14 452 Tampa Bay Rays Chris Kirsch LHP Pa. $100,000
Kirsch has had two chances to sign already, as a pop-up prospect out of high school in Pennsylvania and after his first year with Lackawanna, so scouts wonder about his desire to play pro ball but can't turn away from his potential. He has arm strength that can get his fastball up to 92 mph from the left side and he has some projection remaining in his 6-foot-2, 185-pound frame. He also throws a curveball, slider and changeup, all showing the potential to be average pitches.
