    Prevost played basketball and baseball in high school, when he was tall and gangly and stood out more on the court. He took time to grow into his body and made just 12 appearances in his first two seasons at Seton Hall, but now he's positioned as one of the top seniors for the 2014 draft. He was 11-2, 1.76 this spring and won Big East Conference pitcher of the year honors. The 6-foot-8, 220-pounder turned down the Athletics as a nondrafted free agent last summer and has continued to improve, touching 94 mph with his fastball and sitting 89-93 with his sinker most of the season. The pitch has sink as well as boring action in to righthanded hitters, and he complements it with a hard slider and an average changeup. Prevost was a fifth- to sixth-round talent who could go out higher as a money-saving senior.
