|Christian Montgomery entered the year with a first-round grade from the Major League Scouting Bureau, but scouts considered him the second-best righthander at Lawrence Central High as the draft approached. Montgomery created great expectations last summer, when he displayed a 90-95 mph fastball and an upper-70s curveball while on the showcase circuit. He touched 94 mph in his first start of 2011 but pitched in the mid-80s and topped out at 89 for most of the spring. He doesn't throw quality strikes with his fastball, and his breaking ball is now below-average. Scouts don't like his work ethic and worry that his 6-foot-1, 240-pound frame could get softer. He hasn't committed to a four-year school and is ticketed for Chipola (Fla.) JC.
|Jared Ruxer is a 6-foot-3, 185-pounder with a better body, delivery and makeup. Ruxer has good life on an 88-91 mph fastball that tops out at 93. He also has a hard curveball but doesn't command it as well as his heater. He could be tough to sign away from Louisville.
