No. 40 Pick: Houston Astros Select UC Irvine RHP Andrew Thurman
A good value selection, Thurman boasts four pitches that he can throw in any count with a ton of confidence. He is a low-ceiling, high-floor pitcher who could end up as a decent No. 3 starter when all is said and done.
No. 41 Pick: Chicago Cubs Select Missouri LHP Rob Zastryzny
Zastryzny has a decent fastball-curveball combination, but lacks a consistent third pitch to get left-handed hitters out. He will have to find a third pitch to remain in the rotation, as his stuff doesn't profile well in relief.
No. 42 Pick: Colorado Rockies Select Mater Dei HS 3B Ryan McMahon
McMahon has very good pop from the left side, which will help the Rockies replace the pick they thought they could get earlier when Kris Bryant went No. 2 overall. He has good bat speed and profiles well at third with a good arm and lateral movement.
No. 43 Pick: Minnesota Twins Select LSU RHP Ryan Eades
A more typical Minnesota draft pick, Eades is a solid pitcher with an above-average fastball and changeup, control over all his pitches and a good feel for a breaking ball that is still developing.
No. 44 Pick: Miami Marlins Select Arizona State RHP Trevor Williams
Williams has a solid three-pitch mix but doesn't miss as many bats as you would like for someone who can touch 94 with his fastball. He projects as a good No. 4 starter in the big leagues.
No. 45 Pick: Boston Red Sox Select Seminole State JC RHP Teddy Stankiewicz
Stankiewicz was taken by the Mets last year, but didn't sign and went to a junior college to be eligible for this year's draft. He has a good fastball already and plenty of room to grow at just 19 years old.
No. 46 Pick: Kansas City Royals Select Northwest Mississippi Community College LHP Cody Reed
Reed is very raw with some upside as a No. 3 starter with a very good fastball and frame to build on. He needs to work on spotting his fastball and developing consistency with his off-speed stuff.
No. 47 Pick: Toronto Blue Jays Select Woodford County HS RHP Clinton Hollon
The Blue Jays love projectable arms, so Hollon makes perfect sense for them. He already has a plus fastball and a good changeup, but lacks a consistent breaking ball and the control is really lacking right now.
No. 48 Pick: New York Mets Select Basic HS RHP Andrew Church
Church is also an unpolished thrower at this point, with an above-average fastball and a developing changeup-curveball combination that could make him a solid mid-rotation starter at his peak.
No. 49 Pick: Seattle Mariners Select Stanford OF Austin Wilson
Loaded with tools but hobbled by injuries this season, Wilson dropped because of a poor season. He has tremendous tools, with big power and arm strength. He was a first-round talent who fell because of an inconsistent season.
No. 50 Pick: San Diego Padres Select Gilbert HS SS Dustin Peterson
The brother of DJ Peterson, Dustin is a better athlete and will play second base in professional baseball in the future. He has a good feel for hitting already with some pop in his bat, and has quick-twitch actions at shortstop but a fringe arm that will push him over to second.
No. 51 Pick: Pittsburgh Pirates Select Dana Hills HS LHP Blake Taylor
The Pirates are betting on a lot of upside in this draft, with Taylor showing a good fastball already and a strong 6'3", 210-pound frame. He needs to develop his off-speed stuff, but is young and has the kind of frame to pitch 200 innings in a season.
No. 52 Pick: Arizona Diamondbacks Select Terrebonne HS SS Justin Williams
Williams is a big-body 17-year-old at 6'3", 215 pounds, meaning he is not going to stick at shortstop. He has some of the best power in the draft, but a big swing leaves a lot of questions about how much he will be able to tap into it during games.
No. 53 Pick: Philadelphia Phillies Select California C Andrew Knapp
In a weak draft for college catchers, Knapp was the best of the bunch but doesn't project as more than a fringe starter. He has some knowledge of the strike zone, but won't hit for average or power. His defense is solid behind the plate, with a good throwing arm and some athleticism. He could be a backup on a first-division team.
No. 54 Pick: Milwaukee Brewers Select Hazelwood West HS RHP Devin Williams
The Brewers really nailed this pick. Williams has a great fastball already and a solid curveball, especially for a high schooler. He is 6'3", 165 pounds with a ton of projection. He could be a No. 2 starter.
No. 55 Pick: Chicago White Sox Select Durant HS RHP Tyler Danish
Danish uses a three-quarters arm slot and doesn't project as a starter due to inconsistent command and inability to get on top of the fastball. He could end up as a late-inning reliever with a power fastball and a "slurvy" breaking ball that still needs work.
No. 56 Pick: Los Angeles Dodgers Select Minnesota LHP Tom Windle
Despite what Tommy LaSorda said on the draft telecast, Windle is not a hard thrower. He is a control pitcher with a good feel for the strike zone and a solid fastball-breaking-ball combination. His ceiling is that of a No. 4 starter.
No. 57 Pick: St. Louis Cardinals Select Gaither HS SS Oscar Mercado
The best defensive shortstop in the draft, Mercado would have been a first-round selection if he could hit. He is very slight at 6'1", 175 pounds and doesn't produce much loud contact with the bat, though he does have some bat speed and can hit line drives.
No. 58 Pick: Detroit Tigers Select Vanderbilt LHP Kevin Ziomek
The Tigers broke their tradition by going with a finesse left-handed pitcher. Ziomek has good potential as a pitcher who can change speeds to keep hitters off balance, but doesn't blow you away with anything.
No. 59 Pick: Los Angeles Angels Select Warren East HS LHP Hunter Green
Green is another first-round talent with high upside. He will add more velocity to his fastball in the future and has a decent breaking ball already. He projects as a No. 3 starter in the future.
No. 60 Pick: Tampa Bay Rays Select Desert Ridge HS SS Riley Unroe
If Unroe's body can stick at shortstop, he will be a great value pick. He is already 6'0", 180 pounds, but has good offensive potential with some polish and the kind of bat speed that should produce average power down the road.
No. 61 Pick: Baltimore Orioles Select Santiago HS C Chance Sisco
Sisco is a good hitting catcher with projection. He has bat speed and quick hip rotation to generate some pop with the bat. His biggest asset on defense is a plus throwing arm, but he still needs to work on receiving.
No. 62 Pick: Texas Rangers Select West Florence HS RHP Akeem Bostick
Bostick has a big arm with a plus fastball, but he is all arm and doesn't incorporate his lower half into the delivery enough to project as a starter right now. He also lacks an effective off-speed pitch, but the Rangers love projectable arms.
No. 63 Pick: Oakland Athletics Select Oklahoma LHP Dillon Overton
Jonathan Gray's teammate, Dillon Overton, was thought to be the first-round pick between the two this year. Then his stuff took a step back, as his fastball looked average and the off-speed offering wasn't as crisp. If he can get back to his old self, he is a potential No. 2 starter.
No. 64 Pick: San Francisco Giants Select Watauga HS 3B Ryder Jones
Jones is a projectable high school third baseman with a quick stroke to the ball and power that projects as plus down the line. He is a decent athlete who could stick at third, but may end up in right field.
No. 65 Pick: Atlanta Braves Select Miami Dade CC C Victor Caratini
Caratini has a very good swing from the left side, though he is a switch hitter, with an ideal catcher frame at 6'2", 205 pounds. He has athleticism and arm strength to stick behind the plate.
No. 66 Pick: New York Yankees Select Rancho Bernardo HS 2B Gosuke Katoh
A reach at this spot because Katoh has limited athleticism and virtually no power in his swing. He will have to hit for a high average and get on base to be an everyday player, as well as prove he can be an above-average defender at second.
No. 67 Pick: Cincinnati Reds Select Gahr HS 3B Kevin Franklin
Franklin is the definition of an all-or-nothing hitter right now. He starts his swing very early and is able to wait back, but he is going to have trouble adjusting to off-speed stuff. He can hit the ball a mile when he makes contact, but how often is he going to do that?
No. 68 Pick: Washington Nationals Select Dallas Baptist HS RHP Jacob Johansen
Johansen could end up as a reliever thanks to a big fastball and huge frame at 6'6", 235 pounds. He doesn't have any other pitch in his arsenal, so he will need to develop something in order to pitch at the back of games, but the arm strength and speed are incredible.
