1Price, DavidVanderbilt ULHPL/L6'06"2151985-08-26JR400K
Comments: The presumed No. 1 pick from the start of the year, the big left-hander has done nothing to diminish his standing in that position. As Vanderbilt's Friday night starter, he has dominated throughout the season with a plus fastball, an outstanding slider and an above-average changeup. His makeup, both on and off the field, is just as impressive as his stuff.
Enhanced Scouting Report
2Moustakas, MichaelChatsworth HSSSL/R6'00"1951988-09-11HS400K
Comments: At the start of the year, it may have been Matt Dominguez who was getting the attention at Chatsworth High. By the end of the season, Moustakas may have been the prime attraction. He basically re-wrote the California high school record books for career and single-season home runs. The only question is where he'll play defensively. A shortstop now because of Dominguez at third, some see Moustakas as a third baseman or perhaps even as a catcher.
Enhanced Scouting Report
3Vitters, JoshuaCypress HS3BR/R6'03"2001989-08-27HS400K
Comments: Vitters entered the season as the top high school hitter on most draft boards and he did nothing all season to upset that standing, even though he dealt with a bout of pneumonia during the season. With an uncanny ability to make hard, consistent contact, Vitters has the ability to hit for average and power at the next level. He makes terrific adjustments at the plate and rarely gets cheated. His defensive game isn't as strong as his bat, but he should be just fine at third base.
Enhanced Scouting Report
4Moskos, DanielClemson ULHPR/L6'01"2101986-04-28JR400K
Comments: Moskos entered the season as one of the, if not the top, college reliever in the draft class, helped by the fact he throws from the left side. When Clemson made him their Friday starter out of need, it was a win-win, with scouts able to see if his three-pitch repertoire would hold up over more innings considering he uses a maximum effort delivery. He was pitching well and deep into games late in the year, but the jury was still out whether teams believed he could start long-term. Even so, he was expected to go in the top half of the first round.
Enhanced Scouting Report
5Wieters, MatthewGeorgia TechCS/R6'04"2251986-05-21JR400K
Comments: Wherever he's been, Wieters has hit. That continued to be the case in his junior season, though he was a little more inconsistent than he had been in the past. The big, switch-hitting catcher has power from both sides and those who like him think he'll hit plenty at the next level. He's got very good arm strength behind the plate - he was the team's closer in the past as well - and most people think that while big for the position, he should be able to stay there. For a player as highly thought of as Wieters is by some, though, it's interesting to note that several scouts did not evaluate him as positively during the 2007 season.
Enhanced Scouting Report
6Detwiler, RossMissouri St ULHPR/L6'05"1851986-03-06JR400K
Comments: Despite the fact his last outing of the year was cut short by a split finger nail, Detwiler could very well be the No. 2 college lefty in the draft class behind presumptive No. 1 overall pick David Price. He showed the ability to command the ball better this year than in the past to go along with raw stuff better than the average pitchability southpaw. There is some concern about his narrow frame and how it will hold up, but that won't keep him from being a top 10 pick.
Enhanced Scouting Report
7LaPorta, MatthewU FloridaLFR/R6'02"2121985-01-08SR400K
Comments: LaPorta erased a forgettable injury-riddled junior season with a monster senior campaign. With nothing to lose and healthy, he appears to be relaxed and enjoying the game again. It seems that his decision not to sign with the Red Sox after being drafted in the 14th round a year ago will be a good one for him.
Enhanced Scouting Report
8Weathers, CaseyVanderbilt URHPR/R6'01"2051985-06-10SR400K
Comments: Still relatively new to pitching, Weathers opted to return to Vanderbilt for his senior year. It seems like it was the right decision as the right-hander is likely the top college closer on draft boards. He's got two power offerings in a plus fastball and slider and also has a changeup he can mix in from time-to-time. He has the stuff to close at the next level. That, combined with being a senior sign, should see him go very early on draft day.
Enhanced Scouting Report
9Parker, JarrodNorwell HSRHPR/R6'01"1801988-11-24HS400K
Comments: Parker has a good combination of skills, a big fastball, two potentially good secondary pitches, clean mechanics, outstanding command and mound presence. He has the chance to be a frontline starter in the future.
Enhanced Scouting Report
10Bumgarner, MadisonSouth Caldwell HSLHPR/L6'04"2151989-08-01HS400K
Comments: Bumgarner certainly looks the part, with the body type and fastball of a professional pitcher. Lefties from the high school ranks with plus velocity like that don't come around very often. Any team who takes him will have to keep him from changing his arm angle on his breaking stuff, but chances are there will be many teams willing to give that a shot.
Enhanced Scouting Report
11Aumont, PhillippeEcole Du VersantRHPL/R6'07"2201989-01-07HS400K
Comments: With a plus fastball, a slider that should become an above-average offering over time, a feel for a changeup and his size, Aumont understandably drew a lot of interest. He may have started behind prep pitchers from Florida and Texas because of inexperience, but he caught up and should be one of the top high school pitchers selected on draft day.
Enhanced Scouting Report
12Dominguez, MatthewChatsworth HS3BR/R6'02" 1989-08-28HS400K
Comments: While teammate Mike Moustakas has been getting more buzz lately because of his torrid home run pace, Dominguez' skills should not be overlooked. He, too, can hit for power and should hit for average as well. At the same time, he's considered to be one of the better defensive third baseman to come out of a draft in a long time. The whole package should make him a first round pick.
Enhanced Scouting Report
13Mills, BeauLewis & Clark St Col1BL/R6'03"2201986-08-15JR400K
Comments: Mills spent his first two years of college ball at Fresno State, but transferred after academic problems forced him off the team late last year. Still, he hit 14 homers and hit .355 in 2006 and was even better with Lewis-Clark State this year. In a class short on impact college bats, Mills has only helped his draft status.
Enhanced Scouting Report
14Heyward, JasonHenry County HSOFL/L6'04"2201989-08-09HS400K
Comments: Heyward is one of the most intriguing high school bats in the draft class. He's got legitimate power potential from the left side, always a hot commodity, but isn't an all-or-nothing hitter. He's got a good approach at the plate and has the chance to hit for average and power. If the cards fall right, he could be a future cleanup hitter.
Enhanced Scouting Report
15Mesoraco, DevinPunxsutawney Area HSCR/R6'01" 1988-06-19HS400K
Comments: Mesoraco has answered any questions about his arm following Tommy John surgery a year ago and is on the rise among catching prospects. He's a complete catching package, with hitting ability, power, good hands, a plus arm and outstanding leadership ability.
Enhanced Scouting Report
16Ahrens, KevinMemorial HSSSS/R6'01"1901989-04-26HS400K
Comments: Add another fine prep infielder to the list. There's a lot of upside in Ahrens' offense and while he'll likely end up at third base, he could possibly start as a shortstop because of his hands and arm and play there until he proves he can't stay at the position.
Enhanced Scouting Report
17Beavan, BlakeIrving HSRHPR/R6'06"2001989-01-17HS400K
Comments: Beavan is a very confident young man who knows all eyes are on him. He didn't do anything to disappoint in his senior season. He was virtually unhittable all year with a plus fastball and slider coming from a big, athletic frame. He beat Cuba in Cuba for team USA last summer, so clearly he has no problem with pressure situations. His size and his arm strength alone would be enough, but throw in some decent command and excellent stuff and he won't likely make it past the first 20 picks of the first round.
Enhanced Scouting Report
18Kozma, PeterOwasso HSSSR/R6'00"1701988-04-11HS400K
Comments: Kozma is a very savvy offensive middle infielder whose bat is his best, but not only, tool. He runs well and handles his position capably. A hard worker, he plays the game the right way and is very fundamentally sound. There's no flash with Kozma, what you see is what you get.
Enhanced Scouting Report
19Savery, JosephRice ULHPL/L6'03"2151985-11-04JR400K
Comments: Savery has spent the year coming back from offseason shoulder surgery all while being Rice's regular first baseman. A good outing in Regional play certainly didn't hurt the left-hander who was a sure-fire first-round before the injury, but some teams will likely stay away because of the shoulder issue and the fact his stuff hasn't consistently come all the way back. That being said, he could end up being a steal for a team willing to take a chance after the first round.
Enhanced Scouting Report
20Withrow, ChristopherMidland Christian HSRHPR/R6'03"1951989-04-01HS400K
Comments: With athleticism, very clean mechanics and three pitches that have a chance to be above-average, Withrow is very intriguing. Throw in the fact that his father pitched at the University of Texas and in the White Sox organization and the bloodlines are there as well.
Enhanced Scouting Report
21Arencibia, JonathanU TennesseeCR/R6'01"2101986-01-05JR400K
Comments: Heading into the year, the Tennessee backstop was on the short list of top college catchers in the draft class. A nagging back injury has really hampered his production and given scouts some cause for concern. Still, he's got some track record and has performed very well for Team USA in the past. He's no longer in the first-round mix, but still should go in the first few rounds.
Enhanced Scouting Report
22Alderson, TimothyHorizon HSRHPR/R6'06"2171988-11-03HS400K
Comments: With a unique delivery pitching out of the stretch and unorthodox arm action, some teams may be wary. But Alderson has the chance to have three above-average pitches with outstanding command in a big, athletic package.
Enhanced Scouting Report
23Schmidt, NicholasU Arkansas FayettevilleLHPS/L6'05"2201985-10-10JR400K
Comments: Few players saw their stock rise in the weeks approaching the draft as much as Schmidt did. The college lefty has a real idea of how to pitch with an average fastball to go along with a breaking ball and outstanding changeup. He seemed to get better and better late in the year and had outstanding outings in the conference tournament and Regional play. Peaking at the right time, Schmidt could hear his name called in the top half of the first round.
Enhanced Scouting Report
24Main, MichaelDeland HSRHPR/R6'02"1701988-12-14HS400K
Comments: Main is a tremendous athlete who some teams would consider as a leadoff-type outfield prospect. But most won't look past his right arm, which delivers fastballs consistently in the mid-to-upper 90s. He's commanded the pitch well this year to go along with a good breaking ball and changeup. He's not that big, which might scare some teams off, but those not afraid to take an "undersized" right-hander will not shy away.
Enhanced Scouting Report
25Poreda, AaronU San FranciscoLHPL/L6'06"2401986-10-01JR400K
Comments: Poreda is one of those pitchers who is new to being good. Players who come out of nowhere like he has (with the jump in velocity, especially) have to get used to being dominant. Once he grows accustomed to that, his poise should improve by leaps and bounds. The plus fastball and the ability to command it, though, especially from the left side, should ensure Poreda hears his name called early on draft day.
Enhanced Scouting Report
26Simmons, DonaldUC RiversideRHPR/R6'03"2051986-09-29JR400K
Comments: When Simmons is on, he's the quintessential command right-hander, an efficient starter who fills the strike zone. When he has a breaking ball working, he's extremely effective. If he can't improve those offerings, though, he'll get too much of the strike zone and won't miss a whole lot of bats.
Enhanced Scouting Report
27Porcello, FrederickSeton Hall Prep SchoolRHPR/R6'05"1951988-12-27HS400K
Comments: There are several interesting arms in the Northeast this year and Porcello belongs at the top of that list. With an oustanding fastball and the possibility of three other above-average to average offerings, he could very well find himself one of the top high school pitchers taken in June.
Enhanced Scouting Report
28Revere, BenLexington Catholic HSCFL/R5'09"1651988-05-03HS400K
Comments: If you're looking for a base-stealer, a guy who could develop into a leadoff man, Revere might be worth a look. He's got tremendous speed and knows how to run the bases. He's got the skills to be an above-average defensive outfielder as well. Where he's lacking is his bat. He doesn't use his speed to its greatest advantage in terms of his hitting approach and he'll need some serious re-tooling to maximize his potential. Still, this kind of speed doesn't grow on trees and a team that feels they can teach him the other skills -- he does have outstanding makeup -- will take a chance.
Enhanced Scouting Report
29Fairley, WendellGeorge County HSCFL/R6'02"1901988-03-17HS400K
30Brackman, AndrewNorth Carolina St URHPR/R6'11" 1985-12-04JR400K
Comments: The concern with Brackman heading into his first full season as a baseball player only was how durable he would be. The former basketball standout had never spent an entire college season as a starting pitcher and he ended up being shut down with a tired arm late in the year. Still, the pure stuff, including a 97-mph fastball when he's 100 percent, intrigues many scouts and despite the inconsistent year, he's still in the first-round fray as more of a college project than an advanced arm.
Enhanced Scouting Report
31Smoker, JoshuaCalhoun HSLHPL/L6'02"1951988-11-26HS400K
Comments: Smoker is another in what appears to be a deep high school lefty crop in this year's draft class. With an average fastball, a consistent slider and an aggressive mentality on the mound, Smoker should be among the top southpaws taken and looks like he could carry a lot of innings in the future.
Enhanced Scouting Report
32Noonan, NicholasFrancis Parker HSSSL/R6'00"1801989-05-04HS400K
Comments: Regardless of whether Noonan can stay at short or has to move to second because of his arm, his bat will definitely play at the next level. With good instincts and approach, he's got the chance to be an intriguing table-setter come draft time.
Enhanced Scouting Report
33Gilmore, JonathanIowa City HS3BR/R6'03" 1988-08-23HS400K
Comments: Gilmore improved at the plate tremendously in his senior season. The infielder has good raw power and showed a better overall approach in his offensive game. His defense isn't as sharp, but he will be drafted because of his bat potential.
Enhanced Scouting Report
34Frazier, ToddRutgers U New BrunswickSSR/R6'03"2151986-02-12JR400K
Comments: Frazier was drafted three years ago, but he honored his commitment to Rutgers, following in his brothers' footsteps. He's had a very productive year at the plate, showing power and run production ability even though Rutgers has hit him out of the leadoff spot. He'll change his place in the order as a pro just like he'll likely change his spot defensively, from shortstop to either third or a corner outfield position. Considering the dearth of college bats in this class, it's hard to imagine he'll last long on draft day.
Enhanced Scouting Report
35Borbon, JulioU TennesseeCFL/L6'01"1801986-02-20JR400K
Comments: After missing the first chunk of the season with a fractured ankle, Borbon returned on March 20. The key for him was to show that his best tool, his speed, had returned, and he was beginning to do just that, though the extra-base pop scouts saw last year and over the summer wasn't there consistently. Pure center fielders with leadoff skills are not numerous in this draft, so Borbon still should garner plenty of early-round consideration.
Enhanced Scouting Report
36Mortensen, ClaytonGonzaga URHPR/R6'04"1801985-04-10SR400K
Comments: While there are often college seniors who make very good pros, it's rare for there to be one like Mortensen, a legitimate "prospect" on the rise in his senior season. He's got three usable pitches and a body frame that appears able to handle added strength, which could make his fastball even better. He should be a very intriguing senior sign this summer.
Enhanced Scouting Report
37D'Arnaud, TravisLakewood HSCR/R6'02"1951989-02-10HS400K
Comments: Teams are always looking for catching and d'Arnaud was moving up the charts some in his senior season. His defensive skills may be among the best in the draft class. Where he goes in the draft may depend on how much people think he'll hit. If he goes high enough, he'll turn down his commitment to Pepperdine, where his brother plays.
Enhanced Scouting Report
38Cecil, BrettU Maryland College ParkLHPR/L6'03"2201986-07-02JR400K
Comments: Cecil's slider alone will get him to the big leagues. If he can add a changeup to throw to righties, he could close. At the very least, he could become a very good left-handed setup man in a big-league bullpen. He got a start at the end of Maryland's season and there are those who think he has the stuff to be in a rotation in the future.
Enhanced Scouting Report
39Adkins, JamesU TennesseeLHPL/L6'05"1951985-11-26JR400K
Comments: Adkins put himself on the map with a very strong season debut, but had mixed results as the season wore on. He picked it up by carrying a no-hitter into the eighth inning of his SEC Tournament start. He pitches backwards, off of his plus breaking stuff rather than off of his fastball, something that he'll probably learn to reverse as a pro. Whether he's a starter in the future remains to be seen, but with his slider, he at the very least has a future as a lefty specialist out of the bullpen.
Enhanced Scouting Report
40Kulbacki, KellenJames Madison ULFL/L5'11"1851985-11-21JR400K
Comments: Kulbacki had a huge sophomore season when he hit .464 with 24 home runs. He's followed it up with an outstanding junior season, good timing for a year with a weak college hitting class. While not a bad defender, it's definitely his bat that will carry him, and it should carry him quite far.
Enhanced Scouting Report
41Doolittle, SeanU Virginia1BL/L6'03"1901986-09-26JR400K
Comments: Doolittle has excellent hitting skills and should hit well for average as a pro. An athletic first baseman with good hands, his draft status may depend on how much power scouts think he will hit for at the next level. He's a safe, solid draft pick who should have a big-league future. He was a two-way player at Virginia, but most scouts see him as a hitter and not a pitcher.
Enhanced Scouting Report
42Kunz, EdwardOregon St URHPR/R6'05"2501986-04-08JR400K
Comments: Kunz's package of stuff is well-suited to the back of a bullpen, but the lack of the third pitch may keep him from closing as a pro. His future may be as a setup man who can pound his sinker-slider combination in on right-handed hitters.
Enhanced Scouting Report
43Williams, JacksonU OklahomaCR/R5'11"2001986-05-14JR
44Ramirez, NeilKempsville HSRHPR/R6'03"1851989-05-25HS400K
Comments: Ramirez's projectable body and live arm, combined with excellent fastball command should enter him into early round consideration. With his secondary stuff behind the heater, he might be a half-step behind some of the other exciting high school arms in this draft class.
Enhanced Scouting Report
45Jackson, JustinT C Roberson HSSSR/R6'02"1751988-12-11HS400K
Comments: Jackson has been on the radar screen for a long time, with scouts seeing him many times over the years as they came to TC Roberson High School to see Cameron Maybin. He entered into the season as one of the top prep middle infielders in the class, but has seen his stock fall some over the course of the year. His defense has never really been questioned, but his ability to hit at the next level has. He did finish his senior season strongly at the plate and that could help him come draft day.
Enhanced Scouting Report
46Cumberland, AndrewPace HSSSL/R5'10"1751989-01-13HS400K
Comments: Cumberland is one the faster players in this year's draft class and will get a long look from some because of his leadoff potential. He makes good contact, though he'll never hit for power and is simply a solid baseball player who plays the game right. His main drawback is where he fits in defensively, but whether it's at short, second or in the outfield, many think his speed game will play anywhere.
Enhanced Scouting Report
47Vineyard, NathanWoodland HSLHPL/L6'02"2001988-10-03HS400K
Comments: This is turning out to be a pretty good draft for high school lefties and Vineyard adds to the depth at the position. He has the chance to have a good three-pitch mix with a slider that is an out pitch right now. While there's not a ton of projection to make, he should improve on things like command and fastball movement. He might be a tick behind the top prep southpaws on draft day, but he won't fall too far.
Enhanced Scouting Report
48Donaldson, JoshuaAuburn UCR/R6'00"1951985-12-08JR400K
Comments: Donaldson really helped himself with a strong Cape Cod season last summer, but there are concerns about whether he'll be able to catch up to better velocities with the loop in his swing. He may improve with more experience as a full-time catcher, but his arm is below average and he does not profile as a premium catch-and-throw guy. Some see a switch to the infield -- he's played third in college -- but he may make for a good backup catcher who plays the game the right way.
Enhanced Scouting Report
49Burgess, MichaelHillsborough HSRFL/L5'11"1951988-10-20HS400K
Comments: Burgess profiles as a future left-handed power-hitting corner outfielder. While he struggled with his swing early this season, his bat speed and hand-eye coordination will keep scouts intrigued. He can throw and field his position, but it's his bat that will carry him.
Enhanced Scouting Report
50Roemer, WesleyCal St FullertonRHPR/R6'00"1901986-10-07JR400K
Comments: The epitome of the command-and-feel right-hander, Roemer has gone through his college career walking nearly no one. While his stuff is average at best, he can control and command three pitches well in the strike zone. He goes right after hitters and is a tough competitor on the mound. Some feel with his stuff, body type and arm action, he'll be a prototypical right-handed setup man, rather than a starter, as a pro.
