53Cunningham, ToddJacksonville StateCFS/R6'00"2001989-03-20JR
Comments: With a good approach and great balance at the plate, Cunningham stood out early as one of the more advanced college hitters in the Draft class. He should hit for average and with some power down the road. His plus speed will allow him to steal bases and defend well in the outfield. While he'd be OK in center, he could be a plus defender in left, with the only real question being if he'll have enough pop to profile as a corner guy. Even with that one small concern, Cunningham is setting himself up to possibly be one of the earlier college bats taken in June.

57Workman, BrandonTexasRHPR/R6'05"2251988-08-13JR
Comments: Scouts have known about Workman for quite some time, and he was a third-round pick of the Phillies in 2007. Over the course of his Longhorns career and a couple of Cape Cod League stints, he's done little to hurt his stock. With a solid repertoire, good command and bulldog mentality, he's the kind of top-program college starter who will undoubtedly get many looks in the early going on Draft Day.
Enhanced Scouting Report
65Golden, ReggieWetumpka HS (AL)CFR/R5'10"2101991-10-10HS
Comments: Every Draft class has players who fit the high-risk, high-reward label. Golden is a raw and toolsy high school outfielder with speed and power. He shows some feel for hitting, but never consistently. More than anything, Golden needs to play and gain experience. More of a student of the game than people might think, once Golden gets to play more and receives full-time instruction, the tools could sharpen. That's what the team that takes him -- and it likely won't take too long for that to happen -- will be banking on.
Enhanced Scouting Report
62LaMarre, RyanMichiganCFR/L6'02"1988-11-21JR
Comments: LaMarre's name was shooting up Draft boards when he showed he was fully recovered from an early thumb injury. He can swing the bat and has made some nice adjustments following a rough summer on the Cape. He runs well, though isn't a burner, and plays good defense. While he might be a tweener -- not enough speed for center, not enough power for a corner -- his overall skill set and baseball know-how had his name being mentioned in first-round conversations.
Enhanced Scouting Report
55Washington, LeVonChipola JCCFL/R5'11"1701991-07-26J1
Comments: The first-round pick of the Tampa Bay Rays a year ago, Washington didn't sign and opted to attend Chipola Junior College, instead. He got off to a very slow start, though he was turning it on with the bat as the spring wore on. He still has the hitting ability and speed that scouts liked a year ago, but the question about where he might be able to play defensively still remains. He has the range to play center field, but the arm and instincts might mean a try at second base instead. Add to that a perceived lack of energy from the athletic Washington, and he's been a bit of an enigma this spring. That said, there's bound to be a team that will buy into the tools and hope it can get Washington to apply all of them on a regular basis.
Enhanced Scouting Report
76Bettis, ChadTexas TechRHPR/R6'01"1951989-04-26JR
Comments: Bettis has had more success as a reliever than as a starter, particularly last summer as Team USA's closer, and that's likely where he'll find his future role. Bettis has a plus fastball, a hard breaking ball and a changeup at his disposal, though sometimes mechanical issues flatten out his stuff and make him hittable. He does go right after hitters, and being shortened up for an inning or two should help his stuff play up. Texas Tech moved him back into a relief role (if he didn't relieve on Friday or Saturday, he would start on Sunday) and that could help his Draft status. Even if he doesn't close at the next level, he could be a pretty productive setup guy.
Enhanced Scouting Report
63Petricka, JacobIndiana StateRHPR/R6'04"1901988-06-05SR
Comments: This tall right-hander was creating a lot of buzz later in the spring when reports of him touching 98 mph spread like wildfire. His secondary stuff isn't as good as the heater, though his curve ball has improved this year and his changeup has a chance to be a decent offering. There's not a ton of life in the fastball, but he throws without much effort. People were pouring in to see him late, and that kind of arm strength tends to do very well in the Draft.
68Smyly, DrewArkansasLHPL/L6'03"1901989-06-13JR
Comments: Brett Eibner gets most of the pub for arms coming from Arkansas, but Smyly's a viable prospect in his own right. The lefty has a four-pitch mix with a fastball he can run up to 93 mph, an average curve (74-76 mph), a cutter he throws 84-86 mph that grades out as average and a 78-80 mph changeup. He's the type who could fit nicely at the back end of the rotation or as a quality lefty specialist on a big league staff.
73Rasmussen, RobertUCLALHPR/L5'10"1601989-04-02JR
Comments: Rasmussen is a pretty advanced college lefty with an interesting combination of pitchability and stuff. He has four pitches he's around the plate with, though he does need to be a little more efficient with his pitches. He's a bit undersized, which might concern some, but he does a nice job mixing his pitches and keeping hitters guessing. If the spike in velocity he showed early in the spring is still around all season, he could sneak even further up Draft boards.
Enhanced Scouting Report
58Velasquez, VincentGarey HS (CA)RHPS/R6'03"1851992-06-07HS
Comments: Velasquez raised many eyebrows with his breakout performance at the Urban Youth Academy. In the past, Velasquez had largely been a position player, partially because of an injury and partially because that's how he viewed himself. He may be forced to change his view because there's no doubt scouts see him on the mound after he was throwing a live fastball a good curve and a plus change. Add in good athleticism, excellent mechanics and the kind of projectable body scouts love, if Velasquez continues to throw that well, he'll move up the charts among high school arms in a hurry.
Enhanced Scouting Report
54Eibner, BrettArkansasCFR/R6'03"2051988-12-02JR
Comments: Eibner is a two-way player who has some ability as an outfielder, though most agree his future is on the mound. His time spent hitting has no doubt held back his development as a pitcher, but he still shows the potential to have three pitches he can throw for strikes with smooth mechanics. Once he focuses on pitching, there might be more in the tank and his athleticsm certainly helps him on the mound. He's an intriguing college starting pitching prospect with upside -- and if he continues performing like he did at the start of the season, he will rush up Draft boards.
Enhanced Scouting Report
78Cash, RalstonLakeview Academy (GA)RHPR/R6'01"1971991-08-20HS
Comments: In 2009, Cash was named the 2009 Baseball Player of the Year by the Gainesville Times along with First Team All-Area and Region 8-A Pitcher of the Year. Ralston signed to play at the University of Georgia.
64Nelson, JamesAlabamaRHPR/R6'06"2401989-06-05JR
Comments: There will invariably be a number of college arms taken at or near the top of the Draft. Once you get past that top tier, there are always steals to be found. Nelson could very well fit into that group as Alabama's Saturday starter. He has three pitches, with the fastball and slider being his best two options. If he can develop his changeup, he could be a very good starting option for a team that's seeking some advanced pitching after that first group.
Enhanced Scouting Report
71Goodrum, CartierFayette County HS (GA)SSS/R6'03"1671992-02-28HS
Comments: Goodrum fits the mold of the high-risk, high-reward toolsy high school athlete. He has plenty of speed and some raw power from both sides of the plate, but his swing and approach will need work so he can tap into that power. Currently a shortstop, most foresee a move to the outfield, where he could put his speed and above-average arm to good use in center field. The big question is whether he'll be able to hit enough at the next level. The team that thinks he will is the one that will take a chance on his high ceiling.
Enhanced Scouting Report
82Gumbs, AngeloTorrance HS (CA)SSR/R6'00"1751992-10-13HS
60Cabrera, YordyLakeland Senior HS (FL)3BR/R6'01"2041990-09-03HS
Comments: Cabrera certainly looks the part of a ballplayer in terms of his build and how he carries himself on the baseball field. He has the raw tools as well -- it's just a question of whether he'll learn to use them consistently. He has plenty of power, but there is some concern about his ability to recognize pitches well enough to tap into that power. His days as a shortstop are likely numbered, with a move to third or an outfield corner in his future. His athleticism and upside will have many teams interested, and the team who believes it can tap into that will be the one to take him.
Enhanced Scouting Report
77Garner, PercyBall StateRHPR/R6'03"2251988-12-13JR
52Allie, StetsonSt. Edward HS (OH)RHPR/R6'02"1991-03-13HS
Comments: Allie has one of the best pure arms in the Draft, especially among the high school set. He can get his fastball into the upper 90s with good movement. He has good secondary stuff as well but tends not to maintain it deep into starts. As a result, he could eventually wind up in the bullpen. High school relievers don't typically do all that well, but this kind of arm strength doesn't grow on trees. There are bound to be teams who will work with him as a starter and see what happens.
Enhanced Scouting Report
59Gyorko, JeddWest Virginia2BR/R5'10"1951988-09-23JR
Comments: It seems that every Draft class has at least one good, advanced college bat that comes in a less-than-athletic looking body without a true position. This year, Gyorko likely will head that group. He knows how to hit and should have at least average power. He doesn't run well, however, and it's highly unlikely he'll stay at shortstop at the next level. The team who feels he'll be able to watch his body and have just enough range to be an offensive-minded second baseman may be the one to take him.
Enhanced Scouting Report
67Littlewood, MarcusPineview HS (UT)SSS/R6'03"1981992-03-18HS
Comments: Littlewood looks the part of a ballplayer with a solid, athletic frame. He has good hands and a plus arm in the infield, but his size and lack of speed will likely necessitate a move from shortstop. If he moves to third, the question will be if the bat will play there. He's a switch-hitter with a nice swing, but right now it doesn't look like he projects to have enough power for a corner. That could mean a future as a utility guy, but a team who believes in the frame and the defensive skills and sees upside with the swing will take a chance.
Enhanced Scouting Report
74Parker, JarrettVirginiaCFL/L6'04"2101989-01-01JR
Comments: Parker had a rough go of it in the Cape Cod League last summer, but there was hope that he'd bounce back and fulfill expectaitons of being one of the more interesting college hitters in this year's class. It hasn't really worked out that way as he's struggled to find offensive consistency, though he was coming on a little bit late. What he does have is plenty of speed, which gives him the ability to steal bases and play a superb center field. Those are marketable skills, and the team that thinks he'll hit will still nab the Virginia outfielder fairly early on.
Enhanced Scouting Report
75Swagerty, JordanArizona StateRHPS/R6'01"1751989-07-14SO
Comments: Swagerty is a draft-eligible sophomore who has been a two-way player as a catcher and a reliever. His future as a pro will be on the mound as he brings three outstanding pitches and good command to the table. While it might be tempting to try someone with that combination of skills as a starter, his aggressive approach on the mound, a delivery that has some effort to it and not the biggest frame in the world, relief work appears to be his calling. He profiles as the type of college reliever who could be quick to the big leagues, and those are typically in high demand when the Draft rolls around.
Enhanced Scouting Report
79Dietrich, DerekGeorgia TechSSL/R6'01"1951989-07-18JR
Comments: A third-round pick by the Houston Astros in 2007, Dietrich has shown plenty of ability to hit over his career at Georgia Tech, though it hasn't always been consistent. He does seem to be saving his best for the right time, as he's been producing well all spring. Most feel he'll have to move from short to third as a pro, at which point questions about his future power will come more into play. He's certainly been evaluated enough over the years, so it will come down to which team has seen him perform best, especially this year, and believes the bat will continue to come on.
Enhanced Scouting Report
66Thompson, JacobCal State - Long BeachRHPR/R6'03"2251989-08-08JR
Comments: Thompson's name was moving up Draft boards over the course of the spring as an intriguing college right-hander who appeared to figure some things out. Having left high school a year early, he's still very young, but the maturing process may have started in earnest this season. He shows the ability to throw three pitches for strikes and maintain his stuff and velocity deep into his starts. Even if the changeup doesn't completely come around, he could be a very good short relief option with his fastball-slider combination. Either way, Thompson was turning upside into performance, and that should help him move into the early rounds.
Enhanced Scouting Report
72Buckel, CodyRoyal HS (CA)RHPR/R6'00"1701992-06-18HS
Comments: Perhaps a tier below the top prep arms in this Draft class, Buckel does have an interesting mix of stuff, with three pitches he can throw for strikes now, and athleticism. He's not the big, projectable right-hander many teams look for in high school pitchers, but he has a good feel for pitching and is a strong competitor on the mound. There tends to be a bias against smallish right-handers, but the team that looks past that could get a pretty good find here.
Enhanced Scouting Report
61Murphy, GriffinRedlands East Valley HS (CA)LHPR/L6'03"2001991-01-16HS
Comments: Murphy began to separate himself among high school lefties with his performance at the Urban Youth Academy Showcase in February. His fastball velocity was up, his curve ball was tighter and he showed some good action with his changeup. His stuff was even more effective with the improved command that was on display. The southpaw is tall, strong and athletic. His stock went way up at the UYA Showcase and will continue to climb if he keeps throwing like he did in Compton.
