51Poythress, RichardU Georgia1BR/R6'04"2351987-08-11JR
Comments: There's no question some teams will be intrigued by the monster numbers Poythress is putting up in the competitive SEC. Power is his calling card, but with a lack of great bat speed, there is some question how well it will play at the next level. There's no other part of his game that stands out, so someone will have to believe in his power to take him.

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.

48Kehrer, TylerEastern Illinois ULHPL/L6'03"2101988-03-23JR
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.

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.
Enhanced Scouting Report
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.

42Richards, GarrettU OklahomaRHPR/R6'03"2101988-05-27JR
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
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
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
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
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
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.

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
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
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
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
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.

30Washington, LeVonBuchholz HS (FL)2BL/R5'11"1701991-07-26HS
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
28Fuentes, ReymondFernando Callejo HSCFL/L6'00"1991-02-12HS
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
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
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
24Grichuk, RandalLamar Cons HS (TX)LFR/R6'00"1951991-08-13HS
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
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.
