Drafted in the 1st round (16th overall) by the Chicago White Sox in 2001 (signed for $1,500,000)
Honel opened the year as the fourth-ranked high school pitching prospect in the nation and missed a month with a strained ligament in his wrist. His velocity was way down when he returned, temporarily alarming scouts, before he returned to his old self and cemented his status as a first-rounder. His knuckle-curve is the best breaking ball in the prep ranks. He throws it at 79 mph, and it combines power and bite. Honel also has the requisite fastball, averaging 90-93 mph and reaching 95. He has smooth mechanics, especially for a 6-foot-5 youngster. He's expected to go in the middle of the first round and could prove tempting to the local White Sox, who pick 16th.
