HS
COMMENT: Same type body as young Dale Murphy. Quiet hitting mechanics, often lacks trigger but takes a rip. Better than average athlete with above-average baseball tools. Attacks at plate. Serious bat speed. Covers plate, like to turn and can pull outer half, but can also drive opposite way. Exciting, plays wide open. All-American in football.

COMMENT: Long, narrow frame. Thin, loose limbs, like Tim Hudson. Good arm speed. Sneaky, riding fastball (89-91), hits 92, some late tail and sink. Holds velocity from stretch. Playable, slow downward curve. Fringe slider. Deceptive, late-diving straight change is out pitch. Bottom falls out of splitter.

COMMENT: Body similar to Jorge Fabregas. Left-handed hitting catcher with some pop. Flashes bat speed and will drive it to gaps. Occasionally hammers it. Advanced defensively. Quick, soft hands. Lets ball come to him and absorbs it. Quick release with good carry. Polished player.

COMMENT: Medium, well-proportioned frame. Lanky build. Mostly compact three-quarter delivery, finishes to side with spin. Father is former Major Leaguer Bryan Harvey. Clean, live arm action with limited effort. Near-plus life on fastball. Tailing, hard, low sink with occasional run. Velocity jumps each of past three years. Curve has some strikeout zone feel. Change will be OK third pitch. Goes by "Kris."

COMMENT: Same type body as Kerry Wood. Gets inside fastball at times. Arm drops and gets under stuff. Quick, strong arm. Does it easy when delivery in sync. Heavy fastball sinks and runs. Gets ground balls. Slurvy curveball is tight and down. Good arm speed on change. Good wrist with all. Some feel for forkball. Still growing into body.
