12 353 Seattle Mariners Andrew Carraway RHP Va.
The Cavaliers' top prospect for this year is righthander Andrew Carraway, who shut down a strong UC Irvine club to clinch Virginia's regional victory. He threw seven innings, allowing just one run on four hits while striking out three, and improved to 7-1, 4.30 on the season and may have boosted his draft stock. His arsenal isn't overwhelming, but his pitchability and command make everything play up. His fastball sits in the mid-80s and can touch the low 90s. His curveball flashes sharp break and sits in the low 70s, and he also shows a changeup and slider. He should be a quality senior sign.

Shortstop Tyler Cannon is the best draft-eligible hitter for the Cavaliers, though pro scouts like him better as a catcher or third baseman. He's a switch-hitter who was batting .349/.442/.493 going into super regionals, but scouts aren't convinced he'll hit in pro ball. If he could stick behind the plate his offense becomes less of a concern. He also has the versatility to make him a useful utilityman, and he could be helped by the lack of college hitters in this draft.
