9 278 Cleveland Indians Jordan Smith 3B Minn. $125,000
Third baseman Jordan Smith has hit .420/.480/.722 in two seasons at St. Cloud State, an NCAA Division II program. He has a big league body (6-foot-4, 210 pounds) and plenty of strength in his lefthanded stroke, though scouts think his swing is long and wonder if he'll catch up to good velocity. After a good summer in the Northwoods League in 2010, he'll try to prove himself against even tougher competition in the Cape Cod League this year. An outfielder as a freshman, Smith moved to third base this spring but may lack the first-step quickness to play there in pro ball. He has solid arm strength and instincts, but below-average speed. He's a draft-eligible sophomore.
