2 62 Oakland Athletics Bruce Maxwell C/1B Ala. $700,000
Maxwell hit his way into one of Division III's top prospects. The lefthanded hitter has strength in his 6-foot-2, 230-pound body and surprising feel for hitting. He lacks athleticism but has arm strength. He's caught enough in college to merit a look behind the plate, but scouts doubt his agility back there. He may wind up as a slugging first baseman.
