7 205 Pittsburgh Pirates Trent Stevenson RHP Ariz. $350,000
Stevenson has the kind of body scouts dream on. In 2005, Stevenson was a 5-foot-10, 125-pound shortstop. He's sprouted up considerably since his freshman year and now stands 6-foot-6. Still rail thin at 165 pounds, he's been pitching at 88-91 mph, but was up to 93 in the fall. He also showed great command in the fall, but has been inconsistent this year. His slider has looked sharp at times, but has also been inconsistent and he has a tendency to drop his arm slot when throwing the pitch. He's a bit of a wild card in the draft. As a player who is still growing into his body and is relatively new to pitching, teams are baking on the projection with Stevenson. Scouts and college recruiters reported that he seemed to be a bit overwhelmed with the attention he received this spring and think he may end up at college.
