8 253 Detroit Tigers Patrick Leyland C Pa. $125,000
Another Terrapins signee, Leyland, is the son of Tigers manager Jim Leyland, so he'll almost certainly get drafted, but scouts don't think he's ready for pro ball yet. Leyland has worked hard to get his once-soft body into better shape, and he has improved his receiving skills, but his average arm is not accurate so he gets run on plenty. His bat is also a work in progress.
