21 636 Minnesota Twins Steve Blevins RHP W.Va.
West Virginia is the only state in the area without a player in the Top 200, but even there scouts have found more talent than in recent years. Its top prospect is Marshall righthander Steve Blevins. After attending the University of Cincinnati for two seasons, Blevins transferred to Marshall and won a team-high nine games for the Thundering Herd. With a low-90s fastball, Blevins is a competitor with a solid build.
