9 282 Seattle Mariners Luke Taylor RHP Wash. $125,000
Righthander Luke Taylor is interesting to scouts because he has such a fresh arm. A converted shortstop, he has been clocked mostly at 86-88 mph and has scraped 90. He has a 6-foot-6, 200-pound frame and the cleanest arm action in the Northwest. His curveball is soft and he's still building arm strength, but he has a lot of projection because of his size, athleticism and arm action. A team could jump up to take him in the fifth-eighth round, but it's more likely that he ends up at Hawaii.
