    Outfielder Byron Wiley hit .366 as a sophomore, setting the stage for him to go in the first five rounds of the 2008 draft. Then he hit .217 in the Cape Cod League and .227 while losing his starting job this spring. He appears to be a victim of draftitis, trying to do too much to impress scouts. Instead, Wiley has chased too many pitches and stopped making hard contact. He looks better in batting practice and still displays speed and some raw strength, so someone may take a flier on him.
