Cardinals Mayo: Jackson Kowar, RHP, Florida -- Some think Kowar has better raw stuff than his teammate, Singer, albeit with less polish. Kowar's top two pitches are his fastball and changeup, which could remind some in Cardinals Nation of Michael Wacha. Callis: Shane McClanahan, LHP, South Florida -- Unless one of the premier high school pitchers slide this far -- which isn't uncommon -- a college arm is the most likely pick. 20. Twins Mayo: Shane McClanahan, LHP, South Florida -- The Twins are said to be mostly looking at college arms or high school bats, so they could opt for someone like Naylor or Schnell in this spot. But we'll stick with college pitching and McClanahan, who has slid a bit because of command issues, but still has a plus-plus fastball from the left side. Callis: Jackson Kowar, RHP, Florida -- Minnesota could grab the last college pitcher from the second tier before they're all gone. The Twins could be the lone team to make California shortstop Osiris Johnson a first-rounder, and Denaburg, Larnach and Naylor also are possibilities.

Toronto Blue Jays: Shane McClanahan, LHP, South Florida Shane McClanahanUSF Athletics McClanahan has the best fastball in the draft. He regularly touches triple digits and backs it with a plus changeup and average slider. The left-hander lost his freshman season to Tommy John surgery but returned to strike out 215 hitters in 142 innings over the past two seasons. His command needs work, as he's walked batters at a 5.3 BB/9 clip this spring, but there's huge upside here if everything clicks.

Quotable Head coach Billy Mohl's thoughts on the Bulls' opening game and next test at the conference tournament: "It's the first time in a long time the offense kind of struggled a bit. But you know what, we've got another game this afternoon and they'll bounce back." "We've been in the same situation. We've lost a lot of first games and came back and won the next two. It's nothing new to this club." Key Stats 7 – USF stranded seven runners after leaving the bags packed in the first and fourth innings. 4 – Coco Montes and Kyle Phillips combined to post four of USF's seven total hits.
