Drafted in the 3rd round (94th overall) by the Houston Astros in 2004 (signed for $400,000)
The Phillies drafted Parraz in the sixth round last year, unsure whether he would be a pitcher or hitter. They didn't sign him but retained his rights when he enrolled at Southern Nevada, making him the highest pick from last year to became a draft-and-follow. A year later, it's no clearer where Parraz' upside is greater or whether the Phillies will make a push to sign him. The 6-foot-3, 225-pounder began the year in the Coyotes rotation and touched 96 mph, but his control was so erratic--both in and out of the strike zone--that he lost his job. He eventually took over in left field and became the leading hitter in the Scenic West Conference, a wood-bat league, while showing potential to hit with power. He wound up hitting .359-2-29. He has run the 60-yard dash in 6.6 seconds. Parraz doesn't showcase his tools well in games, but few players in this year's draft can match his five-tool potential.
