COMMENT: Muscular, compact body with strong arms and legs, similar to Milwaukee's Fernando Vina. Hits from crouch and puts ball in play. Average range with quick first step. Soft hands snag everything he gets touches. Makes plays all over field. Gives 100 percent effort all the time.

Switch-hitter with natural righty strength in slight uppercut swing. Average bat speed, power to pull. High-stride runner with average speed for size. Aggressive on bases. Arm carries.

COMMENT: Loose, athletic body, well-proportioned. Built similar to Atlanta's Jason Marquis. Throws both two- and four-seam fastballs. Flashes 90 mph when needed, mostly 88-89. Enough movement on two-seamer to miss bats. Small slurvy-slider effective when thrown for strike. Feel for circle change. Arm strength and pitchability. Challenges hitters with aggressive approach and fringy stuff. Great makeup. Also plays shortstop and swings bat.

COMMENT: Medium-large frame, well-proportioned body, similar to Paul Byrd. Fair mechanics out of three-quarter delivery. Fastball velocity average a times with sink. Curveball rotation occasionally tight. Effective circle change shows downward movement. Unusual shoulder motion in release presents screwball action. Good competitor, gets outs.

COMMENT: Tall, thick, strong body, similar to Trevor Hoffman. No windup, overhand delivery. Straight fastball, average velocity, occasionally above average. Loose strong arm. Curve has tight, three-quarter break. Change sinks away from lefties off deceptive fastball arm speed. Good athlete, fields position well. Quick feet on pickoff. Converted infielder is thrower figuring out how to pitch.
