Another name that I have been hearing about is OF Roger Kieschnick of Texas Tech. Heading into 2008, Kieschnick was selected second-team All-America. Through his first 23 games of the season he had 11 HR, 34 RBI, .340 Avg., 1.276 OPS, 18/14 BB/K ratio through 94 at-bats. In his freshman year, he hit .359, 9 HR 55 RBI .967 OPS and was selected to Team USA. In his sophomore year, his HR spiked to 13 and earned another selection to Team USA. According to Baseball America, he's projected to go in the second round. Someone to keep an eye one.

Pedro Alvarez
Justin Smoak
Brian Matsuz- i really like this guy think he will develop into something special
Jacob Thompson- another guy i like
Kyle Russel- was drafted but didn't sign
Jermile Weeks- Rickie's little brother who plays 2B for Miami
Aaron Crow


Buster Posey, C, Florida St also interests me fantasy wise. Some mocks I have seen put him in the top 10 and he had a great year batting. I've read he's a little raw behind the plate, since he's a converted shortstop, but he has the tools to stick.

I wouldn't mind the Rays snagging him in the 2nd round or beyond. Isn't a first round talent but has plenty of projection left in his tall frame.


That guy is a great hitter. He has decent power, but when he comes to the plate he is a base hit waiting to happen.

He's a junior this year, so I doubt he'll come out in the draft. He's a wiz in the classroom, so he'll probably wrap up his Duke degree before heading to the show. Still, good player to keep an eye on for next season.

If he gets drafted high enough I bet he will come out. Also you make it sound like junior's don't come out of college, when thats really where most all the talent leaves as. But the kid is plenty big enough to develope more power as he gets older with his projection.
