Righthander Richie Lentz is part of a storied Seattle baseball family that started with father Mike, the No. 2 overall pick in the 1975 draft. Older brother Ryan (1996-98) and younger brother Andy also have worn the Huskies' purple and gold. Lentz was emerging as a top prospect in 2004, dominating summer ball in the Pacific International League, before succumbing to another family tradition--major injuries. His was Tommy John surgery, and he had worked less than 10 innings in 2006. His velocity is back up to 91-94 mph, and he had yet to issue a walk in limited time, but the redshirt sophomore was fighting health questions and a two-year playing gap when it comes to the draft. He might be drafted and followed through summer ball, and if he maintains his stuff a team could make an August run at him.
