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
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.
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
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
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.
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
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.
38Syndergaard, NoahLegacy HS (TX)RHPL/R6'05"2001992-08-29HS
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
40Bolden, RyanMadison Central HS (MS)CFR/L6'02"1951991-09-17HS
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
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
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
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
45Jackson, LukeCalvary Christian Academy (FL)RHPR/R6'02"1801991-08-24HS
Comments: Jackson committed to play at the University of Miami.
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
56Bradley, JamesNitro HS (WV)RHPR/R6'04"1851992-06-09HS
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
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
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
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.
