Josh Baker, rhp
Memorial HS, Houston


Baker may have the best bloodlines in the draft. His father Johnny spent five seasons as an NFL linebacker, his uncle Frank was a big league infielder for four years, his brother Jacob was an outfielder in the Royals system before retiring this spring, and his brother-in-law Lance Berkman is a rising star with the Astros. Josh is a gifted athlete in his own right. He has a strong body (6-foot-4, 205 pounds), solid fastball (89-91 mph) and a plus splitter. He's a tough competitor who hasn't begun to approach his ceiling. He's another potential draft-eligible sophomore for 2003, in this case committed to Alabama.
