14 440 New York Mets Chris Flexen RHP Calif. $374,400
Still just 17 years old, Flexen already has an impressive body at 6-foot-3 and 210 pounds. He sits in the 90-91 mph range and tops out at 93 mph. Mostly a two-pitch guy right now, he scrapped his curveball in favor of a slider this spring and it shows flashes of being a plus pitch with nasty life at times. Flexen has some effort to his delivery and scouts say his arm action could be smoothed out, but they love his competitive fire on the mound. Flexen could be pushed up draft boards because it will likely take second-round money to buy him away from his Arizona State commitment.
