10 301 Arizona Diamondbacks Kawika Emsley-Pai C Lewis-Clark State (Idaho) $70,000
Switch-hitting catcher Emsley-Pai was highly touted out of high school in Washington as a teammate of Travis Snider. He spent his freshman season at Texas before transferring to Lewis-Clark. Emsley-Pai hasn't hit as scouts expected him to coming out of high school, and he's no longer athletic enough to play center field. He had back issues this year that kept him from catching every day, so his medical reports will play a role in where he gets drafted.
12 381 Philadelphia Phillies Tyler Knigge RHP Lewis-Clark State (Idaho)
The Warriors' top player is staff ace Knigge. At 6-foot-4 and 210 pounds, Knigge has a durable frame and went 9-0, 2.59 with 66 strikeouts and 16 walks over 56 innings. He flashes plus stuff, getting his fastball up to 93 mph, but needs to sharpen his command and show more confidence on the mound.
18 553 Detroit Tigers Josh Ashenbrenner 2B Lewis-Clark State (Idaho)
26 797 Florida Marlins Todd Muecklisch SS Lewis-Clark State (Idaho)
29 885 Minnesota Twins Brian Burke 3B Lewis-Clark State (Idaho)
Senior first baseman Burke is regarded as one of the toughest players in the Northwest. Scouts love his makeup and retell the stories of him taking two years off between high school and college to work and help out his family. That makes him older, even for a college prospect, however. The Lancaster, Calif. native played two seasons at Cypress (Calif.) JC and spent last year at Kansas Wesleyan. He can also catch and play third base, so he has a little defensive versatility for a 6-foot-2, 215-pounder. Burke bats and throws righthanded and has some strength, but his swing is also a little stiff.
34 1041 Philadelphia Phillies Pat Murray 1B Lewis-Clark State (Idaho)
39 1184 Atlanta Braves Stephen Foster LHP Lewis-Clark State (Idaho)
45 1360 Chicago Cubs Devon Austin C Coeur d'Alene (Idaho) HS
47 1427 Florida Marlins Travis Huber RHP JC of Southern Idaho
Southern Idaho's top prospect is 6-foot-3 righthander Huber, a freshman with a power arm out of the bullpen. He sits 88-90 mph and touches 92 with a sharp slider.
