Bobby Crosby, ss
Long Beach State


Crosby didn't have a breakthrough season with the bat but still ranks as one of the best shortstops in the draft. He's projected to go in the first round, though 10-12 spots lower than originally thought. The son of former big league infielder and Diamondbacks scout Ed Crosby, he put a lot of pressure on himself early and struggled offensively. He picked up his pace in the second half and entered regional play batting .343 with eight homers, second on the club. At 6-foot-3 and 190 pounds, he's long and loose like a young Cal Ripken, and most scouts believe he has the tools to remain at shortstop. He can pick it and throw it with the best.
