1 5 Drew Pomeranz LHP Mississippi Miss. $2,650,000
Pomeranz, whose brother Stuart was the Cardinals' second-round pick out of high school in 2003, nearly signed himself out of high school, as a Rangers 12th-rounder in 2007. The deal fell through and Pomeranz instead embarked on a stellar career with Ole Miss, averaging 11.8 strikeouts per nine innings over nearly 300 career innings. He nearly pitched the Rebels to Omaha himself in 2009 with a 16-strikeout complete-game win on two days' rest in the regional final, followed by a 10-strikeout, seven-inning, 146-pitch effort the next week in a super regional. He was no worse for wear last summer with Team USA or this spring, when the Rebels have used him more judiciously. He even was removed from a start at South Carolina in a 0-0 game after seven innings. Pomeranz still was slowed in May by a mild pectoral muscle strain, which caused his fastball velocity to dip into the upper 80s in a start against Arkansas. When he's right, Pomeranz sits 90-94 mph with his fastball and creates tough angles for the hitter, pitching to both sides of the plate. Coaches assert that he's nearly unhittable at the college level when he's throwing his hard curve for strikes, a 12-to-6 downer. His changeup is solid-average as well, as he has shown feel for using it. Control has been Pomeranz's biggest concern. He walked nine in a letdown showdown with Louisiana State's Anthony Ranaudo and was averaging nearly 4.5 walks per nine innings. He said he has fixed the problem with a more consistent takeaway with the ball when he begins his windup, keeping him a better rhythm.
2 55 LeVon Washington OF Chipola (Fla.) JC Fla. $1,200,000
Washington is one of the biggest enigmas of the last two drafts. Born in Guam to a military family, he entered 2009 as perhaps the fastest prep talent in the country and earned Johnny Damon comparisons for his hitting ability, speed and lack of arm strength. A shoulder injury left Washington with a 20 arm on the 20-80 scale, but the Rays looked past that and his Boras Corp. representation and drafted him 30th overall. Washington failed to sign; he also failed to qualify at Florida and wound up at Chipola JC. The Indians and Washington had disappointing seasons, and scouts still don't know quite what to make of him even after another year of evaluation. Athletic and quick, Washington hasn't shown the explosive speed he once did and doesn't run hard consistently. He also didn't run on fall scout day at Chipola, and some scouts now consider him more of an above-average runner than the top-of-the-scale grades he got in the fall of 2008. His arm has improved, to a 30 grade, but he did play the outfield and should be an average defender. Clubs that like Washington are buying the bat, however. Despite a spread-out stance in which he leans over the plate, he barrels up balls consistently, thanks to excellent hand-eye coordination and quick wrists. He's not a slap hitter and would likely have to change to a more conventional stance to hit for average power. Washington doesn't figure to go as high this year but still fits inside the first two rounds.
3 87 Tony Wolters SS Rancho Buena Vista HS, Vista, Calif. Calif. $1,350,000
Wolters, a San Diego recruit, was the MVP of the 2009 Aflac All-American game at Petco Park in San Diego, an impressive accomplishment considering the field was filled with elite prospects such as Jameson Taillon and Bryce Harper. Undersized (5-foot-10, 180 pounds) for any position on the field except the middle infield, Wolters almost certainly will shift to second base as a pro. He is a sensational defensive player, displaying remarkable playmaking ability, fluid actions and quick hands. Wolters has enough arm for shortstop, but his below-average speed and range make him a better fit on the right side of the infield. He's smart with strong leadership qualities and baseball instincts. Wolters' batting stance and hitting style are unique. He begins with the bat in a straight up and down posture, his hands placed near his right hip. His wide, spread-out stance in his lower half gives Wolters a bit of a Gateway Arch look. As a pitch approaches, Wolters moves his hands into a launch position and then lets the bat fly, using a pronounced sweeping upper-cut. At times, he appears to release his top hand off the bat a fraction too quickly, in effect swinging with one hand. While his swing and set-up are not traditional, it is hard to quibble with the results. He is a patient and savvy hitter, showing a knack for extending pitch counts as he waits for the ball he wants to attack. Wolters projects as an average to slightly above-average hitter with slightly below-average power.
4 120 Kyle Blair RHP San Diego Calif. $580,000
Blair was one of the top high school pitching prospects for the 2007 draft, and the Dodgers took him in the fifth round but did not sign him. His first two seasons at San Diego included bursts of brilliance, nagging injuries (shoulder inflammation in 2009 caused him to miss six weeks) and some struggles. In 2010, Blair has finally delivered on his promise. Earlier in his college career, Blair fought a tendency to overthrow, which caused his front side to pull down and open, lessening his velocity and command. Having improved his mechanics, Blair has also rediscovered his power slider. No longer hesitant to challenge hitters inside, Blair pounds the strike zone with a low to mid-90s fastball, complemented by a slider with depth. He has also added an overhand curve and firm changeup. Blair delivered a sensational one-hit, 15-strikeout masterpiece against Portland in his first May start and was finishing strong. He has matured and improved his fastball control, though he's still lacking in command. A free spirit who has traveled the world and worked with Habitat for Humanity to build homes in Honduras, Blair could still be a No. 3 starter.
5 150 Cole Cook RHP Pepperdine Calif. $299,000
Cook's father (known by his stage name Peter MacKenzie) is an actor who has appeared in dozens of Hollywood productions, including the movies "Major League: Back to the Minors" and "It's Complicated" with Meryl Streep. A high school teammate of Twins prospect David Bromberg, Cook was a 36th-round pick of the Mariners in 2007 but did not sign. He missed his freshman season at Pepperdine in 2008 after a freak accident when he broke his wrist while helping to roll up the field tarp on a rainy day. After Pepperdine ace Brett Hunter signed with the A's in 2008, Cook assumed the Friday starter's role in 2009 and 2010 and has performed well, moving to Saturdays of late after the emergence of lefty Matt Bywater. Cook's rangy 6-foot-6, 200-pound frame and low three-quarters delivery are reminiscent of the Weaver brothers. He fires a 91-93 mph fastball, with a changeup and a slurvy 77-78 mph breaking ball. His change is a decent pitch, and scouts agree that his weakness is his curve. It shows sharp break at times, but Cook has trouble controlling it, due in part to his low arm slot. A rare college pitcher with significant projectability, Cook will need to sharpen his mechanics, command and secondary pitches to succeed in pro ball. If he does that, he fits comfortably as a mid- to back-of-the-rotation starter.
6 180 Nick Bartolone SS Chabot (Calif.) JC Calif. $125,000
Bartolone, the MVP of the Golden Gate Conference this season, is the kind of player a true scout can fall in love with because he brings an intensity and energy to the game. He's a plus runner and a smooth fielder with excellent baseball instincts. The question is whether he'll hit enough. He's small (5-foot-10, 160 pounds) with an average arm and well below average power. His speed should help his batting average, but he profiles best as a utility player.
7 210 Robbie Aviles RHP Suffern (N.Y.) HS N.Y. $150,000
Scouts have been impressed with how Aviles has performed in the face of adversity. In late March, two of Aviles' Suffern High teammates were killed in a car accident. The two were honored before Suffern's game the following week, and Aviles took the mound and got the win. He struck out 11 in a perfect game in his next start, then whiffed 15 in a no-hitter in his subsequent outing. Aviles sat at 91-92 mph for most of his perfect game but reached back for 93-94 in the seventh inning. Aviles' 6-foot-4, 193-pound frame is athletic and projectable, and his arm action is loose, but he has a tendency to cut off his finish and needs to fine-tune his command. His curveball has good three-quarters break and projects as an average or better pitch. Some scouts say he flashes a plus changeup, but he rarely uses it against overmatched high school competition. Down the stretch, Aviles struggled to repeat his release point--especially on his breaking ball--and started working exclusively out of the stretch. Aviles needs some polish, but his upside is significant, and he is overwhelmingly regarded as the top prospect in the Northeast this year. A Florida signee, Aviles is a supplemental first-round or second-round talent and is considered signable.
8 240 Alex Lavisky C St. Edward HS, Lakewood, Ohio Ohio $1,000,000
Lavisky and batterymate Stetson Allie could be the highest-drafted pair of high school teammates in the 2010 draft. Allie has pitched his way into the upper half of the first round, while Lavisky's all-around ability and makeup have created interest as early as the sandwich round. More likely, he'll go around the third. He's a strong, 6-foot-1, 210-pounder with plus power from the right side of the plate. He has a sound swing, though there are potential issues with his timing and bat speed that may hamper his ability to hit for a high average. Because Allie has an electric and sometimes erratic arm, Lavisky has gotten plenty of experience receiving pro-quality stuff and has developed into a quality receiver. He has slightly above-average arm strength and makes accurate throws, though he could stand to shorten his release. St. Edward's starting quarterback before he decided to give up football last fall, Lavisky is a better athlete than most catchers and has strong leadership skills. He's not afraid to get on the talented Allie when needed. Lavisky has committed to Georgia Tech and will be a draft-eligible sophomore in 2012 if he attends college.
9 270 Jordan Cooper RHP Wichita State Kan. $125,000
Cooper was as hot as any college pitcher in May. He struck out 14 in a complete-game shutout of Missouri State and set a Wichita State record with a 32 1/3-inning scoreless streak. He ranked as the top high school prospect in Kansas two years ago, and though he has grown an inch and added 25 pounds since then, the 6-foot-2, 215-pounder still stands out more for his polish and feel than for his overpowering stuff. He gets outs with an 89-91 mph sinker, tight slider and good changeup. He's athletic, repeats his delivery easily and fills the strike zone. Cooper could have been a fourth- or fifth-round pick out of high school had he been signable in that range, and should go a round or two higher this year as a draft-eligible sophomore.
10 300 Tyler Holt OF Florida State Fla. $500,000
Two of the nation's most successful college baseball programs, Stanford and Florida State, annually frustrate scouts with their approaches to hitting, which scouts say work with metal bats but not with wood. Holt is one of the latest examples. His open stance and deep crouch don't get him into an ideal position to load up his hands and drive the ball, but for now he stays balanced and uses his hands to spray line drives from pole to pole. He has sacrificed some batting average in trying to hit for more power as a junior, but scouts still project his power as below-average. His offensive profile fits best in center field. He has been one of college baseball's best basestealers over the last two seasons (59-for-65 overall) and has drawn more than 150 career walks, making him an outstanding tablesetter. He's an above-average runner, and he'll have to maintain his speed to have the range to stick in center field. Holt's instincts on both sides of the ball help him play above his tools. He's a bigger, stronger version of his Seminoles predecessor, Shane Robinson, who reached the majors with St. Louis in 2009 and is in his third season in Triple-A.
11 330 Hunter Jones OF Lakewood (Calif.) HS Calif. $225,000
Third baseman Jones is the son of Tracy Jones, a former big leaguer selected in the first round of the 1983 draft by the Reds out of Loyola Marymount. Like his dad, Hunter is a multi-tool talent and is committed to Loyola Marymount. With an athletic 6-foot-2, 195-pound frame, Jones has a powerful arm and well-above-average speed--4.0 to 4.10 seconds from the right side of the plate to first base with a clean start. His hands and actions aren't quite smooth enough for the hot corner, but a future move to the outfield should suit him well. Concerns about Jones' bat will move him down in the draft. He has bat speed but often drags the barrel through the zone, resulting in weakly hit balls toward the right side of the diamond. If his bat comes around, Jones could be a first-round candidate in 2013.
12 360 Tyler Cannon 3B Virginia Va.
Cannon was Virginia's top hitting prospect last year, but he didn't sign as a 41st-round pick of the Pirates and returned to finish his degree. He can hit line drives with gap power from both sides of the plate, though he's in just his second year of switch-hitting. He was batting .340/.420/.505 this spring with 17 doubles and 35 RBIs. He's a good defensive shortstop for college, but he can't play there every day at the next level. Scouts see him as a useful utilityman who can play all four infield positions, and he has enough arm strength that he could get a look behind the plate. Cannon will go out much higher this year as a senior sign.
13 390 Michael Goodnight RHP Houston Texas $315,000
Houston's annual early-season Minute Maid Classic always draws a flock of scouts, making it a perfect springboard for college players with draft aspirations to boost their stock. Goodnight seized that opportunity, working seven shutout innings to beat Texas and potential first-rounder Brandon Workman 1-0. He hadn't built off that outing, however, going 6-7, 5.45 in 15 regular season starts. Against Texas, Goodnight maintained an 88-92 mph fastball for seven innings, touched 94 and backed it up with a good, 80-82 mph slider. He showed similar stuff throughout the spring, but his feel for pitching seemed to come and go. He fell behind in the count too often and didn't pitch down in the zone enough, leading to 85 hits and 50 walks in 79 innings, and his stuff should play better than that. He's built for durability at 6-foot-4 and 215 pounds and has two potential plus pitches, yet Goodnight might wind up as a reliever because of his inconsistent command and lack of feel for a changeup. A two-time district MVP as a high school quarterback, he has good athleticism and a clean delivery. He's eligible for the draft as a 21-year-old sophomore, and it's unclear whether he'd sign for fifth-round money, which is what he's expected to command.
14 420 Diego Seastrunk C Rice Texas
15 450 Ben Holmes LHP Clackamas (Ore.) HS Ore.
The best high school player in Oregon is projectable lefthander Wetzler. He's 6-foot-2 and 180 pounds and has touched 90 mph this year, with an average changeup and both a slider and curveball. His talent would merit a selection in the fifth or sixth round, but he's considered a tough sign away from Oregon State and could slide.
16 480 Cody Allen RHP St. Petersburg (Fla.) JC Fla.
17 510 Aaron Siliga OF Oceanside (Calif.) HS Calif.
Outfielder Siliga is threatening to eclipse the hitting records set at Oceanside High by Matt Cerda, a fourth-round pick of the Cubs in 2008. Similar to Cerda, Siliga is a compact and powerfully built lefthanded hitter who possesses bat speed and power. Siliga first came to the attention of scouts and recruiters with a terrific wood-bat BP session prior to a scout ball game in Orange County last fall. Considered signable, Siliga will probably attend Palomar JC if he goes to school.
18 540 Chase Burnette 1B Georgia Tech Ga.
Burnette is more athletic, with average tools across the board and an arm that could grade as above-average. He was batting .350/.398/.664 but is viewed as too aggressive for his own good offensively and profiles as a fourth outfielder, complete with the lefthanded bat.
19 570 Mark Brown OF King HS, Detroit Mich. $125,000
20 600 Burch Smith RHP Howard (Texas) JC Texas
21 630 Owen Dew RHP Central Florida Fla.
In fact, righthander Dew, a sinker/slider pitcher with some projection left in his tall, lean body, will challenge Duffy for being the first Golden Knight off the board, even though opponents hit .318 off him. His fastball has average velocity and good sinking life.
22 660 Nate Striz RHP North Carolina N.C.
Injury-prone righty Striz, an unsigned fifth-round pick out of high school, still touches 94 mph at times, even coming off shoulder surgery. He hasn't earned innings this spring even though the Tar Heels' bullpen struggled all year.
23 690 Tony Dischler RHP Louisiana State-Eunice JC La. $255,000
Dischler got strafed for a 9.64 ERA in 19 innings at Louisiana-Monroe as a freshman in 2009, but he caught the eye of scouts with a strong summer in the New York Collegiate League. He opted to transfer to a junior college to become eligible for the 2010 draft, ultimately choosing Louisiana State-Eunice over Chipola (Fla.). Dischler quickly became the ace a Bengals team that would win its third Division II juco national championship, touching 96-97 mph in the fall and working at 91-94 mph this spring. He has a lean 6-foot-3, 198-pound frame and an arm that generates velocity with ease. The key for Dischler will be refining his secondary pitches, and his success doing so will determine if he's ultimately a starter or a reliever. His 82-84 mph slider has depth at times, but it's more often flat. His changeup similarly has promise but lacks consistency. He has committed to Louisiana-Lafayette for 2011 but is expected to turn pro as a third- to fifth-rounder.
24 720 Andrew Triggs RHP Southern California Calif.
Righthander Triggs needed Tommy John surgery as a prep senior and missed the 2008 season, but he rebounded nicely in 2009 by posting a 5-3, 3.96 mark for Southern California. After a solid summer in the New England Collegiate League last year, Triggs had a strong fall and was poised for a breakout season. Instead, he got off to a brutal start in 2010, causing his draft stock to plummet. He eventually regained his spot as USC's Friday night starter and finished the season 2-7, 3.95 with 62 strikeouts and 21 walks in 71 innings, numbers not terribly different than his sophomore season. Triggs' repertoire includes a 90-92 mph four-seam fastball that can touch 94, a changeup, curveball and slider. His most effective pitch is his mid- to high-80s two-seam fastball, which starts above a hitter's hands and suddenly drops down and under his swing. He gave up just five home runs in 145 college innings. Triggs' 6-foot-3, 210-pound build and stuff permit him to fit any one of three roles as a pro: mid-rotation starter, closer or most likely, a set-up reliever.
25 750 Jay Gause RHP West Brunswick HS, Northwest Shallotte, N.C. N.C.
Gause started well and has a 6-foot-2, 215-pound frame that produces three solid-average pitches when he's at his best. His fastball has touched 94 and sits at 89-92 mph when he's right. He has shown the hand speed to spin a breaking ball, with a curve that has flashed above-average, and he has a decent changeup. Gause's performance and stuff suffered after a mid-April start when he reportedly exceeded 150 pitches. He's a North Carolina State recruit, and scouts weren't sure what to make of his stock as the draft approached because he hadn't been at his best after his long outing.
26 780 Ben Lively RHP Gulf Breeze (Fla.) HS Fla.
27 810 Jeff Schaus OF Clemson S.C.
Schaus has been a middle-of-the-order force since his freshman season thanks to a solid, strong swing. His actions are a bit stiff and he lacks great athleticism. His patient approach, average hitting ability and average power will have to be his calling card.
28 840 DeMarcus Tidwell OF Yavapai (Ariz.) JC 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.
29 870 Kirby Bellow LHP Nederland (Texas) HS Texas
30 900 Taylor Hill RHP Vanderbilt Tenn.
Vanderbilt has plenty of players who could be drafted high this year, if teams think they are signable. Chief among them is junior righthander Taylor Hill, who backtracked as a sophomore after earning a rotation spot as a freshman. He bounced back this year by improving his fastball velocity and command (cutting his walk rate in half from his freshman season). He touched plenty of 93s this season and sat at 89-92 mph. His heater has sink and boring action, and he maintains his velocity. Hill has picked up a split-finger fastball to help him get strikeouts, as his low-80s slider has power but fringy movement. He also throws a changeup. Hill is homer-prone because he pitches off his fastball so much. He profiles as a durable innings-eater and could go off the board as high as the fifth round.
31 930 David Goforth RHP Mississippi Miss.
Goforth is Ole Miss' hardest thrower, reaching 95 mph and sitting at 92-94 even as a starter. At 5-foot-11, 191 pounds, the redshirt sophomore has fringy secondary stuff and wasn't fooling anyone this spring, as evidenced by his 1-5, 8.41 numbers. Opponents where hitting .363 with 15 home runs in just 56 innings.
32 960 Michael Palazzone RHP Georgia Ga.
33 990 Logan Thompson 2B Palm Beach (Fla.) CC Fla.
34 1020 Kyle Petter LHP El Camino (Calif.) JC Calif.
Coached by former Brigham Young ace Nate Fernley, El Camino JC reached its first state final four berth since 1951. Drafted twice previously, lefthander Petter was the team's top player. The 5-foot-10, 180-pounder hit eight regular-season homers and was 11-0, 1.74 entering the postseason. Fitter and stronger than in previous seasons, Petter tosses an 88-89 mph fastball that can touch 91 and an over-the-top, near 12-to-6 curveball. Committed to Division II Lynn (Fla.), Petter is reportedly signable.
35 1050 Ken Ferrer RHP Elon N.C.
Righty Ferrer wound up winning nine games for Elon, second only behind ace Jimmy Reyes, and has one of the area's better fastballs, sitting 90-94 mph even in starting roles. His secondary stuff remains unrefined, and he didn't have a pitch to put hitters away. His control is also lacking, and he hit 15 batters in just 70 innings.
36 1080 Rye Davis RHP Western Kentucky Ky.
Righthander Davis nearly lost his right eye and broke several bones in his face when he was hit by a line drive in a preseason scrimmage a year ago. After missing all of 2009, he has returned this spring and touched 94 mph at times with his fastball. The 6-foot-5, 250-pounder normally sits at 89-92 mph and lacks life on his fastball and slider because he drops his elbow in his maximum-effort delivery. His command can get shaky at times, too. Teams may wait another year on the draft-eligible sophomore, but his size and arm strength have attracted interest.
37 1110 Trey Griffin OF King HS, Lithonia, Ga. Ga.
Another outfielder caught in the state's glut of talent was Trey Griffin. Griffin's older brother Xavier Avery was the Orioles' second-round pick in 2008, but Avery is more athletic and bats lefthanded, while Griffin is a righthanded hitter. Griffin has exhibited some of his brother's tools but lacks his speed and will have to move to a corner spot in pro ball. An Oklahoma State signee, Griffin has quick hands and loft power potential, if he can improve his plate discipline and feel for the barrel. He plays with energy but generally didn't fare well in comparison to more toolsy peers in Georgia this spring.
38 1140 Tyler Pearson C Monterey HS, Lubbock, Texas Texas
Tyler Pearson has the best catch-and-throw skills among Texas high school catchers. His bat needs a lot of work, but teams would be interested in him now if they didn't consider him unsignable because of his commitment to Rice. The hard-nosed 6-foot-1, 185-pounder also played running back for Monterey High's football team, which is coached by his father Todd.
39 1170 Bobby Wahl RHP West Springfield HS, Springfield, Va. Va.
Coming into the spring season after traveling the showcase circuit in 2009, Wahl had the potential to go in the first four rounds. But he has been inconsistent this spring and his stock has taken a hit. He came out of the gates slowly before his velocity started to pick up, but then he got hit just above his pitching elbow by a line drive. The injury wasn't serious--just a bruise--but he took extra time off as a precaution. Wahl showed low 90s velocity at times this spring, but only sporadically. On other days he was 84-89 mph with a slowed delivery. When he's right, Wahl has a driving delivery with good extension. At USA Baseball's Tournament of Stars last summer, several scouts said his his delivery reminded them of a taller Roy Oswalt (Wahl is 6-foot-3, 195 pounds). His fastball sits at 90-92 mph and touches 93 when he's right. He has confidence in his slider, which is a good pitch with hard break. He also shows a changeup and curveball, but both pitches need work. Unless a team drafts him on the form he showed last summer, Wahl will probably honor his Mississippi commitment.
40 1200 Jordan Casas OF Long Beach State Calif.
41 1230 Brian Heere OF Kansas Kan.
Heere, a redshirt junior who turned down the Red Sox as a 48th-round pick a year ago, uses his plus speed to get on base and go get balls in center field. He doesn't have a lot of power or arm strength.
42 1260 Aaron Fields 2B Wright State Ohio
43 1290 Chris Waylock SS Cary-Grove HS, Cary, Ill. Ill.
44 1320 Brock Stassi LHP Nevada Nev.
45 1350 Frank DeJiulio RHP Daytona Beach (Fla.) CC Fla.
46 1380 Justin Haley RHP Sierra (Calif.) JC Calif.
Sierra JC righthander Haley was a largely unknown out of Bella Vista High in Fair Oaks, Calif., but at 6-foot-5, 230 pounds he sure is noticeable. He drew a lot of attention from D-I programs late in the spring, and scouts have peeked in as well. He has an average fastball that peaks around 93 mph, and as an 18-year-old freshman, he has plenty of development ahead of him.
47 1410 Luke Malloy RHP Alamo Heights HS, San Antonio Texas
48 1440 C.T. Bradford OF Pace (Fla.) HS Fla.
49 1470 Mark Bradley OF Central Arizona JC Ala.
50 1500 Henry Dunn OF Binghamton N.Y.
Dunn packs athleticism and strength into a 5-foot-7, 175-pound frame. He followed up his good summer in the New England Collegiate League with a solid spring, hitting .344/.408/.626 with 10 homers, 51 RBIs and 13 stolen bases. Dunn's plus-plus speed plays well in center field, where he has good range and instincts. He's a line-drive hitter with occasional pop, but he'll have little home run power at the next level. He tends to get pull-happy and could benefit by learning to use the opposite field better.
