Drafted in the 9th round (285th overall) by the San Diego Padres in 2012 (signed for $100,000)
Stevens, who transferred from Palomar JC near his home in San Marcos, Calif., to Hancock for his sophomore year, hit .449 (leading all California juco players) with a .530 OBP (second in the state) this spring. Though he isn't physical at 6 feet, 165 pounds, Stevens is wiry and has quick hands and good pitch recognition, helping him rip hard line drives all around the field. He also flashes occasional pull power, giving him a chance for nearly average power in time. He's an average runner with average arm strength, though scouts aren't sold on his defensive instincts. Stevens signed late with Cal State Fullerton.
