- The Angels picked University of Utah first baseman C.J. Cron, a right-handed slugger who hit .434 with 15 HR and 59 RBIs. He went 17th overall.
Update: Cron has announced his intention to sign quickly; his advisor is former Angels pitcher Scott Sanderson. It's probably for the best, because apparently he played through a shoulder tear this year. Nice.
His pro debut will likely be delayed until 2012, according to Bill Plunkett.
- The Dodgers got lefty Chris Reed from Stanford with the 16th overall pick. He could be a conversion project, as some people think he may be a second or third starter once stretched out.
