4 140 New York Mets Branden Kaupe SS Baldwin HS, Wailuku, Hawaii $225,000
Kaupe may be the shortest player in this year's draft. He's listed at 5-foot-7, but some believe he's actually a few inches shorter. Kaupe's best tool is his speed. He's a plus runner and may even be a 70 on the 20-80 scouting scale. Kaupe fits best defensively at second base and has good hands and solid-average arm strength. A switch-hitter, Kaupe has excellent bat control and strike-zone awareness. He will be a singles hitter, but does have some gap power and pullside loft. With a commitment to Central Arizona JC, Kaupe was considered signable and should agree to a below-slot deal.
20 638 Philadelphia Phillies Matt Sisto RHP Hawaii
A senior, Sisto sits in the 85-89 mph range and fills up the strike zone with four pitches. He has a workhorse build at 6-foot-5 and 230 pounds and made 55 starts over his college career. His secondary stuff needs improvement, but he shows a solid changeup, good work ethic and competitive spirit.
37 1143 Arizona Diamondbacks Breland Almadova OF Hawaii
Almadova is the area's best prospect, with an athletic, muscular build at 6-foot-1 and 185 pounds. His quick-twitch athleticism makes him an above-average runner and he plays tremendous defense in center field. He hit well with wood last summer in the West Coast League, though he had a disappointing season for the Rainbows, hitting just .267/.383/.356. Scouts think it likely he'll return for his senior year.
