I expect four Kevin Youkilis' and eight Carl Crawfords' to be drafted today. Day 3 is what seperates the boys from the men who like to look at boys. How hard of a prospect humper are you?

Their 33 picks on the first two days have been split ~50/50 between college (17) and high school players (16). Comparing to previous years through 30 rounds:

2010: 19 HS (6 signed), 13 college (10 signed)

2009: 14 HS (8 signed), 16 college (13 signed)
2008: 20 HS (9 signed), 12 college (12 signed)
2007: 18 HS (10 signed), 13 college (11 signed)
2006: 11 HS (6 signed), 22 college (18 signed)
2005: 12 HS (5 signed), 21 college (20 signed)

FWIW, juco and community college players (which number a few a year at most) are lumped in with the 4-year college draftees.

Local draftee:

John Magliozzi, RHP, from Dexter School in Brookline to the Rays at pick 1080 in the 35th Round. He's a Florida commit.

Round 32 (982):
Julius Gaines, SS, Luella HS

Florida International was hoping to get a top Georgia recruit in infielder Julius Gaines, who battled a shoulder injury all year that made him tough to evaluate. Gaines hurt his shoulder pitching but is a hitter all the way, with a chance to play shortstop with a solid-average arm and good infield actions. He's an average runner out of the box and above-average under way, and scouts have to do some projecting on his bat. For some, he lacks a plus tool. His injury may make him a summer follow, especially for a team with extra picks.

Is there a draft tracker that allows you sort selected prospects by home state?

Not yet. BA will likely it available for 2011 draftees after its completion.

Corey Vogt, rhp, Keene St. was just selected in the 39th round. Vogt was brought into Fenway last week for a workout:



- Last week the Sox worked out Keene State right-hander Corey Vogt at Fenway Park. Vogt, a lifelong Yankees fan, reportedly joked with general manager Theo Epstein before taking to the mound.

I told him you better draft me if Im doing this for you, Vogt said about pitching on the Fenway Park mound.

On the year, the reliever was 3-2 with a 2.82 ERA. Vogt had an impressive 30 strikeouts in 22 1/3 innings.

The Ironmen have a strong junior class, and this year's top prospect is lefthander Jordan Gross, who is committed to Tulane. His fastball can range from 85-90 mph and he shows a solid curveball with some shape. He isn't considered signable, but scouts are intrigued to see what he could turn into in three years.

Sox 28th rounder in 08. Was seen as a top round talent back then that fell to signability. Yet another high school kid that should have taken the money.

Samuel Wolff, SS, College of Southern Nevada
6'1", 170


Listed as a SS, but pitches as well.

Righthander Sam Wolff was a rare high school prospect from South Dakota in 2009 and pitched just 16 innings at San Diego last year before transferring to Southern Nevada. At 6-foot-2 and 195 pounds, he has power stuff, including a fastball that sits 91-92 mph and tops out at 95. The ball explodes out of his hand and shows good two-seam action when he throws it in, and cutting action when he throws it to his glove side. Wolff also mixes in an above-average slider and a changeup that has a chance to be average. He's a quality athlete with a good delivery and is committed to New Mexico.

A great story out of Houston. Buddy Lamothe, a Lyndon, VT native, was paralyzed in a swimming accident near his San Jacinto JC campus. He was drafted in the 40th round by the Astros and GM Ed Wade. Wade is a class act for doing this.

Not a lot more info on him, but he went to a local baseball academy. Also talked to a former teammate of his, and he swears his name is "Ben", not Sean. Maybe a nickname based on his middle name or something.

The Rangers did something similar. They drafted Johnathan Taylor from Georgia in the 33rd round. He was paralyzed in an on-field collision with Zach Cone in March. Cone was selected by the Rangers 37th overall.
