3Hosmer, EricAmerican Heritage School (FL)1BL/L6'04"2151989-10-24HS400K
Comments: Arguably the top high school bat in the Draft class, the lefty first baseman has drawn comparisons to Casey Kotchman for his advanced hitting approach, though he might not quite be there. He's got a ton of upside with the bat, both in terms of hitting for average and power and he's surprisingly nimble defensively. Teams who like high school hitters with potential to move fairly quickly will be on Hosmer all spring.

1455Hicks, DaltonLake Brantley HS (FL)1BL/R6'05"2281990-04-02HS400K
Comments: If you're looking for a high school bat with plus power, this might be your guy. Hicks has plenty of it from the left side of the plate, both in the present and future tense. He makes good consistent contact and can drive the ball to all fields. He's limited to first base defensively, and while he's no gold glover, he should hold his own there. Also a right-handed pitcher, it's his size and power bat that should interest scouts the most.

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.

18Davis, IsaacArizona St U1BL/L6'04"2151987-03-22JR400K
Comments: On radars since high school, when he was a 19th-round pick of the Rays in 2005, the son of ex-big leaguer Ron Davis has a sweet left-handed swing that should generate more power in the future. He's not speedy, but he is a solid base runner and would be fine as a corner outfielder or first baseman at the next level.

17Cooper, DavidUC Berkeley1BL/L6'00"1751987-02-12JR400K
Comments: There are a number of college first basemen to choose from this Draft season and Cooper is making a case to be among the first to be chosen. He's got legitimate power to all fields and his advanced approach at the plate helps him avoid any slumps. Somewhat limited defensively, there's no doubt a team will take him fairly early just to get that bat into its system.
