    Six-foot-10 RHP Jon Rauch showed the potential to become a first-round pick after his MVP performance last summer in the Shenandoah Valley League, where he sported a 95-mph fastball and struck out 126 in 85 innings. He'll still be the highest pick in the state despite struggling to reach even 90-91 this year. He was not in shape at the start of the season and struggled throughout the spring to regain velocity. His slider was better, however, and he learned to pitch inside. If Rauch goes before the fourth or fifth round, it will be off his summer performance.
