All-Time MLB Draft: Round 22 (Picks 1051-1100)

February 15, 2012

At least a year ago, maybe longer, I had an idea: wouldn’t it be cool to go through every draft pick in major league history, pick the best player for each one, and create sort of an Ultimate Draft? (NFL.com did something like this a couple years ago, so maybe that’s where I got the idea from, but they only did the first round. I can’t find anyplace that’s done it for baseball.) There are over 1,200 players listed here, so I broke this up into rounds of fifty picks each. We’ll run one round each day. Also, note that there are some differences in the way the posts are labeled and the actual numbers of the picks. This is because I left out picks for which there were either no eligible major leaguers (noted below) or no major leaguers at all. All-Time Draft: Picks 1051-1100 Total WAR: 146.6 (2.9 per player) High WAR: Tim Lincecum (22.5) Low WAR: Nick Stavinoha (-1.8) Hall of Famers: None Most Valuable Players: None Cy Youngs: Tim Lincecum 2 (2008-09) Rookies of the Year: None 1173 – Marcus Gwyn, RHP, Cleveland Indians (1996) 1175 – Travis Baptist, LHP, Toronto Blue Jays (1990) 1176 – Kameron Loe, RHP, Philadelphia Phillies (1999) 1177 – Jacob Cruz, OF, California Angels (1991) 1178 – Joe Horgan, LHP, New York Yankees (1995) 1180 – Bryan LaHair, OF, Seattle Mariners (2002) 1181 – Nick Stavinoha, OF, Houston Astros (2002) 1182 – Brandon Kintzler, RHP, San Diego Padres (2004) 1187 – Pete Orr, SS, Texas Rangers (1997) 1188 – Matt Pagnozzi, C, Chicago Cubs (2001) 1189 – Hunter Pence, OF, Milwaukee Brewers (2002) 1190 – Robert Fick, C, Detroit Tigers (1995) 1191 – Matt Garza, RHP, Colorado Rockies (2002) 1193 – Julio Lugo, SS, Houston Astros (1994) 1194 – Pat Burrell, 3B, Boston Red Sox (1995) 1197 – Sean Spencer, LHP, Seattle Mariners (1996) 1199 – Danny Patterson, RHP, Texas Rangers (1989) 1200 – Brandon Morrow, RHP, Anaheim Angels (2003) 1207 – Nook Logan, SS, New York Yankees (1998) 1212 – Chan Perry, 1B, Cleveland Indians (1994) 1215 – Jermaine Clark, SS, Los Angeles Dodgers (1994) 1217 – Wes Whisler, LHP, Chicago Cubs (2001) 1218 – Justin Knoedler***, C, St. Louis Cardinals (1998) 1219 – Mike Vento, OF, New York Yankees (1997) 1220 – Todd Coffey, RHP, Cincinnati Reds (1998) 1225 – Bobby Hughes, C, Detroit Tigers (1991) 1226 – Jeff Conine, 3B, Kansas City Royals (1987) 1227 – Josh Pearce, RHP, Anaheim Angels (1997) 1230 – Bry Nelson, SS, Houston Astros (1993) 1231 – Chris Sampson, SS, Kansas City Royals (1997) 1234 – Jeff Duncan, OF, Chicago Cubs (1997) 1236 – Geoff Geary, RHP, Milwaukee Brewers (1997) 1237 – Dax Jones***, OF, Toronto Blue Jays (1988) 1241 – Kyle Blanks***, 1B, San Diego Padres (2004) 1246 – Chris Spurling, RHP, New York Yankees (1997) 1247 – Bret Barberie, INF, Kansas City Royals (1987) 1249 – Erik Plantenberg, LHP, Kansas City Royals (1987) 1251 – Alan Benes, RHP, San Diego Padres (1990) 1252 – Alex Pelaez, 3B, San Diego Padres (1998) 1253 – Greg Jones, C, California Angels (1996) 1258 – Tom Marsh, RHP, Toronto Blue Jays (1987) 1259 – John Axford***, RHP, Cincinnati Reds (2005) 1261 – Tim Lincecum, RHP, Cleveland Indians (2005) 1262 – Erik Sabel, RHP, Arizona Diamondbacks (1996) 1268 – Steve Bourgeois, RHP, Cleveland Indians (1991) 1269 – Rick Helling, RHP, New York Mets (1990) 1271 – Chris Schwinden, RHP, Detroit Tigers (2004) 1273 – Jason Vargas, LHP, Minnesota Twins (2001) 1274 – Mike Cervenak, 3B, Oakland Athletics (1998) 1275 – Brad Brach, RHP, San Diego Padres (2008) Player Listed Was Second-Highest; First Highest Already Appeared (Denoted By Triple Asterisk) 1218 – John Nelson 1237 – Sean White 1241 – Scott Feldman 1259 – Casey Blake Already Appeared, No Other Major Leaguers 1185 – Albie Lopez 1192 – Jeremy Horst 1204 – Brandon Kintzler 1208 – Jonathan Papelbon 1235 – Steve Edlefsen 1254 – Adam LaRoche 1260 – Nyjer Morgan 1263 – Brandon Larson 1264 – Robert Fick 1266 – Fernando Vina 1272 – Tony Cruz
