14 425 Oakland Athletics J.C. Menna RHP N.J.
The top prospect in New Jersey is Brookdale CC righthander J.C. Menna, who ranked 16th on this list and went undrafted a year ago. He did improve his performance this spring, going 6-3, 1.53 with 64 strikeouts and 16 walks in 59 innings. A 39th-round pick by the Pirates out of New Jersey's Red Bank Catholic High in 2007, Menna headed to James Madison after graduating, then transferred to Seton Hall and finally landed at Brookdale last season. Menna ran his fastball up to 92 mph at times in 2009, but his velocity was inconsistent, and his breaking ball was mediocre. This spring, he threw more consistently in the 90-92 range with good life, and he improved his secondary stuff, flashing an average slider and a fringy changeup. He has a chance to be drafted toward the back of the top 10 rounds.
