Former USC LHP Matt Chico also has people wondering where he'll be picked. A Red Sox second-rounder out of a San Diego high school two years ago, Chico flunked out of school in the fall semester of his sophomore year at USC because he didn't attend classes, and he wasn't even eligible to play at Palomar JC when he transferred there after Christmas. He spent this spring pitching on Sundays in a San Diego semipro league. He has attracted as many as 15 scouts a game, but he hasn't shown the same 92-93 mph velocity or command that he had in high school. He's also put on weight and is out of shape. Chico turned down almost $700,000 out of high school because his father wanted him to go to college, and he'll be offered only a fraction of that amount this time.
