15 454 San Diego Padres Sean Dwyer 1B Fla.
A Florida Gulf Coast signee, Dwyer started rising up draft boards this year when he just wouldn't stop hitting. The 6-foot, 190-pounder also pitches for his high school team, and probably would have played all over the diamond if he weren't lefthanded. Dwyer is a good athlete for the prep level and plays first base and all three outfield spots. Pro scouts who like him believe he could stick in right, but others doubt his athleticism and arm strength and believe he could wind up in left field, or even first base. His best tool is his bat. Dwyer has present strength, good raw power and a sweet lefthanded swing with balance and some polish to his approach. He struck out just six times all spring and was pitched around frequently. He has also worked out a lot with wood for scouts and has shown the same traits. Dwyer is an average runner with a solid-average arm, and he'll have to maintain those to stick in right, where he'd have more value.
