335Banda, AnthonySan Jacinto College NorthLHPL/L6'03"1751993-08-10J1 
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.
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.
Enhanced Scouting Report
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
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.
Enhanced Scouting Report
457Benak, AndrewRiceRHPR/R6'05"2251990-01-31SR 
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.
397Breen, ChristopherWinter Springs HS (FL)CR/R6'03"2151994-03-26HS 
410Bowman, MatthewPrincetonRHPR/R6'00"1651991-05-31JR 
200Boyd, JayceFlorida State1BR/R6'03"2001990-12-30JR 
289Bacus, DakotaIndiana StateRHPR/R6'02"1901991-04-02JR 
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.
458Bielski, RichardServite HS (CA)RHPR/R6'03"1901994-10-25HS 
338Brady, KevinClemsonRHPL/R6'03"2201990-09-07SR 
Comments: Clemson's Friday starter has a solid two-pitch power mix that works in college and might be best suited for the bullpen at the next level. In the past, Brady has shown the ability to run his fastball up into the mid-90s, sitting more comfortably a couple of ticks below that. He has a Major League average curve that he's throwing more consistently this year than he has in the past. Brady doesn't really feature a changeup, a pitch he'd need to be successful as a starter beyond the ACC. With spotty command and an aggressive nature on the mound, a life as a setup man might be in order. But those guys often don't take very long to get to the big leagues.
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
436Buehler, WalkerHenry Clay HS (KY)RHPR/R6'02"1601994-07-28HS 
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.
465Bostjancic, CoryMarin CCRHPR/R6'00"1801992-07-14J2 
341Brito, KristianRamon Quinones Medina1BR/R6'05" 1994-12-20HS 
178Blach, TyCreightonLHPR/L6'01"2001990-10-20JR 
328Brown, TrevorUC Los AngelesCR/R6'02"1951991-11-15JR 
240Barraclough, KyleSt. MarysRHPR/R6'02"2001990-05-23SR 
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.
332Bierman, SeanUniversity of TampaLHPL/L6'01"1901988-10-205S 
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.
216Bolinger, RoyceGonzagaCFR/R6'02"2001990-08-12SR 
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.
