10 316 Philadelphia Phillies J.C. Rodriguez C N.Y. $105,000
New York's high school crop is its weakest in years. The best of the lot is catcher Jean Carlos Rodriguez, who could sneak into the top 10 rounds. Rodriguez has raw power and a plus arm behind the plate, but he's unrefined as a hitter. He has a tall approach that doesn't incorporate his legs well. He is a promising receiver but has plenty of work to do defensively.
50 1486 Washington Nationals Fernando Frias OF N.Y.
Outfielder Fernando Frias has plenty of raw power but a raw approach, though he could hit home runs by the bushel in junior college.
