    Doetsch is a junior college version of Harrison with even better tools. He runs and throws better and projects as a pro center fielder. A specimen at 6-foot-3 and 205 pounds, Doetsch still has to prove he can hit consistently. He did make some strides this year at Indian River CC, but he still needs to shorten his stride, become more disciplined and make other adjustments. He struggles against breaking balls. A 2002 eighth-round pick by Philadelphia, Doetsch is the best juco position player in the 2003 draft. He doesn't have a good relationship with the Phillies, so teams have sent crosscheckers in to see him-which is uncommon for top draft-and-follows.
