After following a pretty recognizable pattern in rounds 2-15 of the MLB Draft Tuesday, the White Sox were all over the field in rounds 16-40 on Wednesday.
First-round picks: Courtney Hawkins, Keon Barnum Rounds 2-15 picks
Here's a rundown of who the Sox selected today:
Round 16: Abe Ruiz, 1B, Arizona State University
The powerful senior belted 13 home runs with a .965 OPS for ASU this season and took an interesting route to get there -- after a successful freshman campaign in Tempe, Ruiz left the team, then had surgery to repair a torn labrum, preventing him from seeing much action in 2011.
Round 17: Sammy Ayala, C, La Jolla County Day High School (Calif.)
Judging by this Baseball America report from February, Ayala is a decent prospect, but that he fell all the way to round 17 means he's probably headed off to college unless the Sox can pinch some pennies somewhere to fit him in under their bonus allotment.
Round 18: Thomas McCarthy, 3B, University of Kentucky
In his first year at Kentucky, McCarthy posted a 1.017 OPS, but fell off to .856 in 2012. He played two years in JuCo before heading to Lexington, and like Ruiz, that he's a senior hurt his draft standing.
Round 19: Alex Williams, 1B, Louisiana Tech University
Williams connected for 12 home runs with a .968 OPS in his senior year at LaTech. He had an up-and-down college career, seeing his OPS fluctuate from .784 to .971 to .723 to .968.
Round 20: Zachary Voight, SS, New Mexico State University
Voight split his college career between Navarro College and NMSU and hit .301.388.485 with eight home runs in his senior year in New Mexico.
Round 21: Adam Lopez, RHP, Virginia Military Institute
In four years at VMI, Lopez only threw 119 13 innings thanks in large part to undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2011. But he did strike out 146 in those innings.
Round 22: Cory McGinnis, RHP, Auburn University at Montgomery
Bounced between Winthrop, South Alabama and Auburn at Montgomery during his college career, and per his bio, his uncle is Home Improvement star Tim Allen.
Round 23: Kale Kiser, OF, University of Nebraska
Finished his career playing under Darin Erstad in Lincoln strong, posting an .865 OPS with six home runs in his senior season for the Huskers. He posted an OBP above .415 in three of his four years with Nebraska and never had fewer than eight more walks than strikeouts after his freshman year.
Round 24: Eric Grabe, 2B, University of Tampa
Grabe won an area gold glove as a junior and hit .320.382.480 in his senior season.
Round 25: Storm Throne, RHP, Morningside College (Iowa)
Has an outstanding name and, judging by his twitter profile photo, is a White Sox fan. The Omaha native, who stands at 6-foot-7, posted a 4.58 ERA with 61 strikeouts and 22 walks in his junior season.
Round 26: Zachary Toney, LHP, Austin Peay State University
Started in 14 of his 17 appearances with a 3.10 ERA, 45 walks and 86 strikeouts. Another senior.
Round 27: Zachary Fisher, C, New Mexico State University
Was a 49th-round pick of Kansas City in 2009, compiled a 1.028 OPS in three years at NMSU with 22 home runs.
Round 28: James Hudelson, RHP, Delta State University (Miss.)
Began his college career at Jefferson CC -- Mark Buehrle's alma mater -- before transferring to Mizzou and then to Delta State, where he struck out 26 in 20 13 innings of relief work.
Round 29: Jason Coats, OF, TCU
An ACL injury ended his season in late May, so he may not see action in the Sox system until 2013. In four years at TCU, he compiled a .940 OPS with 33 home runs. He was a 12th-round pick of Baltimore following his junior year of 2011.
Round 30: Jake Brown, SS, Kansas State University
Never posted an OPS above .700 in the Little Apple, although he was named to the Brooks Wallace Award watch list, which is given to the top collegiate shortstop every year, with fielding ability a large component of compiling the list.
Round 31: William Thompson, 3B, East Carolina University
Started off strong at ECU but his offensive numbers dipped every year from his sophomore to senior seasons. Still, he compiled a .424 OBP in his collegiate career.
Round 32: Steve Nikorak, 3B, Temple University
Hit seven homers with a .909 OPS in his senior year.
Round 33: Jon Savarise, LHP, Stevenson High School (Ill.)
A local product and White Sox fan, Savarise -- then pitching for Loyola -- threw a scoreless inning during an All-Star contest at U.S. Cellular Field last year. He throws about as hard as Jamie Moyer, per Prep Baseball Report.
Round 34: Ryan Castellanos, RHP, Archbishop McCarthy High School (Fla.)
A teammate of fifth-round pick Nick Basto, he apparently has no intention of going pro right now.
Round 35: Kyle Martin, RHP, Texas A&M University
Pitched in relief for the Aggies, striking out 50 with 21 walks in 53 innings during his final year in College Station.
Round 36: Mitch Patishall, RHP, Pendleton Heights High School (Ind.)
He's committed to the University of Cincinnati, and probably will honor that. He plays both third base and pitcher.
Round 37: Thurman Hall III, OF, Western Texas College
Compiled a .432 OBP at the JuCo level while stealing 12 bases in 13 attempts.
Round 38: DeJohn Suber, SS, Morgan Park High School (Ill.)
Prep Baseball Report describes him as an outstanding fielder with very raw offensive abilities. His twitter profile indicates he's committed to John A. Logan College, where the White Sox plucked lefty Derek Thompson from in the 13th round of this year's draft.
Round 39: Mitch Glasser, 2B, Macalester College (Minn.)
An alum of The Latin School in Chicago, Glasser is apparently the first player ever drafted out of the small D-III Minnesota college.
Round 40: Sam Mason, RHP, Beverly Hills High School (Calif.)
Can't find much on him as a pitcher, but generally prep players selected this late don't turn pro.
