24Hewitt, AnthonySalisbury School (NY)SSR/R6'01"1951989-04-27HS400K
Comments: As the spring wore on, few players had more helium than Hewitt, a toolsy high school shortstop. He can run and should hit for power down the road. A terrific athlete with a good arm, most feel a move to the outfield is likely so he can just go out and develop his considerable offensive tools. As a Northeast kid, he's a little raw, but has shown good improvement this spring. His name had been climbing up charts everywhere and the only thing that could hold him back is signability due to a commitment to Vanderbilt.

34Collier, ZacharyChino Hills HS (CA)LFL/L6'02"1851990-09-08HS400K
Comments: Collier began the year behind other California high school outfielders like Aaron Hicks and Anthony Gose. He closed the gap with some strong performances this spring, showing some big-time power in some big games. He's still very raw, but with some more instruction, a whole lot could be unlocked.

51Gose, AnthonyBellflower HS (CA)OFL/L6'01"1901990-08-10HS400K
Comments: Depending on how he develops, Gose could fit one of two types. He could be a Corey Patterson type, one who flashes brilliance and hits for power but strikes out a lot. He also could be a Juan Pierre type, a leadoff hitter who sprays line drives and steals bases. Either way, someone will draft the Urban Youth Academy product based on his projectability. Gose has also drawn plenty of interest for his ability on the mound, throwing as hard as 97 mph from the left side, but he's been fairly adamant about wanting to be considered an outfielder only.

196Shreve, ColbyCol of Southern NevadaRHPR/R6'05"2101988-01-05J2400K
Comments: A seventh-round pick a year ago by the Atlanta Braves, he looks to improve his Draft standing as one of the better JUCO pitchers in the country. He's added some velocity, up to 96 mph, and while he's still a work in progress, there's plenty to work with in terms of arm strength and size.

286Overbeck, CodyU Mississippi3BR/R6'01"2011986-06-05SR400K
Comments: Examine Overbeck tool-by-tool and you might not be all that impressed, but the whole is definitely greater than the sum of its parts. He can swing the bat -- with some power -- and that's the skill that could carry him to the big leagues. Defensively, he may be the type who moves around a bit, some at third, some at first, but he could develop into a Kevin Millar type in the future.
