MLB Draft 2012: Indians Start The Day With RHP Cody Penny, Add Nine Others Thus Far

The 2012 MLB Draft is moving right along, and teams around the league are adding so many new faces, they're the only ones who will remember who everyone is off-hand. Day two wrapped up with the 15th-round selections, and day three is now underway with rounds 16-40.

At the time of writing, the Indians have already added 10 new faces to the team on day three, starting with Cody Penny in round 16 out of North Carolina. Penny is a right-handed pitcher who is an interesting prospect as a bullpen arm, according to Indians Prospects Insider:

Quick take: Penny looks to be a pen arm in the minors as he has shown the stuff to be a dominant reliever at the college level. He has pitched in 48 career college cames, starting two of them, and has thrown just 41.1 innings with a 5.67 ERA (26 BB, 47 K). He has a fastball that touches the mid-90s and a good spike curve, so if the Indians can develop his delivery and command he has some interesting stuff as a pen arm.

They also have good things to say about some of the other picks - you can find the list here. They're particularly complimentary of outfielder Andrew Calica, who was drafted in the 17th round. At any rate, here's a full list of players taken thus far on day three for the Indians:

Round 16, Cody Penny, RHP, North Carolina, NC
Round 17, Andrew Calica, CF, Eastlake HS, CA
Round 18, Louis Head, RHP, Texas St. U
Round 19, Colyn O'Connell, RHP, Dunedin HS, FL
Round 20, Nicholas Pasquale, RHP, Diablo Valley Col, CA
Round 21, Joe Sever, 2B, Pepperdine U, CA
Round 22, James Stokes, RHP, Elon University, NC
Round 23, Richard Stock, C, Nebraska, NE
Round 24, Thomas White, RHP, South Georgia Col, GA
Round 25, Cameron Cox, RHP, Weatherford Col, TX
