4 117 San Francisco Giants Jason Stoffel RHP Ariz. $254,700
The 6-foot-1, 225-pound Stoffel looked like a no-doubt first-rounder entering the season, and while he still flashes a fastball that sits 93-95 mph and a slider that can be unhittable, he has been inconsistent. His fastball and slider have straightened out and lost a few ticks at times this season, and his numbers this season aren't those of a dominant reliever. But Stoffel became Arizona's career saves leader this season with 26 and counting, passing Mark Melancon. Scouts who have seen him good put Stoffel in the same class as Arizona's first-round pitchers from last season, Ryan Perry and Daniel Schlereth. He's a fierce competitor but falls into the trap of many relievers in pitching to the situation. He pitches better in close games, and can lose focus when he comes in with a cushion. Some question Stoffel's decision to pass on pitching in the Cape Cod League or for Team USA the past two summers.
8 245 Cleveland Indians Cory Burns RHP Ariz. $35,000
Senior righthander Cory Burns pitched over the top last year, then dropped down to sidearm this year and is 88-90 mph with Wiffle Ball movement that makes him really hard to square up. He also has a decent slider and changeup and should be a late-round pick.
9 275 Cleveland Indians Preston Guilmet RHP Ariz. $35,000
A 22nd-round pick by the Athletics last season, righthander Preston Guilmet returned to Arizona for his senior year and pitched better than his 6-5 record would indicate. He struck out 93 and walked 34 over 91 innings while maintaining a 3.74 ERA. His stuff is essentially the same as last year, with a fastball in the 87-90 mph range. He mixes his pitches well, spots his fastball and changeup and knows how to pitch. For breaking balls, he throws a slider and a split-finger fastball, and while they can be difficult to tell apart they are both out pitches at times.
11 351 Los Angeles Angels Dillon Baird 3B Ariz.
Playing first base for the Wildcats is 6-foot-2, 215-pound Dillon Baird, a high school shortstop who is nimble around the bag and adept at picking balls out of the dirt. He's a good runner and has one of the strongest arms on the team, but it's his bat that's been the most impressive this season. Baird led the Pac-10 in batting as part of a .433/.504/.716 line, giving him the sixth-best single-season batting average in school history. Scouts aren't sure he'll be able to duplicate those numbers in pro ball, however.
18 545 Cleveland Indians Dwight Childs C Ariz.
Catcher Dwight Childs has handled good pitchers during his three-year stint at Arizona. He was also a member of the 2005 USA Baseball junior team that included Clayton Kershaw, Brett Anderson, Lars Anderson and Grant Green, among others. After batting .193 last season, he hit the weight room in the offseason to get stronger and batted .331/.385/.529 this season. Still, scouts aren't sure he'll hit enough to be a big league regular. His calling card is his defense. A catcher his whole life, he's comfortable behind the plate and blocks balls well. With a plus arm and pop times in the 1.8- to 2.0-second range, some scouts have even been tempted to try him out on the mound.
23 700 Toronto Blue Jays Brad Glenn OF Ariz.
Third baseman Brad Glenn is lucky to be alive after he severed an artery in his right wrist when he fell through a glass coffee table playing video games in the offseason. He recovered and hit .256 with 12 doubles and nine home runs this year, so he could be a senior sign.
