9 300 St. Louis Cardinals Rowan Wick C Calif. $75,000
A 19th-round pick out of a Vancouver high school in 2010, Wick started his collegiate career at St. John's before transferring to Cypress. He created some buzz among scouts in the fall but had a pedestrian spring for Cypress, hitting .310 in just 87 at-bats, though he heated up down the stretch and finished with a team-best six homers. At 6-foot-4, 225 pounds, Wick stands out for his plus to plus-plus raw power, but his feel for hitting is a huge question mark. He also has an above-average arm and average speed. Wick's raw tools are intriguing, but he has a long way to go to harness them.
38 1162 Cincinnati Reds Daniel Poncedeleon RHP Calif.
Ponce de Leon burst onto the prospect landscape as a Cypress freshman last fall, when he touched 94 mph with a promising slider/cutter and curveball. His stock dropped in the spring, when he settled into the 87-91 mph range and struggled with his control. At his best, he has shown a good curveball, but it has been slower and loopier for most of the spring. His 84-86 mph cutter can have late movement, but he cannot command either secondary pitch with any consistency. He also has a rigid one-piece arm action with effort, and scouts are not enamored with his emotional mound demeanor. Ponce de Leon is something of a lottery ticket with a chance down the road thanks to his 6-foot-4, 185-pound frame and makings of a solid repertoire, if he can ever refine it.
