Like his outfield mate Davidson at Washington, Jay Garthwaite has impressive bat speed and can put a charge in the ball. He ranked among Pac-10 leaders in both homers and RBIs even after his bat cooled off at midseason. Garthwaite was a 12th-round pick three years ago and should go a little higher this year, though he'll still be the fourth U-Dub player picked. It's not clear he can make the necessary adjustments to hit professional pitching. He pulls his head out on pitches, causing him to swing and miss a lot. A center fielder in college, he projects as a left fielder in pro ball
