39 1176 Toronto Blue Jays Nick Vander Tuig RHP Calif.
Righthander Vander Tuig would have gotten first-round consideration had he not injured his elbow last spring throwing from right field in a high school game. He had Tommy John surgery, and for a club to sign him this June would take a leap of faith. Prior to the injury, the 6-foot-3, 190-pounder showed a fastball in the 90-93 mph range with good sink. His slider looked capable of being an above-average pitch, though it was inconsistent. Vander Tuig's arm speed and lean, strong body are both attractive attributes, but he'll probably head on to UCLA.
