17 505 Kansas City Royals Jake Kuebler 3B Neb. $150,000
Third baseman/righthander Jake Kuebler not only is Nebraska's best high school prospect, but he also has the best bloodlines. Alex Gordon's cousin has a projectable 6-foot-5, 195-pound frame and could grow into a slugging third baseman. He shows a quick arm and a high-80s fastball on the mound, though his fastball is in the remedial stages. He's considered unsignable and will likely follow in Gordon's footsteps at Nebraska.
