2013 First-Year Player Draft

Recommended Posts

Once again, the Angels first pick in the upcoming draft won't be until the 2nd round, 59th overall. Their second pick will be 95th overall. So two picks in the first 100 selections and 3 in the first 130.


With a damn near empty farm system, and a weak Major League pitching staff, the Angels need to turn to ML-ready college arms.

    Jason Hursh, RHP (Oklahoma State)
    Nick Petree, RHP (Missouri State)
    Buck Farmer, RHP (Georgia Tech)
    Ryan Eades, RHP (LSU)
    Sam Moll, LHP (Memphis)
    Kevin Ziomek, LHP (Vanderbilt)
    Bobby Wahl, RHP (Ole Miss)
    Chris Anderson, RHP (Jacksonville)
    Alex Gonzalez, RHP (Oral Roberts)
    Brian Radziewski, LHP (Miami)
    Kent Emanuel, LHP (North Carolina)

    Ben Lively, RHP (Central Florida)
    Corey Littrell, LHP (Kentucky)
    Kyle McGowin, RHP (Savannah State)
    Aaron Blair, RHP (Marshall)
    Andrew Mitchell, RHP (TCU)
    Patrick Boling, LHP (Georgia)
    Tyler Nurdin, LHP (Oklahoma State)
    Scott Frazier, RHP (Pepperdine)
    Austin Voth, RHP (Washington)
    Nolan Belcher, LHP (South Carolina)

For not having a pick in the top 100 they did well in last year's draft. Really well actually.


If they can have a similar draft again this year, their lower levels will be stocked.


To the peanut gallery their farm system will still look bad because they mostly pay attention to the higher levels.

Unless they can sign David Price after 2014 (still only 28), no more big money signings please for the next 4-5 years.

If they were to sign Price, it would be for a Weaver type deal. then he would end up undergoing TJ surgery a month into the season.

The Angels' bonus-pool money is $2,998,200, which ranks 29th in the Majors. For their first selection (59th overall), they were given $942,000; for their second (95th), it's $541,000.



TOTAL $2,998,200   AVG. $333,133
