8 244 San Diego Padres Jose Dore OF Fla. $450,000
Orlando's Dore has his advocates. While he plays at a low level of competition, Dore has displayed plus tools and a right-field profile in his strong arm, which earns some well-above-average grades, and his bat, which has earned Cody Ross comparisons. Like Ross, Dore is somewhat squat at 6-foot-1, 190 pounds and he has surprising power. Dore hit 16 homers as a junior, tying a state record, after getting stronger and working on his swing with Astros minor league coach Stan Boroski. However, he had a broken arm in the offseason and hasn't quite been as explosive as a senior. Dore has a center fielder's body with below-average speed. While some clubs have him pushing for consideration in the top five rounds, others are less bullish, and his Florida State commitment might make him a tougher sign in later rounds.
