32 988 Minnesota Twins Dylan Chavez LHP Calif.
American River JC has produced major league lefthanders Dallas Braden and Manny Parra, and its best prospect this year is another southpaw, Dylan Chavez. He's 6-foot-3, 190 pounds and his mechanics are a little herky-jerky, which adds some deception, and he doesn't throw anything straight. His 88-91 mph fastball has some run to it, and he mixes in a curveball and a changeup. Chavez tries to be too fine with his breaking ball and needs to learn the difference between a curveball that he wants to throw early in the count for a strike and one he wants to use when he's ahead to put hitters away. Chavez is committed to Mississippi.
