Drafted in the 4th round (147th overall) by the San Diego Padres in 2007 (signed for $50,000)
Lance Zawadzki's path to NAIA Lee University was a circuitous one. He began his college career at Louisiana State but never played for the Tigers, instead transferring to San Diego State. He missed playing time as a freshman in 2004 with appendicitis, a dislocated knee and a pulled hamstring, but batted .335-10-53 in 2005. He fell to .243-3-26 in 2006, and as his performance suggests, Zawadzki's game is erratic. The Cardinals drafted him in the 15th round last year, but he elected to transfer to Lee. He was also drafted by the then-Expos in the 48th round out of high school in 2003. He has intriguing tools, with plus bat speed, plus raw power and lively actions in the middle of the diamond. A switch-hitter, he sprays the ball to all fields from the right side. He uses his hands a little better from the left side, pulling the ball with authority. Zawadzki is also a plus runner and has a well-above-average arm. He will likely sign for slot money somewhere in the sixth to eighth round.
