    BA update on 2006 first round

    2006 FIRST ROUND DRAFT PICK UPDATE
    1. Luke Hochevar Royals Double-A Wichita
    Is struggling for the first time in short pro career

    2. Greg Reynolds Rockies Double-A Tulsa
    Is dominating at Double-A with outstanding command

    3. Evan Longoria Devil Rays Double-A Montgomery
    Hasn't had a home binge like last year, but up to 215 pounds, slugging above .500

    4. Brad Lincoln Pirates Disabled list
    Won't pitch again until 2008 after having Tommy John surgery on his elbow

    5. Brandon Morrow Mariners Seattle
    Having command issues, but his high-90s fastball has taken him on a rocket ride to big leagues

    6. Andrew Miller Tigers High Class A Lakeland
    Made majors last year, is struggling recently in stint with Lakeland

    7. Clayton Kershaw Dodgers Low Class A Great Lakes
    High schooler is dominating Midwest League, making bid for midseason promotion to Inland Empire

    8. Drew Stubbs Dodgers Low Class A Dayton
    Strikeouts (every 3.1 at-bats) still a big concern and isn't dominating low Class A as you would expect a three-year college vet to do

    9. Bill Rowell Orioles Disabled list
    After strong 2006 debut has missed first month with oblique injury

    10. Tim Lincecum Giants San Francisco
    His 0.29 ERA for Triple-A Fresno nearly defies belief; quickly earned a spot in Giants rotation

    11. Max Scherzer Diamondbacks Independent Fort Worth
    Unsigned first-rounder makes his official independent league debut on Saturday

    12. Kasey Kiker Rangers Extended spring training
    Expected to join low Class A Clinton in the not-too-distant future

    13. Tyler Colvin Cubs High Class A Daytona
    Poor strikeout-to-walk ratio is only knock against former Clemson star

    14. Travis Snider Blue Jays Low Class A Lansing
    Has hit from the get-go of his pro career, and is in the running for Midwest League batting title.

    15. Chris Marrero Nationals Low Class A Hagerstown
    Move to left field means he'll have to hit a ton as he advances, and he's starting to

    16. Jeremy Jeffress Brewers Extended spring training
    Flame-thrower proved last season (5.88 ERA) that he's a long ways away

    17. Matt Antonelli Padres High Class A Lake Elsinore
    Has handled move to second while continuing to hit for average, power still a question

    18. Kyle Drabek Phillies Low Class A Lakewood
    Getting a rough introduction to life in low Class A

    19. Brett Sinkbeil Marlins Disabled list
    Made two starts in Jupiter before going on disabled list with forearm tightness

    20. Chris Parmelee Twins Low Class A Beloit
    Strikeouts (every 2.5 at-bats) have been a problem

    21. Ian Kennedy Yankees High Class A Tampa
    Polished college pitcher has easily handled debut in Tampa

    22. Colton Willems Nationals Extended spring training
    Righthander could be in Hagerstown at some point this year

    23. Max Sapp Astros Low Class A Lexington
    Power potential hasn't turned into power production yet; has thrown out 30 percent of basestealers

    24. Cody Johnson Braves Extended spring training
    Bad stint in Gulf Coast League last year (.184/.260/.281) made it clear the Braves will have to be patient

    25. Hank Conger Angels Low Class A Cedar Rapids
    Is hitting for power, but struggling to throw out runners (has caught 18 percent of basestealers

    26. Bryan Morris Dodgers Disabled list
    Righthander won't be back until 2008 after Tommy John surgery

    27. Jason Place Red Sox Low Class A Greenville
    Strikeouts (every 2.5 at bats), batting average (.188) are causes for concern, but he is a high schooler in his first full season

    28. Daniel Bard Red Sox Disabled list
    Nothing was working for him in Lancaster before he headed to the disabled list with a strained tricep

    29. Kyle McCullouch White Sox High Class A Winston-Salem
    Safe pick has been solid but unspectacular for Winston-Salem, which kind of fits his pre-draft scouting report

    30. Adam Ottavino Cardinals High Class A Palm Beach
    Ottavino's plus fastball has dominated Florida State League hitters

    Funny that the Cubs pick of Colvin was roundly mocked both here and around baseball - yet that seems like a pretty good pick a year on. Shows how fickle and hard to judge the draft is day of.

    The draft will always be a crap shoot.
