8 255 San Diego Padres Beamer Weems SS Texas $250,000
With tremendous range, soft hands a strong arm, Beamer Weems is one of the best defensive shortstops in the draft. But he had a poor season with the bat, hitting a career-low .267/.379/.437, and scouts say he let his offensive struggles affect his defense and his attitude. He's a switch-hitter with gap power, and he may be better off hitting righthanded and focusing on getting on base. He's a slightly below-average runner, so his total offensive package probably fits toward the bottom of a pro lineup.
