24 728 Milwaukee Brewers Brandon Ritchie LHP Mich.
Lefthander Brandon Ritchie re-established himself as the state's top juco prospect after missing 2007 with a knee injury. He needs to do a better job of keeping his 6-foot-5, 240-pound body in shape, but he can touch 92 mph with his fastball and spin a slider. In his final start of the season, he went the distance without allowing an earned run to win a first-round game at the Division II Junior College World Series.
