Jake Dittler, rhp
Green Valley HS, Henderson, Nev.


Like Billy Paganetti, Dittler commanded early interest that cooled when he missed four weeks in the middle of the season with a strained muscle attached to his elbow. He missed another start later in the season when the soreness returned. When he's right, the 6-foot-3, 200-pound righthander has a live arm and three solid pitches: a fastball consistently at 93 mph, a spike curve and a circle change. If he shows he's healthy, he could go as early as the second round.
