33 991 Washington Nationals Billy Cather OF Maine
Maine's Billy Cather is an exceptional defensive center fielder with above-average speed that plays on the basepaths (he stole 15 bases in 19 attempts this spring). He lacks strength at the plate, but one scout said he could play center field in the majors right away.
39 1175 St. Louis Cardinals Curt Smith 1B Maine
Maine Black Bear Curt Smith played the middle infield his first couple of years at Maine but struggled defensively and split time between left field and first base as a senior. He had his best offensive season, batting .403/.498/.722 with 11 homers, 37 RBIs and 12 steals in 14 attempts, but he's undersized at 5-foot-10 and won't ever hit enough to play left field or first base down the line. He does have good gap power and average speed, but his arm is below-average even for a left fielder.
