Matt Coenen, lhp
Charleston Southern


Coenen figures to go in the third or fourth round, more because he's a 6-foot-6, 230-pound lefthander who pitched well in the Cape Cod League last summer than because of what he showed this spring. He did have 100 strikeouts in 90 innings, but he also allowed 109 hits and went 5-7, 5.60. Scouts think he has the frame to consistently throw in the low 90s, but he was worked hard and was down to 86-88 at season's end. He has a hard cutter he works inside against righthanders, a pitch that was very effective against wood bats on the Cape.
