1Strasburg, StephenSan Diego St URHPR/R6'05"2251988-07-20JR
Comments: When you're generally considered to be the top Draft prospect in a class before a game is played, the microscope is going to come out. Strasburg's stuff holds up under such scrutiny for the most part, especially his plus fastball. Nitpickers may look at the secondary offerings as being just average and his command needing a little refinement, but none of that will keep him from being atop just about every Draft board.
Enhanced Scouting Report
2Ackley, DustinUNC Chapel HillCFL/R6'01"1901988-02-26JR
Comments: Ackley might be the best pure hitter in the college ranks, if not the entire draft class. He's got great bat control and plus bat speed that allows him to make consistent contact to all fields. There's some debate about how much power he'll have, but that's really only an issue if he can't eventually return to his best position in center field. He's had to play first since Tommy John surgery last summer. He profiles better in the outfield but at whatever position, those hitting skills should get him off the board early.
Enhanced Scouting Report
3Tate, DonavanCartersville HS (GA)CFR/R6'02"1841990-09-27HS
Comments: Tate is another Georgia high schooler with some serious tools. He doesn't quite have the feel for the game that last year's No. 1 pick Tim Beckham had, but he's also not completely raw. He has the potential to hit for pretty good power, runs well and plays a pretty good center field. There are some questions about his bat and how long it will take to develop. The team that thinks he's going to hit is the one that will take the chance and draft him high.
Enhanced Scouting Report
4Sanchez, JorgeBoston ColCR/R6'00"2151988-05-20JR
Comments: College catchers are always a premium commodity and Sanchez has emerged as one of the better options in this year's group. He's a solid catch-and-throw guy behind the plate, with good overall defensive skills. He also can swing the bat some, with a little power, giving him an intriguing all-around package. He's struggled with conditioning in the past, but he seemed driven to get himself into shape. The benefit has been an outstanding junior season that will probably move him off the board early on Draft day.
Enhanced Scouting Report
5Hobgood, MatthewNorco HS (CA)RHPR/R6'04"2451990-08-03HS
Comments: Hobgood is a big, strong right-hander with two plus offerings in his heavy fastball and outstanding curve. Some small tweaks to his delivery should help him find even better fastball command. If he can add a changeup to go along with his other offerings and his tremendous mound presence, he has the chance to be a front-of-the-rotation starter in the future.
Enhanced Scouting Report
6Wheeler, ZacharyEast Paulding HS (GA)RHPR/R6'03"1801990-05-30HS
Comments: If you like projectable high school pitchers with a lot of arm strength -- and a lot of teams do -- then Wheeler might be the guy for you. The Georgia prepster has plenty of fastball and does show a plus breaking ball at times. Because of some delivery issues, his command can be spotty, but he's an excellent athlete with terrific poise and makeup. He might be a little bit of a project, but the upside is considerable.
Enhanced Scouting Report
7Minor, MichaelVanderbilt ULHPR/L6'03"2001987-12-26JR
Comments: Minor isn't going to wow you, like his former Vandy teammate David Price did, but he's a solid left-handed starting candidate at the next level. He's got a good feel for pitching with at least three pitches that, when he's locked in, he can throw for strikes. He seemed to be getting sharper as the season wore on and was positioning himself to be one of those college lefties who know how to pitch who always go well on Draft day.
Enhanced Scouting Report
8Leake, MichaelArizona St URHPR/R6'00"1801987-11-12JR
Comments: As a six-foot righty, people may want to overlook Leake as a big-time pitching prospect, but they might be missing the boat. He can throw four pitches for strikes and his poise is off the charts. He may not be that big, but he's athletic, strong and durable with an extremely efficient delivery. He's done nothing but perform with the Sun Devils and whoever looks past his size could have themselves a steal.
Enhanced Scouting Report
9Turner, JacobWestminster Christian Academy (MO)RHPR/R6'04"2051991-05-21HS
Comments: Turner is what you look for in a high school rightr-hande -- big, strong and projectable. Thought to be one of the better prep arms in the class, it was unclear whether he'd live up to advanced billing. He has a good arm and there's likely to be more velocity, especially if he can correct some delivery flaws. His secondary pitches lag behind somewhat and his command can be inconsistent as he sometimes elevates his pitches. Still, with his size, athleticism and arm strength, the UNC recruit is likely to garner a lot of interest on Draft day.
Enhanced Scouting Report
10Storen, DrewStanford URHPS/R6'01"1751987-08-01SO
Comments: Storen has the stuff to be a starter and it's not unheard of for a team to take a college closer and let him start as a pro. That being said, there's a reason Stanford has him in the bullpen ... his command hasn't always been sharp. Even as a short reliever, though, his fastball-curve mix is more than enough to get hitters out, especially from the right side. Good college closers usually get drafted well and Storen should be no exception.
Enhanced Scouting Report
11Matzek, TylerCapistrano Valley HS (CA)LHPL/L6'03"2101990-10-19HS
Comments: When Matzek is locked in, it's easy to argue that he's one of the -- if not the -- top high school lefty in this Draft class. With a fastball that reaches 95 mph and two different breaking pitches, he's got the tools necessary to succeed. The one knock is that it seems at times that he's just doing enough to get by. When focused, he really knows how to pitch and put away hitters. It's a package that should go pretty quickly on Draft day.
Enhanced Scouting Report
12Crow, AaronNo SchoolRHPR/R6'02"2051986-11-11NS
Comments: Crow was taken No. 9 overall by the Nationals a year ago, but didn't sign. He went the independent ball route to show scouts this year what he could do and, for the most part, seemed close to the guy many teams liked in 2008. His command was a little off, but on the flip side, his changeup was much improved. Players who have gone the indy route while negotiating or re-entering the draft have tended to improve their standing and it's looking like Crow will be no different.
Enhanced Scouting Report
13Green, GrantU Southern CaliforniaSSR/R6'03"1851987-09-27JR
Comments: Premier college shortstops don't come around all that often and when they do, they get drafted early. That should be the case for Green, who has the potential to shine on both sides of the ball with all five tools. He shook off some early struggles to perform up to expectations, though his lack of energy at times has bothered scouts. Even with that, he's a confident and accomplished college player who shouldn't wait long to hear his name called.
Enhanced Scouting Report
14Purke, MatthewKlein HS (TX)LHPL/L6'03"1751990-07-17HS
Comments: When conversations arise about the top prep lefties in the class, Purke is on the short list. With three excellent offerings and command of them, to go along with a projectable frame, Purke's name comes up early and often. There might be a small concern about his durabilty because he's a little too slender, but that won't be enough to keep him from being taken high up on Draft day.
Enhanced Scouting Report
15White, AlexUNC Chapel HillRHPR/R6'04"1901988-08-29JR
Comments: White was a top high school prospect in 2006, but went to UNC instead. He's still one of the better arms now, though his performance in the spring has been a little uneven. He does have plus stuff with a fastball-slider combination along with the makings of two other pitches. He doesn't always command his fastball that well, but that could be correctable with some mechanical tweaks. With his stuff and his track record, he's likely to go pretty early on Draft Day.
Enhanced Scouting Report
16Borchering, RobertBishop Verot HS (FL)3BS/R6'04"1951990-10-25HS
Comments: Borchering is a third baseman in high school, but it will be his bat that carries him forward. He struggles defensively and may end up at first base. Some clubs may look for more power from that position, which could impact his draft status. That being said, Borchering's hitting skills are definitely legit.
Enhanced Scouting Report
17Pollock, AllenU Notre DameCFR/R6'02"2001987-12-05JR
Comments: Pollock is one of the better college hitters available in this Draft class, with a great approach and the ability to make consistent contact. He won't hit for a ton of power, but has some extra-base ability. His above-average speed helps him on offense and in the field, though he is still learning to play the outfield. He's the type who makes everything look effortless and with his hitting ability, could be the kind of college bat that moves quickly through the Minors.
Enhanced Scouting Report
18James, ChadYukon HS (OK)LHPL/L6'03"1901991-01-23HS
19Miller, ShelbyBrownwood HS (TX)RHPR/R6'03"1951990-10-10HS
Comments: No draft class is complete without at least one strong-armed Texas high schooler and Miller is the best of the lot. He's got a fastball that touches the upper 90s and a potentially plus curve to go along with a perfectly projectable pitcher's frame. His command is iffy and he doesn't have a third pitch right now, but this kind of arm strength with that kind of body usually goes off the board very early on draft day.
Enhanced Scouting Report
20Jenkins, StephenKennesaw St URHPR/R6'04"2351987-12-22JR
Comments: Over the course of his junior season, Jenkins caught up to, then passed up teammate Kyle Heckathorn on Draft boards. With a terrific three-pitch mix and a good idea of how to pitch, Jenkins looks like a durable workhorse who will fit nicely into a big-league rotation in the not-too-distant future. He comes from a small school and doesn't have a long track record of success, but that shouldn't keep him from going off the board in the first round.
Enhanced Scouting Report
21Mier, JiovanniBonita HS (CA)SSR/R6'02"1751990-08-26HS
Comments: Mier looks like a young Nomar Garciaparra on the field. He's a free swinger that should generate a little pop as he matures. Defensively, he's very smooth and makes up for below-average speed with excellent instincts that should allow him to remain at shortstop. He has a quiet confidence on the field and his intangibles are off the charts. He should be one of the better high school shortstops in this year's Draft class.
Enhanced Scouting Report
22Gibson, KyleU Missouri ColumbiaRHPR/R6'06"2101987-10-23JR
Comments: Gibson certainly looked the part of a top college starter in the early part of the season. He has three pitches he can throw for strikes in any count and he shows a lot of poise and a competitive streak on the mound. Scouts love his size at 6-foot-6, though some might worry he's a little too thin. Most look at his combination of stuff, command and mound presence and see a sure-fire first-round pick.
Enhanced Scouting Report
23Mitchell, JaredLouisiana St UCFL/L6'00"1901988-10-13JR
Comments: Mitchell certainly was one of the more intriguing college bats as Draft day approached. Playing for a high-powered LSU team, he showed the exciting athleticism that made him a two-sport standout, with plus speed and flashes of raw power. He's got some serious holes in his swing and, perhaps because of his split focus, he's more projection than anything else right now. Whoever takes him -- and it could be in the first round -- will likely see him as a center fielder who will steal bases and hit for power in the future.
Enhanced Scouting Report
24Grichuk, RandalLamar Cons HS (TX)LFR/R6'00"1951991-08-13HS
25Trout, MichaelMillville Sr HS (NJ)CFR/R6'01"2001991-08-07HS
Comments: Trout is a toolsy high school center fielder who was gaining momentum as the weather in the Northeast warmed up. He looks more like a football safety -- his position in high school -- than a center fielder, but has the tools to play there with plus speed. He just started switch-hitting to enhance his offensive value, and with some changes to his approach at the plate should hit for some power down the line. There is some rawness with the bat, but he has the kind of upside many teams look for in a high school position player, and was moving into first-round conversations as a result.
Enhanced Scouting Report
26Arnett, EricIndiana URHPR/R6'05"2301988-01-25JR
Comments: One of the biggest late risers in the Draft class, Arnett is a big right-hander who put himself into first-round consideration with a breakout junior season. He's got an above-average fastball and a slider that, while inconsistent, could be an out pitch as well. He struggles at times with his release point and arm angle, which hurts the effectiveness of the slider. He's come a long way in a short time, and the lack of track record may make some pause, as will the high pitch counts he had late in the year. But if he can develop an effective offspeed pitch, he's the kind of workhorse who could be a future No. 2 or 3 starter in the big leagues.
Enhanced Scouting Report
27Franklin, NicholasLake Brantley HS (FL)SSS/R6'01"1991-03-02HS
Comments: It seems every Draft class has a few middle infielders from Florida who don't wow you with tools, but impress with how they play the game. Franklin might be in that group with a solid, if unspectacular, tool set. Nothing jumps out at you tools-wise, but he just goes out and does a good job and can do a little bit of everything. He won't be the first prep shortstop to go in the Draft, but his kind of solid all-around profile usually gets taken early.
Enhanced Scouting Report
28Fuentes, ReymondFernando Callejo HSCFL/L6'00"1991-02-12HS
29Heathcott, ZacharyTexas HS (TX)CFL/L6'01"1901990-09-28HS
Comments: Heathcott is a very interesting high school outfielder with plus tools across the board. Even after November ACL surgery, he runs extremely well, has a plus arm from the outfield and can really hit for average and power from the left side of the plate. He's an intense competitor who's only question is about some character issues off the field. The team that gets those questions answered could be the one to take him on Draft Day.
Enhanced Scouting Report
30Washington, LeVonBuchholz HS (FL)2BL/R5'11"1701991-07-26HS
31Jackson, BrettUC BerkeleyCFL/R6'02"2101988-08-02JR
Comments: It's not a great Draft class for college bats, particularly in the outfield, so one with the athleticism Jackson has is bound to be noticed. He runs well on both sides of the ball, has a decent approach at the plate and plays a good center field right now. Some may see him as a tweener who isn't a leadoff hitter or a No. 3 type. If he gets bigger he will have to move to a corner, where how much power he actually has becomes a bigger question. He's got more value if he can stay in center, and the team that takes him may be hoping he can stay put.
Enhanced Scouting Report
32Wheeler, TimothyCal St SacramentoCFL/R6'04"2051988-01-21JR
Comments: Wheeler is a pretty advanced college hitter whose best assets are his ability to make contact and his speed. He should be the type who can hit at or near the top of a lineup with the potential to be a plus base-stealer. He uses his speed well in center and has the skills to stay there. Without much power, he probably won't be off the charts, but could be a very solid college draftee in June.
Enhanced Scouting Report
33Baron, StevenJohn A. Ferguson School (FL)CR/R6'00"1951990-12-07HS
Comments: Baron hasn't received as much attention among the catching crop, but he should. The Miami-area standout has outstanding catch and throw skills. He's had some issues with his timing at the plate, but he's got good bat speed and does have the potential to hit for power. He's a natural leader with outstanding makeup who already calls his own game, and that kind of skill set will always get plenty of attention on Draft day.
Enhanced Scouting Report
34Brothers, RexLipscomb ULHPL/L6'00"2051987-12-18JR
Comments: Brothers was gaining as much "helium" as any pitcher in the draft class as the spring wore on. He'd always been intriguing because of his arm strength that delivers a fastball that can touch 96-97 mph and a pretty good slider. He took a leap up this season, thanks to a better understanding of how to pitch and the ability to find the strike zone more consistently. If that continues throughout the remainder of his season, he'll go off the board in a hurry.
Enhanced Scouting Report
35Davidson, MatthewYucaipa HS (CA)3BR/R6'03"2101991-03-26HS
Comments: A solid, safe high school Draftee, Davidson is a great kid with solid, if unspectacular, skills across the board. His best tool might be his future power, but he should have the arm and glove to stay at third defensively. He struggled a bit as a junior and whether people buy into his summer performance as the real deal will be what determines his Draft status as the spring goes on.
Enhanced Scouting Report
36Miller, AaronBaylor ULHPL/L6'03"2051987-09-18JR
Comments: A two-way player at Baylor, it seems likely that Miller's future lies in the outfield. He's got a great swing from the left side, with excellent pitch recognition -- his main problem is he's too selective at times -- and he should hit for some power at the next level. He's a decent runner and has a strong arm, making it easy to see him patrolling right field in a big league ballpark one day. In a Draft class lacking impact college bats, Miller shouldn't have any problem generating interest.
Enhanced Scouting Report
37Paxton, JamesU KentuckyLHPL/L6'03"2101988-11-06JR
Comments: Paxton is a college lefty who was on the rise late in the Draft season. The Kentucky product has two potential plus pitches in his fastball, which has been up to 98 mph, and a short power slider. The third pitch, a changeup, hasn't always been on display, but he hasn't needed it much at the college level. He repeats his delivery well and can carry the velocity throughout starts, though there are some who think his command and arm action may mean he'll be a reliever in the future. At least some feel he can start and it's likely to be one of those teams that takes him off the board early.
Enhanced Scouting Report
38Phegley, JoshuaIndiana UCR/R5'10"2151988-02-12JR
Comments: Few question whether Phegley can hit. He's got great skills at the plate. The questions are about his abilities behind it. He does some things well as a catcher, like calling his own game, but he has real trouble with pitchers who have a lot of movement. The more you believe in the bat, the higher you may take him. If a team thinks he can catch every day, he'll go plenty early because of the offense. If not, he's still a solid MLB backup, though that's not the type you take as quickly.
Enhanced Scouting Report
39Davis, KentrailU TennesseeCFL/R5'09"1951988-06-29SO
Comments: The sophomore-eligible outfielder has not followed up on his strong freshman year, but he's still going to gain a lot of interest as the spring wears on. A fireplug of an outfielder, he's got above-average raw power, though he's struggled to get to it this season. He's currently playing center, but the prevailing thought is that he's a left fielder in the future. Once moved to a corner, the bat and his power become that much more important. If a team feels this season is just a matter of him trying to do too much, they'll bet on that bat pretty early.
Enhanced Scouting Report
40Skaggs, TylerSanta Monica HS (CA)LHPL/L6'04"1801991-07-13HS
Comments: Everyone loves a decent lefty and Skaggs has the chance to be a good one. Tall and lean, he's got the protypical body type scouts love -- and he's got two above-average to plus pitches to go along with it. Good performances this spring could put this prep southpaw high on many Draft boards.
Enhanced Scouting Report
41Owings, ChristopherGilbert HS (SC)SSR/R5'11"1701991-08-12HS
Comments: Owings plays shortstop for his high school team, but that might not be his best defensive home as a pro, with a move to second perhaps on tap because of his arm strength and range. On the other side of second, his hands will play fine and he could be an offensive-minded second baseman who hits for average at the next level. He doesn't have much power, but he does use the whole field well. He doesn't have a plus tool, but he's the type of player who, if you're patient with him, will be better than the sum of his parts.
Enhanced Scouting Report
42Richards, GarrettU OklahomaRHPR/R6'03"2101988-05-27JR
43Boxberger, BradleyU Southern CaliforniaRHPR/R6'02"2001988-05-27JR
Comments: Boxberger definitely improved his Draft status with his first several starts. While many had seen him as a reliever in the future, he's emerged as a legitimate starting prospect with his performance. The key has been his ability to maintain his velocity deep into his starts, something he hadn't done in the past. And while his command is still a little inconsistent, it's better than it has been. Combine that with a full repertoire of pitches and if Boxberger keeps it up, he'll seriously enter the first-round conversation.
Enhanced Scouting Report
44Scheppers, TannerNo SchoolRHPR/R6'04"1951987-01-17NS
Comments: Pitching in intrasquad action at Golden West C.C., Scheppers was creating a ton of buzz on the West Coast. The former Fresno State standout, whose Draft status took a hit because of a shoulder injury last year, was throwing free, easy and hard in early looks. With a plus fastball and the potential for a plus curve, if Scheppers continues to show he's healthy while pitching for the St. Paul Saints, he's going to shoot up Draft boards everywhere.

45Belfiore, MichaelBoston ColLHPR/L6'03"2201988-10-03JR
46Bashore, MatthewIndiana ULHPL/L6'02"2001988-04-06JR
47Heckathorn, KyleKennesaw St URHPR/R6'06"2231988-06-17JR
Comments: Heckathorn is sure to be fairly high on everyone's list, thanks to his size, strength and pure power aresenal. He can pump his fastball up into the mid-to-upper 90s, has a hard slider to go along with it and generally throws strikes. The one puzzling thing for the right-hander has been that he hasn't dominated his competition or missed bats as much as you'd expect with that stuff. His size and stuff will ensure he's off the board before long, but he might be a half-step behind the upper-echelon college arms this year.

50Kobernus, JeffreyUC Berkeley2BR/R6'02"2101988-06-30JR
Comments: Kobernus is not the kind of elite college bat scouts might be looking for, but then again, that doesn't really exist in this class. He's got a real chance to be a prototypical No. 2 hitter. He's a solid second baseman who really turns the double play well. He may not be that premium hitter, but he's got some solid attributes that should have him off the board fairly early.
