15 474 Texas Rangers Jerad Eickhoff RHP Ill. $150,000
Righthander Jerad Eickhoff used a heavy 88-91 mph sinker that touches 93 and a newly developed cutter to rank among the national juco strikeout leaders with 116 in 89 innings. He has good size at 6-foot-4 and 195 pounds, though he needs to work on maintaining his velocity deeper into games and improving his secondary pitches. A 46th-round pick of the Cubs last year, he has committed to Western Kentucky.
