36 1084 Texas Rangers Matt Carasiti RHP Conn.
All of the prep prospects in the region are expected to head to school, but several of them have intriguing upside. The best of the lot is righthander Matt Carasiti, a projectable athlete with plenty of arm strength. Carasiti works in the 88-91 mph range now but figures to add velocity as he matures. He flashes a decent slider and is working on a split-finger fastball, and he could develop into a premium pick in three years at St. John's.
