8 277 New York Yankees Taylor Dugas OF Ala. $10,000
Dugas had a storied career at Alabama, becoming the school's all-time hits leader. He was an eighth-round pick of the Cubs last year, and the 5-foot-8, 175-pound former All-American hit .360 in four seasons. He's a contact hitter with little power to speak of and is a 55 runner on the 20-80 scale. He has some similarities to Sam Fuld but doesn't have as much defensive ability.
16 508 San Francisco Giants Ian Gardeck RHP Ala.
The University of Alabama's top prospect was supposed to be Gardeck, a juco transfer and unsigned eighth-round pick of the White Sox last June. His fastball has reached 98 mph and he's flashed a plus-plus slider, but neither of those were in evidence this spring. He was tough to scout as he didn't throw enough strikes to earn consistent innings for the Crimson Tide, even on a 21-34 team. He threw just 12 innings, walking 12 and striking out 16, and got just seven outs in Southeastern Conference play while walking four.
