9 295 Toronto Blue Jays Jordan Leyland 1B Calif. $5,000
Leyland spent his first three seasons at UC Irvine, and he generated some draft buzz by flashing provocative raw power in the Cape Cod League as well as in the fall before his junior year. But Leyland hit just seven homers in three years at UCI and fell out of favor for his limited defensive skills, so he transferred to Azusa Pacific and put up monstrous numbers as a senior, hitting .419/.509/.802 with 22 homers, 19 doubles and 74 RBIs (though Azusa Pacific's home ballpark is a band box). The 6-foot-4, 235-pound Leyland has plus raw power from the right side, and some scouts think he has a chance to be a bat-first slugger in the Paul Goldschmidt mold. But he lacks athleticism and is no better than a fringe-average defender at first base, so he'll have to hit a lot.
