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.
