3 99 Baltimore Orioles Adrian Marin SS Fla. $481,100
Marin would be a key recruit for a Miami program that needs an infusion of talent, and scouts had him pegged as a "good college player" until he smoked one of the nation's hardest throwers, Las Vegas two-way phenom Joey Gallo, at the National High School Invitational in Cary, N.C., early in the spring. That encounter raised Marin's profile with national evaluators, and area scouts already liked him as a heady player with no glaring weakness. Marin still has scouts trying to figure out his future impact with his bat. His hitting mechanics aren't ideal and he has swing-and-miss tendencies, and his below-average power means he'll either have to be a leadoff hitter or hit at the bottom of an order. Marin's best present tool is his speed, which is at least slightly above-average. He's a steady defender with average actions and shortstop and an average arm. Marin had early buzz to go in the first three rounds.
