Adam Stern, of
Nebraska


East Carolina shortstop Lee Delfino is considered a slightly better prospect, but Stern could pass him as the first Canadian selected. Both figure to go near the fourth round. Stern is compared to Lenny Dykstra because he's a 5-foot-10, 178-pound sparkplug, but he lacks Dykstra's pop. He hit just .297 entering NCAA tournament play, the second-lowest average among Nebraska's regulars, but did bat .287 with wood in the Cape Cod League last summer. He has center-field range, the best outfield arm in the Big 12 Conference and is a plus runner.
