    First baseman Cody Decker played the lead as a senior in his high school play, often changing out of acting garb to rush over to the baseball clubhouse and put his uniform on. Now a college senior, he set career highs in average (.322) and home runs (21) this spring, feasting on anything middle-in. His shorter frame and high strikeout total--58 in 2009--may depress his draft position, but Decker's power should draw draft attention.
