Re: Jonathan Mayo projects the first 20 picks
I'd still like the REDS to take Big Ten Pitcher-of-the-Year RHP Zach Putnam:
Putnam collects the Big Ten Pitcher of the Year award after going undefeated on the mound during the regular season. In 10 starts, the junior righty is 7-0 with six wins coming in league action. Putnam had back-to-back 12-strikeout outings to open Big Ten play and is tied for fourth in the conference with 65 overall K's this year.
Note that Zach Putnam was also 1st Team Big-Ten DH this year.
