Krynzel made a strong case to become a first-round pick last summer when he starred for the victorious Team USA at the World Junior Championship in Taiwan. He jeopardized that status when he got off to a slow start this spring. Fortunately, the 6-foot-1, 180-pound Krynzel righted himself and has moved squarely into the top half of the first round. He has outstanding speed and all the qualities to be a top-notch defensive center fielder. He reminds scouts of Royals outfielder Johnny Damon, who was written off as a premium prospect in the 1992 draft when he struggled his senior year. Scouts learned a lesson then and won't let Krynzel slip, though his bat remains a question. He lacks power but puts the ball in play well. He has committed to Louisiana State.
