    Outfielder Chad Wright is a good college player who set career highs across the board this spring, when he hit .359 with 16 steals, but he's more of a tweener than a regular by pro standards. He helped his cause by hitting .300 with wood bats for Cape Cod League champion Cotuit last summer. A 5-foot-10, 195-pound lefthanded hitter, he sprays line drives all over the field. He doesn't project to have much power with wood. A good but not plus runner with a below-average arm, he played left field for the Wildcats.
