21 655 New York Yankees Dustin Hobbs RHP Ariz.
28 840 Cleveland Indians DeMarcus Tidwell OF Ariz.
Opposing coaches loved outfielder Tidwell this season, but it was difficult to find a scout who bought into his package. He's a good athlete and was a highly recruited wide receiver out of Grenada (Miss.) High in 2008, but he hasn't shown the speed scouts expected from that profile. Scouts consider him more of an average runner. Tidwell, a 6-foot-3, 180-pounder who bats and throws lefthanded, also was bothered by a hamstring injury this year. He also doesn't have good baseball instincts, running into outs on the bases and struggling to track routine fly balls. He led the Arizona Community College Athletic Conference in batting and has good bat control, but he did it with an opposite-field approach. Playing every day will help Tidwell learn the game, and if he can add a little strength, trust his hands and start turning on more balls, he could be interesting. He also raised makeup questions when he got suspended from his previous team at Bossier Parish (La.) CC.
36 1090 Chicago Cubs Tyler Bremer RHP Ariz.
39 1181 Tampa Bay Rays Parker Markel RHP Ariz.
Righthander Markel can run his fastball up to 93 mph, but he's a guy who doesn't have a clean delivery and profiles as a middle reliever.
47 1411 Arizona Diamondbacks Casey Upperman RHP Ariz.
Righthander Casey Upperman can also run it up to 93 and has a good curveball. He has toned down his Hideki Okajima-esque delivery but is still a max-effort guy.
50 1520 Colorado Rockies James Dykstra RHP Ariz.
Righthander Dykstra is the younger brother of Padres prospect Alan Dykstra. Dykstra is a converted outfielder with a strong arm and a projectable body. He has been clocked at 92-93 mph, but his breaking ball needs work and he'll be a tough sell to scouting directors because he threw a handful of innings this year.
