1s 52 St. Louis Cardinals Patrick Wisdom 3B Calif. $678,790
While most scouts like Wisdom's defense and makeup, this spring has raised questions about how much he'll hit. Scouts who believe in him point to his track record, which includes a .351/.423/.582 line last year and a league-leading seven home runs in the Alaska League last summer, when he was the league's No. 2 prospect. They see a solid hitter with above-average power. This year, however, he was hitting just .254/.380/.435. Scouts who don't believe in Wisdom don't think he'll have enough bat to profile at third base, where he's a strong defender with above-average arm strength. He is an average runner who moves well for his size, and a great teammate with an outstanding work ethic. Wisdom played some catcher in high school, and a team may ask him to give that another shot.
2 84 San Francisco Giants Martin Agosta RHP Calif. $612,500
Agosta pitched to Andrew Susac at Jesuit High (Carmichael, Calif.) before going on to have a successful career at St. Mary's, where he'll finish among the school's career wins and strikeouts leaders. He has won nine games this season, the Gaels' first nine-game winner since Toby Foreman won 10 in 1991, though he has been up and down from a scouting perspective. He showed above-average velocity in the fall, but has mostly pitched in the 90-92 mph range this spring. When he does reach back for 94-96, he usually leaves the ball up in the zone. His main secondary pitch is a cutter, and he mixes in a slider. He would need to add a changeup to profile as a back-of-the-rotation starter. That's why some scouts prefer him as a reliever in pro ball, where he can air out his fastball for an inning or two and just focus on his cutter and slider. Agosta has an average build at 6-foot-1 and 178 pounds, the ball comes out of his hand easily and his fastball shows good life. He has good control, but still needs to work on his command.
7 240 St. Louis Cardinals Kyle Barraclough RHP Calif. $65,000
Barraclough had a solid four-year career at St. Mary's. He passed Tom Candiotti to rank second all-time for St. Mary's career strikeouts. Barraclough has a strong build at 6-foot-3 and 220 pounds. His fastball sits in the 91-93 mph range and touches 95 and he mixes in an above-average splitter that he uses as a changeup and an average slider. Barraclough smoothed out his delivery this year, but his control is below average, as he walked 47 batters over 79 innings. Barraclough will likely get a chance to start in pro ball, but profiles best in the bullpen. He was a 40th-round pick by the Twins last year, but is expected to go much higher this year, possibly even inside the top 10 rounds as a senior willing to cut a deal and give a team more spending flexibility.
