    Jeff Holm was player of the year and nearly won the triple crown in the Prospect League last summer, then did the same in the Big Ten Conference this spring. He led the Big Ten with 61 RBIs and ranked second with a .376 average and nine homers--nearly doubling his career total of five in three previous seasons at Michigan State. One of the best senior signs in the Midwest, Holm controls the strike zone and makes contact from the left side of the plate. The 6-foot-3, 210-pounder collapses on his backside and has an uphill stroke, so he doesn't generate a lot of backspin and may top out at 15-20 homers in pro ball. That's not the power teams want at first base, where Holm is a quality defender, but he has the average speed and enough arm strength to move to the outfield.
