RHP/SS P.J. Finigan was the Missouri Valley Conference player of the year. He reminds some Midwest scouts of former Southwest Missouri State two-way star Shaun Marcum, who has developed rapidly after focusing on pitching with the Blue Jays. Though he's one of the region's top defensive shortstops and leads the Salukis with a .388 average, his future almost certainly lies on the mound. A four-year starter at shortstop, he totaled just 53 innings in his first three years of college before serving as a Saturday starter this year. He has a solid repertoire, with an 87-92 mph fastball, a solid slider and a changeup that might be his best pitch. Like Marcum, he could blossom once he gives up the rigors of playing shortstop.
