Top Remaining MLB Draft Prospects, Second Day MLB Draft 2011 Prospects

The first day of the 2011 MLB First-Year Player Draft is in the books, but that doesn't mean that there aren't some excellent prospects available to be drafted still. Unlike the NFL Draft, the MLB Draft often see top talent slip thanks to high bonus demands from draftees.

The Texas Rangers drafted Kevin Matthews and Zach Cone last night with the 33rd and 37th overall picks respectively. Texas drafted the pair despite having much higher grade talent left on the board.

11 of Baseball America's top 50 draft prospects are still on the board as we head into day two of the MLB draft.

No. 15. Josh Bell, of
No. 16. Daniel Norris, lhp
No. 28. Austin Hedges, c
No. 30 Andrew Susac, c
No. 31 Dillon Howard, rhp
No. 32 Matt Purke, lhp
No. 39 Jorge Lopez, rhp
No. 41 Josh Osich, lhp
No. 42 Alex Dickerson, of
No. 46 Dillon Maples, rhp
No. 50 Tony Zych, rhp

Bell, of course, is a local product and has been linked to the Texas Rangers. Jon Daniels and company must have decided against drafting Bell because of the steep price tag attached to him, and he's been adamant about attending the University of Texas, where he has a commitment to play.
