23Dykstra, AllanWake Forest U1BL/R6'05"2401987-05-21JR400K
Comments: In another year, Dykstra might be a hot commodity as a college lefty power-hitting first baseman with advanced skills at the plate. But if there's one strength in this class, it's first basemen, and he's probably a half-step behind the elite players at the spot. An experiment at third didn't work, so Dykstra will probably have to wait -- albeit not too long -- until other first sackers go off the board.

69Darnell, JamesU South Carolina Columbia3BR/R6'02"1987-01-19JR400K
Comments: Not as much a pure hitter as his South Carolina teammates Justin Smoak and Reese Havens, Darnell still makes solid contact and has some line-drive power, particularly to the pull side. The Cape League All-Star is strong, but not very agile defensively. That could force a move to a corner-outfield position in the future. How much people think he can develop his raw power may determine how quickly he gets drafted.

111Carroll, SwainU KentuckyRFL/R6'04"2151986-05-09SR400K
Comments: Carroll turned down an offer a year ago to sign with the Nationals as an 18th-round pick to return to Kentucky. The Wildcats must be happy as the senior was among the Division I leaders in hitting for much of the year and has dramatically improved his power output. Scouts do not think, however, that the power will translate to the pro game, and the fact that Carroll will be limited to left field, at best, does cap his Draft status somewhat. Still, he's bound to enhance his round by a good margin this June.

42Decker, JaffSunrise Mountain HS (AZ)CFL/L5'10"1901990-02-23HS400K
Comments: While most people were looking at Decker as a hitter, there probably are still some who might consider him on the mound. He can throw upwards of 93 mph with a decent curve, and that arm strength serves him well in the outfield. He's got a pretty good approach as a hitter and has the chance to hit for pretty good power, looking like a Matt Stairs-like right fielder in the future.
