2010 MLB Draft: Who Will Be Drafted? Atlantic 10 Edition

Players are obviously grouped according to school, but there is no rhyme or reason to the actual order. Potential top-five round selections in bold. Any player on the list that absolutely shouldn’t be there? Any clear misses? Any players on my own list of near-misses (below) that deserve to be promoted to the first list? Any recommendations for next conference breakdown?

  1. Charlotte JR 1B/OF Ryan Rivers
  2. Charlotte SR C/OF Zane Williams
  3. George Washington JR RHP Eric Cantrell
  4. George Washington SR SS Tom Zebroski
  5. St. Louis SR RHP Bryant Cotton
  6. Dayton SO LHP Cameron Hobson
  7. Dayton SO RHP Burny Mitchem
  8. Rhode Island SR RHP Tim Boyce
  9. Duquesne JR RHP/3B Andrew Heck
  10. Richmond JR OF/RHP Billy Barber
  11. Richmond SR 3B Cameron Brown
  12. Richmond SR RHP Ian Marshall

I really like the Charlotte pair (Rivers and Williams) and the two “big name” pitchers (Cantrell and Hobson) both look like legit big league prospects to me. Marshall is the hardest thrower of the group. Best future prospect of the group is Dayton FR RHP Ian Gardeck (2012) with a fastball peaking in the mid-90s and a good slider.

  1. (Charlotte SO OF Shane Brown)
  2. (Charlotte JR OF Justin Wilson)
  3. (Charlotte JR RHP Joe Yermal)
  4. (Charlotte JR RHP Bryan Hamilton)
  5. (Charlotte SR RHP Patrick Lawson)
  6. (Charlotte SR RHP Kelly McLain)
  7. (Charlotte JR 3B/SS Kevin Gillespie)
  8. (Charlotte JR OF Cory Tilton)
  9. (George Washington SR 2B Sean Rockey)
  10. (George Washington JR OF Brendon Kelliher)
  11. (George Washington SR 1B Chris Luick)
  12. (St. Louis SR 1B Danny Brock)
  13. (St. Louis JR OF Jon Myers)
  14. (St. Louis SR C Ben Braaten)
  15. (Dayton SR OF Aaron Dunsmore)
  16. (Dayton SR SS Cole Tyrell)
  17. (Rhode Island JR OF/1B Tom Coulombe)

  19. (St. Joseph’s SR 2B David Valesente)
  20. (Fordham SR OF Mike Mobbs)
  21. (Duquesne SR C/1B Mark Tracy)
  22. (Xavier JR OF John McCambridge)
  23. (Xavier JR LHP Tommy Shirley)
  24. (Xavier JR SS Phil Bauer)
  25. (Richmond SR LHP Matt Zielinski)
  26. (Richmond SR SS Victor Croglio)
  27. (Massachusetts SR 2B Eric Fredette)
  28. (Massachusetts SR OF Mike Donato)
  29. (St. Bonaventure JR SS Jesse Bosnik)
  30. (Temple JR SS Adrian Perez)


  1. Houston says:

    How is Tommy Shirley on the near miss list? He is throwing 94 mph and is left handed and his control seems to be there. Comparing him to the players on your first list, he is at least equal if not better than all of them.

  2. Ralph Mckluskey says:

    You do not see ben thomas being drated at all? He was top five in rbi homeruns and led the league in slugging last year and his season has begun to turn around. How can you leave him off this list?

  3. Richmond Baseball Fan says:

    Just to correct a minor misspelling, Richmond’s junior leftfielder is Billy Barber (not Butler). Barber is now batting .415 with 54 hits in 130 at bats. His 23-game hitting was the 4th longest in the nation and he continues his streak of reaching base safely in the past 32 games straight. One last note, he may be one of the few players to ever be named a National Player of the Week (Louisville Slugger) as a freshman and a National Pitcher of the Week (National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association) as a junior. H elooks like a sure-fire top 10 round pick. This kid can flat out hit! We watched him hit a ball over the tallest tree in left at Richmond–the ball must have gone about 480 feet! great power, big frame, sub-7.0 60-yard dash and he is a heck of a side-arm pitcher too! This kid does it all for the Spiders! Best of luck to him!

    Also look for Mike Mergenthaler (1B), Ian Marshall (RHP) and down the road look for Adam McConnell and Phil Ruzbarsky! Enjoy the draft! Mr. T, Chesterfield, VA

  4. Donald says:

    Where on earth is James Swinkleton? He is a stud with 98 mph stuff, and a great attitude!
    Go James!
