9 290 St. Louis Cardinals Tyler Mills RHP Mich. $100,000
Tyler Mills arrived at Michigan as an outfielder, redshirting in 2009 and getting just 11 at-bats last season. He opened scouts' eyes when he pitched two innings of relief in the season opener against Louisville, throwing a 94-96 mph fastball and an 84-87 mph slider. He threw 127 pitches in the third outing of his college career, however, and his stuff rarely was as sharp afterward. The 6-foot-2, 200-pounder worked more at 88-92 mph and with a shorter slider, and he couldn't hold his spot in the weekend rotation. Mills still looks like a position player trying to pitch, working out of the stretch and struggling to repeat a less-than-smooth delivery. He'll have to be a reliever in pro ball. He's a draft-eligible sophomore, which complicates his signability.
