11 339 Toronto Blue Jays Dustin Antolin RHP Mililani (Hawaii) HS
Antolin has touched 93 mph in shorter stints but generally sits in the 85-89 mph range. He has a clean arm action and loose wrists that should allow him to throw harder in the future and add power to his breaking ball. His low three-quarters arm slot helps give his two-seamer good sinking life and lends itself to a slider that has average potential. He mixes in a changeup as well and could be drafted higher than Daly.
13 399 Toronto Blue Jays Matt Daly RHP Hawaii
Matt Daly opened eyes as a freshman reliever for the Rainbow Warriors, hitting 96 mph and showing the durability to pitch back-to-back games as a short reliever. He was a key piece of their 2006 regional team. After starting in the Cape Cod League last summer (and throwing a no-hitter), though, Daly wanted to start this spring for Hawaii, and he didn't throw enough strikes to succeed. He peaked at 94 mph as a starter, and at 5-foot-10, his fastball lacks the downward plane to be effective without better command. Daly's not just an arm strength guy; his slider and changeup are good enough for him to start. He just needs better command of his fastball. He was still generating single-digit interest as a potential middle reliever.
16 486 Minnesota Twins Kolten Wong 2B Kamehameha HS, Hilo, Hawaii
18 561 Cleveland Indians Kaimi Mead LHP Hawaii Pacific
21 652 Boston Red Sox Jonathan Hee 2B Hawaii
Fifth-year senior Jonathan Hee also could be a senior sign, and would kill for one of Haislet's tools. Hee scraps his way on base and has good hands, which work for him at the plate, where he can bunt and spray the ball from pole to pole, and in the field. He played shortstop mostly this spring despite lacking the range for the spot and fits better at second base or as a utility player.
23 706 Philadelphia Phillies Brandon Haislet OF Hawaii
Outfielder Brandon Haislet could be an excellent senior sign this year if he can show intensity to match his tools. He's physically gifted, runs well enough to play a solid center field and throws enough to move to a corner if needed. Haislett has raw power but stiff actions at the plate. He has a good approach at the plate, ranking third in the Western Athletic Conference in batting and first with a .482 on-base percentage, but needs one on the bases to take better advantage of his speed.
31 942 Seattle Mariners Randy Castillo RHP Aiea (Hawaii) HS
Castillo has a similar skinny body to Antolin's, and his stuff grades out a notch lower. He's touched 90 mph and throws four pitches, including a curveball that has potential to be average. He's long and loose-bodied and probably not physically ready for the pro grind; he's committed to Cuesta (Calif.) JC.
50 1496 Detroit Tigers Landon Hernandez C Hawaii
Landon Hernandez, who has solid-average catch and throw tools that could have made him a first 10 rounds pick entering the year, expands his zone too much at the plate. He hit ninth for Hawaii this season and fits better as a senior sign.
