34. Tanner Rahier, ss, Palm Desert (Calif.) HS
Baseball rat plays with a ton of energy. Knack for squaring it up with wood.

Southern Mississippi football recruit has excellent athleticism.

38. Ty Buttrey, rhp, Providence HS, Charlotte
Older prep righty started hot but wore out from heavy workload. Video

Draws David Wright comparisons for bat and makeup. Video
