2Alvarez, PedroVanderbilt U3BL/R6'02"2121987-02-06JR400K
Comments: Alvarez entered the season as the top player, talent-wise, in the Draft, and even though he missed a chunk of the season after suffering a broken hamate bone in his right hand, his status hasn't suffered. While his timing and strength have been slow in fully returning, most are confident it will and point to a long track record of success for Alvarez. The only thing that could affect his status on Draft day are perceived bonus demands, but it's unlikely they will force any huge slide out of the first several picks.

41Flaherty, RyanVanderbilt USSL/R6'03"2001986-07-27JR400K
Comments: A strong and athletic infielder with a classic left-handed swing, he's drawn a comparison to Wally Joyner in terms of his offensive skill set. He should hit for average, but hasn't shown much power at this point. Defensively, he's got a good arm, but does not have the range to stay at short. A move to third might make the most sense given his size.

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.

297O'Sullivan, RyanValhalla HS (CA)RHPR/R6'01"1801990-09-05HS400K
Comments: O'Sullivan, whose brother Sean is in the Angels organization, hopes to follow in his footsteps as a pitchability right-hander. There's not a whole lot of projection for him, but he does have the chance to throw three Major League average pitches.

336De La Osa, DominicVanderbilt U2BR/R5'11"2051986-01-13SR400K
Comments: The senior was taken in the 10th round of the 2007 Draft by the Tigers, but chose to return to Vanderbilt for his senior season. He's very strong and has power to all fields with a fairly short swing. As an outfielder, he's limited to a corner. That puts more pressure on him to show he can hit. How he swings the bat will greatly determine his Draft status.
