Drafted in the 2nd round (88th overall) by the Toronto Blue Jays in 2007 (signed for $384,750)
After a brilliant performance at the Area Code Games last summer, outfielder Eric Eiland generated buzz as a possible first-round pick. Billed as the best high school athlete to come out of Houston since Carl Crawford, Eiland didn't live up to that tag while battling left hamstring problems. The injury robbed him of his plus speed and restricted his spring. Eiland was raw at the plate to begin with, and it's likely that a club will draft him and evaluate him in summer ball before deciding whether to sign him. A reported $1 million price tag may mean that he winds up at Texas A&M.
