1Harper, BryceCollege of Southern NevadaOFL/R6'03"2051992-10-16J1
Comments: The Bryce Harper story is well-documented at this point. Just 17 and in junior college, he's gotten as much hype as any Draft prospect not named Strasburg. For the most part, he's lived up to it in his first college season, showing incredible hitting and power skills. He's moved around on the field and has plus arm strength from anywhere, though most would like to see him catch. The only questions that seem to remain with Harper is if he'll go No. 1 overall and then, if he'll sign.

2Taillon, JamesonThe Woodlands HS (TX)RHPR/R6'06"2251991-11-18HS
Comments: Taillon is the complete package in a high school pitcher, with tremendous size, stuff and a feel for pitching. He has three plus pitches in his fastball, slider and curve. Even his changeup, while not used that much, is solid. He uses his size to his advantage and has tremendous mound presence. As impressive as his stuff is, his makeup might be even better. A commitment to Rice might sound intriguing, but if he goes at the top of the first round, and everything points to that happening, it likely won't be an issue.
Enhanced Scouting Report
3Machado, MannyBrito Miami Private School (FL)SSR/R6'03"1851992-07-06HS
Comments: Machado entered the season as the top high school position player and has done nothing to diminish that evaluation. Big and athletic, he can do just about everything on the baseball field, with the ability to hit for plenty of average and some power as he matures. He has more than enough arm to play shortstop and is fine there for now, though there is some concern he'll outgrow the position. Even if he does, he'd be just fine at third, both in terms of handling the position defensively and providing the kind of offense teams look for at the hot corner. Regardless of his position, Machado is primed to be one of the earliest names taken off the board in June.
Enhanced Scouting Report
4Colon, ChristianCal State - FullertonSSR/R6'00"1901989-05-14JR
Comments: A big prospect since high school, there's a lot to like about Colon's game. He has a solid approach and setup at the plate and he makes the plays in the field. His individual tools don't grade out well, and some think he'll need to move to second as a pro. He was the captain of Team USA last summer and put up big numbers as well. He hadn't done that in the early going of his junior season and this is a performance-based industry, so that could hurt his draft stock a little. Even if he doesn't pick it up, his past performance, makeup and baseball acumen should help ensure he doesn't wait too long to hear his name called.
Enhanced Scouting Report
5Pomeranz, DrewOle MissLHPR/L6'05"2351988-11-22JR
Comments: Pomeranz has established himself as the top lefty arm in a Draft class that hasn't got a deep the southpaw pool. Big, strong and durable, he has the makings of an above-average three-pitch mix. He commands his fastball and breaking ball very well, and, while the changeup is a bit behind, it's improving quickly. There's little not to like about Pomeranz -- most criticisms are on the nit-picky side -- and it seems likely that he'll hear his name called very early on Draft Day.
Enhanced Scouting Report
6Loux, BarretTexas A&MRHPR/R6'05"2251989-04-06JR
Comments: With his performances this spring, Loux is quickly moving up draft charts. The big right-hander has four pitches he uses, though it's his fastball and plus changeup that really stand out. His breaking stuff needs some tightening, but with his command, mound presence and easy delivery, there's reason to believe he can improve that part of his game as well. Before the season began, most Texas college pitching buzz went to Brandon Workman, but Loux has forced his way to the top of that conversation and likely into the first couple of rounds.
Enhanced Scouting Report
7Harvey, MattNorth CarolinaRHPR/R6'04"2251989-03-27JR
Comments: Once a top high school prospect, Harvey has reclaimed his status as a first-round candidate with a resurgent junior season. The delivery problems that had him so off his game as a sophomore have largely been corrected, though there are still some issues there that can effect his command and ability to throw his breaking ball. Still, Harvey was showing an above-average to plus fastball and maintaining his velocity, to go along with glimpses of good breaking stuff and a feel for a change. He's come a long way this season, and he likely won't have to wait too long to be redrafted.
Enhanced Scouting Report
8Deshields Jr., DelinoWoodward Academy (GA)CFR/R5'09"1881992-08-16HS
Comments: DeShields has two things really working in his favor: his plus speed and his bloodlines. His dad of the same name spent many years in the big leagues, and the hope is that the younger DeShields could be a similar type of player. He does have the potential to be a very good hitter and puts his speed to use on the basepaths. He has more than enough range to handle center field and the hands to play second if a team wanted to give that a look. Scouts have had a hard time getting a consistent read on DeShields. He's toolsy and seems like he'll fall right into the old risk vs. reward debate. It seems likely a team will be willing to take the plunge at some point not too deep into the Draft.
Enhanced Scouting Report
9Whitson, KarstenChipley HS (FL)RHPR/R6'03"1951991-08-25HS
Comments: It's looking like a pretty strong year for high school arms, and Whitson should be near the top in any discussion about them. He's already big, strong and durable and he has plenty of projection, meaning he might throw harder than his already mid-90s fastball. Add in a plus breaking ball and good changeup and he has a very intriguring three-pitch mix already. Some tweaks to his delivery could make him even more dangerous. There might be a right-hander or two ahead of Whitson on the high school depth chart, but he should figure into high Draft pick conversations come June.
Enhanced Scouting Report
10Choice, MichaelUniversity of Texas - ArlingtonCFR/R6'00"2151989-11-10JR
Comments: In a year that lacks a ton of big-name college hitters, players from smaller programs like Choice have a chance to shine, and he is taking advantage. Though he'll need work on his swing mechanics, he has big-time raw power to all fields. He runs well and plays a strong outfield to boot. He may not be the elite hitter clubs seek, but since there aren't many of those this year, teams may look hard at Choice in the early going.
Enhanced Scouting Report
11McGuire, DeckGeorgia TechRHPR/R6'06"2201989-06-23JR
Comments: McGuire may not have the highest ceiling of the pitchers in this draft class -- he profiles as a No. 3 type starter -- but he might be the safest college arm to choose from. He has a good three-pitch mix and excellent command that comes in a big, durable body. He's always been successful and has shown the ability to compete and win even without his best stuff. While he's not an ace in the making some teams might look for, he should be the type of advanced arm that can get to the big leagues in a hurry and be a very important innings-eater in the middle of a rotation. That might not be sexy, but it's likely to get McGuire drafted early on Draft Day.
Enhanced Scouting Report
12Grandal, YasmaniMiamiCS/R6'02"2051988-11-08JR
Comments: Grandal has been on radars since high school, when he opted for the University of Miami rather than the Red Sox. He's come through with his best offensive season at the right time, with consistent production at the plate moving him up Draft boards in a hurry. He's a switch-hitter with some pop, but some worry about his ability as an overall hitter. Defensively, he has a good reputation, but he does need work on things like his footwork. With college catchers always in high demand, Grandal's numbers this spring could very well result in him being the first catcher off the board in the first round.
Enhanced Scouting Report
13Sale, ChrisFlorida Gulf Coast UniversityLHPL/L6'06"1721989-03-30JR
Comments: Sometimes good things come out of smaller schools. Sale took a strong Cape Cod League performance and carried it over into his junior season. With the chance to have three outstanding pitches, all of which he can throw for strikes, to go along with outstanding mound presence, Sale has developed into one of the better lefties in the Draft class. Teams will have to look past a less than prototypical arm slot for a starting pitcher, but with the way he's pitched, it seems likely a team will do that at some point in the first round.
Enhanced Scouting Report
14Covey, DylanMaranatha HS (CA)RHPR/R6'02"1951991-08-14HS
Comments: Covey entered the 2010 Draft season as one of the top prep arms in the class and his first showing at the UYA showcase did nothing to hurt his standing. He'd shown more fastball in the past, but no one doubted that would be there once the spring got going. His plus curve was working well, and he even showed the changeup a bit. It was a good start for Covey, who could very well be one of the top high school pitchers taken on Draft Day.
Enhanced Scouting Report
15Skole, JakeBlessed Trinity HS (GA)CFL/R6'01"1992-01-17HS
Comments: No one had more helium as the Draft approached than Skole, even though the Georgia high school product missed most of the season with an ankle injury.  He did come back late for a two-week look and performed well. He has five-tool potential and has drawn some comparisons to Grady Sizemore and Johnny Damon, though he's more of a front-foot slap hitter right now. The two-sport star has a commitment to Georgia Tech to play football and baseball, where he'd get to play with his brother, Matt, for a year, so signability could be an issue. It wasn't however, keeping his name from entering first-round conversations.
16Simpson, HaydenSouthern Arkansas UniversityRHPR/R6'00"1751989-05-20JR
17Sale, JoshBishop Blanchet HS (WA)RFL/R6'00"2151991-07-05HS
Comments: After performing well on the national showcase scene, Sale had positioned himself to be one of the better high school bats in this Draft class. He's done nothing this spring to hurt his stock. He has as much power as anyone in the class, though there is mild concern about his ability to make enough contact to tap into that power. Sale is a tireless worker who has improved his arm to the point where he now looks like he could fit the mold of the prototypical, power-hitting right fielder. His offensive potential looks like it could get him off the board in the opeing round.
Enhanced Scouting Report
18Cowart, KalebCook HS (GA)RHPS/R6'03"1901992-06-02HS
Comments: There are two-way players in every Draft class. Typically, it's fairly obvious which way they'll go as professionals. With Cowart, however, there will be some debate. He prefers to be a hitter right now. More scouts are showing up to see him pitch, which might be an indication that teams are leaning in that direction, though there are sure to be scouts who like him both as power-hitting third baseman and a power-throwing right-hander. How this unfolds and who wins the debate could be one of the more interesting developments of the Draft season.
Enhanced Scouting Report
19Foltynewicz, MikeMinooka Community HS (IL)RHPR/R6'04"1991-10-07HS
Comments: Two years ago, fellow Illinois prep product Jake Odorizzi raced up Draft boards late and ended up going in the supplemental first round. Foltynewicz is more of a known quantity and could do quite well when the Draft comes around. That's because of his plus fastball with plus movement, a good changeup and clean mechanics. The breaking ball needs some work but should be fine with more instruction. While it's typically been the prep arms from the warm-weather areas who go first, Foltynewicz is positioning himself to be one of the first from the Midwest to go off the board.
Enhanced Scouting Report
20Vitek, KolbrinBall State2BR/R6'02"1951989-04-01JR
Comments: Wherever Vitek has gone, he's hit. He plays at a smaller program, but in a year with a lack of premium bats at big programs, his production is getting noticed. His bat speed and mechanics should make him an excellent hitter at the next level. He has power, though there's some debate how much there will be at the next level. He also runs pretty well. The main question with Vitek is where he'll play defensively, as his current home at second doesn't appear to be a great fit. He's athletic enough to play the outfield, and that might be the best bet. Wherever he plays, it's his bat that has people interested, and that's what will get him drafted in the first couple of rounds.
Enhanced Scouting Report
21Wimmers, AlexOhio StateRHPL/R6'02"1951988-11-01JR
Comments: Wimmers is setting himself up to be one of the safer college arm picks in the 2010 Draft. He has three pitches he can throw for strikes and he shows tremendous poise on the mound as Ohio State's Friday starter. While his raw stuff won't jump out at you and he might profile as a middle- to back-of-the-rotation pitcher, he's also the type whose sum is greater than each of his parts. Wimmers should shoot through the Minors and could be big league-ready by 2012, meaning he probably will not last very long on the first day of the Draft.
Enhanced Scouting Report
22Deglan, KellinR.E. Mountain SSCL/R6'02"1951992-05-03HS
Comments: Every year, there tends to be at least a couple of intriguing players to come out of Canada. Deglan's got the chance to be at or near the top. He has a good idea at the plate and behind it, with good overall hitting skills and future power projection. He has a good arm and is surprisingly athletic and agile. He'll need to make sure he doesn't get too thick or soft with his big frame. Left-handed-hitting catchers who actually can stay behind the plate tend to be a hot commodity, so expect Deglin's name to come up in early-round consideration.
Enhanced Scouting Report
23Yelich, ChristianWestlake HS (CA)1BL/R6'04"1851991-12-05HS
Comments: Yelich is the type of high school bat that could rise very quickly on draft boards as the spring unfolds. He has a sweet left-handed stroke and as he fills into his tall, athletic frame, he should hit for more power. He runs well and could even handle an outfield spot, though his below-average arm might limit him somewhat. Kind of an under-the-radar guy when the season began, strong performances and physical maturity will make many teams take a closer look at his bat and his ceiling.
Enhanced Scouting Report
24Brown, GaryCal State - FullertonCFR/R6'01"1901988-09-28JR
Comments: There may not have been another hitter in the 2010 Draft class who got off to a hotter start than Brown. Speed is his best tool, and he can wreak havoc on the basepaths. He has more strength and power than it would seem, and while his approach is unorthodox, he has good overall hitting skills. Relatively new to the outfield, he's come a long way in terms of his defensive skills in center. Pure speed guys who can hit don't grow on trees, and if Brown keeps hitting the way he started out the year, he's going to hear his name called sooner rather than later on Draft Day.
Enhanced Scouting Report
25Cox, ZackArkansas3BL/R6'00"2151989-05-09SO
Comments: A Draft prospect two years ago, Cox is back as a Draft-eligible sophomore. His best tool is his bat, and he should hit for plenty of average with at least decent power. His plus arm plays just fine at third, but his overall defense at the hot corner likely won't work at the next level. Arkansas has been mixing him in at second and that might prove to be a better spot for the left-handed hitter. Regardless of the position, the bat should be enough to get him off the board sooner rather than later.
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.
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
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
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
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.
