16 482 Pittsburgh Pirates Eric Skoglund LHP Fla.
Central Florida's revived program was headed for regionals and could get a further lift from incoming recruits such as Eric Skoglund, a lefthander with a body that resembles that of former Florida Gulf Coast ace Chris Sale, and shortstop Tommy Williams. Skoglund's stuff was short most of the spring, but he touched 91 mph in early May and held his velocity for five innings. He has an easy delivery and clean arm, and a feel for spinning the ball. A late thumb injury and tough signability might drive him down draft boards.
