17 521 Seattle Mariners Isaiah Yates OF Calif. $100,000
Yates didn't make the Northern California team for the Area Code Games, but had some helium this spring after putting together another solid season. There's a split camp on Yates. Scouts who like him really believe he has a feel to hit and believe he'll grow into some power. But it's easy for others to write him off because of what he doesn't do. He's a little undersized at 5-foot-11 and 185 pounds, but scouts notice that Yates' father is a lot bigger and think he may continue to grow and fill out. Yates bats righthanded and throws lefthanded, so he's limited to the outfield. He's an average runner with an above-average arm. Yates is not committed to a college and is considered signable.
