13 389 Cincinnati Reds Blaine Howell LHP Fla.
Blaine Howell has dominated for Pensacola JC, but scouting departments aren't sure where to put his name on their boards. A lefthander pitching between 90-92 mph, Howell has made it known that he plans to go on his Mormon mission and won't be available for pro ball for at least two years. He is a true pro prospect, complementing his above-average fastball with an exceptional curveball, and could be a valuable lefty in a major league bullpen down the road.
