Jenks is one of the more unlikely players under consideration for the first 100 picks. He no longer attends high school in Idaho and hasn't pitched in a structured spring environment for two years. He has played American Legion ball in the summer and has been seen at showcases and contrived workouts, most recently in Seattle. What scouts see is one of the best raw power arms in the country. Jenks has outstanding stuff, routinely touching 93-94 mph with a power curve. And he does it effortlessly. As he has quit high school altogether now, he could be a bargain for a team looking for a cheap pick in the second or third rounds. Any team considering him, however, is forewarned that he has questionable makeup and an unconventional background. His family lives in a log cabin in a tiny, remote town in Idaho.
