9 299 New York Yankees Zach Arneson RHP Lewis-Clark State (Idaho) $20,000
In Idaho, Lewis-Clark State is prominent, as always. Righthander Zach Arneson transferred in from Cal State Bakersfield after the Giants made him a 21st-round pick last year. His brother Jamie played in the Reds system for three seasons. Arneson, a 6-foot-2, 185-pound senior, spent most of the season in the bullpen and sat in the 92-94 mph range, topping out at 96. He'll remain in the bullpen as a pro, as his arm action is a little stiff and his secondary stuff--a mid-80s cutter that he commands well--is fringy.
20 617 Detroit Tigers Tyler Barrett LHP Lewis-Clark State (Idaho)
35 1074 Texas Rangers Cy Sneed RHP Twin Falls (Idaho) HS
High school righthander Cy Sneed has a tall, slender frame and has been mostly in the 86-89 mph range this spring. He just doesn't have a lot of strength yet, so he'll likely wind up at Dallas Baptist. A team that likes his arm speed and projection, however, might try to bring him in now. His older brother Zeb has been up to 95 mph this year as a sophomore at Northwest Nazarene in Idaho and should be a draft prospect next year.
39 1183 Florida Marlins Travis Huber RHP JC of Southern Idaho
Huber was a 47th-round draft pick by the Marlins last year, when he was sitting 91-93 mph out of the bullpen. He moved into the rotation this year and was down to 88-90, but he can spin a tight curveball and has a hard slider he uses as an out pitch. He'll likely return to the bullpen as a pro. If he doesn't sign, he is committed to Nebraska.
