18 560 New York Yankees Brandon Braboy RHP Ind.
Righthander Brandon Braboy is another small-college starter who emerged this spring. NCAA Division II Indianapolis recruited him from Rend Lake (Ill.) CC as a shortstop, but he has found a home on the mound as his fastball consistently touched 94-95 mph this spring. Though he's just 6 feet tall and 195 pounds, he generates his plus velocity more with arm speed than effort. His breaking ball and his command are still raw, but his arm strength is hard to ignore.
