11Smoak, JustinU South Carolina Columbia1BS/L6'04"2201986-12-05JR400K
Comments: There are a number of top-notch college first basemen in this year's class and Smoak is right at the top of the list. That's because he's got a smooth and easy swing that generates plenty of power from both sides of the plate. This isn't college power; it will translate just fine to the pro game. He can't run and is limited to first base defensively, but there will be more than enough bat to make up for those shortcomings.

57Ross, RobertLexington Christian Academy (KY)LHPL/L5'11"1851989-06-24HS400K
Comments: Ross is a very intriguing high school lefty who is considered to be one of the better prep southpaws in the Draft class. With a fastball that's plus at times, the possibility of two decent secondary offerings, good command and outstanding competitiveness, he's the type of pitcher who always gets more out of his stuff than others might. He may not have a ton of projection, but he's already pretty good.

89Murphy, TimothyUC Los AngelesLHPL/L6'02"2051987-05-07JR400K
Comments: College lefties are always of interest come Draft time and this Draft class does not have a ton to offer. Murphy offers up a four-pitch repertoire that he mixes well to keep hitters guessing. His stuff isn't off the charts, but he has a good idea of how to pitch and is a battler on the mound. If he can clean up some mechanical problems, he can become a durable strike-throwing starter at the next level.

123Wieland, JosephBishop Manogue HS (NV)RHPR/R6'03"1990-01-21HS400K
Comments: While he doesn't belong in the discussion of elite pitchers in this Draft class, Wieland does have some pretty good pitchability. Not too many high schoolers can throw their breaking ball for strikes at will, but count Wieland among the few. With the ability to command his fastball and a feel for a change, the wiry right-hander is the kind of high schooler who could move fairly well through a system and emerge as a back-of-the-rotation type in the future.

303Castner, KevinCal Poly San Luis ObispoRHPR/R6'04"2301987-08-03JR400K
Comments: Big, intimidating and armed with a power arsenal, he's got the raw tools to be a short reliever some day. He'll need quite a bit of polish as he doesn't have a ton of experience on the mound. His delivery has been bad in the past and while it's been refined, he had some trouble maintaining it throughout an outing. But this kind of arm strength, in that kind of body, doesn't grow on trees, so he's bound to garner some interest.

573Martinez, HaroldBraddock HS (FL)SSR/R6'03"1901990-05-03HS400K
Comments: Martinez certainly looks the part of a future pro player with a good, athletic baseball body. He entered the season with plenty of expectations and hasn't lived up to them as performance hasn't met what many thought his potential will be. Someone dreaming about his projections will likely take a chance on him, but the question is whether it will be early enough to keep him from going to Miami.
