125Lewis, ChadMarina HS (CA)3BR/R6'03"2001991-12-10HS
Comments: Lewis looks the part of a third baseman, from his offensive skill set to his glove work to his physical appearance. Tall and muscular, he can hit to all fields and should have more than enough power for the position. He has the hands, range and arm to stick at third as well. While there are some issues with his swing, he's shown a knack for performing well under the spotlight. The total package makes him one of the more intriguing high school position players in the 2010 Draft class.

123Doran, RobertTexas TechRHPR/R6'06"2251989-03-21JR
122Vaughn, CorySan Diego StateCFR/R6'04"2251989-05-01JR
Comments: In 2009, as a sophomore, Cory was a First-Team All-Mountain West Conference selection as an outfielder. He was a 43rd-round selection of the Philadelphia Phillies in 2007 but did not sign.
121Munson, KevinJames Madison UniversityRHPR/R6'02"2001989-01-03JR
Comments: Finding bullpen help is never easy, but it's become much more common to do it via the Draft in recent years, as college closers are taken in the hopes they can move quickly through a system. Munson could be one of those types, with a very good fastball-slider mix and the right attitude to pitch in short relief. He's strong and durable, though also physically mature. There may not be a college reliever who goes high in the first round like last year, but Munson could be among the first of his type to go.
Enhanced Scouting Report
120Blair, KyleUniversity of San DiegoRHPR/R6'03"2051988-09-27JR
Comments: After the high-ceiling, potential top-of-the-rotation arms go off the board, teams invariable go to the "safer" advanced college pitchers. Blair should fit into that category. He has average stuff, though his curve has the chance to be a plus pitch, with average command. He knows how to pitch and does a good job using location and deception to his benefit. In all likelihood, he's a middle-to-back of the rotation pitcher, but one who shouldn't take too long to get to the big leagues. There are other higher-profile arms who'll go before him, but Blair should come off the board in the first couple of rounds.
Enhanced Scouting Report
119Chapman, KevinFloridaLHPL/L6'03"2101988-02-19SR
Comments: Chapman had Tommy John surgery, which cost him his 2008 season, but he's emerged as one of the better college relievers in this Draft class. He's been up to 96 mph from the left side and commands his fastball pretty well. While he has an average changeup, his breaking ball is a little bit of a concern to some scouts, though some have seen the slider as better than that. Either way, he could be a quick-to-the-big-leagues short reliever that usually flies off the shelf come Draft time.
118Mummey, TrentAuburnCFL/L5'10"1851989-01-05JR
117Kingham, NicholasSierra Vista HS (NV)RHPR/R6'05"1991-11-08HS
116Cole, A.J.Oviedo HS (FL)RHPR/R6'04"1811992-01-05HS
Comments: With size, projectability and at least two outstanding pitches, Cole is at or near the top of prep pitching lists. His fastball already touches 94 mph, and there's lots of room for growth in his 6-foot-4 frame. He adds a wipeout power slurve to put hitters away and even shows a feel for a changeup. There are some small concerns about his arm action, but his delivery overall is good and he has decent command. James Taillon might be the first high school arm to go off the board, but Cole won't be far behind.
Enhanced Scouting Report
115Roach, DonnCollege of Southern NevadaRHPR/R6'00"1951989-12-14J2
Comments: Roach has undoubtedly taken advantage of all the eyes coming in to see Bryce Harper at College of Southern Nevada. He's shown them a good fastball and a vastly improved curve. He also throws a modified splitter, though he has gotten away from that this season as he's improved his breaking ball. He's very strong with some effort in his delivery, and he doesn't offer much in the way of projection. But even if his ceiling is limited, his three-pitch mix and strong season with so many scouts in attendance will undoubtedly help his Draft stock in June.

114Royse, ThomasLouisvilleRHPR/R6'05"2101988-09-07JR
Comments: As a sophomore in 2009, Thomas earned Second-Team All-Big East honors and was named a Big East Academic All-Star.
113Knecht, MarcusConnors StateLFR/R6'01"2001990-06-21J2
Comments: Knecht was drafted by the Milwaukee Brewers in the 23rd round in 2008 but did not sign. He committed to play at North Carolina State.

111Soto, WendellRiverview HS - Sarasota (FL)SSS/R5'08"1501992-05-11HS
110Coyle, SeanGermantown Academy (PA)SSR/R5'08"1992-01-17HS
Comments: Coyle was a member of USA Baseball's 18-and-under team that won a gold medal at the Pan American Games in Venezuela last fall. He signed to play at the University of North Carolina.
109Landry, LeonLSUCFL/R5'11"1951989-09-20JR
Comments: Landry made a smooth transition from high school infielder to LSU outfielder and now looks like he has the makings of a quality center fielder. He's made changes to his offensive approach and has been more productive this year, with fewer strikeouts and more walks. He has some pop, but power isn't a huge part of his game. He is probably a step below the top college bats in this class, but succeeding at LSU in the SEC will certainly help his Draft stock.
Enhanced Scouting Report
108Rupp, CameronTexasCR/R6'02"2301988-09-28JR
Comments: Since high school, Rupp has received praise for his power at the plate and his arm behind it. As the University of Texas backstop for the past three years, he's played in countless big games and shown an ability to stay behind the plate with perhaps more agility than some expected. He may never hit for a ton of average, but combine the defensive skills with the power potential, and he could be one of the earlier catchers taken in the Draft.
Enhanced Scouting Report
107Rutledge, JoshuaSSR/R6'01"1901989-04-21JR
Comments: College middle infielders are always in high demand but often in short supply. This year is no different, with not much to choose from in terms of elite talent. Fullerton's Christian Colon will likely be the first off the board, but keep your eye on a sleeper like Rutledge. He runs extremely well and has all the tools to actually stay at shortstop. Some question the bat, but it looks like he should be able to hold his own at the plate, as well. College bats tend to rise up boards in the days right before the Draft, and Rutledge might very well be the beneficiary of being in a fairly shallow talent pool in 2010.

103Akins, JordanUnion Grove HS (GA)RFR/R6'03"1921992-04-19HS
Comments: Jordan starred as a two-sport star in baseball and football at Union Grove High School and committed to the University of Central Florida to play both sports.
102Dean, PatBoston CollegeLHPL/L6'02"1989-05-25JR
101Leonard, JoePittsburgh3BR/R6'05"2151988-08-26JR
Comments: The Big East is a good place to look for some talent at the hot corner and Leonard has the chance to be one of the highest-drafted Pitt players in recent memory. He has excellent defensive skills at third and has shown the ability to hit for plenty of average. He hasn't hit for a ton of power in college, but some feel he will develop more as he matures. He's the kind of college hitter who should get taken somewhere in the second to third round.
100Brantly, RobUniversity of California - RiversideCL/R6'02"2051989-07-14SO
Comments: Brantly was selected by the Washington Nationals in the 46th round of the 2008 First-Year Player Draft but did not sign.
99Stanek, RyneBlue Valley HS (KS)RHPR/R6'04"1801991-07-26HS
Comments: Stanek committed to the University of Arkansas.
98Brett, RyanHighline HS (WA)SSS/R5'09"1801991-10-09HS
Comments: Brett has kind of flown under the radar, partially because of his size and perhaps because he plays in the Pacific Northwest. He could be a real steal as a scrappy leadoff type with excellent hitting skills from both sides of the plate. He runs well and can steal bases. While he's okay at shortstop, he could be an above-average defender if he moves over to second. The obvious comparison is with Dustin Pedroia, though Brett is faster and shows a little less pop. Still, he is the type, like the Red Sox star, who could exceed the expectations put upon him because of his size.
Enhanced Scouting Report
97Gibbs, MicahLSUCS/R5'11"2151988-07-27JR
Comments: In a Draft class with a lack of catching talent, Gibbs has picked a good time to break out offensively. He's hit for average and shows some extra-base pop from both sides of the plate, though some continue to question whether he can hit enough to be an everyday bat. Defensively, he's just fine behind the plate, and the combination of skills he's shown this spring have made him one of the better all-around catching options in the class. The University of Miami's Yasmani Grandal looks like he'll be the first backstop to go off the board, but Gibbs might not be too far behind.
Enhanced Scouting Report
96Thornburg, TylerCharleston SouthernRHPR/R5'11"1851988-09-29JR
Comments: As a two-way player, Thornburg hits cleanup while playing right field on Friday, then is the DH on Saturday before taking his turn in the rotation on Sunday. There's a lot to like about him on the mound, with an above-average fastball and changeup. He's going to have to learn to throw his curve for strikes and command the ball better if he wants to remain a starter, but even if that doesn't work out, he could have a very nice future coming out of the 'pen. Scouts are always looking for good games on Sundays, so Thornburg will get plenty of looks before Draft Day.
Enhanced Scouting Report
95Reed, AddisonSan Diego StateRHPL/R6'04"2151988-12-27JR
Comments: Heading into the spring, the thought was that Reed would be one of the more sought-after college relievers in the class, but the San Diego State product was stretched out over the winter in order to be the team's Friday starter. He has performed even better than most could have expected, showing the ability to throw three pitches and adjusting easily to the role. A broken pinky on his pitching hand slowed him down for a few weeks, but presuming he picks up where he left off, Reed is likely a college arm moving up draft boards everywhere.
Enhanced Scouting Report
94Lohman, DevinCal State - Long BeachSSR/R6'02"1901989-04-14JR
93Hawkins, ChristopherNorth Gwinnett HS (GA)SSL/R6'02"1951991-08-17HS
Comments: Hawkins' standout tool is his speed, which grades out as a plus. He has a body that looks the part with some room to add some strength.  A shortstop now, he could move to third in the future or maybe use his speed in the outfield. His setup and swing at the plate is a little unconventional, which might concern some. Right now, it's an approach that should allow him to hit for more average than power.  He has some strength, so if he can adjust his mechanics, there might be more power to come.
92Shipman, AaronBrooks County HS (GA)CFL/L6'00"1741992-01-27HS
Comments: Shipman isn't the most advanced of players, but a team willing to take time and patience could have a pretty good player on its hands. He has a good body with room to fill out and some tools. He's a plus runner, which helps him be an excellent defender in the outfield. He's a wristy hitter, but as he matures and gains more experience, there should be more there.
91Cates, ZackNortheast Texas CCRHPR/R6'03"2001989-12-17J2
90Wates, AustinVirginia TechRFR/R6'01"1988-09-02JR
Comments: Wates is a rare breed: a toolsy college hitter. The Virginia Tech standout's best tool is his speed and he should be a base-stealing threat at the next level. He can swing the bat, too, and projects to hit for more than enough average. What he's not going to do is hit for a ton of power. That, and his lack of a true position -- he's playing first and left field this season -- are the only real knocks against him. He has the skills to play left full-time and could be a future table-setter. Those are always in high demand, so don't expect Wates to last long on Draft day.

87Wolters, TonyRancho Buena Vista HS (CA)SSL/R5'10"1651992-06-09HS
Comments: At the beginning of the 2010 season, Wolters began separating himself from other high school position players. He knows how to handle the bat and the lefty has no difficulties facing southpaws or guys who throw hard. He runs well and has plenty of defensive skills. He's not the biggest guy in the world, but he has some pop in his bat. A team that looks past the size and thinks about the success of guys like Dustin Pedroia will likely be very interested in what Wolters can do.

86Antonio, MichaelGeorge Washington HS (NY)SSR/R6'02"1901991-10-26HS
85Klein, DanielUCLARHPR/R6'03"1901988-07-27JR
Comments: After missing all of 2009 because of shoulder surgery, Klein wasn't really on radar screens. That changed in a hurry as he emerged as one of the better college closers in the country. He can throw four pitches for strikes, leading some to think he should get a chance to start at the next level. Even if that doesn't pan out, teams know they will have a competitive pitcher who can excel in a relief role and move quickly through a system. If teams feel he's fully healthy -- and he appears to be -- that's the type of arm that usually gets drafted fairly early.
Enhanced Scouting Report
84Rojas Jr., MelWabash Valley CollegeCFS/R6'03"2001990-05-24J2
Comments: The son of the former big league reliever of the same name, Rojas is a toolsy, athletic outfielder who has the defensive skills to play a very good center field. He has more speed under way but should also steal some bases. While not projecting to have much power, he does have some hitting ability from both sides of the plate. His bloodlines have helped, but playing at Wabash has made him difficult to evaluate.

83Hague, RickRiceSSR/R6'02"1901988-09-18JR
Comments: Hague was selected to play for the United States National Team last summer. He was selected in the 37th round of the 2007 Draft by the Milwaukee Brewers but did not sign.

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
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.
77Garner, PercyBall StateRHPR/R6'03"2251988-12-13JR
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
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
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
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
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
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.

70Simmons, AndreltonWestern Oklahoma StateSSR/R6'02"1701989-09-04J1
69Sweeney, KellenJefferson HS (IA)3BL/R6'00"1801991-09-14HS
Comments: The brother of A's outfielder Ryan, the younger Sweeney has been on radar screens for a while now. He has very good hitting skills from the left side of the plate, though he doesn't have much power. He runs well, enough and his instincts allow that part of his game to play up. If he can stay at shortstop -- and he does show some ability -- he has that much more value, even at second -- keeping him up the middle -- could be a key. He reportedly had a good workout with the Blue Jays recently, and things like that could shoot him up the charts in a hurry.
Enhanced Scouting Report
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.
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
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
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
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
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.
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
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.
Enhanced Scouting Report
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
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
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
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.

56Bradley, JamesNitro HS (WV)RHPR/R6'04"1851992-06-09HS
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
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
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.
Enhanced Scouting Report
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
51Solis, SammyUniversity of San DiegoLHPR/L6'05"2251988-08-10JR
Comments: College lefties will always get plnety of interest when the Draft rolls around, and Solis might be one of the tougher ones to figure out. He redshirted a year ago due to a herniated disk and back issues will always make some teams nervous. But Solis has a good three-pitch mix -- lively fastball, breaking ball and changeup -- and commands his pitches pretty well. He might not have the highest ceiling in the world, but he also shouldn't take too long to get to the big leagues. If he can prove he's healthy, it's hard to imagine he'll last too long on Draft Day.
Enhanced Scouting Report
50Jenkins, TyrellHenderson HS (TX)RHPR/R6'04"1801992-07-20HS
Comments: A three-sport standout with a football commitment to Baylor, Jenkins might be one of the top pure athletes in the Draft class. He's still a little raw on the mound, though he commands the baseball better than you'd think considering how little he's focused on the craft. He has a very high ceiling to go along with an above-average fastball, a breaking ball that's solid, and even a feel for a changeup. The upside plus the athleticsm will likely get him selected by a team that thinks it can sign him away from heading to college.
Enhanced Scouting Report
49Olt, MikeConnecticut3BR/R6'02"2151988-08-27JR
Comments: In a relatively thin year for college hitters, Olt stands out as one of the better options ... especially if a team is looking for power potential. Olt has plenty of pop, largely from the pull side. There's been some question about his abilities as an overall hitter, but he has a solid approach and good bat speed. A converted shortstop, he's worked hard with his move to third and should be able to stay there. With injuries that shortened his sophomore season behind him, Olt profiles as a solid power-hitting third baseman at the big league level and everyone knows how hard they are to find.
Enhanced Scouting Report
48Ruffin, ChanceTexasRHPR/R6'00"1851988-09-08JR
Comments: He's started and he's relieved for Texas and it seems like the latter is the better role for Ruffin. His stuff won't blow you away outside of a pretty live fastball, but he has the right mentality and makeup to make his stuff play up. He's also got Major League bloodlines as the son of former big leaguer Bruce Ruffin, and that invariably helps, as does pitching in big spots over the course of his college career. He may not close at the next level, but he could be a setup type who moves quickly through a system.
Enhanced Scouting Report
47Tago, PeterDana Hills HS (CA)RHPR/R6'03"1801992-07-05HS
Comments: Tago may not be the biggest high school arm in this Draft class, but he has one of the more electric fastballs. He can touch the mid-90s with plenty of life with it. His curve shows flashes, but it's behind the fastball. His command needs improvement as well. It's all about arm strength for Tago, and he has plenty of it. The team who feels they can build off that and refine his other pitches will be the one to take him fairly early.
Enhanced Scouting Report
46Blair, SethArizona StateRHPR/R6'02"1951989-03-03JR
Comments: Blair opened up many eyes with his first start of the year, when he threw harder than he had previously and all of his stuff, while inconsistent, was electric. He dialed it back after that, but still showed glimpses of having three, maybe more, above-average to plus offerings. Command issues have led to high pitch counts, which in turn make some think he's destined for a job as a reliever, though a team may at least give him a chance to show he can't start with that full repertoire. The glimpses he's shown could very well be enough to get him off the board on Day 1 of the Draft.
Enhanced Scouting Report
45Jackson, LukeCalvary Christian Academy (FL)RHPR/R6'02"1801991-08-24HS
Comments: Jackson committed to play at the University of Miami.
44Castellanos, NickArchbishop McCarthy HS (FL)3BR/R6'04"1951992-03-04HS
Comments: With an athletic frame that looks like it has room for some added strength, Castellanos has become one of the more talked about high school bats in the class. Whether he's worthy of that kind of high consideration remains to be seen, but he does swing a pretty good bat and shows decent raw power. The question is if he'll be able to translate that to in-game pop down the line. That becomes more important considering that most feel he'll move to third base at the next level, where run production is often a requirement. The team that feels he will indeed reach that potential is likely to take him off the board early on.
Enhanced Scouting Report
43Walker, TaijuanYucaipa HS (CA)RHPR/R6'04"1951992-08-13HS
Comments: Walker has been a little bit of an enigma this spring after a very strong summer and fall in 2009. He'll show glimpses of the electric stuff that created a buzz back then, but he's struggled a bit to find a level of consistency. He can still crank up the heat on his fastball, but the breaking ball that looked so promising has largely deserted him. An inconsistent delivery has affected his command, though he still will show the ability to dominate. Depending on when a team saw him might impact his Draft status, though someone is likely to take a chance on his raw stuff, athletic ability and projectable frame.
Enhanced Scouting Report
42Vettleson, DrewCentral Kitsap School (WA)RFL/R6'00"1851991-07-19HS
Comments: Vettleson is one of the more interesting prospects in this class because not only is he a two-way player, but he's also a switch-pitcher. He throws 93 from the right side and up to 88 from the left. Some might see him as a pitcher, but most agree his more likely future is as an outfielder. That arm strength will work well as a right fielder, and he has the kind of outstanding batting skills that make you think he's a .300 hitter in the making. How much power he'll have is up for debate, but he should have at least some, with his knack for making consistent hard contact from the left side. Josh Sale is the prep bat most talk about in the Pacific Northwest, but Vettleson shouldn't be too far behind him when the Draft comes along.
Enhanced Scouting Report
41Wojciechowski, AsherThe CitadelRHPR/R6'04"2351988-12-21JR
Comments: Wojciechowski is a big, strong right-hander with plenty of arm strength. He has plenty of fastball and an improved slider to go along with it. He's durable enough to start, but the concern is that his command isn't where it needs to be to fit into a rotation long-term. The good news is he could gain a few ticks on that fastball in a short relief role. A team might give him every opportunity to start, but he could be the type of college arm that shoots through a system and one day sets up or closes at the big league level.
Enhanced Scouting Report
40Bolden, RyanMadison Central HS (MS)CFR/L6'02"1951991-09-17HS
39Ranaudo, AnthonyLSURHPR/R6'07"2311989-09-09JR
Comments: Entering the spring as perhaps the top college arm in the country, Ranaudo missed a chunk of time with an elbow issue. Brought back slowly, he has struggled to regain the form that made him such an elite prospect in the first place. More than anything, he's struggled to find a feel for the strike zone, and for keeping the ball down in it like he had in the past. How he finishes his season will go a long way toward determing his Draft stock, but the injury, together with being advised by Scott Boras, make him very difficult to place.
Enhanced Scouting Report
38Syndergaard, NoahLegacy HS (TX)RHPL/R6'05"2001992-08-29HS
37Lindsey, TaylorDesert Mountain HS (AZ)SSL/R6'00"1951991-12-02HS
Comments: As a junior in 2009, Lindsey was named First-Team All-State and First-Team All-Region where he was also the Regional Player of the Year.
36Brentz, BryceMiddle Tennessee StateLFR/R6'00"1901988-12-30JR
Comments: A year after having one of the best offensive seasons in college baseball, Brentz entered his Draft year as one of the top pure college hitters. He's done nothing to alter that impression. He has a short, compact stroke and plenty of power to all fields. A two-way player in the past, the arm that worked well for him on the mound is more than enough from the outfield. He could be one of the top college bats to come off the board.
Enhanced Scouting Report
35Lipka, MatthewMcKinney HS (TX)SSR/R6'01"1901992-04-15HS
Comments: Lipka lLipka has a strong, athletic body with strength and quickness in his swing. While he has the range and agility to play the middle infield, his hands and actions might mean a move to center field would make more sense, where most feel he'd develop just fine. He does have a tendency to pull off pitches and cuts off his swing, but they are correctable flaws which should allow him to be a pretty good hitter. He runs very well -- he was an all-state wide receiver for fellow Draft prospect (and QB) Zach Lee -- but is expected to focus on baseball.ed McKinney to three straight District 4-A titles in his first three seasons. He committed to play at the University of Alabama.
34Sanchez, AaronBarstow HS (CA)RHPR/R6'04"1901992-07-01HS
Comments: While not consideed to be at the top of the high school pitching crop, Sanchez is one of those tall, projectable right-handers that do get some attention. He already has plenty of fastball and as he continues to fill out his frame, there's likely to be more there. He has a curve ball that's average now and has shown some feel for a changeup. With command issues the biggest problem, he's not very polished, but there's bound to be a team that sees the size and arm strength and be willing to take a chance.
Enhanced Scouting Report
33Kvasnicka, MichaelMinnesotaCS/R6'02"2001988-12-07JR
Comments: Kvasnicka was once a vaguely interesting college outfielder. A move behind the plate, however, has made him much more intriguing. His defensive ability is still quite raw, but his athleticism and above-average arm strength give him a chance. He hasn't hit with much power this year but has shown a good approach at the plate. A switch-hitting catcher who can hit and catch is a hot commodity, and that's why Kvasnicka's stock was rising as the Draft approached.
Enhanced Scouting Report
32Culver, CitoIrondequoit HS (NY)SSS/R6'00"1992-08-26HS
Comments: Culver is a switch-hitter who's better from the left side of the plate, showing more bat speed from that side. He has some gap-to-gap power right now. He looks like he should have above-average speed, but his run times haven't been great and he's better underway. At times, scouts have questions his effort level on the field, though they don't question his natural gifts. He has the tools, especially his arm strength, to perhaps stay at shortstop, though a move to center field could make some sense. He has a Maryland commitment, but there was some buzz that he'd be willing to forego that for the right price.
31O'Conner, JustinCowan HS (IN)CR/R6'00"1901992-03-31HS
Comments: After hitting the summer showcase circuit, O'Conner is one of the best-known high school players in the Midwest. He has serious tools, most notably an ability hit for average, plenty of power, and a plus throwing arm. He has the athleticism to play shortstop, though his range may dictate a move. Behind the plate, he could be a very intriguing, yet raw, prospect. There are some teams who like his arm strength from the mound, though most see his future as a position player. Don't be surprised if a team takes his bat pretty early, puts him behind the plate and lets him develop at whatever pace he needs.
Enhanced Scouting Report
30Clarke, ChevyMarietta HS (GA)CFS/R5'11"1851992-01-09HS
Comments: Depending on when someone saw him, Clarke has been a top-10 pick or a fading prospect. He has all the tools you'd want, highlighted by his outstanding speed. He tries to muscle up a little too much, and, while he has the potential to be a plus center fielder, he'll need to refine his defensive skills. He has the chance to be a very exciting game-changing type of player, and the team that wants to bet on that upside will be the one that takes him fairly early.
Enhanced Scouting Report
29Bedrosian, CamEast Coweta HS (GA)RHPR/R6'00"2041991-10-02HS
Comments: Bedrosian has two things working for him in terms of his Draft status: outstanding stuff and Major League bloodlines. His dad, Steve, pitched for 14 years in the big leagues. His son is smaller -- something that could adversely affect him -- but his stuff is plenty big, with a mid-90s fastball and plus slider. That's enough for him to follow in dad's footsteps as a short reliever, but Bedrosian's changeup is on the come, and he has a good feel for pitching. If teams can look past the undersized right-hander bias, the younger Bedrock should hear his name called relatively early in the Draft.
Enhanced Scouting Report
28Lee, ZachMcKinney HS (TX)RHPR/R6'03"1951991-09-13HS
Comments: With above-average to plus stuff across the board -- fastball, slider, changeup -- good command and tremendous athleticsm, Lee should be one of the high school arms being mentioned up close to the top of the Draft, or at least on a short list of top high school arms. If he's not, it's largely because of one thing: signability. As a quarterback recruit, he's committed to play two sports at LSU next year, and many think he's unsignable as a result. That said, there's bound to be a team with deep pockets that will take a shot at luring him away from the gridiron and life as a collegiate athlete.
Enhanced Scouting Report
27Biddle, JesseGermantown Friends School (PA)LHPL/L6'04"1991-10-22HS
Comments: Projectable, high school left-handers aren't always easy to find, and Biddle, while a bit raw, might be an interesting one for teams to consider. He has the size (6-foot-6) and strength you like to see, and he's throwing his fastball up to 92 mph, with room for growth in that area. He combines that with an outstanding changeup, though his breaking ball is behind the other two offerings. His command and issues with his delivery might keep him from being one of the elite prep arms in the class, but a team that's willing to work with him and be patient could be very handsomely rewarded should they select him during the Draft.
Enhanced Scouting Report
26Parker, KyleClemsonRFR/R6'00"1989-09-30JR
Comments: Parker has the chance to be a 20-20 athlete this college year: 20 home runs this spring following the 20 touchdown passes he threw for the Clemson football team last fall. He's an elite athlete who has really put things together at the plate this year, hitting for average and power. He has the arm for right field, though he'll have to improve his routes and reads in the outfield. He doesn't have a long track record of success at the plate, so a team taking him will have to believe that this is the real Parker, not the one who hit .255 last season. That team will also have to think it can sign Parker -- whose dad played in the NFL -- away from his remaining years of football eligibility.
