173Baker, DylanWestern Nevada CCRHPR/R6'02"2151992-04-06J2 
Comments: The junior college ranks always produce some good talent and in 2012, Baker might be the best from that pool. With a strong, durable and athletic build, Baker is what teams want to see on the mound. He could have three at least Major League average pitches with solid average command. His fastball sits comfortably around 92 mph, but he can dial it up to 95 mph when he needs to, and it has some pretty good run and sink to it. His secondary stuff is behind the fastball, but his curve has the kind of rotation you're looking for and he has shown a feel for a changeup with decent fade. He gets very high marks for his competitive nature on the mound. While it might take some time for those secondary pitches to develop and for it all to come together, Baker's upside has him moving up boards as the Draft approaches.

68Baltz, JeremySt. JohnsLFR/R6'03"2051990-09-17JR 
Comments: This outfielder has some serious offensive firepower to his game. He has plus power with the ability to drive in runs, hit for average and draw walks. While he's not a burner, he has shown good instincts on the basepaths. He might have the bat for right, but his arm may mean he'll be forced to left field, but it's his bat that teams will be buying.

42Bard, LukeGeorgia TechRHPR/R6'03"1951990-11-13JR 
Comments: The younger brother of Red Sox pitcher Daniel Bard, Luke may not throw quite as hard as big bro, but he has enough fastball, touching the mid-90s at times. He combines that with a good power slider, and that was enough to have some success when he was given a chance to start for Georgia Tech this year. A torn lat muscle ended his season early, somewhat ending his climb. Most see his future in the bullpen, where the his combination of fastball and power breaking ball would play up.
Bargas, BrandonRogers StateLHPL/L5'09"1801990-12-15JR 
45Barnes, BarrettTexas TechOFR/R6'01"1951991-07-29JR 
Comments: Before every Draft, college hitters who perform well move up boards late and end up being taken much sooner than many anticipated at the start of the spring. The more Barnes hit in 2012, the more his name was on the rise. Strong and athletic, Barnes is a little raw as a baseball player, but he has some offensive upside. His best tools are his raw power and his speed, and some of both have shown up in his performance this year. A center fielder currently, Barnes might be best suited for a corner spot when all is said and done. That might mean left field, as his arm is fringy average. He gets high marks for his intensity on the field. Considering the knock against Barnes was that he was more athlete than player, the fact he's performed well for Texas Tech offsets that a bit and should help him come off the board in the early stages of the Draft.
Enhanced Scouting Report
48Barnum, KeonKing HS (FL)1BL/L6'05"2251993-01-16HS 
Comments: For a player to profile at first, teams will typically want to see plenty of power and run production potential. Barnum, a Florida prep product, has both.A big, strong physical specimen, Barnum can generate a lot of bat speed and has the ability to drive the ball to all parts of the ballpark. He shows most of his home run power to the pull side, but there's plenty of raw pop there all-around. Barnum's fine defensively at first, and some have even asked to see him play an outfield corner.Like many young hitters with power, Barnum will get long with his swing at times and try to muscle the ball out. The ability to make adjustments and have a more refined approach will likely come with time and experience.
Enhanced Scouting Report
Barr, AustinCamas HS (WA)CR/R6'02"2151993-09-05HS 
Comments: Hailing from the same area as fellow Draft prospect Clint Coulter, Barr isn't quite on the same level as his neighbor, but he has plenty to like. He's strong and durably built for the position and has the defensive tools -- and leadership teams like to see -- to stay behind the plate long term. Barr has a good idea of what he's doing at the plate, and it looks like he should hit for average and power down the road. He is considered a very tough sign because of his commitment to attend Stanford in the fall.
240Barraclough, KyleSt. MarysRHPR/R6'02"2001990-05-23SR 
231Barraza, JoseSunnyside HS (CA)CL/R6'01"2201994-07-28HS 
120Barrett, JakeArizona StateRHPR/R6'04"2201991-07-22JR 
Comments: The Blue Jays made a run at signing the big right-hander when he was an Arizona high school product, but he headed to ASU instead. Three years later, he's emerging as one of the hardest-throwing arms from the college crop.Getting body comps to big relievers like Heath Bell and Jonathan Broxton, Barrett can flat-out bring it. He has the stuff to be a starter -- a role he fills in college -- with the plus fastball, a slider and a changeup. But his size to go along with a maximum effort delivery and spotty command have many believing he'll be in the back end of a bullpen as a reliever.A team could send him out as a starter in order to let him work on his pitches, but with a fastball that hits the upper-90s and the kind of aggressive mentality you like to see in a short reliever, he could move more quickly in a bullpen role.
