    New York's most intriguing college player is Wagner righthander Andrew Bailey, whose workload this spring was limited because he was recovering from his May 2005 Tommy John surgery. Prior to breaking down last year, Bailey had garnered fifth- to 10th-round interest thanks to his power arm, and his velocity has climbed back to the 92-93 mph range, touching 94 now and then. Bailey relies on a heavy fastball with good boring action, and his curveball has good depth, but he tends to leave both pitches over the middle of the plate too much and has seemed tentative with his curve and changeup since returning from his injury. Scouts still have concerns about Bailey's violent delivery and tendency to overthrow, but he has enough arm strength and tenacity on the mound to make him stand out in a weak New York crop.
