Kip Bouknight has gained most of the publicity for South Carolina this spring, but scouts have paid more attention to the 6-foot-7, 235-pound Bauer. He could be a late first-rounder, or more likely an early second-round selection. At his size, he has obvious velocity--up to 93-94 mph--and a good downward plane. He also throws three pitches for strikes, an impressive feat for his size. In fact, his command is so good that he went a stretch of 30 innings this spring without walking a batter. Entering regional play, he was 12-1, 3.07 with 33 walks and 90 strikeouts in 111 innings.
