9 293 San Diego Padres Justin Hancock RHP Ill. $100,000
Righthander Justin Hancock was a pleasant surprise for scouts this spring, as his fastball sat in the low 90s and touched 95 mph after he worked at 87-90 mph as a freshman at Lincoln Trail CC. The 6-foot-3, 175-pounder has a quick arm and gets good angle on his pitches. He lacks a reliable secondary pitch and may be more skinny than projectable, but his arm strength is difficult to ignore. He'll attend Indiana State in 2012 if he doesn't turn pro.
