Drafted in the 7th round (205th overall) by the Philadelphia Phillies in 2003 (signed for $135,000)
Kendrick projected as a possible early-round pick as a sophomore, but his stock slipped because of a subpar performance as a junior. A fastball that measured 84-86 mph last year, though, has returned to the low 90s. His 81 mph slider also has been effective pitch. The 6-foot-3, 175-pound Kendrick, also a top-rated quarterback in high school, is one of the state's best athletes and waited until April to sign with Washington State so he could keep open his option of playing both football and baseball in college. Had he signed with the Cougars in November in the NCAA's early signing period for baseball, he could not have played football for two years. Kendrick's athletic ability is superior to his arm action and feel for pitching at this point.
