1s 46 San Diego Padres Logan Forsythe 3B Ark. $835,000
Forsythe ranked second on Team USA with six steals and third with a .309 batting average (trailing only cinch first-rounder Pedro Alvarez and Brett Wallace), but he came down with a stress fracture in his right foot at the end of last summer. After having surgery in November, he wasn't able to train as he normally would, resulting in a hamstring pull this spring. Forsythe uses his legs in his swing, and the hamstring injury affected his stroke in the early going. Once he healed, he again began drilling line drives into the gaps and making a push for the second round. Scouts believe he'll have average power in the big leagues and liken his approach to Mike Lowell's, so he should provide enough offense to stick at the hot corner. If not, he's versatile enough to also have played second base, shortstop and left field for Team USA. The 6-foot-1, 208-pounder is more athletic than most third basemen. He has an above-average arm, moves well and is a solid-average runner with good instincts.
11 333 Texas Rangers Cliff Springston LHP Ark.
A two-way player for two years at Baylor, Cliff Springston found more success after focusing solely on pitching when he transferred to Arkansas. After the Razorbacks lost their weekend rotation (Nick Schmidt, Jess Todd, Duke Welker) to the first two rounds of the 2007 draft, Springston has become their top starter. He's a lefty with good size (6-foot-3, 210 pounds) and a feel for pitching. He can spot his 86-90 mph fastball to both sides of the plate, and he may have more velocity in him. Springston has a clean delivery, mixes four pitches and flashes a solid slider when he stays on top of it.
