6Skipworth, KylePatriot HS (CA)CL/R6'03"1951990-03-01HS400K
Comments: Arguably the best catching prospect in the Draft class, Skipworth has all the makings of an offensive-minded catcher with plenty of power from the left side, a hot commodity for every organization. He's got plus arm strength, but needs some work in his defensive game, something scouts believe will improve over time.

11Smoak, JustinU South Carolina Columbia1BS/L6'04"2201986-12-05JR400K
Comments: There are a number of top-notch college first basemen in this year's class and Smoak is right at the top of the list. That's because he's got a smooth and easy swing that generates plenty of power from both sides of the plate. This isn't college power; it will translate just fine to the pro game. He can't run and is limited to first base defensively, but there will be more than enough bat to make up for those shortcomings.

26Schlereth, DanielU ArizonaLHPL/L6'00"2101986-05-09SR400K
Comments: Schlereth was drafted in the eighth round last year by the A's, but chose to return to Arizona. He's got three decent offerings, though he struggles at times with commanding them. He misses a lot of bats, but he also will pile up walks at times. He's got a football mentality on the mound, courtesy of his father, former NFLer Mark, and could be the kind of left-handed setup man who gets to the bigs quickly.

48Scheppers, TannerFresno St URHPR/R6'04"1951987-01-17JR400K
Comments: Originally recruited by Fresno State as a shortstop, he's an intriguing right-hander with a ton of upside. He may be a little raw because of his lack of experience -- he showed just two pitches early in the season -- but the above-average fastball and strong early results will be enough to keep scouts coming and keep him moving up Draft charts all spring.

67Satterwhite, CodyU MississippiRHPR/R6'04"2051987-01-27JR400K
Comments: Originally the Ole Miss Saturday starter, Satterwhite got bumped to Sundays because of his uneven performance. Scouts still love his body and his arm strength, but he's gotten hit much more than you'd think he should based on his electric stuff. The issues largely come from inconsistencies in his delivery and despite the subpar season, a team that feels it can tweak his mechanics is still likely to draft the right-hander fairly early.

70Spruill, EzekielKell HS (GA)RHPS/R6'04"1841989-09-11HS400K
Comments: The very definition of a projectable high school right-hander, Spruill has the size and flashes the pitches to be an intriguing prospect. His fastball runs up to 94 mph, though he doesn't always maintain it. He's got a smooth delivery, but a long arm sweep is an issue. There's a lot to work with here, and a team that likes projectable arms won't hesitate to take him.

80Sample, TylerJ K Mullen Prep School (CO)RHPR/R6'07"1989-06-27HS400K
Comments: If you're looking for a big right-hander with power stuff, Sample might be your guy. He's got a fastball that cranks up to 95 mph and a hammer curve. He doesn't use the change much, but it should be a pitch for him in the future. He's never going to be an above-average command guy, but he should throw enough strikes to be successful. He might be a bit of a project, but at 6-foot-7 with that kind of stuff, someone will be willing to try and see it through.

84Stewart, ZacharyTexas Tech URHPR/R6'02"2051986-09-28JR400K
Comments: College closers have become all the rage lately, with some getting drafted early every year. Stewart could be in that group in 2008. The Texas Tech reliever relies on a plus fastball and slider and commands both power offerings well. He's got the kind of makeup you want in a short reliever, a guy who is very aggressive and goes right after hitters. The stuff plus the mentality could push Stewart into early-round consideration.

109Seaton, RossSecond Baptist School (TX)RHPL/R6'04"1901989-09-18HS400K
Comments: Texas isn't providing the usual supply of fireballing high school arms, but Seaton is trying to represent as best he can. With a good fastball and slider, along with a changeup that should work well in the future, he's fairly polished for a high schooler. A good athlete, he's drawn some interest as a hitter as well and if the position or the bonus isn't right, the bright right-hander could head to Tulane as a two-way player.

196Shreve, ColbyCol of Southern NevadaRHPR/R6'05"2101988-01-05J2400K
Comments: A seventh-round pick a year ago by the Atlanta Braves, he looks to improve his Draft standing as one of the better JUCO pitchers in the country. He's added some velocity, up to 96 mph, and while he's still a work in progress, there's plenty to work with in terms of arm strength and size.
