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.

151Nieto, AdrianAmerican Heritage School (FL)CS/R6'00"1989-11-12HS400K
Comments: Generally considered to be the second-best prep catcher in the Draft class, Nieto has a solid approach at the plate and a very strong arm behind it. However, an elbow injury last year has limited his time behind the plate and he struggled a bit defensively early this season. On the same team as top prospect Eric Hosmer, he'll get plenty of chances to show improvement in front of scouts this spring.

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.

11Smoak, JustinU South Carolina Columbia1BS/L6'04"2201986-12-05JR400K
Comments: There are a number of top-notch college first basemen in this year's class and Smoak is right at the top of the list. That's because he's got a smooth and easy swing that generates plenty of power from both sides of the plate. This isn't college power; it will translate just fine to the pro game. He can't run and is limited to first base defensively, but there will be more than enough bat to make up for those shortcomings.
Enhanced Scouting Report
70Spruill, EzekielKell HS (GA)RHPS/R6'04"1841989-09-11HS400K
Comments: The very definition of a projectable high school right-hander, Spruill has the size and flashes the pitches to be an intriguing prospect. His fastball runs up to 94 mph, though he doesn't always maintain it. He's got a smooth delivery, but a long arm sweep is an issue. There's a lot to work with here, and a team that likes projectable arms won't hesitate to take him.

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.
