Breaking Down The A's '11 Draft Class, 1-30

Get detailed information on the 2011 Oakland A's draft class here.

Round
1
Oakland Athletics
Player: Sonny Gray
Height: 6-11
Weight: 180
Hometown: Smyrna, TN
Current Team: Vanderbilt
Position: P
Bats: R
Throws: R
ANALYSIS: Sonny Gray is a hard-throwing right-hander with a plus curveball and a developing change-up. Some scouts see his 5'11''-frame and paint him as a closer, but the A's view him as a starter with three solid pitches already. He has pitched well on a big stage with Vandy and Team USA and receives high marks for his competitive nature. The A's have liked Gray since he was in high school and were happy to get him at this pick.

Round
3
Oakland Athletics
Height: 6-4
Weight: 200
Hometown: Biloxi, MS
Current Team: Southern Miss
Position: 3B
Bats: R
Throws: R
ANALYSIS: B.A. Vollmuth is a strong hitter who has shown the ability to hit for power with wood. A shortstop for much of his collegiate career, he moved to third for the Golden Eagles this year and also played some first base. Vollmuth does swing-and-miss a fair amount, but he has the potential to be a middle-of-the-order hitter who can play third.

Round
4
Oakland Athletics
Height: 6-3
Weight: 230
Hometown: Aptos, CA
Current Team: Cal Poly
Position: OF
Bats: R
Throws: R
ANALYSIS: Bobby Crocker is a toolsy athlete who has competed in the Cape Cod Summer League in addition to manning centerfield for Cal Poly. A re-draft by the A's, Crocker was originally taken in the 38th round by Oakland in 2008. He doesn't hit for a lot of power yet, but he has the build to be a power hitter down the road and the speed to stay in center.

Round
5
Oakland Athletics
Player: Beau Taylor
Height: 6-11
Weight: 200
Hometown: Rockledge, FL
Current Team: Central Florida
Position: C
Bats: L
Throws: R
ANALYSIS: Taylor hit .325 with 47 RBIs this season. He is a patient hitter. Taylor has a strong throwing arm and is athletic behind the plate. He is a similar player to current A's prospect Ryan Ortiz, but not quite as tall and a left-handed hitter.

Round
6
Oakland Athletics
Height: 6-2
Weight: 190
Hometown: Wailuku, HI
Current Team: Feather River JC
Position: OF
Bats: B
Throws: R
ANALYSIS: A native of Hawaii, Alexander had to work hard to be recruited by teams in the States. He is committed to the University of Washington for the 2012 season. A cousin of Shane Victorino, Alexander also plays centerfield. He is a solid hitter with good speed and a line-drive swing.

Round
7
Oakland Athletics
Height: 6-4
Weight: 220
Hometown: Osage City, KS
Current Team: South Dakota State
Position: P
Bats: R
Throws: R
ANALYSIS: The Kansas native has bounced around a bit in college, attending three different schools. He is already 22 and will turn 23 later this month. However, he has excellent arm strength and his fastball has been clocked in the mid-90s. The A's did well in taking an older pitcher from Dakota Wesleyan in 2006 and the A's hope for a similar return from Treinen as they got from Ben Jukich.

Round
8
Oakland Athletics
Height: 7-6
Weight: 200
Hometown: Riverside, CA
Current Team: Cal State Fullerton
Position: P
Bats: L
Throws: R
ANALYSIS: Colin O'Connell is a lanky right-hander with a similar build to A's 2010 draft picks Matt Thomson and A.J. Griffin. Mostly a starter for Fullerton this season, he has been a starter and a reliever in college. In 2011, he had a 2.44 ERA and 55 strike-outs with only eight walks. His fastball sits in the low 90s and he gets good sink on the pitch. He also has a good slider that serves as his out-pitch.

Round
9
Oakland Athletics
Player: Jace Fry
Height: 6-0
Weight: 190
Hometown: Beaverton, OR
Current Team: Southridge HS
Position: P
Bats: L
Throws: L
ANALYSIS: Jace Fry is the A's first high school pick in the 2011 draft. The left-hander is an Oregon State recruit. He was one of the top high school prospects coming out of the Pacific Northwest in this draft. Fry dominated in high school, striking out 92 in 59 innings. Fry's Little League team finished third in 2006 in the LLWS. He isn't a big kid, but he already hits 90 with his fastball and he has a good curveball. Fry's command is advanced for a pitcher his age.

Round
10
Oakland Athletics
Height: 6-11
Weight: 195
Hometown: Bakersfield, CA
Current Team: Fresno State
Position: OF
Bats: R
Throws: R
ANALYSIS: Robinson was the WAC Player of the Year. The Bulldog led the conference in homeruns (14) and slugging percentage (.658). Robinson isn't a big guy (5'11'') and his build is similar to that of former A's OF Nick Swisher. Robinson runs well and has a strong arm. He is a high-effort player. His swing can get long and he is prone to the strike-out.

Round
11
Oakland Athletics
Player: Chris Lamb
Height: 6-1
Weight: 185
Hometown: Berkeley, CA
Current Team: Davidson
Position: P
Bats: L
Throws: L
ANALYSIS: Lamb is a Berkeley native and a graduate of Berkeley High. He struck-out 85 batters in 81.2 innings for Davidson this season. An athletic and intelligent southpaw, Lamb hides the ball well and can touch 92 with his fastball.

Round
12
Oakland Athletics
Height: 6-2
Weight: 190
Hometown: Rocky Mount, NC
Current Team: NC State A&T
Position: OF
Bats: R
Throws: R
ANALYSIS: Xavier Macklin has a compact, muscular frame. He is the all-time homerun leader for NC State A&T. He has a hard, almost violent swing that generates a lot of power. Macklin has a patient approach. He has good speed, as well, although he may eventually have to move off of centerfield to a corner outfield position.

Round
13
Oakland Athletics
Player: Jake Tanis
Height: 6-1
Weight: 195
Hometown: Peachtree City, GA
Current Team: Mercer
Position: 3B
Bats: R
Throws: R
ANALYSIS: Another power hitter, Jacob Tanis hit 37 homers over his last two seasons with Mercer. He was a draft-eligible sophomore last year and was selected by the Rockies in round 26, but he decided to return to Mercer. Tanis hit well in the wood bat Northwoods League last summer and should make a smooth transition to the pros.

Round
14
Oakland Athletics
Player:
Height: 6-3
Weight: 225
Hometown: Palm Beach Gardens, FL
Current Team: Stetson
Position: C
Bats: R
Throws: R
ANALYSIS: The second catcher taken by the A's in the draft, Nick Rickles was named to the semi-final list for the Johnny Bench award for the top catcher in the country for this season. He is an excellent contact hitter, homering four more times (11) than he struck-out (7) this season. Rickles has a strong arm and good hands and was a strong defensive catcher for Stetson this season.

Round
15
Oakland Athletics
Player: T.J. Walz
Height: 6-1
Weight: 180
Hometown: Omaha, NE
Current Team: Kansas
Position: P
Bats: R
Throws: R
ANALYSIS: T.J. Walz was actually the A's final pick last season but he elected to return to Kansas for his senior season. The righty is the school's all-time leader in innings pitched, strike-outs and wins (tied). He had 85 strike-outs in 90.1 innings for the Jayhawks this season. Walz's best pitch is his breaking ball. He also has a 88-91 MPH fastball that he uses to set-up his off-speed pitches.

Round
16
Oakland Athletics
Height: 6-0
Weight: 150
Hometown: Simi Valley, CA
Current Team: UNLV
Position: P
Bats: R
Throws: R
ANALYSIS: Tanner Peters is a diminutive right-hander who was a workhorse for UNLV. He won the Mountain West Pitcher of the Year award and struck-out 99 in 112.1 innings. His ERA was 1.36. Peters isn't a hard thrower, but he mixes his pitches well and has a good feel for the strike-zone.

Round
17
Oakland Athletics
Height: 6-0
Weight: 200
Hometown: Simcoe, Ontario
Current Team: Canisius
Position: P
Bats: R
Throws: R
ANALYSIS: Sean Jamieson is a top-of-the-order hitter. He got on base regularly for Canisius and was frequently on the move. In 2011, he stole 22 bases in 25 chances. He also hit 13 homers and drove-in 51 runs. Jamieson has a strong arm and should be able to stay at shortstop.

Round
18
Oakland Athletics
Player: Brent Powers
Height: 6-2
Weight: 205
Hometown: Richardson, TX
Current Team: Sam Houston State
Position: P
Bats: L
Throws: L
ANALYSIS: Brent Powers had an outstanding senior season for Sam Houston State, striking out 70 in 53 innings and posting a 1.86 ERA. He features a hammer curveball and can reach 92 MPH from the left side. His delivery is a bit unusual and he may profile best as a reliever in the pros, although he was a starter in college.

Round
19
Oakland Athletics
Player: Eric Potter
Height: 6-4
Weight: 210
Hometown: Crofton, MD
Current Team: Maryland
Position: P
Bats: L
Throws: L
ANALYSIS: Eric Potter is another senior draft pick. The lefty recovered from a poor junior season to strike-out more than a batter an inning in 2011. He continued to struggle with his command, however, walking 48 in 65 innings, something that will have to improve at the next level. Potter has good arm strength and can touch 93 MPH from the left-side.

Round
20
Oakland Athletics
Height: 6-2
Weight: 215
Hometown: Des Pere, MO
Current Team: Michigan State
Position: P
Bats: L
Throws: R
ANALYSIS: Kurt Wunderlich won 10 games for Michigan State in 2011 and posted a 3.19 ERA. The right-hander isn't a strike-out pitcher, but he has good command and a four-pitch mix. His fastball sits in the low-90s and he throws a split-finger pitch, as well as a slider and a big breaking curveball.

Round
21
Oakland Athletics
Height: 6-11
Weight: 230
Hometown: Corona, CA
Current Team: Arizona State
Position: LB
Bats: L
Throws: R
ANALYSIS: Brandon Magee was easily the A's most unusual draft pick on Day Two. A talented athlete, Magee seems far more likely to be an NFL prospect than an MLB prospect. A linebacker on the ASU football team, Magee has not played much baseball at Arizona State, although he has been on the team throughout his time as a Sun Devil. The A's may be able to work out an arrangement with Magee whereby he plays baseball up until the summer camp begins for ASU football (he has one more year of eligibility). He is a raw baseball prospect, but he is talented and worth a flier at this spot.

Round
22
Oakland Athletics
Height: 6-2
Weight: 225
Hometown: Cheraw, SC
Current Team: Marshall
Position: OF
Bats: R
Throws: R
ANALYSIS: Rhett Stafford hit .320 with a team-leading 10 homeruns in 2011 for Marshall. He was announced as an outfielder, but he has also caught in college and could be looked at as a catcher in the A's system, as well. If he doesn't catch, he will be able to preserve his speed, which is above-average for his size. Stafford has good power to all fields.

Round
23
Oakland Athletics
Player: Cecil Tanner
Height: 7-6
Weight: 255
Hometown: Waycross, GA
Current Team: Georgia
Position: P
Bats: R
Throws: R
ANALYSIS: Cecil Tanner has arguably the most arm strength of any pitcher that the A's have drafted thus far, including first-round pick Sonny Gray. Tanner's fastball has been clocked as high as 98 MPH and he has an intimidating 6'6'', 255 pound frame that makes it difficult for hitters to get a gauge on the ball when he lets it go. Unfortunately, Tanner doesn't often know where it is going either. He walked more than two per inning in 2010 and this season walked 10 in only 3.2 innings. He would be a project, but the A's were able to harness Henry Rodriguez's command to the point that he was a major league reliever, so perhaps they could do the same with Tanner.

Round
24
Oakland Athletics
Player: Max Kuhn
Height: 6-11
Weight: 185
Hometown: Zionsville, IN
Position: SS
Bats: R
Throws: R
ANALYSIS: Only the second high school player chosen by the A's in the draft's first 30 picks, Max Kuhn will have to be signed away from his commitment to the University of Kentucky. He hit .494 with six homeruns during his senior year of high school and was one of the state of Indiana's top prospects in this draft. Kuhn was a two-way player in high school, but the A's see him as a shortstop and not as a pitcher. Without his college commitment Kuhn probably would have gone in the top five rounds of the draft. He isn't likely to sign, but if he did, he'd be a steal at this slot.

Round
25
Oakland Athletics
Height: 6-11
Weight: 195
Hometown: Erie, PA
Current Team: Tennessee Tech
Position: SS
Bats: L
Throws: L
ANALYSIS: A teammate of current A's prospect A.J. Kirby-Jones in college, Chad Oberacker was a 19th round selection of the St. Louis Cardinals last season but chose to return to school. He hit a career-high 10 homeruns and stole 14 bases while playing a solid centerfield. Oberacker has a plus throwing arm and was also a relief pitcher for the Golden Eagles.

Round
26
Oakland Athletics
Player: Sam Roberts
Height: 6-1
Weight: 195
Hometown: Prince George, VA
Current Team: VMI
Position: SS
Bats: L
Throws: R
ANALYSIS: Sam Roberts is the all-time hits leader for VMI. In a four-year career, he hit .341 with a .441 OBP. He walked more than he struck-out and he stole 41 bases. Roberts has a strong arm and improved defensively at shortstop every season at VMI. He also appeared in 51 games for the Cadets as a pitcher in his collegiate career.

Round
27
Oakland Athletics
Player: Derek Self
Height: 6-2
Weight: 210
Hometown: Cave City, KY
Current Team: Louisville
Position: P
Bats: R
Throws: R
ANALYSIS: Derek Self was a Cape Cod League All-Star last summer when he had a 2.36 ERA for the Chatham Angels. The righty is a control specialist who pitches to contact. He does a good job of keeping the ball on the ground, limiting the opposition despite not striking out a lot of hitters.

Round
28
Oakland Athletics
Height: 6-2
Weight: 200
Hometown: Charlotte, NC
Current Team: Elon
Position: P
Bats: R
Throws: R
ANALYSIS: Thomas Girdwood was a 15th-round selection by the Twins last season but he chose to return to Elon for his senior year. Girdwood was a record-breaking reliever for Elon, but he moved into the rotation this season. He had a 3.39 ERA in 16 starts, but his K:BB ratio was only 45:33. He is likely to be moved back into the bullpen as a pro.

Round
29
Oakland Athletics
Player: Nate Eppley
Height: 7-6
Weight: 210
Hometown: Dillsburg, PA
Current Team: Rider
Position: P
Bats: R
Throws: R
ANALYSIS: Nate Eppley is the younger brother of current Texas Rangers' prospect Cody Eppley. Nate is a tall, lanky right-hander who made 14 starts for Rider this season. Eppley may move to the bullpen, like his brother, in the pros.

Round
30
Oakland Athletics
Height: 6-6
Weight: 160
Hometown: Phenix City, AL
Current Team: Alabama
Position: P
Bats: R
Throws: R
ANALYSIS: At 5'6'', Nathan Kilcrease has had to prove doubters wrong at every level in which he has competed. A four-year player for Alabama, he was one of the Tide's most valuable pitchers. He had a career 3.21 ERA and 23 wins for the Tide. This season he was a starter and had 88 strike-outs in 101 innings. Kilcrease was a closer for the Tide in 2010 and he is likely to be a reliever in the pros. Despite his small stature, Kilgrease is not a finesse pitcher. His fastball has been clocked as high as 93 MPH.

[MEDTHUMBNAIL:935890]
Player: Eric Potter
Height: 6-4
Weight: 210
Hometown: Crofton, MD
Current Team: Maryland
Position: P
Bats: L
Throws: L
ANALYSIS: Eric Potter is another senior draft pick. The lefty recovered from a poor junior season to strike-out more than a batter an inning in 2011. He continued to struggle with his command, however, walking 48 in 65 innings, something that will have to improve at the next level. Potter has good arm strength and can touch 93 MPH from the left-side.

[MEDTHUMBNAIL:935890]
Height: 6-2
Weight: 215
Hometown: Des Pere, MO
Current Team: Michigan State
Position: P
Bats: L
Throws: R
ANALYSIS: Kurt Wunderlich won 10 games for Michigan State in 2011 and posted a 3.19 ERA. The right-hander isn't a strike-out pitcher, but he has good command and a four-pitch mix. His fastball sits in the low-90s and he throws a split-finger pitch, as well as a slider and a big breaking curveball.

CF Brandon Magee
Arizona State

[MEDTHUMBNAIL:428036]
Height: 6-11
Weight: 230
Hometown: Corona, CA
Current Team: Arizona State
Position: LB
Bats: L
Throws: R
ANALYSIS: Brandon Magee was easily the A's most unusual draft pick on Day Two. A talented athlete, Magee seems far more likely to be an NFL prospect than an MLB prospect. A linebacker on the ASU football team, Magee has not played much baseball at Arizona State, although he has been on the team throughout his time as a Sun Devil. The A's may be able to work out an arrangement with Magee whereby he plays baseball up until the summer camp begins for ASU football (he has one more year of eligibility). He is a raw baseball prospect, but he is talented and worth a flier at this spot.

[MEDTHUMBNAIL:935890]
Height: 6-2
Weight: 225
Hometown: Cheraw, SC
Current Team: Marshall
Position: OF
Bats: R
Throws: R
ANALYSIS: Rhett Stafford hit .320 with a team-leading 10 homeruns in 2011 for Marshall. He was announced as an outfielder, but he has also caught in college and could be looked at as a catcher in the A's system, as well. If he doesn't catch, he will be able to preserve his speed, which is above-average for his size. Stafford has good power to all fields.

RHP Cecil Tanner
Georgia
Click for more details [+]
[MEDTHUMBNAIL:935890]
Player: Cecil Tanner
Height: 7-6
Weight: 255
Hometown: Waycross, GA
Current Team: Georgia
Position: P
Bats: R
Throws: R
ANALYSIS: Cecil Tanner has arguably the most arm strength of any pitcher that the A's have drafted thus far, including first-round pick Sonny Gray. Tanner's fastball has been clocked as high as 98 MPH and he has an intimidating 6'6'', 255 pound frame that makes it difficult for hitters to get a gauge on the ball when he lets it go. Unfortunately, Tanner doesn't often know where it is going either. He walked more than two per inning in 2010 and this season walked 10 in only 3.2 innings. He would be a project, but the A's were able to harness Henry Rodriguez's command to the point that he was a major league reliever, so perhaps they could do the same with Tanner.

[MEDTHUMBNAIL:935890]
Player: Max Kuhn
Height: 6-11
Weight: 185
Hometown: Zionsville, IN
Position: SS
Bats: R
Throws: R
ANALYSIS: Only the second high school player chosen by the A's in the draft's first 30 picks, Max Kuhn will have to be signed away from his commitment to the University of Kentucky. He hit .494 with six homeruns during his senior year of high school and was one of the state of Indiana's top prospects in this draft. Kuhn was a two-way player in high school, but the A's see him as a shortstop and not as a pitcher. Without his college commitment Kuhn probably would have gone in the top five rounds of the draft. He isn't likely to sign, but if he did, he'd be a steal at this slot.

Current Team: Tennessee Tech
Position: SS
Bats: L
Throws: L
ANALYSIS: A teammate of current A's prospect A.J. Kirby-Jones in college, Chad Oberacker was a 19th round selection of the St. Louis Cardinals last season but chose to return to school. He hit a career-high 10 homeruns and stole 14 bases while playing a solid centerfield. Oberacker has a plus throwing arm and was also a relief pitcher for the Golden Eagles.

Current Team: VMI
Position: SS
Bats: L
Throws: R
ANALYSIS: Sam Roberts is the all-time hits leader for VMI. In a four-year career, he hit .341 with a .441 OBP. He walked more than he struck-out and he stole 41 bases. Roberts has a strong arm and improved defensively at shortstop every season at VMI. He also appeared in 51 games for the Cadets as a pitcher in his collegiate career.

Hometown: Cave City, KY
Current Team: Louisville
Position: P
Bats: R
Throws: R
ANALYSIS: Derek Self was a Cape Cod League All-Star last summer when he had a 2.36 ERA for the Chatham Angels. The righty is a control specialist who pitches to contact. He does a good job of keeping the ball on the ground, limiting the opposition despite not striking out a lot of hitters.

Hometown: Charlotte, NC
Current Team: Elon
Position: P
Bats: R
Throws: R
ANALYSIS: Thomas Girdwood was a 15th-round selection by the Twins last season but he chose to return to Elon for his senior year. Girdwood was a record-breaking reliever for Elon, but he moved into the rotation this season. He had a 3.39 ERA in 16 starts, but his K:BB ratio was only 45:33. He is likely to be moved back into the bullpen as a pro.

Player: Nate Eppley
Height: 7-6
Weight: 210
Hometown: Dillsburg, PA
Current Team: Rider
Position: P
Bats: R
Throws: R
ANALYSIS: Nate Eppley is the younger brother of current Texas Rangers' prospect Cody Eppley. Nate is a tall, lanky right-hander who made 14 starts for Rider this season. Eppley may move to the bullpen, like his brother, in the pros.

RHP Nathan Kilcrease
Alabama
Click for more details [+]
[MEDTHUMBNAIL:935890]
Height: 6-6
Weight: 160
Hometown: Phenix City, AL
Current Team: Alabama
Position: P
Bats: R
Throws: R
ANALYSIS: At 5'6'', Nathan Kilcrease has had to prove doubters wrong at every level in which he has competed. A four-year player for Alabama, he was one of the Tide's most valuable pitchers. He had a career 3.21 ERA and 23 wins for the Tide. This season he was a starter and had 88 strike-outs in 101 innings. Kilcrease was a closer for the Tide in 2010 and he is likely to be a reliever in the pros. Despite his small stature, Kilgrease is not a finesse pitcher. His fastball has been clocked as high as 93 MPH.
