114D'Arnaud, ChasePepperdine USSR/R6'02"2001987-01-21JR
115Melville, TimothyWentzville Holt HS (MO)RHPR/R6'05"2101989-10-09HS400K
Comments: One of the top high school arms in the Draft class, Melville has a big projectable frame which has plenty of room for growth. Already possessing above-average arm strength, he could add even more velocity in the future. He shows glimpses of a good knuckle-curve, but will have to find more consistency with it. Same goes for his changeup, which is clearly his third pitch. He draws some comparisons to Yankee Phil Hughes when he was in high school and should find himself gone in the first round just as Hughes did.

117Crawford, BrandonUC Los AngelesSSL/R6'02"2001987-01-21JR400K
Comments: After his first two seasons at UCLA, Crawford seemed poised to be one of the top collegiate middle infielders in the class. But a rough Cape season appears to have carried over and he's lost some confidence in his game, both at the plate and in the field. Some added thickness to his lower half has taken away a little of his quickness, though he's still a solid shortstop. If he can right himself, he's the kind of player who usually sees himself go off the board within the first couple of rounds.

123Wieland, JosephBishop Manogue HS (NV)RHPR/R6'03"1990-01-21HS400K
Comments: While he doesn't belong in the discussion of elite pitchers in this Draft class, Wieland does have some pretty good pitchability. Not too many high schoolers can throw their breaking ball for strikes at will, but count Wieland among the few. With the ability to command his fastball and a feel for a change, the wiry right-hander is the kind of high schooler who could move fairly well through a system and emerge as a back-of-the-rotation type in the future.

125Gorgen, ScottUC IrvineRHPR/R5'10"1901987-01-27JR400K
Comments: Gorgen's combination of stuff, command and makeup in a different package would be flying up Draft charts everywhere. But as a stocky "undersized righty," he'll have to fight an uphill battle to get the recognition he probably deserves. There are always teams who look outside that certain box, and his ability to throw three pitches -- fastball, curve, changeup -- for strikes to go along with a terrific work ethic should entice one of them to take him.

128Romanski, JoshuaU San DiegoLHPL/L5'11"1801986-10-18JR400K
Comments: There is some debate over Romanski's value, whether it's higher on the mound or in the outfield. He's got a solid hitting approach with occasional power and he's OK in center field, though few think he could play there every day at the next level. He might be a bit of a tweener who ends up being a pretty good fourth OF one day.

133Jacobson, BrettVanderbilt URHPR/R6'06"2051986-11-09JR400K
Comments: With a tall, projectable frame, scouts have always been intrigued with Jacobson. He has the ability to throw three decent pitches -- fastball, curve, changeup -- for strikes and from a downhill plane. He doesn't have the prettiest delivery in the world and some issues with fastball command hurt him early on this season, something he'll have to straighten out to get serious consideration early in June.

134Ratliff, SeanStanford UCFL/L6'03"2251987-02-24JR400K
Comments: College power hitters are always going to draw interest, even inconsistent ones. Ratliff hasn't always been able to make consistent contact, but he manages to show enough to remain intriguing. A center fielder for now, the team who thinks he'll turn his sometimes power into something frequent enough to man a corner spot will take a chance on him.
Enhanced Scouting Report
135Kipnis, JasonArizona St UCFL/R5'10"1751987-04-03JR400K
Comments: A sophomore eligible outfielder who transferred from Kentucky after being dismissed from that team for rules violations, Kipnis will get plenty of looks thanks to ASU's star-studded roster. If he can prove he can handle playing center and runs well, that will increase his stats. Otherwise, he may be viewed more as a fourth-outfielder type.
