12 362 Kansas City Royals Nick Wooley RHP Mo.
Righthander Nick Wooley blossomed at William Woods, his third school in three years. After stops at Rend Lake (Ill.) CC and Southern Illinois-Edwardsville, he has shown one of the best curveballs in the Midwest, a tight 12-to-6 hammer. He also has an 88-91 mph fastball, though it lacks life and sits up in the zone when he pushes it into the low 90s. He has a skinny 6-foot-2, 175-pound frame, so scouts worry about his durability.
