Starting at 12:00 the Reds will begin drafting for rounds 4 through 30. I will be updating this post from rounds 4 until about round 10, then make a new thread with the next group of guys and so on.
At this point there are still some real interesting names out there and don’t forget that it was on day 2 of last year that we got guys like Matt Fairel and JC Sulbaran way down in the draft. There are some real talents to be had if you are willing to spend a little bit of money.
Here are the draft picks. For more information on them all, click the ‘more’ button.

Scouting Report from BaseballDraftReport.com
Tucker Barnhart (Indiana) – slight of frame (5-10ish, 170), but a very valuable defensive player with a knack for squaring up balls; routinely shows off well above-average footwork behind plate; known to chart pitches and do advance scouting on future opponents on his high school team’s off days; another player who may be best served heading off to the Asher Roth approved world of college, he’s a Georgia Tech commit who could grow into a premium draft in three years; if he can’t catch full-time, I’d love to see what he could do at second base – I think he has enough athleticism to handle the switch with enough repetitions
