Boof Bonser, rhp
Gibbs HS; Pinellas Park, Fla.

Bonser may have the best name in the draft, but he wasn't seriously considered as a prospect until he dropped 20-30 pounds in the offseason and got himself into better pitching shape. Scouts still have major questions about his body and desire to excel. He had some positive outings this spring where he hit 92-93 mph and topped out at 96 on his way to a 7-3, 1.88 season with 111 strikeouts in 63 innings. He played first base when he didn't pitch. He is one of the most signable players in the draft.
