Outfielder Lee Haydel probably would lose a race to Jared Mitchell--but not by much. He's another top-of-the-line runner who has been clocked at 6.39 seconds in the 60-yard dash. He has fine instincts and a solid arm in center field, and scouts compare him to Scott Podsednik. Also a wide receiver in football and a star sprinter, Haydel led Riverside Academy to the state Class 2-A baseball title this spring. The big concern with Haydel, as it is with Mitchell, is how much he'll hit. He's just 5-foot-11 and 170 pounds, and he's so raw at the plate that he might not be ready to start for Louisiana State as a freshman if he attends college. Those who like him say he uses a basic slap-hitting approach only because he has been asked to do so, and that he has the bat speed to be a threat at the plate. A team that really likes Haydel could pop him as early as the third round. He fits the profile of a typical Braves draftee, and Atlanta has monitored him closely.
