151Nieto, AdrianAmerican Heritage School (FL)CS/R6'00"1989-11-12HS400K
Comments: Generally considered to be the second-best prep catcher in the Draft class, Nieto has a solid approach at the plate and a very strong arm behind it. However, an elbow injury last year has limited his time behind the plate and he struggled a bit defensively early this season. On the same team as top prospect Eric Hosmer, he'll get plenty of chances to show improvement in front of scouts this spring.

87Espinosa, DanielCal St Long BeachSSS/R6'00"1901987-04-25JR400K
Comments: Yes, it's another shortstop courtesy of Long Beach State. This one doesn't have quite the offensive skill set that his predecessors had, but he can handle the bat a little bit. Defensively, he's got outstanding instincts and a plus arm. He may not go as high as Crosby, Tulo and Longoria did, but he's sure to garner plenty of interest.

55Hood, DestinSt Pauls Episcopal HS (AL)LFR/R6'01"1801990-04-03HS400K
Comments: Prospects with the pure athletic ability of Hood will always attract interest. Hood has the potential to do it all, particularly hit with power and run. A shortstop in high school, he'll undoubtedly move to the outfield as a pro. He has some feel for the game, but overall is more projection right now. The big question is whether the team that drafts him will be able to sign him away from being a two-sport star at the University of Alabama.

9Crow, AaronU Missouri ColumbiaRHPR/R6'02"2051986-11-11JR400K
Comments: After a strong Cape season, he was high atop Draft lists heading into his junior campaign. He's done nothing to hurt his status, showing three plus pitches to dominate hitters and establish himself as one of the top college arms, if not the top college arm, in the Draft class.
