Theriot teams with Fontenot to form college baseball's most talented double-play combination, and they were dazzling together on the Cape Cod League's Wareham Gatemen last summer. He's undersized at 5-foot-11 and 177 pounds, though he's answered questions about his bat by hitting .299 with wood on the Cape and a career-high .360 this spring. He's a catalyst from the leadoff spot, where his speed, ability to make contact and patience are assets. Theriot has a solid arm and hands at shortstop despite making careless errors this season. Tennessee's Chris Burke projects as a pro second baseman, so Theriot will be the first pure shortstop drafted out of college. A team looking for infield help could take him as early as the supplemental first round.
