5 165 San Diego Padres Anthony Bass RHP Mich. $166,000
With Zach Putnam possibly projecting as a reliever, the best starting pitching prospect in Michigan could be righthander Anthony Bass of Wayne State, an NCAA Division II program. Bass has a 90-92 mph fastball that peaks at 94, a curveball with some bite and a decent changeup. While at Trenton (Mich.) High, Bass struck out 19 batters in one game to break J.J. Putz's school record.
