17 526 Pittsburgh Pirates Hayden Hurst RHP Fla. $400,000
Hurst has already had Tommy John surgery, but at 6-foot-5, 225 pounds, he's a power arm, having touched 95 mph. More regularly, he sits in the 88-92 mph range with cutting action and life on the pitch. His slurvy breaking ball doesn't do much for scouts right now, though he has the hand speed to spin it. His early Tommy John surgery is likely to scare teams off his trail. He's committed to Florida State.
28 877 New York Yankees D.J. Stewart OF Fla.
Another part of Florida State's intriguing recruiting class, 6-foot, 215-pound D.J. Stewart has power potential as a lefthanded hitter with a strong but long swing. A successful football running back, Stewart played mostly outfield in high school but drew more scouting interest when he caught for teammate (and fellow FSU signee) Hayden Hurst, showing he could handle velocity. He'd be an interesting conversion project if he can be pried away from Florida State.
