5 175 New York Yankees Tommy Kahnle RHP Fla. $150,000
Lynn's poor season didn't drag down Kahnle's draft stock. The stocky 6-foot, 225-pound righty has the same 93-94 mph fastball velocity (touching 95 at times after reaching 97 last summer) that he showed last year en route to the national title and in the Cape Cod League. Kahnle was pressed into a starting role this season and just doesn't have the quality offspeed stuff to go through a lineup more than once or twice at this stage. His changeup is his second-best pitch, and his breaking ball was sharper last summer than this spring. He can show periods of control but lacks command and profiles as a bullpen arm. Short college righthanders who go 2-7, 5.06 with 71 strikeouts and 47 walks in 75 innings at the D-II level usually don't fly off the board, but Kahnle's track record in the Cape should still get him picked in the first 10 rounds.
