26 792 Minnesota Twins Mike Giovenco RHP Ill.
Righthander Mike Giovenco attracted scouts to North Park, an NCAA Division III school with an enrollment of 3,000, when he touched 95 mph early in the year. The 6-foot-6, 235-pounder's velocity steadily declined to the high 80s by the end of the season, but his arm strength and size are attractive. Giovenco, who redshirted at Illinois-Chicago in 2007, needs to come up with a more consistent breaking ball. He throws both a slider and a curveball, as well as a changeup. There's some concern that his delivery puts stress on his shoulder.
