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.

310Baxendale, D.J.ArkansasRHPR/R6'02"1901990-12-08JR 
Comments: While Ryne Stanek, who missed being a Draft-eligible sophomore by a week, has been Arkansas' Friday starter this season, Baxendale has served as a perfect bookend, taking the ball on Sundays. The right-hander is more pitchability than pure stuff, with an average fastball and two average breaking balls he throws for strikes and mixes well. His fastball will top out at around 91-92 mph. When he keeps it down in the strike zone, it has pretty good sink and tail. Baxendale's slider is the better of the two secondary pitches, more of a sweeping breaking ball than one with hard bite. The curve is average and a bit slurvy, making one wonder if it might make sense for him to focus on one breaking ball in the future. He commands the ball well, moving it in and out and keeping hitters guessing. Baxendale's poise and competitiveness allow his stuff to play up, and while he certainly won't be among the first tier of college pitchers to go off the board, he's a solid advanced arm that could move quickly through a Minor League system.

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.

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.
Ballew, TravisTexas StateRHPR/R6'00"1601991-05-01JR 
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.

Brusa, GiovanniSt. Marys HS (CA)RFS/R6'03"1951993-07-26HS 
Comments: Strong and physical, Brusa is a switch-hitter with raw power from both sides of the plate. He hasn't always had the best swing mechanics, but he improved on that in 2012, though there's some concern about his overall ability to hit and thus tap into that raw power. He's a pretty good athlete who should be fine in an outfield corner. Even with questions about his hit tool, the pop from both sides should be enough to draw interest from many teams.

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.

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
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.
413Booth, TylerCentral Arizona ColOFL/L6'00"1551992-10-27J1 
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.
