Drafted in the 1st round (25th overall) by the San Francisco Giants in 2002 (signed for $1,375,000)
Even if his teammate Conor Lalor hadn't gone down with an elbow injury, Cain would have surpassed him as the state's top prospect. He has gotten better with every start, throwing his fastball from 88-94 mph and his plus curveball at 76-77. At 6-foot-3 and 185 pounds, he has plenty of room for projection, and his aggressive style and makeup are further assets. He'll probably go somewhere from the sandwich area to the second round, which should be plenty high enough to divert him from attending college at Memphis.
