17 530 Colorado Rockies Ryan Casteel C Tenn.
Catcher Casteel entered the 2009 spring season as the top prep player in the state. He backed out of his Tennessee commitment and made the most of his opportunity at Cleveland State JC, improving his body and showing good athletic ability, strength and hitting ability. He's a year removed from a hamate bone injury that hampered him last spring, and he played with good energy behind the plate while hitting .353 with 14 home runs.
