    Devin Shepherd entered the season as the nation's top juco prospect, having been an unsigned fifth-round pick of the Twins out of a California high school in 2006. After spending one season at Oklahoma, Shepherd shined last summer in the California Collegiate League, then backtracked using wood bats for CCSN. He was awful early, then rallied to finish at .343 but showing power (one home run). Scouts knock Shepherd for his lack of energy, inability to bring his raw power to bear in games and spotty ability to make contact. He remains athletic, a big man who can run and an impressive 5 o'clock hitter. While he was earlier committed to Oregon State, he's now believed to have switched to UC Santa Barbara.
