    While OF Matt Diaz has hit more than 20 home runs in each of his first two seasons at Florida State, scouts still question whether his power is legitimate. A quality college hitter, Diaz hits a lot of balls to the opposite field, which plays well at FSU's cozy Dick Howser Stadium. His outfield skills are just average. The draft-eligible sophomore will likely return to school for another year.
