When we get down to draft pick #31, it feels like we're scrapping the bottom of the barrel. But there were 50 rounds to the 2004 draft. That means there were 1,457 players picked after the first round. I'm going to follow up this post with the bottom ten players who actually played in the majors.
2009 Topps Heritage #587 J. P. Howell
Zach Jackson. Pick #32 by the Blue Jays. Zach was a starting pitcher who compiled a 4-5 record with the Brewers and Indians between 2006 and 2009. He's currently in AAA with the Nationals. I don't own a single card of his.
2004 Just Rookies #57 Justin Orenduff
Tyler Lumsden. Pick #34 by the White Sox. Another pitcher who never made it out of the minors. There are no Lumsden cards in my collection.
2004 Bowman Draft Picks #90 Matt Fox
2007 Topps Turkey Red #85 Danny Putnam
Jon Poterson. Pick #37 by the Yankees. Another guy who never made it out of the minors and for which I have no cards.
