11 339 Chicago Cubs Shawon Dunston Jr. OF Calif. $1,275,000
Shawon Dunston Jr.'s father was the No. 1 overall pick in the 1982 draft, played 18 years in the big leagues and is a special assistant for the Giants. While the elder Dunston was drafted out of high school, however, most scouts believe his son would be better off going to Vanderbilt, where he's a key recruit. Dunston has a slender, 6-foot-2, 175-pound frame, and it's obvious that his best baseball is in front of him, and he's surprisingly raw. He is an above-average runner, which helps both on the bases and in center field. Unlike his father, he swings from the left side of the plate. As Dunston fills out, he could grow into gap power and be an average hitter. Scouts love his speed, passion for the game and bloodlines, but they may not want to buy him out of school at this point.
