Drafted in the 4th round (114th overall) by the Montreal Expos in 2004 (signed for $290,000)
The 6-foot-6, 180-pound Balester made huge strides this spring, improving his stock from a probable mid-round selection. With no college options, he may become a desirable selection for a team looking for a bargain in the fifth or sixth rounds. Balester didn't dominate at the high school level, going 6-4, 1.63 with 63 strikeouts in 64 innings, but he's a projectable righthander with a loose arm. He works at 91-92 mph with his fastball and has touched 94-95. He has issues with his delivery but has shown a capacity for spinning a breaking ball, though his curve is just adequate.
