11th round - Jacob Amaya, SS
South Hills High School (West Covina, CA)
Amaya is a Cal State Fullerton commit, ranked No. 243 overall in the Baseball America top 500 draft prospects. BA noted, “Defensively he is solid across the board at shortstop. Amaya has talent but lacks a carrying tool, which some evaluators believe will stall him at higher levels.”
12th round - Andre Jackson, RHP
Jackson is the second Utah pitcher drafted by the Dodgers, with Riley Ottesen going in the fifth round on Tuesday. The right-handed Jackson missed all of 2017 after Tommy John surgery.
Utah coach Bill Kinneberg last week told Dirk Facer of the Deseret News that Jackson is "going to give an organization a really good arm to project and mold. His surgery and rehab have gone great.”
13th round - Marshall Kasowski
West Texas A&M
The right-hander led the nation in strikeouts (165) and strikeouts-per-nine (15.91) in 2017, and finished second in voting for the Brett Tomko Award, given annually to the top pitcher in Division II. He was a transfer from Houston.
14th round - Josh McLain, OF
North Carolina State
The junior hit .311/.3352/.471 with 21 doubles, six home runs, and 11 steals in 2017.
15th round - Marcus Chiu, 2B
