22 665 Cleveland Indians Merrill Kelly RHP Ariz.
Opposing coaches gushed about righthander Merrill Kelly--likely because he shut down their teams and put up fantastic numbers this season. Scouts' reviews weren't quite as glowing. His fastball is 87-91 mph and his arm action is rigid. He has good command and mixes in a little breaking ball, but it's his changeups that are his out pitches. One is a traditional circle change with some sink, and he freezes hitters when he lops 20 mph off and floats a borderline eephus up to the plate. His brother Reid pitches in the Astros organization; Merrill is committed to Arizona State.
43 1304 New York Mets Bobby Rinard OF Ariz.
Right fielder Bobby Rinard has a good arm and can run, but he's raw offensively. He has the athleticism and tools to be a late-round pick, though he'll more likely end up at Southern California.
