200Boyd, JayceFlorida State1BR/R6'03"2001990-12-30JR 
186Beck, PrestonUniversity of Texas - ArlingtonOFL/R6'02"1901990-10-26JR 
Comments: Texas-Arlington seems to be pretty good at producing outfielders who can hit. Back in 2004, it was Hunter Pence, who went in the second round. In 2010, it was Michael Choice, who went No. 10 overall to the A's. Now it's Beck's turn. He doesn't quite have the power Choice had, but there's pop in Beck's left-handed bat, and his hit tool grades out as a touch better than Choice's. With an outstanding arm and that offensive ability, Beck could fit the mold of a prototypical right fielder in the future.

178Blach, TyCreightonLHPR/L6'01"2001990-10-20JR 
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.

171Basto, NickArchbishop McCarthy HS (FL)SSR/R6'01"1801994-04-01HS 
157Black, CoreyFaulkner UniversityRHPR/R5'11"1751991-08-04JR 
Comments: Black has a good fastball that has good movement and can get into the upper 90s. Black also has relatively good secondary stuff and dominated the NAIA. A lot is still unknown about the righty from a small school in Alabama, but he could end up being a steal in the Draft.
151Buttrey, TyProvidence Sr. HS (NC)RHPL/R6'05"2051993-03-31HS 
Comments: When a pitcher kicks off a Draft season with a noticeable jump in velocity, it's going to attract attention. Buttrey did just that, causing an influx of scouts to the Charlotte area. The big right-hander was up to the mid-90s at the start of the season. While he didn't maintain that, he was still sitting in the low 90s as the spring progressed. He's shown the ability to run it in on hitters' hands or cut it away. His breaking ball -- a curve with a good, long break to it -- is also improved. His changeup isn't as good, but it should work as a usable third option once he starts throwing it more. Tall and long-limbed, Buttrey does have some issues with repeating his delivery, and thus, with his overall command. But considering he's still a bit raw, his size, arm strength and potential will have many teams interested in the early going.

149Black, JustinBillings West HS (MT)CFR/R6'00"1901993-05-20HS 
141Brennan, BrandonOrange Coast CollegeRHPR/R6'04"2201991-07-26J2 
139Boyd, B.J.Palo Alto HS (CA)CFL/R5'10" 1993-07-16HS 
Comments: Boyd possesses great athleticism and speed in the outfield and has shown good instincts on the base paths. He has an average arm, but it should become better with more work and better mechanics. He should be able to hit for a decent average and could hit for some power with his very muscular frame. Boyd has always split time between baseball and football, so when he starts to focus on just baseball, he could develop into a very good player.
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.
Enhanced Scouting Report
79Brown, MitchRochester Century HS (MN)RHPR/R6'01"1951994-04-13HS 
Comments: It's not uncommon for players who play in colder climates to be late risers as scouts get to see them as the weather changes. That definitely has been the case for Brown this spring. While not the biggest guy in the world, he is strong and durably built. He also has a good idea of what he's doing on the mound. The right-hander can run his fastball up to 94 mph. He can spin a breaking ball pretty well, throws a good cutter and even shows a feel for the changeup. That gives him the chance to have four Major League average or well above offerings in the future. While Brown can struggle with his overall command at times, it's not a long-term concern. There was little doubt he was the best player in the state of Minnesota as the Draft approached, one who was creeping up higher on Draft boards.
Enhanced Scouting Report
76Beck, ChrisGeorgia SouthernRHPR/R6'03"2251990-09-04JR 
Comments: Beck is a strong right-hander who may not be the first college arm to come off Draft boards, but a strong junior season could have him in the top of the first-round discussion.The Georgia native has the chance to have three pitches that will be Major League average or better. He can run his fastball up to 94 mph, sitting comfortably at 92-93 mph, and he maintains his velocity deep into starts. When he stays on top of his slider, it's a sharp breaking ball with late tilt. His changeup is above-average with late sink and a lot of deception. He can throw all three pitches for strikes and has a very good feel for pitching.For a guy with his size and stuff -- think a Kyle Davies type with more power -- he doesn't always throw like a power arm. His fastball will flatten out at times and his slider isn't always crisp, but if he would pitch off of his fastball more, he could be even better, a frontline starter with three weapons to choose from.
Enhanced Scouting Report
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.
59Bean, SteveRockwall HS (TX)CL/R6'02"1901993-09-15HS 
Comments: It's not a great class for catching, especially from the high school ranks, so Bean has the chance to do pretty well come Draft time, especially considering he's a left-handed-hitting backstop. The University of Texas commit makes consistent hard contact and should have some future power. He has a strong arm behind the dish and should have the receiving skills to stay there long term.
56Blackburn, PaulHeritage HS (CA)RHPR/R6'02"1851993-12-04HS 
Comments: After a big performance at last summer's Area Code Games, Blackburn has continued pitching well this spring to keep him firmly on the prospect map. The NoCal high schooler has a good fastball that hits 92 mph consistently and will touch a tick or two higher on the radar gun at times. His two secondary offerings – a curve and a changeup – both have the chance to be very effective pitches. He's generally around the strike zone and thanks to his athleticism and sound delivery, his command should only improve with experience. The Arizona State recruit has some projectability, meaning his already pretty good stuff has room to get even better. That should get him off the board early enough to keep him from heading to Arizona.
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
46Butler, EddieRadford URHPS/R6'02"1801991-03-13JR 
Comments: What role teams see Butler filling in the future may determine his status, but he was moving up boards as the Draft approached. He served as a starter for Radford and had a solid junior season, finishing particularly strong, with a pair of 10-strikeout performances in his last four starts. He was touching 97 mph, with a lot of eyes on him late in the year. His slider doesn't grade out as well as the plus heater, but it has the chance to be a solid secondary pitch. He does have a changeup, but it's behind the other two pitches. That, plus command issues and his size, lead many to believe he's better suited for a bullpen role, though his mechanics and command did improve as the season wore on. Even if he gets an opportunity to start, if a team wants to shorten him up as a reliever, they could be getting a big league bullpen arm in a hurry.
Enhanced Scouting Report
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
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.
32Berrios, JosePapa Juan XXIII HSRHPR/R6'00"1901994-05-27HS 
Comments: As the spring progressed, few high school arms had more helium than this right-hander from Puerto Rico. A strong "undersized right-hander," Berrios has a compact and sound delivery that produces two potentially plus pitches. He can throw his fastball now in the 93-96 mph range, perhaps even touching a 97 mph at times. He can elevate the fastball when he needs to and can work down in the zone as well, showing good life to the heater when he does. He backs that up with a power breaking ball, around 80 mph, that's an absolute hammer. His changeup is behind the other two, common for pitchers at this level, but he's shown a feel for it, and it has the chance to be a usable third pitch. He's aggressive and throws strikes, for the most part. While he's young, he's mature, both physically and in terms of his mound presence. There isn't much projection -- he's not the type of prep arm who projects to be much more than he is -- but he has more than enough now stuff to draw a lot of attention in the early stages of the Draft.
Enhanced Scouting Report
29Brinson, LewisCoral Springs HS (FL)OFR/R6'03"1701994-05-08HS 
Comments: Raw, toolsy high school outfielders are always popular come Draft time and if his summer performance is any indication, Brinson has the chance to be one of the best in this category.Tall, lanky and athletic, he reminds some of Dexter Fowler or Cameron Maybin. Brinson has good bat speed and can spray line drives gap-to-gap. There's leverage in his swing with good raw power, which could develop into above-average pop in the future. He's an easily above-average runner, which should play well on both sides of the ball. He makes the plays in the outfield and has a strong arm.More than anything, Brinson is still raw. But as he showed over the summer, the more he plays against good competition, the better he gets. That bodes well for his future and there are sure to be many teams interested in his very full toolbox.
Enhanced Scouting Report
2Buxton, ByronAppling County HS (GA)OFR/R6'02"1901993-12-18HS 
Comments: There may not have been another player who helped his stock more over the summer than Buxton, the toolsy Georgia high school outfielder. Buxton performed well at a variety of showcases, particularly the East Coast Showcase, to put him firmly at the top of many prospect lists.Buxton's best present tool is his speed, which is plus, and should serve him very well both as a basestealer and an outfielder. He's not just a runner, though, showing some ability with the bat. He's got a line-drive stroke with gap power right now. The ball can jump off his bat at times. Defensively, he has the chance to be above-average across the board.Buxton is still more tools than polish, but the more he plays, the better he gets and many teams will gladly bring him into the fold and allow him to develop into an impact-type player.
