESPN senior baseball analyst, Keith Law (http://sports.espn.go.com/keyword/search?searchString=keith_law), compiles a regular top-100 list of draft eligible players (http://insider.espn.go.com/mlb/insider/columns/story?columnist=law_keith&id=2858780&action=login&appRedirect=http%3a%2f%2finsider.espn.go.com%2fmlb%2finsider%2fcolumns%2fstory%3fcolumnist%3dlaw_keith%26id%3d2858780) which has often included Peavey's name as well as the names of many other current Oregon State players and recruits (more on this below). Despite Peavey's fall in the rankings (currently No. 57 compared to his No. 28 ranking in late February (http://proxy.espn.go.com/ncaa/columns/story?columnist=law_keith&id=2772067)) as the date of the draft creeps closer (June 7), You never know how things might turn out. For example, A team convinced of Peavey's ability could make him a legitimate offer, and he might sign if he didn't think a year in college would garner him a better contract. Of course, this is all hypothetical. All signs point to him playing <del>at least a year</del>, so hopeful Beaver fans will have another Northwest talent to cheer for that is staying close to home.

(I messed up here. I should have said at least the next three years. Players who don't sign after being drafted, and attend a 4-year college, are not draft eligible again until after their junior year. Sorry for the confusion, and thanks to readers Aaron and orangexpress for letting me know about the mistake)

Looks like a tough sign

<TABLE cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=2 width=533 border=0><TBODY><TR><TD>3. Greg Peavey, rhp (National rank: 111)
School: Hudson’s Bay HS, Vancouver, Wash. Class: Sr.
B-T: R-R. Ht.: 6-2. Wt.: 185. Birthdate: 7/11/88.</TD></TR><TR><TD>Scouting Report: Few high school players have had an amateur career like Peavey's. He was hitting 90 mph when he was 14, played in the 2000 Little League World Series and was a member of USA Baseball's youth and junior national teams. He has hit 94 mph regularly with his fastball, complementing it with a quality hard slider that has reached the low 80s. The slider's a plus pitch, with depth to go with its velocity. However, scouts agree Peavey pitched better as both a sophomore and junior, and few see much projection left in his 6-foot-2, 195-pound frame. "He is what he is" was a common refrain. Peavey's max-effort delivery may be difficult to tame. Some thought he was pitching for the radar gun this spring, resulting in increased effort in his delivery as well as decreased velocity. Peavey's first-round expectations and Scott Boras representation complicate his signability, leaving Oregon State hopeful its recruit might actually end up on campus.</TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>

More good stuff on Peavey:
http://72.14.209.104/search?q=cache:b-d39kTUlQoJ:www.oregonlive.com/prepbaseball/oregonian/index.ssf%3F/base/sports/1175657118232970.xml%26coll%3D7%26thispage%3D3+Greg%2BPeavey%2BBaseball%2Bdraft&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=4&gl=us&lr=lang_en&client=firefox-a

On the field, Peavey compares favorably with past first-round picks out of Vancouver: Hudson's Bay's Tom Hartley (1979, 21st overall, Chicago White Sox) and Ty Howington (1999, 14th overall, Cincinnati).
"He's refined. I can't think of anyone that stands above him," says Tad Thompson, who played at Hudson's Bay, coached at Skyview and for the Vancouver Cardinals and has been a fixture of Clark County baseball for the past 25 years.
"As a pitcher, he's as dominant as anyone -- as dominant as Howington. Even if he didn't work at it, he'd still be one of the best players around. But he does work at it. Greg has an exceptional work ethic."
Where Peavey will be drafted will have less to do with his talent than the ability for teams to sign him to a contract. The draft considers high school and college players and Peavey, because he has a scholarship with Oregon State, has some leverage that might affect his draft status.
"I will do what's best for me," he says. "Right now, I am signed with OSU and I am looking forward to playing there."
Peavey has command of three pitches, and his fastball has been clocked at 96 mph. In his first start this season, he threw 61 pitches in five innings, struck out 10, walked one, gave up one bunt single and was timed between 88 and 92 mph consistently. He also is a prospect at third base.
"Last year he made a play on a ball to the left of third base and he was parallel to the ground," Stebbins says. "Then he was athletic enough to throw the ball across the diamond. That play never gets made at the high school level. I turned to the other kids in the dugout and told them to appreciate what they just saw."
"Talent-wise, he could be a position player in college," says Jackson Evans, an Oregon State freshman who met Peavey playing soccer as 10-year-olds and shared the infield with him throughout their youth. "He has great athleticism and he will do anything to win."

Greg Peavey attacks hitters with a power repertoire. His fastball sits near 94 mph and his 79-82 mph slider has hard, late snap. He has a quick arm, repeatable delivery and outstanding mound presence. As a junior at Hudson's Bay High, Greg played third base and was the team's top pitcher. On the mound, he went 9-0 with a save and 0.54 ERA. He racked up a school-record 112 strikeouts in 65 innings while allowing 26 hits and 10 walks. He also batted .388 with a .474 on- base percentage, 10 extra-base hits and 26 RBI’s. He was one of more than 200 prospects in attendance at Perfect Game's National Showcase in Fayetteville, Ark., in June, where he was ranked by Baseball America's Prospects Plus as the No. 10 prospect. He also pitched at USA Baseball's Tournament of Stars. Greg was limited during his sophomore season at Hudson's Bay because of a quadriceps injury, but he had a strong summer, earning a spot as one of just two juniors named to USA Baseball's junior national team. In Mexico with Team USA, he was 1-0 with a 1.80 ERA, striking out four in three relief appearances. As a freshman, Greg posted a 7-1 record with a 2.13 ERA in 49 innings and struck out 64. He batted .422 with 20 RBI’s in 64 at-bats. Greg played on USA Baseball's youth national team, which earned a silver medal at the Pan Am Championship in Aguascalientes, Mexico. He compiled a 1.88 ERA in two starts, both against Cuba, including the gold-medal game. Greg competed in the 2000 Little League World Series and has also participated in a Babe Ruth World Series. He was honored with a distinguished scholastic award as a junior, compiling a 3.5 GPA.

What makes the Lugo thing even funnier is, how well Alex Gonzalez is doing for the Reds this year.

Dont forget edgar renteria
The sox are paying half of his salary to hit .319 for the Braves

And Orlando Cabrera that they didnt resign after winning the world series
Hes hitting .333 for the Angels

A bit on Kiley:
http://www.naplesnews.com/news/2007/jun/06/mlb_draft_fgcu_figures_lose_couple_players/


A native of Palm Harbor who was a four-year starter for the Eagles, Kiley (6-5, 235) was 7-6 with a 3.49 ERA last season. He had 84 strikeouts against just 18 walks in 87.2 innings.

Tollett said he fielded several calls from scouts about Kiley last week.

"I think his stock has risen greatly," Tollett said.

What is most intriguing about Kiley?

"Of course, his size and his velocity," Tollett said.

Big guy - ideal pitcher's frame... wonder about the competition level.

So, am I correct to list the following as the signability, high-ceiling guys?:

- Brackman
- Suttle
- Sublett
- Grote
- Krum
- Angelini
- Carpenter
- Peavey

Any I'm missing?

25 more picks to get Lemahieu, Grandal, Tepesch, Cook, Thompson, Goeddel, Henley and Danieli...

thompson and henley are gone if we are talking about the same guys

1 of the 2 catchers right?

Edit: and the 13th or so round pitcher Manuel Barrett or something was a signability guy, and maybe Howes (I forget if he's a college junior or senior)

I think he was considering going to school but he was happy where he was drafted and by the Yankees per the interview (this could be BS hes saying, but who knows)

No. He said in his interview yesterday that he's skipping ASU and signing with the Yanks pronto.

Keith Law’s chat….
http://proxy.espn.go.com/chat/chatESPN?event_id=16125 (http://proxy.espn.go.com/chat/chatESPN?event_id=16125)
What’s your take on Chris Carpenter? He sure did slide…
Keith Law: (2:30 PM ET ) Arm strength guy who has no fb command, terrible control (31 K and 30 BB this year in 46 IP), and a thick medical dossier. But to get a guy who throws 97 mph in the 18th round? No-brainer. The expected value of that pick is infitesimal. Roll the damn dice.
Doug (NY): You said you liked the Brackman pick for the Yanks. Does that mean you don’t believe he has arm issues? Or even with potential arm trouble, he’s still a value pick at 30?
Keith Law: (2:16 PM ET ) The latter - even if he needs TJ surgery, which is the worst-case scenario, the recovery rates are high. And if he doesn’t have the arm trouble, then it’s a question of getting his delivery back to where it was in the summer of ‘06.
Kyle (Boston, MA): The Yanks just took Greg Peavey, whats the chance they can sign him away from Oregon State?
SportsNation Keith Law: (2:56 PM ET ) Slim - I think in part because he didn’t have a good spring and so they’re not likely to be willing to offer him enough. Really, he should go to OSU.

In that case you could sing - "I fought the Law... and I won"

Seriously - it's all about how badly the Yankees want these guys - and what these guys think they're worth.

I figured there was a 0% shot of getting Robertson signed... and here we are

wherle said before the draft if he didn't go in the first ten rounds he is going to CSU Fullerton. i highly doubt we sign him and after the reports and news i read about him that might be a good thing, guy sounds like a cancer.

Just got back from my meeting and can't believe we got Carpenter and Peavey. What's more, I remember when Zink was a big topic of conversation years ago where some wanted to draft him and rehab him! What a draft! Cash wasn't kidding!

========
....and we all know that you're not allowed to be happy. It's supposed to be fun. Why else would you invest your time and emotion in it.

BTW, while I think Torre has worn out his welcome, I doubt there would be much difference in this year's record with another manager. He's not a pitcher, and he isn't the one sticking pins into Yankee voodoo dolls. That said, if they begin to win now, Torre won't be the cause of that either.

Now back to the draft.
