12 382 Los Angeles Dodgers Matt Kirkland 3B Tenn.
Kirkland has shown raw power potential since his freshman season, when he was in the lineup with Tennessee's current first baseman, Cody Hawn. He has the tools for third, with arm strength and has the present strength in his 6-foot-1, 210-pound frame to contribute as a freshman if he makes it to Knoxville as part of Tennessee's recruiting class. Some pro scouts would like to see him behind the plate.
