Catching up on Wednesday’s picks.

MLB: San Diego Padres at Atlanta Braves Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

Here it is! Below are the players drafted, along with any unique notes.


11th round — Jerryell Rivera, LHP, Maria Teresa Piniero HS (Puerto Rico)

Hudson Belinsky of BA believes Rivera is an uber projectable lefty. Should be an interesting project arm to watch in the system.

12th round — Keith Rogalla, RHP, Creighton

Rogalla is ranked #155 by MLB Pipeline and was taken at 355th overall. Here’s their take.

Rogalla's arm works well and produces fastballs that park at 92-94 mph and reach 96. He can spin a solid curveball but lacks consistency with his breaking ball. He also has the makings of an effective changeup but needs to use it more often. With his three pitches, big league body and sound delivery, Rogalla has the ingredients to remain a starter at the next level. To do, he'll have to do a better job of repeating his mechanics and finding the strike zone. If he moves to the bullpen, his fastball could climb toward the upper 90s in shorter stints.

13th round — Kevin Williams, LF, Samford

14th round — Sam Fuller, RHP, Whitefield Academy

15th round — Hunter Brittain, C, T.R. Miller HS (AL)

Went to the same HS as our 5th rounder, Joseph Booker. Brittain caught Booker back in high school and now they get to be drafted by the same org.

16th round — Spencer Griffin, CF, Wharton County JC

17th round — Caleb Scires, CF, Navarro

18th round — Tyler Stevens, RHP, New Mexico

19th round — Isaac Mattson, RHP, Pittsburgh

20th round — Mitchell Traver, RHP, TCU

21st round — Devon Perez, RHP, Oklahoma

Perez ranked high here, which is remarkable given how late he was taken. He pitched quite well in college.

22nd round — James Ziemba, LHP, Duke

Has a funky sidearm delivery and is huge at 6-10, 240 pounds.

23rd round — Zachary Ryan, RHP, Georgia Tech

24th round — Harrison Wenson, C, Michigan

25th round — Matt Mccann, SS, Fairleigh Dickinson

26th round — Zane Gurwitz, 2b, UT — Austin

27th round — Brandon Sandoval, CF, Vanguard

28th round — Bernabe Camargo, SS, Galveston

29th round — Cobi Johnson, RHP, Florida State

30th round — Jeremy Beasley, RHP, Clemson

31st round — Jon Malmin, LHP, Texas

32nd round — David Mckinnon, 1b, Hartford

33rd round — Tyler Walsh, RHP, Belmont

34th round — Weston Smith, LHP, Sandra Day O’Connor HS (AZ)

High school players are unsignable from the 10-15th round onwards, but most MLB teams feel it’s worth the risk to draft them in the round 30s as lottery tickets, just in case they have a change of heart and decide to sign.

35th round — Brady Feigl, RHP, Ole Miss

36th round — Steven Rivas, OF, Etiwanda HS (CA)

37th round — Peyton Glavine, LHP, Blessed Trinity HS (GA)

Son of HOFer Tom Glavine.

38th round — Jacob Rogers, 3b, Liberty HS (TX)

39th round — Josh Hatcher, Lee County HS (GA)

40th round — Matt Russell, RHP, Staley HS (MO)
