Note, then, that four players from your 2009 draft class skipped Lexington to head to sunny California: Brandon Wikoff, Dallas Keuchel, David Berner, and 21st-round pick Barry Butera. The highest pick yet to be assigned to a team (meaning extended Spring Training for a likely Tri-City/Greeneville destination) is 3rd-Round pick Telvin Nash.
