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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

231Barraza, JoseSunnyside HS (CA)CL/R6'01"2201994-07-28HS 
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
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.
Enhanced Scouting Report
252Boss, TorstenMichigan StateOFL/R6'00"1951990-12-27JR 
Comments: College bats with the potential to be five-tool players are hard to find, and this is exactly why Boss could be drafted early. Boss has above average speed for a third baseman and has good power that is created by great bat speed. He also has solid plate discipline and is able to draw walks consistently. He doesn't have the greatest hands and instincts at third but he does have enough arm strength and speed to handle an outfield corner position, a place where some scouts believe he will end up. Boss has performed very well against top competition, homering off of Texas A&M pitcher Michael Wacha.
179Brown, BlakeMissouriRFR/R6'00"1851991-06-30JR 
359Borders, LeviWinter Haven HS (FL)CR/R6'03"1801992-12-21HS 
149Black, JustinBillings West HS (MT)CFR/R6'00"1901993-05-20HS 
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.
