Joel Hanrahan, rhp
Norwalk Community HS; Center Point, Iowa

It's rare for an Iowa high school player to be considered for the early rounds--much less the first round. The state does not play a spring schedule, meaning crosscheckers rarely get to see players in a competitive environment. The 6-foot-4, 205-pound Hanrahan established himself as a potential high pick last summer and fall when his fastball was clocked from 90-94. His velocity has dropped marginally but scouts see the makings of three average pitches.
