66Raben, DennisU MiamiRFL/L6'03"2201987-07-31JR400K
Comments: After an All-Star campaign in the Cape, scouts were eager to see what Raben would do for an encore, especially since the outfield group this spring is relatively weak. Unfortunately, he's been disappointing since coming off a back issue. He's got a long swing and takes too many pitches, often hitting in negative counts. His raw power from the left side will still get him drafted fairly early, but maybe not quite as soon as it once seemed.

67Satterwhite, CodyU MississippiRHPR/R6'04"2051987-01-27JR400K
Comments: Originally the Ole Miss Saturday starter, Satterwhite got bumped to Sundays because of his uneven performance. Scouts still love his body and his arm strength, but he's gotten hit much more than you'd think he should based on his electric stuff. The issues largely come from inconsistencies in his delivery and despite the subpar season, a team that feels it can tweak his mechanics is still likely to draft the right-hander fairly early.

69Darnell, JamesU South Carolina Columbia3BR/R6'02"1987-01-19JR400K
Comments: Not as much a pure hitter as his South Carolina teammates Justin Smoak and Reese Havens, Darnell still makes solid contact and has some line-drive power, particularly to the pull side. The Cape League All-Star is strong, but not very agile defensively. That could force a move to a corner-outfield position in the future. How much people think he can develop his raw power may determine how quickly he gets drafted.

70Spruill, EzekielKell HS (GA)RHPS/R6'04"1841989-09-11HS400K
Comments: The very definition of a projectable high school right-hander, Spruill has the size and flashes the pitches to be an intriguing prospect. His fastball runs up to 94 mph, though he doesn't always maintain it. He's got a smooth delivery, but a long arm sweep is an issue. There's a lot to work with here, and a team that likes projectable arms won't hesitate to take him.

74Chatwood, TylerRedlands East Valley HS (CA)RHPR/R5'11"1751989-12-16HS400K
Comments: Chatwood is an intriguing athlete and pitcher. Some see him on the mound and some see him as a super-utility type. He does have command of two good pitches, though his size could keep some from being too interested. How he progresses on the mound could determine when he gets drafted.

75Bittle, JosephU MississippiRHPR/R6'01"1901986-08-27SR400K
76Haley, CurtisCentral Heights HS (TX)RHPR/R6'03"1801990-06-21HS400K
Comments: It's not a good year for talent in the usually loaded state of Texas, but there always has to be at least a few intriguing prep arms. Haley may be the best of the lot with a projectable frame, a good delivery and two outstanding pitches he commands well. He's another East Texas kid in the Clay Buchholz mold, and if he can prove people he's not just good because of the lack of competition -- something he's done all spring -- he should give the state of Texas some pride on Draft day.

78Jefferies, JacobUC DavisCL/R6'02"2001987-10-30JR400K
Comments: Not on the map to start the season, Jefferies has had a tremendous junior campaign and has been steadily moving up the ladder all year. A terrific contact hitter who almost never strikes out, he hasn't shown much power. Defensively, he's pretty good, though the arm is fringy. Whichever team sees more arm or more power in the future will likely be the one to take him.

80Sample, TylerJ K Mullen Prep School (CO)RHPR/R6'07"1989-06-27HS400K
Comments: If you're looking for a big right-hander with power stuff, Sample might be your guy. He's got a fastball that cranks up to 95 mph and a hammer curve. He doesn't use the change much, but it should be a pitch for him in the future. He's never going to be an above-average command guy, but he should throw enough strikes to be successful. He might be a bit of a project, but at 6-foot-7 with that kind of stuff, someone will be willing to try and see it through.

81Hoes, JeromeSt Johns HS (MD)2BR/R6'01"1990-03-05HS400K
82Kieschnick, RogerTexas Tech URFL/R6'03"2151987-01-21JR400K
Comments: Kieschnick is a potential five-tool corner outfielder who could hit for power and steal a few bases. He plays a fearless outfield, getting to plenty of balls and showing off a good arm at times. The one knock is an issue with his mechanics at the plate that concerns some about his hitting ability at the next level. Still, an aggressive college outfielder -- in a weak class of outfielders -- who has those tools should get plenty of interest.

84Stewart, ZacharyTexas Tech URHPR/R6'02"2051986-09-28JR400K
Comments: College closers have become all the rage lately, with some getting drafted early every year. Stewart could be in that group in 2008. The Texas Tech reliever relies on a plus fastball and slider and commands both power offerings well. He's got the kind of makeup you want in a short reliever, a guy who is very aggressive and goes right after hitters. The stuff plus the mentality could push Stewart into early-round consideration.

87Espinosa, DanielCal St Long BeachSSS/R6'00"1901987-04-25JR400K
Comments: Yes, it's another shortstop courtesy of Long Beach State. This one doesn't have quite the offensive skill set that his predecessors had, but he can handle the bat a little bit. Defensively, he's got outstanding instincts and a plus arm. He may not go as high as Crosby, Tulo and Longoria did, but he's sure to garner plenty of interest.
Enhanced Scouting Report
88Davidson, CharlesMilton HS (GA)OFL/R6'05"2221990-01-14HS400K
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.
Enhanced Scouting Report
90Paramore, PrestonArizona St UCS/R6'02"2051986-10-30JR400K
Comments: These numbers may sum him up: In his first two seasons, he committed four total errors and walked 17 times more than he struck out. While he has a good game plan and handles the bat fine, particularly from the right side, it's his all-around defensive acumen that should interest scouts the most.
