4 143 San Diego Padres Cody Hebner RHP Wash. $200,000
Although he didn't go to the same school as Tim Lincecum, Hebner's high school coach in Washington was Glen Walker, who also coached Lincecum. Hebner was mainly a shortstop in high school, but he has been electric on the mound for Green River. Like Lincecum, Hebner is undersized at 6 feet and 160 pounds. He doesn't have a delivery like Lincecum's, though it is unorthodox as he brings his knee up to the brim of his cap at his balance point. Hebner has incredible arm speed and has hit 97 mph this year, though he's more typically in the 90-94 range. He has been better than he was last year and put up great numbers, but pitch consistency has been an issue for Hebner. His slider does show flashes of being an above-average pitch, as does his changeup. Scouts believe he has a chance to start because of his athleticism, the movement on his fastball, his relatively fresh arm and the potential for three plus pitches. Hebner turned down a chance to pitch for Coastal Carolina this year and returned to Green River. If he doesn't sign, he will go to Arizona State.
