There is some real first-round talent still on the board — including local kid Stetson Allie, who may have scared off clubs with bonus demands. [UPDATE: Pittsburgh selected Allie with the second pick of the day, before the Indians had a chance three picks later.] The Indians aren't afraid to spend a pick on a "flier" who will require a bonus well above slot, as they showed most clearly in 2008. Should be an interesting day.
2nd Round / 55 Overall — Levon Washington, OF/2B
Washington fits a couple of Indians patterns. Still six weeks away from his 19th birthday, he's a little younger than his peers. He's a JuCo guy, which the Indians haven't shied away from in the past. And unless I heard it wrong, they are going to try to move this CF to 2B, which they tried with former first-round pick Trevor Crowe and 2009 second-round pick Jason Kipnis — a disaster in Crowe's case but so far a success with Kipnis. Boras client.
3rd Round / 87 Overall — Tony Wolters, SS
A little surprising that Wolters was still available here — Keith Law at one point had him going in the first round to the Angels at #30 overall, and the Braves also were reportedly high on him. It's possible some teams missed seeing him in the final week, as he's caught up in a minor eligibility snafu. Wolters is touted as a big "plays the game the right way" guy — could be the next Pedroia, could be the next Inglett. He stole 25 bases in 25 attempts this season. Tomorrow is Wolters' 18th birthday.
4th Round / 120 Overall — Kyle Blair, RHP
Occasionally dominant, with occasional control problems. Great slider, seen as low ceiling overall but might have the mix of pitches to stick as a starter.
5th Round / 150 Overall — Cole Cook, RHP
Another college pitcher with a tall frame that could fill out, this one out of Pepperdine.
6th Round / 180 Overall - Nicholas Bartolone, SS
2nd year, small-bodied Juco middle infielder
7th Round / 210 Overall - Robbie Aviles,RHP
Highly thought of high school pitcher. Dropped because of torn ligament in pitching elbow.
8th Round / 240 Overall - Alexander Lavisky, C
Stetson Allie's battery-mate at St. Ed's
9th Round / 270 Overall - Jordan Cooper, RHP
Guess where he's from?...Wichita State. Guess who else is from Wichita State?
10th Round / 300 Overall - Tyler Holt, CF
Florida State CFer. Fast, I guess.
