2010 MLB Draft: Top 250 College Position Player Prospects

The list doesn’t follow exactly along with earlier position-by-position rankings (check the links on the left side of the page for more info) because I’ve done some tweaking over the past few weeks. College RHPs (I think I’m going 250 deep on that list…) and combined college pitcher rankings should be up either later today or tomorrow. High school rankings will be pumped out pretty consistently over the course of the weekend, so check back over the next 48 hours for that. In the meantime, here are some college guys. Oh yeah, one last thing – the recommendations on guys I missed left in the comments section or via email were all excellent. I’ve always been slow to make decisions, so give me another day or two to mull everything over before I’m ready to begin inserting a few of the players into the position-by-position rankings and, in the case of a few players, into the list below…

6/5/2010 EDIT: With apologies to Southern Mississippi SR C Travis Graves (bumped from the list) and previously jilted Rutgers fans (I kid) alike, Pat Biserta cracks the list at number 85. Thanks to all who left comments alerting me to his omission. This may sound really corny, but I’m sort of proud to know there are so many knowledgeable readers willing to go to bat for their guy out there. I’m lucky that instead of having one person who edits my stuff for me, I have any number of the X amount of viewers who stop by here on a daily basis who do the job for free. Thanks, again.

  1. darren says:

    either stop posting about rutgers players or learn the game,cause how do you leave Pat Biserta whos gonna get drafted between 5th and 10th rd most likley,a first team big east selection and all american candidate with 18HR 17 doubles and batted 370,

    • Rob Ozga says:

      I missed on Biserta, plain and simple. With a list this big, sometimes prospects fall through the cracks. I’m pretty certain you still won’t love where I have Biserta on the rankings, but I think that’s the best spot for a defensively challenged though admittedly powerful potential bench bat to go. Thanks for bringing the omission to my attention.

  2. Thomas says:

    Looking at the top 250 player prospects. Where does Drew Poulk from NC State fit into the mix? The kid had an awesome season and has some stories on the internet about how his tools rate.

  3. Thomas says:

    Also, seeing all of the other NC State people up here, the only one with comparable stats is Dallas Poulk. And I am not sure how Russell Wilson made the top 100 with limited playing time this year and not much to show for the time he did play. Sure he has great athletic ability but either you can hit or you cant.

    • Rob Ozga says:

      Drew strikes me as a darn fine college player who will have trouble translating his game to the pros. You need to have a boatload of tools to project as a big leaguer when you are a corner outfielder who a) doesn’t walk, and b) strikes out a ton. You could maybe argue his raw power rates as a big league tool and I’d be alright calling his arm a 55/60, but that’s all. I saw him play in 2007 with UNC and 2009 with State, so maybe something has clicked for him in 2010 that I can’t really speak to. Perfect Game has also alluded to character concerns with Drew, but, again, that’s not something I can’t really speak to.

      Dallas, however, I like. He’s got more projection in his bat and more value defensively. I don’t think he goes off the board before round 15 or so, but he could be a solid organizational player who advances one rung at a time up the ladder through the minors. With a little luck, there could be a utility future there.

      Your concerns about Wilson’s bat are certainly valid. For me, if a guy can’t hit then I don’t much care about anything else. In Wilson, however, I see a player who has shown glimpses of all five tools, including the bat, at one point or another, iffy college production be damned. It’s doesn’t seem really fair that raw college guys with lesser production get picked over the Drew Poulk’s of the world, but that’s the reality of draft day. What will you do is more important than what you have already done.

      • Rob Ozga says:

        By the way, I’m about to publish the top 250ish college RHP list and I think some of the State fans will like Buchanan’s placement on the list…

  4. Thomas says:

    Thanks for the insight. Seems strange how he was one of the top 100 ranked HS players in 2005 out of high school.

  5. Mike says:

    What about George Washington SS Tom Zebroski. He was the A10 POY and 3rd team TPX/Lousiville Slugger All-American.

  6. Bruce Breger says:

    Do you see Shaun Kort from University of Nevada Reno going anywhere in the draft?

  7. Miguel says:

    darren, while I agree that Biserta should’ve been on the list somewhere behind his accomplishments this season but Rob is not as far off the mark as you so strongly imply. I checked another thorough draft reporter like MLB Bonus Baby, Andy Seiler and his list of the top 755 players (that’s about the first 30rds) and he doesn’t mention Biserta at all from Rutgers. Who knows, you might be right but I doubt you know more than that guy Seiler, very well respected by MLB. Other than that here, I think Rob made some good calls on the list and for Rutgers. Clearly some of it is accomplishment and some of it clear-enough potential and projection, which is all a part of the game. Good job Rob.

  8. Mark Hiemstra says:

    I don’t see his name anywhere but understand he may be a mid round pick;do you have anything on TJ Blanton of Bowling Green? He seems to have hit quite a few of the NCAA top 150 in most of the major batting categories. Thanks

    • Rob Ozga says:

      Unfortunately, I think Blanton is a long shot to get taken this year. No stat is the be-all and end-all of college baseball, but teams really do weigh any set of numbers that show the ability of controlling the strike zone. Blanton’s ugly K/BB numbers will really hurt him. I think he’s got enough of the power/speed combo that teams look for to maybe be on the edge of his seat hoping to get taken in the last ten rounds as a senior sign, but fear that he’ll simply be passed over for players with more professional projection.

  9. nolan says:

    rob, where do you see wright state university rhp sr. alex kaminsky projected to go. he had his best outings vs. the best competition in out of conference games like virginia,giving danny hultzen his only loss in 2010, clemson, oklahoma st. etc. he is a control and command pitcher who throws strikes.
    was in the 88-92mph range last 2 months of the season.
    15bb/88k in 98 IP.

  10. Thomas says:

    Back to Drew Poulk. Seems like your view on him is a little inconsistent with the other top ranked outfielders on the list. If you look at the stats for ACC teams for the entire year, Drew is tied for first (with Dallas)for most hits (91), second in doubles (21), top 10 in RBI and Home Runs. Compared to other such as Tyler Holt, Kyle Parker, Tony Plagman (understand he is 1st base) the numbers are better or equal and for the strikeout, all are around 44. Drew had 8 assist from RF this year and after attending almost all of the games, should have been in the realm of 13-14 if the catcher had of held on to the ball at the plate. Speed of 6.65-6.7 in the 60 appears to be better than average based on other reports I have seen.

  11. Miguel says:

    Rob, you’re first day was pretty good. As to your Day Two Board, 300 guys, how do you think the Rutgers players listed will do today?
