Chance Caple

Name: Chance Caple

Drafted in the 1st round (30th overall) by the St. Louis Cardinals in 1999 (signed for $1,200,000)
Six-foot-6, 215-pound RHP Chance Caple and 6-foot, 150-pound LHP Casey Fossum offered a contrasting look--and contrasting styles--to hitters as the top starters in the Texas A&M rotation. Caple, an eighth-round pick out of high school, has been slower to develop than Fossum, a seventh-round selection in the same draft. But with his bigger body, Caple projects a higher upside and should be drafted first. He started throwing a cut fastball this year to go with a solid 12-to-6 curveball, his strikeout pitch, and his new pitch gives him a different dimension when his curveball falters.
