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.

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
33Kvasnicka, MichaelMinnesotaCS/R6'02"2001988-12-07JR
Comments: Kvasnicka was once a vaguely interesting college outfielder. A move behind the plate, however, has made him much more intriguing. His defensive ability is still quite raw, but his athleticism and above-average arm strength give him a chance. He hasn't hit with much power this year but has shown a good approach at the plate. A switch-hitting catcher who can hit and catch is a hot commodity, and that's why Kvasnicka's stock was rising as the Draft approached.
Enhanced Scouting Report
58Velasquez, VincentGarey HS (CA)RHPS/R6'03"1851992-06-07HS
Comments: Velasquez raised many eyebrows with his breakout performance at the Urban Youth Academy. In the past, Velasquez had largely been a position player, partially because of an injury and partially because that's how he viewed himself. He may be forced to change his view because there's no doubt scouts see him on the mound after he was throwing a live fastball a good curve and a plus change. Add in good athleticism, excellent mechanics and the kind of projectable body scouts love, if Velasquez continues to throw that well, he'll move up the charts among high school arms in a hurry.
Enhanced Scouting Report
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.

183Plutko, AdamGlendora HS (CA)RHPR/R6'03"1801991-10-03HS
Comments: In a strong year for high school arms, there are a few elite names at the very top followed by a fairly deep crop right below. Plutko probably fits in the latter group. He was getting extra buzz early in the spring with strong performances, showing a fastball up to 93-94 mph and an excellent changeup. His breaking stuff has been a bit inconsistent, and that might be what keeps him from joining that top group of prep arms. But with a quick arm, a projectable and athletic frame and a pretty good idea of how to pitch, Plutko shouldn't have to wait too long to hear his name called.

573Jones, JacobyRichton HS (MS)SSR/R6'03"1901992-05-10HS
Comments: While Manny Machado in Miami gets most of the buzz regarding high school bats these days, and rightfully so, Jones isn't too far behind. The Mississippi prep product could have a special bat, with plus power. He has all the tools to stay at shortstop, with good hands and excellent range. Even if he outgrew short, it looks like he might have enough bat to handle a corner position. He's not going to be the first prep position player to go off the board, but he shouldn't have to wait too long to hear his name called.
