91Vasquez, ErnestDurango HS (NV)SSR/R5'11"1751989-02-26HS400K
Comments: Vasquez played in his first game of the season at the end of March because he was academically ineligible. When he's on the field, he shows a bat that could translate into a .270 hitter with 20-25 home run pop down the line. He has well below-average speed, which turns some off when considering him as a shortstop, but he's got the arm and the actions to stay there for now. If he fills out, he could handle a move to third, both with the glove and what's expected from that position offensively, in the future.

95Liebel, AndrewCal St Long BeachRHPR/R6'01"1951986-03-22SR400K
Comments: College seniors are always intriguing draftees, largely because they appear to be easier signs, and Liebel could be among the first to hear his name called. Long Beach State's Friday starter has competed well, averaging nearly eight innings per start, despite having just average stuff across the board. He does have a pretty good idea of how to pitch and that, along with his competitive nature, should be enough to get him drafted.

98Pribanic, BenjaminU Nebraska LincolnRHPR/R6'04"2001986-09-01JR400K
Comments: A junior college transfer, Pribanic has opened some eyes this spring as Nebraska's Sunday starter. With a big leg kick, he's run his fastball up to 94 mph and shown the ability to throw an average changeup and slider. A strong competitor, he doesn't have much of a track record to go from, but if he pitches this well all season, that won't matter.

99Green, ScottU KentuckyRHPR/R6'07"2401985-08-10SR400K
Comments: Green turned down a large bonus offer a year ago when the Red Sox drafted him in the 15th round, hoping he'd have a strong junior season and vault himself into the first round. Whether he sees that kind of money again remains to be seen, but his performance, one that's seen him taken from the rotation and nearly buried in the bullpen at Kentucky, doesn't point to a guy who's going to go early. That being said, his size and arm strength will still be enough to intrigue someone to take a chance.

104Eichhorn, KevinAptos HS (CA)RHPR/R6'00"1701990-02-06HS400K
Comments: A huge start in front of a large audience at the National Classic in late March certainly didn't hurt, but Eichhorn will have to work past the "undersized righty" stigma. He does have two decent offerings, plus command and poise to help him with that, as well as good bloodlines -- his father Mark spent 11 seasons in the bigs. A few years at Santa Clara might not hurt, but that will depend on when he's drafted.

106Adams, DavidU Virginia2BR/R6'02"2051987-05-15JR400K
Comments: The University of Virginia has become a good proving ground for legit pro prospects in recent years, and while Adams isn't Ryan Zimmerman, he should do pretty well in this year's Draft. A solid hard-nosed type, he gets the ultimate praise from scouts as being a real "baseball player." He's hit in the past, but didn't fare so well this season, which might affect him somewhat, but likely not too much.

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.

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.

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.
