9 305 Milwaukee Brewers Alex Lavandero RHP Fla. $125,000
Lavandero has a projectable pitcher's body at 6-foot-3, 180 pounds, and the Florida Atlantic recruit has solid athleticism. Some scouts subscribe to the theory that few Florida pitchers are projectable because of the Sunshine State's year-round play; Lavandero's frame, clean arm action and athleticism could make him an exception. He has some effort in his delivery that could lead to improved velocity if he becomes more efficient. He stays tall in his delivery, has touched 91-92 mph and generally sits 87-90 mph. He also throws a breaking ball and a changeup and has some feel for pitching.
