With the 111th pick of the 3rd Round of the 2012 Draft, the Washington Nationals selected 6'5'', 215 lb, Atwater, California-born LHP Brett Mooneyham out of Stanford. The Nationals selected the left-hander with the 1,147th pick in the 38th Round of last year's draft but failed to sign Mooneyham. In the 2012 season the left-hander was (7-5) with a 4.26 ERA, 37 walks and 90 K's in 14 games and 82.1 IP for the Cardinal baseball team. MLB.com's Jonathan Mayo wrote in his draft preview that Mooneyham was somewhat under the radar pitching in the same staff as potential no.1 overall pick Mark Appel (who ended up going 8th overall to the Pirates). A "flexor tendon" issue in Mooneyham's finger cost the left-hander the 2011 season. MLB.com's Mr. Mayo's final analysis was that though, "Issues with command and control have plagued Mooneyham throughout his career, but his stuff is still plenty good enough to compete at the next level." Mooneyham is the Nationals' third pick this year after RHP Lucas Giolito (16th overall) and infielder Tony Renda (80th). The Nationals next pick is the 144th overall in the 4th Round.
