8 238 Atlanta Braves Kyle Rose OF Ala. $122,500
Rose, listed at 6-foot, 175 pounds, was drafted out of high school in 2007, despite a bus accident in 2006 that caused damage to his spleen and lungs. He spent two seasons at Northwest Shoals (Ala.) CC and had signed with Division II North Alabama, but his above-average athletic ability and plus speed prompted draft interest in the 10-round range. His bat is still considered fairly raw.
