MPH Draft Database Part Two: Rounds 6 to 13

Round 6, Pick 213: Guillaume Leduc
Round 7, Pick 243: Lucas Duda

Lucas Duda

2005: 16 for 77, 7 runs, 4 2b, HR, 11 RBI, 9/18 BB/K, .208/.290/.298
2006: 57 for 191, 37 runs, 8 2b, 3b, 3 HR, 36 RBI, 4/6 SBs, 28/34 BB/K, .298/.391/.398

Round 8, Pick 273: Daniel McDonald

Daniel McDonald (RHP - Seton Hall University)

Here is how McDonald sees/describes himself:

He throws a 2 and 4 seamer, along with a slider and change. His 4 seamer can reach 94, and it is his primary pitch. He feels he needs to work on his slider, and get better command on all 3 pitches. Due to his small stature, he compares himself to Pedro Martinez.

2007: 2-2, 3.37 era, 26 G, 34.2 IP, 23 H, 19 BBs, 39 Ks, BAA .193
Round 9, Pick 303: Michael Olmstead

Michael Olmstead (RHP - Cypress College)

Here is how Olmstead sees/describes himself:

His fastball sits 90-93 as a reliever, and 88-92 as a starter. He also throws a slider, curveball and changeup. His changeup is in a developmental stage, while his curveball is a pitch he can throw at anytime. He feels his best secondary pitch varies nightly, between his curve and slider. Olmstead's pitching coach used to be Trevor Hoffman's pitching coach, so Olmstead uses the same grip on his changeup as Hoffman. He would most compare himself, however, to John Lackey.

2007: 9-4, 4.19 era, 24 G, 7 GS, 73 IP, 80 H, 24 BBs, 63 Ks, BAA .280
Round 10, Pick 333: Brandon Richey

Brandon Richey (SS - Northwestern State University)

2007: .365/.426/.550, 73 for 200, 31 runs, 10 2b, 3 3b, 7 HR, 32 RBI, 19/33 BB/K, 18/23 SBs
Round 11, Pick 363: Matthew Bouchard

Matthew Bouchard (SS - Georgetown University)

2007: .329/.378/.475, 72 for 219, 33 runs, 12 2b, 3b, 6 HR, 41 RBI, 19/28 BB/K, 16/22 SBs
Round 12, Pick 393: William Morgan

William Morgan (RHP - Lewis & Clark State College)

Morgan features a low 90s fastball, a good slider, and a developing changeup. He calls his slider his best pitch, followed by his fastball, then his change.

2007: 5-1, 1.46 era, 23 G, GS, 67.2 IP, 41 H, 17 BBs, 78 Ks, BAA .177
Round 13, Pick 423: Jordan Abruzzo

Jordan Abruzzo (C - University of San Diego)

2007: .332/.396/.492, 85 for 256, 56 runs, 15 2b, 3b, 8 HR, 59 RBI, 23/23 BB/K, 3/4 SBs
