12Weeks, JemileU Miami2BS/R5'10"1751987-01-26JR400K
Comments: Even though he plays the same position as his older brother, Rickie, Jemile is not the same kind of player. He doesn't have, and likely will never have, the kind of power Rickie does. He runs extremely well and with a line-drive approach, could be a good table setter. His defense is somewhat in question, but a move to center would fix that. The Brewers drafted Weeks in the eighth round in 2005 and it's clear that it was more than just a favor to his brother.

58Ross, TysonUC BerkeleyRHPR/R6'05"2151987-04-22JR400K
Comments: Ross has all the makings of a front-of-the-rotation starter, from stuff to size. He's very imposing on the mound with a fastball that runs up to the mid-90s. He's got two other pitches that work well, albeit with an upright delivery that worries some, but it's worked for him to this point.
Enhanced Scouting Report
90Paramore, PrestonArizona St UCS/R6'02"2051986-10-30JR400K
Comments: These numbers may sum him up: In his first two seasons, he committed four total errors and walked 17 times more than he struck out. While he has a good game plan and handles the bat fine, particularly from the right side, it's his all-around defensive acumen that should interest scouts the most.

1294Maronde, JohnLexington Catholic HS (KY)LHPS/L6'03"1951989-09-05HS400K
Comments: It's not often that you can tell someone to head to Kentucky to see top-notch Draft prospects, but that's the case in 2008. Maronde may be the cream of that crop, a projectable lefty with an above-average fastball and the possibility of two other pitches to go with it. Some issues with mechanics have led to command problems, but that certainly won't keep a team from taking him fairly early in the Draft.

664Guilmet, PrestonU ArizonaRHPR/R6'02"2001987-07-27JR400K
Comments: Pitchers who simply produce in college often get overlooked early, but invariably get drafted, particularly by some teams who value that kind of performance. Guilmet won't light up a radar gun, but he's got three outstanding secondary pitches and excellent command. He's come down to earth a little bit from last year's Pac 10 Pitcher of the Year performance, but he's still a strike thrower with an unorthodox and deceptive delivery. That delivery has some thinking he's a middle reliever or swingman in the future, but there's no question he knows how to pitch.
