    Ben Soignier played all nine positions for Louisiana-Monroe in an 11-7 victory over Houston Baptist on May 15, collecting three hits (including a double and a homer) and striking out two in a scoreless ninth inning. A regular reliever for the Warhawks, Soignier has set several single-season and career school hitting records and will be a position player in pro ball. The 6-foot, 190-pound righthanded hitter has good pop for a middle infielder and a knack for getting on base. His below average speed likely will dictate a move from shortstop to second base, but he does have a strong arm. A fifth-year senior who redshirted at Alabama in 2005, Soignier was drafted by the Marlins in the 17th round last year.
