15 446 Baltimore Orioles Garrett Bush RHP Fla.
The state's prep ranks were much deeper in hitters than in pitchers, with less consensus among scouts on who the best prospects are. Some teams will like Garrett Bush enough to sign him away from an Auburn commitment. A catcher for his high school team, Bush emerged the last two years as a closer as well and has shown an electric arm, reaching 95 mph and at times flashing good sink and a breaking ball. Most teams consider him too tall to catch as a pro anyway at 6-foot-5, 190 pounds, and he's got more of a pitcher's body. Bush's velocity was inconsistent, but scouts love his arm strength.
