Angels scouts rack up miles

By Mark Saxon

The Angels continued to focus on college talent in Day 3 of the draft. Of their 25 picks, all but two were from four or two-year colleges.

The most surprising aspect of the Angels' draft is that they have yet to take a player from California. One name that stands out: pitcher Kenneth Hatcher from Dallas Baptist. He's the nephew of recently fired Angels hitting coach Mickey Hatcher.

Here are the team's picks from Wednesday:

2B Cody Eaves, Pasadena Memorial High (Texas)
RHP Yency Almonte, Columbus High (Miami, Fla.)
3B Ryan Dalton, Texas-San Antonio
RHP Aaron Newcomb, Delta State
OF Quintin Davis, McLenna CC (Texas)
RHP Patrick Lowery, Columbia
C Anthony Bemboon, Creighton
3B Mike Snyder, Florida Southern
RHP Garrett Bush Flagler
CF Kyle Johnson, Washington State
LHP Tyler Deloach, UNC-Wilmington
1B Wade Hinkle, Kansas State
OF Joel Capote, St. Thomas
SS Caleb Bushyhead, Oklahoma State
LHP Nicholas Dellatorre St. John’s River JC (Florida)
SS Jeff Kemp, Radford
RHP Robert Powell, Stetson
C Sam Mulroy, Princeton
C Zachary Livingston, Arizona Christian
C Pedro Pizarro, Byrd High (La.)
RHP Kenneth Hatcher, Dallas Baptist
RHP Matt Collins, Central Florida
RHP Jake Boyd, Stetson
C Justin Morhard, Gilbert School (Conn.)
OF Blaka Amaral (Hawaii Pacific)
