9 280 Minnesota Twins L.J. Mazzilli Jr. 2B Conn.
The son of former major league player and manager Lee Mazzilli, L.J. has obvious bloodlines to go with his athleticism and offense. He has been a consistent hitter for the Huskies and was batting .325/.392/.557 with nine home runs in 212 at-bats this spring. He stands at a 6-foot-1, 190 pounds and has a good, balanced approach at the plate to go with a direct swing. He can hit to all fields and showed more pop this year, though he will have fringe-average power at best. He profiles best as an offensive-minded second baseman, if he can make the grade defensively. He had 17 errors in 51 games this season, but scouts say he could become passable with development. He tends to sit back on balls, which can cause hops to eat him up and force him to rush throws. His arm is average. He's an average runner and can swipe some bases, but it won't be a big part of his game.
15 468 Colorado Rockies Scott Oberg RHP Conn.
18 564 Washington Nationals David Fischer RHP Conn.
Fischer is a big-bodied guy (6-foot-5, 200 pounds) with arm strength. His fastball ranges from 88-94 mph and he has a decent breaking ball that can be slurvy at times.
