    There's no standout catcher in the college ranks this year, and Rabelo has a chance to be the first one drafted. The only Division II player invited to try out for Team USA in 2000, he has learned to switch-hit this spring, boosting his average from .278 as a sophomore to .367. He has yet to show the power expected of a 6-foot-1, 205-pounder, but he does have strength. Rabelo's catch-and-throw skills were considered ahead of his bat entering 2001, and they haven't slipped.
