3 109 Chicago Cubs Austin Kirk LHP Okla. $320,000
Kirk led Owasso to the Oklahoma 6-A championship, making the Rams the Sooner State's first large school ever to win three straight league titles. He won three games in the final week of the state tournament, concluding with a four-hitter over Edmond's Santa Fe High in the finals for Owasso's ei ghth championship in the last 11 years. Kirk doesn't have a lot of projection remaining in his strong 6-foot-1, 200-pound frame, but he already has quality stuff for a lefthander. He surprised scouts by touching 92 mph in a February scrimmage against Tulsa's Memorial High and ace Jon Reed. Kirk has moved past Reed as the state's No. 2 high school prospect behind projected first-rounder Chad James (Yukon High) by pitching at 88-91 mph all spring after previously topping out in the high 80s. His fastball is explosive and gets on hitters quickly, making it appear even faster. He also consistently stays on top of his improved curveball with his high three-quarters delivery and has an advanced changeup for a high schooler. Kirk could go in the fourth or fifth round if teams believe he'll sign. If he doesn't, he'll head to Oklahoma and get the chance to contribute as a two-way player. He's a first baseman with some lefthanded power.
