61Murphy, GriffinRedlands East Valley HS (CA)LHPR/L6'03"2001991-01-16HS
Comments: Murphy began to separate himself among high school lefties with his performance at the Urban Youth Academy Showcase in February. His fastball velocity was up, his curve ball was tighter and he showed some good action with his changeup. His stuff was even more effective with the improved command that was on display. The southpaw is tall, strong and athletic. His stock went way up at the UYA Showcase and will continue to climb if he keeps throwing like he did in Compton.

62LaMarre, RyanMichiganCFR/L6'02"1988-11-21JR
Comments: LaMarre's name was shooting up Draft boards when he showed he was fully recovered from an early thumb injury. He can swing the bat and has made some nice adjustments following a rough summer on the Cape. He runs well, though isn't a burner, and plays good defense. While he might be a tweener -- not enough speed for center, not enough power for a corner -- his overall skill set and baseball know-how had his name being mentioned in first-round conversations.
Enhanced Scouting Report
63Petricka, JacobIndiana StateRHPR/R6'04"1901988-06-05SR
Comments: This tall right-hander was creating a lot of buzz later in the spring when reports of him touching 98 mph spread like wildfire. His secondary stuff isn't as good as the heater, though his curve ball has improved this year and his changeup has a chance to be a decent offering. There's not a ton of life in the fastball, but he throws without much effort. People were pouring in to see him late, and that kind of arm strength tends to do very well in the Draft.
64Nelson, JamesAlabamaRHPR/R6'06"2401989-06-05JR
Comments: There will invariably be a number of college arms taken at or near the top of the Draft. Once you get past that top tier, there are always steals to be found. Nelson could very well fit into that group as Alabama's Saturday starter. He has three pitches, with the fastball and slider being his best two options. If he can develop his changeup, he could be a very good starting option for a team that's seeking some advanced pitching after that first group.
Enhanced Scouting Report
65Golden, ReggieWetumpka HS (AL)CFR/R5'10"2101991-10-10HS
Comments: Every Draft class has players who fit the high-risk, high-reward label. Golden is a raw and toolsy high school outfielder with speed and power. He shows some feel for hitting, but never consistently. More than anything, Golden needs to play and gain experience. More of a student of the game than people might think, once Golden gets to play more and receives full-time instruction, the tools could sharpen. That's what the team that takes him -- and it likely won't take too long for that to happen -- will be banking on.
Enhanced Scouting Report
66Thompson, JacobCal State - Long BeachRHPR/R6'03"2251989-08-08JR
Comments: Thompson's name was moving up Draft boards over the course of the spring as an intriguing college right-hander who appeared to figure some things out. Having left high school a year early, he's still very young, but the maturing process may have started in earnest this season. He shows the ability to throw three pitches for strikes and maintain his stuff and velocity deep into his starts. Even if the changeup doesn't completely come around, he could be a very good short relief option with his fastball-slider combination. Either way, Thompson was turning upside into performance, and that should help him move into the early rounds.
Enhanced Scouting Report
67Littlewood, MarcusPineview HS (UT)SSS/R6'03"1981992-03-18HS
Comments: Littlewood looks the part of a ballplayer with a solid, athletic frame. He has good hands and a plus arm in the infield, but his size and lack of speed will likely necessitate a move from shortstop. If he moves to third, the question will be if the bat will play there. He's a switch-hitter with a nice swing, but right now it doesn't look like he projects to have enough power for a corner. That could mean a future as a utility guy, but a team who believes in the frame and the defensive skills and sees upside with the swing will take a chance.
Enhanced Scouting Report
68Smyly, DrewArkansasLHPL/L6'03"1901989-06-13JR
Comments: Brett Eibner gets most of the pub for arms coming from Arkansas, but Smyly's a viable prospect in his own right. The lefty has a four-pitch mix with a fastball he can run up to 93 mph, an average curve (74-76 mph), a cutter he throws 84-86 mph that grades out as average and a 78-80 mph changeup. He's the type who could fit nicely at the back end of the rotation or as a quality lefty specialist on a big league staff.
69Sweeney, KellenJefferson HS (IA)3BL/R6'00"1801991-09-14HS
Comments: The brother of A's outfielder Ryan, the younger Sweeney has been on radar screens for a while now. He has very good hitting skills from the left side of the plate, though he doesn't have much power. He runs well, enough and his instincts allow that part of his game to play up. If he can stay at shortstop -- and he does show some ability -- he has that much more value, even at second -- keeping him up the middle -- could be a key. He reportedly had a good workout with the Blue Jays recently, and things like that could shoot him up the charts in a hurry.

70Simmons, AndreltonWestern Oklahoma StateSSR/R6'02"1701989-09-04J1
71Goodrum, CartierFayette County HS (GA)SSS/R6'03"1671992-02-28HS
Comments: Goodrum fits the mold of the high-risk, high-reward toolsy high school athlete. He has plenty of speed and some raw power from both sides of the plate, but his swing and approach will need work so he can tap into that power. Currently a shortstop, most foresee a move to the outfield, where he could put his speed and above-average arm to good use in center field. The big question is whether he'll be able to hit enough at the next level. The team that thinks he will is the one that will take a chance on his high ceiling.
Enhanced Scouting Report
72Buckel, CodyRoyal HS (CA)RHPR/R6'00"1701992-06-18HS
Comments: Perhaps a tier below the top prep arms in this Draft class, Buckel does have an interesting mix of stuff, with three pitches he can throw for strikes now, and athleticism. He's not the big, projectable right-hander many teams look for in high school pitchers, but he has a good feel for pitching and is a strong competitor on the mound. There tends to be a bias against smallish right-handers, but the team that looks past that could get a pretty good find here.
Enhanced Scouting Report
73Rasmussen, RobertUCLALHPR/L5'10"1601989-04-02JR
Comments: Rasmussen is a pretty advanced college lefty with an interesting combination of pitchability and stuff. He has four pitches he's around the plate with, though he does need to be a little more efficient with his pitches. He's a bit undersized, which might concern some, but he does a nice job mixing his pitches and keeping hitters guessing. If the spike in velocity he showed early in the spring is still around all season, he could sneak even further up Draft boards.
Enhanced Scouting Report
74Parker, JarrettVirginiaCFL/L6'04"2101989-01-01JR
Comments: Parker had a rough go of it in the Cape Cod League last summer, but there was hope that he'd bounce back and fulfill expectaitons of being one of the more interesting college hitters in this year's class. It hasn't really worked out that way as he's struggled to find offensive consistency, though he was coming on a little bit late. What he does have is plenty of speed, which gives him the ability to steal bases and play a superb center field. Those are marketable skills, and the team that thinks he'll hit will still nab the Virginia outfielder fairly early on.
Enhanced Scouting Report
75Swagerty, JordanArizona StateRHPS/R6'01"1751989-07-14SO
Comments: Swagerty is a draft-eligible sophomore who has been a two-way player as a catcher and a reliever. His future as a pro will be on the mound as he brings three outstanding pitches and good command to the table. While it might be tempting to try someone with that combination of skills as a starter, his aggressive approach on the mound, a delivery that has some effort to it and not the biggest frame in the world, relief work appears to be his calling. He profiles as the type of college reliever who could be quick to the big leagues, and those are typically in high demand when the Draft rolls around.
Enhanced Scouting Report
76Bettis, ChadTexas TechRHPR/R6'01"1951989-04-26JR
Comments: Bettis has had more success as a reliever than as a starter, particularly last summer as Team USA's closer, and that's likely where he'll find his future role. Bettis has a plus fastball, a hard breaking ball and a changeup at his disposal, though sometimes mechanical issues flatten out his stuff and make him hittable. He does go right after hitters, and being shortened up for an inning or two should help his stuff play up. Texas Tech moved him back into a relief role (if he didn't relieve on Friday or Saturday, he would start on Sunday) and that could help his Draft status. Even if he doesn't close at the next level, he could be a pretty productive setup guy.
Enhanced Scouting Report
77Garner, PercyBall StateRHPR/R6'03"2251988-12-13JR
78Cash, RalstonLakeview Academy (GA)RHPR/R6'01"1971991-08-20HS
Comments: In 2009, Cash was named the 2009 Baseball Player of the Year by the Gainesville Times along with First Team All-Area and Region 8-A Pitcher of the Year. Ralston signed to play at the University of Georgia.
79Dietrich, DerekGeorgia TechSSL/R6'01"1951989-07-18JR
Comments: A third-round pick by the Houston Astros in 2007, Dietrich has shown plenty of ability to hit over his career at Georgia Tech, though it hasn't always been consistent. He does seem to be saving his best for the right time, as he's been producing well all spring. Most feel he'll have to move from short to third as a pro, at which point questions about his future power will come more into play. He's certainly been evaluated enough over the years, so it will come down to which team has seen him perform best, especially this year, and believes the bat will continue to come on.

81Tillman, DanielFlorida Southern CollegeRHPR/R6'01"1951989-03-14JR
82Gumbs, AngeloTorrance HS (CA)SSR/R6'00"1751992-10-13HS
83Hague, RickRiceSSR/R6'02"1901988-09-18JR
Comments: Hague was selected to play for the United States National Team last summer. He was selected in the 37th round of the 2007 Draft by the Milwaukee Brewers but did not sign.
84Rojas Jr., MelWabash Valley CollegeCFS/R6'03"2001990-05-24J2
Comments: The son of the former big league reliever of the same name, Rojas is a toolsy, athletic outfielder who has the defensive skills to play a very good center field. He has more speed under way but should also steal some bases. While not projecting to have much power, he does have some hitting ability from both sides of the plate. His bloodlines have helped, but playing at Wabash has made him difficult to evaluate.
Enhanced Scouting Report
85Klein, DanielUCLARHPR/R6'03"1901988-07-27JR
Comments: After missing all of 2009 because of shoulder surgery, Klein wasn't really on radar screens. That changed in a hurry as he emerged as one of the better college closers in the country. He can throw four pitches for strikes, leading some to think he should get a chance to start at the next level. Even if that doesn't pan out, teams know they will have a competitive pitcher who can excel in a relief role and move quickly through a system. If teams feel he's fully healthy -- and he appears to be -- that's the type of arm that usually gets drafted fairly early.
Enhanced Scouting Report
86Antonio, MichaelGeorge Washington HS (NY)SSR/R6'02"1901991-10-26HS
87Wolters, TonyRancho Buena Vista HS (CA)SSL/R5'10"1651992-06-09HS
Comments: At the beginning of the 2010 season, Wolters began separating himself from other high school position players. He knows how to handle the bat and the lefty has no difficulties facing southpaws or guys who throw hard. He runs well and has plenty of defensive skills. He's not the biggest guy in the world, but he has some pop in his bat. A team that looks past the size and thinks about the success of guys like Dustin Pedroia will likely be very interested in what Wolters can do.
Enhanced Scouting Report
88Rowland, RobertCloverdale HS (CA)RHPS/R6'06"1991-12-15HS
89Forsythe, NormanTennesseeCR/R6'02"2201989-07-31JR
90Wates, AustinVirginia TechRFR/R6'01"1988-09-02JR
Comments: Wates is a rare breed: a toolsy college hitter. The Virginia Tech standout's best tool is his speed and he should be a base-stealing threat at the next level. He can swing the bat, too, and projects to hit for more than enough average. What he's not going to do is hit for a ton of power. That, and his lack of a true position -- he's playing first and left field this season -- are the only real knocks against him. He has the skills to play left full-time and could be a future table-setter. Those are always in high demand, so don't expect Wates to last long on Draft day.
