Baseball America Projects The First Round

Baseball America attempted to project the entire first round of the June amateur draft.  Their top ten:

1. Rays – Tim Beckham, SS.
2. Pirates – Pedro Alvarez, 3B.
3. Royals – Buster Posey, C. 
4. Orioles – Brian Matusz, LHP.
5. Giants – Justin Smoak, 1B.
6. Marlins – Kyle Skipworth, C.
7. Reds – Aaron Crow, RHP.
8. White Sox – Gordon Beckham, SS.
9. Nationals – Yonder Alonso, 1B.
10. Astros – Shooter Hunt, RHP.

BA is in agreement with Jonathan Mayo on picks #2, 4, 6, 7, and 8.  Plus we can assume that Mayo wouldn’t have chosen Scheppers for Houston had Scheppers’ injury been fully realized at the time.
