8 242 Houston Astros Brad Dydalewicz LHP Texas $425,000
Lefthander Brad Dydalewicz missed the 2007 season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee while playing football, but he has returned to top out at 93 mph this spring. He's just 6-foot-1 and 175 pounds, so he generates his impressive velocity with a slinging, maximum-effort delivery that makes it tough for hitters to pick the ball up. His second pitch is a slurvy breaking ball and he needs a lot of polish. Though he has committed to Arizona, scouts expect him to sign.
