25 748 Florida Marlins Robert Taylor C Ark.
Catcher/outfielder Robert Taylor might have been drafted in 2007 had a bone bruise on his left hand not restricted him from playing much behind the plate. He has good size (6-foot-2, 210 pounds) and righthanded power, though it remains to be seen if he can stick at catcher. His receiving skills are decent and he has some arm strength, but his throwing mechanics are long. He has enough athleticism to try the outfield corners or third base if catching doesn't work out.
47 1399 Kansas City Royals Steve Gilgenbach LHP Ark.
Steve Gilgenbach lacks consistency, but he's a 6-foot-3, 220-pound lefty who pitches at 90-92 mph on his best days. He's still fine-tuning his delivery, his command and his slurvy slider.
