9 264 San Diego Padres Chris Fetter RHP Mich. $25,000
Chris Fetter made the all-Big 10 Conference team for the third straight season, but scouts didn't really warm up to the 6-foot-8, 230-pound righthander this spring. In the past, he neutralized his height by pitching from a low arm angle and peaked in the mid-80s. After raising to a high three-quarters slot and doing a lot of work with weighted balls and long toss, Fetter threw 90-93 mph with good run on his fastball as a fifth-year senior. He still drops down on occasion, but not nearly as much as in the past. His slider also improved but is average at best, so he may need to shift to a splitter in pro ball. Fetter finished his career in third place in wins (28-10) and strikeouts (281 in 332 innings) in Michigan history.
