6 200 New York Yankees Brett Marshall RHP Texas $850,000
Marshall presents a conundrum to scouts. After working at 88-91 mph with his fastball last summer, he jumped up to 96 mph at the outset of his senior season. His slider still needs some refinement, but it topped out at 86-87 mph. And his initial college commitment was to San Jacinto (Texas) JC, indicating that he could be fairly easy to sign. But since generating a lot of early season excitement, Marshall has backed up a little. He was sitting at 91 mph and topping out at 94 mph as the draft drew closer, and his slider wasn't as crisp. While he's wiry strong, he's also just 6 feet and 185 pounds and has some effort in his delivery, which also compromises his ability to repeat it and throw strikes. There's also talk that he's exploring the possibility of attending Rice, which could make it tougher for him to turn pro. There are a lot of differing opinions on Marshall, but he could be signable if a team likes him enough to take him in the second round.
27 832 Boston Red Sox Hunter Cervenka LHP Texas $350,000
Sterling lefty Hunter Cervenka throws hard, overpowering hitters with an 89-93 mph fastball and a low-80s slider. The 6-foot-2, 190-pounder also works with a lot more effort and a lot less command than some other pitchers, and Cervenka's reputation as a hothead turns off some scouts. His body may be maxed out already. Cervenka also is a right fielder with a lot of power potential, a strong arm and decent speed. He committed to Texas, but may turn pro or could take a detour to San Jacinto JC.
