With the 934th pick of the 2013 MLB Draft, the Dodgers took third baseman Andrew McWilliam out of Westview High School in California. At 6’5″, there’s certainly projection here. With the 964th pick, the team took right-hander Rob Rogers of Keystone College. He was selected as a Division Three First-Team All-American. As a senior, he should sign without issue. Second baseman Tyger Pederson was taken out of University Of Pacific with the 994th pick. Yes, it’s the brother of Joc Pederson, which makes you think his parents must have had the good stuff. Follow Tyger Pederson On Twitter Here’s Pacific’s profile of him: Pederson hit .274 in three seasons with Pacific, after joining the Tigers from Redlands. He scored 60 runs in his career while driving in 44 runs, with 13 doubles. Pederson also drew 49 walks in his career, for a .349 on-base percentage. With a pair of triples and one home run, he posted 16 career extra base hits, with his long ball coming a Klein Family Field on February 24, 2013. As his senior year came to a close, Pederson reached base safely in 17 of his final 18 games, including a nine-game hitting streak. He posted 22 multi-hit games, including a career-best five-for-five against No. 13 Cal in 2011, sparking the Tigers’ win over the ranked Golden Bears. Primarily a second baseman, Pederson also appeared in left field, first base and designated hitter at times during his 142-games as a Tiger. As a senior, he should sign and join his brother in the system. With the 1024th pick, the team selected lefty Rob Cerfolio out of Yale University. Here’s Yale’s profile of him: Cerfolio is one of 16 draft selections with Connecticut ties and one of 38 selections from his home state of Alabama. In his Yale career, Cerfolio has made 36 appearances with 23 starts. He has recorded 63 career strikeouts over three seasons. His performance in 2013 was his best by far, including a career-best 2.94 ERA and a career-high 29 strikeouts. In 2013, he led Yale in ERA, starts (8) and strikeouts looking (12), and he was second on the team in opponents’ batting average (.273), strikeouts (29), and innings pitched (49.0). As a junior, he has the option of going back and increasing his stock. Also, the whole graduating from Yale thing. Catcher Kaleb Holbrook out of South Georgia College was made the 1054th pick of the draft. Couldn’t find much information on him, but he has a lot of eligibility left, so he has options besides the Dodgers. With the 1084th pick, the Dodgers took outfielder James Lynch from Glendale Community College. Don’t know much else, but like Holbrook, he has eligibility remaining. With the 1114th pick, the Dodgers selected right-handed pitcher Justin Dunn out of The Gunnery High School in Connecticut. An interesting pick here, since he seems to have pro potential. Follow Justin Dunn On Twitter Perfect Game profiled him here: Justin Dunn is a 2013 RHP/IF with a 6-1 160 lb. frame from Freeport, NY who attends Gunnery. Dunn has an athletic body, over the top arm slot, excellent arm speed, good arm strength, seen him up to 90 at previous tournaments, has hard downer curveball which could become a plus pitch, mixed in low 70′s change up, has an aggressive approach, line drive swing plane, fast twitched swing, only hit right handed in cage, but took cuts left handed in cage, showed a raw swing with some upside with bat speed, defensively, good arm strength, ball carries out of hand, interesting follow on mound, signed with Boston College, named to top prospect list, good student. Since the Dodgers went conservative in the bonus rounds, I’d like to see them extend themselves and try to buyout a draftee like this. A solid Boston College commit at the moment. Shortstop Dillon Moyer (sound familiar?) was taken out of UC San Diego with the 1144th pick. Bloodlines? You bet (Jamie Moyer). His school profiled him: Taken with the 1144th overall pick, Moyer was one of just three Tritons to start all 50 games during the 2013 season, his first in La Jolla after spending his first two years at UC Irvine. He was tied for first on the team with 16 doubles, second in stolen bases (15), and third in runs (33), hits (57) and RBI (28). Moyer hit .298 and earned All-California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) honorable mention. Moyer is the son of Jamie Moyer, who pitched for over 25 years in MLB for eight different clubs and was chosen to the 2003 MLB All-Star Game. He becomes the first Triton drafted since right-handed pitchers Tim Shibuya (Twins, Round 23, 718) and Guido Knudson (Tigers, Round 28, 857) in 2011. Moyer is the first UCSD position player tabbed in over a decade, since catcher/third baseman Ryan Larson (Astros, Round 38, 1151) in 2002. Moyer is a junior. No rush to sign since he can probably play until he’s 80. Catcher Jake Sidwell was the 1174th pick out of Olympia High School in Florida. His dad, Rob Sidwell, is a scout with the Dodgers. Follow Jake Sidwell On Twitter To close out the team’s draft, the Dodgers took center fielder Matt Haggerty out of Seton Catholic High School in Arizona with the 1204th pick. He’s a commit to Grand Canyon University.
