4 141 Chicago White Sox Brandon Brennan RHP Calif. $320,800
Brennan had a strong season as a starter for a powerhouse Orange Coast team. His durable 6-foot-4, 220-pound frame gives him a chance to be an innings-eating starter, though he might fit better in relief as a professional. His fastball generally sits around 89-91 mph with solid sink, though he has run it up to 93-94 at times this spring. His slider is inconsistent, sometimes showing decent three-quarters tilt and flashing average or slightly better on occasion, but more often resembles a below-average spinner. He seldom uses his changeup, which has a chance to be serviceable. Brennan is most effective when he stays tall and maintains his high-three-quarters arm slot, but he has a tendency to get rotational in his delivery and drop his slot, causing his stuff to flatten out.
13 404 Chicago Cubs Bijan Rademacher OF Calif. $100,000
A Cal State Fullerton bounceback, Rademacher had a strong spring with the bat for Orange Coast, and he is a legitimate prospect as both a pitcher and position player. While he has pitched sparingly for OCC, he is most intriguing to pro scouts on the mound thanks to his 92-94 mph fastball. He has little feel for pitching at this stage and needs to develop secondary stuff as well as command. As a position player, he has athleticism and strength in his lefthanded swing, but his arm is his most intriguing asset. Rademacher is committed to Oral Roberts.
17 530 New York Mets Stefan Sabol C Calif. $100,000
Sabol's physicality and upside made him a high-profile prospect coming out of high school, but he elected to go to Oregon, where a broken bone his left hand spoiled his freshman season. He transferred to Orange Coast for his sophomore year but was sidelined by a broken hamate bone. His performance was pedestrian when he returned to action, but his raw tools haven't gone away. Though he saw some action behind the plate this spring, the overwhelming scouting consensus is that he lacks the agility, hands and footwork to catch. He figures to find a home at an outfield corner in pro ball, and he is a solid runner for his size. He has average or even slightly better raw arm strength, but it isn't particularly playable in games because of his long arm action and inaccuracy. Sabol's bat and power will have to carry him. He hasn't developed as a hitter, but he does have pitch recognition and plenty of bat speed, which leads to plus raw power. Unlocking that power in games will be key. Sabol is committed to Oklahoma State.
20 619 Oakland Athletics Boog Powell OF Calif.
25 760 Minnesota Twins Joel Licon SS Calif.
33 1021 Boston Red Sox Chris Carlson OF Calif.
One of the catalysts for Orange Coast's powerhouse team this spring, Carlson is a small and instinctive player, and his slightly above-average speed plays up on the basepaths and in the outfield. He has surprising strength in his lefthanded swing, given his 5-foot-10 build. Carlson's knack for making contact and advanced baseball skills give him a shot, but his size and modest raw tools mean he'll have to prove himself at every level. He is a New Mexico State signee.
